Having a child is a wonderful experience, but pregnancy can produce significant changes in a woman’s body. These changes may include sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, a thicker waist, and stubborn fat deposits. A mommy makeover can help to address these issues for a more confident you. Read on to learn more about the surgical options that may be included in a mommy makeover.
Pregnancy causes the abdominal skin and muscles to stretch to accommodate the larger belly. This can result in loose skin, stretch marks, and lax stomach muscles. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, can remove excess skin and fat, as well as restore abdominal muscles for a flatter stomach.
Breast Augmentation and/or Lift
Pregnancy also leads to breast enlargement, causing them to droop. Breast augmentation, which is often done along with a breast lift, can help to return the breasts to a more youthful shape and position. A breast reduction can also sometimes be done for women whose breasts remain too large after pregnancy.
Following pregnancy, many women experience a thicker waistline or stubborn fat deposits in the hips and thighs. Liposuction can remove this fat to contour the body. It is very versatile and can be done on almost any area of the body to produce a slimmer you.
Lower Body Lift
During pregnancy, your skin around your lower abdomen and hips stretches significantly to accommodate a growing child. It can be hard for the skin in older mothers to snap back into place, and skin tightening or a lower body lift can correct this.
As you can see, a mommy makeover can accomplish quite a lot to help women look and feel their best after childbirth. If you are interested in learning more about the mommy makeover procedure in the Baltimore area, contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenberg.
