With this in mind, let's take a moment to consider the various procedures that are part of a mommy makeover.
Changes to the Body After Pregnancy and Childbirth
Pregnancy and childbirth can both have major effects on the overall contour of a woman's body. Loose skin, stretch marks, stretched skin, and other issues are all common, and thankfully they can all be addressed through a mommy makeover that combines various effective body sculpting surgery options.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Given the amount of abdominal stretching that's caused by pregnancy, tummy tuck surgery is an important part of mommy makeover treatment. The tummy tuck procedures removes loose skin from the lower abdominal region, tightening the stomach area in order to get rid of stretch marks, sagging skin, and other major problems associated with skin laxity.
Breast Lift Surgery
A woman's breasts can droop and sag due to changes in size and fullness related to pregnancy and nursing. Breast lift surgery is ideal for making droopy breasts appear firm and perky again. During a breast lift, skin is carefully removed from the lower portion of the breasts in order to enhance overall firmness and pertness.
Thigh Lift Surgery
Thigh lift surgery is an ideal option to consider if a woman notices issues with her thighs after pregnancy and childbirth. The thigh lift targets the outer, upper, and inner thighs, allowing women to have the firm and appealing legs that they've always wanted.
Arm Lift Surgery
While the lower body and abdominal region are obviously affected by pregnancy and childbirth, the upper arms are similarly affected by weight gain and weight loss. This is especially true of the shoulders and the triceps, which may appear flabby or loose. The arm lift is performed in order to tighten that loose skin and give patients the toned and well-defined upper arms that they'd like to have.
Facial Plastic Surgery Options
Signs of advanced age can become more apparent after pregnancy and childbirth. This doesn't just mean lines and wrinkles but also drooping and sagging jowls, a drooping neckline, and loose skin around parts of the face. Various facial plastic surgery options are ideal for these matters, including the lower facelift and the neck lift, both of which can significantly improve issues with facial contour following weight gain and weight loss.
