MOMMY MAKEOVER!

Mommy MakeOver!

Yes, This is the term that is making the eyes of every mother twinkle, followed by a smile of course. After a few years and a couple of children, many women today are deciding to get their bodies back with a mommy makeover.

What is Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover is a unique cosmetic surgical procedure designed specifically for women who wish to enhance their appearance and regain their pre-pregnancy figure. Pregnancy, breastfeeding and aging can all take a toll on a woman’s body. Some of the most common effects are breast sagging and loss of volume, as well as stretch marks and excess fat around the abdomen. The combination of breast augmentation with or without breast lift, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and liposuction will result in the significant improvement in body contour.

Reasons for Considering a Mommy Makeover?

After pregnancy, your breast may have lost volume or look droopy, and your stomach may look loose with extra skin and stretch marks. Most Moms usually just want their pre-pregnancy bodies back, or perhaps to look even better than they did before having children! It used to be that women were resigned to living with these natural changes in their bodies.

Now however, more and more women are seeking out plastic surgeons to rejuvenate their breasts and tummies to the youthful firmness they enjoyed before having children.

Am I a good candidate for mommy makeover surgery?
