A recent study revealed that roughly 61% of expecting moms said they intended to lose their baby weight by the time their child’s first birthday rolled around. But, not surprisingly, that same survey revealed that nearly 60% of mothers of 1- to 2-year-olds were still carrying unwanted weight. The best-laid plans to get back into your old jeans are often destroyed by the chaos of motherhood.
This is why the Mommy Makeover procedure has really grown in popularity over the last few years. It’s not a single plastic surgery. It’s a fully bespoke combination of a few surgeries customized to address each individual complaint.
It could include things like liposuction, a tummy tuck, breast implants, or a breast lift. Here are some of the most stubborn parts of the body that a Mommy Makeover can help you fix.
1. The Stomach/Core
We probably don’t have to tell you that this is the most notoriously difficult area to trim. You can easily do countless crunches and run endless miles, and still not be happy with how your tummy looks.
The Mommy Makeover often includes liposuction and/or a tummy tuck procedure. Liposuction can help you remove the unwanted fat in your stalwart stomach area, while a tummy tuck would also remove the extra skin you may be dealing with.
2. The Breasts
Your procedure could include a breast lift, or breast implants, or a breast lift with implants.
A lot of women look in the mirror and see the impact that time, gravity, and motherhood have had on their breasts. They now have sagging breasts or downward-pointing nipples, and no amount of diet or exercise can help.
The right breast procedure can completely change your silhouette and help you love the way clothes fit again.
3. The Lower Back
The dreaded back-fat can be almost impossible to lose. Rows, pull-ups, and Pilates are all supposed to help. But they never help as much as you would like.
A liposuction procedure can also help you trim and tone this area of your body. Today’s energy-assisted liposuction devices will also break up the fat cells before extraction, which results in a very small incision, no pain, minimal bruising, and a fast recovery time.
4. The Legs
Your Mommy Makeover can also include cellulite treatment or non-surgical body contouring treatments on your legs.
Like the other stubborn parts of the body we have already discussed, getting rid of cellulite and dimpling on the upper legs can be maddening. No amount of squats or lunges can really seem to do it. But today’s modern body contouring options can give you the smooth legs you’re looking for.
Is the Mommy Makeover right for you? It very well could be. If you’re only looking to address one part of your body, a single procedure could be a more cost-effective way to give you the results you’re looking for.
But, if you want to attack more than one area, your best bet could be to reach out to a plastic surgeon to discuss all of your options.
