Most women will tell you that having children is not for the faint of heart. Not only is it emotionally challenging, but the process of being pregnant and delivering a baby can cause serious damage to your body. For years after childbirth, you will cherish your little ones, but you may also be paying for them physically for years to come. Some people struggle with complications from delivery for the rest of their lives. Fortunately, this does not have to be you! Mommy makeovers are a relatively new set of plastic surgery procedures that can give you back the body that you had before having kids. Heck, a mommy makeover could give you a better body than before kids!
As previously mentioned, several surgeries could make up your mommy makeover transformation. The ones you choose will depend on what you feel you need or want. They could include but are not limited to:
A Tummy Tuck
After having a baby stretch out the skin on your belly, it is sometimes challenging to get it back to form. If you do somehow get back to the size you were before childbirth, most people are left with colorful stretch marks that are unwelcome and unappreciated. A tummy tuck can undo this damage by removing a portion of the extra skin (and potentially underlying fat cells) as well as any stretch marks found superficially.
Breast Augmentation and Lift
As with the previously mentioned stretching and shrinking of the belly having lasting effects, a woman's breasts are never the same after nursing a baby. Many women's breasts begin to sag or may shrink due to the loss of milk and hormones that come with pregnancy. After a breast augmentation and lift, many women find that they have an increased amount of confidence, feeling young and alive once more.
The stretch of delivery is not a joke in the perineal area. Some women tear or need an episiotomy, and the vagina can begin to be loose or droop because of these challenges. A vaginal rejuvenation surgery can tighten up the area, giving you an increased amount of comfort and potentially sexual pleasure.
In conclusion, turning back the clock is possible with a mommy makeover. You already did the work to bear children, you do not need to keep paying for it! Contact a plastic surgeon near you if you are interested in plastic surgery.
