It may be called the mommy makeover but it isn’t just for moms. While the procedure is specifically designed to target post-pregnancy concerns, the mommy makeover can help nearly any woman attain a more youthful figure, especially those who have lost weight, suffered from illness or seen the effects of aging on their bodies.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover can mean something different to each woman but usually includes a tummy tuck to smooth and tighten skin and repair separated muscles, as well as some form of breast enhancement.
Customize Your Makeover
By working together with a skilled cosmetic surgeon, you can customize your mommy makeover to fit your body and lifestyle.
Some women choose to include a breast lift instead of breast implants, for example. Liposuction can help contour the abdomen, back, love handles, thighs, arms or neck to target specific problem spots.
Women may also elect to combine their mommy makeovers with nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, laser hair removal, spider vein treatment or chemical peels.
The Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
Loose abdominal muscles, deflated breasts, and sagging tummy skin can happen to any woman, not just moms.
One of the benefits of a mommy makeover is less overall recovery time when procedures are combined rather than performed separately. Depending on the practice, another benefit of getting a mommy makeover can be the smaller price tag compared getting separate procedures.
The greatest benefit of all, though, is the greater sense of positivity women can feel after reclaiming a more youthful figure as they move forward in life, whether as a mother or not.
