Many women are now opting for mommy makeover surgery, especially after a pregnancy. This is because they want to get their body back in shape and a popular solution is to consider various forms of plastic surgery. Plastic surgery, in general, seeks to restore a person’s form by reconstructing some parts of the body mainly by recontouring tissue.
One of the most popular forms of plastic surgery is cosmetic surgery also known as aesthetic surgery. Many women seek this form of surgery in order to keep their bodies in the form and shape they desire.
Breast Lift Procedures
Breast lift, also known as mastopexy is one popular mommy makeover procedure that women opt for. Most women do not like droopy breasts. They want to have firm breasts in order to retain good shape. Droopy breasts may result from post pregnancy effects associated with breastfeeding, and losing weight.
Mainly, women who have had at least two children whom they have breastfed would need to undergo a breast lift surgery. Mastopexy is the most common type of breast lift procedure. This procedure deals with the shifting of the nipple areolar complex to a higher position on the chest.
Some women require implants in their breasts to go with the lift procedure especially if there is a loss of the fullness of the breasts.
Another popular mommy makeover procedure is the tummy tuck. This procedure, which is also known as abdominoplasty, is intended for those who want to remove excess fat from their tummy or abdomen. They seek to regain their earlier shape by tightening the muscles around the tummy.
This procedure is also used on those who wish to minimize the stretch marks and any other scars that may be on the abdomen. At the same time, one may develop folds on the skin after losing weight or develop a stretched skin after delivery. A tummy tuck procedure would then be used to tighten the loose skin.
The results of the tummy tuck procedure are normally long lasting especially if the woman maintains a healthy diet regime which ensures that one has the right weight at all times after the procedure.
While preparing for tummy tuck you will be advised on how best to go about it. For example, a smoker will be advised to stop smoking as this would increase the possibility of wound infections. It may also slow down the recovery process. It would also be important to lose excess weight before undergoing the tummy tuck procedure for best possible results.
Liposuction may be used as an alternative option to the tummy tuck procedure. It works by sucking excess fat which may be under the skin.
Any of these procedures are common for women who seek to return their body to its pre-pregnancy shape and form.
