Becoming pregnant, having a baby and breastfeeding can all be amazing experiences but they can all make significant changes to a woman’s body. Many women feel self-conscience about these changes and it affects their confidence levels. If you have experienced aesthetic changes to your body due to pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding that you are unhappy with then a mommy makeover may be the perfect solution. Today we are talking about what procedures can be included in your individual mommy makeover package.
What Types Of Damage Does A Mommy Makeover Correct?
1. Cosmetic damage
Cosmetic damage is often the type of damage that causes women the most emotional stress as they feel others can see it. Loose skin with stretch marks on the abdomen, flat, saggy, or deflated breasts, pockets of lumpy, bulging, or excess fat in all the wrong places.
It is no secret that during pregnancy and childbirth the female body goes through a plethora of hormonal changes and then adds the fatigue of the sleepless nights and having to be all things to all people! These can all work together to wreak havoc on the skin or show up as a big neon sign, right on her face. Dark undereye circles or bags, dry lifeless looking skin, maybe there has been no desire or time for routine hair removal.
A mommy makeover can address every one of these cosmetic issues and bring back a more youthful-looking face and body with a healthy glow.
2. Structural damage
Sometimes pregnancy and childbirth can cause structural damage to a woman’s body. Core muscles in the abdomen or pelvic floor that are structurally important can become damaged or torn and can cause issues. The damage caused can manifest aesthetically but more seriously lead to back pain, urinary incontinence, or even involuntary bowel leakage. Damage can also occur to the vagina or surrounding areas that can result in sexual dysfunction.
Thanks to the advancements in cosmetic surgeries and procedures, women do not have to resign themselves to living with these issues for the rest of their lives.
What Is Included In A Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover can include any surgical procedure, non-surgical cosmetic treatment, med spa service, or injectable that is used to restore a woman’s self-esteem by reversing any damage done to a woman’s body resulting from pregnancy and childbirth. Mommy makeovers are customized to meet each patient’s needs and aesthetic desires.
The typical mommy makeover includes three primary procedures: liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast lift sometimes with breast implants. Below you can see before and after photos of Dr. Angelina’s patients who had undergone the standard surgical mommy makeover.
