Carrying, birthing and nurturing a child are amazing abilities that cause dramatic change in the life of every mother, and can have equally dramatic changes on her body. For women who want to go back to a pre-baby body, Amerejuve offers the Mommy Makeover.
Skin and muscle stretched by the pregnancy can appear flabby. Breasts that expanded to hold milk may look deflated once the baby is weaned. A surgical Mommy Makeover targets the changes a woman experiences from pregnancy.
Every mom should consult with a surgeon to determine the best approach for achieving her goals. Three common procedures are the breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction.
Mommy Makeover: Breast Lift
Breast lifts seek to make breasts higher and firmer, creating a more youthful profile. There are a number of techniques that can be used for this surgery, so the surgeon will determine the best option for each patient. This procedure can be paired with a breast augmentation where implants are inserted to increase the size of the breasts.
Mommy Makeover: Tummy Tuck
This procedure sculpts and re-contours the abdomen. In a tummy tuck, the underlying muscle is tightened and excess fat and skin are removed to create a firmer, smoother abdominal area. Some initial studies have also shown that this procedure may help prevent future weight gain, though more research is needed.
Mommy Makeover: Liposuction
In liposuction, unwanted fat is removed from localized areas, allowing for specific targeting and effects. A tube is inserted through small incisions in the skin and suction is applied to remove the fat. The procedure can target almost any area of the body, including abdomen, thighs or neck, and can be paired with other surgeries.
