Mommy makeover is a combination of aesthetic procedures which are done to deal with the negative effects that pregnancy brings to the woman’s body, specifically the breasts and the tummy. Breast enlargement occurs during pregnancy. This is caused by two problems. First is when the skin gets stretched, creating a loss of elasticity and a minor sagginess to the breasts. There are also instances when the breast loses some tissues. As a result, the breasts become deflated at the top and bottom out. Regarding the issue in the belly, the tissue between the muscles gets stretched, causing the abdominal wall to weaken. This is one of the components of having an enlarged abdomen after pregnancy. The belly button also gets distorted and the skin is stretched, producing stretch marks.
Any breast procedure combined with any tummy procedure refers to a mommy makeover. It can be a breast lift with augmentation and a tummy tuck, or a breast augmentation with a tummy tuck, or a breast augmentation with hourglass hips, or a breast lift without augmentation and a tummy tuck, among others. The combined procedures can make your breasts look nicer and can give you a better shape which includes a tighter and flatter abdomen.
Once you undergo the procedure, you are guaranteed that your body will achieve a pre-pregnancy look. Take note that you will never have the exact same pre-pregnancy body because the surgery cannot solve your lost elasticity. Every aspect of your body will be tighter relative to where you were prior to surgery. Notice also that a mommy makeover does not include the buttocks, which can be affected by pregnancy. Some women develop stretch marks and sagginess of the buttocks, but a mommy makeover does not include buttock augmentation or lifting. It depends on you which of the combined procedures will you take but you have to consider your needs.
