NEW YORK, NY, August 14, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Pregnancy is one of the most beautiful experiences a woman can have. The joys and rewards of parenthood will enrich your life every day as you watch your young child grow and mature into a happy, well-rounded person.
Unfortunately, pregnancy and childbirth can also take its toll on your body, robbing you of the sexy figure you once enjoyed. Many women will gain as much as 25 pounds due to pregnancy, and often this weight is difficult to take off once your child is born. Even if you are successful at losing this baby weight, you may find that your body does not look proportionate afterwards.
Childbirth can also result in a stretching of the abdominal walls, making it difficult to maintain the toned, tight tummy you once had. Similarly, breastfeeding will cause your breasts to expand which can leave you with stretch marks and sagging that make you look older than you actually are.
A Mommy Makeover to Revitalize your Body
A mommy makeover is an ideal option to help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure. Your mommy makeover will consist of a series of plastic surgery procedures to reverse the impact childbirth has on your body. The end result will help you look younger and refreshed.
Your mommy makeover will be customized to address your unique physical attributes and aesthetic goals. Depending on how pregnancy has affected you, your plastic surgeon may recommend a combination of:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
- Buttock Augmentation
Restoring your Abdominal Region
Pregnancy will almost always take its toll on your abdominal region, causing the skin and muscles to stretch. A tummy tuck is an effective way to reverse these effects. During the procedure, excess skin will be removed and your abdominal muscles will be tightened to restore a flat, toned stomach. Your tummy tuck will also help address any visible stretch marks you have in the region. It is important to wait until you are done having children to undergo a tummy tuck, since future pregnancies may adversely impact your results.
Liposuction may also be recommended to help remove unwanted baby fat from your abdominal region. During liposuction, your plastic surgeon will liquefy the unwanted fat and suction it out using a thin tube called a cannula.
Restoring your Breasts
Pregnancy and breastfeeding often result in a loss of volume and skin elasticity to the breast region. This can cause premature sagging. There are two procedures which can help restore your breasts to their pre-pregnancy form. Breast augmentation is an ideal option if you have lost breast volume but do not experience much sagging. If you experience significant sagging, then a breast lift will be more effective at achieving your desired goals, restoring a perkier appearance to your breasts.
On some occasions, your plastic surgeon may recommend breast augmentation in conjunction with a breast lift to achieve the best possible results. This is often the case when you experience both sagging and lost volume.
Pregnancy often results in loss of volume and change in shape of the buttocks. This can be treated with buttock augmentation using fat transplantation which results in restored natural buttocks. It also allows for a restoring of balance between the breasts and the derriere.
