Mommy makeover? Many of you have probably heard this term from friends or from surfing the internet. But what does it mean and is it something for you? Let’s have a look. Mommy Makeover is a flashy term that is intended to catch the attention of women in their mid-thirties to mid-forties who are looking for a pick-me-up, feel good about myself solution to the changes they see in their bodies following pregnancy. While some women pass through pregnancy with hardly a difference in their physical appearance, the vast majority see unwanted changes in their breasts and abdomen leading them to seek solutions.
Following breastfeeding, women’s breasts can sag or lose considerable volume leaving an “empty bag” appearance. Their pre-pregnancy form and projection are lost and the nipples are pointing downwards.
The abdomen is also an area greatly affected by pregnancy. A woman’s flat tummy may be replaced with stretch marks and an excess of skin that often hangs over pants and waistlines. Wearing tight fitting clothes and a bathing suit may become more difficult leading some women to feel self-conscious.
These changes are normal and natural. What is different from the past, however, is the number of safe and reliable procedures available to correct these concerns. You no longer have to “just deal with it” and live the rest of your life wishing something could be done to help you feel good about your body.
A mommy makeover is tailored to the needs of each individual. It may involve separately, or in combination, breast lifting, breast augmentation, tummy tuck or thigh lifting. Information about each of these procedures is found on our website.
