Motherhood is a wonderful journey. However, what it can do to the body is less than magical. Many women in the area of Austin, TX who have gone through pregnancy, childbirth, and even significant weight fluctuations in-between may be unhappy with the body that has been left behind. With lost breast volume, sagging breasts, excess skin in the abdominal area, and unwanted fat deposits in the thighs, many women are embarrassed by their post-baby body. With the help of a cosmetic plastic surgeon in the community, women can regain control over their appearance and feel more confident in their body with the “mommy makeover” surgery.
What is a “mommy makeover?”
A mommy makeover isn’t just a new hairstyle or upgraded makeup techniques. Instead, the mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures used to enhance a woman’s body after years of changes caused by weight fluctuations, aging, pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Some of the common problem areas includes the breasts, tummy, and thighs which may lose volume, hold onto stubborn fat, or droop.
What procedures are included in a mommy makeover?
The more common procedures used during this treatment include:
- Breast lift
- Breast augmentation
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
Women with sagging or deflated breasts will find that a breast lift combined with breast augmentation (using breast implants) can help bring the chest to a higher, more youthful position while adding volume and size. Liposuction in the tummy and thigh area is performed, and a tummy tuck is done to remove excess skin that may remain after liposuction of the abdominal area. Any other areas of the body that patients are concerned about, such as excess skin or fat in the arms or flank area, might be addressed at the same time. Developing your customized mommy makeover starts with a consultation with the providers at Austin Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
