Restoring a Pre-Baby Body with a Mommy Makeover
Pregnancy and breastfeeding often result in noticeable yet undesirable changes on the body. For instance, the abdominal skin stretches and the muscles separate to accommodate the baby but do not return to their original state after childbirth. The breasts may sag on the chest wall following breastfeeding, losing their shape and perky appearance. Additionally, it is common for stubborn fat deposits around the body to linger following pregnancy.
Women who are unhappy with their appearance following pregnancy and nursing can benefit from mommy makeover. Mommy makeover refers to a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures to effectively restore (or improve upon) a woman’s pre-pregnancy body.
What a mommy makeover addresses
Mommy makeover can address an array of post-pregnancy and nursing concerns including:
- Sagging or deflated breasts that have lost their youthful shape
- Excess, loose breast skin
- Oversized or downward-pointing nipples
- Small, stubborn fat deposits on the abdomen that are resistant to weight loss efforts
- Loose, excess skin on the abdomen
- Weakened or separated abdominal muscles
