After having children and raising their families, many women want to recapture their glory days of youth. However, after being mothers day after day, this seems like a far-fetched dream. But as plastic surgery has evolved over the years, new and innovative techniques have now made it possible to give hard-working moms the great bodies they once had years ago. Known as a mommy makeover, this process is a customized plan of treatments that culminates in making a woman look so good her husband and kids may not recognize her. If you’re interested in a mommy makeover, here’s what you need to know.
Goals of a Mommy Makeover
With most of these procedures, the goal is to provide the patient with a flattened tummy, breasts that are once again perky, and to do away with excess skin that is stretched. In addition, sagging thighs and buttocks can be lifted, while arms, hips, and other areas of the body can be contoured by the surgeon to look years younger.
Why Have a Mommy Makeover?
Since the mommy makeover is also often referred to as post-pregnancy rejuvenation surgery, most of the reasons women have for wanting this procedure have to do with how having kids impacted their bodies. For example, many women who breastfed their babies may now have breasts that sag and droop. Also, some have tummies that still have areas of fat that did not disappear following the post-pregnancy weight loss. Whatever the case may be, Dr. Meger will listen to your concerns during a private consultation and then recommend how to proceed.
Who are the Best Candidates for Mommy Makeovers?
Along with making sure they are healthy enough to undergo various surgical procedures, the best candidates for mommy makeovers are those women who do not plan on having any more children, since additional pregnancies following the surgery will stretch the skin and require additional rounds of plastic surgery to correct.
