Mommy Makeover Surgery - Cosmetic Enhancement After Pregnancy
By The Landings Surgical Centre on April 04, 2013
After having a baby, a woman's body will undergo a number of changes. This is just a fact of life and biology. Loose or stretched skin is common, as are stretch marks and sagging in certain parts of the body. While diet and exercise can address a few of these issues, the only way to really restore your appearance to the way it was prior to childbirth is to undergo New Brunswick plastic surgery. There are numerous procedures that can make a major different to your overall appearance. When combined, these procedures are known as a mommy makeover, which we'd like to cover briefly right now.
Why Mommy Makeovers Are a Great Option
Mommy makeovers are comprehensive body contouring and sculpting treatments that help restore the overall appearance of a woman's body after childbirth. It covers all parts of the body that may be affected by the weight fluctuations experienced as part of the natural pregnancy and childbirth process.
Best Candidates for Mommy Makeovers
The best candidates for mommy makeover surgery are women who are in good health but have issues with drooping or sagging skin as a result of childbirth. During your visit with our Halifax cosmetic surgeons, you'll find out if a mommy makeover is the right solution for you.
Let's look at a few of the most common surgeries performed as part of mommy makeovers right now.
Body Contouring and Mommy Makeover Treatment
The most common surgery associated with mommy makeover treatments is the tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). This will be performed in order to reduce sagging, drooping, and stretchmarks around the lower abdominal area. Since the thighs, buttocks, and upper arms can also be affected by the weight gain and weight loss of pregnancy, there are also body contouring / sculpting procedures for these areas of the body as well.
Breast Enhancement and Mommy Makeover Treatment
The breasts can often experience major changes in shape and firmness following childbirth, which is why breast enhancement surgery is often part of a mommy makeover. Both breast lift and reduction surgery have proven very effective in improving overall shape and contour of the breasts. Sometimes the use of New Brunswick breast augmentation can also be used to improve overall shape and appearance as well.
Facial Rejuvenation and Mommy Makeover Treatment
Weight gain not only affects the body. The face can also be altered by pregnancy, particularly the neckline and the jowls/lower cheek region. In order to address these matters, lower face lift surgery and neck lift may be performed, improving overall appearance in the process.
