What You Need to Know About a Mommy Makeover

During and after pregnancy, the breasts increase and decrease in size and sometimes sag. Women gain and lose weight, sometimes resulting in folds around the abdomen. And women who choose to give birth vaginally may also find they want to undo the changes that come with it.

A mommy makeover tackles all of these issues through body contouring and augmentation to help you regain your pre-pregnancy shape and the renewed confidence that comes with it.

When performed together, the components of a mommy makeover will help you address the issues that come with pregnancy that diet and exercise alone cannot undo.

You may likely choose breast surgery—breast enlargement, breast lift, breast reduction, or laser bra—to reverse the clock and undo the effects that come with your breasts increasing and decreasing in size. Some women only want to return their breasts to the way they looked before pregnancy, and some even choose to have larger breasts as one piece of their mommy makeover.

A tummy tuck and liposuction may also be used in tandem in your mommy makeover to target specific fatty areas and remove extra skin. While liposuction can be applied to specific areas like the sides and thighs, you can use that in conjunction with a tummy tuck to remove extra skin and fat from the abdomen area, or perhaps to minimize the appearance of stretch marks that may have formed during pregnancy.

Lastly, labia reduction can help undo the after effects of a vaginal birth. While this is often a sensitive subject for many patients, they find it comforting to know that help is available and the medical professionals at West County Plastic Surgeons understand the courage it takes to address the issue.
