Childbirth is a beautiful process that has changed the lives of millions of women. The feeling of holding and raising your child is second to none. But apart from the overwhelming joy you experience with motherhood, there are some side effects that women often find unpleasant. One of these side effects is how your body changes through pregnancy and childbirth.
After a woman has delivered a child, her body undergoes several changes. She has gained some extra weight to make sure the baby has all the nourishment required. Sometimes, it is easy to get rid of these extra pounds through healthy diets and constant exercising; for many women, it is quite difficult. Other changes include saggy abdominal skin, stretch marks, and a change in the appearance of your breasts. Thankfully, mommies who want to go back to their pre-pregnancy bodies can consider the Mommy Makeover.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
This is a term used to describe a set of procedures that rejuvenate a woman’s body. The goal of this procedure is to address several physical changes that occur during and after pregnancy. Mommy Makeovers include cosmetic surgeries to correct issues like excess fat, sagging excess tissue in the abdomen, and deflation and sagging of the breasts.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Basically, any woman who has given birth and decided that she does not want to give birth to any additional children may be a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover. You can choose from a variety of procedures to create your makeover package in order to address your specific problems. If you choose to undergo a Mommy Makeover, you must be in good health.
Including Breast Lifts in Mommy Makeovers
As mentioned earlier, your body undergoes numerous changes after childbirth. Almost everything on your body changes. Many women to prefer to have their old bodies back. This is why the Mommy Makeover has become such a popular option.
One of the most common procedures women request for in their Mommy Makeovers is a breast lift. During pregnancy, a woman’s breasts become enlarged to prepare for lactation once the baby is born. This causes the skin to grow. After lactation, the breasts may lose volume again, but the breast skin often does not shrink down with them. Instead, the excess skin hangs, causing the breasts to sag. Women who have breastfed their children have noticed several obvious changes to their breasts, such as sagging, enlargement, unevenness, and even changes in their areola shape and size.
These changes are completely natural and are meant to take place during pregnancy and after childbirth, but they can leave women feeling self-conscious and insecure about their bodies. This is why many women decide on a breast lift as part of their Mommy Makeover package. They want their breasts to be returned to their original shape and youthful perkiness. The breast lift helps remove excess skin, reduce sagging, and recreate a youthful shape for your breasts. This procedure helps women regain their original breasts with improved shape and symmetry. Their areolae may also be reshaped and repositioned.
