If you've ever given birth to a child, you know that there is simply no greater joy than being a parent. However, you may not be overjoyed about the state of your figure after delivering your bundle of joy! A Mommy Makeover can address the physical toll pregnancy takes, restoring your pre-baby body and giving you back your confidence so that you can be the best mother possible to your children.
It appears that more and more women may be turning to surgical procedures to look and feel better after baby, with the number of breast lift and tummy tuck operations growing an astounding 70 percent and 79 percent respectively between 2000 and 2013, according to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
A Mommy Makeover typically combines a tummy tuck, liposuction and/or breast lift to address the physical toll that pregnancy can take on even the youngest and healthiest of bodies. Here is a breakdown of these three popular Mommy Makeover procedures:
- Breast lift: Pregnancy and breast-feeding can take a serious toll on your bust line, leaving you with a frumpy, matronly shape. A breast lift restores your décolletage and gives you back your youthful silhouette. We can also perform an augmentation or reduction.
- Liposuction: Did your body collect deposits of fat during pregnancy that you have been unable to target through diet and exercise alone? If so, you may be an excellent candidate for liposuction, which can safely and easily remove those stubborn fatty areas.
- Tummy tuck: Unfortunately, no matter how much you diet and work out after your pregnancy, you may not be able to achieve the tight tummy of your youth. That's because your skin stretched out to accommodate your baby, and now that you aren't pregnant you're left with excess tissue. A tummy tuck simply removes this extra skin to give you back your bikini body!
Combining two or more operations into one Mommy Makeover allows busy new mothers to minimize the total time spent in recovery — crucial if you're taking care of a baby or toddler! When you consult with Christopher Craft, M.D., one of the finest and most reputable plastic surgeons in Miami, he can help you identify a personalized plan that fits your individual aesthetic goals and needs.
As important as your children are and as much as you love them, it's also important to set aside some time and energy to care for yourself. After all, you can't be a good parent or set a good example for your children if you have healthy self-esteem. It's time to reclaim your body and your sense of self!
