Parenting is a tough job and carrying a baby can undoubtedly take a toll on your physique. Pregnancy causes significant changes in a body and can permanently alter the breasts and stomach. Many moms turn to a mommy makeover to regain lost confidence after giving birth.
At Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery, Drs. Ali and Tamir Mosharrafa receive a wide array of questions as to the specifics of a mommy makeover procedure. A mommy makeover isn’t a single plastic surgery but rather a combination of surgeries that can include any of the following: breast lift and augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck, or a labiaplasty. Depending on your eligibility for specific procedures, your surgery will likely be a combination of some of the following:
Breasts are often left drooping or less full after pregnancy and breastfeeding. It’s common to go up a few cup sizes while breastfeeding, then drop back down after, causing the skin to stretch. For this reason, many choose a breast lift or augmentation to regain the youthful-looking breasts they once had. A breast lift will make breasts look perkier while inserting implants with augmentation can restore fullness. Pregnancy can also leave your breasts at a larger size before you were childbearing, making a breast reduction an available option if you’re looking to return to smaller breast size.
Stubborn fat may remain in the stomach after gaining weight while pregnant that cannot always be lost through diet and exercise alone. For this reason, many choose liposuction to permanently remove these fat cells.
A tummy tuck is usually performed with liposuction but includes benefits beyond removing fat cells. Tummy tucks also remove loose skin that can result from stretching during pregnancy and tightens abdominal muscles as well.
During childbirth, the delicate skin of the labia minora can be damaged, causing it to protrude. This causes not just self-consciousness, but often discomfort as well. A labiaplasty can correct this problem. During a labiaplasty, a surgeon carefully removes excess skin to restore the labia.
If you’re interested in the rejuvenating possibilities of a mommy makeover procedure, be sure to ask questions and conduct your own research. It’s very important to hear the opinion of a board-certified plastic surgeon as well. At Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery, both Drs. Ali and Tamir Mosharrafa are both board-certified and have helped hundreds with successful mommy makeover procedures. They’ve been awarded as 2 of Phoenix’s Top Doctors for over 20 years!
