Do You Want Your “Before Baby” Body back? Think Mommy Makeover
There is a well known series of cosmetic surgeries, that when grouped together is known as a “mommy makeover”. The term may or may not be familiar to Houston women, but if you have had children and you have sacrificed your figure in doing so, then you will likely be more than a little bit interested in this technique. If nursing has left your breasts sagging or without their former fullness, or if you have a saggy tummy, or extra weight around your middle or on your thighs and hips, you are a good candidate for the procedure. Cosmetic surgeons use some or all of the following techniques to sculpt and contour your body back into your “before baby” body.
Breast lifts and/or implants for the breasts
Quite a few elements have an effect on breast enhancement options. The loss in volume, level of sagging, as well as the degree of tissue loss has an impact. In certain cases, breast implants work extremely well without an added breast lift. A breast lift without implants is often more suitable in cases where droopiness is the principal issue. If the nipple is low, tightening the skin above and below the breast lifts it up. You should keep in mind that even though this technique significantly enhances the physical appearance of the breasts, it does nothing at all to resolve the decrease in volume. For a lot of moms, a breast lift with implants is the ideal solution because it presents a remedy for the decrease of fullness, as well as sagging. The nipple is lifted and repositioned, the surplus skin is taken away, and the lost volume is restored by the implant.
A tummy tuck for the abdomen
This surgery offers two options, a complete tummy tuck, or a mini-tummy tuck. The complete tummy tuck corrects the separated and weakened stomach muscles, as well as tightens the area of skin from underneath the breasts to the lower tummy. A mini-tummy tuck targets the region between the belly button and pubic bone. It does away with that unattractive pooch that a large number of women find difficult to lose. Despite the fact that each method results in scars, they can be covered with a swimsuit.
Liposuction for fat removal
Liposuction reduces the specific "hard to lose" fat accumulation that often develops over the course of a pregnancy. Liposuction is effective on the stomach, hips, thighs, and knees.
