Body Contouring : Mommy Makeover

Body Contour Restoration After Pregnancy

Pregnancy and childbirth are joyous occasions that often bring wonderful changes to a woman’s life.  Unfortunately, these happy changes can also be accompanied by some not so desirable changes to a woman’s body.   The breasts may no longer be perky.  They may feel deflated after breast feeding.  Your belly may not be flat, regardless of the amount of sit ups and exercise you do.   Skin can sag in the breasts and belly.  These changes don’t have to be permanent.  In a mommy makeover procedure, the breasts and abdomen are simultaneously restored to their pre-pregnancy state in one operation.  It is essentially a combination of a mastopexy (or breast lift) and an abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck).  If your breasts are also deflated, the mastopexy can be combined with a breast augmentation using an implant.  Good candidates for this procedure are women who have finished having children and have stopped breast feeding.
