When is it the Right Time for a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeovers are becoming very common. It is something requested most often by women to help recover from their pregnancy, and allow them to reclaim their lost figure.

Three Common Procedures

There are usually three common procedures that are undergone which comprise the mommy makeover. The most common procedure is a tummy tuck. That is when a lot of excess skin and fat are removed from the stomach, the stomach muscles are tightened, and the belly button is realigned. Because abdominal muscles sometimes come apart during pregnancy, this is a required procedure for some others. Sometimes, the injuries will heal up on their own as the body returns to normal, but there is no guarantee.

Pairing Procedures

No amount of exercise will bring your figure back to normal if the muscles have been separated though. The only fix is surgery. Lucky for mommies who are wondering this doesn’t involve a very dangerous surgery. Mommy makeovers are quite common. Another common part of the makeover is a procedure women often request, liposuction. Liposuction is a procedure that uses a special tool to remove fat from the subdermal layers. Only the top layers of fat are removed during this procedure, so recovery time is usually fairly short. Undergoing liposuction at the same time as a tummy tuck is something most women choose to do.

Breast Augmentation

The third main procedure associated with a mommy makeover in Arlington Heights is breast augmentation. The fullness that a breast can get during pregnancy will sometimes lead to a slight deflating after the pregnancy is over. Some mothers look to go back to a fuller look, while others look to go up an entire cup size. Whether you want to restore your previous look, or move onto augmented breasts with an increase in cup size is up to you. Either option is a very common choice for mothers during mommy makeovers.
