Pregnancy and childbirth are transformative experiences in a woman’s life, marked by both joy and profound physical changes. At Schuster Plastic Surgery, we feel that these changes don’t need to prevent women from achieving their aesthetic goals. Our commitment to providing safe and high-quality mommy makeovers in Delray underscores our dedication to helping women regain their pre-pregnancy body.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a set of surgical procedures designed to reduce the effects of pregnancy and childbirth for women. The chosen surgical procedures will target specific areas of a woman’s body that experienced significant changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The surgical procedures will vary depending on the patient and their aesthetic goals.
Why Is It Called a Mommy Makeover?
It is referred to as a “mommy makeover” because it is performed for women after giving birth to their child. The “makeover” part refers to comprehensively improving a mother’s body aesthetics. The combination of multiple procedures targets post-pregnancy changes and restores pre-pregnancy appearance, resulting in a personalized transformation.
Common Procedures in a Mommy Makeover
There are several procedures that can be included in a mommy makeover:
- Breast enhancement – A woman’s breasts can change significantly after pregnancy and breastfeeding. The breasts can become saggy and change in volume. Breast enhancement procedures are used to help restore the shape, volume, and appearance of the breasts. Breast augmentation is used to restore the breasts’ volume and projection, while a breast lift is performed to reduce sagging and attain a more youthful appearance.
- Facial cosmetic procedures – The stress of pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a toll on a woman’s face. We provide a mini-facelift or eyelid lift, among other facial procedures, to help make the face look younger.
- Liposuction – Liposuction is used to remove stubborn excess fat from various areas of the body. This will help contour the body.
- Tummy tuck – The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that contours the abdominal area of the patient. It removes excess fat and skin while tightening the abdominal muscles. We offer our patients a tummy tuck in Boca Raton as a perfect solution for post-pregnancy belly bulges and stretch marks.
Impacts of Pregnancy and Childbirth
Pregnancy and childbirth can have both physical and emotional impacts on women, and the physical impacts can be especially prominent. Women gain significant weight. The abdominal muscles stretch and separate as the uterus expands while the child develops during pregnancy. The breasts enlarge before losing volume and firmness by the end of pregnancy. Stubborn fat deposits, excess skin, and other skin changes are also noticeable impacts of pregnancy.
Changes to the Body After a Mommy Makeover
Women choose mommy makeovers because they are an efficient and convenient way to regain their pre-pregnancy body. They eliminate the effects of pregnancy and childbirth, such as excess fat deposits, sagging skin, loose abdominal muscles, and breast volume loss.
Additional Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
Mommy makeovers are very customizable and can be personalized for each patient’s specific aesthetic goals. Additionally, by avoiding multiple recovery periods, they can save patients a great deal of time and money.
