Becoming a mother can be one of the most rewarding experiences of a woman’s life. Unfortunately, pregnancy and breast-feeding often result in unwanted changes to a woman’s body, such as drooping breasts, stretch marks, and a sagging tummy that no amount of exercise and dieting can fix. Loose muscles and stretched skin improve somewhat over time, but the body never completely returns to the way it was before pregnancy.
Previously, women were resigned to living with these unwanted changes in their bodies. Now, however, more and more women are seeking out Plastic Surgeons to rejuvenate their breasts and abdomens to the youthful firmness they enjoyed before having children. These procedures are collectively called “mommy makeovers” or post-maternity breast and body reshaping. Operations on each area may be performed by themselves or concurrently to minimize cost as well as recovery time. Single operations are usually done as an outpatient, but combined ones often require an overnight stay. Please see individual sections on Cosmetic Breast Surgery and Cosmetic Body Surgery for further details.
Whether you are considering a single breast or body procedure or a mommy makeover package, these and other plastic surgery procedures can help you restore and rejuvenate your body after having children.
