Mommy Makeover Procedures By on May 18, 2012

Having a child will change your life in many ways. You find that you have to reassess your priorities to make sure your child has that best that you can provide. You also have to think about their future's in addition to your own. And of course, your body will undergo a number of changes as a result of giving birth to a child. That's why many women visit our Edina plastic surgery in order to restore and rejuvenate their appearance after having a baby. This is known as a mommy makeover.

About Mommy Makeover Treatments

A mommy makeover is essentially a combination of different body contouring and sculpting surgeries. Performed in concert, these surgeries will be able to restore and enhance a woman's appearance, making her figure appear the way it was before having the child. There are numerous procedures often performed as part of a mommy makeover. Let's take a look at a few right now.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Since the abdominal area does get stretched a good amount during pregnancy, the skin around the belly will often experience contouring issues. That's why an Edina tummy tuck is common in mommy makeover procedures. A tummy tuck will remove excess skin from the lower abdominal area, leaving your stomach looking trim, toned, and free from stretchmarks.

Buttock Lift Surgery

The lower body can go through many changes as a result of pregnancy as well. The buttock lift will be able to address contouring issues with the lower body, whether it's the lower portion of the buttocks or the upper portion of the buttocks. Your backside will become toned and better proportioned again, leaving you looking great.

Breast Lift and Enhancement

The breasts will go through a number of changes after childbirth. This can be due to weight gain and weight loss, hormonal changes, and nursing. It's for that reason that mommy makeovers often incorporate breast lift and enhancement surgery in addition to other body sculpting options. These will all help you look better and more refreshed and rejuvenated.

Facial Rejuvenation Options

The face will often experience sagging and drooping following major weight loss, so it's important that we look into facial plastic surgery and rejuvenation whenever we perform a mommy makeover. We can help revise the neckline, reduce the appearance of jowls, and leave you looking younger and more refreshed.

Addressing the Extremities Through Body Contouring

The torso and trunk area aren't the only parts of the body affected by weight gain and weight loss. The extremities can be changed a great deal as well. That's why it's important to undergo arm lift surgery and thigh lift surgery, both of which can make you look toned, trim, and incredible.
