We left off with the mommy makeover after discussing the problem that many mothers face with their post-pregnancy breasts
. Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about the obvious part that many women struggle with after giving birth. This session on the mommy makeover is all about taking back your pre-baby tummy.
Nobody expects a new mother to easily regain her body after giving birth. With all the changes that the body undergoes during pregnancy, it takes a lot of time and hard work to get the body back to where it was before.
Unlike the celebrities, the rest of the world’s mothers don’t have the hours in the day (not to mention the full-time nannies) to devote to an intense workout regimen or diet. And even when dieting and exercising aren’t a hassle, it may not be enough. That is why the mommy makeover
often includes the following two body contouring procedures.
A TUMMY TUCK TO SMOOTH AWAY THE EXCESS SKIN
When a piece of clothing gets stretched out, it never really truly regains its old shape. The same is often true of the belly after pregnancy. When the skin is stretched out over a long period of time – nine months to be exact – it frequently lacks the elasticity to fully return to its old contours. This can leave behind areas of excess flaps of skin or tissue along the abdomen. No celebrity trainer or dietician can get rid of this excess skin. The tummy tuck
procedure removes this hanging skin to achieve a smooth contour of the body.
However, if the stretched-out skin is not the only problem that your post-baby belly is facing, there is another procedure you may consider.
LIPOSUCTION TO REMOVE STUBBORN FAT
It is important that mothers gain some weight during pregnancy in order to sustain both her health and the baby’s during pregnancy. Once the baby is born, losing the remaining stubborn fat is not an easy thing to do. For mothers that want a head-start on losing these deposits of fat, liposuction
will get the job done.
Liposuction is typically performed along with a tummy tuck during a mommy makeover. The combination of the two procedures
has even been shown to provide patients with added benefits, including a shorter recovery time and continued weight loss after
