It’s Time for Mom!
While pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are miraculous, there’s a cost – dramatic changes to your body. These can include stretch marks, low breasts, unwanted fat, and separated abdominal muscles. As hard as you might try to get your body back into pre-pregnancy shape with diet and exercise, often that is not enough, especially after multiple pregnancies.
There are many ways to restore your figure to the way you looked before starting a family. Body-sculpting procedures offer an excellent option to help you get your youthful silhouette back. Here are five popular cosmetic procedures mothers choose to reshape their bodies.
1. Breast Lift
Over time, your breast skin will become less elastic because of aging and the forces of gravity. The medical term for sagging breasts is ptosis. Many causes contribute to this cosmetic concern, including lifestyle, genetics, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and skin laxity. Some women have sought a solution to this issue for years.
A breast lift is a surgical correction that helps resolve drooping breasts by excising excess skin, reshaping breast tissues, and repositioning breast location higher on the chest wall. The procedure can also address the enlarged nipple/areola complex for aesthetic enhancement. The benefits offer a better-proportioned, youthful breast appearance.
To add volume to your breasts, you can consider breast augmentation with a lift.
2. Breast Reduction
Reduction mammoplasty, commonly referred to as breast reduction, is a surgical procedure that eliminates excess breast tissue and skin for a more pleasing and comfortable contour. It helps women with oversized breasts who deal with discomfort, a limited range of physical activity, persistent skin irritation, and breasts that are disproportional to their body type.
Women with large, heavy breasts have trouble finding stylish, well-fitting clothes. They can also experience chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain. If you experience these issues daily, you may avoid exercise, contributing to weight gain and an unhealthy lifestyle. In addition,
any women feel embarrassed about their breasts and overall figure because of their disproportionate breast size.
3. Tummy Tuck
The technical term for a tummy tuck is abdominoplasty. It is a transformative procedure that delivers a tighter abdomen by eliminating excess skin and fat. Another benefit of this operation is that it reinforces the abdominal wall, which can become weakened by the strain of pregnancy, causing loose tissue to droop and sag.
The surgery is safe and effective when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon experienced in abdominoplasty. Board-certified Encino plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Bresnick has performed over 1,500 successful tummy tuck procedures in his two and a half decades of performing plastic surgery.
One of the most popular plastic surgeries, liposuction, eliminates unwanted fat that causes unsightly bulges in various areas. The procedure is safe, convenient, and produces dramatic improvements with minimal recovery and minimal risk of scarring. Typical areas women choose for this surgery are the neck, knees, arms, lower back, flanks, abdomen, hips, and thighs.
5. Mommy Makeover
If you struggle with several areas of concern on your body, a mommy makeover can help. This customized approach involves combining multiple surgeries to help you look your best after you’re no longer planning to have children.
