May 22, 2012 – You may have heard about a mommy makeover but aren’t quite sure what it is. It isn’t a game show where new moms get to go shopping and pick out a new clothes that aren’t from the maternity section. It’s about getting back to the physical shape you were in before pregnancy added a few pounds and stretch marks. Moms are beautiful inside and out, and a mommy makeover can help you to feel better about yourself.

A mommy makeover is a combination of several cosmetic surgery procedures. A breast lift can help restore a better breast profile if your breasts have started to sag due to breast feeding. You can also opt for breast augmentation if you’ve lost volume in your breasts after breast feeding.

The average weight gain during pregnancy is about 25 to 35 pounds and while many women can lose that extra weight after giving birth, sometimes the extra pounds around the waist, butt, hips and thighs refuses to go away. In those cases, liposuction is a body contouring method that is often used in a mommy makeover.

If your abdominal muscles have become weak from the strain of pregnancy and you have extra fatty tissue in that area, a tummy tuck can help tighten muscles, remove fat and eliminate excess skin.

Even though Mother’s Day is over, a mommy makeover may be something to consider if you feel like pregnancy left you with more than a bundle of joy. Who knows, with Father’s Day approaching maybe there should be a daddy do-over, too.
