What Does a Mommy Makeover Correct?

A mommy makeover can make moms look like their pre-pregnant days again. They can even go back to wearing bikinis again. How? There are many different ways.

Mommy Makeovers Effects on the Stomach

A flater belly is one-way mothers can benefit from a mommy makeover surgery in North Bethesda. The number one giveaway that one is a mom already is a pouch in her belly area, sometimes called a “pregnancy pouch”. Several factors affect the woman’s ability to have a flat tummy again after giving birth. These are:

  • Age
  • Weight gain during pregnancy
  • Genes
  • How active the woman is
  • Number of children or deliveries
  • If breastfeeding or not

There are two ways a mommy makeover in Bethesda can make the stomach flat again. They are:

  • Tummy tuck – also known as abdominoplasty. This procedure involves removal of excess fats and skin plus restoration of weakened or separated muscles of the abdomen. Together with diet and exercise, one can have a well-toned, flat abdomen again, even after several deliveries.
  • Liposuction – A cosmetic surgery that breaks up and siphons or “sucks” the fat off the abdomen and other body parts.

Mommy Makeovers Effects on the Breasts

Firmer breasts is another way a mommy makeover in Bethesda can help women reach their pre-pregnant body. Pregnancy and childbirth can lead to sagging breasts. A mommy makeover can fix this problem. It offers breast enhancement procedures that can do the following things to counteract sagging caused from age, breast feeding and pregnancy:

  • Increase the size.
  • Restore breast shape after pregnancy or breastfeeding.
  • Correct asymmetry of the breasts.

Mommy Makeover Effects on Skin

Smoother tighter looking skin can also be corrected with a mommy makeover procedure. Stretch marks occur due to the distention of the abdominal skin during pregnancy. They would forever remind a woman that she has a post pregnant body. By getting a mommy makeover in Bethesda, Dr. Kay can treat the loose skin or stretch marks to bring back your pre-pregnant body once again. Together with tummy tuck, the surgeon can remove the lax tissues of skin with stretch marks. However, complete removal of stretch marks would not be feasible especially if the areas covered are too wide. Some nonsurgical med spa treatments can help make stretch marks become less noticeable.
