After going through one or more pregnancies, many women struggle with a wide variety of unwanted cosmetic issues. Exercising multiple times a week and sticking to a strict diet will improve your overall health, but those lifestyle habits might not help you deal with loose abdominal skin, sagging breasts, and other problems. If you want to get rid of those issues as quickly as possible, then you might want to consider a mommy makeover. This combination procedure allows our team to address multiple blemishes and imperfections during a single surgery. Here is a closer look at just a few of the reasons why so many women in the Rio Grande Valley area are now undergoing mommy makeovers.
Your Post-Pregnancy Body
Women can take quite a few steps to preserve their appearance during a pregnancy, but that biological process takes a toll on every mother’s body. Burning more calories than you consume will melt away some of the baby weight, but other cosmetic problems might be completely out of your control. After giving birth or nursing, the tissue in your breasts is going to change. That could lead to uneven breasts, sagging breasts, or uneven nipple placement. Many mothers also struggle with loose skin in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, and thighs.
All of those issues can be addressed with various cosmetic procedures, but undergoing multiple operations isn’t ideal. Immediately following each of those procedures, you might need to spend weeks recovering. The primary purpose of a mommy makeover is to address a wide variety of blemishes and imperfections at once.
Many patients undergo mommy makeovers in order to deal with unwanted soft tissue in the midsection. After you give birth, all of the soft tissue throughout your abdomen and flanks might begin to sag. The best way to take care of that loose tissue could be a tummy tuck and/or liposuction. For sagging or uneven breasts, we usually suggest a breast lift and/or augmentation. The procedure is entirely customized based on your wants and needs.
