In the plastic surgery field, mommy makeovers have become increasingly popular in recent years. Designed to address common issues and body changes experienced after pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women consider these specialized combinations of plastic surgery techniques to help improve curves and contour.
Since breastfeeding and pregnancy usually take the biggest toll on the breast and abdomen, these areas are the ones that are most commonly addressed. Breast enhancement can take the form of breast augmentation, breast lift (mastopexy), or both. The tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is often combined with liposuction of the hips and other areas. Each surgery is tailored to the individual, depending on the areas of most concern.
Aside from aesthetic and physical changes, a mommy makeover offers a wealth of other benefits for clients. From positively impacting sex drive to improving mental health, cosmetic reconstruction can help boost confidence and self-esteem and even correct medical conditions like diastasis recti.1
