After pregnancy, many women work to get back their figure. However, diet and exercise can’t always fix the changes to your body. As such, many women are turning to mommy makeovers to give them back their pre-pregnancy curves. But can a mommy makeover help treat loose skin after pregnancy?
That all depends on the procedures you decide to include in your mommy makeover.
A Tummy Tuck Addresses Loose Abdominal Skin
One of the most common procedures included in a mommy makeover is the tummy tuck. This procedure targets the abdominal changes that occur during pregnancy or even after excessive weight loss. While not a weight loss procedure, a tummy tuck removes the excess fat and skin in the tummy area while also helping to restore weakened abdominal muscles. If, after your pregnancy, you experience loose skin in your abdominal area, a tummy tuck can remove this excess skin and give you a much firmer, tighter tummy.
Adding a tummy tuck and a breast lift to your mommy makeover will allow you to address that loose skin after pregnancy.
A Breast Lift Keeps the Breasts Firm and Reduces Sagging
When you were pregnant, chances are you experienced growth in your breasts. This may have continued through breastfeeding as your breasts filled with milk. However, after pregnancy and breastfeeding, your breasts may shrink, often leading to breast sagging and loose skin. If you are experiencing loose skin and sagging breasts, you may be a perfect candidate for a breast lift. A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, removes excess skin on the breasts and tightens the surrounding breast tissue. This helps to reshape the breasts, removing loose skin and sag, making it an excellent part of a mommy makeover.
