Mommy Makeovers and rejuvenation of the post-pregnancy body
What happens to a woman’s body in the peri-pregnancy period ? : A woman’s weight and hormonal balance fluctuate greatly during pregnancy, affecting the skin and underlying soft-tissues in a variety of ways, leading to very common side-effects including excessive abdominal skin associated with a loss of abdominal muscle tone; sagging of the breasts and/or loss of breast volume; accumulation of fat in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, and thighs; the development of stretch marks in the breasts, abdomen, and other areas.
So what is a Mommy Makeover ?: The Mommy Makeover is a specific combination of procedures recommended and customized for each patient and her specific needs and goals.
The most common procedures combined in a Mommy Makeover by Doctor Vallecillos are: Breast augmentation with or without a breast lift, tummy tuck, brazilian butt lift, and liposuction in various areas.
So, for example, a tummy tuck serves to tighten the underlying muscles of the abdomen while removing excessive skin, thus improving the abdominal contour, and a combination of a breast augmentation and breast lift give fantastic results that make the breasts rounder and firmer, giving them a more youthful appearance. Adding areas of liposuction around the love handles and thighs are a nice option combined with the other procedures to contour and slim the figure.
Women that are considering any of these procedures should make sure that they are not planning any future pregnancies. Doing so will help sustain the results.
The ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover is a woman who wishes to correct any post-pregnancy issues including sagging breasts, a lax abdomen, or trouble areas of fatty accumulation.
Having trouble getting back to the bod you once had- wanting to look as good as you once did- needing a kick-start in changing your lifestyle- all reasons to consider planning your Mommy Makeover.
