Mommy Makeover Results
Many women who embarked upon working careers, before becoming mothers, are often faced with going back to work after childbirth. For some, the need to regain their self confidence and appearance is important to them. Childbirth can cause a wide range of changes to a woman’s body, which include a flabby tummy, visible stretch marks and increased weight gain. A woman’s breasts can also be permanently changed as a result of childbirth, in some cases losing their perkiness and firmness altogether.
There are many surgical procedures that are available to turn back the clock and help a woman regain her pre-childbirth appearance. This is known as a “Mommy Makover,” which include the following procedures:
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that removes the excess skin and fat caused by muscle stretching and skin laxity as a result of childbirth. A surgeon will carefully make an incision, usually below the bikini line, and cut away the excessive skin and fat. They may also need to tighten up the abdomino-muscles with sutures as well as recreate the belly button since it is often removed in the procedure. Recovery times can vary per person, however, expect at least a week or two down time with up to six weeks recover before feeling completely back to normal. Women who are in a better physical condition usually have a shorter recovery time than those that don’t. Click to learn more about a tummy tuck abdominoplasty.
