You're done having children, you’ve lost as much weight as you can, but you now have saggy, scooped breasts and tummy skin with all sorts of stretch marks. Not to mention an unnatural looking belly button. So what can you do about it? A Mommy Makeover might be just what you need to get back to the body you desire.
A Mommy Makeover can consist of a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, and breast augmentation or any combination of the above. You decide what bothers you the most or what you want to achieve and a physician can put together a treatment plan to suit your needs. Considering a lot of changes? Not a problem, as the breasts and tummy can be fixed all in one surgery.
A tummy tuck will repair your split abdominal muscles, remove all the stretch marks below and just above your belly button and can even give your upper thighs a slimmer, lifted look. The breast lift will remove the excess skin and reposition your nipples so they project outward from your chest as opposed to down. If you want to regain fullness and firmness, you will need a breast implant at the same time as the breast lift.
Take home message: Do not despair! First, eat healthy and make time for at least 15 minutes of walking or exercise at least twice a week. Try to cut down on the carbs and portions and then consult a plastic surgeon of your choice who will really hear what you want.
Someone who is willing to listen to and understand your needs when determining a treatment. A surgeon whose number one priority is anything other than the patients hopes is not going to be able or willing to help you in the way you need!
Don’t be discouraged by your body. The best way to get started on the road to a healthy body and appearance is to stop your unhealthy eating habits now before you gain more weight and are even more frustrated with your appearance. That extra skin and lax belly can all be fixed safely.
