Almost any woman in Chicago who is in good overall health and has finished childbearing and breastfeeding can benefit from a mommy makeover. Even one pregnancy can stretch your abdomen and breasts so they don’t bounce back to their pre-pregnancy tightness. Several pregnancies will surely have an effect on your appearance. A mommy makeover is a combination of multiple cosmetic procedures that are done during one surgery to help give you back your pre-pregnancy figure.
Who is a Good Candidate?
After delivery, you have to wait a set amount of time to allow the body to heal completely before considering a mommy makeover. This also means you have stopped breastfeeding for enough time that our specialist can get an idea of the true size, shape and position of your breasts. No mommy makeover can withstand a pregnancy, so if you would like to have another child or two, it’s best to wait until after that. If you do get pregnant after a mommy makeover, it may require some touch-up surgery to regain your pre-pregnancy body.
What Procedures are Included?
An abdominoplasty, also called a tummy tuck, to tighten your abdomen is one of the most popular procedures in a mommy makeover. If you have dieted and exercised to reduce and tighten your tummy with little results, a tummy tuck may be the answer. It is often combined with liposuction to remove small fat deposits around your waist and hips that simply don’t budge with diet and exercise.
Breast enhancement that makes your breasts a better size, shape and position is another popular procedure. The two main types of breast enhancement are a breast lift and breast implants. Hormones have a great impact on your breasts when you are pregnant and breastfeeding, but when the hormones recede, your breasts may lose volume and elasticity. A breast lift is a long-lasting solution if your breasts are sagging and have lost volume. Breast implants may be the best solution if you want your breasts to not only be lifted but be slightly bigger.
