With so many images of celebrities who have just had babies flooding social media and popular magazines, women can find it difficult not to compare themselves to the seemingly perfect bodies of toned, tanned women. It may seem as if these women have absolutely no trouble returning to their pre-pregnancy shapes, but this is simply not the case for most of them. They have to put in hard work just as every woman does following pregnancy. However, no matter how much a woman diets and exercises, she may find it impossible to return her entire body to normal.
Cosmetic Procedures Involved in Mommy Makeovers
Mommy makeovers include several common procedures to improve many parts of the body, including breast lifts, tummy tucks, liposuctions and sometimes even breast augmentations. A mommy makeover is not used as a weight loss tool. Rather, it is used to improve skin tone, to improve breast shape and to remove loose, unwanted tissue.
In addition, women are encouraged to be at their goal weights for at least six months before having the makeover. Weight loss following a makeover can lead to further loose skin. In addition, makeovers should be performed at least six months after delivery and at least six months following the end of breastfeeding because breastfeeding can significantly change the shape and size of the breasts. One other consideration is that smokers need to quit smoking at least three months before surgery because smoking significantly affects the healing process. Dr. Tavoussi can make specific recommendations for women seeking mommy makeovers at a consultation at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique.
