Mommy Makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures that can revive a woman’s youthful glow by reversing the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Due to pregnancy and aging, the skin on the belly can loosen, and pockets of fat may develop that never go away. These pockets of fat cannot be easily eliminated solely with diet and exercise. Slimming and toning the abdomen is usually almost impossible because women often experience a loosening of abdominal muscles. Thus, a tummy tuck or a liposuction, or a combination of both, is the perfect procedure to include in the Mommy Makeover. In this next installment on our Mommy Makeover series, we’ll talk about two of the most common procedures in the Mommy Makeover: the tummy tuck and liposuction.
What a Tummy Tuck Does
Many mommies are concerned with accumulated fat and loose skin, or what they call the pregnancy “pooch” after giving birth. It is not unusual to develop this kind of body, because the abdomen stretches during pregnancy. That’s why the tummy tuck has become almost a compulsory part of the Mommy Makeover plan. Tummy tuck surgery tones and tightens the abdominal wall, removes excess fat and skin, and evens out the remaining skin. In some cases, it can even diminish the visibility of stretch marks.
What Liposuction Does
Due to aging and the effects of motherhood, countless mothers develop a distressingly flabby figure. Fat in the belly, buttocks, legs and upper arms may begin to accumulate. Usually, diet and exercise do not suffice for removing these pockets of fat. Some moms think that the body they have may be an inevitable part of motherhood, but it’s not. Liposuction can enliven a woman’s inner and outer beauty by restoring their youthful figure. Liposuction doesn’t just remove excess fat in the abdominal area, but also the love handles, inner and outer thigh, buttocks, inner knee, mid-back, and upper arms—some of the most common problem areas for moms, which is exactly why it’s perfect for the mommy makeover.
A Combination of Both (Tummy tuck + Liposuction)
The most commonly combined procedures in the Mommy Makeover are the tummy tuck and liposuction. Once the fat in the problem areas is eliminated through liposuction, tummy tuck usually follows to flatten and smooth the abdominal area. This combination offers powerful, targeted rejuvenation that allows moms to have comprehensive rejuvenation.
