The term mommy makeover has been frequently mentioned in the news and media, causing many women to flock to plastic surgeons seeking this procedure. While this term is more of a marketing gimmick than a technical term, the fact still remains that many women experience physical changes following a pregnancy. Breasts tend to sag and the stomach loses elasticity, both of which detract from the overall youthful appearance of a woman's body, even if she is quite young. A mommy makeover serves to correct any cosmetic issues that arise as the direct result of a pregnancy.
A mommy makeover does not consist of any specific set of procedures. Rather, it is any necessary combination of procedures to handle any shortcoming observed following pregnancy. Generally, stretched abdominal skin and weak abdominal muscles plague women who have experienced pregnancy. They may also experience sagging breasts with decreased volume as well as excess fat in certain areas.
Because of this, a popular combination of procedures is a tummy tuck, liposuction of the abdomen and flanks, and a breast augmentation. In most cases, women who have developed breast sagging would also benefit from a breast lift in addition to breast enlargement.
Another common set of procedures is facial plastic surgery and body contouring. Mothers in this category usually undergo a procedure such as rhinoplasty combined with breast augmentation and a tummy tuck. While the rhinoplasty may not be designed to correct a pregnancy-related issue, it is one more step taken to retain the deserved youth of women who have endured the miracle of childbirth.
