Our bodies change as we experience the biological effects of aging. They morph through various life events. For women, this often includes pregnancy and nursing. It also includes monthly hormonal cycles and weight changes. A Mommy Makeover is a custom-made surgical procedure that can help a woman correct specific concerns related to these changes. Through the years, Mommy Makeover surgery has maintained its appeal to women of all ages, even those who have not delivered children. Here, we discuss what this combination of breast and body procedures has to offer that make it so popular.
Total Body Contouring
Mommy Makeover surgery is body contouring tailored to reshape your unique areas of concern. It is a procedure designed specifically to you. In most cases the areas addressed include the breasts and the abdomen. Sometimes changes in the contour of the arms and legs may be desired. The goal is to safely and beautifully address the areas of most concern to the individual woman. Where imbalance may have existed between the breasts and body for instance, a more harmonious physique may result. Contouring areas of the body invites the eye to take in the body as a whole again, not as a disjointed array of pieces that don’t seem to fit well together. Nuanced improvements in areas like the breasts, midsection, buttocks, hips, and thighs often result in tremendous improvements in self-confidence as well.
Combining Surgeries can Save Time
And as we know, “time is money”. The idea of a Mommy Makeover is that a few procedures are combined into one longer operation. Instead of doing a breast lift now and a tummy tuck later, both can be done at the same time. The length of the recovery period is the same whether a tummy tuck is done alone, or if it is combined with a breast lift. So rather than taking six weeks to recover now, and six weeks to recover later, combining the two procedures just requires one six week period to recover. Given the very active lifestyles of women we see, recovering once rather than twice has many advantages.
