Anti-aging doesn’t mean letting go of the benefits of maturity and a fruitful life. Becoming a mother changes the shape of a woman’s body after her baby is born, in three ways that may prompt her to want a mommy makeover in Beverly Hills: The hormonal changes that occur immediately upon pregnancy signal some parts mother’s body to shift and the breasts to engorge in preparation for breastfeeding. Secondly, there will be generalized weight gain in order to support fetal development. Finally, there is bound to be some shifting and stretching of the skin as all these transformations take place. Additionally, the skin of the face, legs and other areas can develop certain discolorations.
How the Procedure Works
A mommy makeover is a composite of procedures including post-maternity breast and body contouring,meant to treat a number of concerns.
The abdomen is perhaps the most obvious location where a change occurs during pregnancy. Mothers of big babies or multiples are especially subject to weight gain and shifts in abdominal shape. Weight can be lost, but the shape of the abdomen can’t always be returned to its previous condition without surgery. Deep seated fat and excess tissue can be removed, muscles tightened, and extra skin trimmed away during a tummy tuck.
More and more new mothers are seeking different kinds of body contouring for restoring their bodies’ beauty after baby is born, some of which include hip and buttock sculpting, including the use of fat transfer.
The breasts of a new mother sometimes droop or sag, and can lose volume after the initial swelling brought on by breastfeeding. You might be left with prematurely aged-looking breasts, and a mommy makeover frequently employs both augmentations and lift procedures to address. We can not only rejuvenate breasts, but return them to a previous cup size, or a new cup size entirely.
The ups and downs of new motherhood are likely to cause wrinkles from not only smiling and laughter, but worry and stress. Folds and lines in the facial skin can be helped, however, with Botox®, or other fillers, including Juverderm and Restylane.
Other skin concerns include newly formed superficial veins in your legs and feet which can be treated with specialized injections to make them less prominent. Certain kinds of brown patches of discoloration that are common can be eliminated very effectively with Intense Pulsed Light or IPL.
In many cases only one operation is necessary. Since mommy makeovers are a combination of procedures, the recovery period can be more difficult than for a simpler procedure.
