We all know that having a baby can cause some big changes to a woman’s body. It’s not just the effect of pregnancy and the birth itself but also the effects of nursing. Being a mother is full of exciting and positive milestones and women should not be deterred by concerns about the effect on their body.
Advances in plastic surgery have made it an increasingly viable option for women looking to alter specific features they are unhappy with. The mommy makeover is a combination of minor cosmetic surgery procedures and other techniques which are used to return a woman’s appearance to how it was prior to giving birth. These are usually outpatient procedures and women need not spend more than a few hours in the hospital for each session.
The most common procedures given are the breast lift and the tummy tuck. The breast lift involves a small incision near the breast area and then removes excessive skin and reshapes the tissue. Some women opt to have implants put in as part of the procedure. A tummy tuck, on the other hand, involves physical structures being placed in an incision made across the lower abdomen. The surgeon then re-drapes the remaining skin and pulls it tight before closing the incision.
