Mother’s Day is just around the corner! What a special day to honor and celebrate. Becoming and being a mother is the most important job for any women. Pregnancy, child-birth and mother-hood are life-changing and fulfilling experiences that last a lifetime, and the benefits are infinite.
As any mom might agree, there is really only one down-side to having children, and that is some of the undesirable physical changes that occur to our bodies with pregnancies, and after having babies and nursing them.
According to Dr. Joseph Dr. Perlman, Medical Director of the Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre in Texas, “most women who gain a few pounds or inches around the waist, hips, thighs and buttocks, or lose volume and shape in the breasts would consider elective surgery to get their pre-baby figures back.”
Mommy Makeover or “mom job” are terms used to describe a combination of two or more cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures performed on moms to restore their shape and proportion after having one or more children. The most popular surgeries associated with a mommy makeover are:
- Breast augmentation or implants
- Breast lift
- Butt lift
- Fat transfers (autologous fat)
- Liposuction/laser liposuction
- Lower body lift
- Tummy tuck/abdominoplasty
- Vaginal rejuvenation
The physical impacts of having children are different for every woman, which is why there is such a wide variety of choices for mommy makeover surgery. Scheduling a consultation with a board-certified plastic or cosmetic surgeon can help you determine which options are best for you.
