What is the Columbus, Ohio Mommy Makeover?

March 24, 2010

Tummy tuck, liposuction and breast lift (with or without breast augmentation) are all considered part of a mommy makeover.

The Mommy Makeover Address A Number Of Common Post-Childbirth Concerns

What is the Columbus Ohio Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy and breastfeeding lead to very predictable physical changes for many women: abdominal bulging, belly button distortion, stretch marks, love handles and deflated breasts. The mommy makeover treats each of these problem areas. The tummy tuck flattens the abdominal bulge and allows the “six-pack” to emerge. It also refines the belly button into a more attractive shape and position, and it eliminates all stretch marks that occur between the belly button and the pubic area.

Liposuction removes the love handles and provides a more feminine, curvy “hourglass” shape above the hips. The breast lift elevates sagging nipples and skin, and is often combined with breast augmentation using implants to create more fullness and cleavage.

Surgical Intervention Can Help Speed Up The Process 

You’ve put so much into your children that it’s often difficult to find time for yourself. Good nutrition and regular exercise are important, but they usually don’t fully correct the bulging, sagging and stretching — these corrections require plastic surgery. Mommy Makeover procedures are safe and very effective for restoring pre-pregnancy contours; they can be done separately, or at the same time in one operation. You should wait at least six months between your last pregnancy or breastfeeding and your surgery date, and if you become pregnant again after surgery, you might need a touch-up.
