Mothers often choose cosmetic surgery after they’ve had children. Some make the decision shortly after giving birth. No matter what your personal situation, the appeal of cosmetic surgery stems from the desire to feel better about your body. Looking younger is probably another consideration for moms like you. The most requested plastic surgery procedures mothers inquire about include:
Women who breastfed babies often are fine with the size of their breasts. Most moms agree, though, that when breast-feeding is discontinued, their breasts lose much of the volume they had prior to nursing a baby. The purpose of the breast lift is to restore the look and perk of breasts without any real change in breast size.
There are those mothers who find that, in addition to sagging, their breasts look and feel smaller after having children. Breast augmentation involves the use of implants, giving mom natural looking breasts that are more in keeping with their pre-pregnancy breast size.
The technical term for tummy tuck is abdominoplasty. It is performed to tighten the muscles in the abdominal area to restore a smooth appearance to the post-pregnancy belly. Excess skin that cannot be gotten rid of with exercise is removed, as well. Tummy tucks are very popular among moms who have completed their family and want to make themselves look and feel better about their bodies.
Liposuction involves the removal of fat beneath the skin. The primary places on a woman’s body that benefit from liposuction are the thighs, stomach and hips. When liposuction is sought for the stomach, it will often be performed at the same time as a tummy tuck procedure.
There is always some degree of risk involved with any cosmetic surgery but modern surgical techniques have made the experience safer and less painful than ever before. Advances in care have led to better outcomes and a much faster recovery for your surgical procedures. If you opt to take advantage of cosmetic surgery, there has never been a better time to do so!
