Mommy makeovers have surged in popularity over the past few years, and for good reason. This procedure is specifically designed to help counteract the effects of pregnancy by restoring areas of a woman’s body that change the most, such as the breasts and abdomen. Mommy makeovers at St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery most often consist of breast enhancement, a tummy tuck and/or liposuction for St. Louis patients.
- Breast Enhancement
A breast enhancement procedure usually includes a breast augmentation or breast lift, but it can also involve a breast reduction. Typically, breast augmentation is the most popular option. That’s because the breasts take on a flat or deflated appearance after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast implants can help restore volume that was lost or enhance breasts that were small before pregnancy.
- Tummy Tuck
During pregnancy, the skin and muscles stretch so severely that the body can’t “bounce back” once the baby is born. Even women who exercise diligently are still left with folds of skin they can’t get rid of. A tummy tuck is excellent for removing this excess skin around the waistline and tightening the abdominal muscles.
Losing baby weight is tough, and even after diet and exercise, it’s normal to have a few bumps and bulges left behind. Liposuction can permanently remove these areas of stubborn fat and sculpt a sleeker, more defined body contour.
