As cosmetic procedures of all types become more and more popular, new moters have also begun choosing to have more skin treatments and mommy makeover surgeries.
Ranging from the full mommy makeover surgery to non-invasive treatments such as Botox or dermal fillers, these cosmetic procedures are helping to treat the effects of childbirth on a woman’s body. The three main areas of concern that these procedures focus on are the breasts, the stomach, and the skin.
When the glow of childbirth lessens after a few months, many new mothers begin feeling that they are being unfairly portrayed by the changes in their body. Cosmetic treatments, whether small or large in scope, may help them to feel that they are taking back control of their bodies.
Many new mothers chose to have skin treatments to restore the glow they remember from pregnancy. These skin treatments range from chemical peels and microdermabrasion to laser treatments. They may also involve medical-grade skin care products for the best possible long-term results.
The most common surgical procedure for women who have recently been through childbirth is the mommy makeover, which includes a tummy tuck and breast surgery. The tummy tuck portion of the procedure tightens and reshapes the muscles that become stretched and damaged during childbirth. It can also remove excess tissue and fat deposits in the process, giving a smoother, more youthful stomach contour.
The breast surgery portion of the mommy makeover provides dramatic changes in the breast appearance, addressing one of the main complaints of women after having children. Drooping breasts, loss of volume, and changes in symmetry are common concerns of mothers, particularly with those who have had multiple children. With a breast lift or breast augmentation, the breasts may be returned to a younger appearance.
