A mommy makeover is a common combination of plastic surgical procedures (tummy tuck, liposuction and breast enhancement) that helps women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies.
However, there are lots of myths regarding this popular cosmetic procedure procedure, making it difficult for women to make an informed decision about undergoing the mommy makeover procedure. Here are 4 common mommy makeover myths dispelled.
It is true that most of the women who opt for a mommy makeover procedure are mothers looking to regain their pre-baby body. However this does not imply that the procedure is meant only for mothers. This cosmetic procedure helps restore the breasts and abdomen of women whose bodies have been effected by significant weight loss, aging, or who are looking to rejuvenate their bodies with the same transformative effects, no matter if they had a child or not.
This is not true as a skilled plastic surgeon is trained in techniques to minimize incisions and reduce the visibility of scars – sometimes completely covering them. In this case, breast incisions are concealed under the breast and tummy tuck incisions are located very low on the abdomen so that they are covered with clothing and most swimsuits. Similarly liposuction scars are rather small and fade over time.
The biggest myth about mommy makeovers is that it is necessary to perform all its three component elements, a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast surgery. However this is not at all true as your plastic surgeon will specifically tailor the elements of your mommy makeover so that it meets your individual needs and aesthetic goals.
It is true that adopting healthy eating and exercise habits can help you sculpt your body. However it does not restore your skin’s youthful tautness or help perk up deflated breasts. You need surgical intervention to eliminate excessive stretched skin and for restoring the body’s aesthetic appeal.
