As most mothers can attest, having a baby is life changing. While the birth of a child brings memories and experiences that are invaluable for parents, it can also mean major long-term changes to a mother’s body that are a little less than welcome. Hearing these concerns from numerous post-maternity patients, Dr. James Namnoum of Atlanta Plastic Surgery, began offering mommy makeover surgery.
Mommy makeover surgery consists of several cosmetic procedures designed to restore mothers’ bodies to their pre-baby appearance. Often, this includes a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty), to tighten the abdominal muscle and/or remove skin that is stretched with the baby’s growth, liposuction of small areas of fat, and breast augmentation or breast reduction to remedy the effects of breast feeding.
With the pressure on new mother’s to instantly bounce back to their pre-baby appearance, it’s important to realize that major physical changes take time. It takes nine whole months for a baby to fully develop. Therefore, it is unrealistic to expect that reversing the effects from those changes could be instantaneous. Equally important to note, mommy makeover surgery is only suitable for those women who are done having children; as additional pregnancy could reverse surgical results.
