Motherhood is a joyous and exciting time accompanied by moments of great sacrifice. But as we all know childbirth irrevocably changes women’s bodies. This is especially true for women experiencing their second or third child.
Fitness can do wonders for re-establishing a youthful appearance and can be started safely 6-8 weeks after giving birth along with proper diet and nutrition. Sometimes, no matter how much we exercise or follow a strict diet regimen, many mothers still struggle with the affects that childbirth and aging has on their bodies. Sagging breasts, stretched out skin and stubborn pockets of fat in the abdomen known as “muffin-tops” are typical of post partum patients.
Luckily for moms in Houston, the “Mommy Makeover” is the answer for many Moms seeking to address these problem areas.
This typically involves a combination of procedures including liposuction, breast-lift or breast augmentation and a “tummy tuck “ (or abdominoplasty). The surgery itself can be performed all at once or be separated into two or three.
The latest statistics show a growing trend in ” Mommy Makeovers “. In the last decade alone (2000-2010), procedures for breast augmentation have gone up 39%, breast -lifts up 70% and Tummy Tucks up a staggering 85%, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Advances in medical technology have also made these procedures safer, less painful and with quicker recovery times.
