Being a mom means going on the journey of a lifetime – but sometimes that journey may involve feeling out of touch with your post-baby body.
Women’s bodies go through incredible changes to grow and nurture, which is why they don’t always snap back after birth and breastfeeding. So whether you’re a new mom or your children are in college, don’t feel bad about missing your pre-baby body…
Instead, discover how to get it back with a Mommy Makeover.
Including a Tummy Tuck in Your Mommy Makeover
One of the most popular choices in a Mommy Makeover is a tummy tuck. This surgery – more formally known as an abdominoplasty – repairs the abdominal wall that may have been damaged during pregnancy. When the muscles of the abdominal wall are damaged, they push out, creating the appearance of a tummy pooch.
That’s why you may not be seeing results if you’re dieting and exercising – it’s because the pooch is caused by damaged muscles, not fat!
A tummy tuck fixes this stomach pooch by repairing abdominal muscles, creating a flatter and more contoured tummy. A tummy tuck can also be combined with liposuction surgery to show off the flatter contours of your newfound stomach.
You may want to add a tummy tuck to your Mommy Makeover if:
- You have a “tire” or pooch around your waistline
- You follow a healthy lifestyle, but haven’t been able to get rid of the pooch
