4 Plastic Surgery Procedures For New Moms

For many women, having a baby is one of the greatest joys in life. Growing your family with a new child can be immensely rewarding in many ways. However, having a child also brings many changes to your body. If you're like many women, you may long for your pre-baby body and wish that you had the same confidence that you used to. Luckily, you can still have a great figure after becoming a mother. Here are four plastic surgery procedures that can give you the body you've been dreaming of.

1. Breast lift

Once you've finished breastfeeding your child, you may notice that your breasts aren't as perky as they used to be. If this bothers you, you should consider getting a breast lift. This is a procedure that will restore tone and lift to your breasts for a natural, beautiful result.

2. Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is another option if you aren't completely happy with your breasts after pregnancy. Some women experience a loss of breast fullness after pregnancy; it's possible to lose a full cup size or two. Breast augmentation can be done in a discreet way to restore your pre-pregnancy breast size. Or if you prefer, you can even choose a larger size for an enhanced figure.

3. Tummy tuck

If you have loose skin leftover from your pregnancy, you may have tried to reduce its appearance through diet and exercise. Unfortunately, those methods won't be able to fix the issue of saggy skin. A tummy tuck can actually remove excess skin, leaving you with a slimmer midriff and a flat stomach. If you suffered from diastasis recti, or separation of your abdominal muscles during pregnancy, your plastic surgeon can repair it during your tummy tuck procedure. 

4. Mommy makeover

A mommy makeover is the colloquial term for a collection of plastic surgery procedures performed at the same time, for the purpose of making a woman's body look better after childbirth. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a mommy makeover can include the previously mentioned procedures, as well as buttocks augmentation and liposuction. If you have a few things you'd like to change about your body, a mommy makeover is a great option since it can save you money. It's also much safer to only go under general anesthesia once instead of several times if you were to space out the procedures.
