Being pregnant is very special for a woman since different physical and emotional changes takes place making it one of the most important phases in a woman’s life cycle, and after having the baby many just do not feel comfortable with their new body and search for procedures that can help overcome these changes.

Mommy makeover, popular term in the USA and Europe, is when a woman after her pregnancies have breast, abdomen and vaginal procedures done. It is important to know we must wait six to 12 months after delivering the baby and stop breast feeding before having any aesthetic surgical procedure to prevent increasing surgery risks. The most common procedures moms seek are:

Breast enhancement: After breastfeeding breasts usually descend, with this procedure we reposition breasts to their previous form.

Tummy tuck: After pregnancies abdominal muscles are loose secondary to muscle over stretching during pregnancy. This can be corrected with surgery by suturing muscles back again into position and eliminating excess skin.

Liposuction: Gaining weight during pregnancy can leave us with unwanted fat deposits in hips, thighs, back and abdomen. With this procedure we sculpt your body eliminating these fat deposits.

Vaginal Rejuvenation: After pregnancies vaginal walls loose their tone making us woman decrease our sexual desire since we get less and less sexual gratification with sexual intercourse. This procedure tightens vaginal walls giving us more friction during sexual inter course and increasing our sexual gratification.

After pregnancies it is recommended that our body comes back to its normal state by having a healthy lifestyle in combination with usage of a tight garment, healthy nutrition and regular exercising and also waiting some time before having any surgical aesthetic procedure. Certainly while waiting for surgery non surgical procedures can be a good option. Also it is advisable when planing a mommy makeover procedure not having any more kids since every pregnancy comes with some body changes that can decrease previous surgical improvements.
