The term mommy makeover is used to describe a customized combination of plastic surgery procedures commonly performed to rejuvenate a woman’s figure after the rigors of childbirth. However, not all mommy makeover patients are mothers. The surgical plan can also benefit individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight through exercise or bariatric procedures. If you belong to that group, a mommy makeover may be appropriate.
Common Complaints After Significant Weight Loss
Our bodies can only change so much before they are unable to return to their original shape. This effect is something that many people notice when they drop a dramatic amount of weight.
Some common complaints after significant weight loss include:
- Loose skin: It’s normal for weight loss to leave behind loose skin. If you lose weight gradually or drop just a few pounds, your skin might tighten on its own. However, a procedure such as a tummy tuck is usually needed to address drooping skin caused by massive weight loss or weight loss surgery. It removes the hanging skin that might make you feel self-conscious or cause unpleasant issues such as irritation and chafing. It can also enhance the area above your belly button and even tighten your six-pack muscles.
- Excess fat: You know that you can’t target specific areas of your body for fat loss. So you may be dealing with small, stubborn pockets of excess fat even after losing a lot of weight. Fortunately, liposuction can sculpt those problem spots for a slimmer shape and more attractive body contours. It works on the hips, back, arms, and many other areas.
- Small or drooping breasts: Your breasts may go down several cup sizes as part of your weight loss efforts. Breast augmentation can return fullness and shape using implants. Similarly, a breast lift can address any unwanted sagging or drooping.
