Mommy Makeover

The term mommy makeover refers to a customizable combination of cosmetic surgery procedures designed to address the physical changes which take place as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, enabling patients to restore their pre-pregnancy body. Just as the changes to the body brought about by childbirth can have a devastating impact on a woman’s confidence levels, the enhancements achieved with a mommy makeover can drastically improve a patient’s body contour, self-image, and self-esteem. As a result, an increasing number of women are requesting mommy makeovers in Miami to transform their bodies from head to toe.

A Mommy Makeover Is The Latest Trend

The desire amongst women to maintain or restore their pre-baby body is nothing new; as far back as the 1970s and 1980s many women began to request breast augmentation surgery to correct postpartum changes to their breasts. In addition, women have long worked to shed unwanted baby weight through diet and exercise routines. However, the combination of procedures categorized as a mommy makeover is a new trend in cosmetic surgery which enables women to correct a number of common concerns in one procedure, reducing the cost and recovery time involved with multiple procedures.

While previous generations often felt they had no choice but to embrace the natural changes brought about by aging and childbirth, more and more women now actively seek ways to delay or defy the aging process and preserve their pre-pregnancy body. Our society’s preference for youth coupled with a greater acceptance of plastic surgery and emphasis on fitness, has led an increasing number of young women to request a mommy makeover to bring about the transformation they desire. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), 29% of the 9.9 million patients who underwent cosmetic surgery procedures in 2006 were women aged 20 to 29, while 36% were women aged 30 to 39.

Why Women Choose The Mommy Makeover

Following pregnancy, it is estimated that only one third of women’s breasts return to their pre-pregnancy size, shape and projection. The remaining two thirds of women are plagued with stretched skin, sagging, or a loss of volume in the chest. In addition, after being stretched during pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are often separated, which means that even the most rigorous exercise routine will not enable women to tighten and tone their stomach on their own. As a result of these undesirable changes, many women are now turning to a mommy makeover, which frequently combines a breast lift or breast augmentation with abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck.

These procedures, which are often combined with additional treatments such as liposuction, make it possible for women to look and feel as good as they did prior to giving birth. The unparalleled results brought about by a mommy makeover have made it one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures today and led to a 55% jump in the number of breast augmentations performed, a 96% increase in the number of breast lifts performed, and an incredible 4384% increase in the number of tummy tucks performed from 2000 to 2006.
