Gravity, age, having children, and the stress of life can take its toll on a woman's body. While every woman's body faces different cosmetic obstacles, this surgical procedure can address and correct various issues to help a woman, once again, feel great about how she looks. To better understand how a mommy makeover can be beneficial and what areas it can help, here is some information about how it works.

What is the aesthetic goal of a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a procedure designed to give women a one-day makeover to restore their bodies for a variety of reasons, including pregnancy or weight loss. Mommy makeovers target a number of concerns, like loose skin, excess fat, deflated breasts, and more. They are convenient, cost-effective and tailored to each patient's unique needs. Since it occurs in one day and only involves one recovery period, mommy makeovers are becoming a trend for women in Louisville, KY who want to feel more confident.

What are the top five areas women target?

The multifaceted approach of a mommy makeover generally involves a combination of cosmetic procedures that vary from patient to patient. When diet and exercise are not enough, many women turn to this plastic surgery makeover to reshape their bodies and gain the appearance they desire. Here are the top five locations for a mommy makeover:

1. Breasts

A woman's natural breasts can lose volume or shape with fluctuating weight and hormones, and even with age. Breast augmentation can restore a woman's natural breasts in size and shape to provide a more aesthetically appealing profile. Women who are pleased with the current size of their natural breasts, but feel they are not as perky as they used to be, can also consider a breast lift. This surgical procedure removes excess skin and relocates the breasts by correcting ptosis or sagging. A breast lift can also be done in conjunction with breast augmentation, when necessary, for optimal results.

2. Stomach

A healthy diet and exercise can only do so much when it comes to skin regaining its elasticity, especially with the abdominal area. Many women, as a result of pregnancy, struggle with this issue, along with stretched or descended abdominal muscles. A traditional tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can tighten loose abdominal skin and underlying tissues, and even eliminate stretch marks.

3. Lower body

It is common with significant weight loss or pregnancy for women to deal with a loss of firmness to their skin. A lower body lift can eliminate loose skin in the thighs, buttocks, hips, and abdomen. By removing skin that has lost elasticity, women can have a smoother and leaner lower body.

4. Additional areas

Liposuction is another popular option with a mommy makeover. This body contouring technique can eliminate stubborn areas of excess fat from the stomach, back, thighs, hips, and other areas giving women a more contoured, sculpted appearance.

5. Face

Today, more women are adding noninvasive treatments, like BOTOX®, dermal fillers, or KYBELLA®, to their makeover. Facial injectables are an easy cosmetic addition and can help women eliminate fine lines and wrinkles while adding a youthful glow to the skin. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery offers an extensive list of nonsurgical options for women to give their complexion a fresh, new look.
