What is Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover is a type of combined surgery that generally involves removing the excess skin on the belly, giving a good shape to the breasts by either breast uplift or breast enlargement and reducing the stubborn fat. Mommy makeover may also include buttocks and vagina operations.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding are the experiences that women would like to have at least once in their life. However, pregnancy takes a toll on women’s body. During pregnancy, women gain weight and the skin loses its elasticity. Breastfeeding results in sagging breasts.
To get rid of all these problems, women start diets or exercising. Mommy makeover is a good solution to regain women’s pre-baby bodies.
