Kansas City Mommy Makeover

October 31, 2013, 9:11 am

Having children is one of the most rewarding aspects of many women’s lives. It is also, however, an event that can wreak havoc on a woman’s body.

Pregnancy, birth and nursing effect different women to a different extent depending on a number of variables from age to genetics to the number of times they’ve given birth. Common complaints about the body after having children include sagging, excess skin which was stretched out to accommodate the baby and was unable to shrink back to its original size, sagging or drooping breasts which may or may not lose mass as well as perk after nursing, and some women have a difficult time losing the excess weight after pregnancy.

Mommy Makeovers are a term coined in the past few years to mark the growing trend of mothers coming in for cosmetic surgery to get their bodies back and their confidence after having children. A Mommy Makeover is not one procedure or even necessarily any specific set of procedures, but rather encompasses the individually created procedures to cater to each Mom’s specific needs to create the results she desires. Most commonly a Mommy Makeovers include breast lift with or without augmentation, abdomionplasty (tummy tuck), and occasionally liposuction.
