Pregnancy stretches the skin and muscles of the abdomen, also called the six-pack muscles, and can actually permanently separate them. No amount of diet or exercise can bring them back together.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
The after-effects of childbirth and breastfeeding can take a toll on a woman’s body, often resulting in permanent changes to a new Mom’s figure. In the perpetually youthful culture we live in today, many women find this condition unacceptable, regardless of how much they enjoy motherhood itself. Thanks to a new procedure dubbed the “Mommy Makeover,” however, there is hope.
Dr. Armenta states, “Pregnancy stretches the skin and muscles of the abdomen, also called the “six-pack” muscles, and can actually permanently separate them. No amount of diet or exercise can bring them back together.”
That leaves only one solution then; cosmetic surgery. The Mommy Makeover procedure is expressly designed to address the most common “problem” areas, which can affect not only a woman’s appearance, but also her self-esteem when diet and exercise fail to rectify the issue time and time again.
To address the issue of muscle separation in the abdomen, abdominoplasty (also known as a “tummy tuck”) is often incorporated into the Mommy Makeover procedure. This procedure allows for the abdominal muscles to be surgically put back together and may or may not involve liposuction, depending upon the individual goals and physical state of the patient.
Breast lifts are also quite frequently incorporated into the Mommy Makeover procedure, effectively lifting the breasts back to their more youthful, pre-motherhood position. This is not the same thing as breast augmentation, though the latter may also be incorporated into the procedure based upon the patient’s desired outcome from the procedure.
The goal of the Houston plastic surgeon is to help women fit cosmetic enhancement surgery into their already busy schedules as moms. The Mommy Makeover is designed to address multiple post-pregnancy body issues at once, as opposed to multiple surgical appointments with multiple blocks of recovery time.
