Many new mothers notice that they have lost breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. This problem, along with related changes in skin elasticity, can cause your breasts to sag and appear “deflated.” For this reason, some women choose to seek out a breast augmentation as part of a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that are customized to meet your unique needs after pregnancy, including loss of breast volume, resistant fat deposits, excess skin, loosened abdominal muscles, and more. If your body has undergone changes during pregnancy that make you feel less confident and attractive, a mommy makeover can help restore your pre-pregnancy appearance.
It’s important to remember that large breast implants may not be necessary to recapture your pre-pregnancy appearance; if you are undergoing liposuction or any other body contouring procedures at the same time, these changes may help your breasts look proportionally larger, balancing out your figure. A breast lift may be a better option in some cases. Dr. Lefkovits will help you visualize and understand what types of changes various procedures in a mommy makeover can accomplish for you.
