The combination of a breast augmentation with a tummy tuck—which can also be performed as part of a mommy makeover—has become an increasingly popular blend of cosmetic surgery procedures. The two procedures can complement each other perfectly, especially for women coping with the physical changes that occur following childbirth.
Pregnancy alters the shape of your body, most noticeably in your breasts and abdomen. Even women who resume a healthy diet and fitness regimen after giving birth can find regaining their youthful forms an exercise in futility.
Women are often left with fat deposits and stretch marks around the stomach, waist and thighs, as well as sagging breasts. But a mommy makeover can restore your appearance with a breast augmentation, tummy tuck and, in some situations, liposuction in a single procedure.
A breast augmentation can restore the volume, shape and profile of your breasts. A tummy tuck, meanwhile, removes excess skin and fat to firm and flatten your abdomen.
If you have additional unwanted body fat around your waist and thighs, liposuction may be added to this outpatient procedure.
Choosing to combine cosmetic surgery procedures such as a breast augmentation and tummy tuck offers a number of benefits, including saving money, limiting the physical impact of multiple surgeries, and lessening the recovery time of successive cosmetic surgery procedures.
