Having a baby changes everything about your world and your body. You feel joyful about a new life with your child, but perhaps less thrilled about the impact it has on how you look.

Pre-Pregnancy BodyDespite following a healthy lifestyle, getting your pre-pregnancy body back can seem like a big hurdle.

Cosmetic procedures can help change your body permanently and reduce anxiety about your appearance. For this reason, more women are looking to “mommy makeovers” to get their pre-pregnancy body and self esteem back.

Here are three ways you can consider restoring your natural beauty back to where you were before your pregnancy.

Tummy Tuck

As your baby grows during pregnancy, the skin and muscle will lengthen. Once your baby is born, the muscles don’t always return to their pre-pregnancy position. The gap left when muscles separate causes a saggy belly, no matter how trim you might be.

A tummy tuck procedure restores the abdominal muscles to tighten them and provide a firm appearance. Excess skin is also removed. This provides the benefit of reducing stretch marks as well.

Liposuction, to remove excess fat, can safely be performed at the same time if needed. A hip-to-hip incision can be done in such a way that underwear or a bikini will cover the scars.

Breast Lifts

Your breasts grow during pregnancy and breastfeeding causing the ligaments supporting them to stretch. Once breastfeeding has finished and your breast size reduces the ligaments are no longer as effective, leading to a saggy appearance.

A breast lift removes excess skin and tightens the tissue so that breasts are positioned better. The nipples are moved to a higher position, giving them the appearance that most women seek.

In addition, some consider having breast implants along with a lift to improve their shape and increase volume.

Vaginal Tightening

During childbirth the vaginal muscles expand. These muscles can be left weakened after the birth, causing a loss of tone and control. This can lead to unpleasant symptoms such as minor incontinence, embarrassing noise, and less pleasure during sex.

A vaginal tightening procedure, or vaginoplasty, will pull together the vaginal muscles, leaving you with a firmer, narrower vagina. You should be able to enjoy sex again about six weeks after the procedure.

These procedures can help you restore your pre-pregnancy self and physique. It’s important to consider what’s right for you, so be sure to consult with a skilled professional so that you get quality long-lasting results.
