Reshaping the Breasts with a Mommy Makeover
Whether you breastfed, formula fed, or did a little bit of both, you may find that your breasts just aren’t the same since you had your children. If you’re ready to get your pre-pregnancy body back, a mommy makeover in New York or New Jersey might be a great solution.
What happened to my breasts?
The hormonal changes of pregnancy can cause breast changes and tenderness. In some women, the hormones associated with the postpartum period can further change the shape and appearance of the breasts. Some women get lucky and have fuller, perkier breasts after having a baby. But many women find that their breasts have sagged, stretched, or deflated during or after pregnancy. For some previously symmetrical women, they may experience lopsidedness after having a baby or stopping breastfeeding.
The good news is that all of these breast changes can be fixed. In some cases, a simple breast lift is all that’s necessary to restore your breasts to their pre-pregnancy condition. In situations where a woman’s breasts have expanded, she may need a breast reduction in order to be comfortable again. With women whose breasts have sagged or deflated, breast augmentation may help to give them a youthful, pre-pregnant appearance.
Why a mommy makeover?
In addition to the breast changes, you might find that other parts of your body have changed since before you were pregnant. Some women feel that their tummies are loose or stretched after pregnancy. In some women, their abdominal muscles may be separated, a condition called diastasis recti. It may also include a tummy tuck, liposuction, or a non-surgical procedure as a way to restore firmness to the belly or to other areas. Your mommy makeover can combine a variety of procedures to help you get back to normal.
