Debunking Common Misconceptions About Mommy Makeovers

Motherhood is a beautiful thing, and mothers sacrifice so much to make sure their child comes into existence. Every mother deserves to still feel like their own beautiful woman while being a mom. Pregnancy and childbirth are miracles, but take a heavy toll on the body.

That’s why aesthetic surgeons often offer combination services called mommy makeovers. A mommy makeover is a combination of aesthetic procedures that is catered to each woman’s needs. Mommy makeovers often include procedures like abdominoplasty, liposuction, breast augmentation, and breast lifts.

With any cosmetic surgery, there are some harmful misconceptions that may deter a woman from having a mommy makeover. Let’s take a look at these misconceptions and debunk them once and for all.

Mommy Makeovers Are Only for Moms

While the name of mommy makeover insinuates that the procedure is only for mothers, that isn’t true. A mommy makeover is a common name given to this type of combination surgery that is often used to help mothers restore their bodies after childbirth. That being said, any woman can take advantage of what mommy makeovers have to offer.

They Are a Weight Loss Shortcut

Mommy makeovers are not designed or used as a weight loss solution. The procedure may include liposuction to remove stubborn fat from certain areas, but liposuction is not suited or safe for significant weight loss. While losing weight may improve some of the issues that mommy makeovers address, certain things, like loose skin, cannot be fixed without surgery.

Non-Surgical Options Work The Same

Non-surgical alternatives to mommy makeovers include things like exercising for weight loss and cosmetic treatments to induce collagen production. Weight loss can help, and certain cosmetic treatments can help with loose skin. However, only surgery can remove loose skin, alter the shape of the breasts, lift the breasts, and contour the body to the degree surgery can.
