Breast Surgery Options for Those Considering a Mommy Makeover

123 0

Many new mothers quickly realise the immense toll that pregnancy and breastfeeding can have on their bodies and it becomes quite easy to fall out of love with the body you’re left with after this major life event.

 Every woman wants to have a body that they feel beautiful in, which is where a mommy makeover comes in.

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures after pregnancy and childbirth and is almost always included in a mommy makeover. However, this is not the only type of breast surgery that you can include in your makeover.

Mommy Makeovers: Breast Surgery Options

Breast Augmentation

Childbirth and age can both leave you with breasts that are less perky and voluptuous but breast augmentation can change that. During your consultation with your plastic surgeon, you will be provided with in-depth information on the procedure and will be taken through incision, placement and implant options so that you can choose a shape and size that works for you.

Breast Reduction

While many women are left with smaller breasts after pregnancy, some are left with larger breasts that become a daily struggle. Breast size preferences are different for every woman so making the decision to have breast reduction surgery is a personal choice. Dr Sharp is a specialist for breast reduction surgery and can help you make a change that will improve your overall quality of life. Since breast reduction surgery and augmentation are so different, your surgeon will take you through some additional information such as the fact that your ability to breastfeed might be affected after the surgery.

Breast Lift

Every mother will experience some breast sagging, which is why a breast lift can also be added to your mommy makeover if this is a major problem for you. A breast lift will improve the shape of your breasts and reposition them higher up on your chest. Your nipples and areola will also more than likely be repositioned during this surgery to give you the most natural results possible.

Preparing for Your Consultation

During your mommy makeover consultation, you will be discussing your aesthetic goals with your surgeon so that a custom makeover can be developed just for you. In terms of your breast surgery, incisions will be one of the many factors that your surgeon will discuss with you as this is something that needs to be decided on prior to your procedure.

There are several different techniques that can be used, each of which have their own pros and cons. You will be taken through these different techniques and your surgeon will provide you with their recommendation too but ultimately, the final decision is yours.

If you’ve been researching mommy makeovers, you will know that there are several different procedures that can be performed at once but it’s important to remember that you don’t need to undergo all of the procedures, particularly if there’s no real need for me. Tailor your mommy makeover to suit your specific needs for the best results.
