Aging and the constant rollercoaster of hormones can change the way our bodies look and feel. Women’s bodies surrender to the biggest changes of all in their bodies as they carry children; certain areas of the body stretch and expand to accommodate a new baby. Our mommy makeover procedure is for women that have previously been pregnant and want to restore their youthful pre-baby shape.
The areas of the female body that change the most are the abdominal area, arms, thighs, and breasts. The abdominal area stretches as the uterus expands and the baby grows within the new mother; that means stretching of the skin, abdominal muscles and all, in the tummy. When a woman becomes pregnant, there is a production of cascading hormones to help trigger body changes for pregnancy. These hormones alert the uterus to begin prepping the area for gestation of the baby; the breasts begin to enlarge, and the mammary glands produce milk. Women retain more fluids and increase blood volume during this time as well.
As the months tick by, weight gain and swelling happens throughout the body and stretch marks form. After birth, the changes continue because children require a production of milk from the breasts to feed. As the breasts undergo months of breastfeeding, the skin expands and can sag over time. The mommy makeover procedure is ideal for women that are done having children and would like to repair their body. Childbirth is one of the most beautiful human attributes but can cause many undesired changes for women. To help our female clients remedy the things that diet and exercise cannot make new, we offer this top surgical procedure at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts.
