People often ask, “what is your main specialty at Omni Cosmetic?” Our most common answer had been “Moms.” We have helped thousands of moms write a new chapter in their own stories about their bodies. Motherhood can be a wonderful and life-changing experience. However, for some women, there is no doubt that their bodies can change during pregnancy as well after childbirth and breastfeeding. The breasts and abdomen are the primary areas of change with motherhood, although weight gain with pregnancy can cause more problems. Throughout a pregnancy, the abdominal muscles, skin and tissues stretch to accommodate the growing baby safely, breasts will also enlarge, increasing as much as a full cup size or more. Once breastfeeding is completed, returning to ‘normal’ can mean a significant loss of the skin tone of the abdomen and the breast volume and noticeable sagging.
Sometimes, those changes can be reversed through lifestyle modifications—exercise and good nutrition, for example—but in many cases, the changes following pregnancy and breastfeeding seem permanent. While there is much joy in motherhood, there’s no getting around the fact that a woman’s body changes after giving birth as well as after breastfeeding. A mommy makeover has been the term most popularized to describe the combinations of surgery developed to address some of the variety of changes and restore your body’s shape and appearance. Despite the sweet name, a mommy makeover can involve a complex set of techniques that can be modified and customized to the individual patient. At Omni Cosmetic, we understand that there isn’t a one size fits all when it comes to this set of procedures. Some women need just a little improvement, and others with more severe consequences from pregnancies need more surgery to help them accomplish their goals.
