Regain Your Pre-Baby Confidence With a Mommy Makeover

Bringing a baby into the world can be a joyous, life-changing experience. But pregnancy, giving birth, and breastfeeding can take a serious toll on your body. Having a baby often permanently changes a woman’s body, and it can significantly impact both body image and confidence.

You may have heard of a mommy makeover, a term used for a series of cosmetic procedures aimed at restoring or even improving upon your pre-pregnancy body. If you’re unhappy with the way your body changed with childbearing, you don’t have to accept lower levels of confidence as an inevitable part of motherhood.

Trust your body to Dr. Jack Hensel Jr. and his expert team at Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center. Offering the latest plastic surgery technology for mommy makeovers, Dr. Hensel is here to help you love your look again.

How pregnancy and breastfeeding change your body

Your body goes through significant changes during pregnancy as your baby grows. Skin, tissue, and muscles around your abdomen stretch to accommodate a growing baby, while breasts enlarge as a result of hormones and milk production. 

While every woman is different, it’s common that your stomach doesn’t bounce back to its pre-baby look after giving birth. You might notice stretch marks, sagging skin, or areas of fat that just won't go away. 

If you breastfeed your children, your breasts can change significantly. Breasts can grow as much as one full cup size during pregnancy and breastfeeding. But once you stop breastfeeding, breasts lose volume, sag, and may not look like they did before pregnancy. 

Many women are embarrassed about their bodies following childbirth and breastfeeding. It can be difficult or impossible to regain your pre-baby body on your own, and that’s where mommy makeovers at Lowcountry Plastic Surgery come in.

A mommy makeover can be a great option for women who want to boost their self-confidence. In general, women who are in good health, are done having children, and are close to their ideal body weight are good candidates for mommy makeovers.

Feel better in your skin with a personalized mommy makeover

Mommy makeovers are a popular type of cosmetic surgery that can reverse many of the effects that pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding have on a woman’s body. Breast lifts or augmentation, vaginal rejuvenation, and abdominal reshaping are all common elements of mommy makeovers.

Dr. Hensel customizes every mommy makeover based on each patient’s body, concerns, and aesthetic goals. Typically, a mommy makeover includes at least two of the following procedures:

Because the breasts and abdomen are usually the most affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding, your mommy makeover may focus on these areas. But your makeover is completely customizable, so be sure to talk to Dr. Hensel and our team about any procedures you’re interested in.

One of the biggest benefits of a mommy makeover is that many cosmetic procedures can be performed at the same time. That means you can achieve significant results and regain that pre-baby confidence without the need for multiple surgeries.

Most mommy makeovers are done in an outpatient setting, so you can recover at home. Depending on your unique treatment plan, recovery can take up to two weeks. Many women who get mommy makeovers report boosted confidence and increased satisfaction with the way their bodies look.
