3 Surprising Things a Mommy Makeover Can Address
If you’re ready to have a mommy makeover, you are probably looking forward to improvements in your breasts, waistline, and other areas that you want to rejuvenate. While these areas will certainly be addressed, there are also additional benefits and areas that can be improved, and concerns that a mommy makeover can address that might be surprising.
Here are three things a mommy makeover can address that you might not have known about.
1. Stretch marks on the breasts
While the objective of a breast lift is primarily to lift the breasts higher on the chest wall and reshape and sculpt the breasts into a more attractive, youthful shape, a breast lift also removes stretch marks.
During the breast lift procedure, loose, excess skin around the breasts is removed in order to achieve more youthful-looking, firmer breasts. As a part of this, stretch marks on this skin are also removed, particularly on the underside of the breasts. If you have stretch marks on the top or sides of your breasts, you can request that these be removed as a part of the breast lift procedure. In many cases, stretch marks on the breasts can be completely eliminated by a breast lift procedure.
2. Loss of sexual pleasure
Some women find that sex is uncomfortable or that their sexual pleasure is reduced after birthing children. Labiaplasty is performed to improve the aesthetic appearance of the labia, and it also achieves other benefits when it comes to functionality and sexual pleasure. Labiaplasty corrects functional concerns with the female genitalia, and these improvements can improve sexual comfort and enhance sexual pleasure.
Large labial folds can prevent clitoral stimulation during sex, and they also create friction and irritation that can cause intercourse to be painful. These folds are reduced during a labiaplasty, which reduces uncomfortable friction and allows the right parts of your genitalia to be stimulated during intimate moments so that you can experience sexual pleasure.
3. Diastasis recti (separated abdominal muscles)
One of the most common procedures performed as a part of the mommy makeover is the tummy tuck. During the tummy tuck procedure, the abdominal wall is flattened and tightened to remove excess fat and skin. As a part of this procedure, diastasis recti, which is a condition of having a separation of the abdominal muscles, can be resolved.
Women whose pregnancies cause a diastasis recti have this condition addressed during a tummy tuck. During a tummy tuck, the abdominal muscles are sewn together again and tightened with strong, permanent sutures. This repairs the muscles and achieves a tighter, more contoured waistline.
