You don’t have to be a mom to benefit from a mommy makeover at our Torrance plastic surgery practice. This combination of procedures offers more than its name conveys. In reality, most people who are looking to tighten up stretched skin, enhance their breasts, and shrink stubborn fat deposits at the same time are likely strong candidates.
Wondering if a mommy makeover could be your key to body confidence? This blog will discuss which non-moms can benefit from a mommy makeover.
What exactly is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to enhance the body by tightening loose skin, removing excess fat, and lifting, augmenting, or reshaping the breasts.
You can choose which procedures to include based on your unique goals, but most people opt for 2 or more of the following:
The mommy makeover name comes from the fact that the concerns addressed are common among women who have had children. Loose stomach skin, deflated or sagging breasts, and fat pouches that refuse to go away are all normal, unwanted side effects of pregnancy. However, moms aren’t the only people looking to improve upon these issues.
Mommy makeovers are common after weight loss.
People who have lost significant amounts of weight also struggle with loose or stretched skin, stubborn pockets of diet- and exercise-resistant fat, and changes to the breasts due to lost volume. Just as a baby bump can stretch out the stomach, major weight fluctuations can stretch the skin on multiple areas of the body.
A mommy makeover can address all of these issues, whether or not pregnancy was a factor. The inclusion of an arm lift or thigh lift can be especially beneficial for people who are looking to tighten their skin after weight loss.
Men can benefit as well.
A mommy makeover is sometimes nicknamed a “daddy do-over” when performed on men. This variation of the procedure often includes liposuction of the chest, abs, and flanks, along with skin tightening to combat what’s often referred to as a “dad bod.” Learn more about the “dad bod” and our different approaches to enhancing it in our previous blog post.
Plans for future children are worth considering before surgery.
You can absolutely get a mommy makeover before becoming a mom. The surgery won’t affect your ability to get pregnant. However, it’s important to note that having children in the future may affect your results. Pregnancy can stretch abdominal skin and cause changes to the breasts, so many women choose to wait until they’re finished having kids to get a makeover.
