In a recent article for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, we discuss the most common questions women have about recovery after labiaplasty.
A mommy makeover is a plastic surgery approach designed to restore you to your pre-pregnancy youthful shape. Pregnancy changes the shape and volume of breasts, deflating them to different degrees. For some women the breasts become smaller than they ever were. That volume loss combined with the stretched out skin creates breasts that we do not recognize as our own.
The belly stretches internally (loosening your once tight “six-pack”) and externally. This loosens the abdominal wall, also called diastasis recti, and results in sagging overhanging skin. Wearing your pre-pregnancy wardrobe may be impossible! Unfortunately, these problems do not change in spite of our best efforts at diet and exercise. So what is the good news, you ask? We can address all of them in one surgical setting with a mommy makeover!
