A mommy makeover is a cosmetic procedure that will help you get back to your pre-pregnancy body. But what do you need to know about a non-surgical mommy makeover?
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Your body can accomplish amazing things during pregnancy and childbirth. However, this miracle of life can dramatically alter your appearance. If you choose to have a vaginal delivery, pregnancy and childbirth can cause your stomach to stretch, give you acne, and increase your hair loss. These changes in your body can impact your self-esteem and self-image, leading to concerns about your figure.
A mommy makeover involves a series of plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures that focus on the breasts, abdomen, and hip regions. A specialist plastic surgeon performs these procedures, which reduces the chance of complications. These are some of the most common methods in mommy makeovers:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Brazilian Butt Lift
- Tummy Tuck
To allow your body to heal, until six months after giving birth, you should not do any mommy makeover. These makeovers might cost differently depending on the methods you choose.
Is there a Non-surgical Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover involves a series of primarily surgical procedures. Understandably, many women might not want that, but that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve your pre-pregnancy body. However, there are non-surgical ways to operate mommy makeovers.
A noninvasive mommy makeover may be right for you if you are concerned about undergoing surgery.
Non-surgical Mommy Makeover Procedures
Non-surgical mommy makeover procedures that are popular and most commonly performed are the following:
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
During childbirth, your vagina can be stretched and strained, often leading to laxity. This can cause your vaginal skin to separate from the underlying muscles, and you may use laser vaginal rejuvenation to repair your vagina without the need for surgery.
A laser probe will need to be inserted into the vagina. This procedure is for stimulates collagen growth in the vaginal area. Increased collagen will improve the vaginal skin’s structural stability. It also stimulates elastin production, enhancing elasticity: this non-surgical, incision-free method repairs loosening or laxity in your vaginal area.
Your uterus and skin are stretched during pregnancy to accommodate the growing baby, and this stretched skin can cause stretch marks and sag after childbirth. Doctors can perform a tummy tuck, whether traditional or mini depending on how severe the sagginess is. For a non-surgical makeover to reduce the skin’s sagginess, you can opt for the Exilis Ultra procedure.
Micro-Needling with PRP
Stretch marks are a sign of pregnancy, as we have already mentioned. Stretch marks can appear anytime your skin expands rapidly or significantly as in pregnancy. They can either be a nuisance or a pleasant reminder of your pregnancy. The choice to keep or remove them is up to you.
Micro-needling with PRP can reduce stretch marks. Microneedling creates tiny wounds on your skin to promote healing. Because skin healing requires PRP or platelet-rich plasma containing several components, the effects of micro-needling will magnify.
Weight gain is another side effect of pregnancy nobody wants. This is because it would seem impossible to lose weight. Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive treatment that can remove stubborn fat.
Exposure to extreme temperatures (cold or hot) can result in fat cells dying naturally. However, during cryolipolysis, extreme cold can affect your fat cells, resulting in cell death and significant weight loss.
