Houston, TX- With summer approaching, women and new mothers are beginning to realize it’s time to get in shape before the summer arrives. After trying on bathing suits and summer fashions women may notice that they haven’t been able to get rid of all the baby fat, or they haven’t been able to get trim through exercise alone. They don’t fret though, knowing that a plastic surgeon can help them get a bathing suit body through liposuction or a mommy makeover.
The Plastic Surgery Institute of southwest Texas stated they have seen a dramatic rise in patients seeking mommy makeovers, liposuction and breast augmentations, ahead of bikini season.
Mommy makeovers have been steadily rising over the past few years. The exact procedure a woman has depends on their individual desires, but consists of breast augmentations and lifts, in addition to body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks.
These new mothers are seeking a way to restore their bodies to the way they looked before giving birth. Pregnancy causes the skin on the belly and breast to stretch out. After birth, the excess skin will shrink back, but women are often left with folds in the abdominal area. Many women also develop stretch marks.
Liposuction can be utilized to eliminate any fat that remains after a woman has reached their original weight. For women who have extra folds of skin on the abdomen, a tummy tuck can tighten the muscles and skin, making the belly look flatter and more toned.
But tummy tucks and liposuction aren’t just for new moms; women who have reached an ideal weight can have a contouring procedure, which will give them the confidence to step out in this summer’s beach fashions.
