Mommy makeover helps older mothers regain form

For many mothers, one of the most challenging aspects of giving birth is regaining their pre-pregnancy bodies. Many cosmetic procedures are aimed at providing assistance for those looking to regain their svelte physique, doctors say. The so-called "mommy makeover" includes a tummy tuck, breast lift or breast augmentation.

One of the biggest reasons for the increase in popularity of such treatments is because many women are having children later in life. As such, their bodies are much less resilient than those of their younger counterparts. While diet and exercise can be helpful, sometimes plastic surgery is the final necessary step.

“Mommy makeover” procedures can remove extra skin, minimize stretch marks and lift the breasts and body to regain a comparable figure to pre-pregnancy form.

Since recovery time is a big issue to most mothers who have active lifestyles and are still caring for children and households, it is important to discuss postsurgical care with your board certified plastic surgeon.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, breast augmentations and tummy tucks were two of the most popular surgeries in 2009.
