What does liposuction do in a mommy makeover?

Giving birth is a challenging but highly rewarding process. Pregnancy and nursing can also take a large toll on your body and most mothers find it difficult to fully restore their pre-pregnancy bodies for various reasons and as motherhood is exciting, challenging and time-consuming,  most new moms often lack adequate time to return to their earlier exercise routines before they get a handle on things around the house.

Even if you do somehow manage to find the time, your body may not cooperate as much as you’d like it to. Moms often find that they have stubborn fat in areas like the hips, thighs, and abdomen that refuse to slim down. Furthermore, since you gain a healthy 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy, quickly losing that pregnancy weight also leads to sagging skin.

And that’s where liposuction and a mommy makeover comes in. Liposuction allows you to contour and sculpt your body to return to slim fitness and your trimmed ideals.

How can liposuction help mom?

Liposuction is a procedure used to remove stubborn fat from targeted regions of your body. During the liposuction procedure, your doctor melts the fat tissues in the subcutaneous layer of your skin using a fine laser and a tube-like device called a cannula. Once the fat tissues are melted, they’re vacuumed out of your body. Given anesthesia and pain medication, the procedure is painless and not uncomfortable, and leads to little downtime. You can resume your daily activities without all the excess post-pregnancy weight.

Is liposuction all you need for a mommy makeover? 

Liposuction is the only cosmetic treatment you need for one option in a complete mommy makeover. The liposuction treatment can be customized and tailored to your specific needs. Consult a doctor, like the revered and respected Dr. Tirgari, who understands female anatomy and has helped hundreds of mothers restore their pre-pregnancy bodies.

During your consultation, Dr. Tirgari will assess your needs and discuss your expectations to curate the ideal treatment plan. Liposuction can be performed on any part of your body. As such, you can undergo liposuction to remove stubborn fat from multiple parts of your body or from one particularly stubborn area.

In most cases, liposuction is used for body contouring and to sculpt the following problem areas — thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, and love handles. While these are some of the most common problem areas with stubborn fat, you can opt for liposuction on any part of your body, including your arms, neck, pubic mound, and buffalo hump.

If you have several problem areas, you may need several liposuction sessions. However, in most cases, the procedure can be completed in a single session, allowing you to return home and recover. You may need to wear surgical garments and rest for around 3 to 4 days after the mommy makeover liposuction treatment, but you can resume most daily activities after that.
