Pregnancy causes a variety of changes in the body. Not only does pregnancy affect hormone levels and blood volume, but it can also alter your appearance. To counteract the physical effects pregnancy has on your body, talk to your physician about a mommy makeover in Chicago Loop. Here are some procedures commonly included in this multi-procedure surgery.
The effects of pregnancy and
breastfeeding can cause the breasts to lose muscle tone and density,
which can cause them to sag. Some women may even develop upper back
or shoulder pain as a result of pendulous breasts. During your mommy
makeover in Chicago Loop, your plastic surgeon will surgically
elevate your breasts, and in some cases, may recommend that you
consider saline implants to further enhance your appearance.
Another popular cosmetic procedure
that you may get during your mommy makeover is a tummy tuck. Also
known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes skin and excess adipose
tissue from your abdominal area. This gives the area a taut and toned
appearance. You may need to wear a compression garment or abdominal
binder for support and to enhance circulation for a month or more
following your procedure.
In addition to promoting circulation
and keeping you comfortable, your compression garment will also help
reduce post-operative inflammation. It will also help lower your risk
of fluid retention and infection. While your garment should be mildly
snug, wearing it too tight may impair your circulation.
