The major body changes that come with pregnancy can be dramatic. Couple this with all the changes that occur during breastfeeding and you have a situation ripe for a surgical-restoration procedure like a mommy makeover.
The mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that varies depending on the woman’s needs. Breast surgery of some kind is usually included.
Early in a woman’s life, their breasts are primarily made up almost entirely of breast tissue. Over time, some fatty tissue slowly replaces some of a woman’s breast tissue. These gradual changes are rapidly magnified with weight gain during pregnancy.
If a woman chooses to breastfeed, it is very common for their breasts to lose a significant amount of volume. This is the main reason why a woman’s breasts become less “perky” over time and why breast surgeries like lifts and augmentations are common additions to the mommy makeover.
