What is a Mommy Makeover Procedure?
A mommy makeover refers to a certain combination of cosmetic procedures that help a woman regain her pre-pregnancy figure after she is finished with pregnancy and lactation. The mommy makeover may improve your breasts, tummy, torso, and waistline, restoring your pre-pregnancy shape.
How Can a Mommy Makeover Improve My Appearance?
Let’s face it: our bodies just aren’t the same after pregnancy. Many women, after having children, are left with a thicker waistline, drooping breasts, stretch marks, lax abdominal muscles, and loose flaccid skin in the midsection. The mommy makeover is a custom procedure personally tailored for you, to restore firmness and contour to your body after you are done with pregnancy and lactation. A mommy makeover is a strategic combination of various procedures to correct all of these issues, producing a taut, flat abdomen, a slimmer waistline, and a smoother and tighter midsection.
What Is Included In A Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover typically includes a combination of these cosmetic procedures, performed in a single treatment session. By combining these procedures into one session, you save time on recovery, as well as cost.
- Breast Enhancement : If pregnancy and lactation have left your breasts drooping and flaccid, you may benefit from a breast enhancement treatment such as breast augmentation and/or a breast lift to rejuvenate your chest and upper body.
- Tummy Tuck : Want your waistline back? A tummy tuck procedure shrinks and tightens your waistline while also tightening your abdominal muscles. This treatment also gets rid of unsightly stretch marks as well as the loose flaccid skin around the midsection.
- Liposuction : Liposuction is a versatile procedure that is often included in a mommy makeover as a means to extract excess fatty tissue and stubborn bulges from problem areas outside the surgical treatment sites, such as eliminating bra bulges from the back, or tightening the upper arms or thighs.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover is ideal for any healthy adult woman who has had all the children she desires and wants to reclaim her body after pregnancy and lactation. You must not be currently pregnant or lactating, nor planning to become pregnant again in the future, as pregnancy could adversely affect the results of your procedure by causing many of the same problems again.
What Can I Expect After a Mommy Makeover?
The biggest benefit of having a mommy makeover is the fact that you will have to go through a single recovery period for all the procedures. However, in order to heal fully and optimally, you must allow your body to rest fully for at least a week.
You can expect to experience the expected soreness and swelling, which typically subsides gradually over a few days. Arnica is a natural herb that helps the body by reducing inflammation and alleviating bruising.
As you go through the healing process, your new body will begin to reveal itself. Most patients can see results within 12 months.
How Soon Can I Exercise After a Mommy Makeover?
You should be able to resume gentle activities within a couple of weeks following the procedure, and we urge you to follow our post-operative instructions faithfully to optimize your recovery. However, during your recovery period, you must avoid strenuous physical activity, including such things as carrying heavy items, excessive bending, and even sexual activity, and this may take four to six weeks, depending on several factors such as your specific combination of procedures, as well as your age and overall physical condition.
If pregnancy and lactation have left you with a sagging body and drooping self-esteem, a mommy makeover may be your ideal solution.
