A Mommy Makeover is a group of cosmetic procedures designed to restore a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy appearance. It typically includes breast procedures and abdominoplasty and/or liposuction. However, it is completely tailored for the individual. It may also involve body contouring. The procedures may be done in stages or all at once, depending on the situation. Mommy Makeovers are customized to fit the needs and desires of the patient.
Abdominoplasty is more commonly known as a tummy tuck. During this procedure, excess skin and some fat can be removed and the underlying abdominal muscles can be tightened. This is a great way to address the midsection. Liposuction may also be used to remove pockets of excess fat from trouble areas that have not responded to diet and exercise.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding change a woman’s breasts. They can alter their size and make them more likely to droop. During a breast lift, our surgeon can tighten the muscles and remove excess fat and skin to make the breasts appear perkier and more youthful. Breast augmentation can also be used to change the size of the breasts and make them more proportionate.
Again, these are just some of the most common procedures performed during a Mommy Makeover. Other procedures may include less invasive options such as dermal fillers, facials, chemical peels and effective, medical-grade skin care products.
What is the Recovery Like?
The recovery period will vary depending on the type and number of procedures performed, but there is downtime involved. It is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing for optimal results. Once you have fully recovered, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of the procedure for years to come, so long as you live a healthy lifestyle to maintain your results.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover will be a woman in good overall health with realistic expectations. She should have a stable weight, since weight fluctuations can affect the results of the procedure.
Mommy Makeovers may actually be beneficial for women who have suffered hernias while delivering children or who have scars from C-sections. Our skilled surgeon may be able to repair such damage while performing the procedure.
