Motherhood brings drastic changes to a woman’s body. Are you trying to decide what you can do to shake those baby blahs and get your body back to your prebaby state? A Mommy Makeover may just be the answer!
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can really change a woman’s body forever. You may notice new areas of fat that just won’t go away, lost volume in the breasts, and a loss of tone and contour. Exercise and eating a good diet are both great for new mothers in all kinds of ways – but very often lifestyle changes can’t get rid of those extra bits of fat or help to restore your prebaby figure like you wish they would.
A Mommy Makeover can help. You choose the procedures you would like, such as liposuction to remove fat, a breast lift to help sagging breasts, and/or a tummy tuck to get rid of excess fat and skin (just to name a few). The two or three procedures you choose can all be done at once. This makes for a quicker recovery time, and you only have to recover from one procedure instead of a few different ones spread out over time. It also means less exposure to anesthesia.
You should be recovered from childbirth and done with breastfeeding before you are ready for a Mommy Makeover. You should also be in good health and at a stable weight. You should plan on having help around the house for about the first week after the procedure, and it typically takes 2 weeks to a month before most patients can get back to their regular activities. If you become pregnant again or you gain weight, your body will start to see changes despite your Mommy Makeover. Eat right and stay active to maintain your new post-makeover body!
