It’s been awhile since you’ve had your baby, and life is starting to get back to a somewhat normal state. You may actually have a few minutes to yourself here and there, and you are noticing how many changes your body has been through since pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood. Motherhood is amazing, but let’s face it – most of these changes are unwelcomed! A mommy makeover can help you get your pre-baby body back!
What is a mommy makeover?
Your mommy makeover is specifically designed for you and around your goals and desires. It may include a breast augmentation or breast lift for breasts that have lost volume; a tummy tuck for an abdomen with excess skin and fat; and liposuction for a sculpted, contoured look in the buttocks, hips, and thighs. Perhaps you want all of these procedures and more, or maybe you only want one of these. That’s what the consult will help you decide!
Why should you get a mommy makeover?
Becoming a mom is a beautiful process. Unfortunately, some areas of the body don’t bounce back as we wish they would and exercise and dieting can only go so far. Because a mommy makeover can involve several procedures rolled into one (within limits), the patient’s exposure to anesthesia is reduced. This also means there is only one period of recovery instead of several after separate procedures. The decision to proceed with cosmetic surgery is a very personal experience. Before considering a mommy makeover, you should be recovered from childbirth and finished with breastfeeding.
What can I expect after the procedure?
It typically takes about 2 weeks to a month before you can fully get back to your normal activities. You should have help around the house for the first week after the procedure, especially if you still have young children.
A mommy makeover gets your body back to where it was before having kids, or even better, without the worry, stress, and extra effort at a time in your life when you are busier than ever before.
