Who Should Consider a Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeover plastic surgery may be appropriate for you if:

  • Your pregnancy has left your breasts misshapen and you are unhappy about them
  • You are distressed about stretch marks and a sagging tummy
  • Fat pockets on your abdomen, waist, thighs, or arms don’t improve with exercise or diet

Pros of Mommy Makeover

Benefits of a mommy makeover cosmetic surgery include:

  • Restoring a flat tummy and a youthful bust
  • Having your swimwear and clothes fit better
  • Returning to a slimmer body appearance

Inclusions in Mommy Makeover Treatment

The following may be included in the overall procedure:

  1. Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty is an invasive surgical procedure that removes fat and skin to provide a smoother and flatter stomach.

  1. Breast enhancement

Breast augmentation can be used for increasing the size of your breasts. You can also get a breast lift if you only want your breasts to appear shapely and more perky.

  1. Liposuction

This minimally invasive procedure works to extract surplus fat from the abdomen, thighs, and other areas where it can be difficult to lose fat despite exercise and diet.

  1. Buttock augmentation

You can increase the size of your buttocks using fat transfer or implants to give them better shape.

  1. Cellulite reduction

You can improve your skin texture and remove cellulite by using laser techniques.

  1. Stretch mark removal

The surgeon can remove stretch marks through non-invasive laser techniques.

  1. Vaginal rejuvenation

This plastic surgery is aimed at improving the aesthetical appearance of the vagina following childbirth.

The best part about mommy makeover is that typically all procedures are performed during a single surgery. However, there may be certain procedures that are performed over a period of time with healing periods in between. You will be anesthetized during the surgery to minimize pain and discomfort. 

Recovery in Mommy Makeover

Most patients have all procedures performed together during mommy makeover and have to bear recovery downtime just once. The first week is usually the worst. In relation to this, it will still take another 2 to 3 weeks for you to start feeling any better. 

You will be restricted from bending over or lifting anything heavy till about 6 weeks from the surgery. This includes lifting your children. Mommy makeover procedures are specific to the individual as with the majority of plastic surgery procedures. Results of the procedure will take a few months to completely settle in and become visible.
