Mothers sacrifice a great deal, including their bodies. For many mothers, the loss of their youthful, feminine appearance for the blessing of motherhood is discouraging. Once childbearing is over, you can regain the body you had before pregnancy and breastfeeding took their physical toll through a mommy makeover.
Mommy Makeover Procedure
The mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to restore various parts of the body. Mommy makeover procedures should be individualized to focus on the specific areas that you would like to improve which may include:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Butt Lift
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
- Skin Rejuvenation
Mommy Makeover Candidate
Essentially, any woman who has had children and struggled to regain her pre-pregnancy figure may be a candidate for a mommy makeover. However, mommy makeover candidacy can only be determined after a thorough evaluation with an experienced plastic surgeon.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Recovering from a mommy makeover will depend on the specific combination of treatments you undergo. A woman who has liposuction, breast lift and butt lift can expect a longer, more difficult recovery that a woman who has fewer procedures performed.
Regardless of the procedure, there will be a certain amount of pain and tenderness associated with the treatment areas. Post-surgical medications will likely be prescribed, and patients will be advised to avoid normal activity for a certain period of time. For example, patients who undergo butt lift will need to avoid sitting down for several days, and an abdominal binder may be advised following tummy tuck.
You will notice a great improvement in some areas soon after your mommy makeover, but other areas will require more time for the swelling to subside and incisions to heal. It may take several weeks to fully recover from your mommy makeover, depending on the extent of the procedure and number of surgeries performed.
