Becoming a mom is a beautiful process – but sometimes, after it is all said and done, a woman might wish she had her pre-baby body back. You don’t have to wish anymore, though – a mommy makeover can help!
What is a mommy makeover?
The great thing about a mommy makeover is that you can pick and choose the different procedures to get the results you want. Your mommy makeover may look completely different from anyone else’s. It is specifically designed around you and your cosmetic surgery goals, to repair areas such as the breasts and abdomen that go through the most dramatic changes after pregnancy and breastfeeding. For example, you might choose a breast augmentation and/or a breast lift to help breasts that have lost volume, liposuction to remove stubborn pockets of fat, and a tummy tuck.
You should be finished having children, recovered from childbirth, and done with breastfeeding before considering a mommy makeover. You should also have lost as much of your pregnancy weight as possible, you should be in good general health, and you shouldn’t smoke.
It can take 2 weeks to a month to get back to your normal activities after the surgery. You will be tender, swollen, bruised, and sore after the procedure, but you will be given a prescription medication to help. Make sure you have help around the house, especially if you still have young children!
What are the advantages of a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is made up of more than one procedure, but it can be done in one surgery. This means less downtime for recovery (and only one recovery period), less cost, and less hassle. However, the biggest advantage may be that you will once again feel confident with how your body looks.
Even the strictest diet and exercise regimen can only go so far – if you have the time for such things! A mommy makeover is whatever you want it to be, and it can give you the sculpted, contoured look that you had in your pre-baby days.
