Five Things You Need To Know About A Mommy MakeoverPregnancy is one of the most important events in a woman’s life. But sometimes the joy of motherhood is overshadowed by the changes that the woman’s body undergoes due to pregnancy and lactation. This is when Mommy Makeover comes to the rescue. The Mommy Makeover approach helps turn back the clock and give the pre-pregnancy body back to the woman, often with significant improvements so that you can love your body more than ever before. While it sounds [and looks] like a miracle, it is possible entirely thanks to the skills and expertise of our professional cosmetic surgeons.
It is time to admit that for many women, diet and physical activity are not enough to regain their bodies after childbirth. Regardless of how diligently a woman takes care of herself before and during pregnancy, changes to the female body are often so significant that they require cosmetic surgery. This is especially true for changes in the abdominal area and breasts (size, shape, and sometimes both).
What Is Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeover is usually a set of procedures or treatments that can include tummy tuck, breast enlargement or lift, breast reduction, liposuction (in one or multiple areas), vaginal rejuvenation, and other procedures that are tailored to everyone’s individual needs. And not all procedures are surgical. At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, we offer the widest range of minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedures that can very efficiently treat problem areas resulting from childbirth.
Abdominoplasty is a popular Mommy Makeover procedure that removes excess skin and fat in the abdomen, tightens the abdominal muscles, and returns the navel to its normal position. If the breasts lost their shape after lactation, a breast lift can be a great solution for mommies; or a breast lift combined with a breast augmentation if you want to improve your shape. If the breasts become too large after lactation, breast reduction surgery may be a much-needed solution, especially for those mommies, who considered a breast reduction surgery for a while, even before pregnancy.
And then of course, there is the challenge of weight gain that many mommies experience after pregnancy. Body fat can accumulate in the stomach and hip areas after pregnancy and childbirth. Liposuction allows you to get rid of excess fat, as well as remove it, if necessary, from various body areas that are not limited to the stomach and hips, like the knees, hands, neck, etc. The fat can be also transferred to other body areas that need improvement, and in such cases, VASER liposuction can be an excellent choice.
With our Mommy Makeover procedures, we help you look as great as you feel about being a mother. We know that you deserve to be in love with your reflection in the mirror!
The exact combination of procedures you need and the methodology that fits your individual needs best is evaluated by a cosmetic surgeon during an in-person consultation. We carefully consider your goals and expectations and then create a plan that can combine several procedures in one operation in some cases. Combining procedures reduces the time required for a full recovery and allows you to return to your usual lifestyle quickly. It can often reduce the cost of the procedures as well.
Who Needs the Mommy Makeover Package?
As the name of the procedure suggests, it’s designed for women who want to improve their bodies after childbirth. However, it’s not only for women who experienced weight gain or acquired stretch marks after pregnancy. Mommy Makeover is also for those who experienced significant weight loss, have excess skin, or came across other challenges after giving birth and breastfeeding. And even if you are the lucky mom who quickly bounced back to her pre-pregnancy weight but would like to improve certain areas of your appearance to feel more confident and absolutely fabulous, Mommy Makeover is for you, too!
Before the procedure, it is important to normalize your weight as much as possible. It’s recommended in order to see maximum results from your Mommy Makeover experience.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
The recovery period after Mommy Makeover procedures can take from one to three weeks, depending on the number of procedures performed and their nature, i.e. the amount of intervention. This is the time when a woman needs to follow the doctor’s recommendations, sometimes wear special underwear, and bandages, relax more, and give up heavy physical activities.
One thing you should not worry about is noticeable scars after the surgery. Today’s technology and our surgeons’ expertise in cosmetic surgery allow us to minimize scarring and make incisions in inconspicuous places where they will not be visible after healing.
The first results of Mommy Makeover become noticeable three to four months after the procedure(s). The full impact can be seen from six months to a year. Cosmetic surgery allows you to eliminate body defects quickly and effectively.
