Are you a woman dealing with the aftereffects of childbirth or pregnancy? Are you unhappy in your body due to unwanted fat or loose skin after giving birth? Then you may be a great candidate for a mommy makeover! Check out the information below to find out what it is, what procedures are typically included, recovery information, and where you can find the best mommy makeover in the area.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery techniques that help to minimize the effects on a woman’s body after pregnancy and childbirth. A mommy makeover can be customized to the client’s specific wants and needs.
What Procedures are Typically Included?
There are several different procedures that can be done during a mommy makeover. The procedures tend to include:
A tummy tuck is a procedure that can be done to remove any undesired loose skin that has been created by pregnancy and childbirth. There are different tummy tuck procedures that can be done based on the desired results. The right procedure for you will depend on a number of factors. C-section scars can also be removed during a tummy tuck procedure, depending on the situation.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause a woman’s breasts to sag or lose tissue. A breast enhancement procedure can include either implants or a breast lift and can bring back the shape and size of a woman’s breasts. This procedure can even make breasts bigger and fuller than they were before pregnancy.
Fat can be removed from the body using liposuction. Liposuction is typically done alongside a tummy tuck as it can emphasize the waist and add definition to the abdomen. During a liposuction procedure, fat is removed from the body using specialized techniques.
How Long Will the Recovery Take?
Recovery usually takes multiple weeks but can take longer depending on the types of procedures done and other factors. It is also important that you do not do any heavy lifting or driving under certain medications. Our doctor and team will make sure to give you more specific instructions on these restrictions.
