Mommy Makeover and You
Yes, you love your children. But you may not love what has happened to your body after giving birth to those little darlings. Many women notice changes in the breasts, abdomen, wait, genitalia and buttocks post-pregnancy. And more and more are choosing a Mommy Makeover to freshen their bodies up after giving birth.
A Mommy Makeover is usually performed as a single stage procedure. However, many techniques are used to perform a Mommy Makeover. If you’re considering one, you’ll need to tell your plastic surgeon which areas you want addressed and which procedures you’re interested in. These can include breast augmentation, breast lift, buttock augmentation, Liposuction, Tummy Tuck and vaginal rejuvenation.
As a rule, a Mommy Makeover is an inpatient procedure and usually takes 4-8 hours. The recovery time is only 2-3 weeks. However, you need to let your body heal after giving birth for at least six months before you should have a Mommy Makeover. You also can’t breastfeed so your plastic surgeon will understand the true size and nature of your breasts. If you’re planning on having more children, your Mommy Makeover should wait.
One of the most important decisions about your Mommy Makeover is choosing the right surgeon. A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is always best, because plastic surgery is a highly complex specialty. You want a surgeon with the skills, training, expertise and experience to safely and skillfully perform these procedures.
