What is a Mommy Makeover?
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Steckler regularly consults with women who desire to get their pre-pregnancy physique back. While childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for a woman, it almost always will alter the shape of various body parts — and can leave one feeling frustrated and uncomfortable in their skin. The most exciting news is that it's possible to once again attain a slim and taut appearance with the help of the mommy makeover at Mississippi Center for Plastic Surgery. This surgery uses a combination of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to reshape both the upper body (arms and breasts) and lower body (such as the tummy) — basically, any body part affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc. can be corrected. In addition, nonsurgical remedies can be incorporated to repair surface irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation and discoloration, from the quick stretching and fluctuation of the skin during pregnancy. For more information, contact our Ridgeland, MS office to schedule a consultation.
What Can I Expect from A Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a custom surgery, tailored for you based on the specific body areas you want reshaped. Many procedures can be considered together — the most popular treatments are breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. The mommy makeover surgeries are performed using general anesthesia and last 3 – 7 hours depending on the complexity. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical methods, such as an injection or a laser treatment, to soften facial lines and diminish surface imperfections. After your procedure, you will start your recovery at home with rest and proper aftercare. The overall recovery is generally a gradual process. Walking will be difficult the first week or so, and a carefully followed, home healing protocol will be needed to ensure your incisions heal properly. Most patients find the healing phase lasts about six months. Most patients are able to get back to a normal routine within several weeks, however. Working out should be held off for around two months.
