Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding are amazing life experiences, but they can have lasting effects on a woman’s body. During pregnancy, skin and muscles stretch and may stay lax. Breastfeeding can permanently alter the shape and size of a woman’s breasts. In the past, these changes were an inevitable part of having a family. Post-pregnancy, many women find that there is a limit to the improvement they can make with traditional, non-surgical methods
If traditional diet and exercise have failed to bring about the change you seek after having babies, then mommy makeover plastic surgery may help you achieve your best post-baby body.
What is Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery?
A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures that address the breasts, hips and stomach—the areas most affected after childbirth. Typically, it refers to a combination tummy tuck and breast lift, and may include liposuction. The breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation, to restore breast volume that is lost after breastfeeding. Liposuction can target stubborn areas of fat on your waist, belly, or hips.
If you’re interested in mommy makeover surgery, you should be aware that while liposuction, breast lift, and breast augmentation are relatively quick-recovery procedures, a tummy tuck has a longer recovery. Also, any time you combine multiple procedures into a single surgical session it can affect recovery time. You can find out if you’re a good candidate for a mommy makeover by contacting our office for a consultation.
You will need to plan for a two-week recovery following a mommy makeover. During your recovery, you will need to have help with childcare and household chores. However, a few weeks after your surgery you will be back to your normal routine, with one big difference: a body with more youthful breasts and a flatter tummy!
