Having a baby is a blessing, but that’s not necessarily the case with the toll childbirth takes on your body. Despite working out and eating healthy, many women find that diet and exercise simply aren’t enough to get back their pre-pregnancy figures. When this is the case, it’s time to consider cosmetic procedures like the mommy makeover to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
What Is The Mommy Makeover?
It’s whatever you want it to be! The great thing about the mommy makeover is that it’s fully customizable according to your aesthetic needs. With a mommy makeover, multiple procedures can be combined into one, making it both more convenient and cost effective.
During a consultation with your surgeon, you will able to discuss your areas of concern so he or she can personalize your own mommy makeover with today’s most effective procedures, successfully addressing each of your cosmetic goals.
What Are Some Of The Most Common Areas That Are Targeted?
After breastfeeding, it’s common for the breasts to appear more saggy and deflated, which leaves many new mothers feeling insecure.
Solution: A breast augmentation will give the breasts a more rounded, fuller appearance. Some patients also choose to pair an augmentation with a breast lift to restore the perkiness and youthful contour of their breasts.
For many new mothers, attempting to sculpt and tone their bodies through diet and exercise doesn’t seem to bring about the results they were striving for.
Solution: Liposuction is an effective solution to contour the body by slimming down those areas that feel resistant to diet and exercise.
After pregnancy, many women notice a pocket of stubborn fat protruding in the lower abdominal. In many cases, there is also excess skin in the area which is understandably a source of insecurity for these new mothers.
Solution: A tummy tuck is an ideal solution for women who are already within their desired weight range. This procedure will create a flattering toned appearance of the abdominals by removing the pesky fat and excess skin that are lingering in the area.
When Is The Best Time For A Mommy Makeover?
Since each woman’s recovery after childbirth differs, there is no precise recommended time to undergo cosmetic procedures. In other words, each patient’s recovery must be evaluated individually. Depending on each individual, it could be required to wait anywhere between 6 to 12 months after giving birth to schedule a mommy makeover.
Take a look at our quick checklist below to help determine if you’re ready to get the results you’ve been waiting for:
- Are you done with breastfeeding? – Doctors recommend waiting at least 3 months after you’ve weaned your child off of breast milk to allow your breasts to return to their normal size.
- Have you already reached your target weight? – Candidates for a tummy tuck must already be within 10-15 pounds of their target weight. If not, we recommend finishing up dieting and exercising before you contact your surgeon.
- Are you done having children? – Future pregnancies may require additional procedures. Procedures like a breast enhancement can affect breastfeeding, so it’s advisable to hold off on getting your mommy makeover until you’re finished with childbirth.
