Mommy Makeovers and You

Motherhood is one of life’s greatest joys, but the experience of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and the stress of raising kids can have a profound effect on the body.

For moms seeking to turn back the clock on the physical impact of motherhood, a series of procedures commonly known as a “mommy makeover” may be just the solution. But what goes into a mommy makeover, and is it right for you?

The Procedures

Though the exact procedures involved can vary, a mommy makeover usually includes several body contouring procedures designed to address the effects of pregnancy and its aftermath. These procedures are typically grouped together into a single session, and can include:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift
  • Breast Reduction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Circumferential Abdominoplasty
  • Liposuction

Of course, the extent or number of procedures will vary from case to case based on need and the recommendation of your physician.

What to Consider

While a consultation with a surgeon will be essential in determining what course of action may be right for you, here are a few things to consider when it comes to a mommy makeover:

  1. Due to the extent of the surgeries involved, procedures of this kind are performed on an outpatient basis. Recovery can take several weeks in some cases, so it will be important to have a clear schedule and plenty of help with daily needs in the days after surgery.
  2. Results will not be immediate. Swelling can last for between six months to a year, so it will be some time before you can fully appreciate the effects of the procedure on your body.
  3. Exercise is forbidden in the first six weeks following the procedure. After that, it is recommended to maintain a healthy exercise routine to make the most of your results and stay in good overall health.
  4. As with any major surgery, a mommy makeover is for non-smokers only. Smoking decreases circulation and can delay healing time, and greatly increases the chance for serious complications. No smoking for at least six weeks before surgery, and at no time during the recovery process.
  5. After the healing process is complete, be ready for a new, more confident you!
