Having a baby is a magical, life changing experience – and of course it also means a lot of very dramatic changes for your body! If you are looking for a way to get your body back to its pre-baby condition, a Mommy Makeover can help!
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Exercise and good nutrition can go a long way toward keeping a new mom healthy – both physically and mentally. However, as you may have discovered, there is only so much exercise and a good diet can do. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can lead to lost volume in the breasts, a loss of tone and contour in different areas, and bits of fat that you just can’t seem to get rid of.
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures to deal with problem areas. The procedures are customized according to your wishes and your cosmetic surgery goals. You might choose liposuction to remove fat, a tummy tuck to get rid of excess fat and skin, and/or a breast lift or breast augmentation to perk up sagging breasts. In a Mommy Makeover the procedures can be performed simultaneously, which means you only have to recover from one procedure instead of different procedures spread out over time. You’ll also have less exposure to anesthesia.
Before considering a Mommy Makeover, you should be in good health and at a stable weight. It will take from 2 weeks to a month before you’ll be able to return to all of your regular activities, depending on which procedures you have done. You should plan on having help around the house for about a week after the procedure, and you should arrange to have someone stay with you for the first 24 hours after the procedure. You should be done having children and finished breastfeeding, and you should have lost most of your baby weight.
