This holiday season, while you’re busy thinking of making the holidays special for friends and family, and your children, don’t forget about yourself.
As a mother, you know what physical changes and stress pregnancy and childbirth can cause. While your children are already a wonderful gift, doing something special, just for you. A mommy makeover provides the self care and rejuvenation you deserve--it’s the holiday gift for yourself you deserve.
The mommy makeover procedure is extremely popular for women who have had children and want to restore their confidence and pre-pregnancy physique.
This procedure is customized to your needs. In one surgical session, two or more procedures are combined to restore your body back to a tighter, firmer and more pleasing shape. Women love the mommy makeover because it prevents the need to go under anesthesia multiple times, and it usually reduces the amount of time spent recovering.
Exercise and a healthy diet can only go so far when it comes to bouncing back after childbirth and pregnancy. That’s why the mommy makeover was created--to give your back yourself again after having children.
What is included in a mommy makeover?
Breasts and the abdominal area are usually the focus when it comes to a mommy makeover, but other procedures are often included as well. Depending on your needs and vision for your physique, your mommy makeover may include a number of procedures besides the breasts and abdomen.
Common areas that are enhanced or sculpted during a mommy makeover, besides the breasts and tummy area are as follows. This is not a complete list. Your surgeon will consult with you to determine exactly which areas you would like to address and improve, and design a treatment plan that maps out exactly which procedures will be included as a part of your mommy makeover:
- thighs, hips and buttocks (liposuction is performed to sculpt and contour these areas)
- pigment changes or new wrinkles in the face (a brow lift, facelift, or non-invasive procedures such as laser treatments are used to smooth, enhance and renew)
- a C-section scar (the scar can be remodeled and made smaller using different techniques)
- vaginal and labia area (vaginal rejuvenation and/or labiaplasty is done to enhance, beautify and rejuvenate the area).
Recovery and results after a mommy makeover
Most patients can return to work and gentle exercise after breast surgery, liposuction or labiaplasty in one week. A tummy tuck requires about two weeks of downtime before returning back to work.
As swelling diminishes and your breasts fully settle, by about 3-6 months after surgery, you will be completely healed and able to fully enjoy your final results. You can step out confidently and feel like the best version of yourself again with your new, more youthful and beautiful breasts, a tighter tummy and contoured waist, smoother and more contoured lines, and a rejuvenated, restored appearance.
