Bringing a new life into the world is a truly magical experience that can also change the way your body looks in ways that might be less than ideal. For those problem areas that can’t always be corrected with diet and exercise alone, a Mommy Makeover is the perfect way to restore that body and give you the confidence you deserve. Richmond Plastic Surgeons offers Mommy Makeovers for women in Richmond, Midlothian and surrounding areas of Virginia.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy and childbirth bring with them hormonal changes and extra weight that can leave a lasting impact on any body. Our Mommy Makeover offers a customized combination of procedures that will rejuvenate your body and breasts, restoring their contoured and shapely appearance. The most common goals of a Mommy Makeover are:
Restoring the shape and fullness of your breasts and body during a single surgical appointment
Minimizing recovery time
Enhancing and improving your natural breast size
What are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
At Richmond Plastic Surgeons, we’ll work with you to restore your body to the proportions and shape you enjoyed before becoming pregnant. Our board-certified plastic surgeons will recommend a combination of procedures, specifically tailored to your dreams and desire, correcting things like:
Stretched, sagging skin
Breasts that droop or have lost their volume
Stretched abdominal muscles
Stubborn fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise
Am I the Ideal Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
It’s recommended that you wait until you’ve had your last child before considering a Mommy Makeover, to eliminate the potential need for future revisions.
You should also spend six months to one year toning your body through diet and exercise.
Our Richmond Mommy Makeover can require some downtime, so be prepared to have a helper for your children, day-to-day activities, and general care.
What Should I Do Before My Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeovers work by finding the perfect combination of procedures to meet your goals. We’ll accomplish this through personal consultation, wherein one one of our board-certified surgeons will guide you through the entire process.
We’ll listen to your concerns about your body, considering the effects of pregnancy and any issues you experienced beforehand, such as breast size and so forth. We’ll then work closely with you to develop a procedural plan that brings you the best balance of outcomes, so you can enjoy your body for the rest of your life.
What Should I Expect on The Day of My Mommy Makeover?
Your Mommy Makeover will be based on a surgical plan that may be spread out over one or more appointments and procedures. This depends on the extent of your plan, which will of course be tailored to your specific goals and desires.
Our surgeons will recommend procedures that best suit your lifestyle, personal desires, budget, and schedule. The most popular procedures for a Mommy Makeover are:
The duration of your Mommy Makeover will depend on the personal surgical plan that you and your surgeon will develop together. During your consultation, we’ll explain our recommendations in detail, answering any questions you have, so you understand every part of the process. We’ll guide you through the exact procedures that will bring your body in line with your personal goals.
What Can I Expect After My Mommy Makeover?
Recovering from a Mommy Makeover takes time, and our surgeons will be acutely aware of your schedule and personal needs.
We’ll combine procedures whenever possible, so as to minimize the overall recovery period. We’ll also work closely with you to spread out the procedures over the course of six to 12 months, in a way that optimizes your ability to live your life to the fullest.
Will My Mommy Makeover Leave Any Scars?
While just about any type surgery leaves at least some scarring, the board-certified surgeons at Richmond Plastic Surgeons do everything they can to place any incisions in areas where scars will be far less noticeable (with the exception of a tummy tuck).
Your scars will have a pinkish appearance at first, which fades over the next 12 months, but are unlikely to disappear completely.
Excellent news! You’ll enjoy the results of your Mommy Makeover right after the surgery. We take pride in our ability to give our patients an immediate boost in their body confidence, motivating you to continue living a healthy, active lifestyle with your family.
Are There Any Possible Complications of a Mommy Makeover?
All surgeries carry a certain degree of risk associated with general anesthesia. Our expert surgeons employ the latest procedures and utilize the full breadth of their knowledge and experience to minimize things like bleeding, infection, irregularities, and other unwanted side effects.
How Long Will the Results of My Mommy Makeover Last?
With proper diet and exercise, you can maintain the results of your Mommy Makeover for many years. Do note that aging, pregnancy, and other medical conditions may impact and change your body over time.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost in Richmond?
Mommy Makeovers are not covered by medical insurance. We’ll provide you with an accurate cost after your consultation, and will explain our various payment options, including the financing that is available through CareCredit®.
