It’s a question women ask after they give birth to their last child…should I get a mommy makeover? They want their bodies back, but they want to know exactly what is entailed in this thing they call a, “mommy makeover”.

To begin with, a mommy makeover will mean different things to different people. The mommy makeover you receive will depend on the procedures that you and your surgeon decide upon. Most women combine procedures for the ultimate results. The procedures that surgeons use in combination are:

Almost always, the tummy tuck and liposuction procedures are combined. They each accomplish very different things, but when used in unison, the ultimate result is amazing. The tummy tuck takes care of the excess, sagging skin in the abdominal area, while the liposuction contours the body in the areas where stubborn fat, the kind that ignores dieting and exercise, is removed through a vacuum mechanism. Together, they make the perfect “marriage”.

Now, the breasts…poor things! Pregnancy does a number on them causing them to temporarily enlarge, only to ultimately deflate. Breast lift to the rescue! A breast lift repositions the nipple, placing it on a higher plane, therefore, pointing them forward again. If desired, an augmentation can also be done to add fullness and proportion.

What Is Mommy Makeover Recovery Like?

Depending on the extent of your procedure, it will take several weeks to recover from a mommy makeover. Your doctor will unquestionably limit your activities, so it will be necessary to enlist family and friends to help during this time frame.
Some things you may experience during the healing process are:

  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Tightness
  • Swelling
  • Discomfort

As time goes by, and the healing process continues, you will begin to see the transformation that you were hoping for. A few months may need to pass before the ultimate result is seen, but most women emphatically agree that it was well worth the wait.
