The mommy makeover, or mommy surgery, is a highly tailored surgery that usually involves a tummy tuck and breast procedure. However, since every mommy is unique, every mommy makeover is customized. This popular post-partum procedure can also include a thigh lift, butt augmentation, upper arm lift, and liposuction in various areas. Pregnancy and childbirth, followed by weight loss after childbirth, can do a number on your body. Few moms have the time to commit to hours in the gym to restore their body—and even if they did, the stretched and saggy skin post-pregnancy cannot be addressed with diet and exercise alone.
If you’re considering a mommy makeover, ask yourself what you’d like to change. There are a number of body shaping and contouring procedures available at Neaman Plastic Surgery.
Mommy makeovers consist of combined procedures. A tummy tuck and breast augmentation is one of the most popular pairings. When you combine procedures, you can enjoy a single operation, lower costs (anesthesia and facility fees are also combined), and reduced recovery time.
Breast rejuvenation as part of your mommy makeover might include a breast lift, breast augmentation (breast implants), or a breast reduction. However, breast rejuvenation should only be considered after a mom is entirely finished nursing. After milk production, breasts tend to deflate, but they can be rejuvenated with a number of breast procedures.
The abdomen is another challenging area to restore after childbirth. However, with liposuction and a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), moms can get back their pre-pregnancy taut tummy. As a bonus, the removal of excess skin can also remove stretch marks. Rectus diastasis, the separation of the ab muscles due to pregnancy, can also be repaired during a tummy tuck.
A body lift with circumferential abdominoplasty can lift the buttocks and lateral thighs as well as the belly. Every mom gains and carries pregnancy weight in different ways, and a circumferential abdominoplasty can rejuvenate the lower body if that’s your trouble zone.
Mommy makeovers can include extensive surgeries, but the procedure is always outpatient. Recovery time will vary depending on the mom and the types of procedures, but most patients return to mild activities of daily living in 2 – 3 weeks.
Three butt rejuvenation procedures are available including the Brazilian Butt Lift (which injects your own fat into the buttocks), circumferential abdominoplasty with butt augmentation (a tummy tuck with butt implants), and buttock implants. You can find out more about these procedures during a consultation.
A mommy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to improve the effects that pregnancy and childbirth can produce in a woman’s body.
A mommy makeover usually involves both a breast procedure as well as a tummy tuck. This can typically include any combination of breast surgery, including breast lift or reduction or possibly augmentation, as well as abdominoplasty, liposuction, belt lipectomy, body lift, and other body contouring procedures.
Mommy makeovers should be saved for when you are finished having biological children. Otherwise, pregnancy can complicate surgical results.
Mommy makeovers involve multiple serious surgeries. However, it’s understandable that moms can’t really take much time off. Most patients are able to return to driving in one week and can walk five miles by two weeks. Recovery times vary, and moms should plan to have plenty of help during the first month post-surgery.
Mommy makeovers can last for several years. However, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and advanced age can all lead to pockets of fat and sagging skin.
Neaman Plastic Surgery offers Care Credit, a special health-based credit card exclusively for medical procedures.
The recovery from mommy makeover surgery is quite varied. Some patients are young and bounce back, others are older and take longer to recover. For an “average” mommy makeover, patients can usually drive by one week, walk five miles on a flat surface by two weeks, and run by four weeks.
