The emotional and physical toll that pregnancy and breastfeeding can have on a woman’s body can sometimes make it difficult to bounce back fully. Sometimes no matter how much you diet and exercise after giving birth, certain areas of your body may not go back to how they were before pregnancy. Every woman wants to look and feel her best, and the Mommy Makeover is an excellent solution for mothers. The procedure can help you look and feel like you again. It can also help boost your confidence in your body. The Mommy Makeover includes a combination of a breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and or liposuction.
For some women, the physical effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are permanent. While having children is a fantastic experience, every mother deserves to feel like herself again. Below are some of the problems that our patients face, which can be addressed by a Mommy Makeover.
If you are interested in getting the Mommy Makeover, contact our office today to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors. Every procedure begins with a consultation with one of the clinic’s board-certified plastic surgeons. It’s important to let them know what your expectations are at this appointment. This will help them understand what procedure may be right for you. They can provide feedback and help manage your expectations. While a Mommy Makeover may feel overwhelming, the surgeon can ease your fears and offer you all of the information you need to make your decisions.

Before the procedure, it’s essential to plan. Depending on the combination of surgeries, you’ll need weeks of recovery time. If your children are still small, you’ll need to find someone who can help you care for them while you are recovering. If you have infants or small children, you will not be able to pick them up.
Depending on what treatment you get, the procedure time and recovery will be different. Usually, women will get a combination of liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast lift or breast augmentation. Liposuction can help contour your body and remove excess fat. A tummy tuck can remove any excess skin and tighten up your stomach muscles. Lastly, breast augmentation or lift can bring volume back to your chest, making it look fuller. The combination of procedures can bring your body as close as possible to your pre-baby body.
You’ll undergo local or general anesthesia as it is a surgery, but you should be able to go home within the same day or 24 hours. After the procedure and medical clearance, you will able to go home. You will need someone to drive you home that day and be sure to rest as much as possible. It’s important to follow doctor’s orders by taking all prescribed medications, resting, and attending follow up appointments.
After your procedures, you will need to take time to rest and heal. You will have bandages, compression garments, and surgical drains. You may experience some pain, but it will not last very long. Also, you should take any prescribed pain medication to help with any residual pain.
You should also expect some bruising and swelling. This is entirely normal and should go away within three weeks. However, complete recovery can take up to six months as everything settles. In addition, you will have some initial scarring. The first six to eight weeks, your incisions will be red as your body starts to heal. After this, the scars will become less red, thinner, and will fade away within a year and a half.
You will need to take things slowly in terms of getting back to your routine. It would be best if you focused on resting and doing minimal physical activity for the first few weeks. Avoid reaching above your shoulders as this can interrupt the healing process for your breasts. Keep your elbows close to your body, and avoid moving your shoulders as much as possible. You will also need to take care of your stomach area and refrain from bending at the waist.
Each patient is unique in their recovery process. It will take roughly three months to feel back to yourself again. Most patients can get back to their regular daily routines within a few weeks. Slowly ease back into work and home life. It’s better to take things slower in order to heal rather than disrupt the healing process fully.
While the results of the Mommy Makeover can take weeks to see, your body will be fully transformed into a new you! You will feel more self-confident, and it will boost your self-esteem. Having the body, you have always felt comfortable in can be achieved through a Mommy Makeover.
