Top Questions about the ‘Mommy Makeover’ Procedure

Giving birth is one of the most joyous life events a woman can experience. However, giving birth can also take a toll on a woman’s body! The inevitable weight gain that comes with pregnancy can lead to abdominal skin stretching, as well as noticeable changes to the breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks.

Fortunately, there is now a solution for restoring a woman’s body following pregnancy – the Mommy Makeover. Let’s learn more about this procedure.

  1. What exactly is a Mommy Makeover procedure? A Mommy Makeover procedure is a body contouring procedure that restores the look of a woman’s body following pregnancy. The procedure typically combines procedures-such as a breast lift, tummy tuck, or liposuction- in a single surgery to correct the appearance of loose, stubborn skin that cannot be corrected by diet and exercise alone. The surgery can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each individual patient.
  2. What are some advantages of this procedure? The main advantage of getting a Mommy Makeover is that it often combines several surgeries in one, so a patient can receive several desired improvements at one time. Also, having a combined surgical procedure is far more cost-effective than having one surgery done at a time. Finally, perhaps the biggest advantage of this surgery is that a mother looks and feels rejuvenated following the procedure.
  3. Are there any side effects associated with the surgery? Side effects depend on exactly what surgeries have been performed, though potential side effects may include redness, pain, and swelling. The recovery period will usually take up to 2 weeks.
  4. Is the Mommy Makeover procedure for me? Good candidates for a Mommy Makeover are women who are in good health, who have no pre-existing health conditions, and who do not smoke cigarettes. Patients are usually encouraged to wait at least 6 months after their last pregnancy (and after they have finished breast-feeding) undergoing breast surgery. Also, it is extremely important for women to have realistic expectations about what the surgery can do for them.
