The Mommy Makeover – Reclaiming Your Body after Childbirth

SCROLL

What could be more miraculous than giving birth?  Unfortunately, pregnancy and breastfeeding typically result in undesirable changes to a woman’s figure. It’s only natural to fantasize about reclaiming your pre-baby body.

The good news is that such dreams can become a reality with mommy makeover surgery, which typically includes a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, and liposuction. Dysport® and various injectable fillers are sometimes added. Of course, you will only get what you need. By getting your mommy makeover procedures completed together, you will gain significant cost savings and reduction in recovery time.

If you’re considering the benefits of a mommy makeover, you’re not alone. In fact, young mothers comprise the largest segment of people having reconstructive surgery.

What You Need to Know

  • Wait for Complete Post-Partum Recovery— You may have seen photos of young celebrity mothers with perfect looking physiques taken only a few months after giving birth. Of course, such pictures are usually photoshopped. In reality, women wanting a mommy makeover need to wait at least six months after childbirth before surgery is advisable.
  • Return to a Healthy Weight with Diet and Exercise— If you maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen after childbirth, you will normally get back to your pre- pregnancy weight.

A tummy tuck will remove excess skin as well as resistant abdominal fat. Understand, however, that while this procedure will tighten and sculpt your body, it isn’t a substitute for weight loss. The same applies to liposuction, a body contouring procedure that eliminates fatty deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise. Again, for best results, a patient needs to be at a healthy weight before surgery.

  • You Will Need Six Months after Weaning your baby for Breast Surgery— Your breasts need time to recover after weaning. So, if you stop breastfeeding your child at four months, for example, you should postpone any breast augmentation surgery until ten months after giving birth. Only then can your surgeon determine the specific incision locations for optimal results.
  • Recovery– After any surgery, slight discomfort or pain at incision sites is to be expected. This, however, is only temporary and easily controlled with prescription medicine. Within a few days, initial swelling will abate, and you’ll begin to see the benefits of your procedures—including an improved figure and firmer breasts. With two to four weeks, your body will fully recover.

Your beauty reclaimed, you can move forward with renewed confidence!
