Physical changes that occur during pregnancy can produce permanent effects on the overall shape and tone of your body. The skin may stretch or sag, breasts may lose volume or shape, and pockets of fat may persist, despite your efforts with diet and exercise.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
The term “mommy makeover” is used to describe a combination of body contouring and breast enhancement procedures that are all performed in the same surgery for maximum results and minimal recovery time.
The goal of a mommy makeover is to reverse some of the side effects of childbearing. Many women elect mommy makeovers to:
- Restore lost breast volume
- Raise or firm sagging breasts
- Tighten and tone the abdomen
- Remove pockets of excess fat
Mommy Makeover Options
One of the best things about a mommy makeover is that the options are virtually endless. A mommy makeover can be customized to target your problem areas. Through a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures, a mommy makeover can turn back time, and help restore your pre-baby body.
Your Mommy Makeover may include:
The Mommy Makeover Procedure
Because a mommy makeover procedure is tailored to fit your needs, the details of surgery vary greatly among patients. The length of your surgery and the anesthesia used will depend on your cosmetic goals.
During surgery, Dr. Mouchantat will use surgical techniques that reshape, tighten and tone the body. Excess fat deposits will be removed to create a more slender and elegant body profile, while breast enhancement techniques will be used to lift and restore volume to the breasts. Following surgery, all incisions will be sutured and surgical dressings will be applied.
Mommy Makeover Aftercare
The length of your recovery will depend on the number of procedures performed during your mommy makeover. Immediately following surgery, swelling and bruising will obscure your results. It is likely that you will need to wear compression garments for several weeks to minimize swelling and promote total body healing.
The final outcome of your mommy makeover will become apparent as swelling and bruising gradually subside over the course of several weeks. Mobility may be limited for several days, but most normal activities, including work, may be resumed within one to two weeks. More strenuous activities, such as exercise, may be restricted for several weeks. Any scars present following your surgery will begin to fade and flatten gradually over several months.
