A Mommy Makeover is a term used to refer to a combination of cosmetic surgery techniques. The purpose is to address the changes your body underwent as part of the pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding experience.
Bringing children into the world is a truly phenomenal feat, but your body pays a price for creating new life. Most women find themselves fundamentally changed by motherhood, both emotionally and physically. Mommy Makeovers help you address the physical changes.
Just as no two mothers are exactly alike, your Mommy Makeover is also unique and designed to align with your individual treatment needs and goals.
Perhaps the most important part of a Mommy Makeover is the consultation process. You sit down with your practitioner to discuss what you hope to achieve through your treatment and explore various options and likely results.
The best way to feel great about your end result is to go into the process with a clear understanding of what to expect. Consultations are never rushed, and there is always time for you to ask questions or express concerns.
Some of the treatments available as part of a Mommy Makeover include:
You can also explore medical aesthetics treatments like skin tightening and laser therapy as part of your overall makeover experience.
If you’re considering a Mommy Makeover, it’s essential to think about timing. Waiting until you’ve welcomed your last child into the family is the best way to make the most of your Mommy Makeover.
Giving your body a chance to bounce back after your last pregnancy is also essential. You should wait at least six weeks after giving birth, and if you breastfeed, wait for six weeks after you stop breastfeeding.
A pregnancy after a Mommy Makeover will almost certainly alter your results, so spend some time thinking about your family planning goals as you explore a Mommy Makeover. For many women, these procedures are a long-anticipated reward.
