Pregnancy and breastfeeding can bring about many changes to your body that may make you feel dissatisfied or self-conscious. If you struggle with excess skin and fat or loss of volume in areas such as the breasts and face, a customized mommy makeover at Winter Park Plastic Surgery may be right for you.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a rejuvenating treatment that combines several cosmetic procedures to help restore your pre-baby body. A mommy makeover can address concerns such as breast sagging, breast volume, excess fat, and loose skin. A mommy makeover can include the following:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Body lift
- Buttock lift
- Arm lift
- Dermal fillers
- Chemical peels
Dr. Scott Greenberg will help determine which treatments are best for you based on your goals and desired results.
What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
One of the great things about a mommy makeover is that it is customized to fit your goals. A mommy makeover not only restores and enhances your figure but also your confidence. A mommy makeover can enhance your cleavage, making it perkier and fuller. It can also correct excess fat or skin in areas such as the abdomen and hips. You can also give your skin a youthful and plump look by utilizing dermal fillers and chemical peels.
Having multiple procedures done together as part of a mommy makeover can save you time and expense. Combining surgeries often reduces overall recovery time.
How Long is Recovery From a Mommy Makeover?
Recovery from a mommy makeover will depend on the procedures you receive. Dr. Greenberg will give you a detailed recovery plan and timeline, but you can expect to take one to two weeks off work. During your recovery, you will not be able to lift heavy objects, so you will need some help around the house, especially if you have young children.
Depending on your treatment, you may need to wear a compression garment to aid your recovery. It may take four to six weeks to return to your regular routine.
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
If you struggle with self-confidence after pregnancy or breastfeeding and want to restore your pre-baby body, you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. Candidates for a mommy makeover should be in good health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations of what treatment can do for them.
You may not be a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you plan to have more children after treatment or lose a significant amount of weight. Candidates should wait six months to a year after their last pregnancy to have a mommy makeover.
