Pregnancy is an amazing process, but the changes to your body can make you feel self-conscious. A mommy makeover targets your biggest post-pregnancy concerns to restore your confidence. This customized combination of procedures can restore the figure you had before pregnancy and even improve it.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures intended to undo the effects of pregnancy on your figure. While it commonly targets the abdomen and breasts, a mommy makeover can include almost any type of procedure. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Greenberg has extensive experience performing mommy makeovers. He will create a unique surgical plan that targets all your areas of concern.
There is no single mommy makeover procedure, although they usually have some things in common. Dr. Greenberg will discuss your treatment goals and develop a plan to address them.
Most mommy makeovers include a tummy tuck. This procedure uses an incision below the bikini line to tighten the skin, remove excess fat, and repair the abdominal muscles. The abdomen often causes the greatest frustration after pregnancy because the loose skin and separated muscles do not respond to diet or exercise.
You may have experienced significant changes to your breasts during and after pregnancy. In many cases, breasts enlarge during pregnancy, then lose volume or start to sag. A mommy makeover usually involves either a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast reduction. The end goal is to achieve youthful, shapely breasts.
Your mommy makeover can include other procedures to help you achieve your desired figure. Thigh and arm lifts can correct excess skin after pregnancy-related weight changes. Liposuction is often used during mommy makeovers to target stubborn pockets of fat. You may even choose to add a facial procedure. Your mommy makeover plan is for you and Dr. Greenberg to decide.
You have many nonsurgical options to add to your mommy makeover results. Treatments like laser resurfacing or microneedling can help undo pigmentation issues, acne scars, and other post-pregnancy skin changes.
Since each mommy makeover is unique, so is each recovery plan. Dr. Greenberg usually instructs people to plan for one to two weeks off from work. If your job requires strenuous physical activity, you may need more time to heal before returning to your normal tasks. You can resume most activities within four to six weeks.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
You might be a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you want to reclaim the body and the confidence you had before pregnancy. Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover are done growing their families. You can have more children after a mommy makeover, but another pregnancy will undo many of your results.
