One thing that women don’t often expect when it comes to having a child is the effects it can have on their body long-term. Despite the best diet and exercise regimens, it’s common to find that stubborn pockets of fat and sagging skin doesn’t respond the way you want to it. For this reason, a mommy makeover can be one of the best ways to restore your confidence and your body with a single recovery period. If you’re considering your options for a transformative surgery, here are some things to know about this option.

 

What a Mommy Makeover Can Do

The best thing about a mommy makeover is that it’s customizable to your unique goals and needs. The most common areas that are addressed during a mommy makeover are the breasts and stomach, but no two procedures are alike. Its focus is on removing stubborn fat and sagging skin that is the result of pregnancy and childbearing, but each woman’s body is different. Your plastic surgeon can help determine which combination of procedures will be most beneficial to you and your goals during a consultation.

 

Am I a Candidate?

Candidacy is very important when it comes to a mommy makeover, especially in regard to timing. You should be fully recovered from childbirth before opting for surgery, as well as no longer nursing. Additionally, if you have plans for more children or think you might change your mind in the future, you should explore some non-surgical options instead. Other factors still apply too– you should be in good overall health and maintaining a stable weight so that your procedure is safe and effective.

 

What to Expect From Recovery

It’s important to keep in mind that the mommy makeover comes with a long recovery period since you’ll be undergoing multiple procedures in one surgical session. This means you can expect at least one week of bed rest, with an additional few weeks of low activity. You’ll need to be sure and enlist help with tasks around the house, as well as care for children and pets. You’ll be prescribed medications for any discomfort and swelling, and you’ll see your plastic surgeon for follow-up appointments to make sure your recovery goes smoothly.
