A mommy makeover involves a combination of different surgeries that depend on what you want from your makeover. The combination of the procedures allows you to limit the number of surgeries you have to get in order to achieve your desired results. A mommy makeover can be one surgery with multiple different procedures that are described below.
Many people undergo this procedure after pregnancy. But how long should you wait before undergoing an extensive procedure like this?
How Long Should I Wait After Pregnancy to Get a Mommy Makeover?
Generally speaking, you should wait at least six months after pregnancy to consider getting a mommy makeover. This gives your body time to thoroughly heal from the changes brought on by pregnancy and childbirth.
However, the time needed for your body to recover may vary greatly depending on your unique personal circumstances. Because of this, it is crucial to speak with your doctor. They will provide you with an expert’s opinion on when your body will be ready for a procedure like a mommy makeover.
What Treatments Are Performed During a Mommy Makeover?
The treatments that are performed vary depending on your current health and what your goals are for the procedure. However, here are some that are commonly performed:
Breast Augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that enhances your breasts’ shape, size, and contour. This procedure is performed by inserting silicone or saline implants into the breast region.
This cosmetic procedure elevates the breasts by moving the breast tissue higher up the chest wall. Sometimes, the areola is also moved up to make the changes look and feel natural.
Liposuction removes fat from your body using suction by targeting fat deposits that may be present. Common areas for liposuction include the arms, abdomen/love handle area, and legs.
The tummy tuck procedure strengthens the core by removing excess skin from the abdominal area and tightening any stretched or weak muscles. This leaves you with a more stable core that can help with urinary incontinence and bladder control. A tummy tuck can also help remove scars and tighten lax muscles if you had a C-section.
