A mommy makeover is a comprehensive body contouring procedure that has gained popularity over the last couple of years among women of all ages. Although it is called a “mommy makeover”, it is actually an appropriate treatment for any woman who would like to eliminate stubborn fat, loose skin and other signs of aging that develop over the years. Since there are so many possibilities when it comes to the mommy makeover procedure, patients often ask the following questions about the treatment.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Involve?
The mommy makeover procedure is highly customizable, and the techniques involved will largely depend on your personal treatment goals. It is often a combination of multiple body contouring techniques, such as:
If you have any cosmetic concerns that cannot be addressed with the treatments above, it is likely that additional treatments can be added to your procedure to ensure that all of your treatment goals are met.
What Concerns Can A Mommy Makeover Address?
Most patients choose to have a mommy makeover to correct the changes that occur in the body throughout and after pregnancy. Many women notice sagging skin, stubborn pockets of fat, and more. Even women who haven’t experienced pregnancy can develop these changes, which is why this treatment is becoming so popular. Patients often enjoy restored contours, lifted breasts, a slimmer figure, and improved self-confidence thanks to their mommy makeover.
How Long is Recovery After a Mommy Makeover?
Just like the treatment, recovery from a mommy makeover will vary depending on the techniques involved. Generally, patients take about two to three weeks off of work. You should also avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for at least six weeks to ensure that the body recovers properly following surgery.
Am I A Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
