Mommy Makeover procedures give mothers new hope for restoring their bodies to their pre-pregnancy shape. At Plastic Surgery of Palm Beach, we work closely with women who want to address problem areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. Here are some interesting Mommy Makeover facts that may surprise you.
No Such Thing as “One Size Fits All”
Your Mommy Makeover is customized to your cosmetic needs, whether you want to reduce wrinkles on your face, flatten your midsection or perk up your breasts. When you meet with our plastic surgeon, you learn about the most common procedures that are included with a Mommy Makeover, such as:
- Liposuction for pockets of stubborn fat
- Tummy tuck to tone and tighten the abdominal area
- Breast surgery, such as breast augmentation to add volume and breast lift to reduce sagging
- Cellulite treatment
- Dermal fillers and injectables for lines and wrinkles
These are just some of the procedures that may be part of your Mommy Makeover package.
Surgery? Maybe Not
Not every woman wants to have surgery after giving birth, so we offer several non-surgical options for sculpting your body.
- CoolSculpting® freezes fat cells to break them down
- VelaShape® combines fat reduction and cellulite treatment
No Need to Rush
We recommend that you wait at least one year after having your last child before considering a Mommy Makeover. The first year is when your body will naturally shed excess fat and when you should increase your workouts to build muscle. Often, the body corrects issues without surgical intervention. Waiting until you have your last child is also important. Any subsequent pregnancies will change your breasts and body, and you may need secondary procedures to address new problem areas.
Scheduling Around You
A Mommy Makeover typically involves several procedures that do require some downtime. We can schedule your procedures in several ways. First, many procedures can be combined into a single surgical appointment. By doing this, you have fewer periods of downtime over the course of your Mommy Makeover treatment. Second, you have the option to have a procedure and heal completely before having the next recommended procedure. This approach means that your total Mommy Makeover package takes more time, but your downtime after each procedure is minimized.
A Healthy Lifestyle is Still Important
A Mommy Makeover restores your body and gives you immediate results, but how long the results last is up to you. Continue with a healthy lifestyle of eating nutritious foods and exercising, and you will enjoy your new body for many years.
