What’s included in a mommy makeover?
Various procedures can be included in a mommy makeover. The most common procedures include a breast augmentation or lift, liposuction and skin tightening, tummy tuck, and/or a Brazilian butt lift (BBL). A BBL alters the shape and size of your buttock through removal of fat where you don’t want it and placing it into the butt. Liposuction removes excess fat deposits and Renuvion tightens skin, and a tummy tuck surgically removes excess skin and fat. These procedures combined can give your body a more youthful appearance and reverse the physical changes that pregnancy and childbirth may have caused.
Are there any risks? Procedure Length and Recovery
A mommy makeover is a relatively safe procedure. Procedure length and recovery vary depending on what procedures you choose to get. One benefit of a mommy makeover is that it’s a set of procedures, meaning you will get them all done at the same time. In general, a majority of mommy makeovers take several hours. For safety and comfort, general anesthesia is commonly used.
A typical recovery time for a mommy makeover is 4 to 6 weeks. Your cosmetic surgeon may require you to rest at home for one week. This is something to keep in mind if you have childcare obligations at the time of surgery. The results of a mommy makeover will also take 4 to 6 weeks to appear. This is because in the weeks following your surgery, your breasts and abdomen may be swollen.
A mommy makeover can help you gain confidence in your post-pregnancy body and live life to the fullest. If you are considering a mommy makeover, it is best to consult your doctor first before making any decisions.
