One of the more popular procedures in plastic surgery, a mommy makeover is comprised of a combination of surgery techniques used to address a variety of issues women face after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Because it is comprised of specific body-contouring techniques, a mommy makeover can be customized to meet the needs of the individual.
Types of procedures
In terms of your breasts, you might choose to have implants to restore any lost volume or fullness. Additionally, if you are having difficulty regaining your taut, pre-baby tummy, you might choose to undergo abdominoplasty, otherwise known as a tummy tuck. The purpose of this procedure is to make the abdomen thin and firm. This is achieved via the removal of excess fat and skin from the lower and middle abdominal area to allow for the tightening of the fascia and muscles located in the abdominal wall.
Additional body-contouring procedures you can choose from include liposuction, a thigh lift, or a Brazilian butt lift. Many women also include an arm lift and breast reduction. Depending on your needs and your surgeon’s recommendations, you may undergo a combination of procedures on the same day, or they may be spread out over time.
How to prepare
Completing a professional consultation and having realistic expectations regarding your results are two of the most important things you can do before undergoing a mommy makeover. Additional things you can do to prepare include maintaining a healthy diet and engaging in daily exercise. In terms of your diet, you should eat plenty of protein, antioxidants, and vitamins. Finally, you should aim for a body mass index (BMI) that is no higher than 30.
Strong family support is also an essential part of a healthy recovery as there will be times you will need help so as not to strain yourself. Finally, you should follow your doctor’s recommendations regarding what you can and cannot do following your surgery.
