Restore Your Body & Your Confidence
In addition to your new precious bundle of joy, pregnancy can bring with it many undesired physical changes. From weight gain to sagging skin, your body may seem foreign to you after you’ve had a baby. A growing number of new moms are choosing to combat these changes and undergo cosmetic surgery after childbirth.
Consisting of a personalized combination of procedures, a “mommy makeover” may be just what the doctor ordered. Designed to help you look and feel your best after pregnancy, a mommy makeover can help restore or improve your body so you can enjoy time with your kids without letting your appearance get in the way.
Is a Mommy Makeover Right for You?
As your weight fluctuates during pregnancy, your skin can become loose and stubborn pockets of fat can persist long after childbirth, despite a regular diet and exercise routine. A mommy makeover is designed to help you reclaim your figure and boost your confidence so can you focus on what’s important: your family.
Consider a mommy makeover if you:
- Are healthy and have a stable weight
- Are dissatisfied with post-pregnancy changes to your body
- Have realistic goals and expectations
A mommy makeover can improve several areas of the body in one operation. Through various surgical techniques, a mommy makeover can restore youthfulness, reduce excess fat, and enhance breast volume and perkiness, as well as improve self-confidence and promote physical and emotional wellness.
A mommy makeover may not be for everyone; especially women who desire more children—final results may be compromised if you have more children. During your consultation, we can help you determine if a mommy makeover is the right choice for achieving your goals.
Your Mommy Makeover at Boston Plastic Surgery
A mommy makeover combines one or more procedures that are tailored to your unique needs. The most common procedures include:
- Tummy Tuck surgery, which is designed to slim and sculpt the abdomen.
- Breast augmentation or breast lift surgeries, which can restore breast volume and perkiness through the insertion of saline or silicone implants.
- Liposuction, which can eliminate localized deposits of fat from multiple areas of the body.
A mommy makeover can be performed in a single surgery or over a period of time, depending on your desired outcome and which procedures you choose.
After Your Surgery
The recovery time for a mommy makeover varies, but we strive to have you back on your feet and ready to pick up your kids as soon as possible. After surgery, you’ll have to take it easy and rest for the first few days of recovery, as well as wear specialized support and compression garments to minimize swelling and encourage proper healing.
The final results of your mommy makeover will become gradually apparent over several weeks to several months as swelling begins to subside. Most mothers are able to resume normal activities—including work—within two weeks of surgery, meaning you won’t have to miss out playing with your family for very long. More strenuous activities and exercise may be restricted for several weeks.
