While having children is one of the greatest gifts life can bring, the physical changes brought on by pregnancy and breast-feeding often takes a toll on one’s appearance that can ultimately prove difficult to reverse with diet and exercise alone.
A “mommy makeover” is a combination of surgical and/or non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedures designed to get you back to your pre-pregnancy figure. These can include body contouring procedures, facial rejuvenation, breast enhancement, and other options.
I can only say thank you, thank you, thank you to the most brilliant Doctor (Dr Rory Dower), for his excellent skill, professionalism, wonderful manner, and massive heart.
Treatments for a mommy makeover often include two or more of the following procedures:
This can include a breast lift to tighten the breast skin and restore a more youthful shape; breast augmentation to replace lost volume; or breast reduction to address breasts that may be too large for your individual body frame. Also, breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift to correct sagging and restore lost volume at the same time.
During pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are typically pulled apart and stretched. Excess skin can also accumulate in the abdominal area and it can be very difficult to get rid of on your own. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is performed to eliminate the excess skin and fat around the abdomen and tighten the underlying muscles for a firmer, more toned appearance.
Liposuction can remove fat deposits developed during and after pregnancy that have proven resistant to standard weight loss methods. This procedure can be performed virtually anywhere on the body.
A mommy makeover can ultimately give you a slimmer silhouette, a more contoured body shape, firmer breasts, and a rejuvenated appearance.
Since each mommy makeover is personalized to meet your individual aesthetic goals, the recovery time for the procedure will vary from patient to patient. The unique combination of procedures you elect for your mommy makeover will dictate whether your treatment will take place during a single operation or staged over more than one session.
