Improving your confidence after having children can sometimes be as simple as hitting the gym and paying attention to your nutrition. Other times, however, more may be needed to achieve the appearance you desire. Having children can take a huge toll on your body, leaving stretchmarks, saggy skin, and drooping breasts, separated weak abdominal muscles and even changes to the vaginal area.
Exercise and diet may only go so far. If you are a mother who misses the way you used to look and want to feel confident again, don’t lose hope just yet. You may be eligible for a Mommy Makeover.
A: A Mommy Makeover procedure is highly individualized and depends on the patient’s desires.
The procedure may include, but is not limited to:
- Breast lift, augmentation, reduction, or a combination of these
- Tummy tuck (flattens and tightens the stomach and surrounding areas which tend to bulge after pregnancy)
- Liposuction (removes excess fat from targeted areas such as the stomach, hips, butt, thighs, chin, cheeks, and neck)
- Vaginal Rejuvenation
A: The standard healing timeline is about two to four weeks. Some women choose to return to work after one – two weeks, but we advise against heavy lifting for at least four to six weeks.
A: The best time to get a mommy makeover done is when you are positive that you are done having children. Women who have children after having a mommy makeover done often find that their results have reversed due to the pregnancy, and may need a revision.
If you have just given birth to your child, it is also best to wait until at least six months after you have stopped breastfeeding.
You’ll want to wait until you’re fully healed from your pregnancy. Pregnancy is one of the most taxing experiences you can live through, and you want to make sure you have the energy and nutritional reserves before moving forward with this procedure.
