More Than Just Looks: How a Mommy Makeover can Change Your Life

The mommy makeover has become a popular way for moms to regain their youthful figure. A combination of procedures can be customized to the unique needs and desired results of each individual patient. While the primary goal of a mommy makeover is to enhance one’s physical looks, the benefits of the procedures are much more far-reaching.

What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that might include any of the following:

  • Breast Lift
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction

The primary goal is to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy look. This might include lifting sagging breasts, tightening loose abdominal muscles and removing unwanted areas of fat with laser assisted liposuction (“SmartLipo”) that developed with the pregnancy. Loose abdominal skin can be removed as part of a tummy tuck procedure. Additional procedures may also be recommended, based on the specific needs of the patient.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover can produce dramatic improvements to the overall body contour. Clothes begin to fit better and the body looks and feels more like it did prior to pregnancy. Other benefits of a mommy makeover might include:

  • Improved confidence
  • Higher self-esteem
  • Starting point for healthy lifestyle changes
  • Ability to wear different clothing
  • Opportunities to pursue new activities

Recovery Information

Mommy makeovers may be performed in a single session, so as to have only one recovery period. Recovery is usually relatively short, with most patients returning to their normal day to day activities within 10-14 days after each procedure. While there is some discomfort associated with a mommy makeover, this can be managed with pain medication.  Most of the bruising and swelling after the procedure is generally resolved by 2-3 weeks.

Moms tend to put all of themselves into the raising of their little ones, with little left over for their own physical and mental well-being. A mommy makeover is one way moms can focus on themselves for a period of time, giving themselves the necessary help to regain their old bodies and appearance. When women look good, they usually feel better as well.
