What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a standard combination of cosmetic surgery procedures that are performed together during one operation: a breast lift, a tummy tuck and liposuction (normally of the stomach and lower body). These are standard cosmetic surgery procedures combined into one package with the goal of restoring moms body.
A mommy makeover is a type of body sculpting that helps women get their bodies back after childbirth. ReInventMe has fantastic doctors and providers that deal with helping mom get her body back. We know that life after bearing children can be hard on the body and things can look different than before.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Mommy Makeovers?
In general, mommy makeovers are great for those who are finished having kids and would like to improve the overall look and feel of their body.
Mommy makeovers are tailored to the individual patients who receive them. The first step in any mommy makeover is, of course, to speak to your doctor. With your surgeon's help, you can then decide what areas you would like to target and what procedures correspond with those issues.
What are the Benefits of Mommy Makeovers?
Mommy makeovers help mom feel more sexy and confident in her body like she used to in her 20's. It's typical that weight is lost, the stomach is firmer and breasts have been lifted during most procedures.
Mommy makeovers are performed as an outpatient surgery which means that you will do most of your recovery at home. That said, you may be given a recovery suite for the first twenty-four hours. After that period is over, you will be sent home where recovery will last anywhere from one to two weeks. The actual time varies and is dependent upon which procedures you received.
One big thing to keep in mind is that you will not be able to participate in normal activities for a little while. You will need help doing routine chores around the house and you will not be able to drive until you have stopped the pain medications. Your recovery time will depend on the type of procedures received.
