Mommy Makeover


Mommy Makeover

The aim of the mommy makeover is to restore the shape and appearance of a woman's body after childbearing. Many women notice changes in their bodies in the post-pregnancy period. Different areas of the body can be addressed and “reshaped”, most commonly the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia and buttocks. A mommy makeover is typically performed as a single-stage procedure. There are many techniques used to perform a mommy makeover, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which techniques are best. The mommy makeover can include breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, buttock restoration, arm lift or thigh lift. The scope of the operation depends on the patients’ needs and requests. Sometimes the operations can be performed in two sessions which will be decided by the surgeon.

A mommy makeover is a procedure series to improve the appearance of the affected parts after birth. The procedure depends on the patient and their needs and expectations. Breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck, Brazilian butt lift, liposuction, and labiaplasty are among the parts of a usual mommy makeover.

Abdominal muscles, skin, and tissues stretch during pregnancy. Diet and exercise may be helpful to lose weight. However, it may not be smooth sailing for your skin and tissue. At this point, you may like to know more about the mommy makeover.

In this article, we will focus on transforming post-pregnancy body, and mommy makeover techniques. You will also read about how to choose the right surgeon for your future mommy makeover, and mommy makeover procedures in the second part of the article.

Transforming Post-Pregnancy Body: Exploring the Mommy Makeover

The best way for preparing yourself for a mommy makeover procedure is to learn every detail of every step before, during, and after the mommy makeover. You can search for yourself, but it is always better to consult an expert. Your surgeon will help you with your concerns. Having realistic expectations from a mommy makeover is important to avoid any disappointment. You should be strong to cope with any anxiety before and after the procedure. 

There are tons of things to do before the mommy makeover procedure to reach better results after the procedure. If you smoke, you are highly recommended to quit immediately. Your alcohol consumption must be limited as well. One of the best ways to avoid complications of a surgical procedure is to lose weight. Exercise several days a week. That will prepare you mentally as well as physically for the surgery. A well-prepared diet is as important as exercise after giving birth and during the pre-mommy makeover. 

Choosing the Right Surgeon for Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is a body rejuvenation and body contouring procedure and is usually performed after at least six weeks from birth. The body parts like breasts do not respond well to diet and exercise. That makes mommy makeovers very common. The procedure of a mommy makeover depends on each person. Choosing the right plastic surgeon is very important as a mommy makeover is a quite personal procedure. When you meet your surgeon for the first time at the medical center where cosmetic surgery procedures are done, ask them some questions:

  • What are the education, training, and certification of the medical experts?
  • Do they have experience with post-pregnancy procedures? 
  • Do they have the before/after photos to show you? 

If the answers to these and similar questions satisfy you, then you are making the right decision.

Mommy Makeover Procedures

There are several surgeries in the mommy makeover procedure. The procedure can be called a “Mommy Makeover” if you have at least two of these surgeries below:

  • Tummy tuck: After pregnancy and birth, most women develop sagging abdominal tissue and skin in the lower abdomen. A tummy tuck, also known as “abdominoplasty”  is the surgery to correct these effects.
  • Breast augmentation: During pregnancy, many changes occur in a woman's body. Changes in hormone levels and weight are the most common ones. Your breast may appear more deflated after pregnancy. Breast augmentation might be the solution to restore your breasts.
  • Liposuction: Liposuction is a temporary fat-removing procedure and might be helpful after birth.
  • Breast lift: Also, known as “mastopexy” a breast lift is a surgery that helps reposition the areola and the nipple after the effects of pregnancy.
  • Vajinal rejuvenation surgery: Vajinal rejuvenation surgery is a combination of several surgeries that restore the soft tissues that may cause discomfort.
  • Labiaplasty: Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that is carried out to reduce the size of the labia minora. Removing extra tissue makes your labia minara will look much better.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on the procedures performed, total recovery is generally in the 4 to 6 week period to return to full unrestricted activities and exercise. However, patients mostly return to their daily activities at the end of 7-10 days.
There is always scarring associated with surgery. An abdominoplasty, a breast lift, as well as a breast augmentation all involve some type of scarring; however, these generally heal very well and are well hidden by any bikini or bra garments. We also recommend silicone based gels in order to help the scars to fade away in time.
Prefferably when you have returned to your pre-pregnancy weight if possible. In addition, we recommend waiting at least three to six months following breast-feeding so that the breasts may return to or involute to their new natural position.
If a patient is considering having more children it would be unwise to have a mommy makeover. Additional pregnancies would have the same effects on the breast and abdomen as the initial pregnancy did. Therefore you may require further revisionary procedures. While there is no contraindication to becoming pregnant after a mommy makeover it would be much more practical to wait until after the childbearing years have been completed.
A mommy makeover is a significant commitment and investment. We would hope that the patient would be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle and maintain an ideal body weight postoperatively as with any healthy lifestyle this would consist of avoiding smoking and excess weight gain. With regards to the breasts, we do recommend patients continue to wear breast support to minimize gravitational effects on the breasts. In addition, it goes without saying that pregnancies after a mommy makeover would certainly have a negative effect on the recent procedures.
