What is a Mommy Makeover?
“Mommy Makeover” is a term to define breast and body rejuvenation after childbirth. Permanent changes can occur in the body after pregnancy and breastfeeding affecting the structure and integrity of tissue. A mommy makeover focuses on improvement of these changes that cannot be modified by diet or exercise alone. A typical “Mommy Makeover” consists of a breast augmentation with a lift, an abdominoplasty and liposuction to the abdomen and flank region. A “Mommy Makeover“ procedure ideally should be performed when one has completed having children to improve the longevity of the results.
What to Expect:
This procedure is performed in the operating room under general anesthesia. The duration of the procedure depends on the type of breast and body contouring procedure included in your “Mommy Makeover.”
Recovery is dependent on the type of breast and body contouring procedure included in your “Mommy Makeover”. However breast and body procedures will require a sports bra and compression garment to be worn for 4-6 weeks. Heavy lifting and strenuous physical activity should be avoided for 4-6 weeks.
