Davis, MD Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, California, can give you back the body you had before having kids. Schedule a visit with Dr. Davis, by calling the Los Angeles office today or booking your consultation online.
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures to improve the shape and appearance of your body after you’ve had children. The term “mommy makeover” encompasses both breast and body rejuvenation procedures.
It's an inescapable fact that childbirth changes the appearance of your body. Both pregnancy and breastfeeding take a toll on the firmness and structure of your muscles and tissues. The skin on your tummy may look lax and sag, no matter how many sit-ups you do.
After having children, it's common to see changes in your:
Working out and dropping back down to your pre-pregnancy weight often cannot correct these changes.
A typical mommy makeover includes procedures to target your breasts, tummy, and the sides of your waist. Dr. Davis typically addresses these areas by providing a breast augmentation with a lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction around your stomach and waistline. She also offers procedures to tighten lax genital tissues.
When you meet with Dr. Davis for a consultation, feel free to be candid about the areas that trouble you. She customizes your treatment to help you achieve your aesthetic goals and help you feel like your pre-baby self again.
Mommy makeovers are perfect for most women who’d like to regain the shape and appearance they had before childbirth and breastfeeding. Dr. Davis recommends making sure you’re done having children to improve the longevity of your results from your mommy makeover.
Your recovery depends on the type of breast and body contouring procedures included in your makeover. You can expect to wear a sports bra and compression garment for 4-6 weeks after breast surgery and liposuction.
Dr. Davis recommends refraining from heavy lifting and strenuous physical exercise for 4-6 weeks to give your body sufficient time to heal fully.
