What’s Included in Mommy Makeover

Table of Contents

A woman’s body undergoes various changes during pregnancy and results in a poorly shaped body after childbirth. For instance, you may have excess, loosened, or sagging abdominal skin with stretch marks. Sometimes, there are tears in the upper layer of the skin, causing irreversible damages to the dermis. 

Some women also experience diastasis recti, characterized by partially or wholly separated abdominal muscles. The condition can result in severe complications, such as poor posture, decreased range of motion, and lumbar spine pain. The good news is that mommy makeover can resolve these issues. 

Improper breastfeeding can cause loss of tissue in the area. When you stop breastfeeding, your breasts become smaller sag due to volume loss. Mommy makeover procedures, such as a breast lift, breast augmentation, or a combination of these procedures, can restore your breasts’ volume and shape. 

Hormonal changes are common during pregnancy and childbirth, causing the buildup of new fat tissues in your body. The fatty tissues accumulate around your waist, hips, and outer thighs. 

Many women try to lose weight, but they fail to achieve their desired results due to stubborn fat deposits. In that case, mommy makeover involves liposuction, a sophisticated surgery to remove excess fat. The question is: What is included in the mommy makeover? Today’s article will give you essential details. Read on! 

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover combines various cosmetic procedures to restore a woman’s normal appearance, shape, and volume. Depending on your problems, you may undergo one procedure or combination of cosmetic surgeries. 

Mommy makeover can address different body areas problems. However, the most common body areas for which women undergo mommy makeover are breasts, abdomen, hips, buttocks, waist, and genitalia.  

In addition, it is an outpatient surgical procedure, allowing you to go home on the same day. Sometimes, the patient needs to stay for at least 24 hours for proper monitoring and observation if there are any complications. 

The average recovery period is between two and four weeks, but this primarily depends on the specific procedure you have undergone. Likewise, the speed of rehabilitation depends on how accurately you take care of yourself by following your health provider’s instructions. 

You will need your family members’ assistance during the recovery period. Your family member or a nurse can help with daily chores and monitor your progress. You can’t drive your car until your health provider stops pain medication and clear you. If you take narcotics or opioids are for pain management, make sure you don’t drive. 

Although you will relieve swelling within a few weeks, some women experience it for at least six months. Your health provider will evaluate your condition or results after the swelling has subsided. The full recovery period is between six and twelve months. 

Moreover, it is crucial to avoid lifting heavy objects, including your children, because this puts pressure on your muscles and may rupture the incision or cause internal infections. Focus on a healthy diet to maintain your overall wellbeing. 

Your Mommy Makeover May Include:

When you undergo pregnancy or childbirth, you experience significant changes in your breast and abdominal areas. Keep in mind that breastfeeding also increases or decreases the size of your breasts. That’s why a mommy makeover often involves breast augmentation, breast lift, and abdominal procedures. 

Restoring these areas of your body naturally is good, but it can cause a loss in breast volume. In that case, you may notice clear signs of sagging. Therefore, it is wise to follow a proactive approach and discuss your problems with a qualified cosmetic surgeon. 

After performing tests and physical assessments, the surgeon will tell you whether you are the right candidate for the surgery. A mommy makeover usually includes breast lift, breast augmentation, breast reduction, liposuction, abdominoplasty, and tummy tuck.
