Pregnancy is a life-changing experience but also causes dramatic changes to your body. A mommy makeover restores your pre-pregnancy figure. This customized procedure can give you the slimmer, more contoured shape you long to regain.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Dr. Leong understands the psychological impact of the physical changes caused by pregnancy. Even if you work hard to lead a healthy lifestyle and bounce back from your pregnancy, some changes can only be corrected with surgery. A mommy makeover targets your areas of most significant concern to help you achieve the figure you used to have or one you feel even happier about.
What are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover has the power to restore the self-confidence you may have lost while struggling to regain your shape. Some issues, like loose skin or sagging breasts, can only be fixed with surgery.
Restore a Flatter Abdomen
Pregnancy stretches the skin and underlying abdominal muscles. This often leaves you with loose, sagging skin. A tummy tuck can remove this loose skin and excess fat. The procedure can also include liposculpture for more body sculpting.
Rejuvenate the Breasts
Pregnancy also has a noticeable effect on the breasts. In many cases, your post-pregnancy breasts lose volume and begin to droop. Dr. Leong can perform a breast lift or breast augmentation during a mommy makeover to achieve your desired appearance.
Repair Core Muscles
A mommy makeover tightens your abdominal muscles. These muscles can weaken and separate during pregnancy, and repairing them gives you a stronger core and a more contoured waistline. Your repaired core muscles can better support your back and the rest of your body.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?
A mommy makeover can include almost any surgical or non-surgical procedure that helps you achieve your aesthetic goals. Your mommy makeover may include:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Butt Lift
- Laser treatments
- Other procedures
A tummy tuck, breast rejuvenation, and liposculpture usually form the core of a mommy makeover. However, this flexible procedure lets Dr. Leong customize your treatment plan to address all your concerns.
What is Recovery Like After a Mommy Makeover?
You will need to take time to recover during the first week. During this time, you should limit yourself to very light activities. Most people resume their usual routine with some modifications within a few weeks. Exercising and other strenuous activities will need to wait for about two months.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
If you feel frustrated with your post-baby body, you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. Ideal candidates have no major health problems and can take the time to rest and recover. If you plan to become pregnant again in the future, you may want to wait to have your procedure.
