So your kids are growing up before your eyes and you finally have a few seconds to think about yourself and the way your body looked before you were pregnant. While you love your kids more than anything in the world, you also still want to look your best. You already watch what you eat and exercise, but you still are not entirely happy with how your body looks. Well, many women around the country are turning to a procedure called the Mommy Makeover to get back their pre-pregnancy figures.
Mommy Makeover procedures are actually on the rise over the last decade according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In 2010, for instance, women had over 100,000 tummy tucks, which was up 85% from 2000; 90,000 breast lifts, which was up 70% from 2000; and almost 300,000 breast augmentations, which was up almost 40% from 2000.
What is a Complete Mommy Makeover?
The term, “Mommy Makeover” is used to describe a procedure that rejuvenates the abdomen and breasts. This procedure specifically aims to address some of the body changes that occur after pregnancy. With breasts, the most common complaints are deflation and sagging. With the belly or abdomen, it is usually stretch marks and excess skin.
Who Should Have a Mommy Makeover?
Women who are in good health and have finished having children are good candidates for this type of procedure.
What Can I Expect From My First Consultation With a Plastic Surgeon?
You should sit down with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to discuss your procedure. This is the time for you to share your goals and your concerns so that you and your surgeon can develop a plan together.
Is the Complete Mommy Makeover Done at One Time?
Depending on your preferences and the complexity of surgery, you can either do the surgery in one or two stages.
What are the Common Combinations for a Mommy Makeover?
A typical Mommy Makeover consists of a combination of the following procedures: breast reduction, breast lift with or without implant augmentation, mini-abdominoplasty or mini-tummy tuck, abdominoplasty or tummy tuck and liposuction.
Can Any Provider Perform the Procedure?
When investing in a Mommy Makeover, it is important to choose your doctor wisely. Choosing a doctor that is Board Certified will ensure that you are using a doctor that has the necessary experience to complete this type of procedure. Because of the multiple procedures, which typically go into a Complete Mommy Makeover, choosing a doctor that is not properly licensed or experienced can cause problems that may have to be corrected in the future. So always do your research and ask to see credentials.
