What Is a Mommy Makeover?
The Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures performed at once to achieve the pre-pregnancy body. Typically, the process consists of breast augmentation, breast lift, abdominoplasty, liposuction, and circumferential abdominoplasty. The surgery is personalized, and you can choose what procedure you wish to have to receive the best results.
When Is a Good Time to Have a Mommy Makeover?
Typically, once you have fully recovered from giving birth, you are at a pretty good place to undergo a Mommy Makeover.
If you are deciding to do any breast procedures, it is best to wait after you are done breastfeeding. Some injectables are not recommended if you are still breastfeeding. It is best to consult with your surgeon to figure out when the best time is to undergo surgery.
How Dangerous Is a Mommy Makeover?
There are always risks when undergoing surgery. A Mommy Makeover consists of several procedures, so the risks vary depending on the treatment. Some of the risks and complications include:
- Poor healing of incisions
- Loss of nipple sensation
- Inability to breastfeed
- Implant leak
- Capsular contracture
- Anaplastic large cell lymphoma
- Unfavorable scarring
- Recurrent looseness of skin
- Fat necrosis
- Deep venous thrombosis
- Cardiac and pulmonary complications
- Persistent pain
- Contour deformity
- Fat embolization
- Anesthesia risks
Recovering after a Mommy Makeover typically takes about one to two weeks, all depending on what procedure you undergo. Compression garments or elastic bandages might be included to keep down any swelling.
After undergoing a Mommy Makeover, your results might not show immediately after because your body will need to take time to heal. Once the swelling has gone down and scars begin to fade is when you will start to see results.
It is essential to keep a healthy lifestyle by continuing to diet and exercise. Within three months after the surgery, you should be healed enough to wear a bathing suit and show off your new body.
