Fitting back to their pre-childbirth jeans is one of the main concerns of new mothers who visit our Bay Area cosmetic surgery practice for the first time. While welcoming a new member in the household is one of the greatest wonders for both parents, Dr. Lavey and the rest of the team believes that pregnancy and childbirth should change your life and not your body. Thus, we recommend a set of cosmetic procedures specifically designed for new mothers — a Mommy Makeover.
What Happens During a Mommy Makeover
Although each Mommy Makeover procedure is different based on the unique needs and preferences of the woman, a few procedures are commonly sought as they address the usual problems encountered following childbirth. The following trio of procedures are popular in a Mommy Makeover here at our practice:
Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty – This is ideal for new mothers who have problems with sagging abdominal skin and separated abdominal muscles following pregnancy
Breast enhancement surgery with or without implants – Many women find themselves with sagging or droopy breasts following pregnancy and a breast lift or breast augmentation with implants often help improve this problem
Facial rejuvenation procedures such as a face lift, Botox, and dermal fillers – These procedures address problems that has to do with the appearance of folds, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Other procedures that may be included in your Mommy Makeover plan include liposuction and laser treatments.
3 Most Important Questions to Ask Yourself Before Making the Decision
While there are a wide variety of factors that can influence your decision on whether or not you should have a Mommy Makeover, these 3 questions are constant for new mothers who wish to regain their pre-baby body pack and consequently restore their self-confidence,.
Is your current weight stable? To get the most desirable results, it is best to lose all the weight you have gained during pregnancy through a combination of diet and exercise.
Are you done breastfeeding? Breastfeeding can result to increased blood vessel activity and enlarged ducts which increases your likelihood of bleeding during and after breast augmentation.
Are you done having children? If you plans of having more children in the future, you might want to postpone a Mommy Makeover, particularly a tummy tuck. The abdominal muscles could separate again which will only negate the muscle-tightening effects of the procedure.
