About Our Mommy Makeover Procedure
A mommy makeover is a popular way to regain your pre-pregnancy body. Having a child can be one of the most fulfilling experiences a woman can have. However, pregnancy can cause dramatic changes to a woman’s body, leaving extra skin, stretch marks and overall sagging. Once a mother is finished having children, she may look to rejuvenate her body and return to a more youthful physique. One surgical solution offered by the Plastic Surgery Institute is the Mommy Makeover. The Mommy makeover in Orange County is an approach using a combination of procedures, most often including a tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction and thigh lifts. When combined with a balanced diet and exercise, this approach can have incredible results, taking years off of a woman’s appearance.
Ideal Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a set of surgeries designed for women who are done with having children and breastfeeding and is best for those who can maintain a stable weight. Optimal candidates are in good health, do not smoke or are willing to stop before the surgery, and have realistic expectations.
However, not everyone should get a mommy makeover. It is not recommended for women with a BMI over 30. Additionally, if you are still deciding whether to have a baby in the future, you should wait until you are 100% sure about not having future children, since this can affect the surgery’s results.
Your Mommy Makeover Consultation
When you come for a consultation at the Plastic Surgery Institute of California, you should be prepared to discuss your health status, medical history, and risk factors with one of our surgeons. It is important to be clear about your goals.
The consultation will also include a physical examination to assess your concerns and determine the proper procedures for you. You and your doctor will discuss the potential procedures that you can choose from. They will then develop a customized treatment plan for you.
The Mommy Makeover Recovery Process
A mommy makeover requires lengthy downtime. However, since it only involves a single recovery period, recovery is much shorter than it would be if you had gotten all of the chosen procedures performed separately.
Post-surgical requirements must be worn during the mommy makeover healing process. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort will be experienced but will fade in time.
You should not lift any heavy objects or bend over for three to four weeks, so plan when it comes to your food, work, and errands. Avoid physically taxing activities like sports and heavy exercise.
The Cost of a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover’s cost depends on factors like the exact combination of procedures that will be included. Its price may also be impacted by the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fees, hospital facility costs, medical tests, medications, post-surgery garments, and implants.
