Simplicity is the ultimate Sophistication
Mommy Makeover Edina
During the processes of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, it’s natural for a woman’s body to undergo several changes. Apart from the stretch marks, there are other changes that may appear unpleasant, such as drooping breasts, a sagging buttocks, and weight gain.
Most women want their pre-pregnancy bodies back, but no matter how much time they spend dieting or in the gym, they see no results. The answer to this issue is a Mommy Makeover.
The Mommy Makeover is a package of several plastic surgery procedures that help restore your body to your pre-pregnancy appearance. Typically, these procedures focus on your abdomen and breasts.
Procedure options for the package include the tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction. The term “Mommy Makeover” is fairly new, but these procedures have been safely conducted for several years and have great success rates.
Who Should Consider a Mommy Makeover?
Women who are unhappy with their post-pregnancy bodies are ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover package. The procedure can repair and reverse issues like a change in shape and size of your breasts, a sagging tummy, stretch marks, loose skin, and excess deposits of fat in the abdomen, waist, hips, or thighs. Women who have undergone C-sections are also eligible.
How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
As mentioned above, a Mommy Makeover is a combination of different procedures of your choosing. During a consultation with a highly skilled board certified plastic surgeon, you will discuss which procedures you would like performed.
The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, helps correct loose excess skin, fat deposits, and sagging muscles in the abdominal area. It tightens the area underneath the upper layer of skin, which results in a firmer abdomen and the removal of stretch marks.
Liposuction, or lipoplasty, helps improve your body’s contours by removing excess deposits of fatty tissue in areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, chest, neck, and upper arms. This procedure is often recommended with the tummy tuck.
A breast lift, or mastopexy, helps correct uneven drooping breasts and stretched areolae. They give your breasts a nice lift and return them to a more youthful appearance. Women who want to change the size of their breasts may consider a breast augmentation procedure along with their mastopexy.
Aftercare and Recovery
Different procedures will have different recovery periods, but with a Mommy Makeover, the procedures will all be performed together, requiring only a single recovery period.
The first week will be the roughest, but the discomfort will become easier as the days progress. It is advised that for the first couple of weeks, you refrain from strenuous physical activities that can apply a lot of pressure on your stitches. Full recovery is expected to take about six weeks.
