The term “mommy makeover” was coined in 2005 and has increased in popularity ever since. To restore your body to pre-pregnancy condition, a mommy makeover conveniently combines two or more plastic surgery procedures into one which lowers the cost and recovery time.
Pregnancy is beautiful but it does take a toll on your body. Many effects of pregnancy don’t go away with time including:
- Loose or separated abdominal muscles
- Loose skin, stretch marks and spider veins
- Weight gain due to hormones, lifestyle or unbalanced diet
- Loss of volume in breasts
Is a Mommy Makeover Right For You?
A mommy makeover may be right for you if you are 100% sure you are finished growing your family. You also should be fully recovered from pregnancy and have 2 weeks time available off from work.
It is recommended that you wait 3 to 6 months after you’re done breastfeeding before you undergo a mommy makeover.
Benefits of Choosing a Mommy Makeover Versus Several Separate Procedures
Depending on the procedures you select, combining surgeries can reduce cost by several thousand dollars. When two surgeries are combined in a mommy makeover, you are only charged one operating room fee and anesthesia fee instead of two.
The most common mommy makeover combines a breast augmentation and/or lift with a tummy tuck. When you have these two surgeries performed at one time, your recovery time can be reduced by as much as six weeks.
If cost and time savings is not enough, you should know that 68% of female body contouring patients noticed an improvement in their sex life after the procedure.
