Having a child is usually an exciting time in a woman’s life. Not only will there be changes in lifestyle, but her body will change as well. Some women notice larger breasts, which can be viewed as positive enhancements courtesy of nature. However, a stretch-marked stomach, deflated breasts post-weaning, lumpy fat deposits and scar tissue are usually not considered to be a positive thing. Some women bemoan that childbirth ruined their body, but the evidence of pregnancy and breastfeeding can be undone with cosmetic surgery. A mommy makeover may be just what you need to regain your pre-pregnancy figure.
The Adaptability of the Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a surgical procedure designed to erase unwanted signs of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Your procedure is personalized for your specific concerns and desires, which vary from woman to woman. Dr. Scott and his team will work with you to create a plan that addresses all of your concerns, so be honest about your feelings. There are solutions to almost everything, and your mommy makeover will be customized to your needs. Typical procedures include a tummy tuck, liposuction, a breast lift and breast augmentation.
When to Consider a Mommy Makeover
Timing your makeover is a personal decision, but there are some general guidelines you’ll want to consider. First, you’ll want to be sure your family is complete. While cosmetic surgery alone doesn’t preclude you from getting pregnant and having a healthy baby, the pregnancy will likely undo a lot of the work accomplished during your makeover. You also want to wait until you have completely healed from giving birth and are back to your usual energy levels.
Never Too Late
It doesn’t matter if you last gave birth 20 months or 20 years ago, a mommy makeover is still a possibility if you are reasonably healthy. If you are an older mom, Dr. Scott may even be able to address signs of aging during your procedure if you’d like. Some of the symptoms of aging also mimic post-pregnancy, like sagging skin and drooping breasts. If you’ve put off your decision to have your cosmetic issues addressed, it’s never too late!
