Everything There is to Know About a Mommy Makeover

After delivering children, women usually experience different changes to the body, such as increased breast size, sagging tummy, and stretch marks. Many are eager to recover their before-pregnancy look thus consider going for a mommy makeover. Therefore, before a patient opts for the procedure, there are a few things that mother’s need to keep in mind.mom-and-baby-having-fun

Several Procedures in One Operation

A common misconception with a mommy makeover procedure is to think that one surgery fits all. In fact, a mommy makeover includes several different procedures combined into one or two operations. What is included in your mommy makeover may differ from what is included in the next patient’s. Most commonly the procedure includes a combination of a breast lift, tummy tuck, breast reduction, liposuction, and/or breast augmentation (implants). When you begin researching a “mommy makeover” keep in mind that it is a descriptive term and a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Franckle will identify exactly what you will undergo.

Preparing for Surgery

One important consideration of any women consulting about a mommy makeover procedure is, ‘will I be pregnant again?’ Pregnancy after the procedure has the potential to erase all the great results. Other considerations include medical history, current medications, family history of breast cancer and past surgeries. Patients who are 40 years and above may be asked to have a mammogram, electrocardiogram, or chest X-ray before the operation.

Will the Results Last?

Maintaining a constant weight after a mommy makeover procedure can help results last longer. It is important to remember that we cannot escape aging and gravity does have a natural effect on the body.

Women should plan carefully for a mommy makeover and determine the right time for them to undergo the procedure. It’s wise to consult with an experienced surgeon to fully understand the costs and implications. Join us for a consultation with Dr. Franckle for a better picture of what your mommy makeover would entail.
