What is a Mommy Makeover?
- Posted on: Sep 24 2016
With the continued development of new technologies in plastic surgery, “mommy makeovers” are now more common. A woman’s body goes through a lot of changes during her pregnancy and the time after she gives birth. Unfortunately, this can mean a lot of unwelcome physical changes for the mother that could make her feel uncomfortable with her body. Fortunately, plastic surgery can deliver a safe, effective solution for women that can make a big impact on the way she looks and feels.
What’s in a Mommy Makeover?
This is surgical makeover that is just for mothers who have had children and are looking to get their body back to a state that they feel comfortable. Maybe they have loose skin, maybe their breasts have sagged or maybe they just have extra fat that they just can’t get rid of. Moms get to choose which parts of their body they want to change and have them surgically altered. There are a lot of different procedures that can be done, so each woman can choose based on her individual body type and specific needs. No two bodies are the same, and every body changes differently, especially when multiple births come into play.
How Can you Get a Mommy Makeover?
If you’re interested in this makeover for yourself, then you need to be in good physical health. You can find more information by visiting Pasadena Surgeons for an evaluation. After that, Dr. Lakshman will let you know whether or not you’re a good candidate for the Mommy Makeover Pasadena surgery.
Which Surgeries are Options?
The specific procedures will be up to you and Dr. Lakshman. Breast lifts, tummy tucks, breast reductions and even butt lifts are all common. Generally a combination of a couple procedures will be done simultaneously so you don’t have to go through multiple surgeries to see the results you desire.
Is it Painful?
The recovery process from any surgery may include mild to moderate pain, especially for women who have multiple procedures done at the same time. Fortunately, our experienced doctors will walk with you through the process, and the pain will subside quickly as you go through recovery. Each recovery is different, but your body should feel better within a week after the surgery is completed. As long as you take your doctor’s advice, you should be able to heal fully within a month (depending on the procedures you have done).
