What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Having kids can change a woman’s body in both expected and unexpected ways, some of which are more welcome than others. That’s where the mommy makeover comes in. Mommy makeover is the catch-all term for a grouping of different plastic surgeries aimed at addressing the specific changes new moms face with their body. The mommy makeover is one of today's most popular combination plastic surgery techniques as it is the best all-in-one solution for moms.
A mommy makeover is a tailored combination of body contouring procedures that are done in tandem to improve physical changes that accompany pregnancy. Each procedure is customized by your surgeon to fit the individual patient's unique needs—some women will need specific procedures that others will not. However, the surgical approach generally starts with a breast and abdomen contouring procedure (often a tummy tuck and breast augmentation or augmentation/lift), then adds additional elements as needed.
The ideal candidate for a mommy makeover should not plan on having any more children to uphold the results of this procedure long term. The mommy makeover is perfect for mothers wanting to get back to their pre-baby bodies and keep it!
What components are involved in a mommy makeover?
As the breasts and abdomen are the primary areas of change with motherhood, procedures centered around the breast and abdominal areas—usually breast augmentation and tummy tuck—are the foundation of the mommy makeover.
The mommy makeover may also involve:
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reduction
- Tummy Tuck
With any surgery comes scarring, but since you will be having multiple surgeries on different areas of the body during a mommy makeover, you’ll have more scar healing to contend with after your procedure. Healing surgery scars involves a regimen of both topical creams and the gold standard in scar healing: high-quality silicone sheeting. Luckily, Rejuvaskin offers the best quality scar healing products that can be customized and tailored to fit your specific type of scarring, including four different options for breast surgery scarring. By applying scar healing products immediately after your procedures, you will be able to diminish the appearance of your scarring.
