A mommy makeover can give you your ideal body shape and size in a way that diet and exercise hasn’t been able to. Through a combination of a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and liposuction, you could have your pre-baby body back, but this procedure comes with many questions.
Dr. Chiaramonte at Bella Cosmetic Surgery can answer all of your questions during your consultation in Maryland, but here are answers to three of the most common questions:
1. What is a Mommy Makeover?
There are troublesome areas that diet and exercise can’t get rid of, and many women are left with stretch marks after pregnancy. A mommy makeover is a series of procedures done to help women regain their figure after childbirth. These procedures include:
Some women don’t require all three surgeries. Dr. Chiaramonte can help you decide which of these plastic surgeries are right for you.
2. How Soon Can I Have a Mommy Makeover?
It’s best to wait until you’re done having children and your youngest is fairly self-sufficient. A mommy makeover is an invasive procedure that requires ample recovery time. You won’t be able to properly care for an infant or child during this time.
Your breasts, skin and muscles have all been stretched, and it can take up to a year for your body to return to normal after childbirth. Try to lose as much of your pregnancy weight as you can before having a mommy makeover. This will give you better results, and a healthy lifestyle will ensure your results last.
3. How Long Will My Recovery Take?
The necessary recovery time varies by woman and on how many procedures were performed. You will most likely need several months to fully recover. You will not be able to lift heavy objects (including your children) or exercise for at least several weeks.
