Motherhood is a joy and blessing. Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, however, can cause unwanted changes to your body, even if you are healthy and live an active lifestyle. Therefore, make a difference for yourself in the coming New Year by simply getting a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover consists of different procedures, both surgical and minimally invasive, to reverse the unwanted changes brought by pregnancy, such as stretch marks, belly bulge, and deflated breasts.
Here’s a simple guide to give you an idea of what this procedure is all about and to help you get better results. Bear in mind, that this guide does not replace an in-depth consultation with our board-certified surgeons at Burt & Will Plastic Surgery and Laser Centre.
- Ideal Candidates
You may qualify for a mommy makeover if you are in good overall health, are free of any serious medical conditions that may increase the risk of complications, and have realistic expectations. Additionally, you may have to wait for six to nine months after childbirth and breastfeeding before you can have this procedure. If you have excess pregnancy weight, it’s also best to lose it, as reaching at least close to your ideal weight can give you better results.
Your mommy makeover can involve coordinated procedures to give you maximum results. In most cases, a mommy makeover includes a combination of breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. When you consult with our surgeons, we will help you choose the right combinations to achieve your desired results. We can also help you decide whether you want the procedures performed at one time or individual procedures spread over a period of time. The first option is costly as it will require an upfront fee. However, having all the procedures done at one time can help you save in the long run, undergo one episode of general anesthesia and recovery period, and see the results sooner. Of course, open communication is key on both sides to ensure that maximum results are obtained without compromising safety.
The success of your makeover depends on how well you’re prepared before, during and after the surgery. This is where in-depth consultation comes into play, where we will discuss your medical history, medicines and supplements you’re taking, lifestyle, exercise habits and many other factors. We will provide preparation and recovery instructions to ensure that you are physically fit for the procedures, and that you will heal properly.
The results of your makeover will not only restore your pre-baby figure but can make you love your body more. Therefore, start 2017 right by feeling great about yourself. To ensure that you get the results you want, choose an experienced surgeon by contacting Burt & Will Plastic Surgery and Laser Centre to schedule a consultation.
