However, these events also cause significant stress to the mother’s body and often create unwelcome changes, such as stretch marks and droopy breasts. Dr. Graper and Dr. Harper from Graper Cosmetic Surgery understand that these aesthetic imperfections often make mothers feel self-conscious and uneasy in various clothing styles and bathing suits. This is why they offer the comprehensive mommy makeover treatment — a procedure combination that can reverse the unwelcome effects of childbearing and restore a more youthful, attractive physique.
Is A Mommy Makeover Right For Me?
You might be a mommy makeover candidate if you are not planning to become pregnant again. You should also have lost most of your baby weight, because a mommy makeover is not a weight loss procedure. Instead, this treatment can help remove excess skin and localized fat deposits from the abdomen, as well as repair torn abdominal muscles. As a result, the stomach appears flatter, smoother, and the prominence of stretch marks is diminished or gone. In addition, mommy makeover can help restore a perkier, more youthful bustline. If your breasts have lost their volume, Graper Harper Cosmetic Surgery can also perform breast augmentation/lift to restore your curvaceous appearance. These procedures are so effective that some patients have better figures after mommy makeover than they had before pregnancy.
Because a mommy makeover is a highly individualized treatment, a personal consultation with either Dr. Graper or Dr. Harper is required to determine whether you are a good candidate However, some of the factors we will consider are your overall health, whether you have extra skin, muscle and or fat, how much time has passed since your last pregnancy, and whether you have someone available to care for your children while you recover from your mommy makeover treatment.
Mommy Makeover Procedure Details
The precise surgical techniques performed and time spent in surgery will depend on the procedure combination you decide to pursue. Generally, a mommy makeover is performed under general anesthesia because it involves at least two plastic surgery procedures. In many cases, all of the procedures are performed as part of a single surgical session; however, sometimes we recommend that the patient undergoes a mommy makeover in several stages. This might be the case if you desire to restore the contours of your stomach and breasts, and also refresh your facial appearance by undergoing eyelid surgery or facelift.
Depending on your aesthetic needs and wishes, the Doctors might also recommend that you combine your surgical treatments with non-surgical procedures, such as laser vein removal and facial injectables. This procedure combination often helps achieve superb aesthetic outcomes, and it also helps maintain the beautiful results. Some of the more common treatments women undergo as part of the mommy makeover include:
After Your Mommy Makeover Surgery
If you had surgery performed on your abdomen and breasts, these areas will feel tight and swollen after you awaken from anesthesia. Although you will experience some discomfort, any pain will be managed with appropriate medications. During the first two weeks after your mommy makeover, you will have to avoid physical activities and focus on your recovery. Dr. Graper and Dr. Harper highly recommend that you have someone else take care of your children during this time. After two weeks, any stitches and surgical drainage tubes will be removed, and you will be able to gradually resume light physical activities. Over the next few weeks, your incisions will heal, swelling will subside, and you will regain your strength.
The final results of your mommy makeover treatment will become visible within two to four months after your treatment, depending on the precise procedures performed. The results will be better forever depending on your diet, exercise and your genetics.
