What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that is designed to reverse the effects of childbearing. After pregnancy, women are often left with sagging skin, stubborn fat, and various changes to the breasts. Individual cosmetic surgery techniques can be helpful, but they all require lengthy recovery periods. A mommy makeover combines multiple treatments into one procedure for a comprehensive solution. Mommy makeover procedures are customized based on a patient’s specific treatment needs, and can include any of the following techniques:
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The cost of your mommy makeover will vary depending on the treatments involved and the extent of surgery necessary to produce your desired results. During your consultation, you and Dr. Volshteyn will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the best approach to your mommy makeover procedure. Once your treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment. To learn more about what you can expect and how you can pay for your treatment, please refer to our page on plastic surgery financing.
What is the Mommy Makeover Procedure Like?
Mommy makeovers are performed under general anesthesia to keep patients safe and comfortable during the procedure. The incisions made for your mommy makeover will depend on the techniques involved. In all cases, however, Dr. Volshteyn strives to use incisions that are as small and discreet as possible. During your initial consultation, we will give you more information on what you can expect from your mommy makeover procedure based upon your individualized treatment plan.
What is the Recovery Period Like After a Mommy Makeover?
After a mommy makeover, patients may need to take about two weeks off of work and other normal activities in order to rest and heal. During this time, it is common to experience bruising, swelling, and varying levels of discomfort in the treatment areas. After the initial recovery period, patients will have to take extra care to avoid exercise and other strenuous activities for at least a month. Patients are encouraged to get as much rest as possible during this time in order to facilitate a speedy recovery.
Are the Results from a Mommy Makeover Permanent?
The results from your mommy makeover procedure will be long-lasting and even permanent. However, future changes in weight, pregnancy, and the natural aging process can impact your results from treatment. We encourage patients to maintain a healthy diet and exercise habits in order to make their results last as long as possible. Furthermore, we recommend that patients wait to have a mommy makeover procedure until they no longer plan on having additional children.
