Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Candidates for a mommy makeover are usually women who have completed their families and wish to reclaim a more youthful figure. Sometimes, women may consider a mommy makeover before completing their families, but some of the results may be affected by future pregnancy. The most common procedures to include in a mommy makeover are:
A mommy makeover isn’t limited to these procedures, but is instead tailor-made to meet your unique needs. If you have other areas of your face or body that you would like to address, Dr. Andan will develop a customized approach to help you meet your goals.
Your Mommy Makeover Procedure
Dr. Andan understands that choosing to have a mommy makeover is a highly personal decision. During your consultation, he’ll take the time to answer any questions you have and make sure that you feel comfortable about making your decision to move forward.
The exact mommy makeover procedure depends on the treatments included and your individual goals. Most commonly, women include breast enhancement and a tummy tuck. Many women also choose liposuction or Smartlipo™ to slim down problem spots and better enhance their overall figure.
A mommy makeover is typically performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure, so you can return home once your procedure is complete.
Your Recovery & Results
After you return home following your mommy makeover, you’ll receive a phone call from our office making sure you’re doing well and checking up on the initial stages of your healing process.
Recovering from a mommy makeover varies for each individual and depends on the type and number of procedures included. In general, you can expect to take at least a week of downtime before resuming a normal routine. You may wish to engage in light physical activity after about 2 weeks, but you should avoid anything strenuous for several additional weeks.
You should notice a change in your body immediately after your surgery, although your final results won’t be apparent for a few months. Swelling and bruising are normal during the initial stages of healing and should gradually subside as your body recovers. Depending on the procedures included in your mommy makeover, you may be able to see your final results in as little as a couple of months, although more extensive procedures can take 3 months or more to reveal their full effect.
