Mommy Makeover Q & A
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover describes two or more plastic surgery procedures where the intention is to restore a woman’s body after having children. Just as no two women share the exact same experience of having a child, no two mommy makeovers are alike.
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding all take a toll on a woman’s body. Regardless of whether you have one child or several, it’s hard to get back to your pre-pregnancy condition. This can leave you feeling out of touch with your body and lacking confidence.
A mommy makeover can help by restoring areas of your body that have changed since motherhood. For many women, a mommy makeover leaves them even more pleased with their body’s contouring than before they welcomed a child into the world.
What are some procedures that a mommy makeover may include?
During your initial consultation at Houston Cosmetic Surgery Center, you discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Davila, who is there to explain the process and answer any questions you might have. Each mommy makeover is a unique journey, and you can pick and choose which procedures are best suited for your specific needs.
Some of the procedures commonly chosen in a mommy makeover include:
- Breast augmentation (implants)
- Breast lift
- Breast reduction
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
- Body contouring
For women who want to increase their breast size without the use of breast implants, a procedure called auto-augmentation might be a good fit. This approach involves removing tissue from one area of each breast and repositioning it to another.
When is the right time to have a mommy makeover?
If you’re considering a mommy makeover, timing is important. It’s imperative that you wait until you finish adding to your family before moving forward with a mommy makeover.
Choosing to become pregnant again after having a tummy tuck or breast procedure almost certainly alters your results. A mommy makeover is an investment, both financially and in terms of recovery time. You want to enjoy the results as long as possible.
Timing is also important for new mothers. Your body needs time to heal after pregnancy and childbirth. Moving forward with cosmetic surgery too soon can make it harder for your body to adjust and heal. During your initial consultation, Dr. Davila discusses timing and what to expect in terms of recovery and results.
