The physical changes that come with pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on your body, and you may feel like you’ve lost a bit of your identity. A mommy makeover combines plastic surgery procedures designed to help mothers reverse the ravages of childbirth and breastfeeding on their bodies.
Recover Your Pre-Pregnancy Body
A mommy makeover is a collection of procedures to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body. Instead of undergoing several procedures separately, you undergo one supercharged procedure to reverse the effects of childbirth on your breasts, abdomen, and lower body. The specific procedures included in your mommy makeover depend on your goals, but some of the most common mommy makeover techniques include liposuction, breast augmentation and/or lift, abdominoplasty, and Brazilian butt lift.
The Goals of Mommy Makeover:
- Helping you regain your pre-pregnancy body
- Restoring the breasts to their pre-pregnancy size and shape
- Tightening and toning the abdominal muscles
- Reducing excess skin and fat on the stomach, thighs, and other areas
- Improving the appearance of the genital area
- Boosting your self-confidence and self-esteem
- Helping you feel more comfortable and confident in your skin
Are You Done Having Children?
If you plan on having more children, please wait until you are done before undergoing a mommy makeover. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause the body to change again. Your skin will stretch, you’ll develop excess fat deposits, and your abdominal muscles will weaken, thus wiping away the results of your procedure. Dr. Lalezar recommends postponing a mommy makeover until you’re confident you won’t have any more children, ensuring long-lasting results.
Dr. Lalezar’s Surgical Technique
As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lalezar is highly skilled in performing mommy makeovers. He takes a personalized approach to mommy makeovers, carefully evaluating your individual goals and concerns to create a treatment plan that meets your needs. The specific details of your procedure depend on your surgical plan. However, Dr. Lalezar always makes incisions along the natural creases of your skin to minimize visible scarring. The procedure usually takes 3 to 5 hours.
Your Recovery Journey
After your mommy makeover, you must take the time to rest and recover. Dr. Lalezar will provide detailed instructions on how to care for yourself during recovery. It’s normal to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort after surgery. Dr. Lalezar will prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort you may experience. Most patients can return to work and normal daily activities within a few weeks, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for at least 6 to 8 weeks.
