Pregnancy is an amazing, life-changing experience that can, unfortunately, also take a significant toll on your body. Your body expands and takes on fat to help your baby grow and thrive. However, after birth, your body may have trouble regaining its original skin elasticity, muscle tone, and slim physique. Diet and exercise can only restore so much of your pre-pregnancy body. The Mommy Makeover is designed to restore youthful contours and help correct the following conditions:
|☛ Sagging breasts||☛ Small or deflated breasts||☛ A protruding abdomen|
|☛ Separated abdominal muscles||☛ Stretched skin on the abdomen||☛ Excess stubborn fat on the body|
Mommy Makeover FAQ
Q: Can I customize my Mommy Makeover?
A: Each Mommy Makeover is specifically tailored to fit each patient’s needs. You will discuss your desired body contouring results with Dr. Hochstein during your initial consultation. Together, you and Dr. Hochstein will design a treatment plan that best suits your unique needs.
Q: Can I have multiple surgeries at once?
A: The Mommy Makeover is designed for the easy combination of procedures to minimize your recovery period. The most common combinations are liposuction and tummy tuck or breast lift and breast augmentation in one surgery.
Q: How long after my pregnancy should I wait before undergoing a Mommy Makeover?
A: Before undergoing Mommy Makeover surgery, you should attempt natural weight loss and muscle toning. This helps to ensure you achieve the best results possible. It is recommended that you are within 10-15lbs of your goal weight when having surgery. Women seeking breast surgery must wait until after they have finished breastfeeding.
Q: Will my Mommy Makeover prevent me from having kids in the future?
A: None of the procedures involved in a Mommy Makeover will prevent you from having future children. However, it is suggested that you only undergo your Mommy Makeover once you have finished having children. Any future pregnancies can alter your results, which may require additional surgeries to correct.
Q: Will my Mommy Makeover results be permanent?
A: Mommy Makeover results are long lasting. To maintain the best results possible, continual diet and exercise is important. Future pregnancies or weight gain can affect the quality of your results.
