What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a customizable procedure to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body and confidence. Several procedures are performed within the same appointment to give a full-body rejuvenation. This type of procedure can be personalized based on your own areas of concern or lifestyle, and a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Prysi can help you accomplish your ideal body goals after an initial consultation.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Entail?
Each mommy makeover treatment plan is unique and depends on the areas of your body that you want to improve. A mommy makeover might include a combination of the following:
- Breast surgery – to enhance, reduce or lift your breasts.
- Abdominoplasty – to tighten and tone your midsection and remove excess saggy skin.
- Liposuction – to reduce localized fat deposits on your back, thighs, buttocks, upper arms, knees or neck.
Who is a Candidate?
Candidates for a mommy makeover are those in the Fort Myers area who are unhappy with some parts of their body after childbirth. This might include breast volume loss, breast sag, loose skin in the abdominal, upper arms, or thighs, or pockets of stubborn fat. To be considered for a mommy makeover, candidates should know they are done having children. They should also be in good health to ensure a successful procedure and recovery. Those in the Fort Myers area who are interested in a mommy makeover should see Dr. Prysi for a consultation to determine if they are a candidate.
What to Expect During a Mommy Makeover Procedure
Each patient’s mommy makeover in Fort Myers will be unique to target their specific concerns. If breast volume loss is an issue, the breasts can be restored with an augmentation with implants. A breast lift can be added to an augmentation or done alone to lift the breasts to their natural position. Those who experience loose skin and weakened abdominal tissue after pregnancy might benefit from a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and lift the tissue to create a contoured abdominal area. Liposuction is often added to remove stubborn fat and optimize contour.
Recovery from a mommy makeover will depend on which procedures are done. Dr. Prysi will go over recovery during the consultation and will provide any necessary post-op care instructions. Total recovery time from a mommy makeover in Fort Myers is shorter than it would be if all procedures were done at separate times.
Recovering from a Mommy Makeover in Naples
One of the important things to remember about mommy makeover recovery is that you will need to rest as much as possible after your surgery. You cannot bend, strain or lift anything, including your children, for several weeks. Dr. Prysi and his team recommend recruiting another adult to help you with child care and other tasks around the house as you recover from surgery.
Mommy makeover recovery varies by patient, but may take several weeks. Dr. Prysi will schedule several follow-up appointments to check your healing progress and clear you to return to work, exercise and your normal routine.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are Mommy Makeovers dangerous?
Mommy makeovers are generally safe so long as the patient does not have underlying health concerns and follows their plastic surgeons advice through the recovery process. During your consultation, you should share your medical history with your plastic surgeon to prevent any complications.
How long does it take to recover from a mommy makeover?
Mommy makeover recovery can range from about one to four weeks. This depends on the specific procedures you include in your mommy makeover and other factors. During a consultation, Dr. Prysi can explain what you can expect.
Can a tummy tuck be considered medically necessary?
A majority of tummy tucks are considered cosmetic. However, in rare cases, the surgery may be considered medically necessary. This applies to patients who experience significant symptoms from diastasis recti, hernias, or back pain.
How many plastic surgeries can be done at once?
It is generally recommended to limit plastic surgeries to two to three procedures at one time.
Do you lose weight after a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover is not intended to be a weight loss procedure. However, patients may lose some weight during the procedure due to the removal of excess skin or fat during liposuction.
