What is a Mommy Makeover?
The gift of motherhood is one of the greatest and most satisfying experiences of a woman’s life. You watch your children develop and express their charm, wit, and humor each day. Some days, though, the joy is set aside for a wish list of changes that you want to make to your body. Unfortunately, diet and exercise may not be enough to reverse the physical effects of pregnancy and childbirth. A mommy makeover by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David B. Brothers, may be just what you need!
Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a customized combination of procedures that help restore your body after pregnancy and childbirth. Dr. Brothers works with you to find the surgical and non-surgical solutions for:
- Eliminating excess fat and cellulite on your body
- Restoring your natural curves
- Improving skin tone and texture on your face and body
- Reducing signs of aging
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
We recommend that you tone and tighten your body as much as possible through diet and exercise before considering a mommy makeover. You should also wait until you have your last child because any future pregnancies can be detrimental to the results of the procedures.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having a Mommy Makeover?
The first step when considering a mommy makeover is to meet with Dr. Brothers for a consultation. He will recommend the cosmetic procedures that will best help you regain your pre-pregnancy body, such as:
In addition to recommending specific procedures, Dr. Brothers also outlines the schedule of your mommy makeover. Some surgeries may be performed simultaneously while others are performed over time. This approach minimizes your downtime and recovery.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Mommy Makeover?
When the day of your mommy makeover arrives, our staff ensures that you feel confident and excited about your procedures. Dr. Brothers will review the surgical plan with you prior to entering the operating room. Our medical staff monitors your progress throughout the entire process.
How Long Does It Take to Perform a Mommy Makeover?
The surgical time for your mommy makeover depends on the specific procedures that you are having done during the appointment. Dr. Brothers provides these details during the consultation and before the surgery.
What to Expect After a Mommy Makeover
Recovery from a mommy makeover can take a few weeks or months depending on the procedures that you have done. The most important aspect of your aftercare is being patient with your body and having someone available to help you with your day-to-day activities while you rest at home.
Will I Have Scars After Getting a Mommy Makeover?
Whenever possible, the incisions for the mommy makeover procedures are placed so that the scars are less noticeable or hidden by your clothing. Scars can take up to one year to fade, but the scars do not completely disappear. Dr. Brothers reviews incision placement and the resulting scars during your consultation appointment.
When Will I See Results?
You will see some immediate results, but the full results of your mommy makeover can take a few months or longer.
How Long Will the Results of a Mommy Makeover Last?
The results of your mommy makeover are long lasting. Weight changes and the aging process will affect your body, but with proper diet and exercise, you can enjoy the improvements for many years.
