What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast enhancement, and liposuction form the core of a typical mommy makeover.
A tummy tuck removes loose abdominal skin and fat using an incision hidden as low as possible on your abdomen. Your LPS surgeon will also tighten or repair the abdominal muscles that become stretched or separated during pregnancy.
Breast lifting, sometimes with a breast augmentation, corrects the sagging and loss of volume that can occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Your breasts can look even better than they did before your pregnancy.
You can have liposuction almost anywhere on your body where you have stubborn fat or want a more sculpted figure. You may also choose to have procedures including a labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation. You may even choose to have dermal fillers or other facial treatments for complete rejuvenation.
What is Recovery Like From a Mommy Makeover?
Your surgeon will develop a recovery plan based on the procedures included in your mommy makeover. If you have a tummy tuck, you can expect to need a few weeks off from most activities. Additional procedures add very little recovery time, so having several procedures at once means you do not have to recover from each one separately.
