Mom, You Don’t Need Your Old Body Back!Wednesday, August 15, 2018
Mommy makeovers have become routine in modern cosmetic surgery. There are several benefits that a woman can gain when she collaborates with a plastic surgeon who is familiar with the series of procedures that may be involved in a full-body makeover. Often, we hear about a mommy makeover giving a woman back her pre-pregnancy body. At first glance, this can sound like precisely what you want. Looking more closely, you may realize that a mommy makeover can make you look better than you ever have.
Mom, your body has done something amazing. Let’s honor that and your magnificence by redesigning your shape to be all you want it to be. But first, we want to cover some important details.
Preparing Your Body
There is a bit of prep-work that may need to go into a mommy makeover long before the day of surgery. If you are thinking about cosmetic surgery to lift, tighten, and tone, it is beneficial to reach a weight at which you want to stay for the next several years. Ideally, your ideal weight will be maintained for three months before your makeover. This allows your skin ample time to retract on its own and for your body to regulate its metabolic rate so we don’t remove too much or too little fat during liposuction.
Preparing Your Mind
Let’s be honest; a mommy makeover is an intense experience. A single cosmetic procedure can create a bit of emotional turmoil. When we combine multiple procedures, especially ones that alter the appearance of the body so dramatically, it is natural for a woman’s emotions to take a bit of a rollercoaster ride. The first week after surgery, you may not leave your bed very often. You will need help getting to and from the bathroom and into the shower. Someone will need to take care of the kids and the house and the pets. This can be a lot to accept. When you look ahead to your surgery and your recovery, focus on the outcome and on the fact that your need for assistance is only temporary.
