Plastic Surgery for Mothers
Having a child is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have in life. However, in the past, going through the pregnancy process often meant having to sacrifice the look of your body. Fortunately, mothers now have the option to restore their youthful, feminine figure from before they had children. With a customized mommy makeover procedure, you can be the great mother you are and feel great about your body.
Ideal Mommy Makeover Candidates
The mommy makeover is the term given to a specialized combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to improve the physical effects of pregnancy. Dr. Robinson recommends that you are through having children before considering a mommy makeover. While the surgery will not harm your ability to have children, future pregnancies can undo the results of your procedure.
The female body goes through several physical changes throughout the pregnancy, birth, and breast feeding processes. Loose, excess skin, stubborn fat, outstretched muscles, and sagging or deflated breasts are all common issues women face after having children. While you may be able to lose most of the baby weight and return to a healthy size, reversing some of the physical effects of pregnancy may not be possible on your own.
A mommy makeover provides a solution to these problems to help mothers take back control of their bodies and enjoy a renewed sense of self-confidence.
Your Own Mommy Makeover
No two mommy makeovers are quite the same, because no two women experience pregnancy quite the same. When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Robinson will carefully analyze your unique situation and listen to what it is you want to achieve. He will work with you to determine which procedures are necessary and will develop a mommy makeover plan that best suits you.
Your mommy makeover will likely consist of a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring surgeries. Procedures that are often involved in a mommy makeover include:
- Breast augmentation: to restore volume that has been lost in the breasts.
- Breast lift: to elevate and reposition the breasts to a more youthful position.
- Tummy tuck: to correct outstretched abdominal muscles and remove loose or excess skin.
- Liposuction: to reduce stubborn pockets of fat throughout the body.
It is important to Dr. Robinson that you are able to achieve the beautiful silhouette you want, while maintaining a natural appearance.
Recovering from a Mommy Makeover
Following your mommy makeover, you will need to take some time to recover. Avoid work and any chores until you feel well enough to avoid any unnecessary complications. Your family will be more than happy to be your support team, so don’t be afraid to let them help out as much as possible!
The recovery time will vary from woman to woman depending on which surgeries were included in her mommy makeover. Combining your procedures into a single surgery will cut down on your overall surgery and recovery time versus having each individual procedure performed separately over time.
While it will take some time to fully recover, the mothers Dr. Robinson has worked with are often overjoyed with the results of their procedure. Having the slim, tight and feminine curves again and feeling comfortable with your body can have significant benefits to a woman’s self-confidence and overall happiness.
