Get Your Confidence Back

Some women may consider plastic surgery because they wish to feel more comfortable in a swimsuit. Others may choose to do it because they want their clothes to fit again. No matter the reason, mommy makeovers have become a very popular topic among mothers, and for good reason.

Returning to Your Pre-Baby Body

Being a mother is a beautiful experience, but pregnancy and breastfeeding can change the body. These changes primarily affect the silhouette of the abdomen and breasts.

A mommy makeover with post-pregnancy body contouring specialist Dr. Anureet Bajaj will give you back your youthful, pre-childbirth body, making that long-awaited desire a reality and getting you poolside ready.

A mommy makeover is not a single surgery, but the name dubbed for a combination of body and breast procedures designed to help mothers regain the contour they enjoyed prior to having children. We know not all mothers are the same, so no two mommy makeovers are alike. Mommy makeovers are tailored to meet each mother’s individual aesthetic wants and wishes. Patients have the option to choose from a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, breast augmentation, and/or breast reduction, and each procedure is customized to address that mother’s specific case. And even though the aforementioned are the ‘standard’ mommy makeover procedures, you are welcome to add facial treatments or procedures as well for an overall makeover.

When a woman is pregnant, many changes occur to our bodies. The abdomen stretches to allow the baby to grow, and the breasts become larger as they become engorged with milk. Once the baby is born, hormonal changes will occur again and the skin will contract to varying degrees to return to the pre-pregnancy contour. Some women may be left with excess lax skin on the stomach, stretched abdominal muscles that exercise cannot tighten, and deflated, sagging breasts from breastfeeding. These are the exact aesthetic concerns that a mommy makeover is designed to battle when diet and exercise do not produce the desired results. And we know that time is precious, so with fantastic advances in cosmetic technology and surgical procedures, moms can get back to caring for and chasing after their children in no time!

It is never too soon to think about it, but mothers seeking a mommy makeover should be done having children, finished breastfeeding, and wait for their breasts to go back to their natural shape and size before scheduling a mommy makeover consultation – usually about 6 months after they have stopped breast feeding. These moms should be close to their ideal weight for optimal results since these treatments aim to improve definition and figure, not weight loss. Patients considering a mommy makeover must also take into consideration the time they must take off from work and caring for the kids to fully recover. It is important to have a family member or friend help look after the children and house during this time.

It is also important that patients have realistic expectations of what these procedures can accomplish. A mommy makeover is not a weight loss solution, but rather body sculpting. You may lose a little bit of weight inadvertently, but that is not the goal of a mommy makeover. These procedures are meant to enhance your figure and restore your body to its pre-childbirth and breastfeeding state.

Specific recovery protocol is dependent on your individual case. Once your mommy makeover is complete, any breast procedures will require dressings and a support bra to help your new bust size and shape comfortably form to its new contour. In some cases, drains are placed for excess fluids. Abdominal procedures require dressings and a compression garment wrapped around the treatment area, and drains are generally used as well. Most procedures are performed as an outpatient. Recovery time varies depending on your anatomy, the surgeries you underwent, and the extent of each procedure.

Mothers can generally expect to be out of work for 1-2 weeks, depending on the individual case. Please make sure you have someone to help at home to watch after your kid(s), and also help you with your mommy makeover recovery protocol (cleaning drains, etc.) Swelling will take several weeks to subside, but some results can be seen immediately. Make sure to exercise regularly and eat a proper diet for lasting results. Becoming pregnant after your mommy makeover may alter your results.

The cost of your mommy makeover will depend on the breast and body procedures you choose to undergo. Price will change with the addition of ancillary procedures or treatments. Dr. Bajaj will gladly provide you with an estimate during your initial consultation. We, at Bajaj Plastic Surgery, look forward to helping you begin your journey to reverse the clock and regain that youthful figure.
