Having a child can be one of the most rewarding and incredible times in a woman’s life. However, it can also be extremely demanding on the body. Combine hormonal fluctuations with post-baby body changes, and you may be longing to get your body back! Despite healthy eating habits during and after pregnancy, hormonal changes play a role in affecting weight in the thigh and stomach regions. Many women also experience changes in their breasts such as decreased or increased volume. Although these physical changes may seem insurmountable, there is hope. One option for success is the Mommy Makeover.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a personalized combination of procedures designed to restore the patient’s body from the physical stressors of childbirth. Some of the procedure options include:
- Breast augmentation, lift or reduction- These procedures help to restore volume and shape to the breasts.
- Tummy Tuck– This procedure removes excess fat and skin, helping to create a smoother and firmer abdomen.
- Liposuction- This procedure removes excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body.
- Non-Invasive Skin Tightening- This procedure uses a laser to tighten loose skin.
Mommy Makeover Expectations
Dr. Pollard meets with each patient to ensure a Mommy Makeover experience that is in alignment with the patient’s personalized goals for the surgery and her body. Being a mom means that you are always on the go and juggling a million different things at once. This procedure will require you to slow down, but it will not keep you off your feet for too long. Most women return to their daily activities within two to six weeks of the procedure. It is advised to avoid all forms of exercise and heavy lifting for approximately six weeks.
