Even when you’re sticking to a healthy diet and exercise plan to help you get your pre-baby body back, sometimes those methods can only get you so far. Because pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect the laxity of your skin, muscles and breast tissue, plastic surgery procedures are often the only way to address some of the common cosmetic concerns that are unique to mothers.
But just because you want comprehensive results doesn’t mean you’ll have to schedule multiple procedures, either. There are a few reasons why a mommy makeover, which combines different plastic surgery options in a single appointment, might be your ideal solution.
1. Customize Your Procedure
Every woman is going to require an individualized approach to address her unique needs. While breast augmentation, a breast lift and a tummy tuck are the most common procedures that make up a mommy makeover, you can customize which ones to include in your treatment plan to best meet your specific goals, including liposuction or CoolSculpting® for problem spots, ThermiVa non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, and more.
2. Cut Down on Recovery Time
When you combine procedures into one surgery through a mommy makeover, you can expect a much shorter recovery time than would be possible if you were to opt for each treatment separately. This can be especially advantageous for mothers of young children who don’t want to schedule more downtime than necessary.
3. Boost Your Self-Confidence
When it comes down to it, when you look your best, you feel your best, too. A mommy makeover can help you regain a positive self-image following pregnancy, boosting your self-esteem and helping you live life to the fullest.
