Becoming a mother can be one of life’s greatest accomplishments and joys; however, many women experience a variety of physical changes after child birth that may be difficult to reverse with just a healthy diet and exercise. A mommy makeover is any combination of cosmetic procedures that restore your before-pregnancy appearance, typically focusing on the breasts and abdomen. A typical makeover might include a tummy tuck, a breast procedure such as an augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction reduction and liposuction. The term “mommy makeover” may be new, but the procedures involved have a long, successful, and safe track record. Patients can typically expect anywhere from one to three weeks of recovery from the most invasive procedures.
When to Consider a Mommy Makeover
