While welcoming a new family member brings tremendous joy, you may not feel joyful about the changes that pregnancy and childbirth have caused to your body. A mommy makeover helps you reclaim your pre-baby body. A healthy lifestyle may help you get back to your previous shape, but sagging skin and some other problems can only be corrected with surgery.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Each mommy makeover follows a customized treatment plan developed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. A mommy makeover generally includes a tummy tuck and a breast lift or augmentation. It may also include a wide range of other procedures such as liposuction, facial procedures, and non-surgical treatments. The stresses of pregnancy and motherhood can take their toll on your face as well as your body.
Because a mommy makeover can include many different procedures and treatments, so achieving an accurate estimate is difficult. If you have a typical mommy makeover, you can expect costs to range from $14,000 to $25,000. This will include anesthesia, medications, or related fees. Schedule a consultation and meet with your plastic surgeon to determine how much you can expect to pay.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?
A mommy makeover can include almost anything that will help you restore your pre-baby body and confidence. Since pregnancy often causes loose skin, accumulated fat, and abdominal muscle separation, so a tummy tuck is a vital part of your mommy makeover. Breasts may sag and lose volume, so the procedure often includes breast augmentation, lift, or both. Your surgeon usually uses liposuction to help you achieve your desired contours and shape.
Recovery time varies depending on the procedures performed. You can expect some swelling and soreness, especially for the first few days, and you may need help with everyday tasks. Most people can resume light activities and return to work in one to three weeks. After this time, you can gradually add more activities as your plastic surgeon approves them.
What Results Will I See With A Mommy Makeover?
As swelling begins to fade, you will see a flatter, tighter abdomen, more sculpted curves, and rejuvenated breasts. The results you see immediately after your procedure will change as you heal. You may need to wait three to six months before your swelling resolves, and you can see the full results of your mommy makeover.
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
If you have been pregnant and want to restore the body you had before, you might be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. Ideal candidates are in good health and do not smoke. You should wait six months to a year after giving birth to plan your procedure. If you plan to become pregnant in the future, we recommend that you wait to have your mommy makeover until afterward.
I had breast augmentation done in November, it’s been 3 months, and I am loving the results. Dr. Sozer did an amazing job and the staff was very friendly.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
Yo estoy super contenta y satisfecha con los servicios recibidos en El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. El Dr. Sozer es muy profesional, me dio muchísima confianza desde el principio y contesto todas mis dudas y preguntas. Todo su personal es muy amable, las chicas en recepción y las enfermeras muy serviciales. Absolutamente creo que es el mejor lugar para obtener una cirugía cosmética. Estoy super contenta con los resultados de mi Mommy Makeover y de otros tratamientos que obtuve en mi rostro, sobrepaso mis expectativas en todos los aspectos. Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
