Mommy makeover is one of the most transformative and rewarding procedures Dr. Carlos Chacon offers at Divino Plastic Surgery. By improving areas of a woman’s body most affected by having children and breastfeeding, mommy makeover helps mothers feel confident in how they look.
In this post, Dr. Chacon answers commonly asked questions about mommy makeover.
What does a mommy makeover involve?
Your mommy makeover will be personalized to address the specific areas of your body that you would like to improve.
Depending on your goals, your mommy makeover could include any of the following procedures:
- Breast lift to reposition flat, sagging breasts higher on the chest
- Breast augmentation to restore volume and shape to small or asymmetrical breasts
- Abdominoplasty to tighten and tone the abdomen
- Liposuction to eliminate stubborn fat deposits around the body
Dr. Chacon will help you select the combination of procedures that will help you achieve your personal aesthetic goals, based on a physical examination and discussion of your needs.
When should I time my mommy makeover?
Ideally, you should time your mommy makeover after you are done having children. You should allow your body time to stabilize and recover from pregnancy and childbirth before seeking surgery. This helps Dr. Chacon accurately assess your body and plan out the most precise treatment.
Are mommy makeover procedures performed individually or combined into one operation?
Some women opt to combine their breast and abdominal procedures into one operation; others prefer to stage out the procedures into separate operations. The decision is up to you and Dr. Chacon.
What is the mommy makeover recovery like?
Recovery varies from patient to patient and depends on the individual treatment plan. Generally, recovery time ranges from two to six weeks. Most patients can resume work at the two-week mark. Strenuous activities including exercise can be resumed approximately four to six weeks after surgery.
How long will my mommy makeover results last?
You can enjoy your mommy makeover results as long as you maintain your weight and commit to a healthy lifestyle. Gaining a significant amount of weight or having children after mommy makeover can reverse some of the positive benefits of surgery.
