There are many factors that go into deciding the right time to undergo mommy makeover. Ultimately, you should schedule surgery once you feel confident in your choice of treatment and surgeon. That said, many women find that there are several advantages to undergoing mommy makeover during the fall season, also known as back-to-school season. Dr. Carlos Chacon of Divino Plastic Surgery sees an influx of women at his office once school is back in session. Here are two reasons why.
Recover While the Kids Are Away
The first reason is that the household is usually a little quieter and parents have more time to themselves, since all of the summer vacations and festivities have come and gone and the kids are back in school. This extra peace and quiet is beneficial when recovering from mommy makeover. The initial recovery period for mommy makeover takes one to two weeks. During this time, you will need to abstain from most everyday activities to allow your body to heal. With your kids back in school, you will be free to sleep and rest during the day, which is very important to a successful recovery from mommy makeover. In addition, you may want to enlist the help of a loved one to pick your kids up from school and care for them in the evenings, so you can focus on healing.
The Holidays Are Right Around the Corner
The second reason many women like to have mommy makeover surgery during the back-to-school season is the duration of recovery. While most side effects resolve during the first two weeks of recovery, it can take several months for your body to fully heal and your results to become visible. If you have breast implants placed, it will take several months for them to settle into a more natural position. In addition, it takes time for scars at your incision sites to fade. Scheduling mommy makeover during the back-to-school season gives your body enough time to heal just in time for the holidays.
Procedures Included in a Mommy Makeover
Mommy makeover is a multi-step treatment that combines two or more cosmetic procedures that address the cosmetic changes brought on by pregnancy and nursing. No two mommy makeovers are alike. Dr. Chacon uses his advanced experience and training to develop treatment plans customized to the unique needs and goals of each woman. Here are the procedures that can be included in a mommy makeover:
- Liposuction to reduce pockets of stubborn fat on the back, thighs, buttocks, arms, breasts, abdomen and other body areas.
- Tummy tuck to eliminate excess, loose abdominal skin and repair weakened or separated muscles.
- Breast lift to raise saggy breasts and downward pointing nipples.
- Breast augmentation to add volume and shape to small or deflated breasts.
