Mommy Makeover Essentials
Work on getting back to that pre-baby body with a mommy makeover! Pregnancy and childbirth can invoke unexpected changes to the body ranging from mild to significant. Discover how a mommy makeover can help you regain your pre-baby confidence and get back into shape.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover isn’t a specific surgical procedure. Rather, it is a combination of different cosmetic treatments tailored to the goals and priorities of each patient, addressing key areas affected by pregnancy. The combination of procedures can include:
Are You a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Are you interested in a mommy makeover? Schedule a consultation with Dr. Kinsley to help determine the best surgery plan for your health and body goals. If you’re concerned about volume loss in your breasts, stubborn stomach fat, or feeling uncomfortable with how childbirth has affected your body, speak with Dr. Kinsley to explore options for a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and vaginal rejuvenation.
Mommy Makeover Preparation and Recovery
Recovery timelines for a mommy makeover can vary, depending on the procedures you decide to include. After breast augmentation, only a couple of days are needed for recovery. After a full tummy tuck, two weeks may be necessary before the patient can return to light work. Full recovery takes six to eight weeks, and then a patient can return to her daily routine and even exercise as normal. Speak with Dr. Kinsley during your initial consultation to walk through potential recovery timelines.
How Safe is a Mommy Makeover?
The risks associated with a mommy makeover depend on the procedures selected. Any cosmetic surgery comes with certain risks, and Dr. Kinsley will be happy to explain the risks associated with any of your options during your consultation.
Will a Mommy Makeover Remove Stretch Marks?
The best way to remove stretch marks is with a tummy tuck procedure. It may be possible to remove marks around the lower abdomen, but some scars in other areas may be out of reach for the tummy tuck to fix. Talk to Dr. Kinsley about the marks you want to address in your consultation and potentially include in your mommy makeover procedure.
Can I Still Have Babies After a Mommy Makeover?
Absolutely! None of the procedures included in a mommy makeover will prevent you from getting pregnant again. If you plan to have more children, you should consider waiting to get a mommy makeover until after you intend to stop for the best long-term results. Liposuction, for example, will not keep you from gaining weight during your next pregnancy.
Will I Have Scars After a Mommy Makeover?
Because a tummy tuck involves the removal of sections of skin, it usually results in scars hidden near the bikini line. To reduce the size of the scar, some women prefer to have a mini tummy tuck. However, the mini tummy tuck can only achieve a limited version of the results possible with a full tummy tuck. With breast augmentation, Dr. Kinsley uses the newest technology to make smaller, more inconspicuous incision sites, even for silicone implants. Once healed, you can wear a bathing suit or sleeveless top without a visible scar.
