14 Mar Mommy Makeover Tips And Take Aways
After pregnancy and childbirth, it is extremely common for women to feel dissatisfied with the changes their bodies have gone through. After all, the process of pregnancy followed by childbirth is a major ordeal for the human body. Dr. John Park and his staff of highly trained professionals believe that motherhood shouldn’t mean giving up your self-confidence. Allow us to respond to some of our patients’ most frequently asked questions about mommy makeovers to help you better understand your options for rejuvenating your figure.
After My Final Pregnancy, How Long Is It Suggested To Wait Before My Mommy Makeover?
It is recommended to wait a minimum of six months after completing their families before undergoing body contouring surgery. The body needs time to adjust after pregnancy. Some skin looseness may resolve itself after a couple of months, while pregnancy hormones which can affect the way your body responds to surgery need to reduce to normal levels. It is also recommended that you give yourself enough time after pregnancy to reach your goal weight.
Although body contouring can improve the appearance of your figure, the procedures offered as part of a mommy makeover are not intended as weight loss alternatives. Take a few months to get into a regular exercise routine and establish a healthy diet so that you are at or near your ideal body weight before your mommy makeover.
What exactly does a mommy makeover entail?
A mommy makeover is a customized set of procedures designed to rejuvenate your figure after completing your family. While there are some standard procedures that are usually included, Dr. Park’s main goal is to address the issues that you are most concerned with. A tummy tuck can tighten and tone the abdominal muscles, remove fat and tighten the abdominal skin. Liposuction can treat persistent fat that lingers around the stomach, love handles, thighs or anywhere else on the body for a more slender figure. Breast enhancement can lift the breasts to a more youthful position, improve breast shape, provide a boost in volume or reduce breast size to improve your proportions.
The options are many. All these points combine to help you get the best outcome possible.
What Benefit Is Liposuction In A Mommy makeover?
Including liposuction in your mommy makeover procedure can deliver the most comprehensive midsection contouring results. Because many women have trouble shedding fat in the stomach, liposuction is a common requirement for reducing unwanted areas of fat. Liposuction is able to target specific areas giving back the natural contour of the abs and stomach.
How Long Will A Mommy Makeover Last?
All procedures typically included in a mommy makeover are designed to produce long-lasting results. However, your body will continue to respond to factors such as age, weight fluctuations, and any future pregnancies.
Again, the recommendation is that women wait until they have completed their families before considering a mommy makeover, as the results will most certainly be affected by future pregnancies.
