Motherhood is one of the most beautiful, fulfilling, and all-around joyous experiences that any woman could have. Unfortunately, no one ever said it would be easy.
Giving birth to one or more children places just as much stress on your body as it does to your nerves, will-power, and emotional stability. The childbearing process (from pregnancy to delivery to breastfeeding) changes the look and shape of your body. Skin stretches, fat pockets form, breasts sag, and, sadly, these changes do not always remedy themselves.
Luckily, a Mommy Makeover can improve the regions of your body that may have been impacted by the rigorous trials of childbearing. This comprehensive surgical procedure combines a series of breast and body enhancement procedures to restore multiple areas of the body.
Will a Mommy Makeover Give Me My Figure Back?
A Mommy Makeover, just like its individual parts, does wonders in restoring and sculpting a trim, firm, and desirably curvaceous silhouette. This procedure will improve the definition of your physique; however, it cannot guarantee or claim that you will look exactly as you did before your pregnancy.
Many women find that their contours are restored to how they were before, and some women even regain physiques that are slimmer than what they previously had, but there is no guarantee.
What Does a Combination Procedure Mean?
A combination surgical procedure is precisely what it sounds like. The Mommy Makeover includes two or more plastic surgery techniques that target the areas most affected by childbearing. This often includes some variation of:
- Breast lift surgery, to elevate sagging breasts and reposition downward-pointing nipples
- Breast augmentation, to restore volume to deflated breasts
- Liposuction techniques, to eliminate fat pockets on the abdomen, flanks, and surrounding areas
- Tummy tuck surgery, to tighten abdominal skin and muscles
Because this procedure is tailored to you, no two Mommy Makeovers are exactly the same. See how the Mommy Makeover can benefit you by calling Dr. Morales to set up a consultation.
How Should I Prepare for My Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeover surgery is an invasive process, and women should ensure that they are both mentally and physically prepared for the procedure.
Before undergoing a Mommy Makeover, you should complete the following:
- Finish breastfeeding
- Get close to your ideal body weight
- Confirm that you do not want an additional pregnancy(s)
- Undergo a medical evaluation to confirm that you are healthy enough to undergo this surgery
- Temporarily (or permanently) give up smoking and all blood-thinning medications and supplements
When Should I Choose to Undergo My Mommy Makeover?
While the term Mommy Makeover may give off the impression that it is to be performed soon after your pregnancy, many women choose to undergo this procedure years after having their final child.
Truthfully, there is no “correct” time to undergo this procedure. Some women benefit from it when their children are young while others hold off until their children have gone to college, and they can finally regain some “me” time.
The primary consideration of candidacy depends on whether or not you want additional pregnancies. It is not recommended to choose this surgery before you are finished with your childbearing process, as any further pregnancy will reverse the quality of the results.
What Does Mommy Makeover Surgery Cost in Dallas, TX?
There are a lot of puzzle pieces involved with your surgery, and, therefore, there is no easy way to estimate the total cost of your Mommy Makeover before undergoing a consultation.
The overall price of this procedure will be determined by the techniques combined, surgeon’s fees, facility fees, anesthesia fees, pre-surgical tests, post-surgical dressings, and all post-operative appointments.
While you can expect a significant estimate, many women find that their results far outweigh the financial cost.
Financing options are available to help you cover the price of your Mommy Makeover.
