When you discovered you would be a mother, it was one of the most joyful moments of your life. The next nine months took you on an incredible journey as the little one inside of you grew. Your body changed as your baby changed. You put on weight, especially around the midsection. Your breasts enlarged. It all happened for a reason, preparing you for the delivery of your little one. On the day you held your baby for the first time, the changes in your body were the last thing on your mind. It’s a different story over a year later. You’ve worked hard to reclaim your figure. You began with regular exercise, focusing on areas that were affected most by pregnancy. You changed diet. You saw the excess weight melt away quickly. However, you haven’t been able to get your body to snap back to the way it looked before pregnancy changed your life forever. You’ve decided a mommy makeover in CT could be the answer for you.
What is Included in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a surgical procedure that takes a combination approach to target the most common trouble spots after pregnancy. Our plastic surgeon will address issues with your bust with breast augmentation. A tummy tuck will enhance your midsection. If you have tried without success to look like you did before your little one came along, our plastic surgeon can help you to reach your goals one step at a time. Both procedures will be performed in one day.
Breast Augmentation Can Give You Fuller, More Shapely Breasts
It’s a normal part of pregnancy to see your bust get bigger. This change is in preparation for breastfeeding. If you choose to nurse, your breasts will continue to be larger throughout that period. Once you stop nursing, you’ll notice that your breasts are going to become smaller. Your diet and exercise efforts may trim them down even more. Many women feel like their breasts look like balloons without any air after pregnancy. Our plastic surgeon can insert breast implants in your breasts to give them a comeback. You can get back to your natural size that you used to be or you can give them more of a boost. You will need to decide if you want silicone or saline implants.
A Tummy Tuck Can Give You a Tight, Flat Midsection
Our plastic surgeon in CT will choose a tummy tuck to improve your abdomen if you are dealing with more than excess fat. Liposuction takes care of fat deposits. A tummy tuck will eliminate flabby skin, excess fat, and tighten your abdominal muscles. Our plastic surgeon will begin by making an incision that stretches across your body. It will start at one hip and end at end at the other. Excess skin will be removed. The surgeon will use liposuction to get rid of fat deposits. The final step of the procedure involves pulling the skin down until your abdomen is tight. Your surgical opening will be sealed, completing your mommy makeover.
What Can You Expect as far as Recovery?
Your body is going to need time to heal after something as involved as a mommy makeover. You should plan on taking at least two weeks off from work. You will need to be patient, listen to your surgeon’s recommendations, and take good care of your surgical site. Your main goal is to avoid infection or injury while you are healing. The sooner you recover, the sooner you can enjoy your new body.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Before you talk to our plastic surgeon about a mommy makeover, you need to think about your health. Are you in good physical condition to go through surgery? If you have any underlying conditions, you need to make sure they will not put you at risk of complications. Your weight should be where you want it to be before considering any plastic surgery that is going to change the size and shape of your figure. If you think you will have more children in the future, it is best to wait to have plastic surgery. Your body will go through similar changes with every pregnancy. You only want to go through a mommy makeover one time. You also need to have realistic expectations about the kind of results you may have. You’ll also need to be willing to accept that your final outcome won’t happen overnight.
