It is no secret that childbirth is stressful on the body. Women’s bodies change rapidly and side effects from developing a child manifest themselves in the form of stretch marks, loose skin, unwanted weight gain, and vaginal tearing. Luckily, procedures can be performed to help us replicate our pre-pregnancy body with ease. Dr. Cusimano offers the mommy makeover combination surgery to help women feel more confident. But many women wonder when the right time to get a mommy makeover is. Here are the facts that you need to know about the mommy makeover.
Before consulting with a surgeon or physician, you should understand the limitations of the mommy-makeover procedure and what results to expect. As any pregnant woman knows, the expansion of your stomach and sudden weight gain can damage the tissue and muscles located within your abdomen. While these areas will shrink once your baby has been delivered, they won’t return to their previous size without help. Thousands of women have bounced back after their pregnancy with the assistance of a mommy makeover. After the recovery process has been completed and swelling has gone down, women find that their post-baby body is nearly identical to their pre-pregnancy shape.
WHAT CAN THE MOMMY MAKEOVER DO?
In short, the mommy makeover is geared towards women that want to have the best body possible after bringing a child into the world. While it may not be an exact science, it can drastically improve self-confidence, sexuality, and the ability to feel comfortable in your skin. Located below are some of the concerns that the mommy makeover can address:
- Adjust uneven breasts
- Tighten loose skin
- Remove unwanted fat
- Fade scars
- Repair abdominal stretching
- Improve vaginal appearance
- Restore self-esteem
PREGNANCY AFTER SURGERY
While it’s entirely possible to conceive after you’ve received a mommy makeover, it’s highly unadvised. The damage, stretching and weight gain that occurred during your first pregnancy will arise again if you become pregnant. Knowing this, surgeons and healthcare professionals advise their patients to wait until they’ve had all the children they desire before going under the knife.
For women that are on the fence about this procedure, realize that your beauty and your body are under your control. If you have kids and want to bounce back and recapture your youth, the mommy makeover is here to help you regain your confidence and make you feel like you again.
