WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
Even though childbirth is a beautiful, wonderous process for many women, it can dramatically change skin tightness, body fat distribution, and the shape of certain body parts. This leaves many women feeling more than a little frustrated. But now, it’s possible to attain a slimmer, tighter, and more toned physique thanks to a personalized mommy makeover performed at Tyler Frew MD, Plastic Surgery. Plastic surgeon Dr. Tyler Frew regularly works with women in Murrieta, Upland, and Claremont, CA who want to regain their pre-pregnancy shape with a personalized mommy makeover.
This surgical procedure uses a blend of fat removal and skin tightening to reshape the breasts, stomach, buttocks, and thighs — essentially any body part affected by childbirth and nursing. Furthermore, nonsurgical treatments can be incorporated to enhance outcomes to smooth surface irregularities, such as stretch marks, caused by the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the tissue and skin during pregnancy. If you’d like to learn what a mommy makeover can do for you, contact our Murrieta, CA office today to schedule a private consultation.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
Ideal candidates for the mommy makeover are those who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth and have tried to gain a slimmer, tighter figure through diet and exercise with little result. For many women, surgical intervention is necessary to regain their pre-pregnancy body. If you’re past childbearing and are dissatisfied with the side effects left from pregnancy — such as sagging breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, or buttocks — then a mommy makeover procedure could be perfect for you. The overall goal of Dr. Frew is to help you regain your pre-pregnancy body so you can get back to living life without feeling self-conscious.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
A mommy makeover is an excellent cosmetic solution to help women regain their pre-baby look by combining multiple procedures at the same time. Some of the benefits of a mommy makeover include:
- Tighter, firmer tummy
- Perkier, younger-looking breasts
- A slimmer, more toned profile
- Reduced stretch marks
- Tightening loose skin
- Removing unwanted fat
- Boosting confidence
HOW IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER PERFORMED?
The mommy makeover procedure is a body contouring treatment that Dr. Frew customizes for patients based on the areas of concern to be corrected. Many procedures can be paired together, including breast lifts, breast implants, tummy tucks, liposuction, and fat grafting. For mommy makeover surgeries, patients are usually under general anesthesia. These procedures typically take around 3 – 7 hours depending on the complexity of surgeries chosen. Also, a day-long stay at the hospital may be necessary. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, such as laser treatments and injectables, to soften facial wrinkles and diminish surface irregularities.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
After leaving the hospital, you’ll begin your recovery at home with rest. Recovering from this surgery is generally a slow process. Moving around and walking straight will be hard for the first couple of weeks, and you’ll need to carefully follow an at-home healing protocol in order to make sure the incisions heal properly. For the majority of patients, the healing phase takes about six months. Even though this recovery could take months, most patients are able to get back to a somewhat normal routine within a couple of weeks. You should avoid working out for approximately two months. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at Tyler Frew MD, Plastic Surgery can make an incredible difference for many women by helping them get their self-confidence back.
MOMMY MAKEOVER FAQ
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs vary depending on which procedures are part of your surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Frew will need to develop your treatment plan before he can estimate the cost of your mommy makeover. A mommy makeover is an investment in your confidence after pregnancy and childbirth, so it’s best to focus on reaching your goals rather than shopping for the lowest cost. Tyler Frew MD, Plastic Surgery accepts several payment methods, and we can provide information on low-interest medical financing to help make your mommy makeover more affordable.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation with Dr. Frew, he’ll listen to your needs and concerns before examining your body. Following this, he can advise you on what to include in your surgical plan. Most women want a breast surgery (augmentation or a lift) with liposuction and a body lift.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover can help you attain a beautiful new figure, it does leave surgical scars. Dr. Frew will create small, clean incisions, most of which he’ll place discretely so they can be hidden with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your recovery care instructions, Dr. Frew or a member of his team will go over scar care to help your incisions heal properly.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until childbearing is complete so as to avoid compromising your results. Generally, all treated areas of your body are at risk for changing if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. Should you have another child after your mommy makeover, however, Dr. Frew can perform a second surgery to refresh your results.
