Motherhood is a beautiful gift, but it takes a toll on the body. Renova Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa offers mommy makeover procedures to help patients reverse the effects of pregnancy and restore youthfulness to their figure. We offer this treatment to the residents of Pittsburgh, PA and surrounding areas.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a surgical body sculpting treatment that incorporates several cosmetic techniques to produce comprehensive improvements in a patient’s figure. The mommy makeover is intended to help women reverse the many effects of pregnancy, whether it is changes in the breasts, stubborn fat, or loose skin.
While commonly used by mothers looking to return to their pre-pregnancy bodies, the mommy makeover treatment can be an option for any patient experiencing these concerns. Dr. Clavijo can help you determine the types of techniques that you should include in your mommy makeover, which may include treatments like:
Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?
If you would like to reverse the signs of aging and pregnancy by restoring the breasts, abdominal region or other areas of the body, you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover.
Since each treatment is entirely customized, any patient who has multiple concerns is often a great candidate for this treatment. However, patients are recommended to prolong their mommy makeover procedure until they no longer plan on having children, as pregnancy will impact the results of the procedure.
How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
The mommy makeover procedure is performed with general anesthesia. This means that you will be asleep and entirely comfortable for the procedure. However, the exact treatment will vary significantly depending on the types of surgical techniques involved.
In all cases, Dr. Clavijo makes every effort to minimize the size and visibility of any scarring. You can learn more about what your mommy makeover might be like by exploring the pages of the treatments involved or by visiting our office for a consultation.
What is the Recovery From a Mommy Makeover Like?
The recovery process after a mommy makeover will vary depending on the extent of surgery performed. Swelling and scarring may take several months to fade completely. Patients are encouraged to take a week or more off of work and other obligations. You will not be able to exercise or perform other physically demanding activities for at least one month after your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from a Mommy Makeover?
The results from your mommy makeover will be visible as soon as any post-operative swelling and bruising fade. Many patients enjoy the improved contours and youthful appearance of their new figure, as well as the significant boost in confidence that comes with it.
The results from the mommy makeover procedure can be long-lasting and even permanent, depending on your diet and exercise habits. Patients are encouraged to practice healthy lifestyle habits to maintain their results.
