As a new mother, it can be jarring to see the transformation of your body after pregnancy. Bringing a life into the world is a monumental and special moment, but being unhappy with your appearance can damage your self-confidence.
After pregnancy, you may notice loose skin, sagging and deflated breasts, and separated abdominal muscles.
A Mommy Makeover can help restore your pre-pregnancy appearance, which may make you feel more confident as a mother.
What Should I Know About a Mommy Makeover Procedure?
A Mommy Makeover is a personalized set of procedures that target the breasts, abdomen, buttocks, and other areas affected by pregnancy or childbirth.
With this in mind, here is what you should know to best prepare for your Mommy Makeover procedure:
Establish Clear Goals Regarding Your Mommy Makeover
Each Mommy Makeover procedure is different depending on the patient. Before deciding to have a Mommy Makeover, you must determine what problem areas you would like to correct.
During your consultation, Dr. Bridges will help you decide which procedures would be best to include in your Mommy Makeover.
Have Realistic Outcomes for the Procedure
A Mommy Makeover cannot completely restore your body to its pre-baby look.
The procedure will improve your appearance, but it cannot erase the immense amount of stress your body endured over 40 tumultuous weeks.
You should enter into the procedure with an open mind and realistic expectations.
Be in Good Overall Health
Before your Mommy Makeover, it is critical to be in good overall health. A Mommy Makeover is an extensive procedure that combines two or more procedures in one sitting.
It is important to have no medical conditions that could increase complications during and after the procedure.
Be at a Stable Weight Before the Surgery
A Mommy Makeover is not a weight loss procedure. Before deciding to have a Mommy Makeover, make sure you are content with your weight.
Ask for Time Off Work
Since a Mommy Makeover is extensive, you should prepare extra time to recover and heal properly.
This may mean asking for more time off work or planning for extra care around the house.
Be patient with your body, and do not rush your recovery process.
