You want a mommy makeover. Or you think you do. But you have questions — and lots of them. This includes The Big Question, should I have the procedure, at all? Dr. Christopher Verbin — and the entire staff at SB Aesthetics — want to give you the information you need to make the right decision for your body, whatever that might be. A mommy makeover is not the right choice for every woman. But for women who qualify, the surgery can be truly transformative for both the body and spirit.
Here’s what a mommy makeover can do for the right candidate. The surgery can lift your breasts and eliminate drooping and sagging, restoring a beautiful breast appearance. It can create a smooth, toned and sculpted appearance in your abs, allowing you to look as healthy as you feel. The treatment can also contour your body, destroying pockets of stubborn fat and giving you the wow-worthy contours you might have thought you would never have again. But let’s get to your questions now so you can begin planning for your mommy makeover surgery.
Which procedures should I include in my mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover might include a number of procedures, depending on what your body needs to look its best. The most often selected surgeries are:
- Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty — restores smooth skin and tightens muscles in your abdominals to erase the effects of childbearing and rapid weight loss
- Breast lift — this surgery improves the position and shape of your breasts, without changing your breast volume
- Breast augmentation — by choosing to have implants, you can correct a loss of breast volume and enjoy highly-attractive results
- Breast reduction — excess skin, glandular tissue and fat can be exactingly removed, when necessary, to give you a breast size that is ideal for your frame and lifestyle
- Liposuction — this fat-reducing technique pairs exceptionally well with many of the surgeries typically performed during a mommy makeover, enhancing your entire results
- Skin and body treatments — you can have many additional cosmetic treatments with your mommy makeover, such as a Brazilian butt lift, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, dermal fillers or Botox® to complete your look
Let’s give you the direct answer to your question you deserve, however; you should have whichever treatments you will need to look great again. One of the primary advantages of a mommy makeover is that you can combine procedures for faster and more complete results. If you think a technique will enhance your look, you should seriously contemplate including it in your mommy makeover now. Still unsure? Ask Dr. Verbin for straight, unbiased advice on how to proceed.
How long should I plan for my recovery?
A tummy tuck is a major surgery that requires an incision across your abdomen, an area of the body that contributes to virtually all physical activity. As a result of your tummy tuck surgery, you will need to limit activity significantly — but temporarily — during your mommy makeover recovery. This period typically lasts about six weeks. However, during this time, you will also be able to recover from all your additional procedures, which can save you months of recovery time, overall. Your investment in your procedure and recovery will significantly contribute to your safety as well as your beautiful results.
Will I have a lot of scarring after my procedure?
You will have scarring; however, Dr. Verbin will do everything possible to limit and conceal it, so it does not detract from your beautiful results. For example, your breast surgery will locate your incisions in the breast crease, and your tummy tuck will use a low-abdominal incision that can be easily hidden by clothing. Also, all scars will fade over time, so your look will continue to improve. Most women find the overwhelming benefits of a mommy makeover surgery far outweigh the likelihood of scarring and choose to have their procedure.
When should I schedule my mommy makeover surgery?
You will enjoy the best results possible if you have your surgery after you have finished having children. This recommendation perhaps seems pretty apparent to you. After all, you are considering having a mommy makeover to reverse the many natural effects of childbearing. However, deciding to conclude your childbearing years is an equally huge decision to make. You should give yourself enough time to be sure that you do not want to give birth to another child first, before seeking surgery. You can always choose to have a mommy makeover later. By giving yourself ample time to think these choices through, you can dramatically increase your long-term satisfaction.
Should I have a mommy makeover procedure?
And why should I choose Dr. Christopher Verbin to perform my surgery if I do?
The choice of whether or not to have surgery is an extremely personal one. And only you can make that choice for yourself. To make this decision, however, you first must have all the facts. But you need more than this. You expect the advice of a professional who is determined to help you make the right choice for your body, not convince you to have any particular surgery. After all, more is at stake than your look; your health and long-term wellbeing are also significant factors.
