Have you noticed unwanted changes to your body after having children? Many women experience deflated breasts, protruding and sagging stomachs, and loosened vaginal walls after having one or more children. These issues unfortunately can’t be fixed through diet and exercise alone, but we can help with a mommy makeover.
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to restore your body to its pre-baby state. Which procedures you need will be determined during your consultation, where we will listen to your concerns, examine your body, and find the best combination to reach your goals.
Schedule your mommy makeover consultation today by calling Restore Plastic Surgery at 850-500-7527. Our Pensacola office helps women from throughout Florida, nearby Mobile, Alabama, and across the nation.
Common Mommy Makeover Procedures
Some of the most common procedures done in a mommy makeover include:
Pregnancy stretches the skin and muscles of the abdomen, and after childbirth you may be left with loose, protruding abdominal muscles and sagging skin. In addition, hormonal changes and breastfeeding can cause the breasts to deflate and sag. We can help restore a flat, toned stomach and perky breasts through body contouring and breast surgery.
We can also perform vaginal tightening to help prevent leaks and restore sexual feeling. If you’re interested in reducing the size of your labia, we offer labiaplasty as well.
Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
You don't have to be a mother to undergo a mommy makeover, as long as you have some combination of issues that would require multiple surgical procedures. The name “mommy makeover” came about because new mothers often have the same kinds of issues that the same combinations of procedures would address.
The best candidates for a mommy makeover:
- Are finished having children
- Are at least 6 months to a year out from childbirth
- Have lost most of their baby weight
- Are in good overall health
- Have someone readily available to help with their children
- Do not smoke
Recovery from a Mommy Makeover
Your recovery will depend on how many procedures you had done and how complex your surgery was. Most patients are able to return to work after 1 week, and can resume regular exercise after around 3 weeks.
Immediately after your surgery you will need help with your children and household chores. You will not be able to lift your child or do anything strenuous, and if you’re taking prescription pain medications you should not care for another person.
One of the main benefits of a mommy makeover is that having all of these procedures done together means you only have to undergo surgery and recovery one time.
