What is Involved in a Mommy Makeover?
How to best describe a mommy makeover? “Mommy makeover” is the term given to a variety of cosmetic procedures all designed to restore a woman’s body back to the shape it was before she had her first child.
What makes a mommy makeover somewhat unique is that all the procedures are done at the same time and the combination of procedures is customized according to each woman’s desired outcome.
If you’re considering a mommy makeover, you’ll need to schedule a consultation to give you and Dr. Contogiannis the opportunity to discuss the best combination of procedures that will provide you with optimal results.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
Your mommy makeover cost will be unique, as each makeover is individually customized for each woman. There are several variables taken into consideration, including the type and number of procedures used.
Dr. Contogiannis will thoroughly discuss your specific case during your initial consultation and she’ll be able to give you a more accurate cost assessment at that time.
Insurance companies seldom cover the cost of cosmetic surgeries. It’s important to check with your insurance provider to find out which surgeries they do or do not consider eligible for coverage.
In an effort to keep patient procedures as affordable as possible, we offer financing as an option for your mommy makeover through Alphaeon® or CareCredit®.
How Does a Mommy Makeover Work?
One of the aspects of a mommy makeover that makes it one of the most sought-after plastic surgeries is that every makeover is customized to the specific needs of each individual woman.
The purpose of the mommy makeover is to improve the body issues that were brought on by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Although each makeover procedure is unique, it usually starts with contouring the breasts and abdomen. The most commonly performed procedures include tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and breast lift (with or without implants) Additional procedures can be added as necessary, such as liposuction, butt lift, thigh lift, etc.
Depending on the complexity and the number of procedures selected, your mommy makeover may be done as a single operation or it may need to be spread over several sessions.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Ideal candidates are healthy adult women who are through having children and are left with loose, saggy, unsightly excess skin on their body. Maybe you’ve lost breast volume or they’re left droopy or uneven. You could regain a more youthful appearance with a mommy makeover.
What Can I Expect During Recovery Following a Mommy Makeover?
Each body heals at a different rate, and a lot will depend on the specific procedures you have done—but generally speaking, mommy makeovers have a relatively short recovery period.
For about six weeks after your makeover, you’ll be cautioned against lifting anything over about five pounds and you’ll likely be asked to restrict exercise during that time period as well.
Dr. Contogiannis will give you post-op instructions after your mommy makeover. For best results in the shortest time possible, read and closely follow those instructions.
