What is a mommy makeover?
The Mommy Makeover that Le Reve Plastic Surgery offers their patients the opportunity to take care of the specific issues that face women after giving birth. The two major areas that normally affect the body by a pregnancy are the stomach and the breasts. The stomach muscles are tightened by sewing the torn and stretched muscles back together and getting rid of the extracted excess skin and fat. This procedure also includes the issues concerning the breasts such as drooping, loss of size, and other concerns.

These specialized procedures are very helpful to women after birth that has resulted in an unfavorable self-image for the mother. Many times the mother is unable to retain her pre-pregnancy body through diet and exercise alone. This is often the result of carrying large babies, who stretch the stomach skin and muscles to their limits. This targeted makeover also addresses issues with the breasts shape changing due to the pregnancy. Often the breasts lose their shape, volume, or no longer are the same size. Our Mommy Makeover will address and re-shape the undesirable areas of your body with minimal discomfort and a quick recovery time.
How long is mommy makeover recovery?
Just as after any surgery, healthcare workers advise that the patient relax and rest after such a procedure. It is necessary to get adequate amounts of sleep so that the body can concentrate on healing itself. Most of a body’s healing powers are the most beneficial when the person is asleep. It is equally important that the patient try limit activity, avoiding too much in the first few days. Moving around a lot will increase the blood flow to those areas that have had trauma because of the surgery. Rest is the best medicine.
To make your healing process easier after the surgery, it is necessary to complete preparations before undergoing the procedure. This will include finding a friend or family member who is available to help you for at least the first few days after surgery. Patients should avoid any heavy lifting or straining, and a helper around your home will be necessary. For those mothers going to experience the Mommy Makeover who already have children at home, it will be necessary to secure someone to care for them at least for the first few days so that you can get the proper rest that you will need.
Having a child is one of the greatest miracles that one can experience. Although the resulting infant is more than worth the pain of childbirth, the aftermath of a stretched, sagging, out of shape body is often what the mother’s get left with.
