4 Minute Read:
Many people have heard of a Mommy Makeover because of its ever-increasing popularity. As more women focus on self-care and doing things for themselves that make them happy, cosmetic procedures often top the list.
While a “typical” Mommy Makeover” usually includes treatments for the breasts and stomach, there is no wrong answer to “What part of your body would you like to enhance?”
In fact, you don’t have to be a mom to take advantage of a Mommy Makeover. If you’re looking for a way to boost your confidence and reshape your body, a Mommy Makeover is for you.
Most Popular Mommy Makeover Procedures
If you’ve tried dieting and exercise, but that stubborn flab refuses to budge, consider liposuction. Liposuction isn’t designed for weight loss; it aims to smooth and contour problem areas. Dr. Wilson uses VASERlipo®, a method of liposuction that uses ultrasound technology. VASER® loosens and liquefies fat, resulting in gentler surgery and more consistent results than traditional liposuction.
Liposuction can contour your stomach, waist, thighs, arms, and even neck. Downtime is minimal, and you’ll see full results within six weeks of your surgery.
Weight fluctuations, whether from pregnancy or lifestyle changes, often result in changes to your breasts. After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women complain that their breasts look deflated. Or maybe time has caught up to you, and you notice your breasts aren’t as perky as they once were.
A breast lift tightens and lifts your breasts, giving you back youthful firmness. As every woman’s needs and expected results vary, Dr. Wilson customizes the breast lift procedure to address your needs. From mild drooping to severe sagging, a breast lift repairs it all.
If you struggle with excess skin around your midsection, think about adding a tummy tuck to your Mommy Makeover. Rapid weight gain stretches the skin of your abdomen, and while your skin can sometimes bounce back without issue, you may notice that you have a pesky tummy pooch that seems permanent.
A tummy tuck works by removing excess skin from the area between your rib cage and pubic area. It’s not a weight loss solution; instead, it’s a way to redefine your waist and contour your figure. Additionally, if your abdominal muscles separated during pregnancy, Dr. Wilson can repair the damage during the procedure.
A woman’s breasts are often an integral part of her feeling of femininity. If you are unhappy with your breast size, it can affect your self-esteem. Breast augmentation continues to reign in the top five most popular cosmetic surgery choices for women, giving them the confidence they desire.
Dr. Wilson will work with you to determine the best options for your breast augmentation. You’ll select the perfect size of saline or silicone implants, choose the placement of the implants (over the pectoral muscles or under), and talk about the incision placement. You may also decide whether to add a breast lift to your augmentation.
Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying your newfound curves.
Downtime for Mommy Makeover Recovery
Breast procedures and tummy tucks take around six weeks to fully heal, so schedule your surgery accordingly. After liposuction, you can return to most activities after about a week, but swelling takes around six weeks to dissipate completely.
If you choose a tummy tuck or breast enhancement, you’ll be limited in your activities for the first couple of weeks. You won’t be able to do strenuous exercise for six weeks, though Dr. Wilson encourages his patients to take short, slow walks regularly. Gentle movement increases blood flow to help with healing while reducing the likelihood of developing blood clots.
You’ll likely experience some discomfort after surgery, but this is normal. Dr. Wilson will give you options for managing pain, as well as comprehensive instructions for recovery. Follow them to the letter, and schedule necessary follow-up appointments to ensure your healing is progressing as expected.
