Having plastic surgery is a big deal. The development of the Mommy Makeover, which combines a group of procedures into a single surgery, has been a game-changer for many women, even some who aren’t biological mothers, even some whose family includes only “furbabies.” You get the point, any woman can have a Mommy Makeover, whether she is a mother or not. This answers one of the questions that prospective patients have about this treatment. Here, we’ll answer a few more.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?
The Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures. Which procedures is relatively open. The beauty of this treatment is that every case is customized. If you’re thinking of consulting with a plastic surgeon about a Mommy Makeover, don’t expect a cookie-cutter treatment plan that includes breast augmentation and a tummy tuck. Expect a thrilling journey to designing your new and improved body alongside an expert in this arena! Some treatments that may be involved in a Mommy Makeover include:
- Breast implant surgery
- Breast lift surgery
- Mini tummy tuck
- Brazilian Butt Lift
- Thigh lift
We could say the sky’s the limit for the Mommy Makeover. Of course, there are limitations to surgical makeovers due to the safe amount of time one can be under general anesthesia. We don’t expect any patient to come to us wanting all of these listed options. The primary point is that this treatment plan can beautifully address multiple areas at one time.
Is a Mommy Makeover Painful?
If you’ve done any research about a Mommy Makeover, you may have come across a tiny detail related to abdominoplasty: that you cannot stand upright for a week to 10 days after surgery. This aspect alone leads many people to assume that a Mommy Makeover is painful. Interestingly, it’s not. Patients can expect tenderness and soreness in any area that is treated. Abdominoplasty causes a sense of tightness that subsides gradually over a couple of weeks. With rest and directed use of prescription painkillers, though, recovery can be quite tolerable.
