10 Things To Know Before Getting A Mommy Makeover

10 Things To Know Before Getting A Mommy Makeover


  1. You shouldn’t book a mommy makeover unless you’re certain you’re finished having kids. If you think you’ll want more children in the future, you should postpone your plastic surgery. This is because having more children can reverse the results of your mommy makeover, putting you right back where you started.


  2. A mommy makeover typically entails a number of surgeries. It varies from woman to woman, but the most common trend is to have a belly tightening (also known as a tummy tuck) and a breast operation. Depending on the patient’s desires, the latter could be a breast augmentation, a breast lift, or a mix of the two. All of these treatments can be performed simultaneously by our surgeons.


  3. When you’ve reached the weight that you want to maintain for the rest of your life, you should get your mommy makeover. Yes, eating well and exercising regularly can help you recover faster following surgery, but you don’t want to get too thin before the procedure. We suggest achieving a weight that you can sustain.


  4. Other procedures might be added to your mother makeover. The goal of a mommy makeover is to restore your appearance prior to having children, which may require further surgeries in some cases. Liposuction, injectables, and other procedures may be used.


  5. Makeovers for moms aren’t as painful as you would believe. Mommy makeovers are done with a medication called Exparel, which might cause some post-op discomfort like any other surgical procedure. Exparel is a localized numbing agent that lasts for three days and helps you get through the worst of the post-op discomfort. It was first introduced roughly five years ago. We conducted a research at Charlotte Plastic Surgery and discovered that women who took Exparel only needed a third as many pain medicines as women who did not take Exparel.


  6. The time it takes for a mommy makeover to be completed varies. Your mommy makeover could take anywhere from four and a half to five and a half hours, depending on what you’re having done.


  7. You’ll be up and walking around again in no time, so you won’t have to wait long to return home. It’s important to note that these treatments are performed as outpatient procedures, which means you’ll be able to stand up and walk out after they’re finished!


  8. You should expect to be out of commission for a few weeks. Most patients are pain-free after the first week, although it may take seven to ten days to get back on your feet and drive. You’ll be able to resume 100 percent of your typical activities, including vigorous exercise, in about four weeks.


  9. For mommy makeovers, some seasons are better than others. Moms frequently inquire about the ideal time of year to have their procedure. The quick answer is that you should have your mommy makeover done whenever you have child care assistance. We strongly advise you to pick a period when your mother or sister can assist you, or when your partner can take some time off work.


  10. Prior to your mommy makeover surgery, you should always schedule a consultation. In fact, this is something we aggressively insist on. We want to make sure we’re on the same page about your objectives and that we’ve established some clear expectations for the process and recuperation period. Furthermore, our surgeons will want to make sure you’re in good health prior to your treatment so you can recover as quickly as possible.
