Having a baby is usually one of the happiest times of a woman’s life, but that doesn’t mean every new mom is happy about the changes pregnancy and breastfeeding have made to her body. These changes are not the same for everyone, but they can include loose, flabby skin on the abdomen, “saddle bags” on the thighs, a wider backside, perpetually tired-looking eyes or saggy, deflated breasts. If you’ve had a baby and aren’t thrilled with what the process has done to your body, a mommy makeover may be just what you need to reclaim your pre-baby body.
An Adaptable Procedure
A mommy makeover is tailored to the needs of the individual. For example, one woman may only need her stomach and breasts addressed, while another may be happy with those areas but want her thighs and backside addressed. The details of your mommy makeover will be decided between you and our experienced surgeon. Keep in mind, too, that not all changes are necessarily negative. If you love your fuller thighs, bigger breasts or wider hips, there’s no need to change them! A mommy makeover is about correcting changes you don’t like, and that’s a deeply personal set of decisions that deserve your careful consideration.
Your Overall Health
As a mommy makeover is typically made up of two or more procedures done during the same surgery, you need to be healthy and strong to heal quickly and avoid complications. For this reason, candidates for this procedure are in good overall health. The healthier you are before surgery, the easier the recovery will be.
Never Too Late
It doesn’t matter if your youngest child is in preschool or postgrad; it’s never too late to get a mommy makeover. For older moms, this procedure can also include steps to reverse signs of aging. It’s common for older moms to request anti-aging procedures in their mommy makeover, such as neck lifts, brow lifts or liposuction. Make sure to talk to Dr. Jeneby about all of your concerns.
