One of the most joyous occasions in a woman’s life is the birth of her child, especially during the holiday season. Family members and friends, near and far, will travel to see the new addition for the first time and celebrate the holiday season.
However, a new mother may be wondering what the future holds. Not just for the newborn, but also for herself.
If you are a new mommy who wants to have your pre-pregnancy body back for the new year, then perhaps a “mommy makeover” is right for you!
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a comprised of a few surgical procedures in order to restore the body you have before pregnancy. The combination of specific procedures varies from patient to patient, depending on each woman’s particular needs and desired look.
The following are the most common procedures to include in a mommy makeover:
- Breast Lift – Restores the breasts to a youthful position on the chest and removes any loose skin, as well as excess tissues, which results in a sagging look. Often, breast implants are necessary to replace the volume loss.
- Liposuction – Used to remove individual pockets of fat from various areas of the body, specifically those that do not respond well to diet and exercise.
- Tummy tuck – Removes excess skin and tissue from the midsection to sculpt a slimmer waistline, as well as tightens the abdominal wall muscles to reverse the stretching caused by pregnancy.
Other procedures associated with a mommy makeover may include facial enhancements, such as laser skin rejuvenation or an eyelid lift.
Have Burnett Plastic Surgery Give You That Fresh New Year Start!
In general, our Westfield plastic surgeon likes to limit surgeries in a six to eight-hour timeframe to reduce the risk of complications. If your combination of procedures is within this timeframe, then it would take just one session to perform your choice of procedures. Combining procedures save some expenses related to plastic surgery, such as anesthesiologist fees and operating room fees.
