If you are considering plastic surgery to restore your appearance, especially after children, you are in great company. Many women choose to have a mommy makeover, which is actually a combination of a number of procedures. A major benefit of mommy makeover is that it is completely tailored to your needs, as it only includes the procedures you need to help you look and feel your best. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Raj understands that patients want to enjoy their results as long as possible and is dedicated to helping them achieve their cosmetic goals. There are a few factors that can impact how long your results last.
Combination of Procedures
Many of the procedures focus on the breasts and abdomen since these areas tend to experience the most change during pregnancy. Procedures commonly combined as part of a mommy makeover include:
When you visit Raj Plastic Surgery for your mommy makeover, your treatment will be customized to address your cosmetic concerns. Your choice of procedures can influence the longevity of your results. For example, if you opt to include a breast augmentation in your mommy makeover procedure, your implants will need to be replaced at some point in the future.
A healthy lifestyle is great for your overall well-being, but did you know it can help prolong your beautiful mommy makeover results? A lifestyle that includes lots of exercise and a healthy diet can help you maintain your weight, which allows you to enjoy your new look for longer.
Pregnancy After Mommy Makeover
Many patients wonder if they can get pregnant after undergoing a mommy makeover. A mommy makeover is generally recommended to women who have completed their families. This is because the weight gain associated with pregnancy can compromise your results. For example, a tummy tuck involves the removal of excess skin and fat on the abdomen as well as the tightening of the underlying muscles. If pregnancy occurs after a tummy tuck, the abdominal muscles can become stretched again, and excess skin may again become an issue after giving birth. If you are considering getting pregnant at any point after having a mommy makeover, bring up your plans with Dr. Raj, who will help you make an informed decision.
