What is Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy can change a woman's body and for many, regaining their pre-pregnancy bodies can be a challenge even after diet and exercise. At Woodbury Plastic Surgery, we offer Mommy Makeovers to help moms regain their shape. Dr. David Thao is one of the most requested board certified plastic surgeon around for a Mommy Makeover. He has operated on Mommy Makeover patients from all over the country and has helped many moms look and feel better about themselves.
A Mommy Makeover is any combination of cosmetic procedures that restore your before-pregnancy appearance. A Mommy Makeover surgery may include a tummy tuck, a breast lift or breast augmentation, and liposuction to numerous areas of the body.
You may want to consider a Mommy Makeover:
- If you're unhappy about your appearance post-pregnancy
- If childbirth has negatively affected the size and shape of your breasts
- If you have excess or sagging abdominal skin usually due to weight lose or pregnancy
- If you have abdominal muscles that are separated and weakened due to pregnancy
- If you have stubborn areas of fat that refuse to respond to exercise and diet
Your Mommy Makeover
Dr. David Thao will perform a Mommy Makeover under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Operation time depends on how extensive the surgery is or number of procedures.
Immediately following your Mommy Makeover surgery, you will wear a light compression garment and support bra. A tube may be inserted to drain any excess fluid that has collected. You may experience swelling, soreness, numbness of skin, and bruising for several weeks. Dr. David Thao will prescribe medications to alleviate these symptoms. Most patients are able to return to most normal activities within 2 to 4 weeks.
After your Mommy Makeover, you may choose to do additional cosmetic facial procedures to enhance your Mommy Makeover such as eyelid surgery, botox, dermal fillers, laser facials, and anti-aging skincare.
