Mommy Makeover Q & A
What does mommy makeover surgery include?
A mommy makeover is different for every woman. During your consultation with Dr. Sumpter at Winds of Change Cosmetic Surgery, you talk about areas of concern, and she works with you to design a total mommy makeover plan.
Usually, a mommy makeover includes breast and abdominal surgery, but there are many variations. Depending on your appearance goals and situation, your mommy makeover can include some or even all of the following.
- Breast reduction: Removes excess breast tissue and reshapes breasts
- Breast lift: Restores sagging breasts to their original position
- Breast augmentation: Enlarges breasts with silicone or saline implants
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck): Removes extra skin and fat from under your navel
- Thigh lift: Removes fat and excess skin from your inner and outer thighs
- Butt lift: Removes sagging skin and lifts remaining skin for a perkier butt
- Liposuction: Suctions extra fat from love handles, thighs, or anywhere on your body
A mommy makeover may also reduce the appearance of stretch marks on belly, thighs, and breasts.
Although you should expect some scarring with a mommy makeover, Dr. Sumpter specializes in well-concealed incisions and minimal scarring. Her surgical skill and artistic eye truly shine in mommy makeovers. Dr. Sumpter can sculpt, revitalize, remove fat, add volume, or anything else you need to recapture a beautiful, youthful, and healthy-looking body.
How soon after childbirth can I have a mommy makeover?
Mommy makeovers are best for women who don’t plan to have more kids. If you have a mommy makeover and then have future pregnancies, your muscles and skin could stretch out all over again, which might require further surgeries.
It’s usually best to schedule a mommy makeover after you’ve returned to your pre-pregnancy weight and haven’t breastfed for six months or more. For an ideal outcome, your body should be in a stable state (or as close as possible) before your surgery.
What is the recovery time for mommy makeover surgery?
Recovery time can vary depending on the procedures involved. Many are still outpatient procedures, but Dr. Sumpter’s recommendation, patient preference, and patient medical history may dictate an overnight stay.
Most women return to regular activity (minus heavy exercise) within around two to four weeks. You can usually resume normal exercise at around six to eight weeks after your surgery. Closely follow Dr. Sumpter’s guidelines for the smoothest mommy makeover recovery possible.
Having kids doesn’t have to mean losing your body, thanks to mommy makeovers at Winds of Change Cosmetic Surgery. Use online booking or call the office to arrange your consultation with Dr. Sumpter now.
