How Many Sizes Can I Go Down After Mommy Makeover Surgery?
Pregnancy and childbirth are beautiful, natural processes that produce rewarding results. Unfortunately, bodily changes, such as weight distribution and shape after giving birth, can be frustrating to cope with. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is a board-certified plastic surgeon with Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery who offers women the chance for a mommy makeover in Tampa, FL. Using a combination of surgical and nonsurgical treatments, women can regain a slim, firm, and beautiful silhouette after those pregnancy and childbirth years.
What is a mommy makeover?
At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, the mommy makeover incorporates a combination of treatments to minimize unwanted fat and sagging skin after childbirth. Our team uses innovative liposuction and skin removal procedures to help women achieve that youthful silhouette. Additionally, nonsurgical treatments are available to minimize stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and blotchy skin to attain a smooth and vibrant glow.
Who makes an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover?
You may be a candidate for a mommy makeover if you:
Are done having children
Wish to improve your appearance after childbirth
Want to regain your pre-pregnancy appearance
Have tried living a healthy lifestyle but failed to obtain the results you desire
Have sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or fat pockets in the thighs, buttocks, and hips that are difficult to get rid of
What areas of the body can be improved with a mommy makeover procedure?
A mommy makeover can be used to improve a wide variety of treatment areas that have changed due to pregnancy and childbirth. Common treatment areas include:
Skin imperfections, such as blotches, scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation
Each mommy makeover in Tampa, FL is customized to meet each individual patient’s goals so that they can achieve that youthful, slim look they desire and feel comfortable with.
What are treatment procedures like?
Since a mommy makeover can consist of a number of treatment combinations, treatment procedures will look different for each patient. Examples include breast augmentations, breast lifts, liposuction, and tummy tucks. Some procedures are surgical in nature and will require sedation, while nonsurgical treatments can be completed in as little as one office visit using local anesthesia. If surgical procedures are recommended, treatment could take anywhere from 3 – 7 hours to complete.
How do I decide which procedures to include in my mommy makeover?
Dr. Mang works with each patient to conduct a thorough initial exam and establish desired cosmetic goals. Depending on what the patient would like to accomplish, Dr. Mang will present her with surgical and/or nonsurgical options to aid in achieving her goals.
How many sizes can I go down after a mommy makeover?
Dr. Mang can give each patient a general estimate on how many sizes (bra, pants, etc.) they can safely go down after a mommy makeover. This depends on personal medical history, current body mass index (BMI), and height. Dr. Mang and our professional team will work with you to determine the appropriate size reduction that is safe for you and will give you beautiful, comfortable results.
What does recovery look like?
If surgical treatments are used, such as a tummy tuck, it can take up to six months for a patient to fully recover. Patients should expect to not have the ability to stand upright for the first two weeks. During the first two months of recovery, patients can return to normal day-to-day activities but should abstain from strenuous activities. Dr. Mang will provide you with detailed instructions to care for surgical incisions to ensure proper healing, minimize scarring, and optimize results.
What if I get pregnant again after my mommy makeover?
To produce long-lasting results, it’s best for women to have the mommy makeover if they do not wish to have any more kids. However, the unexpected can happen. If you get pregnant again after a mommy makeover, you risk changing your procedural results. After recovering from childbirth, you can return to our clinic for additional surgery to restore results.
