If you’ve had a baby, you know how much pregnancy and breastfeeding can change your body. While it’s possible to lose the “baby weight” through diet and exercise, lifestyle changes can’t tighten loose skin or lift the breasts. The mommy makeover is a popular cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of areas most affected by childbearing such as loose skin, stretch marks, sagging breasts, and more. With a mommy makeover, Dr. Ortiz can help you get your pre-baby body back.
During pregnancy, the muscles of the abdomen, as well as your skin and tissues stretch to accommodate the growing baby. While diet & exercise can help you lose extra weight after childbirth, these layers of skin and tissue may not bounce back. This is why an increasing number of women are choosing to have a mommy makeover when they are done having children. The term “mommy makeover” actually refers to a combination of procedures performed as a single stage procedure. Mommy makeovers may involve breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, liposuction, tummy tuck, Brazilian butt lift, and/or labiaplasty.
The procedures included in your mommy makeover are extremely customizable and depend on your body and your goals. During your consultation with Dr. Ortiz, it’s important to discuss all the areas you’d like to improve so he can create a surgical plan for you. Because of the customization level, recovery time varies. Most patients should plan for two weeks off of work, with a total recovery time of six weeks.
