Pregnancy, weight gain, and menopause can cause numerous changes to the body. This may include distended skin on the stomach, large or misshapen breasts, and scarring from c-sections. These changes leave many women looking for a solution to help their bodies feel like theirs again.
A mommy makeover combines cosmetic procedures to restore a woman’s body. Procedures may include two or more of the following:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Breast reduction
- Tummy tuck
Despite being a popular procedure, many misconceptions about mommy makeovers may be preventing women from experiencing its benefits. Learn the truth behind some of the most common myths about mommy makeovers.
#1: Every Mommy Makeover Is the Same
A mommy makeover is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Every pregnancy is different and will affect every woman differently. Plus, everyone’s goals are not the same. That’s why the procedure offers a variety of options, letting you pick and choose what you’d like done. With the guidance of a professional surgeon, you can create a treatment that is exactly what you’re looking for.
#2: It Leaves Behind Visible Scarring
Many patients have been misled into believing that mommy makeovers leave behind extensive scarring. While some of the procedures included in a mommy makeover can have larger incisions, working with a skilled surgeon will ensure that they minimize scarring and use specialized techniques. After your procedure, taking great care of your surgery site can go a long way in reducing the appearance of scarring as well.
#3: It’s Only for Mothers
As previously mentioned, mommy makeovers can also benefit women who have experienced bodily changes due to menopause, aging, and fluctuations in weight. Combining procedures allows patients to personalize their procedures to their personal goals.
#4: Recovery Is Painful
Recovery times for mommy makeovers will vary depending on the procedures for your mommy makeover. Because you are combining two or more procedures, recovery time may be a little longer, but your surgeon will work with you to ensure you are comfortable and minimize any discomfort.
