Mommy Makeover Q & A
What is a mommy makeover?
Your body performs an incredible feat when it creates a baby. Pregnancy and delivery, as well as breastfeeding, bring rapid changes to your body. The joys of motherhood make childbearing a wonderful experience, but many women lose confidence in their appearance when exercise and diet don’t seem to restore the shape and tone they enjoyed before motherhood.
A mommy makeover is a collection of cosmetic procedures to address the changes that occur in a woman’s body after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Dr. Schwartz creates a customized treatment plan to address your specific concerns and goals for a mommy makeover.
Which procedures can a mommy makeover include?
A mommy makeover can lift and tighten areas of your body that may have stretched, begun to sag, or lost shape during your pregnancy and breastfeeding experiences. Your personalized mommy makeover with Dr. Schwartz may include:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
At your initial consultation, Dr. Schwartz discusses your concerns with you and recommends a treatment plan to achieve subtle, natural-looking results for all your goals.
Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
A consultation with Dr. Schwartz, which includes a physical exam, detailed health history, and discussion of your lifestyle, goals, and concerns, is the best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for a mommy makeover.
It’s likely you’re a candidate if you:
- Don’t wish to have more children
- Have achieved a stable weight
- Exercise regularly
- Maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle
Because recovery from a mommy makeover procedure can take up to two weeks, it’s essential that you have someone to take care of your children during this time.
What are the risks of a mommy makeover?
Dr. Schwartz is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience performing all the procedures used in a mommy makeover, so the procedure is safe and effective. However, any surgery does carry some risk, including:
- Temporary loss of sensation
Dr. Schwartz discusses all possible benefits and risks with you at your consultation so you can make an informed decision about whether a mommy makeover is right for you.
