Mommy Makeovers have become a popular way for New York moms to regain their youthful appearance after having children. The primary attraction of a Mommy Makeover is the ability to address a number of concerns in a single surgery and recovery period. If you have completed your family and are looking for a way to do something special just for you, perhaps it is time to consider a Mommy Makeover.
A Mommy Makeover is not a specific procedure; instead, it is a combination of procedures that can be tailored to the specific needs of each patient. Some of the procedures commonly included with a Mommy Makeover are:
Breast enhancement – to restore drooping breasts to a more youthful position and add fullness that has been lost through pregnancy and breastfeeding
Tummy tuck – to tighten up abdominal muscles that have become flabby during pregnancy and remove excess skin from the midsection
Liposuction – gets rid of stubborn pockets of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, even after you lose the baby weight
Facial procedures – such as an eyelid lift or facelift to reverse the signs of aging that begin to rear their ugly heads sooner than you would like
Our experienced board-certified plastic surgeons at New York Group for Plastic Surgery will be able to advise you on the safest and most effective combination of procedures to meet your specific needs. Factors to be considered include time required for each procedure, to prevent you from being under general anesthesia too long, your overall health and medical history and your desired results.
The Lowdown on Recovery
Some women shy away from a Mommy Makeover because they are concerned about the amount of time they might be down for recovery. Busy moms do not usually have weeks to take off from caring for their families to indulge in plastic surgery. If this is a concern of yours, rest assured that these procedures often require a shorter recovery than you might think. Even the tummy tuck, which tends to have the longest healing period, will likely allow you to be back to most regular activities within about two weeks.
Dramatic, Long-Lasting Results
Once you have recovered from your Mommy Makeover, you will enjoy long-lasting results from any or all of these procedures. Most patients only require one surgery over a lifetime, as long as they maintain a healthy weight after surgery and follow an appropriate skincare regimen. If you would like to have additional touch-up procedures in the future, that is always a possibility as well.
A Mommy Makeover can be a special treat you give to yourself after devoting your life to caring for your family. To learn more about these procedures, contact New York Plastic Group for Plastic Surgery at one of our four locations: New York City at 888-591-4845; Tarrytown at 914-366-6139.
