Getting Back Your Pre-Baby Figure: Answers to Common Questions Regarding Mommy Makeover in Los Angeles

Posted by on Feb 6, 2013 in Body Procedures | Comments Off

We live in a culture where a youthful appearance is highly prized. Cosmetic procedures like the Mommy Makeover are becoming increasingly popular because of their ability to restore a woman’s figure to a more sculpted, youthful form.  Below are several questions and answers you should consider when planning a Mommy Makeover in Los Angeles.

What procedures are included in a Mommy Makeover?

With the goal of restoring a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy state, a typical mommy makeover offered by plastic surgeons such as Dr. Hoefflin consists of a combination of two or more cosmetic procedures including tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction. However, some Mommy Makeovers include vaginal rejuvenation or Brazilian butt lifts as well.

Can I have more kids after my Mommy Makeover?

While it is possible to have more children after having a Mommy Makeover, it is not advised. A subsequent pregnancy would negate the effects of the surgery and require another round of procedures after the pregnancy, should the patient wish to regain her former appearance. Thus, women who are not done having children are advised to forgo a Mommy Makeover until the right time.

What are its known risks and benefits?

While serious complications are infrequent, there is always a risk of bleeding or infection after any surgery. Patients also experience pain and swelling for a short period of time following their surgery, but this pain is usually manageable when patients take pain medication as prescribed by their surgeon. The benefits of a Mommy Makeover are an increase in personal confidence and the return to a more youthful, pre-baby shape.

When is the best time to have a Mommy Makeover?

There are two main considerations when timing a Mommy Makeover. The first is whether or not the patient’s body has fully recovered from pregnancy and childbirth. The second is whether or not the patient’s post-surgery support system is already in place. Generally, six months after giving birth a woman’s body is stable enough to undergo a Mommy Makeover.

As an added tip, whether you’re undergoing a complete Mommy Makeover, or simply liposuction in Los Angeles, be sure that you’re doing it for your sake, and not because of anyone else. Undergoing plastic surgery procedures just because a friend of yours highly recommends it is not a good reason to have elective surgery.
