When can I get a mommy makeover?
It’s important to note that you should be ready for the procedures before getting a mommy makeover. Even though a mommy makeover can restore your pre-baby figure, the results won’t last if you have another child or experience a significant change in your body weight.
The best time to schedule your mommy makeover is once your family is complete and you are at a stable body weight. You’ll need to prepare for several weeks of recovery after the procedures, so be sure you can count on help with taking care of your young child.
Other important criteria to meet before getting a mommy makeover include being in good overall health, having a healthy weight, and budgeting accordingly. If you smoke, you will need to stop at least three weeks prior to surgery, and you should not be more than 25 pounds over your goal weight.
You will need to wait at least six months from childbirth until you can undergo a mommy makeover procedure, as the invasive surgery takes a toll on your recovering body.
What is the mommy makeover concept?
A mommy makeover is not just one single service. Rather, it is a group of cosmetic services personalized to your needs.
Dr. James Chao works with you to understand your unique needs and body goals to customize your treatment recommendations. He can also recommend treatments if you want to make a few enhancements at the same time.
Although a mommy makeover includes multiple treatments, we can combine them into a single appointment. This means that you’ll only have one recovery period, letting you get back on your feet and with your family much faster.
Once you have your mommy makeover, you’ll feel confident about your body again, and customizing all your treatments for your unique aesthetic goals helps you feel like the best you possible!
How do I pick mommy makeover procedures?
The effects pregnancy has on your body are different from other women, which is why customizing your mommy makeover is essential to ensuring you’re happy with the results.
There are so many options to choose when selecting the treatments for your mommy makeover. Dr. James Chao discusses your expectations and goals at your OasisMD Lifestyle Healthcare consultation to recommend the best services for you. Some of the procedures that you may consider include:
- Breast lift, either with or without augmentation or reduction
- Liposuction, to remove stubborn pockets of fat
- Tummy tuck, to remove saggy skin and restore your abdomen’s contours
- Buttocks augmentation, to restore your curves and enhance your silhouette
