When a woman goes through pregnancy and childbirth, her body inevitably experiences major changes. These can include the abdominal skin loosening, the breasts sagging, and stubborn areas of excess fat developing. Similar changes can also occur for women who have experienced significant weight loss or weight fluctuations. If your body has gone through this type of transformation and you’d like to restore your youthful figure and self-confidence, a mommy makeover in Vancouver, WA, may be an ideal remedy.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a term used to describe a personalized set of cosmetic procedures designed to help women restore their appearance after pregnancy, weight loss, and/or aging. Typically, a mommy makeover will feature surgical procedures, but non-surgical treatments can be included as well.
What Treatments Are Included in a Mommy Makeover?
The treatments included in a mommy makeover will depend entirely on the unique needs of the patient. If you’re interested in undergoing a mommy makeover, the first step will be a consultation with Dr. Lewis. He’ll ask you about what you’re hoping to achieve with the procedure and work with you to devise a custom-tailored treatment plan that will satisfy your goals.
Surgical procedures often performed during a mommy makeover include:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift
- Tummy tuck
A mommy makeover in Vancouver, WA, may also include some of the following non-surgical procedures:
- Non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation
- Skin-tightening procedures
- Cellulite reduction
- Dermal fillers
- Non-surgical fat reduction
- Skin resurfacing treatments
Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
- Creates a slimmer, more youthful figure
- Improves body proportions
- Restores your figure to its pre-pregnancy appearance
- Increased self-confidence
- Potentially gets rid of stretch marks
- Fully personalized treatment
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
Because every mommy makeover is different, the specifics of the procedure and recovery time can vary quite a bit. Typically, you can expect your recovery time to be similar to that of the most significant procedure you’re undergoing. For example, if you’re having a breast lift and a tummy tuck, the tummy tuck will require the longer recovery downtime of the two surgeries.
After your mommy makeover, Dr. Lewis will provide you with detailed instructions for the healing process. If your treatment includes one or more surgical procedures, you can expect to need at least a week or two of rest before returning to work. You may also need to wait a month or longer before resuming strenuous physical activity.
Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
If you’d like to restore your youthful figure after pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or aging, you could be a good candidate for a mommy makeover in Vancouver, WA. Ideal candidates should meet these requirements:
- Be in good physical health
- Be fully recovered from childbirth
- Have no plans to become pregnant in the future
