What Can a Mommy Makeover Accomplish?

“Mommy makeover” is a term given to a combination of customized breast and body rejuvenation procedures designed to enhance post-pregnancy figures. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, the body experiences many permanent changes that affect the structure and integrity of tissues and which oftentimes cannot be improved by diet and exercise alone.

Typically, a mommy makeover consists of:

While a mommy makeover is not a suitable substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program, it can rejuvenate and contour your body to complement your healthy lifestyle choices. Weight fluctuations may diminish the longevity of your mommy makeover results, so individuals planning substantial weight loss or future pregnancies should postpone plans for a mommy makeover.

What Are the Benefits of Mommy Makeover?

Motherhood often means learning to adapt to difficult and unique challenges. Permanent changes to your body that affect your self-image and confidence shouldn’t be one of these. Let Dr. Brown help you learn to love your body again with a mommy makeover.

A mommy makeover procedure focuses on improving the changes brought about by pregnancy and breastfeeding, including:

  • Eliminating loose or hanging abdominal skin
  • Tightening stretched or separated abdominal wall muscles
  • Removing stubborn pockets of excess fat
  • Restoring breast volume
  • Raising sagging breasts
  • Elevating downward-pointing nipples
  • Enhancing curves and body contour
  • Improving confidence and self-image

In combining procedures for a mommy makeover, you get the distinct advantage over scheduling the same procedures months or years apart— you save money, time, and duration of your recovery period.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Typically, mommy makeover candidates are patients in reasonably good mental and physical health who are looking to enhance the appearance of their post-childbearing bodies.

Dr. Brown recommends Connecticut mommy makeover candidates should:

  • Be close to their stable, ideal weight
  • Be finished with childbearing and breastfeeding
  • Not smoke or be willing to quit prior to surgery
  • Have realistic expectations and a positive outlook
  • Be prepared to closely follow instructions

How Soon Will I See My Mommy Makeover Results?

Most patients notice immediate improvements to their overall figure following a mommy makeover. However, initial swelling may temporarily obscure your true results for a few weeks, after which you will  continue to see improvement as your body heals and adjusts to its new contours. By maintaining your healthy weight and lifestyle, you may experience long-lasting results from your mommy makeover procedure.
