If you have had children, getting a bikini body during the summer is one of your troubling concerns. A gorgeous body during summer is everyone’s desire, but achieving those results can be a hassle. A mommy makeover can restore your confidence by reversing all the signs of a post-pregnancy body.



What Is a Mommy Makeover?



A mommy makeover comprises many procedures done at once. A woman who wants the surgery must identify multiple areas of her body that need improvement. The surgery works for women with physical changes they are unhappy about after having children.



Components of a Mommy Makeover



Mommy makeovers typically involve procedures that your surgeon customizes. The surgery happens based on your lifestyle, anatomy, and individual needs.


 Below are some of the procedures you can have during the surgery:


  • Tummy tuck.
  • Breast augmentation.
  • Breast reduction.
  • Breast lift.
  • Thigh lift.
  • Arm lift.
  • Liposuction.
  • Buttock augmentation.



Who Needs a Mommy Makeover?



Pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body. Mommy makeovers suit mothers who want to transform their bodies back into a youthful shape. It is essential to go for the procedure once you are sure you do not want more children. Giving birth after the surgery may reverse your results.



Benefits of a Mommy Makeover



Most mothers are self-conscious about the changes their bodies go through after birth. The makeover helps restore self-confidence and self-image by addressing physical concerns.


Beyond restoring and rebuilding your self-confidence, a mommy makeover provides the following benefits:



Multiple surgeries at one time



Mommy makeovers help you limit the hassle of many schedules, recovery time, and billing. Some individuals would rather have treatment separated due to their isolated goals. There is no set rule opposing this, but mommy makeovers save your time.


Recovery time after a mommy makeover takes up to six weeks. If you choose to have separate surgeries, your recovery time will take many months. Mommy makeovers save your time and money.



Dramatic effect 



Mommy makeovers give physical changes all at once. Your clothes will start fitting better. Your midsection will be leaner and your skin tighter. The results last long if you maintain a healthy lifestyle.



Stretch marks removal 



Pregnancy can leave you with stretch marks around your stomach, thighs, and hips. No number of creams and lotions can get rid of them. A mommy makeover has procedures to remove some of your stretch marks, such as tummy tucks



Cleavage enhancement 



Mommy makeovers have breast procedures that restore the youthful appearance of your cleavage.



Recovery Time



Mommy makeovers recovery time and protocols vary depending on an individual patient’s needs. Recovery time will also depend on the condition of your body before and after the procedure. One benefit of this procedure is you get to have combined surgery that addresses multiple parts of your body with one recovery period. 


Most patients have their mommy makeovers when their children are still young. Doing so helps them get their results early. But you may need to carefully plan about childcare while ensuring you recover well. Some procedures you may have will restrict you from lifting or doing heavy tasks within the first few weeks after surgery. 


Mommy makeovers are successful when performed by board certified plastic surgeons. Typically, most patients confidently wear their bikinis three months after surgery.
