Nothing can change a woman’s body like having children, and many Phoenix patients choose a mommy makeover to get their body, and confidence, back to where they want it to be.
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover refers to a combination of procedures that a woman can have done after childbirth to restore her body. To get optimal results, the procedures are all done at the same time. Typically we do a breast procedure, a tummy tuck, and liposuction, but the surgeries that are chosen are customizable to each patient.
Why women choose a mommy makeover
No matter how much women are told to expect changes in their body after pregnancy, nothing can truly prepare you for what happens.
Pregnancy and childbirth often cause very dramatic body changes, and these changes can take a toll on a woman’s self-esteem and confidence. Breasts that were once perky and youthful can lose volume, causing them to appear saggy.
The stomach can develop a bulge that doesn’t go away with exercise, and it can also be very difficult to get rid of excess fat that has accumulated in the love handles, thighs, and hips. Some women also want to treat stretch marks. A mommy makeover truly can provide a much-needed body boost after childbirth.
Is it safe to have multiple procedures at once?
It is totally safe to have multiple surgeries done at the same time, as long as they are performed by a board-certified surgeon with plenty of training and experience, like Dr. Craft. A knowledgeable surgeon understands how to measure the length of the procedures against how long you can be under anesthesia, as well as how to perform the surgeries skillfully and safely.
Do I have to be a mommy to get a mommy makeover?
Although it is called a mommy makeover, individuals who are not mommies can have the procedure as well. Very often, dramatic weight changes or simple aging will cause a woman to seek the improvements that are made with a mommy makeover. The combination of liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast procedure can be the solution to many women’s areas of concern—mommy or not.
Surgical details for a mommy makeover
Because a mommy makeover can involve different operations, the specific details your treatment plan will depend on your specific areas of concern. While a mommy makeover can typically be performed under one surgery/anesthesia, sometimes the procedures have to be done in two sessions if there is extensive work in multiple areas. During your consultation with Dr. Craft, he will discuss a customized plan for you that provides the absolute safest surgical experience. He will also take you step-by-step through the entire process, from prepping to surgery to recovery.
Since a mommy makeover is actually multiple surgeries, patients typically take about ten to 14 days to recover. You will also need someone to help you during that period of time—especially if you have small children. Because different surgeries require different home care and heal at various times, exactly what you should expect will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Craft at his clinic in Phoenix, AZ. He will provide you with all the information you’ll need to know in order to get the best mommy makeover results possible.
