Motherhood changes lives forever, most often for the better despite a few bumps in the road. Women who become pregnant know that their body will undergo the most magnificent changes through 9 months of pregnancy and many months of breastfeeding. They know, thanks to body-positive new mom influencers and supportive partners, that it can take time for the body to bounce back after having a child. There is no rush to return to the status quo, and by that we mean pre-pregnancy weight and contours. No rush whatsoever. What we support is a woman’s ability to feel great about herself. For some, that comes in the form of a Mommy Makeover. Here we answer common questions that we receive from patients considering this treatment.
What is Involved in a Mommy Makeover?
When a woman comes in to consult with Dr. Dahan about a Mommy Makeover, she often expects to discuss breasts and belly issues. Of course, this is normal because the breasts and abdominal area take on a lot of the stress of pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, there is no need to limit a Mommy Makeover to a particular set of procedures. Remember, it’s called a Mommy Makeover, which could be as comprehensive as each patient desires it to be. Some of the procedures that our patients may consider include:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast implant exchange
- Breast lift
- Liposuction on the abdomen, thighs, back, or other area
- CoolSculpting nonsurgical body contouring
- Fat injections for facial enhancement
- ThermiTight nonsurgical skin tightening
- ThermiVa nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation
- Cellfina cellulite treatment
As you can see, we truly do not limit treatment choices to the perceived norm. Our comprehensive menu of services and patient-centered care make the Mommy Makeover process that much more exciting.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
With such a wide variety of surgical and nonsurgical treatment options, the only way to estimate the total cost of a Mommy Makeover is via a consultation and thorough discussion of concerns and desired outcome. We’re here and ready to schedule a visit for you!
How Painful is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover treatment is rarely as uncomfortable as patients expect. Surgery performed under general anesthesia is painless because the body’s pain receptors are temporarily disabled. Once the anesthesia starts to wear off, compression garments are already in place to mitigate postoperative swelling and pain. Furthermore, patients who take their prescribed pain medication strictly as directed stand a very good chance of having only mild to moderate soreness and tenderness as they recover.
