Tampa Surgical Arts Can Complete the Mommy Makeover You’ve Been Craving
Pregnancy and childbirth are a beautiful thing, but they can also have a drastic effect on a woman’s body. Between sagging breasts and excess skin around the abdomen, butt, and waist, many women feel self-conscious about their post-pregnancy bodies and barely recognize the person that looks back at them in the mirror. At Tampa Surgical Arts, we want to help mothers unleash their beauty and find their confidence once again, which is why we offer mommy makeover services in Tampa Bay, Florida, and throughout the Tampa Bay Area. You’ll be seen by our triple-board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi, who will ensure you are given personalized, compassionate care that meets your needs.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover refers to the range of cosmetic surgery procedures a woman may choose to undergo after childbirth to reclaim her pre-pregnancy body. It can involve:
- A breast augmentation, lift, or reduction
- A tummy tuck
- A butt lift
How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
A mommy makeover is completely customizable to your needs. During your initial consultation with Dr. Bedi, he will assess your body, learn about your goals, and work with you to come up with the right surgical procedures for you. During this whole process, you will be encouraged to ask questions and make your needs known to ensure you receive the mommy makeover you expected.
In many cases, Dr. Bedi can complete the mommy makeover during one outpatient procedure, although this can depend on the number of procedures you decide to undergo. General anesthesia will be used during the surgery, so keep in mind that you will need someone to drive you home and you may be groggy for the rest of the day as you recover.
What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?
The benefits are twofold – both physical and mental. With the elimination of sagging skin and excess fat, your body will be reshaped to more youthful contours – and you may even look better than you did pre-pregnancy! This also has a massive impact on your own confidence and overall wellbeing, which will lead to being a happier mother overall. And there’s no better benefit than that.
What Are Some of the Other Treatment Considerations for This Procedure?
It is generally best to wait until you are done having children to undergo a mommy makeover. While this procedure does not eliminate the ability to have children, you can reverse the effects if you get pregnant again a few years down the road.
You also want to be at or near your ideal weight, be in good physical health, and have realistic expectations for what a mommy makeover can do for you. All of these factors will make the recovery process much easier.
What Should I Expect After the Procedure?
The recovery process is different from patient to patient, especially for mommy makeovers, since they vary widely in specific procedures. In general, you can expect to leave the clinic with bandages and/or compression garments around the surgery sites, which will need to stay on for a period of time to promote healing and reduce swelling.
Our team here at Tampa Surgical Arts will also prepare a detailed package about the recovery process, so you know exactly how to care for your surgical sites and what to expect. And, of course, we’ll always be around to answer your questions as you recover.
