Are You Ready for These Mommy Makeover Benefits?

The Mommy Makeover is a set of procedures that has been developed to address the changes that are often related to pregnancy and nursing. However, it should be understood that the breast and body procedures that are often involved in a customized Mommy Makeover process are suitable for all women who want to improve more than one area of the body at once. This plastic surgery treatment has been popular for many years. Here, we discuss some of the benefits that make it so.

Total Body Contouring

Making adjustments to a single part of the body can be hugely rewarding. In many cases, it is safe to say that less is more. When it comes to body and breast contouring, we may have some wiggle room on this idea. One of the most satisfying aspects of the Mommy Makeover is that it can contour adjacent areas and, in so doing, enhance the outcome of treatment. For example, when liposuction and/or abdominoplasty is performed, the appearance of the breasts may be significantly improved through subtle lifting or augmentation. Because every Mommy Makeover is designed around the patient, it is possible to achieve even more comprehensive contouring by adding thigh liposuction or other procedures.

Better Body Proportions

The purpose of body and breast procedures is to create more harmony across the body as a whole. Nuanced enhancements to the breasts and midsection alone can result in a more shapely body frame. With better proportions, patients may have a much easier time fitting into clothing styles that were previously uncomfortable or simply not an option due to exaggerated curves.

Combining Surgeries can Save Money

Looking at the cost of a Mommy Makeover, one may observe that they will pay more than they would if they simply had liposuction or breast augmentation. However, when we add up the costs associated with individual procedures, including office visits, anesthesia, and surgical fees, we see that combining surgeries is a more cost-effective approach than scheduling each out separately.

Combining Surgeries can Save Time

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures. However, the body heals all treated areas at the same time. When scheduling time off for a Mommy Makeover, patients might look primarily at their longest recovery time. For example, tummy tuck patients typically have more restrictions for a longer period of time than patients who have breast augmentation. For the Mommy Makeover, we don’t add the two separate estimates together, we simply look at the longer recovery timeframe for suggested time off. In general, patients may need two to three weeks to resume most of their normal, light activities after their Mommy Makeover.
