Let’s talk about Mommy Makeover

In the course of our life we go through different stages after being born, including studying and meeting a partner with whom we will have children, and for a woman who wishes to have children is a mission that ends on many occasions with a body with which she is not happy. The procreation stage brings her a lot of happiness because she loves her children even though she sometimes hates what they did with her body during pregnancies. This need not be so.

There are a number of surgical procedures that will help a woman feel as beautiful as she felt before beginning this beautiful stage of her life. Although, you must be aware that your body will never be the same … for procreation must be added aging and possibly obesity. By the way, the latter has a solution available to everyone, it is solved basically by eating less and exercising.

But what does Mommy Makeover consist of?

It is a surgery that every mom who has finished her reproductive life and has decided to do something for her body has access to, due generally you are already exercising and have decided on a healthier diet without excesses but you realize that this is not enough…

Your breasts lack volume or look saggy. Or both. Your abdomen has excess skin and there is fat that you cannot get rid of, no matter what exercise routine you do or how strict the diet is, there are things that pregnancies and age have changed and you will not be able to solve. Here comes plastic surgery:

In your abdomen you can do a tummy tuck with which that excess skin will be corrected and your silhouette will be molded, even the fat obtained during liposuction prior to skin cutting will be available to increase the volume of your buttocks.

In the breasts things change a bit: there are more options.

If your breasts grew a lot and sagged they can be reduced and lifted. If they lose volume and look saggy, it can be resolved with breast implants to return them to the size that you would like them to have. And sometimes they just look saggy and you don’t want them bigger; in that case, a mastopexy is performed which is exclusively a lift for your breasts.

This surgery always requires a 24-hour hospitalization and can be done under general anesthesia or regional anesthesia (the choice of anesthetic technique is individualized for each patient in an anesthetic evaluation prior to surgery).

The surgical time varies from 3 to 4 hours later, in relation to the surgical procedures that each patient requires, you will go to a recovery area where you will stay 1 or 2 more hours before going to your room where you will spend the night.

The patient is expected to be on relative rest for at least one to two weeks after surgery.

The surgery stitches are removed in 2 weeks, and after the third week, you can begin exercising.

Surgical treatment must be performed by a certified plastic surgeon with experience in this type of surgery.
