Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
Mommy makeovers are versatile procedures that address several aesthetic concerns and offer a number of benefits, including:
- Restored breast fullness
- Lifted, youthful-looking breasts
- A flatter, firmer tummy
- Improved appearance in clothing
- Increased self-confidence
Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?
The main objective of a mommy makeover is to help restore the figure you enjoyed before pregnancy. Mommy makeovers are designed to address specific problem-areas such as the breasts and abdomen. Women often undergo mommy makeovers to correct:
- Visible fat accumulation on the midsection
- Loose abdominal skin accompanied by stretch marks around the waistline
- Sagging or asymmetrical breasts, drooping nipples, and stretched areolas
- Reduced breast volume
- Significant increase in breast volume, causing a disproportionate look or physical discomfort.
Our plastic surgeons will discuss your concerns and desired outcome during your initial consultation. Ideal mommy makeover candidates are in good overall health. If you smoke, you will need to quit before your procedure and throughout your recovery.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?
To repair a variety of breast and body issues following pregnancy and nursing, mommy makeovers typically involve a combination of multiple procedures, such as:
These procedures can be performed alone or in combination, depending on your unique goals and physical characteristics. We also offer a number of non-surgical services to further enhance your mommy makeover results.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Mommy makeovers involve multiple procedures, so it is important to allow uninterrupted time for your body to rest and heal. Considering the many responsibilities of new mothers, simply finding time to rest can be a challenge. You will likely need the support of family and loved ones during this time.
You will be fitted with the necessary garments and bandages following your surgery. These will help to minimize swelling and maximize healing. You will also be given detailed instructions for how to prepare for your surgery and postoperative instructions to ensure your recovery is as quick and comfortable as possible. It will be crucial to follow these instructions closely.
Recovery periods usually last approximately three to four weeks. You should avoid exercise and limit your activities during this period. Following your recovery, proper diet and exercise will help you maintain your results.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The cost of mommy makeovers varies. The price of your surgery will be based on the individual procedures you choose and the degree of work needed to achieve your ideal outcome. The procedures involved in mommy makeovers are generally considered elective surgeries and are not typically covered by health insurance.
If you would prefer to not pay for your mommy makeover out-of-pocket, New Jersey Plastic Surgery offers financing options through PatientFi and CareCredit. Our staff will be happy to explain all of your payment options. We will provide you with any necessary financing information you need at your initial visit.
