Plastic Surgery for Moms in Los Angeles
If you’ve had children, especially if you’ve had more than one, you know what pregnancy and breast feeding can do to your body. Those nine months of carrying a baby in your belly, hours of labor and the additional months of breast feeding all add up to changes that are not at all what you necessarily want to see when you look in the mirror. While the gift of having your child is something you would never trade for, you don’t have to choose between being a mother and having the body that you want for yourself. Many Los Angeles mothers of all ages have been undergoing mommy makeover procedures to take back their figures and show moms don’t have to sacrifice looking or feeling sexy.
How Does a Mommy Makeover Work?
A mommy makeover is the name given to a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures designed to address the effects of pregnancy on the female body.
Common problems can be improved with a mommy makeover, such as:
- Sagging breasts
- Breasts that have lost volume
- Loose abdominal skin
- Stubborn hard-to-lose fat
Many of these changes cannot be solved with diet and exercise alone, so all-too-often, mothers simply go on living unhappy with their bodies. Women who undergo a mommy makeover are many times brought to tears upon seeing their life-changing results.
Each woman’s body experiences pregnancy differently, so not every woman considering a mommy makeover will require all of the same procedures. Normally, a mommy makeover will include some combination of breast enhancement (such as breast augmentation or a breast lift) and body contouring (tummy tuck, liposuction, etc). Each procedure will address a different problem. It is recommended that women considering a mommy makeover are done having children so as to avoid diminishing the results due to future pregnancies.
How Long Will it Take to Recover from a Mommy Makeover?
Recovering from your mommy makeover will take some time, so it is important you have plenty of help from your family as you heal. Now is your chance to rest in bed or on the couch while your children and spouse help with the chores around the house. Most women will need about 10-14 days before returning to work and their daily routines.
As your body continues to heal, bruising and swelling will go down and your scars will begin to fade. You will begin feeling the way you did before becoming pregnant, maybe even better! Our Los Angeles mommy makeover patients have seen incredible results with their procedures and often go on to live happier lives now that they are comfortable with their bodies.
