Although you may be longing to have that initial body, you had before pregnancy, or before giving birth, pregnancy can take a toll on your body, affecting your breasts, tummies, and legs among others. Fortunately, the introduction of this surgery has come at the right time to boost the appearance of our bodies after pregnancy. The rejuvenation of the abdomen and breasts is referred to as mommy makeover. The primary goal of this procedure is to address certain physical changes, which occur in the aftermath of pregnancy. For instance, breasts tend to deflate and sag while the abdomen tends to have excess skin that bulges and has stretch marks.
The best candidate for a mommy makeover Houston is a woman whose health is completely good and is done with her childbearing. It is commendable for women to achieve a stable weight after completing childbearing to prevent significant weight loss or weight gain from diminishing the final results after the surgery. There are three main processes involved in the mommy makeover surgery; first is a Houston breast lift, by adding Houston breast implants to counter the volume lost due to breastfeeding or pregnancy. Breast lifting is also done to reduce the sizes of the breasts that are excessively large thus causing discomfort. The second phase is abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck Houston, which involves the tightening of the abdominal muscles to constrict the waist and strengthen the midsection. Removal of the excess lower abdominal skin with stretch marks is the third phase.
Recovering from mommy makeover surgery ranges from 2-4 weeks. However, some women feel better soon and prefer going back to work a week after the surgery. Besides the tummy tuck, fat removal, and the breast enhancement, other treatments that combine with mommy makeover include cellulite treatments, elimination of stretch marks and tightening of the skin. The cost of mommy makeover surgery not only depends on the location but also consists of three components: A surgeon’s professional fee, the cost of the operating room and the professional fee for anesthesia. Operations are considered cosmetics operations, therefore, are not covered by Insurance companies.
Similar, to other operations, a mommy makeover can result to complications; hence, it is important to seek an initial consultation before and after the surgery. Additionally, it is advisable to carry out light tasks after the operations until that time you will recover completely, approximately 2-4 weeks.
