Many mothers discover that their bodies do not return to their pre-baby form after having one or more children. Pregnancy causes a woman’s body to store fat and forces the skin and muscles to stretch in preparation for the stress of childbirth and breastfeeding.
While some of these changes will reverse on their own, others are impossible to improve without surgical assistance. Mommy Makeover surgery utilizes a combination of plastic surgery procedures that help you achieve a tighter, firmer body with attractive, confidence-enhancing contours.
Mommy Makeover surgery is customized to you, but it usually involves some combination of breast enhancement and body contouring techniques.
“Just a note to say that your professionalism and expertise are truly amazing. Thanks for your kindness throughout the whole process. You’re simply the absolute best!”
“Thank you for taking such good care of me. I really felt confident that you sincerely care about your patients and their comfort.”
“Just wanted to thank you all for everything. You guys are wonderful and I will share it with everyone. Thanks again. You guys are the best.”
Your Mommy Makeover recovery period will vary depending on which procedures are best for you.
Mommy Makeover surgery is an outpatient procedure, and you can return home shortly after the operation. You will need to have someone drive you home and stay with you for the first one to two days and have help with all household chores and childcare, for at least one week.
You can expect to take up to two weeks off of work and all of your regular activities. Heavy lifting—children, weights, laundry, groceries—and strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least four to six weeks to ensure that you are healing in the best way.
Dr. Alexander will give you a detailed explanation about what you can expect and how to best manage your life during your recovery period.
Scarring is an inevitable result of any surgical procedure; however, Dr. Alexander does his best to make the incisions as small, hidden, and meticulously placed as possible.
The location and extent of your scars will depend on the surgical techniques performed. Dr. Alexander will inform you about all of your surgical incisions during your consultation so that you will know what to expect for your scarring.
All surgical scars usually fade with time and, in select patients, may be lessened with scar creams and silicone strips.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the world’s most popular injectable treatment. While this injectable is derived from a toxin and works by interfering with muscle contraction, it is safe. This treatment is FDA approved, and the effects of the treatment are not permanent even with repeated injectable sessions. As with any medicine, there can be side effects, such as an allergic reaction or eyelid sagging. Major complications are rare.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is appropriate for men and women of all ages. Candidates should be in good health with no allergies to BOTOX® Cosmetic or other botulinum toxin treatment and have no existing nerve or muscle conditions. Men and women considering BOTOX® Cosmetic may experience dissatisfaction from at least one of the following:
While the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles is the primary usage for BOTOX® Cosmetic, anti-aging was not the original purpose of BOTOX®. BOTOX® can also be used to treat chronic migraines, reduce underarm sweating, and control muscle spasms.
Most patients experience smooth skin and wrinkle reduction for three months, if not longer. Eventually, the muscles will begin to contract again, causing the return of the fine lines and wrinkles. Most patients schedule repeated treatments every three to six months to maintain lasting smoothness.
