Pregnancy can take a toll on your body leaving your abdominal muscles less tight than they once were, your breasts may sag more, and the shape of your body may be different than what it was before. Diet and exercise can certainly help, but it and may not get you back to the body you desire. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your post-pregnancy body, you may want to consider a mommy makeover in Washington, DC.
What the DC mommy makeover procedure includes
During your consultation, we will go over your goals for the procedure and figure out what works best for you. Some people need (or want) more procedures than others, so it’s ultimately up to you which problem areas you would like to address. The mommy makeover typically involves a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast enhancement/breast lift.
When is the right time for a mommy makeover in DC?
Being a mother is a full-time job, and it’s hard to put a pause on life. The mommy makeover has a relatively short recovery time of 2-3 weeks, and you typically won’t need to stay overnight in the hospital. We try to get you back on your feet as soon as possible following the procedure.
During your consultation, we can come up with a timeline that works for you, and we’ll discuss your options as a candidate. For the mommy makeover, you must make sure you’re not breastfeeding, are at least four to six months post-childbirth, and are close to your ideal body weight. This will help us achieve the best results possible and ensure a successful procedure.
Some of the benefits of a mommy makeover in DC are:
- We can remove excess skin– After pregnancy, you may have excess or loose and hanging skin around your abdominal area that you’re unhappy with. We can address these areas by removing excess skin to smooth the look of your stomach.
- We can improve the look of your breasts– Breastfeeding and pregnancy can take a toll on your breasts, leaving them saggy and less full. We can give your breasts a lift and help restore your pre-pregnancy look.
- Your self-confidence will get a boost– When you look good, you tend to feel better and more confident. We’ll discuss your goals and go through the procedure to improve your overall confidence with your body.
- We can diminish the appearance of stretch marks– The weight gain from pregnancy often leaves behind stretch marks. If this is an issue you’d like address, we can help diminish their appearance and smooth out the skin.
