Are you contemplating a mommy makeover in the DC area? Wondering if you are a good candidate for this plastic surgery procedure? Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery can provide information about the recovery period, benefits, and combination of procedures involved.
Scheduling A Consultation For Your DC Mommy Makeover
Scheduling your initial consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons is the first step when you decide to get a mommy makeover surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Bruno or Dr. Brown, you can discuss the procedure logistics, the best course of action, and your specialized treatment plan.
Many moms want to achieve post-pregnancy body goals. Children are a wonderful blessing; however, they also may “bless” your body with sagging breasts, lax abdominal muscles, and or an overall body shape that feels less than desirable.
A DC mommy makeover can help restore your body to its pre-baby glory by lifting breasts, shrinking your waistline, removing excess skin, and more.
During your consultation with our DC mommy makeover surgeons, you may discuss:
- The rejuvenation of the abdomen
- Breast lifts
- Breast enhancements
- Body contouring techniques
- Your lifestyle and activity levels
Mommy Makeover Cost & Details
Each mommy makeover procedure is going to be unique. This is because the exact procedures will depend on what the patient wants and or needs. Mommy makeovers typically involve a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast reduction or lift. All of these procedures can be done at once; that way, patients are back to their everyday life quicker with a faster recovery time than if they had the procedures individually.
During your consultation, we’ll outline each procedure that will be done and answer any questions you have.
Again, the procedures you select will change depending on your personal goals and lifestyle factors that are unique to you.
Should I Get A Mommy Makeover In DC?
If you are wondering if a mommy makeover procedure is right for you, you should ask yourself a few questions:
- Am I done having children?
- Am I still breastfeeding?
Typically, mommy makeovers include breast lifts and tummy tucks, complicating breastfeeding or pregnancy. It is possible that you can have your mommy makeover surgery within a few months. However, most patients are between the 6-12 month time frame following the birth of a child.
It’s also important to note that you may want to wait if you are more than 10-15 pounds from your goal weight. This is because if you have any additional weight loss it can cause sagging.
Read A Real DC Mommy Makeover Experience
We asked one of our patients about their experience at our practice with her mommy makeover. She let us know how she felt about the procedures before, during, and after they were completed.
“How long was your Mommy Makeover recovery?”
“I went back to work a week later! I was tired, my energy wasn’t back, but I was able to work (overtime, actually) the first day back. For a full recovery- exercising, totally back to normal: 6 weeks.”
“Do you have to lose all of the baby weight before having the Mommy Makeover surgery?”
“No, it’s better if your weight is stable rather than trying to lose. Ideally, if you’re trying to lose weight and you plateau and settle in at a weight, [it is] better to just stay there instead of trying to lose that extra weight because chances are it’s skin and fat that you aren’t going to diet or exercise away anyway.”
