Mommy makeover surgery focuses on the areas of the body impacted most by pregnancy and nursing. Depending on your specific needs and desires this may include:
- Breast Augmentation to address issues like volume loss and asymmetry
- Breast Lift to restore a firm and lifted appearance to the chest
- Liposuction to remove stubborn fat deposits from ankles, thighs, hips, waist, back, and arms
- Tummy Tuck to remove excess skin, eliminate stretch marks, reattach separated abdominal muscles, and tone the entire midsection
To learn which procedures will be useful in your mommy makeover, call our Andover or Nashua office and schedule a private and confidential consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George Chatson today.
Are You a Good Mommy Makeover Candidate?
Mommy makeover focuses on the impacts of pregnancy and nursing such as fat accumulation, skin stretching and sagging, and diastasis recti. Because these physical changes are often unavoidable during and following pregnancy, the best candidates for mommy makeover surgery are women who do not plan on having more children.
Having a mommy makeover will not interfere with your ability to have more children, but subsequent pregnancies will almost certainly undo the results obtained through your initial surgery.
Additional candidacy considerations for mommy makeover include being:
- A nonsmoker
- In good health
- Close to your ideal BMI
- Able to follow all pre and postoperative instructions
- Realistic with expectations and goals
Can You Take Time to Rest?
An important consideration before looking into mommy makeover surgery is your ability to take time away from work, social, and family obligations to heal. Dr. Chatson utilizes advanced techniques, such as SAFELipo™, which help reduce risks and recovery time, but you will still need a few days to rest completely, and a few weeks of reduced activity, to allow your body to heal.
Having time to rest and recover is essential for your health and can help ensure the most pleasing results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Chatson will discuss this with you in greater detail to help you determine if a surgical procedure now, or at a later time, will be best for your particular needs.
