Becoming a mother is one of the best moments in many women’s lives, but it also comes with challenges, especially physical ones. Carrying a child and giving birth takes a huge toll on the body. For a mother, the bodily effects of giving birth to and breastfeeding a child can remain for a long time afterward and might not fully go away naturally. The skin in the breast and abdominal areas can get loose and begin to sag. That’s why so many women opt for post-pregnancy plastic surgery, also known as mommy makeover surgery

While having a child is a blessing, we know that it can leave many feeling insecure about their bodies after. The changes your body experiences during pregnancy can be difficult, but we can help at Bruno Plastic Surgery with services such as our mommy makeover surgery. 

What Does Mommy Makeover Surgery Help With?

Mommy makeover surgery targets a few different areas of the body that are affected by pregnancy. This is an umbrella term for a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and all the other procedures that make those sagging areas of the body tight and firm again. The procedures a person gets during mommy makeover surgery are typically done all at once. Some may need additional sessions depending on the extent of their surgery. With these procedures, women can regain the body they had prior to their pregnancy. What exact procedure a woman gets for this surgery can vary, so it’s different from person to person. You don’t have to get every procedure that can be performed during a mommy makeover, only the ones that address your needs. 

Most people can go home on the same day as their surgery. Recovery from this surgery can vary depending on the procedures you get, but you’ll typically need several weeks to recover. You may need even more time to do any heavy lifting or other strenuous activities. It can take months for swelling to fully go away, and the results will become more noticeable as the swelling goes down. You should wait to get mommy makeover surgery until you’re sure you’re done having children so that the results aren’t undone. Some of the results might fade as you age, but staying at a healthy weight can help you get the most out of the procedure.
