Koger Cosmetic Clinic & Medspa offers mommy makeovers for women in Palm Beach County, including West Palm Beach, Vero Beach, Wellington, and the surrounding areas of Florida.
Being a mother is one of the most rewarding things on earth. However, motherhood takes a toll on a woman’s appearance. Many mothers experience unwanted sagging and weight gain. Of course, the body can be reshaped through diet and exercise. But diet and exercise have their limitations and become more difficult after becoming a mother.
A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgeries that correct the aesthetic problems caused by the stress of motherhood. These surgeries can include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction.
About the mommy makeover
Dr. Koger describes the surgical plan for your mommy makeover during the consultation. He may opt to perform one or more procedures during a single surgical appointment, or he may determine that allowing your body to heal from one procedure first is the best approach.
Benefits of a mommy makeover
- Procedures chosen based on individual patient needs and desires
- Restores breasts, abdomen, thighs and other areas of the body
- May be combined with medical spa treatments
Candidates for a mommy makeover
Before undergoing a cosmetic procedure on your body, your weight must be stable and normal and you should already have lost your excess pregnancy weight. You will need to keep your weight steady. If you breastfeed your child, you must wait until your child has already been weaned so that your breasts are stable enough for surgery. Another very important question is whether you plan to have more children, as it’s best to wait until you’re finished having children.
Planning your mommy makeover
Those receiving a mommy makeover will first undergo a thorough consultation with Dr. Koger to determine what some appropriate options are. Women who have lost their breasts’ youthful shape may desire a breast lift. Women who have lost the fullness in their breasts may opt for a breast augmentation.
Women who are unhappy with the appearance of their stomach after childbirth may benefit from an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. A “mini-abdominoplasty” is available for women who are not in need of a complete tummy tuck. Localized areas of excess fat can be solved with liposuction. Liposuction is great for the buttocks, thighs, flanks, hips, and back.
Where your mommy makeover is performed
The procedures that are included in your mommy makeover may be performed on an outpatient basis or you may need to stay in the hospital. To the extent possible, Dr. Koger plans the surgeries to reduce downtime and any time that you spend away from home.
Type of anesthesia for your mommy makeover
Most Mommy Makeover procedures require general anesthesia.
After your mommy makeover
Healing and recovery times for a mommy makeover are based upon the nature of the procedures and if the surgeries are performed in combination. Dr. Koger provides instructions on your healing process during the consultation, and he sends home instructions that you should follow carefully.
Getting back to normal after a mommy makeover
You will likely have some restrictions to your activities after your mommy makeover procedures. Healing can take several weeks or months.
Your new look after a mommy makeover
Once the swelling subsides, you will be able to see the full results of your mommy makeover. The scars will heal as bright pink and gradually fade over time. Scars will not completely disappear.
