What You Should Know About the Mommy Makeover

Dr. Lee Colony  In: Mommy Makeover

Today’s society is very focused on celebrities, whether it be their careers, personal lives, or what they are wearing. One of the biggest things we seem to focus on are celeb bodies—magazines, blog posts, and celebrity news channels are constantly critical of celeb’s weight gain or weight loss. And, this seems to be magnified when a celebrity is pregnant and after she has her child. While many celebs seem to snap back to their pre-baby figure just days after giving birth, this expectation is an unrealistic one. Restrictive diets, obsessive workout plans, and dangerous weight loss pills are not the way to go to achieve a slimmer physique. Read on to learn about how you can restore your pre-baby figure, the safe way.

The Mommy Makeover

While diet and exercise are definitely great ways to shed extra pregnancy pounds, these tactics may not be able to restore sagging breasts, weakened abdominal muscles, and excess skin. For these issues, a mommy makeover can help! The mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic procedures done to restore a pre-baby figure. These procedures can consist of a breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, tummy tuck, labiaplasty, and more.

The mommy makeover is a highly customizable procedure, so each woman’s surgical plan will be unique to their aesthetic goals. During your consultation with Dr. Colony, an examination will be done to determine which procedures will benefit you. Then, a custom plan will be created, and any questions you may have will be answered.

Is A Mommy Makeover Right for You?

The first thing to understand about the mommy makeover is that is it a body contouring procedure, and not a weight loss solution. Women should be at their goal weight for at least six months, and have stopped breastfeeding for six months before undergoing a mommy makeover. Breastfeeding needs to have been completed so that the breasts return to their normal size, and milk is no longer being produced.
