I am Considering A Mommy Makeover. Should I Lose Weight First?
Do you want to get your pre-pregnancy body back after having children? At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang, offers consultations where he answers any questions or concerns you have about mommy makeover procedures. During this visit, he also can determine if you’re a candidate for surgery. We recommend that our patients be no more than 25 pounds over their goal weight for at least six weeks to be eligible for a mommy makeover in Atlanta, GA.
This body contouring surgery can reshape and sculpt your body with fat reduction, removal of loose skin after pregnancy, and skin tightening. While some fat is removed during your mommy makeover, don’t expect to lose a lot of weight with mommy makeover surgery.
Who is a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
You are a good candidate for a mommy makeover in Atlanta, GA when you are:
In good health
Within 25 pounds of your recommended weight for at least six weeks
Done having children
Ultimately, a mommy makeover helps women to reclaim their pre-pregnancy body with a series of different procedures.
What does a mommy makeover include?
A mommy makeover can include one procedure or a combination of cosmetic surgeries. These mommy makeover procedures target sagging or loose skin, droopy or deflated breasts, and excess fat. Our professional team helps Atlanta mothers feel more confident about their bodies after pregnancy. Dr. Mang uses a combination of techniques to address problem areas on each patient’s body.
The areas that Dr. Mang can treat during a mommy makeover include:
Abdominals: Excess fat, loose and sagging skin, or stretch marks can be fixed during a mommy makeover. Liposuction during a tummy tuck can rectify the abdominal area. A tummy tuck tightens any muscle separation, known as diastasis recti, which some mothers experience.
Breasts: Sagging breasts, loss of breast tissue or volume, and excess skin can all be addressed during a breast augmentation, breast augmentation with fat grafting, or a breast lift by Dr. Mang.
Lower body: Excess fat or sagging skin in the buttocks, hips, or thighs can be improved with the help of a lower body lift that may also include liposuction or skin tightening.
What to expect after a mommy makeover
After your mommy makeover surgery, you will recover from home. The amount of time that it will take to recover depends on the surgeries performed. To ensure you heal properly, follow all of Dr. Mang’s aftercare instructions. The entire recovery period can take up to six months.
