We all are familiar with the quintessential picture the term “Dad bod” paints in our minds. And it doesn’t look anything like in the movies. Well, moms have it no more different. In contrast to their male counterpart, “Mom bod” tend to face more ridicule. This has led to the rise in mommy makeover costs in Mexico and other parts of the world.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover is basically a catch phrase for every specialized cosmetic surgery and body contouring procedure performed to result in an overall enhanced and appealing appearance of a mother’s body. According to our professional experts of cosmetic surgery in Mexico, a “mommy makeover” majorly targets the breasts and the abdominal area of a woman since these two areas primarily undergo the maximum change during pregnancy. Nursing further makes for noticeable changes that contributes to the sagging and volume loss from breasts. Pregnancy takes a heavy toll on the body of a woman. The muscles and skin of the abdominal area undergo a lot of stretching to safely accommodate the growing baby. However, these layers donot bounce back to the taut, pre-baby shape.
A mommy makeover session may include breast lift and augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, breast reduction, circumferential abdominoplasty and many more procedures according to one’s preference. Mommy makeover surgery can include more procedures such as thigh lifts, arm tightening and even a brazilian butt lift depending upon the level of enhancement and look one is trying to achieve.
These surgeries have helped many aspiring mothers to achieve their desired body types without any complications. However, our medical experts while dealing with clients often come across a few common concerns. Following are the most commonly asked questions:
Can anyone go in for a mommy makeover?
This session is for every mother who wish to leave the “mom bod”. However, your lifestyle does come into play. In case you smoke, you need to give up this habit atleast for the duration of the procedure. Smoking reduces blood circulation, thus, causing delay in wound healing and recovery.
Post surgery are there any more requirements?
You cannot do any heavy lifting or operate any heavy machinery for the initial few weeks. That includes includes even carrying your babies. As a patient who underwent a surgery recently you will be under a lot of medications and narcotics. Therefore, it is advisable to not drive a car for a while. Also, you need to maintain a good diet and regular exercise regime to maintain the long-term impact of the surgery.
What is the recovery period?
The recovery tends to vary from patient to patient. It usually ranges between one to two weeks. Post that, there is slight soreness, bruising, and swelling. Swelling may last upto 6 months to 1 year. Post that full results are visible.
Does the quality of surgeon matter?
In case you are not looking for a substandard procedure with unequal and below average results, quality matters. Look for a medical practitioner’s performance record, patient reviews, qualification, certification, and experience.
