It’s no question that having a child can be one of life’s greatest gifts. However, for many new mothers and those who have been raising children for years, trying to restore their pre-pregnancy figure can often be a very frustrating and daunting task. Mommy Makeover procedures from our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Stafford Broumand, can improve a number of body areas that have been affected by the physical rigors of pregnancy and raising children.
Mommy Makeover procedures are custom-designed for your specific needs. They involve a combination of treatments to help you address a number of issues you may be having with your appearance. The procedure can include breast lift surgery to eliminate excess skin and a “sagging” appearance in the breasts; tummy tuck surgery to tighten abdominal muscles and give the stomach area a firmer, flatter appearance; breast augmentation to restore volume to the breasts; liposuction to get rid of excess fat pockets that can accumulate in a variety of body areas; facial rejuvenation treatments; and other options that can help you meet your unique needs.
I never imagined I would ever get plastic surgery of any kind and after two pregnancies and two c-sections I assumed that I was stuck with a saggy belly forever. After seeing Dr. Broumand’s work on a friend I decided to get a tummy tuck and, although it has only been a few weeks since the surgery, I can already honestly say that it was one of the best decisions I ever made. When Dr. Broumand took off the bandages at my one week appointment I was completely stunned – I look like a brand new person. My husband was speechless when he saw the results. I am already walking taller, more confident and thrilled with my new body. Dr. Broumand is a miracle worker – I can’t recommend him highly enough! – D.B.
Results and Recovery
Recovery and results from a mommy makeover will vary depending on the specific combination of treatments and procedures you receive, as well as the rate at which your body naturally heals. Discomfort within the first 48 hours can often be significantly reduced with Dr. Broumand’s pain management technique called EXPAREL®; however, it is crucial you have a friend of family member available to help around the house with everyday tasks, such as lifting and/or taking care of children, during the initial stages of recovery.
Ultimately, your mommy makeover procedure will be tailored to fit your specific needs, taking both your lifestyle and timeframe for recovery into account. Resuming strenuous activities too early could potentially compromise your end results, so Dr. Broumand stresses the importance of returning to daily routines only when you feel comfortable enough to do so.
