Mommy Makeover surgery is becoming a popular procedure among women who are done having children. This whole-body experience is designed to give women a look they love from head to toe.

Mommy Makeovers in Florida can help you lose weight, sculpt your body and address concerns about sagging breasts. 

Why Should I Have a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is actually a combination of several different procedures that are used to achieve your ultimate body goal. In general, all of these procedures are performed at the same time so once you've recovered you will have the perfect body.

Common Procedures

Since each individual is different, the exact surgeries involved in your procedure will vary, but here are some of the most common: 

Tummy tuckThe tummy tuck is used to eliminate fat and sagging skin in the tummy area. This is especially common after multiple pregnancies or after a C-section when the skin above the scar remains loose.

Liposuction: Liposuction is used in conjunction with different tummy tucks to help remove fat deposits in the thighs, butt and love handles.

Breast Augmentation: For minor drooping of the breasts or women who desire an increase in volume of the breast, an implant may be placed at the time of the surgery.

Breast lift: Similar to a breast augmentation, this procedure lifts the breasts and makes them more symmetrical if the effects of breastfeeding have taken effect. Oftentimes, the breast lift is performed at the same time as a breast augmentation for best results. 

Breast reduction: Many women experience permanent increases in the size of their breasts post-pregnancy. A breast reduction can be used to reduce back pain and discomfort caused by this change. 

Labiaplasty: Some women become self-conscious about the appearance of their labia following the delivery of a child. Labiaplasty is an optional procedure to go along with all of the above.

Recovery After Mommy Makeover

Due to the complex nature of this procedure, you must plan for a lengthy recovery period. However, if you have all of the surgeries performed at one time you can drastically reduce your recovery time. Typically the first week after your surgery is spent resting. From two to three weeks you are able to move around and take it easy. By six weeks you should be allowed to go back to normal activity.
