When Should I Consider Mommy Makeover?
As a mother, you are responsible for bringing new life into this world through the miracle of pregnancy and childbirth. Unfortunately, the reproductive process may have also resulted in changes you’re not as excited about. If you have developed skin laxity and loose muscles on your stomach, pockets of fatty tissue, and/or volume loss in your breasts, a mommy makeover from our board certified plastic surgeon may be right for you.
Dr. Richard Zeff performs customized mommy makeovers that utilize the latest surgical and non-surgical cosmetic enhancement techniques. By combining a number of procedures, such as tummy tuck surgery, breast lift, liposuction, and/or cosmetic injectables, he can tailor the operation to suit your singular needs and goals. Each treatment plan will be personalized to suit the patient. Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover should be non-smokers, in good general health, and able to take time off to recover from surgery. Other considerations to keep in mind will be detailed during your initial consultation with Dr. Zeff.
If you’re considering mommy makeover, we recommend that you wait until you’ve finished building your family. During the procedure, Dr. Zeff will address the effects that can occur as a result of pregnancy. You will still be capable of having more children following surgery, of course; however, if you decide to bear children sometime after a mommy makeover procedure, you may experience the same concerns that led to your desire for treatment in the first place. It’s worth noting that you should be able to have another mommy makeover down the line if you decide that is best for your goals. Dr. Zeff will be happy to discuss your plans with you during the consultation.
Along with the joys that accompany motherhood and raising children, there are also some sacrifices. Now is the time to treat yourself and reverse some of the physical changes brought on by pregnancy that may be having an effect on your self-confidence. Mommy makeover procedures from our practice can help you to regain your pre-pregnancy figure and reduce early signs of aging.
