Motherhood can significantly affect your figure, leaving you with stretched-out skin, sagging or deflated breasts, and stubborn fat pockets. As one of the leading plastic surgeons in South Jersey, I help women get their pre-baby bodies back with a procedure called a mommy makeover. It can treat several different aesthetic concerns at once, as it’s an all-in-one procedure. In this post, we will talk about the benefits of mommy makeovers and why combining surgeries is a great way to achieve your cosmetic goals.
During your consultation, we will discuss your concerns and create a treatment plan that fits your specific needs. Typically, a mommy makeover includes one of more of the following procedures:
• Tummy tuck
• Breast augmentation
• Breast lift
There are certain fees that patients pay when they undergo plastic surgery. Of course, the first is the surgeon’s fee. However, patients must also pay a facility fee and an anesthesia fee. When you combine procedures, you will pay the surgical fee for each procedure, but you will only need to pay the other 2 fees once.
If you decide to separate the procedures, the total cost ends up higher overall. This is another reason why it is important to really think about what your aesthetic goals are before solidifying a surgical plan.
Recovering after surgery can be uncomfortable and requires you to take some time off work and other daily activities. Additionally, you will need extra help around the house, especially if you have pets or small children. If you combine your procedures, you will only need to go through a single recovery. This means you won’t have to take off as many days, which will also save you money. Most importantly, you will only have to endure the soreness and fatigue that comes with surgical recovery once.
Fewer Doctor Appointments
Because you will only have a single operation, you won’t need as many pre-op and post-op doctor visits. Let’s face it, for most of us going to the doctor can be a bit stressful, as well as inconvenient. It can be hard to fit these appointments into your busy schedule.
Holistic & Immediate Results
A mommy makeover can help restore a mother’s body by tackling multiple target areas in one surgery. You will be able to notice improvements immediately after surgery. And, in the weeks and months following surgery, swelling and bruising will diminish, revealing an even smoother, tighter abdomen and shapelier, lifted breasts.
