Undoubtedly, having children is one of the most rewarding experiences in life. But it also comes with some major changes – both physically and emotionally. One of the most significant changes is in your body. After pregnancy and childbirth, many women find that their bodies have changed in ways they didn’t expect. Some of these changes can be addressed with diet and exercise, but others may require more significant interventions.

help a mom regain her pre-baby body. Some of the most typical procedures included in a mommy makeover are breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, and a tummy tuck. As each woman is different, each mommy makeover procedure is different as well.

The changes that occur during pregnancy and childbirth can cause the breasts to sag, the stomach to protrude, and the skin to stretch.

Walkthrough of Your Mommy Makeover
If you are a woman considering a Mommy Makeover surgery, you might wonder what the procedure entails. Here is a detailed walkthrough of the procedure so that you can have a better understanding of what to expect:
It is important to have a discussion – or consultation – with your Florida plastic surgeon, Dr. Avron, before having a mommy makeover procedure. Every woman is unique, and every surgery is customized based on her goals.
During your consultation, Dr. Avron will discuss your expectations and areas you would like to treat for your mommy makeover. Once there is an understanding of your goals, Dr. Avron will recommend the best options for you and your mommy makeover. Once you’ve decided on the procedure(s) you’d like to have, Dr. Avron will walk you through the steps of the surgery so that you know what to expect.
The surgery in a mommy makeover can vary from woman to woman, but most mommy makeovers will include one or more breast surgeries and one or more body contouring procedures. The number of procedures performed will also vary from woman to woman. Some women may choose to have all their procedures performed in a single surgery, while others may prefer to have them scheduled separately. Combining multiple procedures into one surgery allows patients to take less time away from work and other daily activities.
Each patient is different and will have different Recover time frames depending on which procedures they have done as part of their mommy makeover. Generally speaking, patients can expect to take 1-2 weeks off from work and other activities. During this time, patients will need help taking care of themselves and their household as they recover from surgery. Patients are normally able to return to all normal activities within 4-6 weeks following surgery.
