What can mommy makeover do?
The final results of mommy makeover surgery may not be apparent for several months after surgery. After some time, the implants will settle and the scar lines will improve, although they’ll never disappear completely. There are trade-offs, but most women feel these are small compared to the large improvement in their self-confidence after surgery. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.
Are you a candidate?
Mommy Makeover is a highly individualized procedure, and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfil someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. If you are finished with childbearing, if you are physically healthy and at a stable weight, if you have realistic expectations and if you are bothered by appearance of your stomach, Mommy Makeover surgery may be right for you.
Who decides for details of your surgery?
You and your doctor will discuss all details of your surgery and decide together. You can directly share your complaints and concerns about your arm’s look with your doctor, and also your doctor will share his objective ideas about your arm lift surgery. Maybe your doctor will offer you liposuction together with arm lift. So this is an interactive process that your happiness and healthiness is a priority.
What about recovery of your surgery?
Following your mommy makeover surgery, gauze or bandages will be applied to your incisions. An elastic bandage or support bra will minimize swelling and support the breasts. A compression garment may also be used to control swelling in the abdomen, waist and buttocks. Healing will continue for several weeks as swelling decreases and the shape of the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia and buttocks improves.
