You are likely to have heard the buzz that has been circling around the “mommy makeover.” Perhaps a friend gushed about how her mommy makeover helped her get her body back after baby, or you read about Kim Kardashian’s rumored post-baby cosmetic enhancement. While this phase is often tossed around in casual conversation, the concept of a mommy makeover may still be a bit confusing.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Often, the mommy makeover is thought of as a standalone procedure. In reality, a mommy makeover isn’t a just one procedure, but is composed of multiple surgeries combined into a single operation. The term “mommy makeover” encompasses a number of cosmetic techniques designed to rejuvenate a mother’s body after pregnancy, birth, breast feeding, and child-rearing.
As a mother herself, San Antonio’s Dr. Hernandez knows just how busy your day to day is. A mommy makeover offers full body rejuvenation in a one-day operation and thus, one recovery period.
What Procedures Make-Up a Mommy Makeover?
Every woman’s body responds differently to children. Dr. Hernandez is able to tailor your mommy makeover to meet your unique needs. Everything including the specific procedures Dr. Hernandez will perform and in what order, the overall cost, and your ultimate end goal are all taken into consideration. While every mommy makeover is specific to the individual patient, most women find that their breasts and stomach are the most affected by pregnancy. A mommy makeover usually consists of one or more of the following procedures:
- Breast Enhancement: It is quite well known that baby’s quite seemingly suck the life out of their mother’s breasts. Breast augmentation coupled with a breast lift fills-in, shapes, and lifts the otherwise tired breasts.
- Body Contouring: The stomach takes the brunt of the pregnancy. A tummy tuck is performed along with liposuction to tighten the stomach. CoolSculpting® is another mommy favorite for getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat.
- Cosmetic Enhancement: Being a mom can bring on a wrinkle or two—injectable treatments like Botox® and dermal fillers can camouflage fine lines and wrinkles while restoring a youthful volume. Professional skincare, such as a chemical peel, can restore a healthy glow to your skin.
