Three Mommy Makeover Myths
You’re an amazing mom, and you’re already on your way to claiming the “Mommy of the Year Award.” You want to look fabulous when accepting it, right? Now that you’ve brought an adorable genius into the world, it’s time for you to focus on you. It’s time to get back to your pre-baby body. For many new moms, that means a Mommy Makeover.
Pregnancy and Giving Birth Changes the Body
During pregnancy and then through the birthing process, women’s bodies undergo major transformations – both inside and outside the body. It can take a major toll on your body – impacting everything from your hormones – to changing the size of your breasts – to creating “battle scars” on your stomach – stretch marks, and that’s just for starters.
A Mommy Makeover Can Help Restore the Shape of Your Body and Boost Your Self-Confidence
The Postpartum Restoration, also known as the Mommy Makeover, is one of our specialties at the offices of Board-certified plastic surgeon, Adam G. Tattelbaum M.D.,. A Mommy Makeover helps restore the shape and appearance of your body after you’ve given birth. This can be done through a number of plastic surgery procedures mostly targeting the breast and abdomen, including the following:
- Breast Surgery: breast lift, breast augmentation, breast implants, breast reduction
- Abdomen Surgery: mini or full tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction
There are so many questions out there about Mommy Makeovers, which is why we thought we’d set the record straight with three Mommy makeover myths.
1: You Have to Undergo All of the Procedures
This is a myth. Obviously, childbirth mostly impacts women’s breasts and abdomen, and most Mommy Makeovers, including ours, focuses on surgeries involving those two areas. But you do not have to have everything done. It’s not a “bundled” specific set of surgeries. It’s all about you, your desires and goals. We take a personal approach to each cosmetic surgery we perform.
2: The Scars are Not Worth It
While genetics can play a role in how any patient heals Dr. Tattelbaum does his best to hide or minimize the impact of the scars. Stretch marks, for example, are a form of scarring of the skin. If visible stretch marks can be removed and a tummy tuck scar is hidden below a bathing suit or bikini line for most the trade-off is worth it.
3: It Involves Only Surgical Procedures
This is a total myth. Mommy Makeovers are certainly not limited to the abdomen and breast. Many new moms also opt for non-invasive skincare treatments and procedures that can enhance their beauty, such as injectables – if they’re not breastfeeding or once they stop breastfeeding. We also offer some incredible skin care options.
