All about a mommy makeover
Dr. Schultz tailors the mommy makeover to fit your needs and goals. He can use a variety of procedures to help you gain the body you seek, such as a breast lift (with or without implants), abdominoplasty, and liposuction. Dr. Schultz will perform the procedures while you are under general anesthesia. Depending on your needs and the procedures used, a mommy makeover can take from 3 – 7 hours to complete. You’ll need to stay at least one night in the hospital or a private hotel with skilled nursing care.
Many women wonder if they can undergo nonsurgical treatments to gain the same results as a mommy makeover surgery. The results of nonsurgical treatments are usually not as effective. Dr. Schultz will go over the various procedures so you can decide which one is ideal for your needs.
Does a mommy makeover cause scarring?
A mommy makeover will effectively remove sagging to leave you with a more toned appearance, but there will be some degree of scarring. Dr. Schultz always strives to make very small incisions in areas that are hidden by a swimsuit or undergarments. Following the mommy makeover procedure, Dr. Schultz and his team will give you instructions on how to care for the incision to minimize scarring and ensure the incisions heal smoothly and flat, so they eventually start to fade.
Can I get pregnant again after a mommy makeover?
As mentioned, you should be finished with childbearing to enjoy the long-lasting results of a mommy makeover. If you should become pregnant after a mommy makeover, your skin will again get stretched and start to sag. You can undergo another mommy makeover surgery to refresh the loose skin and fat pockets.
