Mommy Makeover Cosmetic Plastic Surgery
Mommy makeovers often include one or more surgical procedures and non-invasive body contouring procedures to help restore a woman''s body to a more youthful, natural shape -- giving Mom back the self-confidence she deserves.
A mommy makeover may include one or more of the following cosmetic plastic surgery procedures:
Non-Invasive Mommy Makeover Treatments
For some mothers, cosmetic surgery may not be an option. Available in Pittsburgh, non-invasive Mommy Makeover treatments are available that can improve the appearance of some common pregnancy related conditions such as stretch marks, mild skin sagging, varicose veins and spider veins, and the accumulation of cellulite.
Non-invasive body contouring treatments include:
- Thermage™ Skin Tightening for the body
- Fraxel® Stretch Mark Reduction
- Spider Vein and Varicose Vein Removal
Available in Columbus, Mommy Makeover treatments include spider vein and varicose vein removal.
Mommy Makeover Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Post-Operative Care
Mommy makeover post-operative care will depend on the type of procedures performed. The post-operative recovery will vary from breast surgery procedures, liposuction, SmartLipo laser liposuction and tummy tuck. No matter which type of surgery is performed, the surgical area will typically be swollen and sore with slight bruising for the first few days and possibly a week or longer. Pain medication and bed rest are prescribed for five to seven days following body-contouring procedures. After which time, patients may feel well enough to resume work and light daily activities.
Compression garments are usually prescribed for body contouring procedures and may need to be worn for two to three weeks following cosmetic plastic surgery to keep bruising and swelling to a minimum. In addition, heavy lifting and exercise should be avoided for up to four weeks.
Most mommy makeover patients are thrilled with the results. However, the healing process will continue for three to six months before the final result is seen.*
