Being a mother is one of life’s biggest blessings. But not the stretch marks, sagging breasts and bulgy abdomen that show up with the baby as well!
It’s no surprise that `Mommy Makeovers’ are becoming increasingly popular these days among women who have completed their family and finally have the time and freedom to take care of themselves.
With a Mommy Makeover – that usually involves breast surgery, tummy tuck and liposuction done in a single session – they are re-inventing their bodies and feeling good about themselves after the heavy physical toll of pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Unfortunately, however, there still are a few myths about Mommy Makeovers out there that are holding some very interested women from benefiting from this 3-part procedure. In this article, we will debunk some of them:
Myth # 1: A Mommy Makeover Means You Have To Do All Three Surgeries
Not true! The impact of childbearing shows up in different ways for different people, and all three procedures may not even be necessary in your particular case. You can decide to do as many as you think you need, and all three are not obligatory.
Myth # 2: Mommy Makeovers Have To Be Done In A Single Session
Again, not true! You can stagger them and schedule to have the procedures done separately, if you want. Your surgeon will customize and come up with the most suitable plan for you.
Myth # 3: There Will Be A Lot Of Scarring
Experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons do an expert job of concealing scars – and they really know what they are doing! Tiny liposuction scars, for example, usually nearly disappear with time. Breast incisions are cleverly concealed under the breast. Tummy tuck incisions are made in the lower abdomen, well out of sight. And so on.
You will know exactly what to expect during the consultation phase with your surgeon, so you shouldn’t be worrying about ugly surprises afterwards.
Myth # 4: Three Procedures At Once Means The Recovery Will Be Three Times More Uncomfortable
Three procedures done together means you will heal from all three at once (usually 4-6 weeks). We know moms are busy people with obligations and responsibilities, and the reason why these makeovers are so popular is that the package approach cuts your recovery time quite significantly.
Your surgeon will advise you on what to expect and how you can minimize any discomfort during the healing process, so you shouldn’t let this fear stop you from exploring the option.
Myth # 5: Mommy Makeovers Only Involve Surgical Procedures
The three main procedures that help women reduce the impact of childbearing from their bodies can include:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reduction
- Tummy Tuck
- Circumferential Abdominoplasty
But there are a variety of other, non-invasive correction treatments you can choose from at your plastic surgeon’s clinic as well. The objective of a Mommy Makeover is to give you a makeover, and your plastic surgeon will suggest the best course of action, taking into account your needs and opinions and what works the very best for you.
