While giving birth marks the beginning of a new life, it often marks the end of a woman’s pre-pregnancy physique. The average woman gains between 25 and 35 pounds during pregnancy, which comes in the form of a stretched abdomen and breast engorgement to prepare for lactation, with swollen hands and feet too. The toll that pregnancy takes on a woman’s body may not be reversed with diet and exercise alone, not to mention that caring for a small child makes it hard to follow a rigorous exercise routine that would help minimize childbirth’s unwelcome side effects. Luckily, the combination procedure known as a mommy makeover is available in Chicago, IL to safely and effectively help mothers regain their confidence and reclaim their pre-pregnancy body.
A Closer Look at a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a combination of two or more surgical procedures that target the areas most affected by pregnancy and giving birth. These procedures can include breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, abdominoplasty, and more. Our surgeon will work with you to develop a plan to help meet your desired results. Since a mommy makeover combines multiple procedures into a single operation, it helps to save time and money.
When is the Right Time?
Every pregnancy is different and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to shedding the effects of childbirth; the ideal timing depends on a mother’s unique situation. However, there are a few guidelines that must be followed and some important things to consider in order to determine the ideal time for a mommy makeover in Chicago, IL. We’ll make sure to go over these with you during your consultation.
One important thing to consider before having surgery is the expected recovery time. Depending on the number of procedures and their severity, recovery can be quite extensive. This recovery time requires plenty of resting, which can be difficult when having a young child. So it’s important to keep this in mind when thinking about the timing of your procedure.
