A recent Haute Living article describes how mommy makeovers are a reliable method for helping a woman to enjoy a body closer to the one she had prior to having children. It adds, however, that every mom/prospective patient considering the procedure should understand what it entails. This includes the details of the surgeries, deciding on when to schedule them, understanding the recovery time needed post-procedure, as well as carefully researching which surgeon is the best for the job. Here at BHP, we know that a successful mommy makeover begins by offering patients support and plenty of information so that they can make the best possible decisions for themselves.
For people who may not be certain what it is, a mommy makeover is a collection of procedures that address the less flattering impacts motherhood can have on a woman’s body. While diet and exercise can help to reduce post-pregnancy weight and build healthy muscle, loose and sagging skin as well as certain types of fatty tissue are very often mostly immune to exercise and diet. Procedures in the package typically include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to remove excess tissue and tighten muscles, liposuction to remove fat deposits, as well as breast augmentation and/or breast lift.
The health and beauty medical group says that there are many factors involved with the success of any plastic surgery or group of surgeries. The first and most important detail is the choice of a plastic surgeon. At BHP, our most important offering is our selection of many of Southern California’s most respected physicians.
Our consultants can also help with a great many other tasks beyond coordinating the choice of a physician. These include helping to make whatever arrangements are needed to facilitate procedures, including scheduling a time that will work with the patient’s schedule. In cases where patients may be concerned about finances, BHP consultants can nearly always structure an arrangement that can make most procedures affordable to most patients.
Moving on, beyond the matter of the date of a procedure there is a different kind of scheduling that prospective mommy makeover patients should know. It is best if a mother waits until she is finished having children before having the procedures. As you may have guessed, waiting ensures that the results of the procedure will last and not be affected due to the exigencies of another pregnancy.
