One of the most rewarding experiences in life is becoming a mother. However, pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body, causing excess fatty tissue, stretch marks, sagging breasts, and abdominal separation. Because of these pregnancy side-effects, many patients in the Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Wellington and West Palm Beach areas turn to a Mommy Makeover to restore their pre-baby figures.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover consists of a combination of several procedures meant to restore a mother’s feminine figure. These procedures can include:
Even with regular diet and exercise, it can be hard to re-gain your pre-pregnancy figure. A Mommy Makeover can help you regain your confidence with a series of personalized procedures.
Good Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Mothers who are in a healthy weight range and are looking to restore their pre-baby bodies are often good candidates. Patients should wait at least 12 months after having their last child before undergoing this procedure. Women who are planning on having more children in the future should postpone their Mommy Makeover. It is also important that candidates be finished breastfeeding before choosing to undergo this surgery. A consultation with Dr. Berman to discuss your Mommy Makeover options can help to determine if this procedure is right for you.
How a Mommy Makeover is Performed
All Mommy Makeover procedures are performed in our accredited ambulatory surgical facility, which is certified by the American Academy of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities. During your mommy makeover procedure, our board-certified anesthesiologist will administer the anesthesia appropriate for the procedure. Dr. Berman will then perform your unique Mommy Makeover procedure designed to meet your individual body goals.
Because no two women’s bodies are the same, each Mommy Makeover is highly individualized, aiming to target each individual’s problem areas. Because of this, surgery will also differ from patient to patient, as will recovery time, based on the procedures performed. For more information, visit our blog page.
