A mommy makeover is a familiar term for a personalized set of cosmetic procedures a woman may seek after having gone through pregnancy and childbirth. Mommy makeovers can include cosmetic surgery, non-surgical treatments, or a combination of both. A mommy makeover helps to restore and rejuvenate your appearance, so that you feel more satisfied with you body.
Each mommy makeover is unique, but generally consists of surgery to enhance the breasts, abdomen, and body. Breast rejuvenation may include a breast augmentation and lift, or a breast reduction and lift. A tummy tuck with liposuction may also be included to tighten and tone the abdomen. During your consultation and after discussing your goals, Dr. Howarth will design a treatment plan that includes procedures for your optimal results.
The procedures that will be included in your personal treatment plan are based on your physical presentation and goals. After listening to your concerns and goals, Dr. Ashley Howarth will recommend a mommy makeover procedure set to help you reach your desired outcome.
In order to achieve an ideal result, you should wait to have your mommy makeover until you are at least six months past pregnancy and breastfeeding. You should also be finished building your family, that way your stunning results can be enjoyed for years to come.
Even though cosmetic surgery is common, all surgeries carry some inherent risks. During your initial consultation Dr. Howarth will review and discuss the procedures and any risks or concerns. You are encouraged to ask as many questions as you have.
By following postoperative recommendations and maintaining a healthy lifestyle your results will be long-lasting or even permanent. Dr. Howarth will review specific expectations for your specific mommy makeover procedures during your consultation appointment.
Since a mommy makeover is an individualized surgery, the recovery time that follows will vary based on the procedures you choose to include. Most women plan to take about two weeks away from work to rest and recover at home. Plan on having some help at home initially so that you can focus on your recovery.
Your mommy makeover in Scottsdale will take place at our Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center, adjacent to our office. Depending on the extent of your procedures you will stay overnight at our on-site recovery suite. If your mommy makeover is a shorter surgery, it may be completed on an outpatient basis and you will return home the same day.
Because each mommy makeover plan is uniquely developed based on your individual goals, we cannot tell you how much your surgery will cost until your initial consultation is complete. There are many different cosmetic procedures that can be included in a mommy makeover therefore the cost will vary depending on your chosen treatments. After your initial consultation you will meet with our financial coordinator who can explain all of the mommy makeover costs.
