What is the Mommy Makeover?
Basically, the Mommy Makeover is a series of surgical procedures that are performed in order to reverse the consequences of pregnancy or motherhood. As is well known, most women who have been mothers usually have consequences at both the abdominal and breast level. On many occasions, it is impossible for the woman to be able to correct these consequences by her own means. Usually, they refer to the mammary area, in which there is a process of atrophy, sagging, drooping, etc., which cannot be reversed spontaneously. At the abdominal level, there is often excess skin, especially below the navel, and a significant separation between the rectus abdominis muscles.
Does it have advantages over exercise and diet?
These circumstances mean that no matter how hard a woman tries with diet and exercise, she will not be able to achieve her pre-pregnancy figure again. This treatment is neither better nor worse than diet and exercise, but they are complementary activities. All are undoubtedly synergistic issues.
Is this method suitable for any woman or does it have restrictions?
Although it is a treatment suitable for any woman, fundamentally, they must be young women, healthy from the analytical and clinical point of view, without major underlying diseases, who take care of themselves, who eat well, preferably non-smokers and who exercise. In this way, the best surgical results can be obtained. The restrictions for a Mommy Makeover surgery are the same as for surgical interventions in general.
Is it possible to have more children after a Mommy Makeover?
After a Mommy Makeover it is perfectly possible to have children, although it is not recommended. For this reason, it is important that the patient discusses in the consultation with the specialist if her genetic desire is fulfilled. If she intends to have more children, it is advisable not to undergo surgery, since once an abdominoplasty has been performed, having a pregnancy again will cause the results of the intervention to be lost. Although it is not serious, the patient would have to be reoperated after having children.
