If You’re Considering a Mommy Makeover

No matter how much you enjoy pregnancy and love motherhood, it’s natural to miss your pre-pregnancy physique. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take their toll on your body. The number of pregnancies you have, genetics, weight gain, and aging are also factors that may contribute to visible changes in your physique.

Even with diet and exercise, the abdominal muscles and skin often don’t recover to their pre-pregnancy state. If this is your experience, a mommy makeover may be right for you.

Mommy Makeover Overview

A mommy makeover is designed to address your specific concerns and goals and help restore your pre-baby body.

During pregnancy, your skin, tissues, and abdominal muscles stretch to accommodate your growing baby. Breasts also change during breastfeeding as milk production increases. But these changes can linger long after you have your little one.

Even if you find the time to exercise and are eating well, it can be challenging and frustrating when you don’t see results.

Loose skin, pockets of fat, and sagging breasts usually do not spring back with diet and exercise alone.

Following pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women experience changes to their body, such as:

  • Loose skin
  • Sagging or deflated breasts
  • Stretched abdominal muscles
  • Stubborn fat pockets
  • Stretch marks

The extent of the changes varies from person to person. But it’s common to have a combination of the above.

Since pregnancy often affects different areas of the body, restoring the physique can involve more than one procedure. A mommy makeover refers to combined specialized contouring procedures performed together to restore your post-baby physique to your pre-pregnancy body.

Each mommy makeover is custom-tailored to your individual needs. The procedure generally addresses volume loss, excess loose skin, and excess fat pads.

Usually, a mommy makeover includes an abdomen and breast contouring procedure, with additional procedures added as needed.

Procedures commonly performed as part of a mommy makeover include:

The mommy makeover targets the areas you are concerned with. The goal is to restore a more youthful, lifted physique.

It’s not unusual for people to want to look as good as they can. It’s perfectly normal to want to restore your body to its pre-baby look. A procedure, such as a mommy makeover, can improve your body image and your confidence.

Will Health Insurance Cover My Procedure?

Your health insurance generally will not cover a mommy makeover. Since the surgery is considered cosmetic, it will not qualify as a medical procedure. However, financing may be an option. Be sure to discuss what options may be available to you during your consultation.

What to Expect

During your consultation, Dr. Polavarapu will assess your suitability for the procedure. She will examine and measure the areas of your body that you want to improve, such as your breasts and abdomen. 

She will also ask about your medical history to ensure that you are an appropriate candidate and that the procedure can be performed safely. 

During the consultation, she will discuss your surgical goals, options, and costs, as well as the outcome you can expect, how to prepare for a mommy makeover, and the extent of recovery. Dr. Polavarapu will also answer any questions you have during your consultation, so you can enter the procedure with confidence. 

Dr. Polavarapu will aim to ensure that you have all the information you need to make the right decision. Before your procedure, you will also be given detailed aftercare instructions to minimize the risk of complications. 

Knowing what to expect during the recovery period can help you understand how to prepare.

It’s also essential to be aware of the potential for complications. As with any type of cosmetic procedure or surgery, there are a few potential risks that can occur. Selecting a highly experienced and skilled surgeon and following your surgeon’s instructions can decrease your chance of experiencing complications. 

Dr. Polavarapu and her team will do everything possible to reduce the risk of complications. However, it is still important to discuss the risks and benefits of a mommy makeover during your consultation.
