Being a mom doesn’t have to mean giving up on being you. More and
more, moms are reclaiming their bodies after babies with the help of Scottsdale
plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Geoghegan and a
mommy makeover. If you are considering making yourself over post-pregnancy, here is what
you can expect.
Mommy Makeovers Overview
A mommy makeover is a catchall term for plastic surgery procedures performed
to restore bodies to their pre-pregnancy states. These procedures are
highly personalized to address the specific concerns of each patient.
Dr. Geoghegan will sit down with you and discuss your areas of concern
and your treatment goals to determine which procedures are most likely
to help you achieve your desired results. For one patient, a mommy makeover
may include a breast lift and body contouring with liposuction, while
another patient may want a tummy tuck and breast augmentation.
Preparation and Procedures
Because no two mommy makeovers are the same, there is no standard preparation
or procedure. Generally, to prepare for cosmetic surgery, patients must
undergo a review of their medical histories and an exam with blood work
to ensure that they are healthy enough for the procedure. Depending on
the plastic surgery procedures included in your makeover, you may have
general anesthesia, may require an overnight hospital stay, and may need
multiple surgeries to achieve your desired results.
Recovery times also are very dependent on the procedures that are part
of your makeover. Dr Jennifer Geoghegan will discuss your recovery time
in detail with you before your procedures, so you can prepare appropriately
for time off of work and additional help at home. Typically, if you combine
multiple procedures into a single surgery, your recovery time may be slightly
longer. Scarring also depends on the type of surgery you choose.
