Why Back-to-School Season Is a Great Time for a Mommy Makeover
The timing of your mommy makeover is key to ensuring long-lasting and beautiful results. Because mommy makeover requires downtime, it is important to schedule your treatment when you have plenty of time to recover afterwards. Many women unhappy with their post-pregnancy bodies opt to enhance their appearance by having a mommy makeover during the back-to-school season. Portland plastic surgeon Dr. Ronald DeMars explains why in this blog post.
Recover While the Kids are Away
The initial recovery period for mommy makeover can take anywhere between one and two weeks, depending on each patient’s personal healing progress. Bruising, swelling and discomfort are common after mommy makeover. For this reason, vigorous activities including exercising, bending and lifting your arms higher than your shoulder height, will be off-limits during your initial recovery.
It is imperative that you get plenty of rest while your body heals from surgery. And with the kids back in school for the fall season, you will have the peace and quiet you need to sleep and relax during the day. Keep in mind that you will most likely need to enlist the help of your spouse or loved one to help with household chores and after-school duties, such as picking up the kids from school and making dinner.
Look and Feel Your Best in Time for the Holidays
It may take several weeks (or even months) for your mommy makeover results to become fully visible. It is important to keep this in mind if you wish to show off your results during the holiday season. If you have a mommy makeover now, you will be fully recovered and back to feeling confident just in time for the holidays.
Your Mommy Makeover Options
No two mommy makeovers are alike. Dr. DeMars will tailor your treatment to meet your specific concerns and goals. Your mommy makeover may include two or more of the following procedures:
- Breast lift to remove excess, saggy skin for perkier and younger-looking breasts
- Breast augmentation to restore fullness and shape to deflated breasts
- Tummy tuck to remove flabby skin on the abdomen and repair weakened or stretched out abdominal muscles
- Liposuction to remove unwanted pockets of fat in the abdomen, back, buttocks and thighs
