What is the best way to prepare for a mommy makeover?
It’s important that you undergo a mommy makeover only after you are at or close to your ideal weight. So if you wish to shed some pounds, you should do it before your surgeries. You should have finished breastfeeding and no longer be lactating in order to qualify for a mommy makeover. As with any surgical endeavor, patients should be non-smokers who are mentally and physically healthy and have no significant medical issues to contend with. Their outlook towards surgery should be positive and realistic, based on a private consultation with our team.
What will my scars be like after a mommy makeover?
All surgeries come with incisions, but Dr. Antell practices a meticulously detailed, conservative technique that minimizes your scarring. The incisions are placed in such a way that the scars later become virtually invisible. For instance, the tummy tuck scar is well-hidden by the bikini line, and the breast augmentation scars are covered by the bra lines.
Should I get a mommy makeover if I plan to get pregnant again?
It is generally not recommended to undergo a mommy makeover until after you are finished giving birth, only because pregnancy can stretch, distort, and compromise your aesthetic results. However, there is no physical or medical reason why you couldn’t get pregnant again in the future.
How can I preserve my results after a mommy makeover?
After your mommy makeover, it’s important to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle that includes nutritious foods, exercise, rest, and relaxation. If you do gain a significant amount of weight, it might distort your outcome. For most patients, mommy makeover results are long-lasting and sustainable, improving your physique and your confidence for years to come.
