Mommy Makeover Pros & Cons
The addition of children to your life can be a whirlwind. You may not have time to regain your pre-baby figure with the added responsibilities of caring for children. Your ability to exercise may be more limited than before. Pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding can also make weight loss more difficult. Between changes in your skin laxity and additional fat deposits, exercise alone may not be enough. A Mommy Makeover can help where exercise cannot. Comprised of a customizable set of surgical procedures, the Mommy Makeover tightens and tones your body to achieve your personal goals. Lets review the Mommy makeover pros and cons.
MOMMY MAKEOVER PROS
A Mommy Makeover is an entirely customizable procedure, tailored precisely to your individual needs. Realistically, you can include almost any procedure in your Mommy Makeover. The most common ones are a breast lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tuck. Lets review theese now.
Pregnancy and subsequent breastfeeding can leave your breasts sagging. A breast lift will elevate your breasts to a more youthful position. Dr. Soberanes will tighten the tissues to lift your breasts higher on your chest and remove any excess skin. A breast lift will reshape your breasts and restore their natural appearance. One of the mommy makeover cons is that you will have to think in recovering for several procedures, like a breast lift or breast augmentation, but trust me, it totally worth it.
Women often lose breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. If you want to do more than just fix the sagging left behind by your pregnancy, a breast augmentation can give you that something extra. Often performed with a breast lift, a breast augmentation with implants or breast augmentation with fat transfer will provide you with a larger cup size. If you’ve always wanted to enhance your appearance, a breast augmentation is a perfect way to do that.
If there are areas of your body with pockets of fat that are resistant to exercise and healthy eating, Dr. Sergio Soberanes will perform liposuction to permanently remove the unwanted fat cells. Using a small cannula allows Dr. Soberanes to be very precise so he can provide you with subtle, natural contours wherever you need them.
The skin of the stomach stretches during pregnancy, and it doesn’t always return back afterward. If you find that you have excess skin that sags around your midsection or loose abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck will help you regain your pre-baby belly. Dr. Soberanes will tighten the underlying muscles and remove any excess sagging skin to help you achieve a more toned and attractive abdomen.

SOME MOMMY MAKEOVER CONS
A Mommy Makeover requires you to be serious about your recovery. The length of your recovery will depend on the number of procedures you have and the extent of correction needed. Following your procedure, the surgical areas will be wrapped, and you may be required to wear a compression garment. You will experience swelling and bruising temporarily, but these will subside after a few weeks. You should take one to two weeks to recover at home, and you should avoid strenuous activities or exercise until Dr. Soberanes clears you (typically around six weeks). This is actually one of the Mommy Makeover Pros, because you will need just one recovery period versus one for each individual surgery.
Due to the nature of the surgical procedures, it will be unlikely that you will be able to care for young children for up to two weeks after your procedure. You will need to make sure that you have someone to help you if you have young children that need to be carried or assisted throughout the day. Your results are dependent on how well your body recovers. Ensuring you engage only in light activities during your recovery will increase your chances of beautiful, long-lasting results.
