About the Mommy Makeover
Dallas, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon works with women regularly who wish to have their pre-pregnancy shape back. While childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, it usually does change the tightness and shape of certain body parts, leaving one feeling limited on how to make improvements naturally. The most exciting news is that it is achievable to reclaim a youthful, slimmer, tighter figure with the assistance of the mommy makeover surgical procedure performed at Solomon Plastic Surgery in Frisco. This body contouring treatment uses a combination of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to reshape both the upper body (arms and breasts), and lower body (such as the tummy) — basically any body part affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc. can be repaired. Furthermore, nonsurgical remedies can be incorporated to correct surface imperfections, such as skin problems or stretch marks, due to the rapid stretching and fluctuation of the skin, tissue, and underlying muscles during pregnancy.
Ideal candidates for body contouring and mommy makeover are individuals who have undergone pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing, and have tried to get a toned, slimmer appearance through a consistent healthy lifestyle with little result. For many women, surgical intervention is recommended to attain their pre-pregnancy figure. If you are past childbearing and are displeased with the imperfections remaining on your body, such as lifeless, deflated breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, this procedure could help you. The overall goal is to reclaim your pre-pregnancy body so you can get back to life without additional concern about your body.
The mommy makeover procedure is a body contouring surgery, tailored for each woman based on the areas of concern to be reshaped. A variety of procedures can be paired together — the most popular treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. The mommy makeover surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia and taking into account the complexity of the surgical case, it could last within 3 – 7 hours. After surgery, some patients may need to stay in the hospital overnight based on the procedures performed. To create an additional glow, nonsurgical skin procedures such PRP therapy, BOTOX®, and dermal fillers can be used to diminish facial wrinkles and surface issues.
What to Expect
This cosmetic body contouring procedure is categorized as an invasive process and can surgically cover a large portion of the body. Once leaving the hospital, patients will begin to recover at home with the post-operative instructions we supply and rest. Recovering from this surgery is generally a gradual process. Moving around and walking straight will be difficult the first week or so, and a step-by-step, at-home healing protocol will be provided to help the incisions heal effectively. Most patients find the healing process can last around three months. Even while the primary healing phase could take months, the majority of women are able to return to a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Resuming exercise should be held off for around six weeks. Regardless of recovery time, the mommy makeover procedure can be an amazing journey for women, providing them with a renewed self-esteem once again.
