Mommy Makeover Atlanta
Return to the Body of Your Youth
Having children takes a toll on every mother’s body. Unfortunately, diet and exercise are often not enough to restore a woman’s body to her pre-baby shape and size, leaving many women frustrated at losing the body of their youth.
At Northside Plastic Surgery, we have a solution: A customizable mommy makeover procedure that allows you to combine the right breast rejuvenation and abdominoplasty or liposuction procedures to get back – or enhance – the body you used to have. These procedures have become increasingly popular for moms who want to look their best and feel like themselves again.
During your consultation with Dr. Marc Klein, we will tailor one or a set of procedures specifically for you to treat your needs. Not all mommy makeovers consist of the same procedures, but some of the most common are:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Tummy Tuck
Each woman’s body experiences pregnancy and breast feeding differently, so it is important to discuss your expectations, as well as the procedures on which you’d like to focus.
What to Expect with Your Mommy Makeover
Our mommy makeover procedures are performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. Most mommy makeover procedures are completed in three to four hours, depending on the combination of procedures performed.
As a general rule of thumb, your recovery will follow the course of the most extensive procedure, which, for most mommy makeover patients, is a tummy tuck. However, you’ll experience the same feelings and progression in appearance for every procedure that you have.
You won’t be allowed to lift anything over 10 pounds for the first two weeks. Heavier things, including your children, are on the no-lift list for three to six weeks. Because most mommy makeover patients have a tummy tuck, expect the six-week rule to apply. The good news is that you’ll be able to resume light activities very soon after surgery and won’t have to go more than a day or two without snuggling your little ones. Here is a basic timeline of the type of childcare help you’ll need:
- Around the clock care for you and your children the first two to three days
- Someone else to drive for about a week
- Help with physical housework for two to six weeks, including carrying laundry, groceries, etc.
