Are you interested in getting a Mommy Makeover but also on the fence about whether it’s worth the investment? Our board-certified cosmetic surgeons tell you what you should expect from a Mommy Makeover procedure.
The Mommy Makeover
Will I Have Visible Scars?
There will be some scarring due to a Mommy Makeover being an invasive surgery. However, the scars will heal over time and lose most of their visibility. Also, skilled surgeons will place the scars in areas where they’re unlikely to be seen.
Will I Need to Diet and Exercise?
It depends. Whether you will need to diet and exercise after a Mommy Makeover depends on your goals. If your goal is to achieve fast body contouring results and nothing more, it is unlikely that you will need to diet and exercise post-surgery.
However, if your goal is to jumpstart a healthy lifestyle by getting a Mommy Makeover, then you must implement a nutritious, balanced diet into your day and exercise at least three times a week. Likewise, if your goal is to maintain your Mommy Makeover results then diet and exercise are a must. After all, your muscles will eventually lose their tone and definition, and the remaining fat cells in your problem areas can increase in size, if you do not workout or overeat.
Is a Mommy Makeover Life-threatening?
All invasive surgical procedures carry a degree of risk; the surgeon is cutting into your skin and injecting a cannula needle into your fat. It is possible for blood clots to form, infection to occur, and massive blood loss to happen. However, the overwhelming majority of Mommy Makeovers are performed without incident.
The risk of complications is heightened if you are on blood-thinners, in poor health, have a cardiovascular disorder, or get your surgery performed by an unlicensed surgeon. You should take precautions to verify that the surgeon is board-certified and well-reviewed to reduce the probability of an unfortunate outcome.
