A Complete Guide to Mommy Makeovers
The famed Mommy Makeover. It’s definitely growing in popularity, but what exactly does this comprehensive procedure entail? In a nutshell, it’s a solution geared at moms who are looking to restore their more youthful post pregnancy and childbirth bodies. After all, diet and exercise can only help so much, and do not help with skin laxity, stretch marks, breast volume loss and droopiness, and muscle tummy weakness. Most often characterized by a combination of liposuction, tummy tightening, and breast augmentation procedures, this special package treatment is aimed at doing away with stubborn excess fat, lifting the breasts, and toning and tightening the skin. When you book a Mommy Makeover at SpaMedica in Toronto, you can expect a generous wealth of expertise, attention to detail, and an all-around excellent outcome.
The Mommy Makeover procedure
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of surgical and nonsurgical treatments that ultimately lead to the restoration and rejuvenation of a woman’s figure. If you want to achieve a significant improvement in your shape and form after having children and breastfeeding, you may be a prime candidate. Under the rubric of a Mommy Makeover, a range of procedures can address the breast, tummy and any other areas with unwanted fat and/or skin.
Surgical treatments may include any of the following: a breast augmentation (most patients opt for safe, smooth shell silicone implants), a breast lift, a tummy tuck or mini tummy tuck, SmartLipo (laser-assisted liposuction), and BodyTite (radiofrequency-assisted liposuction). The nonsurgical components of a Mommy Makeover can include: laser hair removal, stretch mark reduction, and nonsurgical liposuction treatments such as UltraShape, BodyFx, Zeltiq, or Zerona. Depending on your particular case, nonsurgical and/or surgical cellulite reduction treatments may also be performed. Rest assured, once all is said and done, you’re sure to feel like your optimal self again, and those before and after photos will simply amaze you! Most Mommy Makeovers last 3-4 hours.
In most cases, patients require approximately 1-3 weeks of recovery time, depending on your particular combination of procedures. However, the necessary recovery time following a Mommy Makeover does not mean you will need to be immobile! We believe in early ambulation and movement, so patients at SpaMedica in Toronto are generally able to move around even on the first day post-op. Additionally, most patients are kept overnight for observation as well, to get a bit of extra help mobilizing within those first 24 hours.
The cost of your Mommy Makeover will depend upon the combination of procedures and techniques you opt to undergo. However, a combined breast augmentation and abdominoplasty, along with multiple-site liposuction treatments and cellulite reduction will generally start at $24,000. To help defray this cost, SpaMedica in Toronto offers convenient patient financing to help spread this cost out over monthly payments, so you can invest in yourself without burdening your budget.
