Everything you need to know about mommy makeover img 1

Social media is flooded with images of many celebrities who look perfectly shaped just within a few months after delivery. This is one of the many top reasons for increased demand in ‘mommy makeover’. As social media has influenced mommy makeovers, similarly the media has also spread many misconceptions about mommy makeovers. Let’s discuss more about mommy makeover in this article.

Understanding What is a Mommy Makeover

Although, mommy makeovers cannot snap back patients to their pre-baby bodies it can definitely make good changes to your overall after giving birth. Doctors would not suggest getting plastic surgery immediately after delivering a baby as your body typically goes through immense stress and pressure and getting surgery after that would not be safe to do so too. It is advised to at least wait for months to do plastic surgery as this is the ideal time for your abdominal tissues, breast tissue, etc to fully recover and heal for you to have a Tummy Tuck Camarillo, breast lift, breast reduction, or a Liposuction Camarillo.

Mommy makeover is a group of makeovers tailored for new moms. This procedure helps to lift, reshape, and tighten abdomen, breasts, hips, and thighs. However, you also need to understand that it is important to have realistic expectations for the results.

If you have now decided to get a mommy makeover, the Pacifica Center for Plastic Surgery is the right choice for you. Few important things you need to follow before you start with your makeover are that, even though the procedure might be fully surgical, it is equally important to eat healthily, exercise regularly, quit smoking or drinking, and have a dependable support system to help during and after surgery.
