Recovering from Mommy Makeover Surgery By Gregory Mesna on February 23, 2015

A woman framing her abdominal region with her hands after mommy makeover surgeryThere was a time when becoming a mother meant that a woman had to sacrifice her figure and accept that her body would never again have the feminine, shapely contours that defined her youth. Fortunately, modern plastic surgery has given women an alternative to graceful acceptance of their post-pregnancy figures in the form of the mommy makeover. Rather than being a single procedure with set parameters, each mommy makeover is a customized treatment plan comprising any number of procedures that, in combination, will allow a woman to regain her pre-pregnancy contours. In fact, in many cases, women emerge from their mommy makeovers looking even better than they did before they became mothers.

Dr. Gregory T. Mesna is one of the nation’s most renowned plastic surgeons, with an eye for aesthetics and finely honed surgical skills that are rare even among elite plastic surgery professionals. He has helped many mothers achieve the figures of their dreams through innovative mommy makeover treatment plans, and he would welcome the opportunity to do the same for you. However, he also wants you to understand that your mommy makeover plan will be an intensive process with a significant recovery period. During your consultation at his office in Minneapolis, mommy makeover recovery will be discussed in detail. By knowing exactly what your plastic surgery will entail, you will be able to make the most confident decisions possible regarding your treatment.

What will your mommy makeover plan include, and what will your recovery be like afterward? The only way to know for certain is to meet with Dr. Mesna for a one-on-one consultation at his office at your soonest convenience.

The Typical Mommy Makeover

The typical mommy makeover does not exist. This is because, just as no two women are exactly alike, no two mommy makeover plans are exactly alike. Nevertheless, there are certain procedures that are commonly included in mommy makeover plans, such as:

  • Breast lift, sometimes with breast implants to increase the size as well as the profile of sagging breasts.
  • Tummy tuck, to eliminate stubborn deposits of fat and excess, hanging skin from around the abdomen.
  • Liposuction, to remove pockets of fat from problem areas such as the thighs, the abdomen, and the buttocks.
  • Injectable treatments to rejuvenate the facial skin without the need for surgery.
  • Blepharoplasty to enliven the eye area.
  • Arm lift, to eliminate excess fat and skin from sagging upper arms.

These are just a few of the procedures that may be integrated into a mommy makeover plan. Each procedure can be customized to produce results as subtle or as dramatic as the patient wishes.

Recovering from Mommy Makeover Surgery

Because mommy makeover plans vary from patient to patient, so do recovery timelines. Each procedure that is included in a mommy makeover plan has its own recovery process; a patient who undergoes multiple procedures over several months will obviously have a far different recovery timeline than a patient who undergoes only a couple of procedures at one time. It is virtually impossible to forecast a recovery timeline for a mommy makeover without first meeting with a patient and discussing her unique needs and goals.
