A mommy makeover is really just a term that refers to any procedure or combinations of surgeries that are used to repair the damage or unwanted changes that can occur in a woman’s body after a pregnancy and will not improve through things like diet and exercise. These procedures usually deal with smaller or sagging breasts and include breast augmentation, breast lifts or in some cases both at the same time. They also deal with the stretched out muscles of the abdomen and the excess skin of the tummy that can be left after a pregnancy.
These procedures include a lipoabdominoplasty (a combination of liposuction and removal of the excess skin), a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty (removal of the excess skin and repair of the muscles), and a mini tummy tuck in which the extra skin of the lower abdomen is removed.
The recovery is usually just 24 hours. Most patients find that the breast surgery does not hold them back at all with the 24 Hour Recovery Breast Augmentation protocol. The tummy tuck, using a no drain surgical technique, can also be a 24 Hour Recovery NO Drain Tummy Tuck.
This is all possible with new post surgical techniques that are faciliated by newer drugs and by using motion and anti-inflammatories after surgery similar to what they use in sports medicine.
