Which procedures are commonly included in a mommy makeover?
Mommy makeover procedures focus on those areas most impacted by pregnancy and nursing. To address all of your areas of concern, McLean plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside may recommend breast lift and augmentation, liposuction and tummy tuck surgery, Thermiva™, and labiaplasty. The best way to determine which procedures will be of most benefit to you is through a one-on-one consultation at one of our Northern Virginia offices.
When is the best age to have a mommy makeover?
Any mother who wishes to reclaim her body is at a good age for mommy makeover surgery. However, if you plan on having more children, Dr. Gartside may recommend waiting for the full procedure to help ensure the longest lasting results.
Individual procedures, such as Thermiva, can be useful in between pregnancies for some women. Dr. Gartside can discuss these options in greater detail during your initial consultation.
Is there anything I need to do in preparation for a mommy makeover?
Dr. Gartside will provide you with specific instructions during the planning phase of your procedure, but you may need to stop taking certain medications and supplements, refrain from smoking, and make other minor adjustments to help reduce risks and ensure a smooth recovery.
Am I a good mommy makeover candidate?
The best candidates for a mommy makeover are women who are satisfied with the size of their family and desire a look that better accentuates their natural curves. There are some conditions that can interfere with your mommy makeover candidacy which can be discussed in greater detail during your initial consultation.
