Surgical vs. Non-surgical Mommy Makeovers–
Pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood can be the most transformative experiences of a woman’s life. Unfortunately it can also “transform” her body – and not in a good way. While being a mom is absolutely worth the toll it takes on your body, it can leave a woman frustrated or insecure in her post-baby body.
The good news is that a “mommy makeover” can help fix those unwanted changes in the body, with a combination of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. At our Detroit Area surgical practice and Med Spa, Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of women get their body, their confidence, and their groove back with a mommy makeover.
Surgical Mommy Makeovers
A traditional mommy makeover involves multiple surgical procedures performed simultaneously. Surgical mommy makeover procedures can include any combination of: tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, and even an arm lift or facelift.
Obviously surgical procedures result in the most dramatic physical improvements! For women who have the time and the resources to undergo a mommy makeover, the transformation can be absolutely stunning. In fact, in many cases, Dr. Ali’s mommy makeover patients report that their bodies even look better than they did before they had children!
Nonsurgical Mommy Makeovers
Procedures such as breast lifts and tummy tucks have improved vastly in the last decade – and the associated recovery time as also decreased dramatically. Still, with any surgery, there is still recovery time.
Because of the extensive recovery time needed for mommy makeover surgery, some women opt to wait to undergo surgery. Recovery can take up to two weeks of rest away from work and normal child rearing activities. And heavy lifting – such as carrying children or lifting groceries – should be avoided for at least six weeks after surgery. Additionally, there is no driving while you are still taking pain medications.
For women who aren’t in a position for this amount of time off, there is still help in the form of a nonsurgical mini mommy makeover.
CoolSculpting can get rid of stubborn abdominal fat (as well as love handles and chin, back arm & thigh fat) with no surgery and no downtime!
Additionally, our ThermiSmooth radio-frequency treatments can tighten abdominal skin and get rid of cellulite on the body – by heating the skin to stimulate natural production of collagen. It is not a substitute for a tummy tuck, but when combined with CoolSculpting it can definitely improve that post pregnancy tummy!
And, you can also refresh your appearance – looking younger and more rested – with a variety of facial peels, laser treatments and even Botox or dermal fillers.
