One part of a mommy makeover can start with rejuvenating your eyes. After years of sleepless nights raising children may accelerate aging around your eyes. Family and friends are probably asking you if you are getting enough sleep. One solution is using a Botox treatment to soften the “crow’s feet” or the frown lines. The Botox treatment only takes a few minutes, but the results can last for months. Many mothers have said how Botox shaves years off their appearance.
You can also have surgery on your eyelids if you have bags under their eyes or hooding of the upper eyelids. The scars are minimal and the results are substantial and permanent.
After breastfeeding, many women complain of sagging breasts, asymmetry, enlarged areolas, loss of upper fullness and nipples pointing south. A breast lift can help improve the appearance of your breasts. This technique has been known to dramatically increase fullness in the upper portion of the breast for a long-lasting lift. You may also consider additional treatments such as implants in conjunction.
Implants, or fat grafting are beneficial if you want a larger breast size. You can choose between saline and silicone implants. If you prefer silicone, there is a new generation of cohesive gel implants known as “gummy bear” implants. This is our preferred type of implant due to its natural feel and safety profile.
One of the biggest issues after childbearing is the “postpartum pouch,” a combination of excess skin, fat, stretch marks, and a distorted belly button. It is difficult to get rid of those problems with only exercises. Because of muscle separation, nonsurgical treatments will usually not improve this area. Surgical we can suture the muscle edges back to the midline to give a tight abdomen. A tummy tuck procedure is the most common solution for mothers because it tightens the stomach muscles and removes excess skin and fat.
Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) is a great tool for body sculpting, which can resolve several issues such as fat deposits on the inner and outer thighs, hips and flanks. PAL offers safe and smoother results with less bruising and swelling and reshapes unattractive bulges into complementary curves.
Look at a mommy makeover as a well-deserved reward after all the physical and emotional challenges of motherhood and help restore your body to its former glory.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Many factors can influence your decision, such as when you plan to have more kids, and what parts of your body you want to improve.
Your results from a Mommy Makeover surgery are likely to be affected by a future pregnancy. If you are planning a pregnancy soon, we recommend waiting for a few years until things are settled. The great thing is that a Mommy Makeover surgery will not affect your ability to get pregnant again.
Your recovery time will depend on which specific procedures you decide to have. A good rule is to plan on 14 day recovery. During this time, you should expect to be off your feet and not going to work or doing your normal activities. Over the next few months, you will heal and get better.
To achieve optimal results, you should wait until your body is back to a stable weight near your normal or pre-pregnancy weight. Ideally, you should be at a weight that you have maintained for at least three months during which time you maintained a regular exercise regimen and a healthy diet.
Additionally, you should also wait until your breasts have returned to their normal size. A good rule is to wait for three to six months after you have stopped breastfeeding.
