Almost every year, as Spring and Mother’s Day bloom on our calendar, Orlando Cosmetic Surgery receives questions about the wonderful surgical procedures that create the “Mommy Makeover.”

If you are curious about this topic, then you might want to visit one of our  previous definitive articles on this surgery before reading this one.

There’s no question that having a baby changes a woman’s body.

However just because a woman has given birth does not mean she has lost the desire to look her best.

The “Mommy Makeover” was formerly in a category reserved for movie stars and celebrities.  However, today newer techniques and technology have ignited the popularity of this surgery.

The“Mommy Make-Over” has become accepted and increasingly popular among women of every age and size.

“Mommies” Deserve the Best

At Orlando Cosmetic Surgery, the doctors and professional staff realize many women work hard after births to recapture their pre-baby physique.  They know these new mothers exercise regularly, eat healthy foods and maintain good sleep patterns.

They have healthy life-styles, and yet they can not reclaim the stretched tissue or saggy skin. The 21st century woman understands that there are surgical options which allow her to restore some of the shape and youthfulness of her body.

The “Mommy Makeover” is a single surgical event, but it combines several individual procedures.

The 21st century woman understands that there are options which allow her to restore some of the shape and youthfulness of her body.

1. Mommy Makeover involves a tummy tuck, named abdominoplasty, and a breast lift surgery known as mastopexy.

2. Sometimes it also includes breast augmentation (implants.)

3. Likewise liposuction, a butt lift or arm lifts might be added to the list of surgical procedures, depending on areas of concern. The “Mommy Makeover” is clearly a customized surgery.

4. On the one hand, the patient’s recovery period is longer when several procedures are combined in this way.

On the other hand, the overall effect of having them done simultaneously is simply stunning.  In fact, some women say they look and feel better after their mommy make-over than they looked and felt before their most recent pregnancy!

A Makeover for Body and Spirit

Here at Orlando Cosmetic Surgery, we reassure Moms, both young and old, that they should never feel guilty because they long for their former shape.  This brings up an important point:  Realistic goals must be set by the patient and the cosmetic surgeon.  Good communication between doctor and patient is an essential element of the mommy makeover.  Realities must be understood and well-defined by both the physician and the “mommy.”

Thus, experts emphasize the “importance of evaluating the patient’s psychological status—especially during the emotionally vulnerable first postpartum year.

Likewise, it is important for patients to understand that “These surgeries are designed to contour the body.”  Patients should not consider the Mommy Makeover to be a weight loss procedure.

Orlando Cosmetic Surgery wishes You Happy Mom's DayMost plastic surgeons recommend, “You should be at your goal weight for at least six months and have stopped breast-feeding for 6 months, before a “Mommy Makeover.”

The way we feel about our bodies is often a psychological key to our self-confidence and energy. Thus we have seen the “Mommy Make-Over” as a joyful celebration of motherhood and a rebirth of beauty—inner and outer.

Speaking of joyful celebration, we know our clients, friends and family are planning wonderful times for mothers during the upcoming Mother’s Day Holiday on Sunday, May 8, 2016.   Orlando Cosmetic Surgery hopes you enjoy spending some time with Mom, and making beautiful family memories.
