Childbirth can take a large toll on a woman’s body. After pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, many women find it difficult or impossible to get back to their pre-baby body, which can cause self-esteem or intimacy issues. Unfortunately, there’s only so much that exercise and diet alone can do for you when your abdominal muscles are loose or your breasts have deflated.
A mommy makeover is tailored to each individual patient to help correct issues that exercise and diet alone can’t resolve. To create your personalized mommy makeover plan, please contact Dr. Gregory Brucato today at 203-431-7644 to schedule your complimentary consultation. We welcome patients from across Connecticut, including Ridgefield, Wilton, and Danbury.
Some of the most popular procedures that can be included in a mommy makeover are:
During your consultation, let Dr. Brucato know your goals. He will work with you to create a mommy makeover plan that addresses all of your concerns.
You may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you:
A mommy makeover isn’t a substitute for a healthy lifestyle following childbirth, and you’ll get the best results if you’re already at or near a healthy, stable weight. It’s important to wait at least six months to a year following childbirth to undergo any cosmetic surgery, because it can take that long for your hormones to get back to normal and for you to shed your baby weight.
While a mommy makeover will not negatively impact your ability to have children or breastfeed in the future, we recommend waiting until you’re finished having children. This is because having another child can undo the effects of your surgery and require revision surgery.
Recovery after a mommy makeover will vary depending on which procedures you had. Typically, a tummy tuck requires the longest recovery time, as it is the most extensive and complex procedure.
Most patients find that they can return to work after around a week. You should be sure to have help around the house immediately after your mommy makeover, as you won’t be able to perform household chores or lift your child for the first day or so.
Dr. Brucato will give you detailed post-operative instructions that you should follow closely.
The cost of a mommy makeover will depend on how many procedures you decide to undergo, and the complexity of each. Dr. Brucato will let you know the exact cost after you have decided on a plan during your consultation.
