A mommy makeover can help women reverse the effects of pregnancy to restore a youthful appearance. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates, we specialize in several surgical techniques to provide comprehensive mommy makeovers to women living in Fairfax, Washington DC, Arlington and Annandale, VA, and the greater DMV region.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a comprehensive body sculpting treatment that is designed to reverse the effects that pregnancy and childbirth has on the body. After going through pregnancy, many women experience changes in their breasts, sagging skin, and stubborn body fat. A mommy makeover is comprised of multiple surgical techniques in order to address all of these concerns in a single procedure. Some procedures commonly performed during a mommy makeover may include:
Each mommy makeover procedure is tailored to the treatment goals of the patient, so only the desired treatments will be included.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The cost of your mommy makeover procedure at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates will depend on a number of factors, including the treatments that are involved in your procedure. During your initial consultation, we will review your treatment goals in order to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your personal needs. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your procedure. In an effort to keep our treatments accessible, we are proud to accept CareCredit® financing in addition to traditional payment methods.
How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
Mommy makeovers are performed using anesthesia to ensure patient safety and comfort. The exact treatment will depend on the procedures included in your mommy makeover. Since the mommy makeover typically includes several surgical procedures, it can be a lengthy surgery. With all surgical procedures, Dr. Mirali makes every effort to make incisions as small and as discreet as possible. Given his expertise in cosmetic surgery, you can trust that your results will look as natural as possible while fulfilling your cosmetic goals.
What is the Recovery Like After a Mommy Makeover?
The recovery after a mommy makeover will vary depending on the extent of surgery performed. However, full recovery can take a few months due to the extensive surgery involved in a mommy makeover. Patients may have to take up to a month off of work and other activities, and will experience mild swelling and bruising for several weeks afterwards. During your consultation, Dr. Mirali will provide you with specific recovery instructions based on your personal treatment plan.
Are the Results from a Mommy Makeover Permanent?
A mommy makeover can produce long-lasting, even permanent results. However, future pregnancies or changes in weight can impact the results you have achieved through your mommy makeover. For this reason, we recommend that patients do not have a mommy makeover unless they are not planning on becoming pregnant again. We also encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits to ensure that their results last as long as possible.
