Motherhood is a wonderful thing, but for many women, the changes pregnancy and breastfeeding cause are not such a welcome addition. That’s why premier plastic surgeon Richard Levin, MD, offers Mommy Makeovers, a combination of procedures that help women in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, restore their bodies after pregnancy and breastfeeding. If you’re ready to get back to your pre-pregnancy shape and confidence level, call Lancaster Plastic Surgery or schedule an appointment online today to learn more.
A Mommy Makeover is a package of procedures that help you restore the damage done by pregnancy and childbirth. Just as no two women have the exact same experience of motherhood, each Mommy Makeover is also unique and designed to meet your specific set of needs.
Some of the procedures available through a Mommy Makeover include:
The best thing about a Mommy Makeover is the opportunity to create a customized treatment plan that aligns with your goals.
It’s important to wait until you’re finished adding to your family before seeking a Mommy Makeover. You’ll love the results Dr. Levin delivers, but a subsequent pregnancy can alter them.
You should also give your body time to heal after childbirth before seeking a Mommy Makeover. Let the hormonal shifts of pregnancy and breastfeeding subside before moving forward with cosmetic surgery. If you also want to move closer to your pre-pregnancy weight, you might want to postpone surgery until you’ve achieved your target.
During your consultation, Dr. Levin discusses the procedures that align with your goals and the timeline for scheduling your surgery. That gives you a chance to prepare and also gives your body a chance to stabilize after childbirth and breastfeeding.
Mothers know the demands of the job, and taking time for yourself can be challenging. As you prepare for your Mommy Makeover, be sure to secure help for the days and weeks following your procedure.
Depending on your treatment plan and the type of surgery you’ll have, you can expect some restrictions on strenuous activities for a few weeks. Have help lined up for that time so you can give your body a chance to recover without undue strain. It’s also helpful to let loved ones know what to expect in terms of your recovery process.
