Arizona Mommy Makeover Must-Knows

What It Typically Includes

Mommy makeovers generally include some type of breast surgery as well as a tummy tuck. This procedure came about as a way to help women rejuvenate their bodies after motherhood. It can include any combination of procedures such as liposuction, thigh lift, buttock augmentation, mini-tummy tuck, breast reduction, breast lift, breast augmentation, or a tummy tuck.

Breast Augmentation vs Breast Lift

Breast surgery is a key factor of the mommy makeover. Breast augmentation will add volume to your breasts but it doesn’t address the saggy skin caused by deflation. A breast lift however will restore your nipple to the center of your breast thus giving you a more youthful look.

Tummy Tuck Options

There are two different kinds of tummy tucks. A full tummy tuck and a mini tummy tuck. The mini-tuck addresses loose skin and fat below the navel. The full tummy tuck will address the problem areas of your entire abdomen. Simply, do the mirror test. If you do not have excess skin or fat above the navel then you would be a good candidate for the mini tummy tuck. If you do have excess fat or skin above the navel then you should go for the full tummy tuck.

Recovery Time

You will need 3-4 weeks of recovery time. Planning ahead is really the key to a successful recovery time. Make your meals in advance and freeze them, and make sure you have childcare if you have young children. In order to get the best results, your body needs time to heal.
