Mommy Makeovers - Dallas, Fort Worth, Southlake
You love your kids, right? We are guessing that you feel less affectionate about the effects of pregnancy on your body… mommy makeovers in Dallas / Fort Worth are popular procedures that address the areas most commonly affected by pregnancy—namely your breasts and tummy. In one procedure, you can restore breast fullness and perkiness, a flatter tummy and a smaller waist.
PREGNANCY AFTER A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
What happens if you get pregnant AFTER a mommy makeover? So, let’s say you decide that you’re finished having kids. You have a mommy makeover to fix what having children did to your body, including a breast augmentation and tummy tuck with 360 Lipo. You’re busy enjoying your new body, then whoops! You are shocked to find out you are pregnant. Here are the things you should know:
- The mommy makeover will not do anything to harm you or baby, if you become pregnant after the procedure.
- Your tummy can still stretch enough to allow the baby to grow; however, you may be left with new tummy bulging after you give birth.
- Most women can still breastfeed after breast implants and the milk is safe for your baby.
- Revisions procedures are possible if necessary. Tummies can be re-tightened and breasts can be lifted or re-lifted.
Despite the fact that you can have children after a mommy makeover, I do not recommend it. You will get and maintain the best result possible having your mommy makeover after you no longer plan to become pregnant. Patients feel a lot better about their bodies in and out of their clothes after breast and body plastic surgery. Studies show plastic surgery can enhance your sex life due to that enhanced confidence. It stands to reason that you should consider a reliable method of birth control after mommy makeover if you are enjoying these benefits, while wanting to avoid any more little ones…
Do scars fade after a breast lift or tummy tuck?
Scars tend to appear pretty red soon after a breast lift or tummy tuck. Fortunately, most mommy makeover scars fade significantly with time. The process can take 1-2 years for maximal fading. Products like silicone scar strips and topical steroids can speed up this process and enhance the appearance of your final scar. Dr. Vennemeyer will recommend the right scar products for you when the time is right. This is usually 2-3 weeks after your procedure when the incision has healed significantly, but the scar is still very new.
