After going through several pregnancies, you may have body changes that make you unhappy. Fortunately, mommy makeovers in Michigan can help women regain their pre-baby bodies. First, schedule an appointment with a surgeon for an evaluation of your body to determine what types of procedures that you want to have. Mommy makeovers include repairing the breasts and abdomen, but they can also include the removal of excess fat from the body. Each woman requires a customized mommy makeover process, but it is possible to select minor to major procedures to repair the damages from pregnancies. After choosing the types of procedures that you want, you can arrange a time for the surgeries, and also, you must think about your recovery process.
Tummy Tuck and Breast Augmentation
While mommy makeovers in Michigan require only one hospitalization for multiple procedures, it will take longer for you to recover. The surgeon can perform liposuction to remove fat from the abdominal zone, and you may also want to have fat removed from the hips, buttocks or thighs at the same time. A surgeon can remove excess skin in addition to tightening the tendons and muscles in your abdomen.
A surgeon can insert the breast implants into the correct positions underneath the natural breast tissue to lift and enlarge the breasts. When you need drastic surgery on the breasts, the surgeon can lift the sagging tissues. If you want a breast reduction, then the surgeon must move the nipples and the areolas so that your breasts will have a normal appearance.
Recovery from a Mommy Makeover
After the surgery, you will recover in your hospital room for a day before going home. You must rest at home for approximately two weeks, so you should arrange to have help from a relative. For the first two weeks, you will take painkillers while you heal, but the total recovery time can take from six to eight weeks. During this time, you cannot perform strenuous activities, and you cannot lift heavy items.
If you have an infant or toddlers, then you should arrange care for your children to avoid harming your body during your recovery.
