Welcoming a new member of the family is a very exciting time in one’s life.
It is however no secret that pregnancy and birth carry with them considerable physical change. Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures to help restore you to your pre-mommy body.
Just as every journey of bringing a new person into this world is a unique experience, so too is each body’s recovery process. Some seemingly “bounce back” rapidly, others struggle returning to their pre-pregnancy norm and find it frustrating that previously effective efforts no longer seem to have an impact.
If this latter scenario sounds like you, you are not alone. Vancouver, WA Mommy Makeover specialist, Dr. Michael Workman has helped countless women return to their prepartum stature. Schedule a consultation today and find out if a Mommy Makeover is right for you.
A mommy makeover is an aesthetic and/or surgical procedure that is customized specifically for your needs to address the effects of childbearing and specific issues in your body such as the breasts, buttocks, face, stomach and waist areas.
You can combine different procedures into a mommy makeover such as liposuction and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). These two procedures approach the problem from different angles and complement each other to give you a very satisfactory, slimmed-down result. You can also include a breast lift to restore shape and positioning without adding any volume to your breast size. It can reduce enlarged areolas, all to give your body profile a more uplifting and younger-looking appearance.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, two of the most popular procedures in 2018 were liposuction (258,000) and tummy tuck (130,000). A mommy makeover can include a variety of procedures that can rejuvenate your appearance and minimize issues such as weight loss and stretch marks.

A mommy makeover in Vancouver can be an instrumental part of rejuvenating your body after childbirth. You deserve to look and feel your best and regain some of the form you lost from pregnancy and child delivery. You have many options at your disposal depending on your desire and your specific needs.
If you have recently given birth or looking to lose weight or get rid of issues such as stretch marks or sagging skin, you are a good candidate for a mommy makeover. You should be in good physical health with a stable weight and have no plans to have more children.
At least six months after giving birth and three months after you stopped breastfeeding. You should also be at a stable weight for at least three months. It is a good idea to wait until your breasts have returned to their normal size.
If you do not plan on having children for a few years, you can benefit from a mommy makeover. But if plan to get pregnant within the next couple of years, you may want to wait since you will not get the full benefits of a procedure. A mommy makeover does not affect your ability to have children in the future.
That depends on which procedure you choose as part of your mommy makeover. On average, there is a 10 to 14 day recovery period in which you should expect to be resting and off your feet. It is important that you get plenty of rest and stay hydrated. Medication can be prescribed to deal with discomfort.
Regarding returning to work, it depends on which procedure you undergo and the nature of your work. Your healing process will likely take a few months. Most Vancouver mommy makeover patients need at least two months before resuming all regular activities and regaining full strength.
Having tightness in your abdomen, breasts and other areas is normal while recovering. You may experience tenderness in the treatment areas. If you undergo a breast procedure, you can expect your breasts and abdomen to be swollen for the first few weeks.
You may have gauze or bandages to help with your incisions. To decrease swelling, you can wear a compression garment and a support bra. At night, keep your head and feet elevated.
You will need to avoid any heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for a few weeks. It depends on which procedures you have and your current level of health.
