Whether you have developed stubborn fat, loose skin, changes in the breasts, or other cosmetic concerns as a result of your pregnancy, we can help you find an effective solution with the mommy makeover procedure at Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every mommy makeover procedure. This means that the cost of your treatment will depend on variables such as your personal preferences and unique cosmetic goals. As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit us in-office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer plastic surgery financing to help make our treatments more affordable. In addition, we offer CosmetAssure insurance with every cosmetic surgery, so you can go into your treatment with confidence and peace of mind.
What is the Mommy Makeover Procedure Like?
The mommy makeover procedure is performed with general anesthesia in order to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the procedure. Each procedure is designed around a patient's unique needs and cosmetic goals. For this reason, we will be unable to tell you what to expect from your mommy makeover treatment until you visit us for a consultation. However, with all mommy makeover treatments, we strive to use incisions that are as small and discreet as possible to ensure minimal scarring.
What is Recovery Like Following a Mommy Makeover?
Recovery from the mommy makeover procedure varies by patient depending on the specific treatments involved. In general, you can expect bruising and swelling in the treatment areas. Most patients have to take at least a week off of work and other activities in order to heal and allow these effects to subside. You will have to avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, for at least a month after treatment in order to ensure proper recovery, and swelling may persist during this time.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover procedure tightens skin and removes fat from the body to produce long-lasting and even permanent results. However, patients are encouraged to wait to have a mommy makeover procedure until they no longer plan on having additional pregnancies. Pregnancy and other forms of weight gain can affect your results.
