Mommy Makeover Surgery in Miami FL
Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on September 6, 2013
Having children is one of the highlights of a woman’s life. The emotional and physical journey is one of growth and change. The physical effects of having several children, however, can take a toll on a woman’s body leaving behind sagging breasts, a thickened waistline, pockets of fat on the hips and loose skin on the tummy area.
Exercise and diet can certainly do wonders for the body and is always recommended, however, there may be no amount of diet or exercise that can put the body back in the shape it was in pre-pregnancy.
One Stop Solution
The decision to address the post pregnancy body with a post maternity breast and body reshaping is best done after a woman is done with childbearing. The Mommy Makeover typically includes a tummy tuck, breast lift or augmentation and liposuction for the body sculpting aspect.
The significant benefit of grouping these procedures together for the mom is that there is a single recovery period. With any surgery, it is important to implement a support system, to address the babysitting needs with young children and the support for the home. Recuperation time for a tummy tuck can be up to six weeks meaning that a mom can be up and around in a few days but not lifting children and doing the heavy household chores until she has the say so from her surgeon.
The other significant benefit is that your aesthetic goals can be achieved in proportion with each other. The choice of a board certified plastic surgeon should include choosing one that shares your aesthetic values.
The Significance of Board Certification
Choosing a plastic surgeon with board certification ensures that he or she has undergone rigorous training. The requirements of certifying organizations such as the American College of Surgeons are in place to ensure that patients are getting the best care in an ethical and safe environment.
Affiliation with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons ensures that the ASPS member surgeon is trained, experienced and qualified to perform cosmetic surgery. Because so many of the cosmetic procedures today are not covered by insurance unless they are deemed a medical necessity, doctors and dentists alike are lured into performing surgery simply because they can with their medical license.
It is important, as with any procedure, to discuss the background of the surgeon that you are considering, and to make an educated decision.
With the decision underway, the experienced plastic surgeon will evaluate your medical history. He or she may advise you to wait a while so you can take off some weight in a healthy manner.
Eating, exercising and getting proper rest all contribute to a positive recovery. Finding a cosmetic surgery practice, including the surgeon, his staff and the facility that you can trust will serve you towards meeting your aesthetic goals in the healthiest way possible.
