Mothers devote so much time and energy to their children and may neglect their own care and well-being. After giving birth and returning home with your little bundle of joy, not much thought may be given to your own health and appearance. Pregnancy and childbirth often leave women with a body that does not quite resemble their pre-pregnancy body, but the thought of hours of exercising to get the body tone again is not very appealing and often not even possible.
If you’re a young mother who would like to explore options for getting your pre-pregnancy shapely figure back through body contouring, Dallas board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai offers what is called a Mommy Makeover Surgery. Every mommy makeover is unique and designed to counteract the effects of childbearing and enhance your post-pregnancy appearance. A mommy makeover procedure is custom designed to fit your needs and desires; various cosmetic surgery procedures and treatments may be combined.
Procedures Combined for a Mommy Makeover
Mommy makeovers combine surgical procedures to give you the body you had before pregnancy or to give you an even better one. Some of the procedures Dr. Rai might suggest are:
Preparing for Mommy Makeover Surgery
Planning and preparing for your Dallas mommy makeover surgery can make a significant difference in the success of your makeover and recovery. Following Dr. Rai’s orders both pre- and post-surgery is very important. Being in good general health is also crucial to the success of your mommy makeover. If you have medical conditions that may interfere with the process, you must tell Dr. Rai. If something health-related arises after your consultation, please contact the office so this information can be added to your medical records. No matter how excited you are to have your makeover, risking complications due to a health condition or illness can be very dangerous.
If you smoke, you may need to stop at least one month before your surgery, and you cannot smoke during the recovery process. Smoking constricts your blood vessels, which reduces the amount of oxygen that is delivered to your body’s cells. Lack of oxygen-rich blood flow significantly diminishes your body’s ability to heal. Because some medications cause your blood to thin, Dr. Rai will give you a list of medications you must avoid prior to surgery.
If you live in the Dallas-Forth Worth Metroplex area of Texas and dream about having a sleek, tone post-pregnancy figure, Dallas cosmetic surgeon Dr. Vasdev Rai can help. Please contact The Cosmetic Surgical Center to schedule your free cosmetic surgery consultation for a mommy makeover today.
