BlogFall Treats for Mom’s Mommy Makeover

Motherhood is one of the many jewels on a woman’s crown, but the effects of pregnancy and childbirth, while a badge of honor, can also do a real number on your body. Where once was a trim belly now sits a stubborn paunch that no amount of diet or exercise will help. Your breasts may have lost their shapely contours, and your hips and thighs look nothing like they did before. The good news is that choosing to undergo a Mommy Makeover in New Jersey can restore the body you once had, even improving upon the original.

If you’re considering a Mommy Makeover, the fall season offers the most practical and convenient time to have the procedure done. Dr. Bhupesh Vasisht of South Shore Plastic Surgery is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in performing Mommy Makeovers. Keep reading to see why fall is the opportune time to schedule your mommy makeover procedure.

The Mommy Makeover Effect

While pregnancy and childbirth can be an amazing time in a woman’s life, they nonetheless take a tremendous toll on the body. Even after it’s over and done, changes in your body’s physical makeup remain, including added fatty tissue and sagging breasts. Fortunately, you don’t have to just settle for the way things are – it’s time to regain your confidence.

A Mommy Makeover can help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body. You are able to pick and choose between several plastic surgeries that specifically target the areas of your body most impacted by pregnancy and childbirth. In effect, a Mommy Makeover combines several procedures into one, which means you only have to go through the recovery process once. The choice of treatments is up to you, but the most popular options include:

  • Breast lift, with or without augmentation
  • Liposuction to remove excess fat along the stomach, hips or thighs
  • Tummy tuck to tighten up loose skin along the abdomen

Why Fall Is the Perfect Opportunity For a Mommy Makeover

Cooler Temperatures Make for a More Comfortable Recovery Time

The  cosmetic procedures that comprise a Mommy Makeover involve surgeries that require a recovery period. In almost all cases, you’ll need to wear bandages and compression garments to ease the swelling and promote healing. Being as comfortable as possible makes recovery that much easier to go through. By far, cooler temperatures are more conducive to a comfortable recovery period, especially if you’re sensitive to heat.

Privacy

It’s only natural to want a certain degree of privacy before, during and after a cosmetic procedure. It can be hard to keep your business secret during the warm months when shorts and tank tops are in. The fall months offer the perfect camouflage as far as wardrobe choices go. Sweaters, leggings and scarves can easily conceal any post-operative sutures or bandages. By the time the warmer months roll around, you’ll look great and no one will be the wiser.

You Can Still Take Part In Warm-Weather Activities

Summertime heat leaves no room for covering up if you like to stay active during this time of year. Summer is a prime time for playing outside with the kids, working outside and letting loose at barbecue parties. Having to stay cooped up inside while everybody’s outside enjoying warm, sunny days can be discouraging, to say the least. By putting off your Mommy Makeover until the cooler months, you don’t have to miss out on summertime fun.

Less Sun Exposure

Whether you decide on a tummy tuck, breast augmentation or any one of the other procedures, proper healing at the incision sites is crucial to prevent noticeable scarring. Any form of sun or ultraviolet light exposure will darken healing skin and increase your risk of scarring. The fall season offers reduced sun exposure, which is perfect when recovering from a Mommy Makeover. Also, the added benefit of being able to wear pants, long sleeves and jackets provides added protection from the sun when you are out and about.

Childcare Needs

After your New Jersey Mommy Makeover procedure, at least a week of bed rest and limited activity for the following several weeks will be required. This means you’ll need help taking care of the kids. During the fall and winter months, school helps to keep the kids occupied, which cuts down on the amount of extra childcare you’ll need during recovery.

More Time to Relax

Rest and relaxation are must-haves during a Mommy Makeover recovery period. The body needs time to heal, and stress and activity only work to hamper the healing process. The cooler months of autumn naturally slow things down as everyone settles in to prepare for the holiday season. These conditions provide the type of downtime needed to ensure a healthy recovery that leaves your body looking its best.

Being at Your Best in Time for the Holidays

During your Mommy Makeover recovery period, your body will not only be healing but also adjusting to the change. Some procedures, such as tummy tucks and breast augmentations may require muscles to be repositioned in order to create smooth, sculpted curves and to better support the treated areas. Depending on how quickly your body heals, it can take several weeks or months before you see and feel the full effects of a Mommy Makeover. If you schedule the procedure early on in the fall season, you’ll be in top form by the time the holidays roll around.

Looking Good for the Upcoming Spring and Summer Seasons

Looking good for the spring and summer seasons is one of the fun benefits that getting a Mommy Makeover offers. The added confidence in having a trim and fit body opens up a whole new world of clothing choices. Having the procedure done in the fall allows you ample time to put together a wardrobe that flaunts your new figure, not to mention the new swimwear choices you’ll have to work with. A Mommy Makeover not only gives you back your pre-pregnancy shape but also a whole new look to enjoy.
