Not long ago, most women had to give up their looks if they wanted to become moms. There are the physical stresses of pregnancy, the sleepless nights and the long days spent shuttling your kids to soccer practice and keeping tabs on their homework.
It only makes sense that with all these changes, the appearance of your body has taken a back seat to caring for your family. But you deserve a little time for yourself, and a mommy makeover in Boca Raton can help you turn back the clock to reveal that younger, slimmer you that may seem like only yesterday.
Dr. Steven Schuster and Dr. Daniel Kovacs are board certified plastic surgeons who are committed to helping you achieve your ideal look. To get your body back on track, request a FREE consultation with either Dr. Schuster or Dr. Kovacs at our office on Clint Moore Road in Boca Raton.
The Basics – Boca Raton Mommy Makeover
Many women are good candidates for this procedure. If you\'re like most moms, you try your best to take care of yourself, eating right and exercising whenever you can fit it in, but there might be a few areas of your body that you\'re just not happy with. Some might tell you that an aggressive workout and diet plan is all you need to get your pre-baby body back, but the reality is that pregnancy can cause changes in the midsection and breasts that no amount of exercise can correct.
Women in their 20s, 30s and 40s most often choose mommy makeovers in Boca Raton, Florida to address their cosmetic concerns. You don\'t have to be a young mother to enjoy the benefits of this procedure. In fact, many older moms who would like to improve their body shape also are interested in facial sculpting procedures to create a younger look and erase some of those signs of stress and aging.
Because they combine multiple surgical procedures, mommy makeovers are often more complicated than a standalone procedure. Your safety is extremely important and you should trust your mommy makeover to a highly trained surgeon. Drs. Schuster and Kovac are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and have been performing surgery for over two decades. Addressing all your cosmetic concerns during a single surgical session means a faster recovery time, and you should be able to start enjoying your results sooner.
Your Procedure, Your New Look
Our surgeons will take the time to carefully tailor your mommy makeover to meet your needs. You can discuss your options in more detail and get a personalized recommendation during your consultation.
- Tummy tucks are the most common part of mommy makeover procedures. Obviously, the stomach area sees the most changes during pregnancy, and for many moms, the abdominal muscles do not shrink back after childbirth, creating a flabby, drooping stomach. This procedure tightens muscle and removes excess skin and fat, with an incision that is generally well-concealed beneath underwear or a bathing suit.
- Another popular choice is breast enhancement surgery or breast lift in Boca Raton. These procedures can create a firmer, more attractive breast shape and contour.
- Liposuction can be used to remove diet-resistant fat deposits in areas such as your hips, thighs and arms.
- Facial cosmetic procedures such as eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)or mini-face lift can take years off your appearance.
The Doctors Answer Your Questions
Even if you feel a bit self-conscious when you first come in, you\'ll probably find your consultation to be comfortable and rewarding. We\'ll take time to get to know you and learn about your lifestyle, and make sure every one of your questions is answered. Here are a few common questions we get about mommy makeovers in Boca Raton.
It seems like there are a lot of procedures to choose from. How do I create the mommy makeover that\'s right for me?
While there are many procedures that can be performed as part of a mommy makeover, not every procedure will be right for you. For instance, one woman\'s mommy makeover may combine a tummy tuck with a breast augmentation in Boca Raton, while another woman may need only liposuction and a facial cosmetic procedure to achieve her improvement goals. We will carefully evaluate your body and recommend the procedures we believe will help you the most.
What\'s the recovery period like after this procedure?
Your recovery period will depend on what procedures are performed as a part of your mommy makeover. Generally, you\'ll need to plan for a few weeks of recovery. You\'ll need help around the house for a few days, so plan on having your partner, loved one or close friend nearby to help out. While you may want to go back to caring for your family right away, you need to take it easy to maximize your results and heal properly. You should be able to return to most activities after about seven to 10 days and add back in vigorous exercise at two to four weeks depending on which procedures are performed. Your final results may not be revealed for several months, as scars lighten and swelling subsides.
Is a mommy makeover performed just to improve the body and breasts?
Absolutely not. Facial sculpting procedures such as eyelid surgery or a face lift can turn back the clock on those sleepless nights and stressful days keeping your family safe, healthy and happy. Also, some moms consider nonsurgical alternatives like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Thermi-Smooth®, Restylane®, Radiesse® or cosmetic laser treatments to complement their better body tone.
