The goal of a Body After Baby is to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy shape. For many women, those little bundles of joy come at a cost, changing their bodies in ways that diet and exercise alone can’t tackle.
The pregnancy itself often leads to stretched skin around your abdomen and enlarged or sagging breasts that may have some trouble bouncing back. Also, the additional weight gain can wreak havoc on your buttocks and hips.
A Mommy Makeover addresses these issues through various procedures that give you a leg up in your efforts to regain your pre-child body.
Because a Mommy Makeover with Dr. Diktaban encompasses different areas of your body, he turns to several procedures, including:
During your initial consultation with Dr. Diktaban, you review the areas you want to tackle, and he makes suggestions as to which procedures would best meet your goals.
The answer depends entirely upon the extent of the procedures Dr. Diktaban performs. In general, a Mommy Makeover tackles your abdomen and breasts, so you can count on several weeks of recovery wearing compression garments. After any surgery, even minimally invasive procedures, you can expect some swelling, and these garments help with that.
During this time, Dr. Diktaban monitors you to ensure that everything goes smoothly, and he gives you the green light to add on activities as you heal, eventually getting you back to your daily routine.
Expect some swelling after your Mommy Makeover, which masks your results, at first. Over the course of several weeks, however, results begin to reveal themselves as the swelling goes down.
You generally see optimal results 6-12 weeks after surgery. At that point, you and your family are beach-ready.
