Pregnancy takes a toll on your body, but a mommy makeover can help restore your youthful figure. Find out what this treatment can do for your self-image at Eskra Plastic Surgery in Goldsboro and Kinston.
What’s a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a series of cosmetic surgeries that make your body look more like it did before children. You choose the procedures based on your goals. During your initial consultation, board-certified plastic surgeon Benjamin Eskra, MD, will help you explore your options for breast and body plastic surgeries, including:
Is Post-Pregnancy Surgery Right for Me?
Consider a mommy makeover if:
- Diet and exercise have not slimmed excess fat around your belly, thighs, hips, or arms
- You’re unhappy with the size, shape, or position of your breasts
Criteria for Success
You’ll be the best candidate for post-pregnancy plastic surgery if:
- You’re done having children
- You can successfully maintain or lose weight
- You have realistic expectations of surgery
Dr. Eskra will help you discuss your goals, options, risks and benefits, and likely outcomes. If you decide to pursue surgery, you’ll have preoperative visits to help you and your surgeon and nurse prepare for treatment.
Recovery time varies depending on the type and number of procedures you choose. You’ll enjoy the best long-term results if you maintain your presurgical weight and do not get pregnant again. Make follow-up appointments with Dr. Eskra in the weeks after treatment to check on your health and ask questions.
