Dr. Shermak has helped many Baltimore Mommy Makeover patients. Please read more about what to expect from the procedure below.
What is Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and C-section lead to some unpredictable changes in a woman’s body, particularly in the breasts and abdomen. The breasts may lose volume leading to deflation and sagging. Asymmetries in the breast may also result. Abdominal skin tone, muscle strength, and contour may also be impaired. Mommy Makeover surgery comprises a spectrum of breast and body contouring procedures to reverse the effects of pregnancy. Such procedures include Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Abdominoplasty, Backlift, Thighlift, Fat Grafting and/or Liposuction. Please check out these links. Improvements from Mommy Makeover surgery may even surpass the body you had prior to pregnancy, allowing this mommy to achieve the body she always desired. And as you know, a happy mom is critical to a happy family!
Who is a good candidate for Mommy Makeover?
Good candidates for Mommy Makeover are women in good health who have loss of fullness and shape in the breasts, and loss of abdominal strength and contour from pregnancy and possible C-section surgery. During the initial consultation you will discuss with Dr. Shermak what you would like to improve so she can understand your expectations and determine how to best achieve the desired result. Surgery is customized to your desires and needs.
What is the recovery like for Mommy Makeover?
Surgery tends to be performed as an outpatient. One may experience temporary discomfort, swelling, numbness, and bruising. Patients are up and walking within hours of surgery. Most resume regular activities and return to low impact activity after 1 week. Heavy exercise and lifting are discouraged for a month.
