Non-surgical Mommy Makeovers - Part 2
What is Non-surgical Mommy Makeover ?
While the conventional Mommy Makeover is considered major surgery combining two or three operations : a tummy tuck, liposuction and/or breast surgery, non-surgical Mommy Makeover describes a variety of minimally or non-invasive procedures to counteract the physical effects of childbearing and to enhance your appearance after time has left its mark. These procedures are tailored to your cosmetic needs and may consists of laser treatments or injections.
Pregnancy is beautiful but also takes a toll on your body. Many pregnancy related effects such as loose skin, weight gain and stretch marks will not go away no matter how hard we diet and exercise.
What are the benefits of non-surgical Mommy Makeover ?
Busy mothers who do not have the luxury to take time off work avoid surgical procedures as these treatments require a recovery period of 2 to 4 weeks. As most non-surgical Mommy Makeover procedures are non-invasive or minimally invasive in nature, there is no or minimal recovery time needed after treatment. In addition, these non-surgical treatments can be performed in a short interval (mostly less then an hour). No hospitalization is required, the patient can immediately return to work or care for their babies and there are no visible scars, so nobody needs to know that you have any treatment done.
Most importantly, non-surgical Mommy Makeover treatments offer a safe and quick alternative to correct post-pregnancy changes which may be difficult to reverse with diet and exercise alone.
What are the limitations of non-surgical Mommy Makeover ?
As most non-surgical Mommy Makeover procedures are low risk and non- invasive in nature, a series of treatments are usually required to achieve the desired outcome. The results are more subtle and natural looking. Non-surgical Mommy Makeover procedures are not advisable for patients expecting dramatic improvement of their post-pregnancy body with just one trip to the clinic.
Certain cosmetic concerns involving excessive loose skin and deflated breast will also be more effectively treated by surgical correction. Kindly consult your doctor to enquire if you are a good candidate for a non-surgical Mommy Makeover.
