A Mommy Makeover: Common Questions

Are you a new mommy, and looking for a way to pamper yourself? There are some very good arguments for undergoing a mommy makeover to help you return your body to its pre-pregnancy glory. If you are considering the mommy makeover, you probably have a lot of common questions. Here are the most common questions about a mommy makeover.

Can I Get a Mommy Makeover After My First Child?

You may be appalled at the changes your body has undergone since becoming pregnant and giving birth. But there are excellent reasons for not getting a mommy makeover until after you are done having children. With each pregnancy, your body will undergo additional changes. Many of the procedures commonly done in the mommy makeover would need to be repeated when you have another child. Instead of getting the procedures done right away, it is best to wait until you are sure that you will not need to go through pregnancy again in the future.

Can I Recover From a Mommy Makeover and Keep Up With My Child?

If your youngest child is still an infant or toddler, you may be concerned about being able to keep up with them after the mommy makeover. While there is some recovery involved, you should be able to resume normal activity fairly quickly. Depending on the procedures you have done, you may have bandages for the first one to three days, and sutures for one to three weeks. During the first few days, you may need assistance with your child, but after that you should be able to keep up with them without problems.

When is the Best Time to Get a Mommy Makeover?

You should wait to get a mommy makeover until after you have tried other methods for returning your body to its pre-pregnancy state. For example, you should not undergo liposuction before attempting natural weight loss. You may also want to make sure that you are unhappy with the new size and shape of your breasts before a breast lift or reduction. Waiting several months after your last child is generally recommended.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
