How the Mommy Makeover Procedure Works

First, excess fat is removed from the abdomen. The amount will vary from patient to patient, of course, but to get rid of stubborn abdominal fat, our surgeons begin by flattening and contouring the abdominal region.

Excess sagging skin around the midsection (a common side effect of childbirth and fat loss) is then removed. Smoothing and tightening the skin is a crucial part of achieving a sculpted, toned and natural look. This combination of microlaser fat removal andAbEX™Skin tightening helps mothers achieve their post-pregnancy body goals.

Bringing new life into the world is a joyous achievement. However, this triumph can be accompanied by physical and mental tensions. It can take a lot out of a person's body, leave it changed, and create feelings of self-esteem and low self-esteem. Sono Bello's Mommy Makeover is a minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to help patients feel beautiful as they embark on the trials and adventures of parenthood.

Frequently asked questions about liposuction and pregnancy

Many patients are curious about the effects of Sono Bello procedures on their bodies in relation to pregnancy. It's a reasonable thing to worry about, and we hope the answers help allay any concerns.

Is liposuction possible during pregnancy?

The good news for parents-to-be and aspiring parents is that Sono Bello liposuction procedures do not adversely affect future pregnancies and pregnancy will not ruin the results of liposuction.

However, due to the nature of liposuction procedures and procedures such as AbEX, which involve the removal of skin, it is not recommended to undergo the procedure if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant in the near future. At the very least, any positive results from a tummy tuck or liposuction will be reversed and lost due to the natural effects of pregnancy on the skin and muscles.

Does liposuction affect the ability to conceive in the future?

NO. Sono Bello liposuction procedures permanently remove fat cells, but do not tighten or constrict muscle tissue in the same way as a traditional tummy tuck. The only changes to the patient's body are the removal of stubborn fat and the smoothing of sagging skin. Otherwise, the body's natural structures remain intact and unimpeded, allowing for a healthy pregnancy in the future if the patient so desires.

How soon after delivery can liposuction be performed?

Once your doctor approves it, you're healthy. Allowing the body to recover from childbirth before undergoing surgery is probably a wise decision, but not strictly necessary. Again, due to the minimally invasive nature of Sono Bello surgeries, the Mommy Makeover can be performed once the mother is comfortable and ready to receive it.

What is recovery like after a mommy makeover?

New moms are busy and understandably can't afford to be taken off duty for a long recovery. Fortunately, the process of recovery, healing, and rehabilitation after a Mommy Makeover is relatively quick and easy. As long as the patient follows the prescribed regimen and routine after surgery, she can return to her normal life within days of the procedure.

It is difficult to outline a "normal" recovery process after a Sono Bello Mommy Makeover, as the makeover itself will vary depending on the procedures involved in the surgery and the general health and healing process of each patient. However, here are some basic guidelines for the recovery process that apply to all patients:

  1. 1. Immediately after the operation: Patients receive instructions on how to manage mild pain and swelling resulting from surgery. Compression garments are also provided to minimize swelling and promote healing.
  2. 2. First week after surgery: During the first week, patients should rest as much as possible (not easy for new mothers, but important) and avoid excessively strenuous activities such as heavy lifting or more vigorous physical activity than usual. You should plan to take time off work if necessary and help someone with childcare.
  3. 3. Two to four weeks after the operation: Patients can usually return to their normal lives at this point. However, you should still avoid strenuous exercise that could aggravate areas that are just finishing healing.
  4. 4. Four to six weeks after surgery: Patients can gradually increase their activity level, including light exercise, but still need to take care of their body.
  5. 5. Six weeks and more: Patients can usually resume all normal activities, including vigorous exercise and weight lifting.

It is important to carefully follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions, including taking all prescribed medications, wearing compression garments, and attending all follow-up appointments. Patients should also maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating a good diet, staying hydrated, and avoiding smoking and alcohol, as these can interfere with the healing process.

For any patient looking to regain her fitness and return to her pre-delivery body, a Sono Bello Mommy Makeover could be the ideal solution. The best way to be sure:Arrange a free consultation for the patientto better understand the options and procedures that can help almost anyone get the body they want.
