Surgical vs. Non-surgical: which is better for a “Mommy Makeover”?

Are post-pregnancy body changes getting you down? If they are, it may be time to consider a mommy makeover. But the varied choice of procedures available often has some moms asking – surgical vs nonsurgical – which is better for a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover typically involves procedures designed to rejuvenate sagging, deflated breasts, and firm the abdominal area. These include breast lift/augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction. Mommy makeover procedures are best done when childbearing is complete, and you are at a stable weight.

Here are a few questions to consider about surgical and non-surgical mommy makeover procedures:

1.    What type of transformation do you desire: If your breasts have lost volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding, you a breast augmentation can help. Women who desire only a modest increase in breast size can choose to do fat transfer for breast augmentation, rather than the traditional breast enhancement with silicone implants.Fat transfer involves liposuction of fat from areas you would like to reduce. The fat is then purified and injected into the breasts.

2.    How much time do you have to recover: Minimally invasive procedures usually require a much shorter downtime. If you have areas of stubborn fat in places like the thighs, hips, and abdomen you can undergo laser-assisted liposuction, instead of the traditional liposuction. Laser lipo requires less downtime.

3.    What are the side-effects:Less invasive procedures such as laser assisted lipo do not leave any scars, and the side-effectsare few.
