Mommy Makeover Hopkinsville, KY

The emotional and physical effects of pregnancy and childbirth are profound. Motherhood has many rewards and is one of the most fulfilling experiences a woman can have. Pregnancy prepares the body of the mother to nurture the baby as well. It can also leave excess weight, loose skin and breast changes that are not what the mother wants. Additionally, breastfeeding can cause the breasts to expand, then deflate and sag. All of this can cause a lot of emotional turmoil on top of what is probably a very busy life with lots of other changes.

What has changed is the attitude women have about cosmetic surgery. Today women are not afraid to admit that they love their children but wish that their bodies looked more like they did before their first pregnancy. They also know that some of these changes will be permanent, despite exercise and proper diet, unless they get some help. This accounts for the steadily increasing popularity of the “Mommy Makeover” cosmetic surgery procedure.

What will I learn during my consultation with Mitchell Kaye at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Kentucky?

This is the time for the Doctor and the patient to learn about each other, to discuss individual goals and medical history and to formulate a plan. Open communication is the key.

What happens during a Mommy Makeover surgery?

The breasts may be lifted as needed and the volume can be restored with either a saline or silicone implant. If the breasts are too large and sagging from weight, the excess can be reduced as well. Excess fatty deposits are liposuctioned as needed. The loose belly skin is removed along with liposuction of the abdomen and waist to restore the curves of the flanks and tighten the belly.

Depending on the extent of the procedure, the Mommy Makeover process may occur over one or two sessions.

What is recovery like after a Mommy Makeover?

Most women are back to near normal activities at home (but limited from exercise) within 3-5 days. For the first few days, having family or friends to help you is absolutely necessary. Return to work outside the home will depend on the physical demands of the job, but ranges from 10-21 days for the most demanding jobs. Back to exercise in 2-6 weeks depending on the procedure and exercise, this requires specific instructions.
