Mommy Makeovers 101: Should You Include BODYtite?
While it is nearly impossible to be a postpartum woman and not hear the words “Mommy Makeover”, a few women actually know what this all-encompassing term truly means. Knowing what is meant by a mommy makeover and that there are solutions out there to solving the issue of stretched out breasts, or restoring an abdomen that has been split apart during pregnancy (and yes, this is a thing that happens!) can be life-changing
If you or a woman you love has relinquished their body to carry a life and bring it into this world, and is now struggling with the changes that have taken place as a result, a Mommy Makeover might be helpful to regain not only your pre-baby body, but also your confidence and ability to be comfortable in your own skin.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is the commonly tossed around term for any number of cosmetic procedures, including but not limited to breast surgery like breast reductions, lifts, or augmentation, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction, and BODYtite. Each of these surgeries targets a different area of the body, and depending on you and your situation, a combination of these may be fused to create your own special Mommy Makeover.
Why Should I Add BODYtite to My Mommy Makeover?
BODYtite is the perfect procedure for mamas who would like to remove excess fat and tighten up their skin, but don’t have enough that a tummy tuck is required. BODYtite is a method that contours the body by targeting fat cells with radiofrequency energy. This dissolves the fat, allowing it to be removed via suction, and simultaneously stimulates collagen production. This both reduces stubborn pockets of fat, and restores a certain level of suppleness to your skin.
Liposuction & Tighten
For the right candidate, BODYtite can effectively do away with that ever-defeating pooch that is the enemy of every mom without significant surgery. BODYtite can be administered through small incisions in the skin; a small probe is slipped beneath the surface and radio-frequency waves of energy are transmitted internally and externally. This procedure is minimally invasive, which allows for a shorter recovery time.
BODYtite is a wonderful option to address saggy and wrinkly skin, and shapes, contracts and lifts without the scalpel or large scarring.
What Does Recovery From BODYtite Look Like?
Because BODYtite is a minimally invasive procedure, the recovery time is fairly short. The incision sites may be slightly tender for the first week after your operation, but a full recovery should be experienced within two weeks. Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6 months, and continuing up to 12 months.
Is BODYtite For You?
Why Choose BODYtite Instead of a Tummy Tuck?
If you are still unsure of the difference between an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and BODYtite, it may be helpful to break down what exactly a tummy tuck targets. A tummy tuck is a plastic surgery that tightens the muscles of the abdominal core, and removes excess skin and fat. If you are dealing with a loss of figure due to muscle-related issues such as a hernia, or diastasis recti (muscle separation), this is when a tummy tuck may be the answer.
How Can You Find a Doctor You Trust to Do Your Mommy Makeover?
Adding BODYtite to your list of procedures you are considering including in your Mommy Makeover is just one step in the process, and this may feel overwhelming. It is helpful to do your own research to guide you in creating your vision of the final results you’re hoping for, and scheduling an initial consultation with a cosmetic surgeon will help you nail these goals down. Sharing your vision with your doctor, and he or she will be able to help you decide what procedures are best for you and what you can realistically expect your results to be. Ensure that your doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons; this will give you confidence knowing that your experience will be facilitated by a capable, trained, and licensed professional.
