It’s Back to School Season: Is Now the Time for Your Mommy Makeover?
Posted October 03, 2023 in Body Surgery
Once the school year begins, you finally have some time to breathe after the fast-paced summer months. The kids are gone all day, and it’s finally time for self-care. Maybe you’ve been thinking you’d like to get some cosmetic surgery before the next beach vacation or swimsuit season, and you’re wondering when might be the best time to plan your procedures.
At New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts, we understand that scheduling multiple cosmetic procedures can be difficult for busy women. That’s why we offer Mommy Makeovers which combine several popular procedures into one surgery.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures performed simultaneously to address the most common “problem areas” after pregnancy or weight loss.
It typically includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast enhancement (a breast lift, breast augmentation, or both); but you can add or subtract treatments to create a customized plan to best deliver your desired results.
The advantage to undergoing more than one procedure at the same time is that while your recovery time might be slightly longer, in the long run, you are minimizing your overall cost and recovery time.
Below, we offer some of the top reasons fall is a great time for a Mommy Makeover.
You Have More Time for Recovery
Undergoing a Mommy Makeover in the fall allows you to rest and heal in peace during school hours. Take advantage of the quiet, and make sure that you have help during the non-school hours.
The first 10 to 14 days after your surgery require you to truly rest, so you will need to arrange rides to school and other activities, as you cannot drive during that time.
Planning ahead for transportation, meals, and additional childcare will also help your recovery go more smoothly.
More Flexible Scheduling Options
Many people tend to schedule their cosmetic procedures early in the year as they think about their upcoming summer and vacation wardrobe, while also waiting for the busy holiday season to pass.
From January on, scheduling consultations and surgery can be more challenging, as many surgeons are extremely busy, so take advantage of the fall months to schedule your Mommy Makeover.
You’re Ready to Look Your Best in Time for the Holidays
Scheduling a Mommy Makeover in the early fall means that the bulk of your recovery will be complete before the holidays.
Depending on your chosen procedures, you will need about six weeks before getting back into your more intense routine; however, you can start to ease back into work and other everyday activities after about two weeks.
By the time late November rolls around, you’ll be ready to get into your holiday best, looking better than ever before.
Cooler Weather Means More Clothes
With cooler temperatures come cozy sweaters, scarves, and pants.
After your Mommy Makeover, you’ll want to be as comfortable as possible while you recover, and soft, flowing fall clothes fit the bill. Not only do they provide comfort, but they also provide coverage. You’ll have some bruising and swelling after your surgery, so wearing loose pants and shirts will work to hide those side effects when you go out in public.
You Spend Less Time in the Sun
While you may still spend time enjoying a sunny autumn day, you’re still more likely to be wearing more clothing than in the summer.
A Mommy Makeover does come with some scarring, and keeping your newly formed incision scars out of the sun is essential. The sun’s rays can cause scars to darken, especially while they’re still new. To help your scars fade over time, you can use scar gel or silicone strips, and once you’re back outside in a swimsuit, make sure you’re applying sunscreen.
