Mommy Makeovers, Recovery and Scar Management

A mommy makeover is a generic term for a combination of cosmetic surgery techniques aimed at restoring the body’s physical appearance following childbirth.

However, the surgical aspect of the procedure generally involves contouring of the breasts and abdomen with additional elements included per request of the patient.

Because mommy makeovers are designed to target several problem areas, surgeries are more extensive and recovery periods greater. One facet of post-operative recovery that often gets overlooked is the cosmetic appearance of one’s scars.
