Pregnancy can bring many unwanted physical changes, especially weight gain and sagging skin. A growing number of new moms are choosing to undergo cosmetic surgery after childbirth.
A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures that restore or improve a woman’s body after pregnancy.
As your weight fluctuates during pregnancy, your skin can become loose and stubborn pockets of fat can persist long after childbirth, despite a regular diet and exercise routine. A mommy makeover is designed to help you reclaim your figure. Consider a mommy makeover if you’re healthy and have a stable weight, are bothered by post-pregnancy changes to your body, and have realistic expectations about cosmetic surgery.
A mommy makeover improves several areas of the body in one operation. Through various surgical techniques, a mommy makeover can restore youthfulness, reduce excess fat, enhance breast volume and perkiness, as well as improve self-confidence and promote physical and emotional wellness.
A mommy makeover may not be for everyone; especially women who desire more children (because the final results may be reversed if you have more children).

Surgery: A mommy makeover combines one or more procedures that are tailored for you. Surgeries can be performed in a single operation or in stages, depending on your desired cosmetic outcome and selected procedures.The most common procedures include:
Recovery: The recovery time for a mommy makeover varies. After surgery, we will provide you with specific aftercare and hygiene instructions.You’ll have to take it easy and rest for the first few days of recovery. Specialized support and compression garments are worn to minimize swelling and encourage proper healing.
Results: The final results of your mommy makeover will become gradually apparent over several weeks to several months. Most patients are able to resume most normal activities, including work, within two weeks of surgery. More strenuous activities may be restricted for several weeks. As with all surgical procedures, a mommy makeover presents a degree of risk and uncertainty. All risks will be reviewed in-depth during your consultation with Dr. Khattab.
