Going through pregnancy is a beautiful process, but it can completely change your body. Once you’re done having children and have recovered from your last pregnancy and childbirth, you may want to consider having a mommy makeover performed by a reputable cosmetic surgeon in your area. This surgery includes a number of procedures that will help bring your body back to that pre-baby look. Including things like a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and liposuction, you can work with a surgeon to target the areas that you want to address. Something you may be wondering is whether or not a Brazilian butt lift is included in a mommy makeover.
Does Mommy Makeover include BBL?
A mommy makeover can include a Brazilian butt lift procedure; however, many surgeons will proceed with caution. Depending on your age, your body type, and the other procedures that you’re utilizing, there may be risks. However, it makes sense to include it since the whole point of a mommy makeover is to bring back some of your pre-pregnancy curves.
Can you get a Mommy Makeover and BBL at the same time? Is it Safe?
A mommy makeover and Brazilian butt lift can be combined into the same procedure, and in some cases, you may actually be decreasing the risks associated with your procedure. The more times you would have to be put under anesthesia to have separate cosmetic procedures performed would increase your risk of complications. Having everything done at once is preferred.
Limitations and Challenges of Combining a Mommy Makeover with a BBL
Something to keep in mind is that you may be extending your recovery time or making your recovery more uncomfortable. If you’re having areas on the front of your body surgically repaired and then your back side is also addressed, you’re going to have a few days of not being able to get very comfortable.
The first two weeks after a BBL requires you to avoid sitting or lying on your back. A tummy tuck is a common procedure that’s part of a mommy makeover, and that requires you to avoid standing straight up. Add in your healing breasts and you’re in a challenging situation. You can talk to your doctor about pain management options if you’re worried about your recovery and how you’re going to sleep/relax.
If you’re working in a field that requires you to be on your feet or moving around a lot during the workday, combining these two procedures can extend the amount of time that you’ll have to be out of work. This isn’t something that everyone can afford if they don’t have the appropriate sick days to utilize. Your recovery time period is going to be about six weeks before you can do any heavy lifting or extensive physical activity.
– Procedure Cost
You’re going to be raising the cost of your procedure with the more parts of the body that are worked on. Adding a BBL to your makeover can increase the price tag by about $6,500 on average, but the cost can up from there. The cost of anesthesia may increase if you have to be under longer to extend your procedure time.
– Length of the Procedure
Cosmetic procedures can only be done one at a time in order to keep you safe and ensure that the work is done to a high standard. A Brazilian butt lift can take anywhere from three to four hours to perform. Tummy tucks average around two hours, breast augmentations last an hour, and a breast lift can take two hours. When you’re having all of this done at once, you’re looking at being under anesthesia for most of the day. There are risks associated with this, and many doctors don’t like to work on their patients for that long if they don’t have to. They’re human as well and can become fatigued.
Why Don’t All Surgeons Perform a Mommy Makeover with a Brazilian Butt Lift?
Surgeons that are considering pairing a BBL with a mommy makeover have to adhere to certain guidelines that are outlined by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. There are rules about how much fat can be removed and different safety protocols that will be in place. This is a scenario that even the most experienced surgeons are hesitant to take on.
Weighing Your Options
There may be some concerns with pairing a BBL with a mommy makeover, but that doesn’t mean you can’t consider it. It can save you some time when you don’t have to come in for an additional procedure and then plan for vacation time/recovery time. As a mom, you’re probably needed by your family as soon as possible. Getting your entire recovery done at once may be ideal.
Your surgeon can help you determine if this is something that your body can handle. The important factor is whether or not this is safe for you, and a reputable Miami surgeon will be honest in regard to whether or not you should have a BBL performed on its own.
