Mommy Makeover in Costa Rica

The Ultimate Guide to Mommy Makeover in Costa Rica

Women with a desire to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies can benefit from having a mommy makeover in Costa Rica.

Even diet and exercise is often not enough to help women get back their bodies after childbirth. A mommy makeover is designed to help women tone and contour those stubborn bulges that often result from pregnancy and childbirth while also increasing their self-confidence.

With each pregnancy, a woman often gains a minimum of 25 pounds. Not all of that weight is lost following the birth of the baby. Excess weight can settle in areas such as the hips, breasts, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and lower back. Even when a woman loses the baby weight, excess fat often remains. Women may also suffer from stretch marks and sagging breasts following childbirth.

Mommy makeover procedures typically involve multiple procedures, including liposuction, butt lift, breast lift, and/or tummy tuck. The procedures included in a mommy makeover will typically vary based on the individual needs of the patient. Most women wait to have a mommy makeover performed until they are finished with childbearing, as the results of a mommy makeover may be lost with a subsequent pregnancy.

Why Get a Mommy Makeover in Costa Rica

Having a mommy makeover in Costa Rica can be a great way to gain back your self-confidence while also enjoying a well-earned vacation or even a second honeymoon. Costa Rica is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, offering everything from pristine beaches to rainforest tours.

How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Take and What Is the Recovery Like?

When planning to have a mommy makeover performed, you should be aware that the amount of time required will depend on the number and type of procedures to be performed. Depending on your needs, it may be necessary for procedures to be performed at different times to prevent the risk of complications.

Some women may request liposuction to address stubborn bulges that remain following pregnancy and childbirth. Other women may wish to have a breast lift or even implants to improve the look of their breasts after pregnancy and nursing. In some cases, a woman may require a breast reduction. Among the most common requests as part of a mommy makeover include abdominoplasty to tighten the abdominal muscles while removing excess skin and fat.

Recovery time from a mommy makeover procedure is also highly individual based on the procedures to be performed. You may be required to stay in the clinic for several days following your procedure. In many cases, drain tubes will be inserted for the first day or two following a mommy makeover to assist in reducing swelling. Pain medication may be provided to help ease any discomfort you experience. Your doctor may also advise you to wear a compression garment or support bra for several days or weeks after your procedure to ensure optimal results. You may also be requested to limit your physical activities following your procedure for several days. The number and type of procedures performed will dictate how long you will need to wait before returning to work.
