Here is some basic information on the two primary procedures of the Mommy Makeover.
The Mommy Makeover combines breast surgery with tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift and even labiaplasty, giving Moms a surgical option to return a post-pregnancy body to a more youthful form. A woman’s body goes through a myriad of changes during pregnancy, all genetically driven to support fetal development. The shape-shifting that occurs is different for every mother. So too is the ability to reclaim that pre-baby body contour with an active and healthy lifestyle.
The first step is a private consultation where you will meet one-on-one with the surgeon to talk through your goals and desires, assess your options, understand the recovery process and then set a plan for treatment. Having multiple procedures, if you are healthy and medically cleared, can be an ideal situation for the right patient. You undergo one surgical session which means one session of general anesthesia, and one period of recovery, although it could be a little more challenging as more areas of the body will need a little extra TLC for a few weeks.
Here is some basic information on the two primary procedures of the Mommy Makeover, please find more details on each of the individual procedure pages.
- Breast Surgery - your Mommy Makeover will include breast surgery dictated by the enhancement/restoration you desire and best solution for your body as determined by you and your surgeon.
- You may be a candidate for a breast lift with or without augmentation. You have the option of the type of implant - silicone or saline - and the size. Some patients will benefit from augmentation alone and others may achieve their goals with a reduction.
- Tummy Tuck - a tightening of the abdominal muscles and removal of sagging skin to restore a trimmer mid-section. Some patients will benefit from liposuction to better achieve the desired body contours.
