A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that are performed to get mothers their pre-baby bodies back. It is a fantastic procedure for those women who have undergone massive weight loss. Following pregnancy and weight loss, a woman’s body is often left with stretch marks on the abdomen. Additionally, the skin may not fully contract to its original position, leaving patients with loose, sagging skin.
Would I benefit from a Mommy Makeover?
Children are a gift to this world, but not your body! It is possible to restore your body even after child birth. You may benefit from a mommy makeover operation if you have excess abdominal skin and fat along with loose muscles in the abdominal wall resulting in an abdomen that bulges out. This is commonly seen after having children or losing a significant amount of weight. The breasts also may give off a sagging appearance postpartum and after weight loss. Liposuction is also available for areas of excess fat in the flanks (the lateral region located between the hip and axilla).
What are the details of Mommy Makeover Surgery?
To dive deeper into each individual surgery, we invite you to explore the links to tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast lift (mastopexy), breast enhancement (breast augmentation), and liposuction for an in depth understanding on each procedure and outcome.
The mommy makeover operation usually takes place in an outpatient surgery center. However, depending on how much surgery is performed, the operation may need to be done in a hospital and an overnight stay may be required for additional care. This decision is made by the surgeon. Your safety is their number one priority. The procedure normally takes about 3-5 hours, and your doctor will give you an estimate of procedure length during your consultation. The length of time corresponds with how much is being done.
