Before and After Photos
A Mommy Makeover incorporates multiple procedures, so the surgical technique used is different for each surgical case. The technique also varies depending on the medical condition and aesthetics of the patient’s body. During your consultation, our talented staff will create a personalized plan for your aesthetic goals and go into detail about the advanced surgical techniques that will be applied. For many, a combination of techniques will create beautifully shaped breasts, reduce the appearance of stretch marks, reshape a more natural and appealing body contour, and eliminate stubborn areas of fat.
During / After Surgery
A Mommy Makeover is considered an invasive surgery and most women will require an overnight stay in the hospital. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia and can range in duration depending on how many procedures are combined. Most women find the recovery to be challenging, but quickly gain hope as they begin to recognize the dramatic difference the surgery has made in their appearance. Full recovery can take between 6-9 months although most patients go back to their normal routine in about 3-4 weeks. Exercise is discouraged for at least 6-8 weeks post-surgery.
It is important to note that scarring is usually a part of this procedure. For this reason, it is important for patients to find a skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to perform this surgery. A seasoned surgeon will ensure that scarring is kept at a minimum and that the results are not only gorgeous, but also long lasting.
