When talking about a “Mommy Makeover”, most people are referring to combination of breast and abdominal surgery. For healthy patients this can be a really nice option to address the 2 most common areas affected by having babies. The surgery is customized for each woman, as some only need volume in the breasts (breast augmentation), while others need breast lifts or breast reductions. The abdominal area also can have very different needs, from mini abdominoplasty, to full abdominoplasty, or even just liposuction. Nipple and areolar issues can be addressed at the same time if needed.
Ideal Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is appropriate for women after they are done giving birth and breastfeeding. Non-smokers with realistic goals are the best candidates for a mommy makeover procedure. Candidates must be in overall good health, since certain pre-existing conditions can affect the safety of the surgery.
Patients who want to get back to their ideal body shape are excellent candidates. Candidates must have sufficient free time to undergo a mommy makeover and the recovery process.
During your mommy makeover visit, you and Dr. White will discuss your aesthetic goals and the potential results of your mommy makeover procedure. Dr. White will perform a physical examination, and photographs may be taken. She will look over your medical records.
Next, the two of you will customize and tailor your mommy makeover, and Dr. White will recommend the best treatment plan for your desired results. You will find out about the potential cost of the procedure, the necessary preparation steps, and the recovery process involved. Finally, a date will be set for the operation.
The mommy makeover procedure will start with administration of general anesthesia. Incisions will be made in the targeted areas. After all changes have been made, the incisions will be closed using sutures, and bandages will be applied to finish the procedure. The duration of the surgery will vary based on the chosen procedures.
After the mommy makeover procedure, drains and elastic garments may be applied. Prescriptions will be given, along with specific instructions to aid the patient during the recovery period. The patient can go home once they have been cleared to leave.
The patient will notice temporary bruising and swelling, as well as fluid buildup. Various physical activities will be prohibited until a few weeks of recovery have passed. The patient will need to return for a follow-up visit with Dr. White so she can assess the results of the procedure and the rate of recovery.
The Cost of a Mommy Makeover
The exact cost of a mommy makeover will depend on the surgical plan. The techniques used, anesthesia fees, and total surgical time can all affect the total price of the procedure.
