Who is a candidate for Mommy Makeover?

  • Women who desire improvement in the appearance of their breast and abdomen.
  • Women who have lost volume and shape of their breast.
  • Women who have excess skin, looseness of muscles and stretch marks of their abdomen.
  • Mostly women who have lost the youthfulness and femininity of their chest and abdomen after pregnancy.

Intended results of Mommy Makeover:

  • Improve the general feminine shape of breast and abdomen.
  • Augment, lift or combination of the two to bring back the optimal beast shape.
  • Recontour the shape of the abdomen and get rid of excess skin and stretch marks.
  • Tighten the abdominal wall and fix hernias and muscle separations.

Description of the Mommy Makeover procedure:

  • This is an outpatient procedure done under anesthesia in our accredited surgical center.
  • When appropriate, the breasts are augmented with the latest implants or the most innovative lifts for a more natural and feminine shape. Often a combination of the two is done.
  • Innovative Abdominoplasties — such as the mini, floating, full or extensive designs — are selected and performed for a low cut scar, a sensual belly button and a tight abdomen.
  • Liposuction is often used to create a harmony of shape and a better contour.

Recuperation and healing after Mommy Makeover:

  • Patients go home in garments and are given significant pre-operative teaching for their rapid recovery.
  • Drains and pain pumps are used.
  • All sutures are dissolvable. Significant attention is paid to post-operative treatment of scars for the optimal baseline of a fine scar.
  • Most patients take two weeks off work and refrain from intense exercise for 4 weeks.
  • Final results are more evident after a month.

Other options and information on Mommy Makeover:

  • An additional procedure that may enhance the results of a Mommy Makeover is Liposuction. This can improve the contour of the thighs, flanks and back.
  • Occasionally the amount of excess skin might require a circumferential approach — Lower Body Lift.
  • Occasionally breasts will need a Reduction.
  • Post-operative use of scars gels have become a mainstay of all our procedures and will give the most optimal possible outcome.
