SURGICAL TECHNIQUE

A mommy makeover is a custom treatment, tailored for patients based on the specific body areas to be corrected. While many procedures can be applied together, the most common treatments are breast lift with or without implants, abdominoplasty, and liposuction. All of these procedures are performed using general anesthesia and depending on the number of treatments it could take around 3 – 7 hours. In addition, an overnight stay at the hospital may be required. It is common to incorporate nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, such as laser treatments and injectables that can be applied to smooth facial lines, as well as reduce surface irregularities.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The mommy makeover surgery is considered an invasive treatment and can address a vast section of the body. After a recovery period in the hospital, patients will start the recovery at home with rest and proper aftercare. The recovery process is generally a slow process. Standing upright will be hard the first couple of weeks, and a carefully-followed home treatment protocol will be required to ensure the incisions and sutures heal safely. The majority of women find the recovery phase can take up to 6 months. Even though the primary healing could take months, most patients are able to get back to a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Exercise should wait for approximately 2 months.
