With age and childbirth come a variety of changes with a woman’s body and appearance. Not only do the abdominal muscles tend to stretch and loose tone, but also excess skin and increased body fat around the abdomen create a look that was not there before pregnancy and weight gain. Each patient has specific and unique aesthetic goals, and often times a single procedure or even a combination of procedures such as a tummy tuck /abdominoplasty, liposuction/liposculpting , breast lift/mastopexy or breast augmentation will be recommended to return your body to the youthful, fit pre-pregnancy appearance.
Mommy Makeover surgery is performed under general anesthesia so you will be asleep during the entire surgery. This surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but sometimes patients stay overnight for observation. Out-of-town patients may stay in one of our overnight recovery suites with a nurse that is available. The surgery itself generally takes 2-3 hours, and may be longer depending on which procedures are being performed . After your surgery, you will be able to go home or stay in the overnight facility with office follow-up soon thereafter. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling for about a week or two after surgery, but most patients can usually return to work soon thereafter.
