Ideal candidates for this surgery are women who have gone through childbearing, and have tried to achieve a tighter figure through a healthy diet with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgical intervention is needed to regain their pre-pregnancy body. If you are past childbearing and are frustrated with its effects on your body, such as deflated, sagging breasts, loose skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, this procedure could be ideal for you. The overall goal of Dr. Martin is to help you get back your pre-pregnancy shape so you can get back to living life without feeling self-conscious.
The mommy makeover procedure is a unique surgery, tailored for women by plastic surgeon Dr. Martin based on the areas of concern to be addressed. A variety of procedures can be considered together — the most popular treatments are a breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours depending on the complexity. Also, a day-long stay at the hospital may be needed.
What to Expect
For most women, the healing process lasts about six weeks, and the majority of women are able to resume a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Strenuous exercise should be held off for about six weeks. Many changes happen in the first several months after surgery, such as decreased swelling and scar softening/fading, it can take 6 -12 months for the final results to be apparent. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at Martin Plastic Surgery can be life changing for women, giving them their self-confidence once again.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs will vary greatly depending on which procedures are part of your surgical plan. During your consultation, Dr. Martin will need to develop your treatment plan and then he will be able to discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is about rejuvenating your body and confidence after having children, so it is best to concentrate on getting the results you want rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. Martin Plastic Surgery accepts several forms of payment and we also offer financing options.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Martin, he will talk with you in order to understand your needs and concerns before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can give you suggestions on what to include in your mommy makeover. Most women include a breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both) along with a tummy tuck and liposuction.
What about other treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body, which is why nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to produce the results you want. In your consultation, Dr. Martin will discuss other surgical treatments that may benefit you. After listening to your concerns and goals, he will tell you if procedures like labiaplasty, thigh lift, and scar revision may be helpful.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a rejuvenated figure, it does leave surgical scars. Dr. Martin will make every effort possible to create incisions that are as well-hidden as possible. Most scars will be placed so they can be concealed with swimsuits and underwear. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Martin or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care so your incisions heal properly.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete so that your results aren't compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk for changing if you get pregnant again. Should you have another child after a mommy makeover, another surgery may be done to restore your results.
