Mommy Makeover

Rejuvenate your body back to its pre-pregnancy shape.

Most women experience permanent and undesirable body changes after child bearing that can readily be reversed by surgically re-tightening the loosened abdominal muscles and over-hanging skin and lifting and tightening the breasts with or without the use of implants. This process that combines both a tummy tuck and a breast lift (with or without an implant) is endearingly named a “mommy makeover” as it restores the beauty of a woman’s body to its original and youthful appearance and sensation both for the patient/mother as well as for her significant partner.

Because it is a combined procedure, the patient is transferred to a nursing recovery suite for 24 to 48 hours where she is carefully monitored and attended to by skilled personnel who are adept in taking care of such patients who have had long hours of surgery.

Often a pain relief pump is used when such surgeries are combined to ease the overall discomfort. The medication is delivered directly into the surgical areas allowing the patient to ambulate sooner and take less oral narcotic medications.

Most patients return to their daily routines within 2 to 4 weeks and exercising or other more strenuous activities requiring abdominal muscle work and physical strain in 6 to 8 weeks with specific guidelines for graded increases in resistance and endurance activities.
