How long does recovery take?
After your mommy makeover surgery, you will be wearing compression and support garments appropriate for the specific procedures you had. In general, you should allow two weeks before returning to an office job, and approximately five to six weeks before returning to full activity levels. This will depend on the number and type of procedures you have.
While you will see a very nice change immediately after surgery, it will take a few months for the swelling of your breasts, abdomen, genitalia, or buttocks to resolve to the point that your final results are achieved.
Since every mommy makeover is tailored specifically to the patient, Dr. Smith will ensure you have full and complete postoperative instructions, along with an exceptional level of post-operative care and attention.
What can I expect from the results?
A mommy makeover is designed to return your body as closely as possible to its pre-pregnancy appearance – or better. For example, if your breasts lost volume and sagged as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding, they will be lifted and volumized; if your abdomen developed a bulge and became soft, it will once again be youthful, tight, and flat.
Will I have many scars after a mommy makeover?
The restoration of your pre-baby body will require incisions that leave scars, but they will be placed in the most discreet locations possible. Dr. Smith is highly skilled at expertly placing the smallest possible incisions in the least noticeable areas. You will be free to wear revealing clothing with no concerns about visible scars.
Will all the procedures be performed in one surgery?
Having multiple procedures in one surgical appointment can be a transformative experience. It offers a savings in time (one recovery for several operations) and cost (one set of anesthesia and operating room fees for several operations). Some patients will be better served by having two surgeries. Every case is unique, and Dr. Smith will work with you to develop a surgical plan most appropriate for your goals.
