A Mommy Makeover is a term that refers to a variety of surgical procedures that restore the shape and appearance of a woman’s pre-pregnancy body. Giving birth can be one of the most rewarding experiences that a woman has. Despite this, the reality is that a woman’s figure shifts after having a child. For some women, these changes can make them feel self-conscious and affect their confidence.
Taking an individualized approach, Dr. Delia knows that no two bodies are the same — therefore, no two Mommy Makeover surgeries will be identical. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Delia helps his patients achieve real results that restore the pre-pregnancy feelings of confidence.. He understands that as a skilled surgeon and artist, he can help empower his patients by transforming their bodies.
What does a Mommy Makeover address?
The Mommy Makeover options may involve a combination of procedures to provide an aesthetic rejuvenation or body contouring surgery. These may involve:
- Facial rejuvenation procedures to provide a more youthful, rested appearance.
- Breast volume enhancement.
- Breast sagging reduction.
- Abdominal skin and fat reduction.
- Reduction of stretch marks.
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
Dr. Delia will develop a comprehensive, individualized treatment program at the initial consultation to address each particular patient’s needs to achieve optimal rejuvenation or restoration of her pre-pregnancy figure.
What does a Mommy Makeover entail?
The operation itself will depend on your prior discussions with Dr. Delia. The duration of the surgery depends on which procedures you choose to undergo. The operation will be performed under general or sedational anesthesia. Depending on the operations, the surgery can take anywhere from 1 to 5 hours.
After the procedure
There may be postoperative discomfort, but this is typically managed with oral pain killers and will subside after a few days.
A soft bra may be worn for breast augmentation and breast lift, and a compression garment may be worn for a tummy tuck. The individual nature of the surgery will define the post-care protocols.
Dr. Delia will discuss all aspects of your Mommy Makeover during your consultation to ensure proper expectations are made and met. Although you may go home after the surgery, we advise you to stay with a capable adult for the first 24 hours to monitor recovery.
Any swelling will typically subside within the first few weeks, and there will be regular check-ins with Dr. Delia to ensure proper healing. Strenuous activity should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. Scars from the procedures will naturally fade within a few months following the operation.
