What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a tailored combination package of plastic surgery procedures. Typically, it is performed during a single surgical session, helping patients avoid the need for multiple recovery periods and keeping costs down.
Dr. Ganchi will work with each patient to customize their Mommy Makeover package based on their needs and goals. Several techniques can be combined to achieve the desired results, including liposuction, abdominoplasty, breast lift, and breast augmentation surgery.
Good Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Women who want to restore their pre-pregnancy body are ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover. Patients who have diastasis recti (sagging abdominal muscles), excess abdominal skin, and stubborn abdominal fat may want to include abdominoplasty in their Mommy Makeover. Patients who have excess fat in other areas may want to include liposuction.
If your breasts sag after breastfeeding, you may be interested in including a breast lift. If your breasts have lost volume after breastfeeding, a breast augmentation with implants may be an excellent procedure to include.
It’s important for patients to be in good health prior to undergoing a Mommy Makeover. They should also keep their expectations realistic and have a positive outlook.
It’s best to come in for a Mommy Makeover once there are no plans to have additional children. To prevent complications, patients must avoid smoking and drinking before their surgery.
Before & Afters
Patients will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ganchi to discuss their Mommy Makeover options. This will allow for a more detailed conversation about the patient’s goals and the procedures that can be included in their Mommy Makeover. Patients should feel free to ask any questions they may have.
During the consultation, patients will need to answer questions about their medical history, including allergies, past procedures, current medications/supplements, and pre-existing health conditions. Dr. Ganchi will perform a physical examination, and photographs may be taken for reference purposes.
Dr. Ganchi will then create a surgical plan for the patient’s Mommy Makeover. A date will be set for the surgery.
Your Mommy Makeover Session
Regardless of which procedures will be involved in the Mommy Makeover, patients will be given sedation or general anesthesia. The next step will be the creation of incisions in key areas. Once all of the desired changes have been implemented, incisions will be closed with sutures.
Mommy Makeover Aftercare
After a Mommy Makeover session, the recovery period can vary in length based on the procedures that were chosen. Patients can expect some temporary soreness, bruising, and swelling. Some minor discomfort will also be present for several days following the session.
During the healing process, patients must avoid strenuous activities to encourage faster healing. Time off from work will be necessary, as will plenty of rest. Post-surgical elastic garments must be worn, and ice packs can be used to bring down the swelling. Additionally, prescriptions will be given for antibiotics and pain-control medication.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The total cost involved with a Mommy Makeover will depend on factors such as the time needed to perform the surgery, the exact procedures included, and anesthesia fees. The price can be discussed when patients come in for their consultation.
