The mommy makeover is a popular surgical procedure for women after childbirth. It allows them to regain their ideal body form and eliminate the negative effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. At District Plastic Surgery, we provide safe and personalized mommy makeovers in Washington DC.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy makeover is a set of surgical procedures performed to address different parts of the patient’s body. The procedures involved will be customized based on each patient’s unique needs. They can include any combination of a breast augmentation, breast lift, augmentation mastopexy, liposuction, tummy tuck, breast reduction, and buttocks augmentation.
Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?
A mommy makeover is recommended for women who are completely finished with childbirth and breastfeeding. Candidates should be in good overall heath with no surgery-related healing issues.
Patients who are at or near their ideal body weight and are non-smokers are ideal candidates for a mommy makeover. Candidates who are willing to commit to a full recovery process and healthy lifestyle can enjoy lasting results.
We will start your consultation by discussing your goals and concerns. A physical evaluation will follow, along with an assessment of your medical records. A surgical plan will be created based on your goals and concerned areas. We will discuss all the details of your surgical plan, including the exact procedures involved, recovery process, results, and cost. Feel free to raise questions at any time during your consultation.
You will be given instructions to prepare for your mommy makeover surgery. This will include keeping your schedule open on the day of your surgery through the expected recovery period. You will also need to arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery and help take care of your needs during recovery.
A mommy makeover surgery will usually last between three and five hours. In instances where it could last more than six hours, the procedures may be split into two separate surgical sessions for safety and optimal results.
The exact surgical procedure will depend on the techniques involved. General anesthesia will be administered. Incisions will be created, and after all changes have been made, these incisions will be closed with stitches.
The Recovery Period
The patient can go home after their condition has fully stabilized. Compression garments must be worn to aid in the healing process, and drains may be placed. Recovery instructions will be provided, along with prescriptions to deal with minor side effects such as bruising, swelling, and discomfort.
Physical activities will be prohibited for the first few weeks. Strenuous physical exercises will not be allowed for several weeks. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled to assess the recovery process and remove sutures. The full results of a patient’s mommy makeover can be seen after the patient has fully recovered.
Mommy Makeover Cost
The cost of a mommy makeover will depend on the techniques involved during the surgery. Anesthesia fees, the total surgical time, and facilities used during surgery may also affect the overall price of the procedure.
