What is a Mommy Makeover?
Mommy Makeover is one of the hottest trends in today’s cosmetic surgery. This systematic approach views the changes of the aging body much the same as a facelift approaches the aging face. Today we are looking at the whole person and devising a customized plan for each person’s unique changes and goals. At the same time, we’re looking at the aging face and combining body sculpturing with facial rejuvenation which allows a one time anesthetic and recovery.
Mommy Makeover Surgery Procedure
Dr. Walker performs most procedures in her accredited office based surgery center. Using only board certified M.D. anesthesiologists for patient safety and comfort allows her to focus completely on the artistic details of sculpting and reshaping your new look. Safety must always remain the number one priority. We usually limit office surgery
to around five hours but carefully evaluate each individuals health and home support for outpatient surgery. Since most procedures can be performed within this time, the majority of our patients are eligible for the privacy and convenience of our office based surgery center. Nonetheless, we require hospital surgery and an overnight stay if there are any special concerns or medical considerations.
Mommy Makeover usually involves an analysis of the arms, breasts, abdomen, hips and thighs. Available procedures can be planned in a multitude of combinations and include several variations of breast reduction, reshaping or enlargement, abdominoplasty, liposuction and lower body lifts to tighten the thighs and buttocks. Recovery for most procedures can be as little as 2-4 days for liposuction and breast surgery and 2 or more weeks for more extensive procedures including tummy tucks.
Advantages of Combining Procedures in a Mommy Makeover
The advantage of combining procedures in a mommy makeover is that recovery is usually the same as recovery for the “biggest” procedure, which is far less than the total down-time or risk if each procedure is performed independently.
