What to Expect from Your Mommy Makeover Recovery

In recent years, I have noticed the continual growth and popularity of the mommy makeover. By combining a tummy tuck (using my Scarpa fascia technique for the waist), liposuction, and a cosmetic breast surgery, my mommy makeover is able to provide substantial body contouring results for women trying to regain their pre-baby bodies. Despite its popularity, there are still many of my patients don’t understand what is involved with the mommy makeover. This is especially true of the expected recovery associated with this combination procedure.

There is a common misconception that mommy makeover recovery will be especially taxing for patients due to the comprehensive nature of undergoing three procedures at once. In my experience, the opposite is true. My patients are generally very happy with the added benefits of combining their procedures.

  • Since the three procedures are performed simultaneously, you will only have to go through one recovery process instead of recovering from your first procedure and then beginning the process all over again for your second and third ones.
  • This also means cutting costs by only having to pay hospital fees like anesthesia and surgical fees once instead of three times.
  • The mommy makeover is an outpatient procedure, meaning patients will not require a hospital stay.

Check out the video below where I explain the recovery timetable for patients following their mommy makeover.

One of the great things about a mommy makeover is its ability to give each patient the opportunity to customize her treatment to her unique aesthetic goals. However, this freedom also requires more thorough planning and consultation in order to help determine the surgical path that is best to help you achieve the results you desire. So do your research, weigh your options, and consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who will help come up with the right treatment plan for you.

The Time is Right for a Mommy Makeover

Beach and pool season is nearly here. If you’re like many of us, you probably can’t wait to get out there and enjoy some fun in the sun after being cooped up through the fall and winter. Though for certain people, it’s not that simple. If you have struggled to regain your pre-pregnancy figure through diet and exercise alone, a mommy makeover at Southern Plastic Surgery can be just what you need to reshape your silhouette and make you more comfortable and confident than ever before.

By combining a tummy tuck with liposuction and a cosmetic breast surgery, my mommy makeover is able to target several common issues many mothers deal with after pregnancy. Mommy makeover surgery can be perfect for women trying to take a few inches off their waistline, while also firming sagging breasts and tightening their stomach.

If you’re still curious about how a mommy makeover can help you achieve the figure you desire, check out the video below in which I discuss the flexibility of the mommy makeover and how it can help women with a variety of aesthetic needs:

Women should only consider a mommy makeover once they are finished having kids, as additional pregnancies can negatively affect the results of your procedure. Since each patient’s body reacts differently to pregnancy and childbirth, a pre-surgical consultation is hugely important to determine the best procedures for your needs.

“B”: Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Patient*

Hear From Our Southern Plastic Surgery PatientsLike many mothers, “B” was frustrated by the way her appearance had changed after having children. Even after returning to their pre-pregnancy weight, many women are left with a “pooch” and/or sagging skin, especially after multiple pregnancies. Learn more about “B’s” tummy tuck story:

After having 2 children in 16 months I no longer recognized my body. At only 29 years old it was devastating. I went to Dr. David Whiteman for a consultation and for the first time I had so much hope and excitement that he could help me. It gave me the hope and inspiration to lose all my baby weight and more. At 30 years old I am in the best shape of my life. I could never repay Dr. Whiteman for the gift he gave me and my family. Every day I wake up with excitement and enthusiasm about my body and my future. Thank you so much Dr. Whiteman.

 

“K”: Breast Reduction Patient*

“K” wanted to undergo a breast reduction procedure due to back pain and posture issues she was having. She was nervous about undergoing her procedure due to a natural aversion to surgery, but had no regrets following her experience at SPS. Hear more about “K’s” experience below:

Dr. Whiteman and his staff are such top notch, first-class people that after my recent surgery I felt compelled to write and spread the word about my experience with them. Anything I write praising him and his staff who helped with my surgery really couldn’t do these folks justice. They are all just super. If you want an excellent, down to earth doctor with an incredible bed-side manner look no further than Dr. Whiteman. His staff is helpful and friendly and made my experience wonderful.

 

“S”: Cellulaze™ Cellulite Treatment Patient*

“S” visited SPS, for one of our newest and most advanced treatments, Cellulaze™ cellulite treatment. Cellulaze™ directly treats cellulite by addressing the three root causes (rigid connective tissue, excess fat beneath the skin, and thinning skin) from within. Here’s what she had to say about her experience:

Cellulaze™ cellulite treatment worked wonders for my stubborn cellulite. I work out and eat healthy, but couldn’t get rid of it. I had the treatment on Friday and was at work on Monday. I could not be more thrilled with my results. Dr. Whiteman and his staff always go above and beyond to make me feel welcome and comfortable.
