Who Is a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
If you are healthy, over 18 years old, and are unhappy with the changes in your body related to pregnancy, childbirth, and/or breastfeeding, you may be a candidate for a mommy makeover.
If you plan to have future pregnancies, Dr. Sato may advise to wait before undergoing some of the procedures, as further pregnancies could diminish the results of the mommy makeover.
Smokers are not typically ideal candidates for a mommy makeover. This is because smoking can cause complications during the healing process, prolonging downtime. When smokers are interested in this combination procedure, they must quit several weeks before the date of the surgery and must not smoke during recovery.
What Happens During a Mommy Makeover?
No two mommy makeovers are the same. Some procedures can be performed simultaneously, while others must be done separately. Dr. Sato will work with you to develop a surgical plan that takes your safety, aesthetic goals, family and/or work obligations into account.
What Can I Expect While Recovering from a Mommy Makeover?
Recovery is widely variable dependent upon the individual patient and the number and type of procedures performed simultaneously. Generally, a degree of swelling and bruising will be present for a time before ameliorating. Cold compresses are encouraged to address swelling, as are elastic post-surgical garments.
Time off from work will be required, along with plenty of rest. It will be important to follow Dr. Sato’s care directions as closely as possible to ensure high-quality results.
What Is the Cost of a Mommy Makeover?
The price of this combination procedure varies depending on a multitude of factors. Factors that impact mommy makeover cost include whether or not breast implants are being placed, how much excess tissue is being removed, how long the surgical session takes, and which procedures are being included.
Generally, the surgery is less expensive than it would be to get all of the procedures it contains separately.
