Mommy Makeover The Woodlands
What Is A Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures that are performed to get mothers their pre-baby bodies back. The exact combination of procedures can vary from client to client but can include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast lift (mastopexy), and/or breast enhancement (augmentation). Sometimes liposuction is also added for body contouring in the mommy makeover.
Who Benefits From A Mommy Makeover
The ideal client for a mommy makeover operation is one that has loose, excess abdominal skin and fat along with loose muscles in the abdominal wall resulting in an abdomen that bulges out. This is commonly seen after having children. Also, these clients will typically have breasts that are sagging and/or breasts that are small for their body frame. Lastly, some of these clients will have excess fat in areas such as the flanks, thighs, and/or abdomen that are treatable with liposuction.
Mommy Makeover Surgery
Clients that smoke should stop at least two months prior to your mommy makeover procedure. However, you are still at an increased risk of complications even if you stop smoking but the risks are lessened. A test will be done on the day of surgery to ensure that you have not been smoking. Any prescription or over-the-counter medication that can cause bleeding should be stopped two weeks before the mommy makeover surgery if cleared to do so by the prescribing physician.

The mommy makeover operation usually takes place in an outpatient surgery center. However, depending on how much surgery is performed, the operation may need to be done in a hospital and an overnight stay may be required for safety reasons. The operation normally takes about five to seven hours. Again, the length of time depends on how much is being done.
