What to Expect From A Mommy Makeover
One of the most popular aesthetic enhancements for women who have had children, a mommy makeover is typically two or more procedures customized to suit the needs and goals of the patient. In most cases, the foundational operations will be a breast lift and tummy tuck; however, many supplemental options can provide more comprehensive rejuvenation. Dr. Richard Zeff, our experienced plastic surgeon, will tailor a treatment plan based on the unique desires of each woman, including both surgical and non-surgical modalities.
Since a mommy makeover from our practice is highly customized, the surgical and recovery experience will vary from individual to individual. However, there are certain aspects patients can typically rely on to occur, all of which Dr. Zeff will fully explain during the initial consultation.
After surgery, patients may experience swelling and tenderness in the treated areas, typically the breasts and abdomen, as well as any other regions that were addressed. Undergoing multiple procedures does not necessarily mean a more extensive recovery period. In most cases, the treatment that requires the longest downtime will usually dictate the length of recovery. Though some initial discomfort may occur, pain medication can generally help manage these effects. Everyone heals at a different rate; however, strenuous activity should be avoided for at least a month following the operation.
Ultimately, a mommy makeover from our practice can help women regain a more youthful figure after having children, and Dr. Zeff will customize the treatment plan to include only the procedures the patient needs and/or desires most. Our goal is to help individuals achieve the best results possible, and we strive to provide exceptional care at every stage.
