How Can a Mommy Makeover Help?

Mommy makeover surgery refers to any combination of procedures performed at the same time to enhance a woman's body after pregnancy and aging. Because no 2 women are exactly alike, no 2 mommy makeovers follow the same steps.

A mommy makeover is especially appealing because it allows patients to treat multiple areas of their body at once, reducing the total downtime and cost necessary for recuperation compared with getting separate procedures.

Because there is no official standard for mommy makeover surgery, each one can be completely customized to each patient. Some women see significant changes in their breasts after pregnancy, while others are more bothered by their lower bodies or other areas. Regardless of your concerns, Dr. DuPéré can create the results you desire.

Your Mommy Makeover Options

The endless options for customization are what make mommy makeovers so appealing. Instead of adopting a "one size fits all" approach, Dr. DuPéré, being a plastic surgeon and an artist, can adjust his surgical plan to suit your precise specifications, focusing on your areas of utmost concern. For most patients, the mommy makeover combines some sort of breast enhancement with abdominoplasty. However, others have incorporated other forms of body contouring and even facial enhancements to their surgeries. During your initial consultation with Dr. DuPéré, you'll discuss your desired outcome and work together to develop a surgical plan that exceeds your expectations. Read on to learn about the most common choices.

During your consultation, Dr. DuPéré helps you choose the series of procedures that are appropriate and safe for you to undergo.

Recovering From a Mommy Makeover

Preparing for Recovery

Due to the extensive nature of many mommy makeover procedures, it's vitally important to allow yourself plenty of time to rest and recuperate at home after surgery. Although the exact length of your recuperation depends on which procedures you had, most of Dr. DuPéré's mommy makeover patients take at least 2 weeks off work and other responsibilities.

During this time, you'll need to have a friend or family member help you around the house, especially with physical activities such as cleaning. You may need to avoid stooping and heavy lifting for some time, and exerting yourself can raise your blood pressure and affect your body's natural healing processes. You'll also need to refrain from driving while you are using prescribed pain medicine.

During your follow-up appointments, Dr. DuPéré evaluates your healing and removes sutures and bandages. Drains are often used. He also clears you to resume activities such as exercise and intimacy. However, you'll have a good sense of the type of recuperation you can expect well before your surgery date.

Potential Risks and Complications

While undergoing multiple procedures in a single surgery is safe, Dr. DuPéré prefers to keep total surgical time less than 6 hours if possible. Your age and medical history will be taken into consideration. No surgery is completely without risk. Although Dr. DuPéré has an excellent safety record, complications are always possible. These can include:

Dr. DuPéré carefully screens each patient prior to surgery to evaluate her candidacy, and he doesn't perform mommy makeover on any patient who has a medical condition that precludes her from safely undergoing the surgery. Not smoking is also crucial to avoid some complications. By adhering to your post-surgical instructions, you can do your part to ensure your recuperation is smooth, comfortable, and uneventful.
