Many women feel self-conscious and embarrassed about their bodies. Rapid changes happen within 9 months of pregnancy, and though tissues have incredible resilience, the breasts and abdomen, in particular, can sustain permanent changes.

Similar alterations often occur after significant weight fluctuations, so not all women who choose a mommy makeover have given birth.

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.

When the pubic area retains a prominent fat pad, or if the labia majora deflate due to hormonal changes and weight loss, this can affect a woman’s self-esteem and her romantic life. Less commonly talked about procedures added to the makeover include vaginal tightening to restore tone and improve sensation during sexual intercourse. Many people add pubic lift, liposuction or fat-grafting (labia-puffing) of the labia majora to feel more confident about their most intimate areas.

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.

If you want to benefit from the efficiency and satisfying comprehensive effects of combination surgery, this procedure could be what you’re seeking. It’s the ultimate all-in-one way to improve multiple body areas and body confidence with one convenient surgery experience.

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.

  • Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Fat Grafting
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift
  • Vaginal Rejuvenation
  • Brazilian Butt Lift
  • Other Body Procedures
  • Facial Procedures

Tummy tuck surgery, also called abdominoplasty, is especially popular with mothers because it removes stretched and sagging skin in addition to reducing excess fat. It also allows Dr. DuPéré to repair damaged or bulging ab muscles to restore a sleek midsection contour. Abdominoplasty always requires a horizontal scar, which may extend from hip to hip, but Dr. DuPéré makes it as low as possible on the abdomen to ensure it remains covered by clothing and undergarments. Some ladies may be candidates for the mini-abdominoplasty and its shorter incision. In many cases, stretch marks or C-section scars can even be removed during this procedure. The belly button, which is also affected with pregnancies, will also be rejuvenated (umbilicoplasty) with a tummy tuck procedure.

For most patients who get a tummy tuck, Dr. DuPéré includes liposuction to remove any stubborn fat from the abdominal, flank, and lower back roll areas. Many mothers also choose to get liposuction in other places where fat has accumulated after pregnancy, including in the hips, thighs, inner knees, bra rolls, and even under the chin.

Dr. DuPéré frequently performs fat transfer for patients who desire to augment and rejuvenate a separate area while using the unwanted fat removed during the tummy-tuck procedure. This is a popular option for women who want to restore facial volume, but it’s also commonly used for enhancing areas of the body during procedures such as Brazilian butt lift.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can markedly affect a woman’s breasts, altering their size, shape, and density. Breast augmentation with implants is one of the most popular forms of surgical breast enhancement for mommy makeovers here in Toronto, as it helps mothers restore volume that often fades after breastfeeding.

It’s also common for mothers to see their breasts sag with stretched skin after pregnancy. A breast lift can reverse these changes by removing excess tissue, reshaping and remodeling the gland, suspending the new mound to the chest muscle fascia, and, just as the name implies, lifting the breasts to a perkier, more youthful position. Dr. DuPéré frequently combines a breast lift with implants for women who are concerned about both volume and sagging.

It’s common for mothers to want to repair damage caused by childbirth. Dr. DuPéré is very experienced with a variety of options for this sensitive area, and he approaches each case with compassion.

Recovering From a Mommy Makeover

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.

Though the recovery time will be longer, many busy women appreciate having only one event to schedule and prepare for. They benefit from cost-saving, timesaving, less time off work and less disruption to their personal lives. Call to find out why the mommy makeover is a top choice for Toronto women.

  • Preparing for Recovery

  • Get your home ready

    Do basic chores and errands, get a few books, movies and your iPad ready and prepare your bed or a comfortable recliner with lots of pillows.

  • Think about food

    Purchase some low-sodium, easy-to-prepare foods. You might want to make and freeze meals in advance.

  • Arrange childcare

    You won’t be able to pick up your little ones for a few weeks.

  • Pick up prescriptions

    You’ll get these during your last preoperative appointment.

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:

  • Infection
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Problems related to wound healing
  • Fluid buildup
  • Excessive scarring
  • Nerve damage
  • Blood clots

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.

Mommy Makeover FAQ’s

  • Can I Combine A Mommy Makeover With Facial Rejuvenation Procedures?

    Yes, it is possible to combine a mommy makeover with facial rejuvenation procedures to achieve a more comprehensive transformation. Many women choose to address multiple areas of concern at once to minimize downtime and achieve a harmonious overall result.

    Facial rejuvenation procedures commonly combined with a mommy makeover may include facelift, neck lift, eyelid surgery, or non-surgical treatments such as Botox or dermal fillers. By combining these procedures, women can achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance, both in the body and face.

  • Is It Safe To Undergo Multiple Procedures During A Mommy Makeover?

    Undergoing multiple procedures during a mommy makeover is generally safe when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. DuPéré himself. The advantage of combining procedures is that it reduces the number of separate surgeries, anesthesia exposures, and recovery periods, providing a more efficient overall experience.

    However, it is important to discuss your medical history, overall health, and any concerns with your plastic surgeon during the consultation process. They will assess your individual circumstances and

  • How Long Does The Recovery Period Typically Last When Multiple Procedures Are Performed Together?

    The recovery period following a mommy makeover that includes multiple procedures can vary depending on the extent of the surgeries performed. Generally, the initial recovery phase lasts about two to three weeks, during which you will need to rest, avoid strenuous activities, and follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions.

    It is common to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort during this time. As the weeks progress, you will gradually resume normal activities, although strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks. It is important to note that each person’s recovery timeline may vary, and it is crucial to follow your surgeon’s guidance for optimal healing and to achieve the best possible outcomes.

  • Can I Breastfeed After Undergoing A Mommy Makeover With Breast Surgery?

    Breastfeeding after undergoing breast surgery as part of a mommy makeover is possible in many cases. The ability to breastfeed after surgery depends on various factors, including the surgical technique used, the location of the incisions, and the extent of the procedure. It is essential to discuss your desire to breastfeed with your plastic surgeon during the consultation phase. They can recommend appropriate techniques and incision placements that are less likely to interfere with milk ducts and nipples. While individual experiences may vary, many women successfully breastfeed after a mommy makeover.

  • Are There Any Non-Surgical Add-On Options For A Mommy Makeover?

    While surgical procedures are the most effective for comprehensive body rejuvenation, there are some non-surgical options that can complement a mommy makeover. These may include non-invasive body contouring treatments, such as CoolSculpting or radiofrequency treatments, which can help reduce stubborn pockets of fat and tighten the skin.

    Additionally, non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser treatments can enhance the overall results by improving skin texture, reducing fine lines, and promoting a more youthful appearance. It is important to discuss these non-surgical options with our medical experts to determine the best combination of treatments for your specific needs.

  • Can I Undergo A Mommy Makeover If I Plan To Have More Children In The Future?

    While a mommy makeover can provide significant improvements to your post-pregnancy body, it is generally advisable to wait until you have completed your family before undergoing these procedures.

    Pregnancy and childbirth can have a significant impact on the body, potentially affecting the outcomes of the mommy makeover procedures. By waiting until you have finished having children, you can ensure that the results of the surgery are long-lasting and not compromised by future pregnancies.

    However, every individual’s circumstances and goals are unique, so it is important to have a thorough discussion with Dr. DuPéré about your future plans to make an informed decision.

  • Can I Choose Only Certain Add-On Procedures Without Getting A Full Mommy Makeover?

    Absolutely! The beauty of a mommy makeover is its customization to meet your specific needs and goals. If you only wish to address certain areas of concern and not undergo a full mommy makeover, you can discuss your desires with your plastic surgeon. He will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that focuses on your specific areas of concern, whether it’s the abdomen, breasts, thighs, or any other area. The add-on procedures can be tailored to your individual needs, allowing you to achieve your desired results without undergoing a complete mommy makeover.

  • Will I Have Visible Scars After Undergoing Add-On Procedures In A Mommy Makeover?

    The visibility of scars depends on various factors, including the extent of the procedures, the surgical techniques used, and individual healing characteristics. While it is not possible to completely eliminate scars, a skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. DuPéré will take great care to minimize their visibility. Incisions are typically placed in discreet locations and are designed to be easily hidden by clothing or natural body contours.
