Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover | Swamy Clinic Sherman TXWhat is a Mommy Makeover?

The mommy makeover is a complementary combination of procedures performed to help you get your pre-baby body back. It typically involves a combination of Breast Surgery with a Body surgery.

Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover

When done in an appropriate and safe way it often is a very satisfying operation for a woman who wants to feel rejuvenated and restore their pre-pregnancy state. This combination of procedures is also used in patients who have had massive weight loss through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise.

What is involved with the Tummy Tuck?

Tummy Tuck involves removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen to tighten and improve the contour of the waist. Commonly also we tighten the muscles which become lax with pregnancy to give you a better silhouette. This can be extremely rewarding, especially if you have maximized your weight loss and exercise regimen.

Can liposuction be included?

Most commonly, liposuction is part of the procedure as an adjunct to the tummy tuck. It can contour areas of fullness along the waist and hip area. Sometimes we do this with liposuction of the thigh region or axilla.

What options are available for breasts?

This depends on a patient’s individual anatomy. In patients that desire or need just volume, or need more fullness on the upper part of the breast (upper pole fullness) we can add an implant.

For some, the breasts are droopy or there is excess skin. In this situation, we need to often combine the implant with a breast lift (mastopexy) to improve shape. Remember that shape is just as important as the size of the breast, if not more important!

How long after having a baby can I get surgery?

This will vary for each individual patient. The reason for this is that each woman recovers differently, some could wait as little as 6 weeks while others would have to wait as long as a year. If you are breastfeeding wait at least 3 months after you have stopped, some doctors recommend waiting 6 months to ensure your breasts are done changing.

Before getting a Mommy makeover

Before moving forward with surgery, here are some things you should consider first:

  • Hold off until you are sure you won’t be having any more children
  • Make sure your body has fully recovered from pregnancy
  • Keep in mind you will have to refrain from any household activity for about two weeks, during which time you will still be caring for an infant.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Recovery after the combination of procedures involves dressing and compressive bandages. In the tummy tuck, we usually do use drains as well. This helps keep the area compressed and from accumulating fluid. Patients are typically seen back in 2-3 days and subsequent visits are spaced weekly, monthly, and then longer.

When can I return to work after my Mommy Makeover?

Return to work depends on your tolerance to pain medicine and level of activity on the job. Swamy Clinic recommends refraining from heavy lifting or straining needs for about 4-6 weeks.
