Mommy Makeover Surgery FAQ

  1. What parts are treated in the Mommy Makeover?

    This procedure can consist of a combination of different parts, such as breast augmentation, reduction, or lift, full or mini tummy tuck, liposuction, and genital surgery.

  2. What does the Mommy Makeover operation consist of?

    During the procedure, the breasts are lifted to their normal position, and if there is a loss of volume, breast implants can be used. Alternatively, if the breast is too large and causes problems, it can be reduced in size. In abdominoplasty, the muscles are tightened, narrowing the waist. In addition, excess skin and fat are removed, including all or parts of the stretch marks.

  3. Can I have children again?

    This procedure does not prevent you from having more children, but if you wish to have more children, it would be advisable to wait, as the results may be compromised.

  4. Can a cesarean scar affect the results of a Mommy Makeover?

    The abdominoplasty or mini-abdominoplasty scar sits on top of the old C-section scar, so it may even enhance it.

  5. Will I have scars?

    Scars will be there, but they will be as delicate and limited as possible, following the best techniques, and teaching the patient how to take care of them. It is not possible to perform these procedures without scars.

  6. What can I expect after surgery?

    It depends on the type and number of procedures performed, breast, abdomen, or both. You can go home the same day, or you may be advised to stay one or two days. The recovery period is usually between one and four weeks. Results are evident within the first few days.

  7. When can I return to my normal activities?

    During the first week, the patient will need extra help with childcare. After that, the recovery period is about four weeks, depending on the interventions that have been performed.

    As for the work routine, depending on the work and the interventions performed, you can return to work after four weeks, although it is advisable not to make physical efforts.

The so-called Mommy Makeover, a term that could be translated as the mommy makeover, is emerging as a fashion promoted by great international artists who have just become mothers and want to recover the perfection of their bodies after giving birth. It is a set of plastic surgery procedures -three, to be exact- whose purpose is to recover the shape and smoothness of the breasts, a completely flat abdomen, and eliminate excess fat, especially in the thighs and waist.

There is no doubt that pregnancy takes its toll on the mother’s body: the breasts increase in size to prepare for breastfeeding, the uterus expands incredibly, and with it, the abdomen, and more than a few pregnant women gain more weight than they should.

What happens after?

After breastfeeding, the breasts lose their smoothness and appear saggier. The uterus recovers its average volume. Still, the belly’s skin has lost its elasticity, showing some flabby sagging, or not if the extra kilos gained during pregnancy are still in place.

All this makes that after their maternity, many women are obsessed to recover their image and even improve it—special diets, a lot of exercise, special gymnastics, passive gymnastics, cosmetic treatments, etc. Anything goes to achieve the goal. None of it is harmful to health, and some of these initiatives even bring clear benefits, such as healthy eating and regular exercise. The problem is that the process is slow and does not always give the desired results.

Who is the ideal candidate?

The best candidate for Mommy Makeover is a woman who has sagging breasts, uneven breasts, decreased breast volume, drooping nipples, or stretched areolas as a result of pregnancy and lactation.

We use general anesthesia.

The operation is performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon removes the skin, gland, and excess fat, places the nipple in its correct location, and then reshapes the remaining breast.
During the first consultation, the plastic surgeon will evaluate the size and shape of the breasts, the skin’s firmness, and your general state of health. A breast exploration will also be performed. In some cases, a mammographic study will be requested according to the patient’s age.

Be sincere in your consultation.

You should sincerely state your expectations so that the plastic surgeon shows you the alternatives available for your problem, with the risks and limitations of each of them.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, with the patient remaining asleep during the operation.

After the surgery, you can return to work in 3-4 weeks. Although you can make almost everyday life in a few days, you should limit strenuous physical activity for a few weeks until you recover from the operation. For 1 or 2 weeks, it is advisable to avoid sexual intercourse so that the incisions do not swell; for 3 or 4 weeks, avoid intense physical contact with the breasts. It is usual for trim crusts or a little fluid to appear through the incisions. Your plastic surgeon will see you during the months following surgery to see the evolution. If you have any discomfort between visits or any doubts about what you should or should not do, do not hesitate to call them.
