Many new and experienced moms feel that their bodies aren’t as attractive, slim, or toned as they were before the birth of their children. Unfortunately, while pregnancy gives you the gift of your child, it can also rob you of confidence in your body. You may find that you have excess skin, sagging breasts, and loose muscles. The Mommy Makeover is designed to firm, lift, and enhance your body and restore youthful contours as well as your confidence.
- Desire larger, firmer breasts?
- Envy other women’s flat, toned tummies?
- Have difficulty eliminating areas of excess fat?
The Vectra 3D imaging system is used to preview your possible breast enhancement results. The system takes a before photo of your breasts and then enhances it, showing you what you may look like with various sizes and types of implants. This helps you better select the appropriate implant type and size that will allow you to achieve the aesthetics you desire.
What Makes a Mommy Makeover?
Prepare for Your Surgery
You should diet and exercise leading up to your surgery. This is to ensure that you have strength in your muscles and lose the needed weight. A Mommy Makeover is not a weight-loss program. It is important that you maintain your steady goal weight for at least six months prior to your surgery. Losing or gaining additional weight after your procedure can alter your results.
Take time off from work or social obligations. You should arrange to have 10 to 14 days of downtime after your procedure.
Make arrangements for an alternative caregiver. You will be extremely limited in what actions you can perform in the days following your surgery, including limited movement and limited lifting of heavy objects (like your children).
Eat healthy food the day prior to your surgery for energy, but do NOT eat or drink for eight hours before your surgery because of the anesthesia.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
Immediately following your Mommy Makeover, you will experience bruising, swelling, redness, and some pain. All pain can be controlled with medication prescribed by your doctor. The first few days you should walk every few hours to prevent blood clots from forming. You shouldn’t lift heavy objects or strain your body during the first two weeks following your procedure. Your swelling should begin to subside after two weeks, and mild swelling may remain for up to four months.
Pricing varies depending on the extent of the treatment or surgery. You can see a list of the approximate prices of each procedure on our current fee schedule. Dr. Agullo charges a consultation fee of $100, which is applied to the cost of your treatment. Generally speaking, cosmetic plastic surgery is considered “elective” and is not covered by most insurance plans. The prices listed on our fee schedule represent the minimum cost of the procedures, including anesthesia and surgical facility fees, medical tests, garments, and recovery products. The cost of prescription medications, however, is not included. The exact price of each procedure can only be determined after a thorough consultation. All fees must be paid in full prior to the scheduled treatment.
Most Mommy Makeover surgeries leave minimal scarring that is likely to fade over time. All incisions are strategically placed so that the resulting scars can be easily hidden by clothing, underwear, or a bathing suit. If you underwent a C-section, your incision can be made at the same incision site to eliminate extra scarring.
No part of the Mommy Makeover procedure will prevent you from having children. However, it is advised to not have additional pregnancies following your Mommy Makeover. Pregnancy or weight gain after your procedure can alter your results and may necessitate secondary surgery to restore adequate results.
The Mommy Makeover is designed to save as much time as possible. Multiple procedures may be performed in conjunction with each other. The most common combinations are breast augmentation/breast lift and liposuction/abdominoplasty.
