The popular mommy makeover is a special combination of plastic surgery procedures that is designed for each unique individuals. Many women who have had children and have been through pregnancy and breastfeeding may have several areas of their body that have not “snapped back” after these changes to their bodies. This increases the desire for many women to have cosmetic plastic surgery performed. In most cases, women have several areas of the body they will want to address, which is when Dr. Ellen Mahony of Westport, CT may recommend a custom-designed series of treatments called the mommy makeover.
What procedures are performed during a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover plan may include:
- Breast lift and/or augmentation
- Breast reduction
- Fat removal via liposuction
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
Each treatment plan is uniquely created to fit the needs of the patient. Not everyone will have the same procedures involved in their mommy makeover. Dr. Ellen Mahony encourages women to schedule a consultation appointment at her practice to discuss the specific areas of the body that require attention. Then, she provides women with the best combination of treatments that can meet their needs.
What can I expect from my surgery?
It is important that women discuss with their doctor what they can expect from their surgery. These surgeries are often outpatient procedures where patients return home the same day for recovery. Patients are given special instructions to follow closely during this time to reduce the risk of infection and unwanted complications. We encourage women to arrange help around the house for children, as fatigue and the inability to lift certain amounts of weight may restrict a patient from common caregiving activities. All procedures are performed in a manner that reduces scarring. We recommend women take necessary days off of school and work while they recover at home.
