Mommy Makeover Surgery Procedure StepsPosted on September 17, 2020
Mommy makeover is a comprehensive cosmetic surgery involving a combination of two or more cosmetic procedures to restore a women’s pre-pregnancy body. Before the procedure, there will be a preoperative consultation wherein your surgeon will detail the steps involved in this procedure.
This will give you clarity about the procedure and help you in making an informed choice. Mommy makeover is an individualized procedure pertaining to the unique aesthetic and anatomical goals of a specific patient. Therefore, the exact procedure will vary for each person.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Kim provides mommy makeover surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.
Surgical plan for a mommy makeover procedure
Your surgeon will develop an individualized surgical plan which enables them to perform a more precise procedure in the least invasive manner. Your surgeon will assess your body proportion and type, skin laxity, and fatty tissue pockets in order to create a suitable surgical plan. The plan will be prepared after making sure that all of your personal cosmetic needs and goals are taken into account.
The mommy makeover procedure is performed under general anesthesia. You will be put to sleep and won’t feel any discomfort throughout the surgery. The anesthetics will be administered by a qualified anesthesiologist. They will closely monitor your response throughout the surgery. Once the procedure is completed, you will be brought out of anesthesia and moved to a recovery room.
Placement of incisions
If the makeover procedure involves abdominoplasty, your surgeon may place a hip to hip incision just above your pubic area. For enhancing your contours, you may need to undergo a liposuction. For this, tiny incisions are placed in inconspicuous locations in the targeted areas. When breast augmentation and breast lift are performed, the surgeon will make incisions in such a way that the lines would hide within the natural creases of the breast.
If you have experienced breast volume loss after your pregnancy, then your surgeon will insert silicone or saline implants through the incisions as part of your breast augmentation. On the other hand, if the breasts are sagging heavily, your surgeon will eliminate the loose skin by performing a breast lift with implants. The result of this procedure will help to create firmer looking breasts.
In addition to that, you may also undergo liposuction in hips, upper arms, abdomen, flanks, or thighs. Abdominoplasty is sometimes performed in conjunction with liposuction to create a flatter and smoother abdomen. This will also help to eliminate the stretch marks. The incisions will be carefully sutured after the procedure is complete.
After you are awakened from anesthesia, you will be moved to a recovery area where the staff will monitor your progress. If the surgeon determines you are fit enough to leave the hospital, they will allow you to return home the same day after your surgery.
