What to Expect When Getting a Mommy Makeover: The Cosmetic Surgery Journey


one of our most common procedures at
this time our mommy makeovers that’s actually a combination of procedures so
today we’re gonna talk about what that journey is like from the first visit
that you come in until the surgery is actually completed I think that the
process about the mommy makeover actually starts probably before the baby
ever comes people have this wonderful period in their life where you’re in
your marriage or in your relationship and you do a lot of exciting things you
you’re in love and you have this physical attachment to your other person
and then what happens with pregnancy and the joy and everything that that brings
there are physical changes and I think that one of the things people look at
afterwards is they’re really happy with the new bundle of joy and the baby and
everything that that’s brought but they miss that vision and that experience
that they had before so people start thinking about that what it was like
before the baby and then they start thinking about what can I do to get back
to that place this is what I’m missing or this is what I want and the big thing
in all that is the I this is about the mom this is about the person who’s had
the baby it’s not about what their husband wants or their partner wants
it’s a very personal thing and sometimes the spouse doesn’t understand that like
I love you the way you are you are great you don’t need to change anything for me
and that’s the key it’s not for them it’s for the person who’s actually going
to undergo the journey I think that probably the first place people go when
they start thinking about this is the internet because that’s where a lot of
this phenomenon came about a mommy makeover is a group of procedures it
actually probably came about just as a marketing ploy by a plastic surgeon
somewhere honestly just to talk about the things
that we commonly do after pregnancy the most common is a tummy tuck
because muscles have been stretched skin has been stretched and you can’t get
those ABS flat no matter what you go back you’re doing a workout you’re doing
everything you did before but it just is not paying off and that’s the big area
the second area the kind of pregnancy takes at all on our breasts they get
deflated they lose volume maybe there’s a little bit of sag there and so the
combination of fixing the tummy and fixing the breast that became that quote
mommy makeover you’ve been on the Internet you found us
and you know that we’re the place to come to to talk about this you’ve looked
at our before and afters and then what are you gonna do you’re gonna prepare
yourself to come in and have a visit with us and talk about what this is
gonna mean for you individually and address your individual needs that
process is meeting with a doctor and one of our specialized consultants and we’re
gonna talk yo u through the process first we’re gonna listen so we want to find
out what is it that you want done what is it that bothers you everybody’s
different it’s a cliche but we really customized the procedures you’re gonna
come in and say this bothers me this bothers me we’re going to say great this
is what we can do to take care of that we’re gonna say you know what you look
really good I don’t think that it’s worth making a change in this area for
you know the degree of looseness that you have and so we’ll be giving you that
information as well if you’re interested in breastwork we’re then gonna look at
breast augmentation versus breast lift a combination of the two and occasionally
breast reduction some people’s breasts are just too large and they want to get
that taken care of if we’re looking at a breast augmentation we’re going to talk
about different types of implants and we’re going to then try on different
sizes of implants so that you can get an idea what fits you so we’ve had our
consultation visit we’ve found out the correct procedures
the combination that’s going to be right for you at that visit we’ve also talked
about what you’re going to need to do to prepare yourself before your surgery any
medications that you need to stop things that you need to have on hand at home
the garments that we’re going to provide you after surgery we will have discussed
the specific risks and the benefits of the things that we propose so we’ve had
that conversation and now we start getting up to the surgery itself at the
surgery you’re going to come into our facility and we do this as an outpatient
for the majority of patients and you’re going to undergo your procedure which is
going to last probably anywhere from three to five or six hours that time
length how long is your operation is going to be based upon what procedures
you’ve chosen or what the right ones are for you we’ve had our surgeries we’ve
had a great first night with the recovery you’ve taken your pain
medication as you need it you’ve taken the antibiotics that we’ve
prescribed and you’ve come back to see us the very next day so we don’t delay
seeing our patients after surgery and I think there may be people who don’t see
them for a few days or a week but in our case we want to make sure we see
everybody that next day after surgery we change the
and tape in the gauze and the bandages if there’s those for an incision we
change the garments that you will be wearing that first night we provide you
with new things so that everything is a fresh start but most importantly we get
to see everything to make sure it looks the way we want it to look you just
going through this you’re one time you’re not going to know how things are
supposed to look so that’s an important visit the very first day then we see you
about a week after that that’s when stitches are removed now most of our
stitches for these procedures are underneath the skin they don’t have to
be removed we just have to clip a couple of the little knots but we checked the
incisions and make sure they look the way they’re supposed to look then we see
you again in another week after that but if you had a question we would see you
at any time or if we had a concern we would see you more frequently but the
pretty routine visit is day after surgery week after surgery two weeks after surgery
and then we individualize it even more I’ll have some patients that are saying
you know what doc I’m doing good if I have an issue I’ll call you I’m too busy
really to come in and I live an hour away and I’ll say great if you have a
concern and give us a call come back or send us a picture and then I have people
that are like I would just feel more comfortable if I saw you again next week
and we just took one more look at it before I went back to work out or
whatever it is I’ll be like great I’ll see you next week
so because an individual process after that but we don’t start to judge our
results until we’re about three months from surgery because that’s when we take
our pictures and that’s when most of the swelling has gone
and that’s when most of your result is done at three months the incisions are
not the way they’re going to be that actually does take longer that part of
this journey is not going to be done until you’re closer to a year after your
surgery but at three months we get a pretty good idea of how things are going
