Mommy Makeover Frequently Asked Questions
- Am I a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Because each area of the body needs to be individually assessed, the simplest way to make this determination is by scheduling an appointment today for a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. This will allow us to determine just what procedures are applicable and in what order they will need to occur.
- Is a mommy makeover an option if I am still planning to have children?
If you are planning to space your children 2 or 3 years apart, then you may consider waiting. Tummy tucks are still an option; however, it would involve tightening your skin rather than putting your midline muscle back together, as this area stretches with pregnancy.
- How long does the Mommy Makeover procedure take?
The length of the surgery is dependent upon what you have done. Even more extensive procedures involving a combination of implants, lifts, and tummy tucks should take less than five hours in the operating room and an hour or so in recovery before you head home.
- How long is the recovery time?
First, know that recovery is a process that happens over time, and in this case that time is typically about eight weeks. You will be limited to being at home for roughly the first two weeks. For the next two weeks, you can go back to normal life but need to limit yourself to light exercise only and lifting no more than 20 pounds. After five or six weeks, you can resume exercising, but nothing too vigorous. At eight weeks you can return to normal activities entirely.
