Surgical Bra: A surgical bra designed for your specific cosmetic procedure is an essential part of ensuring the results you and your Doctor planned.  Each bra provides proper support to the surgical areas for enhanced comfort while it helps the skin conform to your new contours. Further, a surgical bra can help prevent the ‘throbbing” sensation, experienced by some after surgery. The garment may also help reduce tension at incision site, preventing stretching and exaggerated scaring.

Applying cold therapy immediately following surgical procedures soothes as it numbs the nerves, reducing pain sensation. Cold therapy is found to reduce swelling by constricting the capillary vessels hence slowing blood flow.  Cold helps slow fluid buildup at the incision site, minimizing the risk of hematoma formation.

Later, heat therapy is beneficial in managing post-op bruising by – stimulating tissue and blood flow, breaking down bruising discoloration. Heat therapy comforts recovering skin and muscle tissues, reducing aches and pains. This reusable Cold/Hot Breast Compress provides hours of relief.

Is a “Mommy Makeover” right for me?

“We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own To Do list

-Michelle Obama

You want to be a good Mom, to have a Happy and Healthy Family.  You put others first and you haven’t focused on yourself in quite some time.  Child Birth and Breast Feeding have left loose skin and sagging breasts and your body misshapen. To take steps to pursue a fresh outlook and feel younger is not self-centered or vain. Because you are so important to your family, having a positive self image benefits not only you, but it can also improve your interactions with loved ones. You may be Mom, but never forget self.

Mommy Makeovers restore the body and remove stretch marks.  The procedure provides improved self esteem and more positive body image via Breast and Tummy Rejuvenation. Preformed simultaneously, under general anesthesia, the Mommy makeover is best performed after your child bearing years.  If you choose to have another child afterwards, some benefits of surgery may be lost.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

After childbirth, many women through diet and exercise are able to lose the redistributed “Baby weight” and regain their pre pregnancy bodies.  Others struggle with a post partum body which is not responding to exercise, stretched skin, or scarring and they want to do something about it.

The Mommy Makeover addresses those areas most often affected. The degree, and combination of procedures are specific to the individual and often performed at the same time. A combination of the following may be scheduled:

Breast:

Breast reduction—excess skin is removed and breast tissue is sculpted into a smaller, more flattering shape.

Breast lift—excess skin is removed and nipples lifted; breasts appear fuller and more youthful.

Breast augmentation with or without a lift—breast implants (silicone or saline) are surgically inserted underneath your breast tissue and occasionally your bench press muscle.

Tummy:

Liposuction—removes excess fat on the abdomen. This is a good option for women with no excess skin and very few or no stretch marks.

Abdominoplasty–   removes excess skin and tightens weakened and stretched abdominal muscles.

It is not only the 20 to 39 year old woman who may consider this option,  Mothers of college age youngsters may find themselves with the time and money to do something special for themselves. The same cluster of physical issues that may have bothered them for years can be addressed.

Pros and Cons

Pros:

Recovery Time- Since a mommy makeover combines a few different procedures at the same time, it allows you to recover from all the procedures at the same time.

Individuality-  Your mommy makeover is custom designed for you and your body, allowing you to choose the procedures that are best for you to accomplish your goals.

Better Skin– Your stretch marks and other skin conditions will be drastically reduced to provide you with the smooth, pre-pregnancy skin you want.

Improved Self-Image- The biggest benefit of a mommy makeover is the change it can produce in a woman’s life and in her opinion of herself.

Cons:

Even with the multiple procedures involved with a Mommy Makeover surgery, serious risks are rare.

Statistics- Any surgery has risks and the death rate from liposuction is reported to be anywhere from 1 in 5,000 to 1 in 50,000. Since EACH one of these operations has a set of complications, the complications POTENTIALLY encountered would depend on the EXACT set of operations you would be having.
