Mommy Makeover Procedure

When considering a mommy makeover procedure, you’re bound to have a few questions. Here are some questions that are commonly asked:
What is a mommy makeover?
A mommy makeover includes multiple surgeries that target areas that are particularly affected by pregnancy and childbirth. This procedure was designed to get you back in shape, make you feel confident, and leave you looking great after carrying a child or children.
Which problem areas can a mommy makeover correct?
A mommy makeover procedure can correct:
- Sagging breasts
- Stretch marks
- Excess skin
- Excess fat
You can opt for any or all procedures, depending on your preferences and your doctor’s recommendations. You can choose from a tummy tuck, liposuction, buttock lift, and several breast augmentation options. You could even choose to receive procedures, such as eyelid surgery and vaginal rejuvenation.
When is the right time for this procedure?
It is recommended to wait until you are officially done with having children before receiving a mommy makeover procedure. Wait until at least a few months after giving birth for several reasons to ensure that you have lost all baby weight for better results. It is also helpful to wait until you are finished breastfeeding; a breast lift may cause bleeding, which can be harmful to the baby.
How long does the procedure and recovery process take?
This all depends on the amount and type of surgeries that you plan to get. By booking a consultation with Dr. Heil, you can figure out which surgeries to pick and determine how long the procedures and recovery will take.
Are there any risks involved?
Some risks may be involved with any plastic surgery; however, Dr. Heil’s knowledge and commitment to patient care ensure that all procedures will be completed extremely carefully. Risks mays include bleeding, scarring, and infection.
How much will this cost?
This also depends on the combination of surgeries you choose. As you decide which procedures you would like, Dr. Heil will be able to give you an accurate estimate of the cost.

Mommy Makeover Combinations
Giving birth can leave the female figure with an excess of skin and fat. Part of a comprehensive post-pregnancy weight loss treatment for this includes the Obalon Balloon Weight Loss System and a tightening procedure such as a tummy tuck, which can serve to optimize the overall shape and contour of the body.
Pregnancy can also leave a woman with sagging breasts and stretch marks. Consequently, mommy makeovers often include a breast lift or augmentation to create a more aesthetically pleasing chest.
Augmentation of the buttocks is also useful in creating an integrated approach to reshaping the body post-pregnancy, decreasing irregularities and creating a smoother appearance.
Many other options are available to combine with the mommy makeover, such as liposuction or even vaginal rejuvenation to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy state.
