About the Mommy Makeover

Plastic surgeons Drs. David G. Genecov and Carlos Raul Barceló in Dallas, TX consult with women frequently who desire to get their pre-pregnancy figure back. Even though childbirth is an exciting and amazing moment for a woman, it can alter the size and shape of various body parts, which can leave one feeling helpless to make realistic enhancements. The great news is that it is possible to get a tighter, slimmer figure thanks to the help of the mommy makeover procedure performed at Genecov Plastic Surgery Group. The mommy makeover procedure uses a blend of liposuction and skin removal to target the breasts (often with breast implants), tummy, and lower body. Essentially any area affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding can be corrected. In addition, nonsurgical procedures can be used to smooth surface irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation and blotchy skin, due to the quick fluctuation and stretching of the tissue and skin during pregnancy.

Ideal Candidates

The right candidates for a mommy makeover procedure are women who have completed pregnancy and childbirth and who have worked to attain a tighter figure through diet and exercise with little result. For so many new moms, surgery is necessary to get their pre-pregnancy shape. If you have completed childbearing but you are frustrated with the side effects left behind, such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted fat in the lower back, flanks, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could be an option for you. The goal is to regain your pre-pregnancy shape so you can resume life without worry.

Surgical Techniques

A mommy makeover is a custom treatment, tailored for patients based on the specific body areas to be addressed. Many procedures can be applied together; the most common treatments are breast lift with or without implants, abdominoplasty, and liposuction. All of these procedures are performed using general anesthesia and depending on the number of treatments, it could take around 3 – 7 hours. In addition, an overnight stay at the hospital may be required. It is common to incorporate nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, such as laser treatments and injectables, that can be applied to smooth facial lines and reduce surface irregularities.

 

What to Expect

The mommy makeover surgery is considered an invasive treatment and can address a vast section of the body. After a short period in the hospital, patients will start the recovery at home with rest and proper aftercare. This phase is generally a slow process. Standing upright will be hard the first couple of weeks, and a carefully followed home treatment protocol will be needed to ensure the incisions and sutures heal safely. The majority of women find the recovery phase can take up to 6 months. Even though the primary healing could take months, most patients are able to get back to a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Exercise should wait for approximately 2 months. Regardless of recovery time, this surgery can make an incredible impact for women, giving them their self-confidence once again.
