Procedure Details

The Mommy Makeover is designed for women who are looking to regain their figure after going through childbirth and breastfeeding. A Mommy Makeover provides body contouring to help regain a fit and youthful look after going through rigorous changes related to pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. Procedures can be done on the breasts, tummy and other areas where you want to remove unwanted fat and skin.

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of surgical and non-surgical treatments that lead to restoration and rejuvenation of a female’s figure.

The surgical treatments at SpaMedica Toronto generally include:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift Surgery
  • Mini Tummy Tuck
  • Tummy Tuck
  • SmartLipo™
  • BodyTite™

Depending upon the postpartum degenerative changes that have occurred, such as advanced cellulite of the buttock, posterior, outer and anterior thigh, non-surgical cellulite reduction treatments and surgical cellulite treatments using the Cellulaze™ and CelluTite™, may also be deployed.

The non-surgical components of a Mommy Makeover include:

  • Removal of unwanted hair
  • Stretch mark reduction
  • Non-surgical liposuction program
  • UltraShape®
  • BodyFx™
  • Zeltiq®
  • Zerona™

With modern anesthetic techniques, most Mommy Makeovers can be performed under IV sedation and less invasive anesthetic techniques.  Most procedures last three to four hours or less and generally the recovery times are measured in one to two weeks.

 

After Care Instructions and expectations

Most patients require approximately one to two weeks of recovery time, especially if the combination of procedures include breast implants and breast augmentation surgery combined with high tech modern liposuction, such as Bodytite™ and Smartlipo™ and no actual tummy tuck is needed.

Mommy Makeovers with combined full tummy tuck surgery with muscle tummy tightening and repair with breast augmentation performed both under the under the muscle and combined with  liposuction surgery, will usually  require two to three weeks before return to low-impact activities of daily living, such as work and routine childcare and housework.

However, 1-3 weeks of recovery following a Mommy Makeover does not mean that patients are immobile.  At SpaMedica, we believe in early ambulation and movement, even on the first day and most patients are kept overnight for the safest possible period of observation and also to mobilize patients and get them ambulatory.During that two-week recovery period, you will be seen approximately three to four more times at SpaMedica, where your dressings will be changed, the progress of your surgical healing assessed and recommendations made.  

The recovery period is also a time where you will wear a soft, supportive bra for the breast augmentation and implants, a liposuction body contouring garment for your tummy tuck and liposuction procedures.  This garment will help shrink wrap your skin, ensuring the best possible skin contour and shape.

There may be small drains that are also deployed under your skin following your abdominal skin tightening treatment, be it BodyTite™, SmartLipo™ advanced liposuction surgery or Mini or Standard tummy tuck surgery.  These drain are placed under the skin in the operative pocket will help facilitate removal of lymphatic fluid until your own lymphatic system can take over.  

Generally, at the end of 10 to 14 days, all tummy drains are removed.  Small drains are also used in your breast augmentation surgery to greatly reduce the early swelling and turgid distension that can be associated with breast augment surgery and these are usually removed on day three.

Maintenance required

For the surgical corrections of the Mommy Makeover, including breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, BodyTite™ or SmartLipo™, there is no specific maintenance required. However, other components of the non-surgical Mommy Makeover, including skin tightening treatments, stretch mark reduction treatments, cellulite reduction treatments and laser hair removal may require a certain degree of maintenance.

FAQ

  • Is the Mommy Makeover painful?

    Depending on the type of tummy correction required, muscle tightening or not, and the type of breast augment and breast implant or lift technique deployed, under the muscle or above, will determine the amount of pain and discomfort. In general, however, women who have undergone childbirth find Mommy Makeover surgery far less painful and just as pleasing as it is a lifelong, rewarding adventure.

  • How long will the results of my Mommy Makeover last?

    The results of your procedure should last the rest of your life.  The modern liposuction techniques will permanently remove unwanted post baby fat that you are unable to shed through diet and exercise, typically off the hips, flanks, outer/inner thighs and sometimes the inner knees and arms.

    As long as you exhibit self-control, moderate exercise and weight maintenance, the improvements will be life long.  The results of your breast augmentation and/or breast lift surgery will also be lifelong, as modern cohesive gel breast implants are warrantied now for life.
