Being a mother is undeniably the most important and giving role a person can take on. Although we know this responsibility can be incredibly fulfilling, it’s often easy to disregard your personal desires along the way. Board-certified plastic surgeon Jon Paul Trevisani, MD and our team at The Aesthetic Surgery Centre offers a revitalizing treatment plan called a Mommy Makeover to help patients address the aesthetic changes brought on during pregnancy while they take on the meaningful challenge of motherhood.
Pregnancy, nursing, weight loss/gain, and the natural aging process can cause a range of changes to your face, breasts, and body. A Mommy Makeover combines different procedures to give you a more refreshed look and help you restore your pre-baby body. During a personal plastic surgery consultation with Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, you will be able to decide the best ways to help you achieve the physical improvements you desire. Breast enhancement, fat removal, skin tightening, and facial rejuvenation can all be part of a Mommy Makeover depending on your individual concerns.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a treatment plan designed to achieve multiple aesthetic goals at once through a tailored combination of procedures. Based on which areas of the face and body you would like to improve, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani develops a personalized surgical plan to bring your desired physique to the surface. By incorporating your procedures-of-interest into one all-encompassing treatment plan, patients can minimize the amount of downtime required and achieve their cosmetic goals faster than pursuing each surgery individually. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will fully inform you of the benefits, limitations, and risks of a Mommy Makeover during your consultation.
Who is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
It’s important for patients considering a Mommy Makeover to be in good health with no uncontrolled medical conditions that may affect the healing process. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will ask you about your goals and review your medical history to help you determine whether a Mommy Makeover is right for you. Women who are interested in a Mommy Makeover should also:
- Want to undergo more than one surgical procedure
- Be at or near their ideal weight
- Wait at least six months after giving birth before undergoing surgery
In order to achieve the best possible outcome, patients should also maintain a positive outlook on surgery and realistic expectations of what a Mommy Makeover can achieve. While Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will help you understand the potential results, our before-and-after photos can also give you a good idea of the rejuvenation possible with a Mommy Makeover.
Mommy Makeover Treatment Options
A Mommy Makeover is typically a combination of breast surgery, a tummy tuck and/or liposuction, and facial rejuvenation. Explore all of your after-pregnancy cosmetic surgery options below, or by scheduling a personal consultation with Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani.
Breast augmentation is among the most frequently performed procedures in a Mommy Makeover due to its ability to restore shape to flat, elongated, or “deflated” breasts. During a breast augmentation, saline or silicone implants are placed to make the breasts appear larger, fuller, and firmer. This procedure can also enhance cleavage, volume, and the breasts’ overall contours.
A Mommy Makeover at our Orlando surgery center frequently includes breast lift surgery as a means of re-contouring the breasts, reducing sag, and even reducing the size of the areolas if necessary. Patients may also choose to further enhance breast firmness and volume by adding breast implants.
Tummy Tuck and Liposuction
A primary component of a Mommy Makeover is often abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery. This procedure removes skin and fat from the middle to lower abdomen, as well as tightens the abdominal muscles. The result of a tummy tuck is generally a sleeker appearance, more narrow waistline, and a firmer abdomen.
Fat removal can also be achieved by adding liposuction, which is another common option included in a Mommy Makeover. Liposuction can be another way to make your body look and feel toned, tight, and healthy. In addition to the traditional liposuction technique, ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) is also available.
A Mommy Makeover can also address signs of aging, stress, and exhaustion that may be brought on by pregnancy and giving birth. The face is usually the first region to exhibit the effects of sun exposure, gravity, and the stresses of everyday life, which are often magnified by the demands of motherhood. Both surgical and non-surgical options are available to renew the face at The Aesthetic Surgery Centre. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani offers surgical options including a facelift and eyelid surgery, as well as non-surgical choices and skin care products — some designed specifically for pre- and post-surgery patients.
Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
The many non-surgical approaches to revitalize the tone and texture of the skin often include injectable treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers like Radiesse® and Juvéderm®. You may also choose non-surgical laser procedures to remove hair, as well as to repair skin irregularities, wrinkles, and scarring. BioMedic® can help improve skin clarity and texture, evening the skin tone; Skin Fitness, ProCyte, and Medicalia® are also kincare formulas that have therapeutic properties to assist with your post-operative healing process. Natural and chemical facial peels, microdermabrasion, and other skincare products are also available for our Aesthetic Surgery Centre patients.
What is Recovery From a Mommy Makeover Like?
Each recovery period after a Mommy Makeover is unique and varies based on the details of your Mommy Makeover plan. For patients who received more extensive surgery, such as a tummy tuck or combination breast procedure, the healing process can take one to two weeks before it’s safe to return to your normal routine. Treatment options like liposuction or non-surgical facial rejuvenation may only require a few days of recovery. In either case, exercise should be avoided for at least four weeks or until Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani instructs otherwise. He will give you more detailed aftercare and recovery information specific to your treatment plan in person.
We recommend arranging for help with childcare and household responsibilities prior to surgery to help ensure your recovery proceeds as smoothly as possible. This can allow you to receive plenty of rest and heal properly after your Mommy Makeover, thereby accelerating your recovery.
