Okanagan Health Surgical Centre | Kelowna Breast Augmentation
If you are looking to rejuvenate your body’s appearance after pregnancy or weight loss, you may want to consider a customized mommy makeover procedure. Here’s everything you need to know about this cosmetic procedure and the incredible benefits it can provide. 

A 'mommy makeover' refers to a combination of cosmetic surgeries that can help women achieve the tone, shape, and body appearance they had before childbirth. It includes procedures such as breast augmentation and a tummy tuck. 

You may want to consider this treatment if you: 

  • Are unhappy with the shape and/or size of your breasts
  • Have loose abdominal skin 
  • Are feeling frustrated with stubborn fat deposits in the abdomen 
  • Are experiencing abdominal muscle separation

By combining breast surgery with certain body contouring procedures, a mommy makeover can truly transform your body and help you regain a more youthful appearance.

Top Benefits of Opting for a Mommy Makeover 

If you have multiple concerns following childbirth or weight loss that you’re hoping can be corrected with cosmetic surgery, combining two or more procedures is a great way to lower your costs and shorten your recovery time while achieving the amazing results you desire. 

A mommy makeover is a customizable surgery and most women typically opt to combine two or more of the following procedures: 

  • Abdominoplasty
  • Liposuction 
  • Breast augmentation 
  • Breast lift 
  • Breast augmentation mastopexy 

During a consultation with your plastic surgeon, he/she can assess your concerns and aesthetic goals and help develop a personalized mommy makeover treatment plan that works around your needs. 

4 SIGNS YOU’RE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A MOMMY MAKEOVER 

Some of the incredible benefits of opting for this combined surgery include: 

  1. Lower costs. When you opt for a mommy makeover, you’ll only have to pay any associated fees once. This includes the anesthesiologist, surgeon, and facility fees, so you’ll enjoy a lower overall expense for the same great results. 

  2. Shorter recovery period. One of the biggest benefits of a mommy makeover is that it combines a number of procedures into a single surgical session. For busy moms, this is absolutely crucial as it means you’ll only have one recovery period to schedule.

  3. Fewer risks. By undergoing one combined procedure instead of multiple ones, you’ll significantly lower your surgical risk. In addition to this, you’ll only have to undergo one round of anesthesia, which will decrease your risks associated with going under the medication.

  4. More dramatic results. Sometimes a combination surgery is recommended because some cosmetic procedures compliment others. For example, by combining a breast lift with a breast augmentation or a tummy tuck with breast surgery, you’ll be able to enjoy a more dramatic and comprehensive overall result. 

Are You Thinking About a Mommy Makeover? Here’s What You Must Consider First

When it comes to achieving the safest and most satisfactory results from your mommy makeover, you must fully understand what the procedure involves and what steps you must take before your surgery. 

Here are some things you must consider: 

  1. Make sure you are fully healed from childbirth. Before you can undergo a mommy makeover, you must make sure that you are fully recovered from childbirth. It usually takes around six months for your body to return to its natural form and shape. 

  2. Quit smoking first. Your plastic surgeon will not perform a mommy makeover on you if you are a smoker. This is because smoking affects circulation, delays healing times, and increases surgical risks. You must quit smoking for at least four to six weeks before undergoing this cosmetic surgery. 

  3. You must have a healthy routine. One of the first steps towards getting the best results from your mommy makeover is adopting a healthy lifestyle which includes following a nutritious diet and exercising regularly.
