Mommy Makeover

Print This Page

During pregnancy the vertical "six pack" abdominal muscles are stretched apart, and for many women, no amount of crunches after pregnancy will restore the abdomen's muscle tone to its original condition. Also, the breasts often become stretched during pregnancy and breastfeeding, which can result in persistent laxity after weight is lost. Repeated pregnancies and breastfeeding can result in loss of breast volume in some women. Dr. Michael J. Weinberg can help reverse these effects with Mommy Makeover surgery in Toronto and Mississauga. This personalized combination of plastic surgery procedures can help you feel great about your appearance and might even renew your self-confidence.

The term "Mommy Makeover" was coined by plastic surgeons in the United States to describe this customized combination of surgical procedures aimed at addressing the specific concerns of women who have had children. Highly experienced in breast surgery and body contouring, Dr. Michael J. Weinberg was one of the first Royal College Certified plastic surgeons in Canada to offer women who visit him in Toronto and Mississauga the Mommy Makeover procedure. Now, the Mommy Makeover is among the fastest growing trends in cosmetic surgery.

Mommy Makeover Procedure

Dr. Weinberg is qualified to offer these tailor-made combination procedures to help restore you to your pre-pregnancy self. New surgical techniques like the "no drains" method of tummy tuck, help reduce surgical and anesthesia time. Less operative time correlates with fewer surgical complications. Other factors that help his Mommy Makeover patients experience easier recovery periods include new methods of using preoperative and intraoperative pain medication. Most often Mommy Makeovers consist of all or some of the following procedures:

The advantage to having a combination surgery is that you only need one surgical visit as well as one recovery instead of 2 or 3. It is also more affordable than having 3 or 4 separate procedures, and patients wind up with the results they really want. Mommy Makeovers can be performed anywhere from 8 months to many years after pregnancy. Depending on which procedures are appropriate for you, a Mommy Makeover takes about 4 hours to perform. As with all surgical procedures, there are possible complications that can occur with mommy makeover. Potential complications specific to your surgery will be discussed in detail at your consultation. For a discussion of general risks of surgery, review Dr. Weinberg's Your First Visit page.
