As popular as Mommy Makeover procedures have become, it’s surprising that some patients still aren’t aware of the wide range of options they have for customizing their results. I use advanced techniques for procedures such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction at my Toronto practice, and I adjust these methods to address the most common effects of pregnancy on the body.
Here are 3 questions I commonly hear from Mommy Makeover patients, followed by my brief answers:
- Who is a candidate?
Whether you’re interested in a head-to-toe makeover or you simply want to combine minimal liposuction with a breast enhancement procedure, candidacy primarily depends on your overall health, body type, and expectations for surgery.
- What procedures are included?
One of the benefits of having a Mommy Makeover is the ability to create a custom treatment plan based on your exact needs. The most common procedures include liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and breast lift, but other options can be included, as well.
- How long is recovery?
The recovery time depends on the procedures you choose and the extent of those procedures. On average, patients are able to return to work within 2 to 4 weeks and can resume more strenuous activities such as exercising within 4 to 6 weeks of surgery.
