Mommy Makeover Surgery
in Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville Arkansas
A mommy makeover is one of the most customizable procedures on the market today. This procedure involves a combination of cosmetic surgeries to restore your pre-pregnancy body.
Pregnancy can have dramatic effects on a woman’s physique, including deflated, sagging, or asymmetrical breasts or excess sagging skin on the abdomen. Depending on your specific cosmetic concerns, a mommy makeover can address your problem areas in a successful, all-in-one procedure.
Reasons to Consider Mommy Makeover Surgery
- If pregnancy or breastfeeding has affected the size, position, or shape of your breasts.
- If your sagging tummy and stretch marks cause emotional discomfort.
- If you have stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to traditional diet and exercise.
What procedures are generally involved with a Mommy Makeover?
Some of the most common procedures involved during a mommy makeover are breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, liposuction, or tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). These cosmetic surgeries can help correct all the changes your body went through during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
How will Dr. Taylor evaluate me for Mommy Makeover?
During your initial consultation, be prepared to disclose your complete medical history, since this will ensure a positive surgery result. It is vital to be completely honest and provide full information.
Dr. Taylor will assess the amount of loose skin, the quality of your skin, the amount of excess fat, and the condition of your abdominal muscles. He will listen to your goals and evaluate your natural anatomy to determine which procedures will benefit you the most.
What can I expect with Mommy Makeover surgery?
Mommy makeovers are performed in our state-of-the-art, fully accredited, on-site surgery center by Dr. Taylor. Since this is a highly customizable procedure, each patient experience will vary. In most cases, general anesthesia will be administered so you are asleep through the surgery.
After surgery is complete, you will be taken to a recovery room where you will be further monitored. In most cases, small drain tubes will help avoid fluid buildup and you will be wrapped in gauze for extra support and to minimize swelling.
How long is recovery from Mommy Makeover?
Again, depending on your specific procedures chosen, recovery times will vary. Since you are undergoing multiple procedures at once, recovery generally lasts from one to two months. Dr. Taylor will provide more information about recovery instructions and times during your consultation and after your procedure.
How long will the results last?
Results from a mommy makeover are immediate and will continue to improve up to three months after surgery, as the swelling decreases. It is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine for long-lasting results. Unless you become pregnant, gain a significant amount of weight, or undergo other lifestyle changes, your results will last for many years.
A mommy makeover is a life-changing procedure for many women. It restores their pre-pregnancy body with the ease of one cosmetic surgery. Contact Robert Taylor Plastic Surgery today to schedule your initial consultation.
