Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is any procedure that combines some element of breast enhancement and abdominal contouring. Possible tummy procedures could include: abdominoplasty with or without liposuction, liposuction alone, or mini abdominoplasty with or without liposuction. For breast contouring, procedures include augmentation, augmentation with mastopexy, mastopexy alone, or reduction. Both silicone and saline implants can be used. These cases can be fairly lengthy, and often times an overnight hospital hospital stay is recommended. Candidates for this surgery are most often women who have had multiple pregnancies, but massive weight loss patients also comprise a large part of Dr. Pautler’s mommy makeover population. Those with extremely stretchy tissues in the breast and abdominal areas may benefit from the addition of SERI® surgical scaffold to reinforce weak tissues, such as in the “internal bra” procedure. Patients ought to be healthy, and fairly close to their ideal weight for their height and body build. Recovering from both breast and body procedures at once to minimize time away from family and work is one of the main benefits of a mommy makeover.
