Many mothers are faced with the daunting task of making the impossible possible. This is true especially when it comes to getting back their pre-pregnancy bodies. No amount of dieting or exercise can improve stretch marks, sagging skin on the abdomen or breasts, or the stubborn fat that settles into the lower abdomen and other areas of the body. The Mommy Makeover procedure was designed with these concerns in mind.Schedule a consultation
is a combination of two or more cosmetic procedures performed at one time to address the common trouble zones of mothers of all ages: the breasts, abdomen, and areas of the body where fat is difficult to reduce.
Recovery time after the Mommy Makeover is similar to that of any one of the Mommy Makeover procedures if it were performed separately, which is about two weeks. The extent of the procedure, the ability of your body to heal, and the procedures you choose can all affect the length and ease of recovery. Getting plenty of rest and following Dr. Doezie’s postoperative instructions will accelerate the recovery process.
The cost for a Mommy Makeover will vary based on the geographical location of the surgery, the number of procedures combined, and on the surgeon who performs the surgery. The highest price does not always indicate the best quality of service. It is important to choose a surgeon who is experienced and highly skilled in the procedures you are choosing to truly get the most out of your investment. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the 2014 national average surgeon fees for the individual procedures involved in a Mommy Makeover were: breast augmentation: $3,708; breast lift: $4,377; tummy tuck: $5,493; and liposuction: $2,971. These fees do not include anesthesia fees, operating room costs, or the cost of pain medication.
As with any surgical procedure, there are scars associated with the Mommy Makeover. Dr. Doezie places incisions in the most inconspicuous places, such as within the natural folds and creases of the body. Scars from breast augmentation can be hidden within the natural breast crease, under the arm or along the line of pigmentation around the areola. Tummy tuck scars span the pelvis and can typically be hidden beneath most styles of underwear and swimsuits. Liposuction scars are short and will fade with time.
Patients can expect long-lasting results with this procedure. The Mommy Makeover does not stop aging nor does it prevent weight gain. Your skin will gradually age with time, but your body will always look better than it would have had you never gotten the procedure. The best candidates are finished having children, as childbirth will reverse the results. As you communicate your needs with Dr. Doezie, he will provide the treatment options that will provide you with the best results possible.
