Is It Safe to Combine Procedures in a Mommy Makeover?

Featured Image

While pregnancy and childbirth are considered wonderful experiences, they can take a toll on your body. Many mothers struggle with deflated breasts and separated abdominal muscles. Even with diet and exercise, it can be difficult to address problem areas. Mommy makeover procedures are designed to reverse these changes so you can look and feel great in your body again.

A mommy makeover is a combination of different treatments, such as breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tuck surgery. However, many women are concerned about the safety of undergoing all these procedures at once. When you meet with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe, we can explain the process in full. Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery is happy to help women in Dallas, TX achieve their cosmetic goals.

What goes into mommy makeover procedures?

A mommy makeover is specifically designed to treat issues that have been caused by pregnancy and nursing. Although everyone reacts differently to pregnancy, sagging breasts, and excess skin on the abdomen are two of the most common areas of concern. Women also experience excess pockets of fat in the hips and thighs. Dr. Dauwe works closely with women to create custom body contouring procedures to restore or improve their pre-pregnancy figures.

Procedures that go into a mommy makeover can include:

  • Tummy tuck surgery

  • Liposuction

  • Breast lift

  • Breast augmentation

  • Fat transfer

The benefits of combining body contouring procedures

When combining multiple surgeries at once, your safety is our utmost concern. Mommy makeovers are generally considered safe as long as you have been cleared by a trusted and experienced plastic surgeon. Dr. Dauwe will review your health history to determine your candidacy during your initial consultation in Dallas. After you have been approved, you will find that there are a number of advantages to having several surgeries at once.

  • Saves time: when someone schedules surgeries separately, they need to take time off and arrange for childcare multiple times. With a mommy makeover, you can get the body you want in less time.

  • Saves money: multiple procedures require fees every time you visit a care facility. Mommy makeovers only require hospital and anesthesia fees once, saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

  • Less anesthesia: medical professionals agree that undergoing anesthesia multiple times could put you at risk for complications. It is much safer to have anesthesia only once during a mommy makeover.

What to expect during recovery

Following your breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tuck body contouring procedures, Dr. Dauwe will continue to be closely involved in your care. While recovery depends on your specific treatments, you can expect to feel swollen and inflamed over the following several weeks. You may receive a supportive bra or compression garment to feel more comfortable. With our detailed guidelines and instructions, we ensure you have the best and safest recovery.
