What to expect after mommy makeover?
I really want to have this procedure done but am worried about what will happen during my recovery. Can a doctor please explain what I am in for if I decide to have the procedure? I understand that a mommy makeover could cost $10-15K and I can afford it, but I am concerned about how long it will take to recover from a procedure like this? I am a bit of a baby when it comes to surgery, hence why I haven't had this done yet. But I am so ready to get my body back that I had in my mid 20's.
A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures to treat your breasts, abdomen, love handles, and sometimes even the labia. Costs will depend on how many areas need to be treated, what exactly needs to be done, and how much time it would take. It's not the same surgery for every patient. In the right hands, it does amazing things!
We have a great article online on our site that you should take time to go through.
This is a personalized decision, so your best bet would be to have a consultation in person so you can understand the pros and cons, and for us to decide together what's best for you. At that time, you would receive exact fee estimates based on the options you've chosen and the time that it would take in the operating room to accomplish them.
We look forward to meeting you,

Most recoveries are complete by 4 weeks. By that I mean you are back to full activity. Most of my patients are able to return to work by 2 weeks, with some even earlier. In terms of discomfort, the local numbing medication that is provided at the time of surgery is helpful in mitigating your post operative pain. In addition, I do not use drains which aids in minimizing post operative discomfort.
I hope this helps. You should be able to find a great plastic surgeon in NY. If not, I have many patients who travel over 2 hours to be treated.
The recovery is generally 3-4 weeks. What that means is that you will need to take it easy over that time, not lying in bed but not doing any aggressive exercise or lifting. Unfortunately recovery is part of this surgery but it is pretty well tolerated among my patients. Hope this was helpful. Good Luck!
Mommy makeovers are very common in our office. The three components which generally make up a Mommy makeover include a tummy tuck, breast surgery( augmentation, breast lift or both), and buttock enhancement. Sometimes only 2 out of the 3 procedures are needed. You really need to consult with a Board Certified PS with lots of experience doing these procedures. At our center we are currently running a surgical special that can result in thousands of dollars of savings. We would be happy to meet with you.
