Mommy Makeover (Upper Body Contouring)
At Orlando Health Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery Institute, we want to help you look and feel your best. Our mommy makeover procedures can help restore the appearance you had before having children. Our compassionate and dedicated surgeons will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan and help guide you every step of the way.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Age, childbirth, and fluctuations in weight can change your body over time. We can help you feel like your old self again with a set of cosmetic procedures that can help restore your appearance. A mommy makeover includes both breast and abdominal rejuvenation — completed at the same time.
A mommy makeover may:
- Improve the size and shape of your breasts
- Improve breast symmetry
- Fix sagging breasts
- Repair stretched or large nipples
- Remove extra skin from the abdomen
- Remove fat under the skin
Who Is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
You are a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you are:
- Generally in good health
- Done having children
- Managing any underlying health conditions well, such as diabetes, with medications and lifestyle changes
- Close to your ideal body weight
- Not pregnant or breastfeeding at the time of the surgery
- Able to arrange care for small children that still need to be picked up (you won't be able to lift objects after surgery for several weeks)
Our Surgical Procedures
A mommy makeover typically includes:
- A breast lift, reduction or augmentation
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
By combining these procedures into one surgery, it helps save you time and money.
At Orlando Health Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery Institute, we offer breast augmentation with implants (saline or silicone) or fat transfer. Fat transfer is gaining popularity as women prefer to avoid foreign material. During the fat transfer procedure, we use the fat from liposuction to enhance your breasts instead of implants. The benefits of doing a fat transfer procedure are more natural looking breasts and no risk of your body rejecting or having an allergic reaction to implants.
We also offer the drainless tummy tuck. This involves sealing off any openings left during surgery with more sutures (stitches) rather than using drains that stay in place for weeks. This helps make your recovery easier and faster than typical abdominoplasty surgery.
Supporting Your Recovery
Our multidisciplinary team will help you understand and plan for your recovery after surgery. You should expect to be out of work for two to three weeks. You will also have to avoid strenuous activities for six weeks.
Our team can help you purchase garments to reduce swelling following surgery. We will set up regular appointments after your surgery to check on your recovery process.
