Mommy Makeover

What is a Mommy Makeover?

One of the most rewarding experiences any woman can ever have is that of giving birth. However, this can take the toll on the mother’s body, and with this, there can come a lack of self-esteem or their confidence is dented.

A mommy makeover helps to restore the body back to its former glory as it was before pregnancy. The most frequent areas which are affected will be the abdomen, waist, buttocks, breast lifts or augmentation, and in some cases labiaplasty.

With this in mind, there is not one procedure, and a mommy makeover will consist of a multitude of procedures depending on the extent the new mother wishes to go.

Before a Mommy Makeover

First Consultation

Dr. Z will hold an initial consultation where many things will be discussed. The first things he will wish to determine are the new mother is in good medical health, have finished with their childbearing and they have realistic expectations of what a mommy makeover can do for them.

Even with some of the procedures being the same as a standalone surgical procedure, Dr. Zuriarrain will conduct a thorough physical examination. This includes breasts, abdomen, buttocks, and or the genitalia.

This will be to determine skin thickness, fatty deposits, skin quality and the natural shapes and sizes of these areas. Once there have been pictures taken of the areas of concern, the options that are available or required will be discussed.

Questions will be asked of any current or past medication, herbal supplements, tobacco or alcohol consumption, and even if there are any recreational drugs used.

Mothers may feel shy talking about some things, especially about the intimate parts of their body. Dr. Zuriarrain works hard to make all patients feel at ease during their consultation.


Risks Involved with a Mommy Makeover

Just like any other procedures, which involve plastic surgery, there are some risks. Dr. Zuriarrain is well aware of these. He will explain all these to any candidate who visits his Miami, FL clinic for a mommy makeover.

These can comprise infection, bleeding, loss of sensation in the nipples, the inability to breast feed, the recurring of loose skin and contour deformity among others. Every effort is made to minimize these, as is the care to prevent any complications arising during the procedure.

Mommy Makeover Procedures

No surgical procedure will be the same for any two women when having a mommy makeover. The finer details and the steps of the procedure will be determined by the outcome of the prior consultations with Dr. Zuriarrain.

Depending on the degree of surgery, and areas covered. These can last between one to five hours. Any of the following may be performed during this time.

  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Buttock augmentation
  • Liposuction
  • Labiaplasty

Mommy Makeover Recovery and Results

Levels of pain and discomfort will vary depending on what procedures have been carried out in the mommy makeover. Patients can manage these with subscribed painkillers.

Patients may find drainage tubes remain in place for between 4 to 10 days. This is patient dependent and are there to drain excess fluids and blood. In the case of any breast surgery, soft supporting bras will be a requirement.

Because there can be more than one procedure, it is recommended another adult remains with the patient for the first 24-hours after their procedure.

Over the following few weeks, there will be visits to the clinic to make sure the healing is progressing as expected.

Results may only be visible after a couple of months following the mommy makeover. This allows any implants time to settle, and scar lines to fade. After this, there may be some signs of the incisions, yet most mothers feel these are a good trade-off against their boost in self-confidence.
