What a Mommy Makeover Can Achieve:
Mommy Makeover Options
The beauty of the Mommy Makeover is that it can be tailored to a patient’s unique needs and goals. Dr. Green will use his artistic eye to evaluate your specific needs during your consultation and determine which Mommy Makeover options will give you the personalized, stunning results you want.
Breast augmentation restores breast volume lost due to pregnancy and nursing. Patients with deflated or naturally small breasts can benefit from breast augmentation.
Patients can enjoy a more symmetrical bustline with breast augmentation. Implant sizing is entirely customizable, giving patients balanced and proportionate breasts.
Breast implants create a more pleasing and youthful breast shape. Patients can choose from several different implant profiles to achieve the breast projection they desire.
A doughnut lift is ideal for patients with mild breast ptosis. This technique involves two concentric incisions around each areola.
A lollipop lift is ideal for patients with moderate breast ptosis. This technique involves one incision that encircles each areola and another that follows down the breasts to the natural crease.
An anchor lift is ideal for patients with severe breast ptosis. This technique involves three incisions. The first incision encircles each areola, the second extends down the breasts to the natural crease, and the third runs along the inframammary fold.
Pregnancy typically results in a separation of the abdominal muscles called diastasis recti. A tummy tuck tightens these compromised tissues, producing a firmer, stronger core.
Loose, excess skin around the midsection is a common outcome of pregnancy. Patients can recover their smooth, pre-baby stomach by undergoing tummy tuck surgery.
Due to weight gain and hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy, women often accumulate fat deposits around their midsection. Stubborn, unwanted belly fat can be removed during a tummy tuck.
Mommy Makeover Concerns
Patients can expect some soreness, swelling, and bruising following their Mommy Makeover procedure. Although patients may wish to remain in repose following their surgery, they are encouraged to start walking as soon as possible to promote healing and prevent blood clots. Vigorous activities should be postponed until the patient receives approval from the surgeon, which is usually at approximately four weeks. Most discomfort dissipates after a few days, and patients may return to work after two weeks.
Because Dr. Green places the incisions in discreet locations, any scars that result from a Mommy Makeover can be hidden with clothing or a bathing suit. Over time, any visible scarring is likely to fade.
The cost of a Mommy Makeover depends greatly on several factors including (but not limited to) procedures used, the extent of correction, and anesthesia fees. At your consultation appointment, Dr. Green’s financial coordinator will be able to calculate the costs for your unique surgery.
To manage any pain-related discomfort, patients may take oral pain relievers as recommended by Dr. Green.

How long does a Mommy Makeover surgery take?
