Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover - Downey Plastic SurgeryA mommy makeover is a blanket term used for a group of procedures that women choose to undergo after childbearing. As a mother of twins, Dr. Cara Downey has focused a large part of her practice on restoring the female figure after pregnancy. Her practice offers a Mommy Makeover Procedure Package which combines a tummy tuck procedure and breast rejuvenation. Additional procedures that patients opt to have performed at the same time are liposuction, and labiaplasty.

While these surgeries can be performed separately by talented plastic surgeons, effectively combining them into the mommy makeover procedure takes a highly talented and experienced plastic surgeon like our very own. All procedures are performed by Dr. Downey herself, which include the following:

Results May Vary

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty):

The Tummy Tuck procedure is the primary element in a mommy makeover surgery. It covers everything from the repair of separated abdominal muscles, elimination of excess fat, improvement of belly button appearance, and stretch mark removal.

Breast Rejuvenation:

The breast rejuvenation portion of the makeover surgeries usually combines a Breast Lift with Breast Augmentation or Breast Reduction. An initial consultation with each patient is scheduled to decide on the combination of procedures they will undergo and what will be most beneficial for their expectations.

Who is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Many women who have experienced one or more pregnancies know the physical toll childbearing has on their body, face and self-esteem. Women who want to continue having children after their first should postpone the procedures until they have completed all childbearing. The birth of a child is an amazing part of life, but can leave women upset with the changes their bodies go through. Our hope is to help improve her patients overall self-esteem by helping restore their female figure.

Recovering from the Procedure

After a mommy makeover procedure, the patient will generally need 4-6 weeks for recovering. During the first 24 hours, it will most likely be recommended by your doctor to stay in the hospital. Once you are dismissed, be sure to have a caretaker on call for the next 72 hours at your house. Your caretaker can be a family member or friend, or you can schedule to have a nurse. After the recovery period, you can gradually incorporate exercise into your daily routine. If you have any questions or concerns during the healing process, contact Dr. Downey.
