Understanding Mommy Makeover Surgery

Rejuvenating your body with a Mommy Makeover can do wonders for renewing your energy and confidence. A combination of multiple cosmetic procedures, a Mommy Makeover often includes a tummy tuck and breast rejuvenation, along with liposuction to put the finishing touches on your refreshed look. Prior to surgery, you and Dr. Lepore will discuss your individual goals, and your Mommy Makeover will be designed to address your needs, enhancing and restoring your body in the areas where it needs it most.

The typical candidate for a Mommy Makeover is a woman who has experienced the weight fluctuation, skin and muscle stretching, and breast changes that come with pregnancy and breastfeeding.

However, Mommy Makeovers aren't just for moms. If you have experienced a substantial weight loss, you may also be left with flat, sagging breasts and loose skin around your abdomen, as well as a few stubborn trouble spots that plague you no matter how much you exercise.

Mommy Makeover candidates should be in good overall health and have reasonable expectations about what cosmetic surgery can do.

What to Expect

A Mommy Makeover can benefit you because multiple cosmetic procedures are combined into a single surgical experience. This prevents the need for repeated anesthesia, reduces recovery time, and requires less time away from work and your active life as a mom. Instead of enhancing your physical appearance one step at a time, the renewal of your body is completed all at once.

Dr. Lepore can customize your Mommy Makeover to fit your individual needs. He evaluates any concerns you have about your body's appearance, and together you discuss your options and determine which procedures would produce the most complete, balanced, and beautiful results.

Although your Mommy Makeover can be fully customized, most women undergoing the procedure have at least 2 of the following to reshape the areas of the body that are most affected by pregnancy:

  • A tummy tuck is especially popular with women who have been pregnant because it improves multiple layers of the abdomen. During this procedure, Dr. Lepore expertly tightens loose, weakened, or displaced abdominal muscles before removing localized fat deposits and sagging, excess skin. He can even remove stretch marks and C-section scars in some cases. The result is a smoother, tighter, stronger abdomen that improves how you look and feel in your favorite outfits.
  • A breast augmentation with or without a breast lift can improve the breasts' size, position, or both. Pregnancy and breastfeeding typically cause the breasts to swell, and after weaning, they lose volume once again. This often leaves the breasts with a saggy, "deflated" appearance – and they may even be smaller than they were pre-baby. Breast augmentation adds soft, natural-looking volume to the breasts, while a lift raises and repositions them to sit higher on the chest. The 2 procedures can be performed at once for a more dramatic improvement.
  • Liposuction often puts the "finishing touches" on a Mommy Makeover, touching up and refining areas such as the thighs, waist, upper arms, and even below the chin. Because it uses such small incisions, liposuction leaves behind very discreet scars. It's an excellent solution for areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Some women also choose to include labiaplasty or facial rejuvenation surgery in their Mommy Makeovers. The choices are really up to you and what you want to achieve.

Your Procedure

Your New Look

Although the details of your recuperation will vary based on the specifics of your surgery, Dr. Lepore uses careful techniques during each procedure to minimize bruising, swelling, and overall recovery time. The typical Mommy Makeover patient in San Jose can usually return to work and other social activities after about 2 weeks. However, Dr. Lepore instructs patients to avoid vigorous activity such as exercise for several more weeks. During your consultation and subsequent preoperative appointments, Dr. Lepore gives you a better understanding of what you can anticipate during your recuperation.

You ultimate results will also vary depending on the specific procedures your Mommy Makeover includes. With a typical Mommy Makeover, you will enjoy significant improvement in the shape and firmness of your breasts, your new, trim shape can be maintained through reasonable diet and exercise, and you will likely feel more confident and refreshed.
