Are Multiple Procedures Safe During a Mommy Makeover?
One of the most commonly asked questions from mothers is: “Can multiple cosmetic surgery procedures be performed together safely?”
The answer is Yes! Not only is it safe, but also convenient.
A mommy makeover is a combined set of cosmetic procedures designed for women who want to improve certain areas of the body following pregnancy. Mommy makeovers can be a combination of many procedures, but usually include a variety of these:
- breast augmentation
- breast lift with or without implants
- a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
- and liposuction
Depending on your personal circumstances and surgical requirements, these procedures can typically be performed in a single surgery. As a general rule, surgery should not last longer than 6 hours. This is for the safety of both patient and physician.
The first step in planning for a mommy makeover is scheduling a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who is experienced in mommy makeover procedures. You’ll get a chance to discuss your medical history, desires for your new appearance, and whether single or multiple surgeries may be right for you.
The benefits of an all-inclusive mommy makeover are that you’ll only have to go through one recovery period, you may be able to reduce some costs by undergoing all the procedures at once, and to top it all off, you’ll get to see and enjoy the end results much sooner!
