What is a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is not one procedure, but a combination of different procedures including but not limited to Breast Lift, Tummy Tuck, and Body Contouring. Each patient’s specific combination will be chosen to bring their body back to its pre-pregnancy appearance – or sometimes even more improved.
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts have often lost volume and shape. The abdomen has excess skin and sagging muscle tissue, and many areas of the body have excess fat. The mommy makeover combines procedures designed to address these issues. The exact combination will be chosen during a consultation with Dr. Fred Wilder.
The best candidates for a mommy makeover are patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their body following pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
It can be performed once breastfeeding is complete and the patient’s weight has fully stabilized, or it can be performed years after childbirth. Dr. Wilder recommends waiting until the patient is done having children to proceed with the Mommy Makeover.
Ideal candidates are non-smokers and are in good overall health. Smoking reduces skin health and elasticity, negatively affecting the healing process after a mommy makeover and increasing risk of complications.
At the start of a mommy makeover, general anesthesia will be administered to ensure patient comfort for the duration of the surgical session. Once it has taken effect, Dr. Wilder will make incisions, then perform the chosen procedures. Finally, incisions will be closed with the help of surgical sutures.
After a mommy makeover, patients must follow Dr. Wilder’s post-surgical care instructions closely in order to avoid prolonging the recovery process. Each patient’s exact process is different, since every mommy makeover is different.
Generally, swelling and bruising will be present in the targeted areas for a time. These will fade, and it will be best to control them with the help of post-surgical elastic garments and ice packs. Patients will need to take time off from work and must avoid physically strenuous activities like sports and heavy exercise.
