What is the procedure of mommy makeover?
As Mommy makeover includes more than one procedure so lets explain it in certain steps.
First step is to consult with your plastic surgeon and decide on the procedures you will undergo. Dr ATUL is an experienced plastic surgeon, During initial consultation you can discussed procedure, location, anesthesia, recovery, and cost. A clear understanding of these factors will help you to make a more informed decision.
During a VASER Tummy Tuck, specific generated sound waves are passed through the body skin to liquefy fat which is then removed gently using a suction.
A tummy tuck may narrow your waist, but not your hips. Vaser Liposuction can improve the contour of flanks or hips. VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under local anaesthetic. A small probe is used to transmit the ultrasound energy and liquefy fat cells prior to removal through a gentle suction process. It is a less invasive procedure than traditional Liposuction.
You will receive either a general anesthetic or a combination of local anesthesia and intravenous sedation.
Mastopexy incisions vary, depending on the amount of excess skin, the position of your nipples, your preference, and your surgeon’s suggestions.
After making the incisions, the surgeon repositions and reshapes the breast tissue and surgically removes excess skin.Then the nipple and areola are repositioned to a more youthful height. If needed, the size of the areola can be reduced by excising skin around the perimeter.Then tighten the remaining skin while closing the incisions will be done. The sutures are layered deep within the breast tissue to support the newly-shaped breasts and may use skin adhesives and/or surgical tape to help close and support the skin.
An incisions will be make on your breasts and surgically remove excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin. Depending on your surgeon’s recommendation, you may have intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.After deciding what is the best incision option for you, your surgeon will make the incision, reposition the nipple , and reduce the areola by excising skin at the perimeter,then bring the incisions together to reshape the now smaller breast. The sutures are layered within the breast tissue to create and support the newly-shaped breasts, and then the skin is closed with sutures, skin adhesives, and/or surgical tape.Your breasts will be wrapped in special gauze. You may be required to wear a surgical bra.
Hydration is very important before and after surgery for safe recovery and critical outcomes.
Be sure to have a healthy diet with a variety of vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants.
Stop smoking at least six weeks before undergoing surgery to promote better healing.
Avoid taking aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and vitamins/homeopathic regimens that can increase bleeding.
What can I expect on the day of mommy makeover surgery?
For your safety during the surgery, various monitors will be used to check your heart, blood pressure, pulse, and the amount of oxygen circulating in your blood.
Dr ATUL will follow the surgical plan discussed with you before surgery.After surgery, you will be taken into a recovery area where you will continue to be closely monitored.You may go home on the day of surgery.
When the anesthesia wears off, you may have some pain. If the pain is extreme or lasts long, contact the clinic. You will also have some swelling after the surgery. In some cases, this swelling will remain for weeks or even months.
The first week will be the worst, and you will still feel like you are recovering for about two to three weeks. After that, you’ll probably be feeling pretty well, but you will not be able to do any heavy lifting such as picking up your children for six weeks.
Recovery from Mommy Makeover
The recovery period is significant and can be intense the first few days medications can control pain and discomfort, so that you can move about and sleep as needed.Full recovery is about six weeks. You should be up and walking slowly the day after surgery.By the end of the first week, you should be walking around the house frequently, but you are still unable to drive.Swelling should subside within five weeks, and the results are apparent within three months.
How long the results would last?
Barring another pregnancy or significant weight gain, your results should be long lasting, though plastic surgery cannot stop you from normal aging. However, breast implants are not permanent and there will likely come a time when you will have to replace them.
All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. But the success rate of this procedure is high.
Some of the potential complications of all surgeries are:
- Adverse reaction to anesthesia
- Hematoma or seroma (an accumulation of blood or fluid under the skin that may require removal)
- Infection and bleeding
- Changes in skin sensation
- Allergic reactions
- Damage to underlying structures
