What is usually involved in a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover typically involves procedures aimed at areas that are particularly hard-hit by pregnancy and childbirth. In most cases, a Mommy Makeover will include a breast augmentation and/or a breast lift as well as an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck. Liposuction is also often included to eliminate small, stubborn pockets of fat that have not responded to diet or exercise.
Is it safe to combine plastic surgery procedures?
Cosmetic surgeons often combine plastic surgery procedures, not only for Mommy Makeovers but also for facial procedures, such as when a facelift is combined with a neck lift or blepharoplasty. Combining procedures means you will only be sedated once, and will only have to be in the hospital once. This not only reduces the risks inherent with sedation, but also reduces the facility costs associated with major surgery.
