Mommy makeover is a major plastic surgery, usually involving multiple procedures. Therefore, the recovery process can take several days. The initial recovery period for this cosmetic surgery may range between two and three weeks, depending on a particular patient’s ability to heal and other factors.

As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Hisham Seify discusses the recovery period with his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities during the initial consultation.

Overall Recovery Process

The cosmetic surgeon will advise the patient to remain confined at home for the first 10 to 14 days, depending on how fast the healing occurs. Mild to moderate bruising and swelling should be expected during this period, which will subside to a large extent by the end of the third week. However, the complete resolution of swelling may take several months.

Patients should follow the surgeon’s guidelines for a safer and faster recovery. The plastic surgeon will also discuss the possible scarring with patient. For the first two months, the scars will appear red as the healing process occurs. Over the next several weeks, the redness of the scars will reduce and they will appear progressively thinner. Complete scar maturation may take more than a year.

Taking Care of the Kids

The patient should preferably have someone available to look after little kids at least for the first two to three weeks. The patient should avoid lifting the baby or any other significant weights in this period. If a family member is not available to take care of the children, the patient may consider hiring a temporary nanny or a babysitter.

Household Chores

For the first three to five days after the cosmetic surgery, the patient should avoid doing any significant home tasks. The patient will tire very quickly during this period, so she should be mentally prepared for this.

Elbows should be kept closer to the body, and movements above shoulder level should be avoided as that can irritate the breast muscles. Activities such as laundry and vacuum should be avoided for at least one month because these will involve bending at the waist or twisting the abdomen.

Office Job

The progress for each patient will differ in mommy makeover plastic surgery. On average, it may take about three months to recover full strength and energy levels. For office jobs that involve sitting, the patient can expect to be back to work within two weeks. However, if the job involves considerably physical movements and strain, it may take about a month to return to work.

Driving

Most patients will be able to begin driving in about a week to 10 days when they feel their reflexes and overall strength are adequate. However, if the patient is taking pain medications that can induce sleep, driving should be avoided.

Exercise and Fitness

The simple rule to follow is that if there is pain, the exercise must be stopped. Most patients can begin walking within a few hours after the surgery. Exercises such as brisk walking and using stationary bike can be started within a week.

Mommy Makeover Orange County | Newport BeachMommy makeover is a comprehensive plastic surgery procedure aimed at restoring the pre-pregnancy figure for a mother. As this cosmetic surgery can involve multiple procedures and is highly customizable, many new patients will have several queries and concerns about it.

Dr. Hisham Seify, a board certified plastic surgeon, will address the patient’s queries in detail during the initial consultation. Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and other areas have an opportunity to receive this procedure from him. Here is a set of frequently asked questions that should help new patients get answers to some of the basic issues related to a mommy makeover.

Who is a suitable candidate for a mommy makeover?

The cosmetic surgeon will evaluate the key areas of the body that may need surgical improvement, and assess other factors such as the patient’s general health, previous surgeries if any, and her personal aesthetic goals. Patients with a fair amount of skin elasticity will usually achieve the best outcomes with a mommy makeover procedure.

Why is a mommy makeover better than having the procedures one at a time?

In case of a mommy makeover plastic surgery, it becomes possible for a surgeon to create a comprehensive and cohesive treatment plan for best outcomes in a most conservative manner. Secondly, the patient is required to undergo the typical risks, pain and discomfort associated with a cosmetic surgery procedure only once. In individual procedures, general anesthesia will be required separately each time. Separate recovery periods will be involved, where as in a mommy makeover, multiple procedures will entail a single recovery period.

What is the right age for a mommy makeover?

It primarily depends on an individual patient when they would like to go through a mommy makeover. A plastic surgeon would usually recommend mothers in their twenties and thirties to opt for this surgery if they are keen for it. In these age groups, the skin is fairly elastic and the body resilience is very high for multiple procedures and quicker recovery.

How much time should a woman wait after childbirth to go for this procedure?

Dr. Seify would recommend this procedure to his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby locations only once their body is back to normal after childbirth. Once the body weight has stabilized and breastfeeding has stopped, the patient is usually in a position to undergo a mommy makeover. It may take about four to five months before a mom’s body returns to normal, with the exception of breastfeeding.

What is the average duration of a mommy makeover surgery?

The average duration of a mommy makeover procedure will depend on the number and extent of surgeries involved. For instance, if the patient needs to undergo breast augmentation, breast lift and tummy tuck together, the procedure may take about four to five hours in the operating room.

What is the estimated recovery period?

Recovery process may vary from one patient to another based on several factors. However, most patients will be ready to go back to a desk job within 10 to 14 days. Strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and vigorous exercises should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. This can include lifting heavy grocery bags or relocating your couch in the living room to more desirable location, for example.

Mommy Makeover: An Overview

A mommy makeover is probably the most comprehensive procedure in cosmetic surgery to improve the overall appearance. It is, in fact, a combination of two or more procedures, and not just a single procedure. A typical mommy makeover surgery involves tummy tuck, breast augmentation, liposuction, and body lift surgery. The procedure has gained popularity in recent years among moms who wish to regain their pre-pregnancy figure with the help of plastic surgery.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can result in significant changes in the physical appearance of the mom’s body. Breastfeeding may cause the breasts to sag or lose volume, while pregnancy may lead to stretching of abdominal muscles and skin. Many moms also gain excess abdominal fat and may develop excess fat pockets in other areas such as hips, thighs, arms, and calves. Dimpled skin or cellulite problem may also commonly occur in moms following a pregnancy.

All these conditions can be restored in a comprehensive manner with mommy makeover surgery. Dr. Seify provides this procedure to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and surrounding communities with very effective results. As an experienced plastic surgeon, he evaluates whether the patient is a magnificent and/or certainly an appropriate candidate for this comprehensive procedure before recommending a mommy makeover. Safety of the patient is an overriding concern in any surgical procedure, and the cosmetic surgeon will recommend multiple procedures only if the patient’s health condition allows for this treatment.

Since a mommy makeover involves a combination of two or more procedures, it can be difficult for a patient to imagine or visualize how her physical appearance will change with this procedure. Patients usually have a number of queries and doubts with regard to the procedure, and an experienced surgeon will make every effort to address the patient’s concerns and only then proceed with the next steps in the process. Some patients are unsure whether a mommy makeover is the most appropriate answer to their aesthetic needs and goals following a pregnancy.

One of the most effective tools available in cosmetic surgery in such situations is the before and after pictures. These are pictures of previous patients who have actually undergone a mommy makeover procedure and benefitted from it. These pictures are usually taken at different stages before and after the procedure. The full effects of various procedures under a mommy makeover may take several months to establish. Therefore, post-op pictures should include the pictures of the patient until the full effects are visible and swelling and bruising has subsided completely.

In some cases, the patient may be uncertain about which plastic surgery procedures to include as a part of a mommy makeover. The procedure can be customized to suit the unique needs of a particular patient. The surgeon may show before and after pictures belonging to different past patients who may have chosen different combinations of a mommy makeover. This can give a better idea to the patient about what kind of improvements to expect when different combinations of surgeries are applied as a part of a mommy makeover. The patient is in a position to make an informed decision in this manner.

Benefits of Before and After Pictures

The first key benefit of using before and after pictures is that the patient is placed in a better position to choose a particular surgery. Patients who are looking for comprehensive results may gain clearer insights about how a mommy makeover surgery can improve their overall appearance. A right combination of procedures can be included as a part of the mommy makeover to match with the patient’s anatomy and her unique aesthetic goals.

The second benefit is that the patient is able to have realistic expectations from the surgery. Before and after pictures leave no room for doubts and guesswork. With rational and realistic expectations, most patients are able to achieve a higher level of satisfaction from the results of a mommy makeover.

As an independent procedure, the cost of each surgery will be significantly different from each other. It depends on how intricate a procedure is and what kind of skills, efforts, time, and technologies may be involved in the procedure.

However, when multiple procedures are performed as a part of a mommy makeover, they may prove to be more cost effective compared to each procedure individually. The costs of anesthesia, operating room facilities and other related costs may be common or may become reduced when a combination of procedures is performed together. The surgeon will discuss the cost estimate of the procedure in advance so that the patient can make an informed decision. The surgeon may also help the patient choose the most important procedures and exclude less important ones, if required due to the patient’s budget.

The extent of each individual procedure will also impact how lengthy, complicated and costly a procedure may turn out to be. For instance, a patient may need only partial tummy tuck surgery instead of a full tummy tuck. Liposuction may be required only in one area, or it may be required in several areas such as the thighs, hips, abdomen and arms. The cost will vary according to the extent of the procedure. Similarly, if breast implants are needed, the choice of implants will also make a difference to the overall costs of a mommy makeover.

Average Cost of Plastic Surgery Procedures

It is always a good idea to know the average prevailing costs of various major cosmetic surgery procedures. This can help a patient get a fair estimate of how much it will cost to choose a particular procedure as a part of a mommy makeover. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) statistics for 2012, the average cost of a tummy tuck surgery on a national basis was $5,241. This cost excludes the costs of anesthesia, surgical facility costs, and any other related expenses.

The ASPS cost figures for 2012 for breast augmentation surgery reveal that an average breast augmentation procedure in that year cost around $3,543. The ASPS indicated that the cost would vary depending on the choice of implants and other factors. Similarly, the average cost of a breast lift procedure in 2012 was $4,332 as per the ASPS. The average cost in case of liposuction in 2012 on a national basis turned out to be $2,852. The ASPS advised patients to consider the cost of prescription medications, post-surgical garments and accessories, anesthesia fees, and costs of medical tests separately.
