Mommy Makeovers

The body undergoes many changes after childbirth: the breasts lose volume and begin to sag; abdominal muscles stretch and become loose; and excess weight accumulates in the hips, thighs, and buttocks. A mommy makeover procedure from St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery includes a combination of transformative procedures to remove fat, flatten the abdomen, and improve breast shape.

Procedure Overview

A mommy makeover can help improve the look of the body and breasts for women who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth. Typically, this surgery entails multiple procedures, most often liposuction, tummy tuck, breast lift or breast augmentation in St. Louis. A mommy makeover requires a high degree of specialization, and St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery tailors each surgery to best complement your physical characteristics while keeping your personal goals in mind.

Your Surgery

Due to the complexity of this surgery, most mommy makeovers are performed under general anesthesia. Usually, these procedures are performed simultaneously during one operation, which may last between 4 to 6 hours. However, these procedures can also be done individually if necessary.

A 2 to 3 week recovery is typical after a mommy makeover; however, the amount of downtime will depend on the number and type of surgeries performed. St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery uses the rapid recovery technique in order to minimize post operative pain, reduce bruising and swelling, and shorten recovery time. You will be provided with a pain pump, which slowly drips local anesthetic into the areas that will be the most sore – thereby greatly reducing discomfort. It is best to avoid weight-bearing or strenuous activity for several weeks.
