Changes occur to the body with pregnancy and breastfeeding that many women would rather reverse. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Chang uses his skill and experience to evaluate your unique needs and cosmetic goals before creating a specific surgical plan. For most women, a mommy makeover includes:
Although those are the most common choices, a mommy makeover is truly a customizable operation, and you can add or forego many different procedures. For instance, some patients add anti-aging facial treatments to their mommy makeovers for a comprehensive rejuvenation.
Combining procedures is common and safe, but it is important to choose a plastic surgeon with extensive experience. Dr. Chang is meticulous about planning each surgery to ensure your safety and to get the best possible results.
Dr. Chang uses a range of specialized techniques for each mommy makeover depending on the surgical options you choose. In some cases, for instance, a full tummy tuck isn't necessary, and he instead performs what's called a mini-tummy tuck. This is an appropriate approach for patients who don't need abdominal muscle repair or belly button repositioning.
Additionally, Dr. Chang is experienced with various types of liposuction, enabling him to choose the best approach for you. The choices include:
Additionally, Dr. Chang uses advanced suturing techniques and carefully plans incisions so that they are hidden in the most discreet positions possible.
He also understands that for many mothers, planning a mommy makeover can be a challenge both logistically and emotionally. He and all of our team members use compassion, sensitivity, and precise planning to provide you with a process that is convenient and exciting, helping you restore a sense of femininity and confidence.
Many of Dr. Chang's mommy makeover patients ask questions that involve the recovery process, which is understandable after a significant procedure. For patients with young children, recovering from surgery poses unique challenges. A good support system of loved ones and friends is especially helpful during the first 7 to 10 days following surgery.
Dr. Chang provides all patients with detailed postoperative instructions based on the procedures performed. If you had a tummy tuck and have small children, you should avoid lifting them for the first couple of weeks. Even though a mommy makeover combines different procedures, the recovery is generally not much longer than if you had a single procedure performed. Dr. Chang encourages mommy makeover patients to contact our office with any questions or concerns during their recovery.
