Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover is a one-surgery life changer. It entails a tummy tuck and a breast surgery and it is truly a transformative procedure. That may be a breast reduction, breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast augmentation with a breast lift. You can have the two surgeries together, assuming that you are healthy and fit for surgery. Liposuction can also be done sparingly at the same time, or more extensively at a second procedure. Finally, if you have an umbilical hernia, you can have that treated at the same time as your abdominoplasty (tummy tuck.)

Patients are advised that they will achieve the best, long-term, lasting result when they are at a stable weight, which they can comfortably and realistically maintain for years. If you starve yourself and put on weight after the surgery, the results will not stay as beautiful as they could - compared with the surgery being performed at a more permanent weight.  Several months at a stable weight is ideal.  The advantages of a Mommy Makeover include: one surgery day, one recovery, significant cost savings, and getting a beautiful result at once, rather than having to wait.

For a Mommy Makeover, the most important considerations for a beautiful tummy tuck are a natural looking belly button and a low hidden scar. For the breast surgery, it really needs to be customized. There are several options that can work, but some may be more ideal.  Dr Shortt will go over your options, so you feel that your surgery is specifically planned for you.

When to consider having this procedure?

In general, candidates for mommy makeover surgery are aged 25-65 years, are in good health and are able to have general anaesthetic, and may have one or more of the following characteristics:

  • interested in returning their bodies back to its pre-pregnancy stage
  • caesarian scars, sagging and or stretched skin due to pregnancy
  • excessive skin around the abdomen due to significant weight loss
  • desire to restore a firmer, tighter waistline
  • dissatisfied with current breast cup size and shape
  • sagging or deflated breasts due to post-pregnancy or weight loss
  • lost breast volume due to the aging process
  • asymmetry (different sizes) of the left and right breasts, in shape or size
  • desire to enhance your current silhouette
  • breast enlargement to accompany another procedure such as liposuction, tummy tuck or a mini tummy tuck

What is the recovery time?

Recovery time varies for everyone, but patients are usually moving slowly for a couple days, feeling good at about a week, and wanting to get back to everything at 2 weeks. For office work, 1 week is doable and 2 is perfect. For heavy lifting, give yourself 6 weeks.

As with any surgery under general anaesthetic, there are potential risks or complications to consider. During your private consultation,  Dr Shortt surgeon will take a thorough medical history from you, discuss your surgical options, explain the complete procedure and potential risks, discuss what to expect pre and post surgery, and your estimated recovery time.

What's New in Mommy Makeovers?

1. Breast Fat Transfer

Some patients want larger breasts but don’t want breast implants. Fat transfer to the breast has become an increasingly popular way of doing breast enlargement surgery.

2. Liposuction

 Most people have a trouble spot on their body that they would like to disappear. Liposuction is a great procedure to contour the body. In the setting of a Mommy Makeover, it can be done to remove a roll of fat in the armpits, the waist area, the thighs (especially the saddlebags on the outside), or the roll in the medial thighs.

3. Laser Resurfacing

A laser skin treatment (or laser resurfacing) takes about an hour, but can wipe away years of sun damage and signs of aging.

4. Labiaplasty

Vaginal rejuvenation is one of the fastest growth areas in plastic surgery. The most common procedure is a labiaplasty. For women that have a larger labia than desired, it can be reduced and reshaped.

Dr. Shortt impressed me with his expertise, professionalism, kindness, generosity, attention to detail, and humour.

Dr. Shortt performed a tummy tuck on me after I had lost a significant amount of weight. Throughout the entire process of evaluation through to follow-ups, Dr. Shortt impressed me with his expertise, professionalism, kindness, generosity, attention to detail, and humour. He made me feel very comfortable, even though I am rather shy about my body. He is a wonderful doctor, does does fantastic work, and is lovely person in general. I had my last appointment with him this morning, and I will miss him. His support staff are also very kind and helpful, and there have even been occasions where I was early and able to see him before my scheduled appointment. I recommend him to anyone and everyone.

Dr Shortt is amazing in all aspects of care

This summer I had a tummy tuck and thigh lift at Briarwood. I am more than thrilled! Dr Shortt is amazing in all aspects of care; his attention to detail, his compassion, his bedside manner and his marvelous sense of humour. I did my homework beforehand and knew he was top-rated, but he exceeded in all areas. Staff at the clinic are friendly, professional and helpful. Many thanks!!!!!
