Mommy Makeover is a term commonly used by patients to describe a combination of cosmetic procedures that are designed to rejuvenate a woman's body following childbirth. It can include any mix of procedures that boost your confidence and restore your body but most commonly incorporates surgeries such as Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants), Breast Lift (with or without Breast Implants), Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), & Liposuction.
For many, becoming a mom is a beautiful, transformational experience but it definitely comes with its sacrifices. Of all the changes that we experience after childbirth, it's not uncommon for women to struggle with a significantly altered body that cannot be restored with diet and exercise. We believe that all bodies are remarkable and beautiful, but understand the delicate emotions that come with these changes. Most moms come to us saying "I just want to feel like myself again." At the Centre for Plastic Surgery our goal is to discover the combination Mommy Makeover procedures that will help you look and feel like YOU again.

On the day of surgery you will be treated in our on-site accredited surgical facility. Most Mommy Makeover procedures will require general anesthesia, so it's important that you have a dedicated caretaker accompany you. Depending on the procedure(s) that are performed, you will need your caretaker to stay with you after the surgery as well. You'll feel very sleepy, and sore in the days following. If a tummy tuck is a part of your plan, you will need help getting up
and down for at least the first five days. Most patients need at least one to two weeks of recovery time when breast and body procedures are combined. Our surgeons and support staff will walk you through all the details of your procedure(s) and recovery prior to your surgery day(s).
Most surgeries will require a garment that will need to be worn for the first six weeks. This is to help you heal properly. Most patients describe mild to moderate discomfort following Mommy Makeover procedures. Our surgeons will prescribe medication to help with your comfort. It's likely you will have some lifting restrictions for a few weeks, so this should be a consideration if your children are still small. Swelling is common with most mommy makeover surgeries for quite some time, but it’s important to understand when swelling becomes concerning. Make sure to ask questions about timing, physical restrictions, and expected results as they pertain to your specific surgical plan.
