Mommy Makeover Procedures In Toronto

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of surgical and non-surgical treatments that lead to restoration and rejuvenation of a female’s figure.

Mommy Makeover Breast Augmentation Surgery

In general, the post baby body contour concerns involve loss of volume, deflation, descent and flattening of the shape of the breasts.  Generally, breast augment using implants is the recommended procedure for breast rejuvenation. 

At SpaMedica, the VECTRA 3D® high-tech photographic system will allow you to select the kind of shape and implant that gives you the best possible optimized shape. It is a photographic system where a breast augment patient can have their preoperative photos taken and then various breast implants selected that very accurately create the simulated appearance and result the surgery will provide. 

Breast Implants Type 

There are a variety of breast implants sizes and shapes and the vast majority of mommy make over patients select the new Cohesive Silicone Gel Breast implants, or “Gummy Bear” implants as they are less likely to leak or show ripples and wrinkles compared to the older saline filled breast implants.

The Cohesive Gel Implants feel much more natural, do not leak and come with a life time warranty. The incision used and pocket placement for your mommy make over breast implant and breast augment surgery will be discussed with the surgeon.

Mommy Makeover Body Contouring

Other body contour concerns that often need to be addressed with the Mommy Makeover include lax skin of the abdomen, stretch marks and laxity of the abdominal muscle.

One or more of these post baby tummy changes may have conspired to compromise your figure, shape and form following childbirth.

These post mommy tummy anatomical changes and aesthetic concerns are corrected, with combinations of advanced modern liposuction technique such as BodyTite and SmartLipo, in combination with mini tummy tucks, especially if a C-section scar was deployed for childbirth and/or standard tummy tucks if the tummy changes are more extensive.

Figure 6.  Patients may undergo combinations of Bodytite™ and Smartlipo™ for the gentle removal of unwanted fat and the non-excisional contraction of soft tissue.  For more extensive skin laxity, then the Bodytite™ and SmartLipo™ can be combined with mini tummy tuck incisions or standard tummy tucks where the loose skin is removed, and the belly button may be restored and the muscles may be tightened.

The extent of the abdominal contouring required necessitates a consultation and examination of the degenerative effects that have occurred with pregnancy.

Non-surgical treatments can be combined with your surgical treatments such as high speed laser hair removal, removal of pregnancy mask and hyperpigmentation in the facial areas, cellulite reduction, non-surgical treatments, such as stretch mark removal.

Best candidates for mommy makeover

Good candidates for Mommy Makeovers are patients who want to achieve a significant improvement in their figure, shape and form after multiple children and breast-feeding. 

In general, most patients want to have a return to ideal proportions and shape of breast, waist and hip ratios, with tightening of abdominal tissue, such that they look good in evening gowns, tight dresses, skirts and shirts as well as in bathing wear and out of clothes.

Individuals who may be pregnant at the time of the procedure, have unrealistic expectations, are medically unwell, or have inflammatory, infectious lesions or skin cancers in the areas of treatment, are not be suited for the mommy makeover procedures. 

Anesthesia used during the procedure

With modern anesthetic techniques, most mommy makeovers can be performed under IV sedation or and less invasive anesthetic techniques.  Most procedures last three to four hours or less and generally the recovery times are measured in one to two weeks.

Is the Mommy Makeover painful?

Depending on the type of tummy correction required, muscle tightening or not, and the type of breast augment and breast implant or lift technique deployed, under the muscle or above, will determine the amount of pain and discomfort. 

In general, however, women who have undergone childbirth find Mommy Makeover surgery far less painful and just as pleasing as it is a lifelong, rewarding adventure.

How long does the Mommy Makeover procedure take?

Most procedures can be performed in four hours or less, depending on the number and combination of procedures that are being performed. 

Recovery

Most patients require approximately 1-2 weeks of recovery time, especially if the combination of procedures include breast implants and breast augmentation surgery combined with high tech modern liposuction, such as Bodytite™ and Smartlipo™ and no actual tummy tuck is needed. 

Mommy makeovers with combined full tummy tuck surgery with muscle tummy tightening and repair with breast augmentation performed both under the under the muscle and combined with  liposuction surgery, will usually  require 2-3 weeks before return to low-impact activities of daily living, such as work and routine child care and housework.

However, 1-3 weeks of recovery following a Mommy Makeover does not mean that patients are immobile.  At SpaMedica, we believe in early ambulation and movement, even on the first day and most patients are kept overnight for the safest possible period of observation and also to mobilize patients and get them ambulatory.

During that two-week recovery period, you will be seen approximately three to four more times at SpaMedica, where your dressings will be changed, the progress of your surgical healing assessed and recommendations made.  The recovery period is also a time where you will wear a soft, supportive bra for the breast augmentation and implantssurgery, a liposuction body contouring garment for your tummy tuck and liposuction procedures.  This garment will help shrink wrap your skin, ensuring the best possible skin contour and shape.

There may be small drains that are also deployed under your skin following your abdominal skin tightening treatment, be it BodyTite™, SmartLipo™ advanced liposuction surgery or Mini or Standard tummy tuck surgery.  These drain are placed under the skin in the operative pocket will help facilitate removal of lymphatic fluid until your own lymphatic system can take over.  Generally, at the end of 10 to 14 days, all tummy drains are removed.  Small drains are also used in your breast augmentation surgery to greatly reduce the early swelling and turgid distension that can be associated with breast augment surgery and these are usually removed on day three

What kind of results can I expect from my SpaMedica Mommy Makeover?

Patients are generally extremely pleased with their aesthetic contour, shape and form.  

Dr. Mulholland, cosmetic surgeon, has performed many mommy makeovers on television shows such as Cityline, Global Entertainment Tonight and CTV’s eTalk and the results of these treatments can be viewed on this website.

How long will the results of my Mommy Makeover last?

The results of your procedure should last the rest of your life.  The modern liposuction techniques will permanently remove unwanted post baby fat that you are unable to shed through diet and exercise, typically off the hips, flanks, outer/inner thighs and sometimes the inner knees and arms. 

As long as you exhibit self-control, moderate exercise and weight maintenance, the improvements will be life long.  The results of your breast augmentation and/or breast lift surgery will also be life long, as modern cohesive gel breast implants are warrantied now for life.

Is there any maintenance required following my Mommy Makeover?

For the surgical corrections of the Mommy Makeover, including breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, BodyTite™ or SmartLipo™, there is no specific maintenance required. 

However, other components of the non-surgical Mommy Makeover, including skin tightening treatments, stretch mark reduction treatments, cellulite reduction treatments and laser hair removal may require a certain degree of maintenance.

 

Cost

The cost of the Mommy Makeover will depend upon the combinations of procedures and techniques deployed.  But in general, most Mommy Makeovers, if one combines a breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, abdominoplasty surgery and multiple-site body liposuction treatments and cellulite reduction treatments the costs will be in the range of $10,000 to $18,000, depending upon severity and extent.  SpaMedica offers patient financing to help defray this cost over monthly payments spread out over several years.
