Specifically designed for female patients who seek to restore their post-childbirth figures, the mommy makeover involves combining tummy tuck surgery with at least one other procedure. For some, it is combined with liposuction; for others, breast lift surgery. The results are beautiful, but as a New York mommy makeover surgeon, I advise all mommy makeover patients to be certain they do not plan any future pregnancies following the procedure.
When addressing multiple procedures, keep in mind that surgical risks increase with time in the operating room. Try to avoid any string of procedures that last longer than 4-5 hours. As I tell all my patients, after 4 hours, I start to get tired and so will they. These are elective procedures and we should make every effort to minimize any potential risks.
