Mommy Makeover Q & A
Why do I need a mommy makeover?
After a pregnancy, the changes to your body can be dramatic. Diet and exercise can only go so far in improving your appearance and self-confidence after childbirth. Your body also loses weight and muscle tone, resulting in sagging breasts and excess skin across your abdomen.
The mommy makeover typically includes a tummy tuck and breast augmentation or lift. These procedures can restore the contour and balance of your body, helping you achieve a post-pregnancy body you love.
Dr. Tornambe recommends postponing a mommy makeover until after you’re done having children to help you maintain long-term results.
What can I expect during my mommy makeover consultation?
Dr. Tornambe spends a lot of time with you, discussing your surgical goals and personal desires for enhancing your breast and abdominal area. He answers all of your surgery questions upfront to ensure you know what to expect.
During your consultation, Dr. Tornambe creates a custom treatment plan to address your specific needs. He also reviews your medical history to ensure you’re healthy enough for surgery.
What is the difference between a breast augmentation and a lift?
If you have lost volume in your breasts, a breast augmentation may be the better solution. An augmentation uses saline or silicone implants to increase your breast size and shape, giving you fuller breasts.
If you’re not concerned with the size of your natural breasts, but want to correct sagging, low-hanging breasts, Dr. Tornambe may recommend a breast lift. During this procedure, Dr. Tornambe can reposition your breasts by removing excess skin. He also tightens surrounding tissue to enhance and support the new contours of your breasts.
How long does recovery take from a mommy makeover?
Dr. Tornambe performs your mommy makeover in his state-of-the-art, certified operative suite in his Upper East Side office. He uses either general anesthesia or local anesthesia and light sedation, which a board-certified anesthesiologist administers and monitors throughout your surgery. You spend a few hours recovering with a registered nurse before you can go home.
Following surgery, you receive complete postoperative instructions to care for your incisions and ensure proper healing. Typically, you can expect to return to work and most of your normal activities within seven to 10 days. However, you will need to avoid strenuous activity, including sex, for up to three weeks after your surgery.
