Mommy Makeover in Reno, NV
After pregnancy or weight loss, some women find that their bodies do not bounce back to their pre-baby appearance. Loose and sagging skin, separated abdominal muscles, and unwanted fat deposits can disrupt their ideal body contours, and many of these changes do not respond to traditional diet and exercise. A Mommy Makeover is ideal for women looking to restore their physique after weight loss or pregnancy.
In a Mommy Makeover, two or more procedures are performed simultaneously including breast enhancement and body contouring. Combining plastic surgery procedures tends to achieve more comprehensive results while limiting recuperation.Schedule a Consultation
How Is A Mommy Makeover Performed?
What Is Covered During My Mommy Makeover Consultation?
The first step in any plastic surgery operation is a consultation. During this meeting, Dr. Bonaldi will examine your physical condition and ask you about your goals before recommending a treatment plan.
Once a treatment plan is in place, Dr. Bonaldi will answer any questions you have about your operation.
Is Anesthesia Used for Combined Plastic Surgery Operations?
Mommy Makeover surgery is performed under general anesthesia. This ensures you are fully unconscious throughout the operation and prevents you from feeling pain.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?
A Mommy Makeover combines breast and body plastic surgery procedures into one comprehensive operation.
The main benefit of a Mommy Makeover is the ability to fully customize their operation to meet their specific needs.
Your operation may include one or more of the following:
- Breast augmentation surgery uses breast implants to increase the size and improve the shape of the breasts.
- Breast lift surgery removes loose breast skin and uses suturing techniques to lift and firm sagging breasts.
- Breast reduction surgery removes excess glandular tissue and breast fat to create smaller and lighter breasts.
- Tummy tuck surgery corrects separated muscles and removes excess skin and fat
- Liposuction procedures remove excess fat accumulations from the body to create more slender contours.
Additionally, some patients choose to incorporate other body contouring surgeries. You can discuss all of your options during your consultation with Dr. Bonaldi.
What Can I Expect After a Mommy Makeover?
How Long Does the Recovery From a Mommy Makeover Take?
Recovery after your Mommy Makeover will vary depending on the procedures you choose. In general, you will need to take at least two weeks off from work. It will be at least four to six weeks before you may resume physically demanding work, chores, or exercises.
Is a Mommy Makeover Painful?
A Mommy Makeover is performed using general anesthesia, so you will not feel any pain during surgery. Over-the-counter or prescription pain medication can be taken as needed throughout your recovery to keep you comfortable.
Most patients will experience moderate discomfort, especially during the first week of their recovery. If you experience severe pain during your recovery, contact your plastic surgeon right away.
When Will I See My Mommy Makeover Results?
The initial results of your Mommy Makeover may begin to appear in as little as two weeks. Final results may take six months to a year to fully develop, depending on the procedures performed and the extent of swelling.
How Long Will My Mommy Makeover Results Last?
The results from your Mommy Makeover procedure are intended to be long lasting. However, natural aging, weight fluctuations, and future pregnancy can influence your appearance. Living a healthy lifestyle, eating right, and following an exercise routine can help maintain your plastic surgery results for years to come.
Frequently Asked Questions About Mommy Makeover Surgery
How much does a Mommy Makeover cost in Reno, NV?
Your Mommy Makeover cost will vary depending on which procedures are performed and the techniques used for each. The average price of Mommy Makeover surgery depends on surgeon fees, anesthesia fees, operating room fees, and the procedure’s location.
Can I have children after my Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover will not prevent you from having more children or disrupt your pregnancy in any way. However, some breast procedures may interfere with your ability to breastfeed. In addition, pregnancy or significant weight gain may reverse some of the positive effects of your cosmetic surgery. For this reason, Dr. Bonaldi recommends undergoing a Mommy Makeover only when you are done having children and have maintained a stable weight for at least three months.
Do I have to be a mom to undergo a Mommy Makeover?
No, you do not have to be a mother to undergo this combination of plastic surgeries. The term “Mommy Makeover” is used to describe a combination of procedures that treat areas of the body commonly affected by pregnancy.
How long does a Mommy Makeover take to perform?
A Mommy Makeover can take varying amounts of time depending on the procedures involved. Most operations take between three and six hours, though some surgeries may take more or less time.
Can I drive home after plastic surgery?
Since your procedure is performed under general anesthesia, you cannot drive yourself home. Please bring a responsible friend or family member to help you after your surgery.
What are the risks of a Mommy Makeover?
All plastic surgery comes with some degree of risk. A Mommy Makeover, as a combination of several cosmetic surgery procedures, is no exception. While Dr. Bonaldi does his best to reduce the chance of complications, it is never entirely risk-free.
Some risks associated with a Mommy Makeover include:
- Poor wound healing
- Breast asymmetry
- Undesirable body contours
- Nerve damage
