A Mommy Makeover is a combination procedure that, when performed by a talented and experienced surgeon, restores your body to a more attractive, pre-pregnancy appearance (sometimes even better!). Use of the Mommy Makeover term usually means that the procedures are all performed at once, minimizing recovery time and expenses, while maximizing the transformative benefit of the carefully planned and executed procedures.
The specific procedures Dr. Soto recommends for your Mommy Makeover will depend on your goals as an individual, the changes your body experienced as a result of your pregnancies (in other words your examination), and your preferences for other details like how much time off of work you have available and your budget.
Most often, Mommy Makeovers consist of a Tummy Tuck and a Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, or a combination breast augmentation and lift, but other combinations are also possible for patients interested in or requiring a bit of liposuction or a more rounded and shapely derriere.
For the healthy women most often interested in these procedures, our Mommy Makeovers are performed in Dr. Soto’s nationally accredited, on-site surgical suite in the Dr. Phillips neighborhood of Orlando.
The Mommy Makeover is an area of particular expertise for Dr. Soto, as evidenced by the outcomes and experiences his patients enjoy. Please visit our gallery and read our patient testimonials to learn more about our success with these wonderful transformations.
Any healthy woman who has experienced an unfavorable change in the shape and/or size of her breasts and abdomen after losing weight or having a baby is a candidate for a mommy makeover.
Ideally, your family is complete and you are at least 6 months removed from your last pregnancy (it can take a few months for your body to completely recover from pregnancy- not surprising as it took 9 moths to get there!). It is important to consider not only your goals for breast size, but most importantly for breast shape and position too, as this will often be the determinant of the procedure recommended for you.
Women 40 years of age and older should have a mammogram before surgery, and those with a history of a chronic medical problem, like hypothyroidism, high blood pressure, or diabetes, should visit their doctor for approval before surgery as well.
