Mommy Makeover

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

As moms, we get to experience one of the greatest miracles of life. Unfortunately, the magical changes our bodies undergo sometimes permanently change them in undesirable ways, no matter how fit or athletic we are.

Mommy Makeover packages address the typical post-pregnancy concerns of flabby stomachs and deflated breasts with tummy tuck surgeries and breast enhancement procedures – or both. Dr. Beverly Fischer is uniquely suited to help mommies regain and take pride in their bodies again.

Reasons to Consider

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover procedure can produce dramatic, immediate results. Breast enhancement surgery can help you restore sagging breasts to their pre-pregnancy shape through a breast lift – or even increase it to achieve your breastfeeding shape and volume through breast augmentation. We can also perform a breast reduction or lift.

If you had a baby and are experiencing a bloated abdominal look, where your muscles stretched or separated from pregnancy, a diastasis repair is a great option to remove that little beach or basketball in your belly.

Am I a Good Candidate?

You loved your pregnant shape, especially because it was growing a little one inside. But your body may not have bounced back like you hoped it would. Maybe your breasts have actually shrunk, or you liked them better when you were breastfeeding. Maybe and you have excess skin that won’t respond to exercise or dieting. Maybe you want to eliminate stretch marks. These are all good reasons for a Mommy Makeover treatment.

The leading female cosmetic surgeon in the Baltimore area, Dr. Beverly Fischer has performed hundreds of these procedures. She and her team are very adept at creating a natural and beautiful post-pregnancy body and will ensure that any scars are discreet and hidden below bathing suit or panty lines.

What to Expect

How to Prepare

Pre-Operative Appointment

Three weeks prior to your Mommy Makeover procedure, you’ll come to our offices to sign consent forms and receive highly specific pre- and post-operative instructions.

Date of the Procedure

For a Mommy Makeover surgery, we’ll take your “before” photos and then you will meet our Anesthesiologist who will explain their process and plan.  Dr. Fischer will then come in to “mark you up” with a marker according to her plan for you that day.  You will then walk back to the surgical suite and our team will get you prepped for surgery by connecting you to the monitors and inserting your IV.  Then we will administer general anesthesia, and Dr. Fischer will perform your desired procedure, employing cutting-edge tools created just for these specific surgeries. Drains will be placed and will remain for one week (you will not be able to take a shower until these drains are removed).

 

Afterward, we’ll make you comfortable with a surgical bra and a compression garment designed to help you heal faster. You’ll be able to go home that day, and any discomfort can be treated with prescription medication.

Recovery

After 3-7 Days

Your drains will be removed at the end of the first week and you can take that long-awaited shower!  You’ll be able to return to work at some point in this time period, depending upon the extent of the surgery. You’ll likely experience a good bit of swelling and bruising, but that will improve over time. Make sure that you’re getting enough rest and avoid strenuous activity for the first 1-2 weeks. Keep wearing your surgical bra and a compression garment for several weeks.

After 1 Week 

You can return to work and resume some of your lighter activities. You’ll wear the surgical bra and compression garment to help minimize swelling. Stitches in the breast will be removed after 2 weeks. And you’ll avoid strenuous activity for the first 2-3 weeks.

After 3-6 Weeks

Swelling subsides and you’ll see your new breasts emerge and your flat tummy.

After 7-12 Weeks

You can return to your regular exercise and life routines. Any small scars should recede within a year. Now you can enjoy looking and feeling your best!

 

If you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine, these results can be permanent. Your shape will be more proportional and aesthetically pleasing, and your clothes will look and fit better.

Cost

A Mommy Makeover procedure typically costs $16,850 as a combination of abdominoplasty and breast augmentation.
