Mommy Makeover in Missouri City, TX
Dr. David Stapenhorst of Signature Plastic Surgery is proud to provide Mommy Makeovers to women in Missouri City, Texas. After childbirth, women often struggle to regain the body they had prior to pregnancy.
When diet and exercise fail to address permanent changes to the body, a Mommy Makeover can restore a youthful appearance to the breasts and stomach. Women may utilize breast augmentation or a breast lift to increase the firmness and size of their breasts. Other procedures typically included in the Mommy Makeover are liposuction and tummy tucks, which can address both excess skin and fat.
How does Dr. David Stapenhorst Perform the Mommy Makeover procedure?
A general anesthetic is used during a Mommy Makeover to ensure that the patient is sleeping and comfortable throughout the procedure. Next, Dr. Stapenhorst will make incisions in the areola or along the breast fold to make room for the implant inside the breast cavity. Each incision is carefully closed and stitched after the implants are placed. After the procedure is finished, bandages will be applied, and the patient will be moved to a recovery room until they are fully recovered from the anesthesia.
When Can Normal Activities Resume After the Mommy Makeover Procedure?
Mommy Makeover patients are normally able to resume their daily activities about five days after their surgery, depending on their individual procedures. Patients are advised to refrain from sleeping on their stomach for three weeks. To achieve optimal results, patients should have a family member or friend stay with them for the day immediately following their procedure. This will allow them time to rest and speed up the healing process. Patients typically return to work within two weeks.
