Mommy makeover refers to a combination of procedures that addresses the changes that occur in a woman’s body following pregnancy. Dr. Martin typically performs an abdominoplasty together with a breast procedure (breast augmentation or lift). Breast and abdominal procedures can safely be performed at the same time. The length of recovery is the same as when each procedure is performed separately (4-6 weeks). Patients may choose to have both a breast and abdominal procedure performed at the same time so that they do not have to recover twice from two separate operations.
Dr. Martin has performed many operations involving more than one body area at a time and patients are happy that they are able to have both procedures performed at once. During the initial consultation with Dr. Martin you can discuss your concerns. He will perform an examination and then have a discussion with you about your surgical options. He will also discuss with you whether or not you are a suitable candidate to have both a breast and abdominal procedure performed at the same time. He will make sure that all of your questions are answered and that you are comfortable before you decide to proceed with surgery.
