As we meet with you, we will give you specific instructions so you can prepare for surgery. They may include the following:
An appointment will typically last from 30 minutes to an hour. We will thoroughly assess you and your needs and answer your questions at this time.
We will also talk with you about:
A mommy makeover is typically performed as an outpatient surgery, meaning you can go home the same day. The length of the surgery depends on what procedures you have with your mommy makeover.
Should the makeover need more than six hours total, it might be advised, for your safety, to split the mommy makeover into two separate surgeries. You can have the second surgery three months after the first.
As we prepare you for surgery:
During the procedure, your surgeon will give your abdomen a flatter, firmer appearance by tightening the muscles of your abdominal wall and removing excess fat and skin from your middle and lower abdomen.
The surgeon will place breast implants behind your breast tissue or muscle during breast augmentation. The incisions will be hidden either along the areolas or under your breasts.
During a breast lift, any excess skin from your breasts will be removed, and the surrounding breast tissue will be reshaped. They will also reposition your areolae and nipples and close the incision to tighten the remaining skin and lift your breasts. They might also reduce the size of your areolae.
During a breast reduction procedure, any excess fat, tissue, and skin from your breasts will be removed. At the same time, the size of your areolae may be reduced, and your surgeon may lift your breasts and make them more even in size.
A thin hollow tube (cannula) will be inserted through several small incisions during your liposuction. This will loosen and suction the fat from your body.
After your procedure, you will rest in a recovery room for around two hours. At that time, you should be ready to go home and will need someone to drive you. Before you leave, we will show you how to care for your drains if you have them. Depending on your procedures, we will also fit you with light bandages, compression garments, and a surgical bra. And if you didn’t already receive them, we will prescribe medications for you to help manage your pain and other symptoms.
Throughout your recovery, your surgeon will schedule regular follow-up visits to support you. It is most important that you remember to follow your surgeon’s aftercare instructions closely. Don’t hesitate to call us at 801-581-7719 if you ever have questions or concerns.
Some normal symptoms after a mommy makeover include swelling, bruising, discomfort, and limited mobility. Your surgeon will go over the following aftercare instructions with you that are specific to your surgeries to help your body heal.

You can expect the recovery to take as long as the most extensive procedure you are having. Tummy tucks, with at least three months, will typically have the longest recovery time.
