What is a Mommy Makeover?
At Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina helps women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. Even though childbirth is an exciting and amazing moment for many women, it can change the look, shape, and size of various parts of the body. This can make you feel a little frustrated or self-conscious. Thanks to the help of the mommy makeover procedure, women can achieve a youthful-looking and tighter figure. The mommy makeover procedure uses a combination of fat removal and skin tightening to target the breasts, tummy, and lower body. Dr. Cuzalina will address symptoms caused by weight gain or nursing. Additionally, we offer nonsurgical treatments that reduce the appearance of skin blemishes, such as stretch marks. If needed, he can also perform procedures that can tighten the vaginal canal or reduce excess skin on the labia. At Tulsa Surgical Arts, we strive to help you enhance your natural beauty. Please call to schedule with Dr. Cuzalina and learn more about the mommy makeover.
Mommy Makeover Reviews
Candidates for the mommy makeover include patients who:
- Experienced pregnancy, childbirth, or nursing
- Tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle but with little results
- Feel embarrassed by the remaining side effects of pregnancy, such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or undesirable areas of fat on the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks
For so many new moms, surgery is recommended to reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies. If you are past childbearing, but you feel frustrated with your body, a mommy makeover could help you. Dr. Cuzalina's overall goal is to help you regain your pre-pregnancy shape so you can resume life without worry.
A mommy makeover is a unique treatment that we tailor for each patient. Depending on your cosmetic concerns, Dr. Cuzalina will create a treatment plan that works best for you. He can combine a variety of popular procedures, such as a breast lift, breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. In one of our private, AAAHC-accredited operating rooms, we use general anesthesia to help you remain comfortable. Your surgery can last around 3 – 7 hours, but the timing depends on the specific treatment types. In some cases, you may require a day-long stay in our recovery room so we can carefully monitor you. For additional enhancement, your treatment plan might include nonsurgical skin procedures, such as an injection or a laser treatment. These treatments can reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles or other surface irregularities.
What to Expect
After leaving the hospital, you will start your recovery at home with plenty of rest and proper aftercare. Recovering from this surgery is a gradual process. At first, for a couple of weeks, you may have difficulty walking. In your aftercare documentation, you'll receive step-by-step instructions to ensure your incisions heal properly. Overall, the majority of women find that their healing process can take about six months. However, in about two weeks, you should be able to go back to work. You should avoid working out for about two months because it could impact your healing progress. In the end, a mommy makeover can help you live more comfortably and help you feel more confident.
