RAPID MOMMY MAKEOVER RECOVERY: The NO Drain 24 Hour Recovery Mommy Makeover Protocol
Yes, you can have a mommy make over with a full tummy tuck and breast surgery in Seattle, WA and be recovered in 24 hours. You are not healed but you are recovered enough to be out walking or out to dinner in 24 hours. This is possible with:
- A NO Drain technique for the tummy tuck
- A 24 hour recovery protocol for the breasts and the tummy tuck (they are essentially the same for both)
- Anti-inflammatories rather than narcotics.
- Conscious sedation anesthesia rather than general anesthesia.
- The use of long acting local anesthetics like Marcaine.
Plastic Surgery Post-Pregnancy
After pregnancy, the breasts often droop or “deflate”. This is most common after breast feeding. In addition, and the tummy becomes loose since the abdominal muscles or rectus can become separated and the skin of the stomach or tummy can become permanently stretched out. The result may be a bulging tummy with or without extra skin as well as stretch marks. In addition, excess fat can accumulate on the love-handle area as well as the hips and thighs.
A mommy makeover is any combination of surgeries that will be needed to restore your body shape. It may include a breast augmentation, breast lift or mastopexy, tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck and liposuction. Which exact procedures you would need depend upon your specific goals and needs.
For the breasts, some women in the Seattle area need a simple breast augmentation to replace volume. In this case, shaped gummy bear breast implants are perfect to restore not only that volume but the shape as well.
Sometimes a breast lift is needed. This may be all that is required if the breasts fill out a bra to a satisfactory size. A breast lift is also called a mastopexy. However, breast implants may also be required if the breast are both deflated and droopy.
On occasion, some women, after pregnancy, rather than having smaller, saggy breasts, have bigger breasts, in which case a breast reduction is needed.
For the tummy, most patients need body contouring procedures such as a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with tightening of the muscle layer as well as removal of the excess skin and fat. If a woman’s problem is mostly below the umbilicus or belly button, a less invasive surgery called a mini-abdominoplasty can usually be done.
Some patients may require liposuction of the hips, flanks (love-handle areas), or thighs in order to smooth out their contours and lengthen the appearance of the torso area.
