The “best age” for a mommy makeover is really whatever age you are when you decide to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy state.  Outside of being a healthy adult, there are no age restrictions regarding the mommy makeover procedure.  There are, however, some practical considerations.

Woman holding child and wondering when is the best age for a mommy makeoverIf you are not finished with having a family, it is best to postpone things, until you are finished having children. It is very likely that changes made during the mommy makeover procedure would be undone with subsequent pregnancies, making the procedure best for women who are satisfied with the size of their families and do not plan on having more children.

The best way to learn if now is the right time to undergo a plastic surgery procedure is by talking with Dr. Fiala about your desires, your future plans, and your ultimate goals.  During your consultation, he will take time to listen carefully to where you are and where you would like to be, and provide you with honest information about those options that will be best for your needs now, and into the future.

Breast & Body Procedures Combined

During mommy makeover surgery, breast and body procedures are often combined to correct issues brought about by pregnancy. These can include excess fat accumulation throughout the body, stretch marks and sagging skin, separated abdominal muscles, and breast deflation.  Drooping breast tissue and nipple displacement are also common results of pregnancy and nursing.

To address these issues and restore the body to its pre-pregnancy shape, Dr. Fiala typically offers a “three-in-one” mommy makeover procedure which includes:

  • Tummy tuck surgery to remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and hips. This procedure can also be used to address abdominal muscle separation, which is common after multiple pregnancies, and to reposition the belly button. When excess skin is removed, stretch marks may also be eliminated, allowing tummy tuck surgery to provide comprehensive results to the midsection of the body.
    Why Choose Us:
    At Fiala Aesthetics, the “TAP block” technique is utilized to minimize pain after tummy tuck surgery.  This revolutionary technique, which Dr. Fiala helped to develop, provides optimal comfort during the initial stages of recovery.  The extended abdominoplasty method is used to dramatically tighten the abdominal skin.
  • Breast augmentation to restore lost volume, shape, and symmetry to the breasts.  In some cases, breast lift surgery is combined with augmentation to restore the breasts and the nipples to a more youthful and perky position.
    Why Choose Us:
    Dr. Fiala prefers dual plane placement for breast implants – which reduces complications while producing optimal results.  Inframammary incisions help protect against a loss of nipple sensitivity, and the various implant options, including “gummy bear” implants, allow for complete personalization and the most natural-looking results.
  • Liposuction to sculpt the waist and lower back and produce an “hour-glass” figure.
    Why Choose Us:
    Dr. Fiala offers SAFElipo, a comprehensive body contouring technique that has been shown to preserve vascular integrity and minimize risks and complications, all while maximizing skin retraction for enhanced results.

These options are commonly included in the mommy makeover procedure at Fiala Aesthetics, but others may be offered, depending on the circumstances.  During your initial consultation, Dr. Fiala will determine which treatments will be of most benefit in helping you reach your goals.

By and large, normal activities can be resumed within a few weeks of tummy tuck surgery. Some things, like more progressive forms of exercise, may need to be avoided for up to eight weeks. During your follow-up visits, Dr. Fiala can address any questions you have about recovery and provide you with individualized guidance to help ensure you are only adding those activities that are safe at each stage of recovery.

Follow-up visits are included in the cost of tummy tuck surgery at Fiala Aesthetics. These visits give us an opportunity to carefully evaluate your level of recovery at each stage and to make personalized recommendations and modifications that help ensure you experience the most rewarding recovery possible.

Driving Restrictions After Abdominoplasty

Most patients are able to drive short distances within two weeks of abdominoplasty. This can, of course, vary from patient to patient, making it important that you only resume specific activities when given the go-ahead by Dr. Fiala. Taking up activities like driving may need to be delayed longer if your surgery was more involved or if multiple procedures were performed, and long-distance driving may need to be avoided for six weeks or longer.  All of this will be discussed in greater detail during your time in our care.

During tummy tuck recovery, limitations on more advanced or demanding activities are necessary for proper recovery. However, mild exercise is both encouraged and important for successful healing. As soon as 24 hours after your procedure you can begin to take short walks, gradually increasing their length with each day. Walking helps improve the body’s healing response and can help reduce swelling, discomfort, and issues brought about by inactivity such as constipation. It can also provide a foundation for a healthy lifestyle.

As with mild exercise, eating and drinking appropriately will help with the healing response. Keeping hydrated and choosing foods that are healthful to the body can help improve the recovery experience. Processed foods, foods and drinks high in sugar, and snack foods can activate an inflammation response that works to delay and interfere with incision healing.

Before your procedure, Dr. Fiala will cover pre and postoperative care instructions – including medications, supplements, and habits that will need to be put on hold – to help ensure the most pleasant recovery period. During your follow-up visits, this advice can be restated, expanded on, or modified to meet your specific needs.
