How do I prepare for a Mommy Makeover?
In your initial consultation with Dr. Antimarino, make sure to discuss your expectations for the procedure. This is the time to discuss your concerns and your goals as he will design a surgical plan specifically for you.
You may want to come in with a list of questions that you want answered before the procedure. This will eliminate any confusion, and will provide you with the most comfortable experience at Bellissimo Plastic Surgery & Medi Spa.
The use of Aspirin, Ibuprofen, or other supplements that may increase bruising should be stopped two weeks prior to surgery.
Patients should bring a sports bra to their consultation appointment for implant sizing.
Lastly, you will also want to read through our patient resources, such as our note of privacy policies and surgeon checklist, to better educate yourself about the entire surgical process.
Surgery: A Mommy Makeover is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure in an accredited surgical facility. Surgery time is approximately 3-4 hours.
After Surgery: A Mommy Makeover requires approximately 2-3 weeks of downtime. Patients are discharged with a postop compression bra and an abdominal binder. Drains are used for the abdomen if a Tummy Tuck was performed and are usually removed within 2 weeks. Patients will wear a sports bra for approximately 3-4 weeks and the abdominal binder for approximately 3 weeks. Patients may return to work within 2 weeks and resume exercise in 3 weeks.
