When a woman has finished having children frequently there is a desire to improve areas that are most affected by pregnancy which usually includes the breasts and abdomen.
This will often involve an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck combined with a procedure to improve the breasts. Breast surgery frequently involves either implants or a lifting procedure or both.
This is a very common combination which has come to be known as the “Mommy Makeover.” There is a definite advantage to doing both procedures at once with one recovery time. This generally takes anywhere from 4 to 6 hours of surgery and recovery time is approximately 1 week to return to office type work and 4 to 6 weeks to do heavy activities. Costs are generally less when 2 surgeries are combined as well.
