Mommy Makeover

Let's Talk About Combination Surgery & Safety

Discover the aspects of mommy makeovers and the safest combination of procedures.

Is a Mommy Makeover Safe? Let's Talk Safety First

Okay, let's dive into a topic that's on many women's minds when considering a mommy makeover surgery: safety. 

We get it – safety is a top priority, and the decision to undergo surgery comes with questions and concerns. 

Join Jenny Eden and Gretta Nance from Amelia Academy as they share insights into the safety of mommy makeovers.

Understanding the Combination: What's a Mommy Makeover?

So, what exactly is a mommy makeover? It's not just one surgery; it's a combination of procedures designed to address multiple areas affected by pregnancy, childbirth, aging, and genetics. 

Picture this – a tummy tuck (used to remove excess skin and repair separation of the abdominal muscles), breast lift (addresses breast shape), breast augmentation (adds volume with breast implants), and sometimes liposuction (body contouring) all in one go. 

Jenny and Gretta refer to it as "combination surgery," and it can be very safe, given the right circumstances.

Safety in Numbers: Time Under Anesthesia Matters

Safety, as Jenny emphasizes, often boils down to the duration of the procedure. A skilled surgeon with an experienced team can make combination surgery safe. 

It’s important to ask your surgeon about the estimated duration. Generally, being under anesthesia for four to five hours is considered safe, but complications can arise with longer procedures.

 It's a delicate balance, and communication with your surgeon is key.

Choosing Wisely: Combining the Right Procedures

Not all procedures play well together, though. Jenny and Gretta share insights on what combinations work seamlessly and which ones might pose challenges. 

For instance, combining a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) with a tummy tuck can result in a tough recovery. Picture this – recovering on your side post-surgery.

The combination of a tummy tuck and a BBL often requires patients to avoid putting pressure on their newly sculpted behind. It's a delicate balancing act, quite literally.

A tummy tuck involves removing loose skin and repairing separation of the abdominal muscles, while a BBL focuses on enhancing the buttocks.

These differing areas translate to distinct recovery requirements. Managing the discomfort and restrictions of both procedures simultaneously can prove challenging.

On the flip side, a breast lift, implants, liposuction, and a tummy tuck often combine well, ensuring a more comfortable recovery.

Your Safety, Your Decision: Consultation with Your Plastic Surgeon

The safety of your mommy makeover largely depends on your surgeon's expertise, your health, and the combination of procedures you're considering.

We always encourage open communication with your plastic surgeon. During your consultation be empowered to discuss your goals, anatomy, and any concerns you may have. 

It's your body, and you have the right to make informed decisions about your safety.
