As the name suggests, a Mommy Makeover is designed for Mommies! New mothers often don’t have the skin elasticity they need to bounce back to their pre-pregnancy bodies, no matter how much they work out or diet. These mothers want to correct the not-so-good effects of pregnancy and nursing – usually a loose tummy and empty breasts. When it comes to feeling sexy and wearing fitted clothes and bikinis again, the Mommy Makeover is a welcome option for tightening and lifting after pregnancy.
Mommies who have completed their families can reward themselves by restoring perkier, fuller breasts and a flatter, smoother tummy. Procedures typically involved in a McLean Clinic Mommy Makeover include:
Sagging breasts are lifted and empty breasts filled with implants. The tummy is tucked to tighten it and remove some of the stretch marks. After a Mommy Makeover, our clients tell us they gain confidence from fitting clothing better and looking better in a bathing suit. They feel more attractive and more comfortable in their own skin. Mommies do this for themselves, but their children, partners and friends may also appreciate it.
The McLean Clinic aim is to make it as easy as we can for you to be beautiful! For example, we have eliminated unnecessary tubes or drains, hospital stays, and the need to have stitches removed. A Mommy Makevoer is unique in that we combine procedures to eliminate the need to return for multiple surgeries. Having your whole Mommy Makeover performed during one session can also make the procedure more cost-efficient for you. We try to make your whole experience as comfortable as possible. It is much easier to have your procedure in the privacy of our private Mississauga cosmetic facility with our understanding and caring staff looking after your needs and welfare.
All surgeries run the risk of potential complications. For an overview of risks and concerns associated with surgery, please click here. Dr. McLean will provide a thorough review of the risk factors that are specific to you and your chosen procedure.
The cost of a Mommy Makeover varies according to what you and Dr. McLean determine is required to give you the look you want with the best results. Your questions and concerns will be addressed personally by Dr. McLean and his team during an in-depth consultation.
Mommies may find that their appearance has been affected by the hormonal changes and stress of pregnancy and motherhood. They may notice that their facial skin had become more dry, discoloured or lax. Medical grade skin care is a potential answer to this, improving the texture, tone and colour of the facial skin, and complementing the Mommy Makeover’s new body. Our expert medical aesthetician will help your skin look its best. Pregnancy may also bring unwanted blemishes that may be surgically removed, and redness and brown discolorations that can be treated with a laser.
We all know that we take risks in life every day. The risks of surgery are very much like those of everyday life: really bad things (like being hit by a truck) are rare. Less bad things (like getting a hangnail) are more common.
When we think of the downside of surgery we think of things like infection (most infections are readily treatable), bleeding (generally well controlled during surgery), fluid collection, bad scars (wide, lumpy or discoloured, for example) and healing problems (leading to unexpected scarring). Most plastic surgery involves two sides of the body and they are never totally identical with or without surgery. Sensation can be altered by surgery. For example, loss of nipple sensation is a risk of many breast procedures.
As part of your preparation for surgery at the McLean Clinic, we provide you with information about the risks of the procedures you are undergoing. This is to inform you, not to frighten you! You will have the opportunity to discuss the risks with your doctor and we encourage you to ask questions and make sure that you understand everything you need to.
