The term Mommy Makeover surgery has typically been used to describe a combination of cosmetic breast and abdominoplasty surgery to correct changes that occur in these areas after childbirth. For example, one of the most common mommy makeover procedures that Dr. Andrade performs is breast implants and a mini tummy tuck. Other surgeries may combine a breast lift, full tummy tuck and/or abdominal liposuction.
The advantage of a combined procedure is a single recovery period, which can be important for a person who is working either inside or outside the home. Most people tolerate a combined operation very well, but the risk of certain complications can also increase during a longer operation.

The pros and cons must be weighed during a proper consultation with an experienced surgeon. At The York Plastic Surgery Centre we always arrange a thorough consultation with the surgeon. The consultation includes understanding the patient’s specific goals, examining areas of concern, outlining the risks and benefits, as well as healing time.
