Your Mommy Makeover Journey
Choosing to undergo a Mommy Makeover should be for your own personal reasons. We recommend that women considering surgery have a vision for what they want their body to look like. Compiling photos that showcase elements of your ideal appearance is helpful in determining your goals. It’s important to remember that a Mommy Makeover isn’t a one-size-fits-all procedure. We will tailor each procedure to your body type and your wants. Dr. Andreasen will help guide you through the decision-making process to ensure we reach your aesthetic goals.
Dr. Andreasen is a leading breast and body expert in the Inland Empire. He understands both the emotional and physical needs that his Mommy Makeover patients have, and he knows the best solutions to meet those needs. During your consultation, Dr. Andreasen evaluates your body type, medical history, and goals. He balances these factors to recommend the best options for your procedure. Implant simulators may be used to help determine your ideal implant size.
A combination of breast and body procedures is used to achieve your desired look. One, two, or all of the offered techniques may be utilized to restore the shape of your body. We carefully consider factors such as ideal breast size and locations of excess fat when designing your Mommy Makeover. We pay special attention to create natural curves and realistic results. We want you to look and feel amazing with your new body. You may even feel better than you did before your pregnancy.
You will experience bruising and swelling after your surgery. A special support bra and compression garments will be worn throughout your recovery. You will be required to rest for several days following your procedure, but most patients can return to work after two weeks and resume their regular exercise routine after one month.
The visibility of your scarring will depend on incision placement and your body’s natural healing ability. Dr. Andreasen uses incision techniques to help minimize scar development. Most scarring is either inconspicuous or will fade over time.
The cost of your Mommy Makeover will vary depending on a number of factors. Implant material, number of procedures, surgical fees, facility fees, and anesthesia fees will all affect the final cost of your Mommy Makeover. Dr. Andreasen will provide a detailed quote during your consultation. Financing options are available to qualifying patients.
General anesthesia is used during your surgery to ensure patient safety and comfort. You may feel discomfort following your procedure as your body acclimates to the new pressure of your implants. Oral pain medication is prescribed to help control postoperative discomfort.
