There are few things more rewarding and one of the greatest joys than motherhood. Pregnancy can however dramatically change a woman’s body. Trying to diet and exercise while caring for a newborn is difficult to do. Pregnancy often results in stubborn adiposity of the abdomen hips, thighs or back, loss of size and fullness of the breasts and sagging, excess skin, laxity, bulging and stretch marks of the abdomen. A Mommy Makeover can help you get back the body you had before pregnancy. It will help you restore and revive your self-confidence.
Dr. Williams feels that the most important part of the consultation is to listen to you and understand what you want to achieve. During your consultation, Dr. Williams will discuss with you and explain the procedure and your expected results. Each of the possible options for the surgery will also be explained. Depending upon your goals, alternatives, as well as additional procedures, may be recommended. The goal is for you to be fully informed so that you are confident that the choice you make is the right one to give you the result you want.
The surgery for Mommy Makeover is very individualized. There are multiple options. The type of surgery selected will depend upon your present condition, what your goals are and what is most important to you. These options are:
The recovery will depend upon the type of surgery that has been done. The surgical procedures can be done separately at different times or often can be combined to be done at the same time. These options are discussed in detail at the time of consultation.
The procedure is performed at the Plastic Surgery Center. This is performed in a nationally accredited (AAAASF) surgical facility. This ensures that the surgery is done in complete privacy and that it is done with the highest quality of patient safety standards for ambulatory surgery. Prior to surgery, all cases are reviewed in conjunction with Dr. Williams and Anesthesia. Depending upon your present health and the type of procedure planned it may be necessary to have lab work done prior to surgery.
Dr. Williams will discuss with you and give you instructions for before and after your surgery. The surgery is outpatient surgery. That means that you will be able to go home after the surgery. It will be necessary for you to have a caregiver with you for 24 hours after your surgery. This is to ensure your safety and that all necessary post-operative instruction are followed. If you do not have a caregiver, arrangements can be made for this. Dr. Williams understands that patients and their caregivers often have anxiety, concerns, and questions after surgery. Dr. Williams is always available 24 hours a day to respond to you. Every effort is made throughout to make certain that you have a great experience and that you obtain your best possible desired result.
