Sometimes it is possible to perform two or more aesthetic procedures at the same time, the most famous example being the so-called mommy makeover. While potential benefits such as combined recovery times and cost savings may arise, safety is the most important consideration when combining procedures.
Because mommy makeovers require longer surgical times and because procedures are being combined with abdominoplasty, there are safety issues that must be carefully considered. Dr. O’Connell will review your medical and surgical histories including allergies, medication, supplement and tobacco use and especially, any excessive tendency for clotting.
Because pregnancy and weight loss can affect each patient differently, he will carefully evaluate your abdominal contour in the context of skin excess, muscle separation and fatty excess and also your breast size and shape using tissue based planning where necessary. Together you will review the various options for mommy makeover including both surgical and non-surgical (where applicable) along with their risks, costs and likely potential benefits. You’ll have an opportunity to view educational videos, diagrams, and photographs on TouchMD and we will provide you with written materials to help you understand the various options – and of course, all your questions will be answered.
