About the Mommy Makeover
Port St. Lucie, FL plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee frequently meets with women who want their pre-pregnancy body back. Even though childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment in a woman’s life, it often will alter the look, shape, and size of various body parts — and can leave one feeling frustrated. The great news is that it's possible to once again attain a slimmer, smooth physique thanks to the help of the mommy makeover surgery performed at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. This surgery uses a blend of fat removal and skin tightening to target the stomach and breasts, as well as other areas affected by pregnancy — basically any area affected by weight gain or nursing can be addressed. In addition, nonsurgical treatments can be used to enhance surface irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation and discoloration, from the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the skin during pregnancy.
The right candidates for this surgery are those who have gone through childbearing, and have worked to achieve a slimmer look through a clean diet with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgery is needed to regain their pre-pregnancy body. If you have completed childbearing but you are unhappy with the effects left behind, such as deflated, sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could be perfect for you. The goal of Dr. Lee is to help you get back your pre-pregnancy shape so you can resume life without feeling self-conscious.

A mommy makeover is a unique treatment, tailored for women by plastic surgeon Dr. Lee based on the specific body areas to be corrected. Many procedures can be considered together — the most common treatments are breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed using general anesthesia, taking 3 – 7 hours based upon the number of treatments. In addition, an overnight stay at the hospital may be needed. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical methods, such as laser treatments and injectables, to soften facial lines and reduce surface imperfections.
What to Expect
A mommy makeover is considered an invasive treatment and can cover a widespread range of the body. After a recovery period in the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest. The recovery process is generally a lengthy process. Walking will be hard the first few days, and a thorough, home care protocol will be required to make sure the incisions and sutures heal properly. Most women regain their baseline energy level at four weeks. Many find the full healing process can take about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients are able to resume a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Working out should wait for about two months. In the end, this surgery at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center can be life changing for women, allowing them to love the way they look and feel once again.
