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.

"Best Surgeon in PSL - I am a very active 52 Y/O female that works in a predominantly male based field. I went too approx 4 consultations in the Port St. Lucie area. His staff is amazing, and they treat you like family as soon as you walk in the front door. Very warm, and welcoming. Michelle, and Dana were awesome. They listen to you, and the results from my mommy makeover far exceeded my expectations. I can not say enough about the staff, and Dr. Lee."- G. / RealSelf / Jun 29, 2021
"30, Mom of 2 & Can't believe I have my body back - Port Saint Lucie, FL - The thought of plastic surgery was not something that crossed my mind until after my second child came along. I am 5'1" a fluctuating 130-140lbs, 36b but deflatted after breastfeeding each kid for a year, and fairly athletic. The day I gave birth to my second child I was 220lbs and looked nothing like the person I remembered before kids. I am now back in shape and exercise regularly and am ready to commit to a mommy makeover to get my outsides to match how I feel inside. I will be getting a breast augmentation, no lift, with 550cc high profile smooth mentor implants, liposuction of the inner and outer thighs, and a mini tummy tuck. The mini tummy tuck I have been going back and forth on but right now am pretty set on getting. I have a very supportive husband who has already requested 2 weeks off to stay with me during my recovery and keep the kids entertained. I haven't even requested off yet. That is one thing I am interested to know, did you use vacation or sick time? I would like to use sick time but don't want too many questions asked. The doctor is fixing a inguinal hernia while doing the mini tummy tuck so that is my reason for wanting to use sick time. My husband actually found this site and encouraged me to join. I have learned so much and thank everyone for posting. I'm undecided about posting pictures."- C. / RealSelf / Jul 16, 2014

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.
