Each pregnancy experience is unique, and so is the journey to reclaim pre-baby contours and body confidence.

Pregnancy and childbirth can be physically and mentally challenging. While body tissues are incredibly resilient and elastic, some areas, like a protruding belly or sagging breasts, don’t rebound to their former shape. Even after dedicating themselves to the hard work of weight loss, as many moms do, they still feel self-conscious in bikinis, and form-fitting gym wear can be frustrating. That’s because nine months of dramatic stretching can separate and weaken abdominal muscles, damage skin tone, and alter the breasts. You may choose to breastfeed, then discover that size fluctuations have shifted your breasts downward. To feel like your perky self again, you might benefit from a makeover designed to target the specific areas you struggle with. Dr. Tutino’s Mommy Makeover technique can transform how your figure looks, and more importantly, how you feel.

What else can a Mommy Makeover do for you?

One of the most attractive features of the Mommy Makeover is that it’s truly custom. Though a Tummy Tuck and breast surgery are usually included, numerous aesthetic improvements can be woven into your transformation. These include Labiaplasty, Liposuction, laser treatments and more! Another benefit that makes this procedure so popular with busy moms is the efficiency of treating multiple body areas in one convenient procedure. Dr. Tutino’s patients note the following benefits as well:

Increased Confidence
Many people struggle with body confidence issues. Not just those who experience changes after childbirth, but people who’ve shed significant weight may also gain extra skin and sagging in areas where they didn’t notice it before. Dr. Tutino delights in hearing about the boost in confidence a Mommy Makeover gives his clients. They go from dreading the search for something to wear to proudly showing off a whole new wardrobe after he helps firm and lifts their figure.

FAQ - top Mommy Makeover questions

What can I expect in my initial consultation?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Tutino will take your medical history and examine your body, especially the target areas. If you have any questions or if something is bothering you about the surgery, you can ask Dr. Tutino, and he will brief you in detail. Once he has taken your medical history and any prescribed exams and tests, he will develop an individualized treatment plan that addresses your needs.

Is the Mommy Makeover done all at one time?

The number of sessions depends on the amount of surgery that you require. It could be in a single session, or it could be in multiple sessions. Dr. Tutino will inform you about which is preferable.

What are the different options for a Mommy Makeover?

There are various combinations in a Mommy Makeover. You could opt for a breast lift, with or without breast augmentation. You could also have a breast reduction, tummy tuck, mini-tummy tuck, and liposuction. It all depends on the shape of your body and your post-baby goals. Make sure that you discuss your goals with Dr. Tutino to counsel you and recommend the best procedures.

What happens during the Mommy Makeover surgery?

During the Mommy Makeover surgery, Dr. Tutino might lift your breasts. If you have lost some volume during pregnancy or breastfeeding, you could add breast implants. On the other hand, if your breasts are excessively large, they might be causing you some discomfort. In this case, Dr. Tutino might recommend breast reduction surgery. In a tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Tutino tightens your abdominal muscles; this not only strengthens your midsection but also provides a narrow waistline. 

Can I have more kids after my Mommy Makeover?

If you want to have more children, you should wait for your Mommy Makeover; this is especially true for abdominoplasty. Even though additional pregnancies are possible after the tummy tuck, the final result of the Mommy Makeover might not stay the same when your tissue is stretched again from pregnancy.

Will a cesarean section or hysterectomy affect Mommy Makeover results?

No. A hysterectomy or a cesarean section does not affect the Mommy Makeover results. The incisions on the lower abdomen are at the same level as a tummy tuck. Some women have loose skin that covers their cesarean section or hysterectomy incisions. During your Mommy Makeover, Dr. Tutino could remove this scarring and the skin so that you can restore smoother contours.

When is the best time to have a Mommy Makeover?

The best time for a Mommy Makeover is after you have had all your children and have achieved a stable weight; if you experience a significant weight gain or weight reduction after the surgery, it might hamper the surgery results.

I have a hernia. Can an abdominoplasty be done at the same time as the hernia repair?

A hernia at the belly button is common after a woman has given multiple births or a single delivery was for twins or triplets. A hernia can be taken care of by general surgery during the operation, so the patient will not have to undergo another procedure and only have one recovery. 

What are the risks of Mommy Makeover surgery?

Surgeries have risks. It doesn’t matter what kind of surgery it is. The same is true for Mommy makeovers. The risks involve wound healing, bleeding, infection, and the fluid collection, also called seroma formation. Make sure to discuss this with Dr. Tutino during your consultation. 

How can I prepare for my surgery?

Preparation is not the same for everyone; it depends on your medical history, current condition, and other factors--Dr. Tutino will discuss this in detail with you during the initial consultations. The best thing for you to do is to understand the procedure. Know your goals and know what to expect. If you suffer from a chronic disease like diabetes or high blood pressure, make sure that these are controlled before the surgery. Make sure that you stop smoking; otherwise, it can directly affect wound healing. Dr. Tutino asks his patients to be nicotine-free for at least six weeks before the surgery and the same period afterward.

Where will Dr. Tutino make the incisions?

The placing of the incisions depends on the procedure that you and Dr. Tutino have agreed on. Generally speaking, there is a circular incision around the areola which is then brought down toward the fold of the breast in a breast lift. It is also called a “lollipop scar.” The reason is that its shape resembles a lollipop. If you and Dr. Tutino have agreed on breast implants, he can add them through the same incision. There is no need to make more incisions. If you have an abdominoplasty, Dr. Tutino usually makes an incision from hip bone to hip bone. It is made below the bikini line and can be easily hidden. 

Will I have scars?

When we talk about body contouring surgeries of any kind, there is going to be a scar. It is not possible to do these surgeries without making an incision. And when Dr. Tutino makes an incision, it leaves a scar. But that doesn’t mean that it has to be prominent. Dr. Tutino can brief you on how to keep the scarring to a minimum and fade over time. Dr. Tutino is one of the leading plastic surgeons in the field of microsurgery. He uses his vast experience and skills to make sure that there is minimum scarring. 

What should I expect after surgery?

It depends on the procedures that you and Dr. Tutino have agreed on. Depending on those procedures, the recovery time will vary. You could go home the same day of the surgery, or Dr. Tutino might ask you to stay overnight so he can monitor your progress. He might also ask you to stay if there are any medical issues. Usually, a typical Mommy Makeover has a recovery time of 3-4 weeks.

When can I resume normal activities after Mommy Makeover?

During the first week of the surgery, you are recommended to have someone close by who can help you with your daily tasks. It could be a family member or a friend. After that, most women start picking up their lives where they left off. But again, it would depend on Dr. Tutino. He will advise you when you can resume your daily routine.

Regain body confidence after a pregnancy by restoring areas of your body in just one surgery.

aMommy Makeover consists of multiple procedures. Instead of undergoing all those procedures at different times with numerous recovery phases, you can achieve several goals at once. It is often more convenient and gets you back to your life quickly.

Renewed Skin

Stretch marks can be quite visible on the post-baby belly. The truth is many people have them, and they do fade naturally over time. Stretch marks show up on men and women during puberty and after sudden weight gain. If you see stretch marks on your breasts, hips, tummy, or thighs, surgical procedures designed to re-volumize or tighten skin can smooth them out and lessen their appearance.

Restored or Enhanced Cleavage

After pregnancy and breastfeeding, a loss of breast “perkiness” is a common concern. A sudden increase then decreases in size can lead to breast ptosis, otherwise known as sagging. Luckily, there is more than one approach to restore fuller, lifted breast contours. Dr. Tutino may recommend a breast lift, breast augmentation with implants, or both depending on your personal goals. Some women want a very subtle, natural result, while others take the opportunity to achieve the more voluptuous curves they always wanted.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

aA suite of cosmetic procedures designed for the most problematic body concerns is gaining popularity among diverse clients.

It includes various body contouring surgeries performed together for maximum impact and convenience.

Because the body regions most visibly affected after pregnancy are the breasts and the abdomen, a Mommy Makeover often includes treatment for each of these.

A condition known as diastasis rectus is prevalent among postpartum women. Because of the prolonged strain from within the abdomen, abdominal muscles which run vertically can move apart and remain separated. Abdominoplasty allows the surgeon to repair this muscle separation which pulls the tummy flat and the waist tighter. Excess skin and fat can be removed from the lower abdomen, too, and the surgeon may reconstruct the belly button.

Breasts that droop, so the nipples point downward can be lifted and repositioned with a mastopexy. The Mommy Makeover may even include a breast reduction because sometimes the new breast size and weight show up to stay!

Common Mommy Makeover components include:

  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift
  • Breast Reduction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Mini Tummy Tuck
  • Circumferential Abdominoplasty
  • Liposuction

Dr. Tutino also offers additional procedures that may be added to complete your makeover:

  • Thigh Lift
  • Arm Lift
  • Labiaplasty
  • Brazilian Butt Lift, and more.

Note:

Usually, a Mommy Makeover is performed as a single procedure, but depending on your situation, Dr. Tutino may advise dividing procedures across multiple sessions.

benefit 3 of 3 "quicker recovery"

Does your wardrobe consist of baggy T's, hoodies, and yoga pants?

learn about mommy makeover at our state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery centre in oakville & mississauga

do you look at your wardrobe and wish you could wear more fitted dresses, jeans, and swimwear? One of the top goals stated by Mommy Makeover patients is wearing swimsuits and workout clothes with confidence again. Though it is not designed as a weight loss surgery, Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) will typically pull in the waist and smooth the abdomen so that smaller sizes and tighter clothes fit better once you recover.

Who is a candidate for Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover patient has usually had one or more pregnancies and is not planning to become pregnant again. It is possible but not recommended to undergo the procedure if you plan on having more children. That’s because the recontouring results could be negatively affected by pregnancy.

Breastfeeding mothers are advised to visit Dr. Tutino for a consultation once they’ve stopped breastfeeding for at least six months.

If you’ve lost weight, or you simply want to improve the appearance of your breasts and tummy together in one procedure, the Mommy Makeover may be right for you too. Ideal candidates don’t smoke, are in good general health and have realistic expectations.

If you’re not yet sure what your best options are, Dr. Tutino will be happy to meet you, listen to your questions, and offer personalized guidance.  He makes a point of ensuring that each patient feels heard, never rushed, and will be seen by him throughout their surgical experience. 

What should you expect after the surgery?

Mommy Makeover patients often wear a compression garment over the abdomen or other areas for 4-6 weeks following surgery. Dr. Tutino will personally provide complete and specific instructions, which might include:

  • How to care for your surgical site(s) following surgery
  • Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection
  • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
  • When to follow up with Dr. Tutino

What should you consider before a Mommy Makeover?

plan for an average of two weeks off work. The time off you’ll require from work or your favourite activities depends on your situation and Dr. Tutino’s recommendations. Keep in mind that recovering from more than one surgery at the same time could take a little longer. Still, the temporary inconvenience means you’ll only have to rearrange your schedule once, and you’ll enjoy more substantial results.

Help with house chores

Abdominoplasty and breast surgeries require that you refrain from heavy lifting and exertion for 4-6 weeks. In the initial days post-procedure, you may feel tired and need plenty of rest. Dr. Tutino recommends that you have a family member, friend, or hired help ready to take over housework, pet care and looking after small children.

No driving

Pain medication is prescribed following a Mommy Makeover, and you won’t be able to drive until you’ve stopped taking it.

Swelling can take a while

Some results from a Mommy Makeover can be seen immediately, but true, final results may take several months to appear as residual swelling fades. 

No heavy lifting

During recovery, you must not exercise, lift heavy things, play sports, or pick up children. The timeline given to you for various activities will range from 3-6 weeks in most cases, and it’s essential to follow this advice for optimal recovery. Your new shape revealed day by day will be well worth the wait.

What should you expect during a consultation with Dr. Tutino?

Dr. Tutino considers your entire situation before recommending a personalized surgical plan. During your initial consultation, he will discuss the following with you:

  • Your surgical goals
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies, and medical treatments
  • Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and drug use
  • Previous surgeries

Make sure that you provide complete information so that Dr. Tutino can make the best suggestions for you. He will also:

  • Examine your areas of concern
  • Take photographs
  • Discuss your options and recommend a course of treatment
  • Discuss likely outcomes of Mommy Makeover surgery and any risks or potential complications

Dr. Tutino may also advise you regarding:

  • Lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Taking certain medications or adjusting your current medications
  • Smoking cessation
  • Avoiding aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
