Am I a candidate for a mommy makeover?
Women who are not planning any more pregnancies, who are in good health and who want to regain their pre-pregnancy shape are good candidates for this combination of procedures. More specifically, women who want to restore lost volume and lift to their breasts and who want to substantially reduce stretch marks and extra skin and fat in the abdomen are good candidates for a Mommy Makeover.
A Mommy Makeover is not intended to replace a healthy weight loss program if there is still significant weight to lose. In addition, women who are unsure whether they will want future babies should postpone the procedure to avoid having to redo it in the future.
Specifically tailor-made for each woman
This tailor made combination of procedures is specifically designed to address the unique issues of each patient. Some women may have only one area they are having trouble with, such as a flabby tummy but most have at least two areas that need rejuvenation. The most common reasons to have a Mommy Makeover are to flatten the tummy, to remove stretch marks and to raise and restore volume to sagging breasts.
Combining Mommy Makeover procedures decreases recovery time
Some procedures can be combined during one surgery which greatly reduces recovery time and accelerates the final result. Dr. Birely is a top provider of Mommy Makeover surgery in Baltimore. He plans each surgery to accomplish the goals of his patient in as few procedures as is safely possible. Not only does this greatly speed overall recovery time, it reduces the risks associated with multiple surgeries such as exposure to anesthesia.
The procedures that are most commonly combined are a tummy tuck with breast augmentation with or without a breast lift. Liposuction is used as needed to further sculpt the feminine curves that have been lost. Some women also need liposuction in other areas such as the upper arms, thighs and buttocks to complement the core aspects of their unique Mommy Makeover. Dr. Birely is ready to help you achieve your idea body shape.

A smooth recovery requires organization
Proving our Mommy Makeover Baltimore patients with the best care one can hope for requires planning on the part of the patient as well the surgeon. While Dr. Birely will manage the surgery and immediate post operative recovery, planning must be done for the first weeks of at home recovery.
For many women seeking a Mommy Makeover, caring for their children is still a major part of life. If there are toddlers and preschool age children in the family, support during the first few weeks of recovery is vital. Lifting children, driving and shopping for groceries will need to be delegated to others for the first few weeks at a minimum.
A good post surgical recovery plan includes having as many routine chores done before surgery as possible. This would include grocery shopping, arranging for pet care such as a dog walker, paying bills, filling medication prescriptions, and any other routine tasks that are usually done.
Another key to a smooth recovery would be to set up the recovery area so that necessary items are close to hand. Items like a TV remote, books, tissues, medication, ice packs etc., should be within arm’s reach. It is helpful to set up the recovery area to avoid stairs particularly when a tummy tuck is part of the Mommy Makeover.
