A “mommy makeover” is any combination of breast and body surgeries, which are typically popular with moms who want to “get their body back” after baby (or babies)! Common breast surgeries include breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, or augmentation/breast lift. Common body surgeries include an abdominoplasty, liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, or thighs.
Dr. Cindy Wu will provide a comprehensive and personalized consultation which includes a detailed patient history, physical examination, and treatment options. She will tailor each consultation according to the individual patient’s desires and goals for the procedures.
The “mommy makeover” surgery is life-changing for many women who lose their self-confidence due to the changes in their bodies that most often cannot be reversed by diet and exercise. Dr. Cindy Wu is very experienced in working with moms who want to return to their pre-baby bodies and need her help to do that. She provides this surgery for patients in Cary, Raleigh, the surrounding areas of North Carolina, and across the nation routinely with consistently excellent results for her patients.
The mommy makeover procedure is performed in our fully accredited surgery center under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. The procedure length and recovery vary depending on the combination of breast, abdominal, and liposuction procedures. In general, after a mommy makeover, patients may return to work within 2 weeks. In approximately 4-6 weeks, core strengthening activities may be resumed. Swelling will continue to decrease with time. The scars will continue to heal, and will become thinner and lighter in color at around 12-18 months.
