What Does a Mommy Makeover Entail? One Valencia Plastic Surgeon Explains

Dr. Marc Lussier Provides a Look Inside the Mommy Makeover Procedure, Detailing What Patients Can Expect From Consultation Through Recovery

VALENCIA, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2014) - Dr. Marc Lussier, a plastic surgeon in Valencia, performs a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures at Town Center Plastic Surgery. For women who are unhappy with their bodies following pregnancy or dramatic weight loss, he is proud to offer the mommy makeover, which is a combination of contouring and enhancement options.

While he says most mommy makeover patients are finished having kids, the Valencia plastic surgeon notes that women can still have children following the procedure. He warns, however, that pregnancy following a mommy makeover will most likely affect their aesthetic result. During the consultation process, Dr. Lussier discusses the patient's goals and what they would like to achieve from the surgery. He performs an exam, and based on the patient's needs, he will recommend what procedures may help the patient reach their goals.

As noted in his blog post titled, "Achieve Your Summer Beach Body with a Mommy Makeover," the advanced operation typically entails one or more of the following procedures: breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, and tummy tuck. Prior to surgery, many of Dr. Lussier's patients ask questions such as:

  • Is it going to hurt?
  • How much swelling will I have?
  • When can I return to work?
  • What size breast implants should I get?

Dr. Lussier can provide general estimates to answer these questions, but since every individual's body reacts to surgery differently, he will provide more detailed answers when he meets with the patient and as he monitors their progress. For the most part, he recommends patients take two to three weeks off work and have someone stay with them for the first five days following surgery.

Women who undergo a mommy makeover at the Valencia plastic surgery practice can expect beautiful, natural-looking results, says Dr. Lussier, adding that he is proud to go beyond that by helping them achieve the body they may have always wanted. Ultimately, for those interested in cosmetic surgery of any kind, Dr. Lussier recommends seeking a qualified surgeon who is board certified in order to ensure the safest, most effective techniques are being employed.
