WHAT IS A Mommy Makeover?
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino often meets with women who hope to achieve a slimmer and tauter figure, similar to their pre-pregnancy frames. Even though childbirth is a miraculous event in every mother's life, it will inevitably alter the tightness and shape of certain areas, which can leave one to feel frustrated with their more lax body line. Women who have felt the negative physical and emotional effects of childbirth may be ecstatic to discover that it is possible to attain a slim and taut appearance once more with the help of a mommy makeover surgical plan, which is frequently performed at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa. The mommy makeover procedure blends a number of surgical — and sometimes nonsurgical — treatments, including liposuction and skin removal to reshape both the upper body (like the arms and breasts) and lower body (such as the tummy). Virtually any area affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc., can be addressed. Furthermore, nonsurgical treatments can be performed to correct surface imperfections (such as skin problems or stretch marks) caused by the quick stretching and fluctuation of the skin during pregnancy.
"Dr. Tamburrino and his staff are truly amazing! He’s not only the best surgeon in the game, but also cares about his patients. He’s our family surgeon for many things and have had nothing but amazing results! Highly recommend this practice. 👌🏼"- W.J. / Google / Dec 02, 2022
"I’ve been getting Dysport on and off for over 10 years. Dr. Tamburrino had been doing my injectables consistently for 5 years. He treats my wrinkles and neckbands with Dysport. He has kept me youthful and very natural looking by replacing lost volume (fat loss from aging) with filler in my face. It took a lot of trust in my doctor for me to get filler in my face. I am so thankful for his knowledge and skills. I would only go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like him for my filler and Dysport! He takes his time to explain everything in detail which makes you feel comfortable and ready for treatment. I recommend JoeTMD to all my family and friends. Everyone is extremely happy with their results! I also see Susan for my skin care. Susan is the best Medical Aesthetician! I’ve been seeing her for almost 2 years. She has changed my skin for the best! With her advanced treatments like Dermaplanes, laser hair removal, Hydrafacial, Vi-Peels, and great medical grade skin care products that work, my skin feels 10 years younger. Overall with injectables and skincare Tamburrino Plastic Surgery and Med Spa can be your one stop shop for youthful skin!"- A.M. / Google / Nov 30, 2022

"The staff could not have been more kind and helpful. My teenage daughter had a medical issue that needed immediate attention. After calling 5 plastic surgeons on a Friday afternoon, Dr. Tamburrino was the only one who said he would see her immediately. He could not have been nicer and treated my daughter with such care. She is doing great and I am so appreciative! It's a very warm and welcoming environment. Thank you again for taking care of my daughter."- R.S. / Google / Nov 19, 2022

WHO GETS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
The right candidates for mommy makeover surgical treatment plans are mothers who have bore children and have worked to attain a toned, slimmer appearance through diet and exercise with little result. For many women, surgery is needed to once again achieve their pre-pregnancy figure. If you have completed childbearing, but you are unhappy with the effects left behind on your frame, such as lifeless, deflated breasts, loose abdominal skin, or undesirable areas of fat in the lower back, flanks, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could certainly help you and restore your confidence.
HOW IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER DONE?
A mommy makeover is a unique surgery that is individually tailored for women by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Tamburrino based on the areas of concern to be corrected. A variety of procedures can be performed together, the most popular of which being a breast lift with or without implants, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and liposuction. These surgeries are performed using general anesthesia, lasting anywhere from 3 – 7 hours, depending upon the complexity. Additionally, a day-long stay at the hospital might be necessary if you have undergone several surgeries. It's also common to incorporate nonsurgical techniques, such as injectables or laser treatments, to soften facial wrinkles and diminish surface issues.
What to Expect
After a recovery period in the hospital, you will be sent to heal at home. During this time, you will need to follow your detailed post-operative instructions and get plenty of rest. The recovery process is generally a lengthy process. Standing upright will be difficult the first week or so and a carefully followed, at-home healing protocol will be required to ensure the incisions and sutures heal properly. The majority of women find that the healing process can take about six months. Even while the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to get back to a normal routine within several weeks. Exercise should be avoided for approximately two months. In the end, this surgery at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa can be life-changing for women and provide them with renewed self-esteem once again.
What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?
For many women, the first few months after giving birth can be a time of great joy and excitement. However, those feelings are often quickly replaced by frustration or embarrassment as their bodies change. Regardless of how long it's been since you gave birth, your body may need a little help readjusting back to its original shape. Consider getting a mommy makeover at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Doylestown, PA. A mommy makeover can help give you back your pre-pregnancy figure. If done correctly by an experienced surgeon like Dr. Tamburrino, you can expect to have amazing results with minimal downtime.
MOMMY MAKEOVER SURGERY FAQS
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Tamburrino, he will learn about your needs and concerns before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can give you suggestions on what to include in your mommy makeover. Often, women select a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift), plus liposuction and a body lift.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on your body so nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to produce noticeable improvements. In your consultation, Dr. Tamburrino will go over both nonsurgical and surgical options. Depending on your needs and goals, he will tell you if treatments like nonsurgical fat reduction (including CoolSculpting), surgical vaginal rejuvenation, or nonsurgical skin tightening may be helpful.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover creates a beautiful, tight shape, it does leave behind some scarring. Dr. Tamburrino will utilize delicate and advanced techniques to create clean, small incisions. Most scars will be placed so they can be easily concealed beneath swimsuits and underwear. As part of your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Tamburrino or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care so your incisions heal flat and eventually fade. The majority of patients find scars to be a small price to pay for the wonderful impacts the mommy makeover treatment plan has on their body, confidence, and quality of life.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete so the surgical results aren't compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for changing if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. If you get pregnant after your mommy makeover, another surgery can be done to refresh your results.
