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 is a master at his craft. He is a doctor that knows his branch of medicine very well. After doing a google search I called the office and spoke with Andrea, she was so understanding and comforting to me that it just made me want to spend the 100 dollars for a consultation. That was the best 100 dollars I have ever spent. From that point Dr. Tamburrino took time not only understanding my issue but understanding how I felt about it. He answered ever question I had and provide the reassurance I needed. What made me make a decision to have the surgery was what he said it is "life changing". I thought how many things in life can you do that actually well change it. He did a excellent job and his staff was very support as well as his wife Anna. Definitely without a doubt use him again getting any procedure that I might need. Thank you Andrea and all the staff and you Dr. Tamburrino."- T.N. / Google / Mar 08, 2023
"Words cannot express how highly my family and I recommend Dr. Tamburrino from Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa! For us, it’s all about the experience, from booking the consultation to post-surgery care. My experience at Dr. Tamburrino’s office has been nothing less than stellar. Honestly speaking, I don’t think the staff would have it any other way. This team operates from a foundation of being a family-oriented office first. The team treats you like a human vs. a client. They get to know you and your family and wow you at every touch point you encounter on this journey. If you are searching for an experienced and brilliant plastic surgeon, look no further, you must have a conversation with Dr. Joe! I went in for a brachioplasty consultation and ended up getting lipo. The results (only two months later) are phenomenal and life-changing. It was the trust that was built during a transparent consultative conversation that gave me the confidence to choose Dr. Tamburrino. He has talked me through the expectations of every step leading into surgery and post-surgery, maintaining my confidence in the process. The after-care has been nothing less than exceptional. The reviews say it all. What else can I say? I am a customer for life! I will, without a doubt, consult with him anytime for any future services. Thank you - Dr. Joe, Andrea, Anna, Alexis, & Susan!"- J.C. / Google / Mar 02, 2023
"I went to see Dr. Tamburrino for my gynecomastia and can't say enough good things about my experience. The staff was incredibly pleasant and made me feel comfortable even though I was very self conscious about my condition. I was awake during my surgery and although I was nervous at first, my nerves quickly went away and had a great time listening to music and conversing with everyone. My recovery was pretty quick and painless and everything healed really well to the point that you wouldn't be able to tell that I had surgery. Dr. Tamburrino made me feel confident in my skin again and can't thank him enough for it. I wish I had done it sooner and would go through the entire experience 100x over again."- T.R. / Google / Apr 26, 2023
"Dr. Tamburrino and his staff immediately make you feel like family. The office is beautiful but you never feel like the pristine surroundings are anything but warm and inviting. I was lucky enough to have met Dr. Tamburrino 10 years ago when I was unlucky enough to need his expertise in breast reconstruction as part of my cancer plan. He always made me feel completely at ease and gave me confidence that I was in good hands. When my daughter decided she wanted to pursue breast reduction surgery, I tracked Dr.Tamburrino down and we made the hour 1/2 drive to his new office in Doylestown. (Yes , he’s that good!) My daughter, who has severe social anxiety, was made to feel so welcome by the office staff and even more so by Dr. Tamburrino himself. We had seen another surgeon prior to this who was on our insurance plan, but neither one of us felt comfortable with the surgeon or the fact that she would not give us any degree of certainty as to what size my daughter could expect to be following the reduction. Dr. Tamburrino (who works without the constraints of insurance rules) made it clear that my daughter was going to be the size SHE wanted to be. He did an amazing job and was so supportive throughout the process . He was available any time of day for questions following the surgery and his lovely wife (who is a nurse in his practice) would call me with support that was more like a dear friend on the other end of the phone reassuring me and guiding me through post operative care. My daughter couldn’t be happier with the results. We are forever grateful for the entire experience provided by Dr. Tamburrino and everyone in the office."- C.A. / Google / Apr 11, 2023
"I am a breast cancer survivor and underwent bilateral mastectomies. Dr. Tamburrino performed my bilateral DIEP Flap reconstructions along with several revisions/follow-up procedures in part related to my deliberate weight loss. He is extremely well-educated and well-trained, with a depth and breadth of surgical experience and expertise and a more comprehensive foundation in general medical knowledge, pharmacology and biochemistry than most surgical specialists. He is, by temperament, thoughtful and cautious and always takes a "patient safety first" approach. He has a genuine respect and warmth for women (traits I relate to the positive influences in his life by his mother and his wife). His surgical skills are superb. He prepares patients for procedures with a thorough, yet plain-spoken, explanation of the details of the operation and recovery along with all potential benefits and risks and takes time for any and all questions. He remains as available to patients through the last office visit of their post-op recovery as he was for the initial consultation. His staff is as dedicated to patient safety and comfort as he is. I always knew that I was in the hands of a good man who is a superb surgeon who has my best interests at heart. I am thrilled with my results. Several medical professionals helped me survive breast cancer. Dr. Tamburrino is the member of my team that made me feel whole again. I am a very grateful to him and his staff."- M.H. / Google / Apr 03, 2023
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.
