Is it safe to combine procedures?
Combining surgical procedures has become increasingly popular because you only have to go through one recovery period. The focus of combined surgery is on ensuring safety and minimizing complications. Studies prove that mommy makeovers featuring multiple procedures done in one surgery are safe when performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon like Dr. Levine. This is because the individual procedures have little adverse impact on one another and aren’t negatively altered.

Your mommy makeover may include one or more of the following:
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – You may have stubborn fat, muscle laxity, and excess skin in your belly that persists well after pregnancy, despite your strict exercise and diet regimen. A tummy tuck removes excess abdominal skin, while tightening and flattening the abdomen. Liposuction is frequently done in combination with a tummy tuck to ensure the best possible results. This procedure is considered central to a mommy makeover, according to a study published in the journal, Plastic Reconstructive Surgery.
Breast Lift – Pregnancy and nursing can affect the shape of your breasts leaving them saggy, “deflated”, and often asymmetrical. A breast lift is done by making incisions on the breasts in order to pull and shape the skin so the nipple points forward and even slightly up. Any sagging skin is trimmed away. A breast lift, or mastopexy, will leave you with firm, perky breasts. When severe drooping is corrected, it may also leave you with smaller breasts. A breast lift is often combined with a breast augmentation for that reason.
Breast Augmentation – The effects of pregnancy and nursing can inflate your breasts, but once you’re done breastfeeding, your breasts may rapidly deflate. You may be left with breasts that are smaller than before you were pregnant. That’s why it is common for women to seek post-partum breast augmentation. Breast implants consist of a shell filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. Incisions are made either around the nipple, beneath the breast or in the armpit and the implant is placed either above or below the muscle tissue in the breast.
Brazilian Butt Lift – You have excess fat to spare. Why not move it from the areas you don’t want it to be to enhance your butt. Your own fat can be used to make your buttocks rounder, curvier and sexier.
Liposuction – Excess fat, especially in the lateral waist or flanks and upper legs, is common after pregnancy. Liposuction is a proven method of getting rid of this fat. The incisions are less than 1/2 cm in length and placed in well-hidden locations, so you and other will barely notice the resulting scars.
Labiaplasty (Labia Reduction) – You may be unhappy with what a vaginal childbirth has done to your genital area. It has stretched and elongated your labia. This causes you discomfort when engaging in physical activity and wearing certain clothes. You also feel uncomfortable or self-conscious in intimate settings. Labiaplasty restores the external appearance of the vagina. It carefully sculpts the skin and fatty tissue of the labia. This procedure can be performed alone or with vaginoplasty.
Vaginoplasty (Vaginal Tightening) – Vaginal muscles weaken due to stressful expansion during childbirth. You feel the result: loose, weak, vaginal muscles that can’t control urine leakage. You also have a decrease in sexual satisfaction. Vaginoplasty surgically tightens vaginal muscles and surrounding soft tissues, resulting in greater urinary control and more friction during sexual activity.
