When to Consider Revision Surgery to a Mommy Makeover
Your #healing will continue for 2-3 months following your #Augmentation or #AugmentationMastopexy procedure. There may be some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation will be abnormal. Scars will also be changing.
But, it can be up to one year see your final result. Your doctor may require you to move or massage the implants within the breast pockets during the #postoperative period. #Textured implants do not require breast massage. You will be informed about this at your post-operative visit.
Also, the two breasts commonly heal quite differently so #assymetry is not unusual. One breast may swell more, feel more uncomfortable, or have a different initial shape. After complete #healing, they will be more similar and natural. You must have patience, but if this causes concern, ask questions of the doctor or the nursing staff.
Healing after a #tummytuck will also require time. Some patients are out of bed and walking the night of surgery and every hour while awake. I allow my patients to return to work at one to two weeks with 14 days preferred. However, no lifting or straining. At three weeks, increased level of activity and full with no restrictions, at 6 weeks.
Information that you read online may not apply to your personal situation. All surgical procedures carry some degree of #risk. Always discuss your issues and concerns with the Plastic Surgeon during and following your consultation.The suitability of your procedures and any specific risks may be determined during you #consultation. Also, another element to a satisfying result of your procedures are realistic #expectations. It may be best to wait up to one year to consider #revision surgery.

All the best,
Unhappy with mommy make-over result.
- I am sorry you are disappointed.
- Everyone has excess skin sitting down (if we didn't, we couldn't stand up straight!)
- Comparison with pre-op photos would help as well.
- Overall, you result looks quite good.
- You may need a liposuction and some more skin removed but an examination is necessary.
- It is hard to just your breast lift from a photo - a lift doesn't give the breast the upper fullness that implants provide.
- Why not discuss your concerns with your surgeon and see what might be done?
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.

Thank you for your questions and for sharing your photos. From the views you have shown and from your concerns it would appear that you could have an improved contour of your abdomen with a liposuction and additional excess skin removal. Excess lateral skin sometimes requires a circumferential removal of tissue that a tummy tuck alone cannot remove completely. However, this is something very difficult to determine without an examination. I would recommend talking with your plastic surgeon about your concerns and seeing how he/she feels these can best be addressed. If you do not feel comfortable doing that I would suggest seeking another opinion.
Best of Luck!
good evaluation in person, measure the breast dimensions, the nipple position, the lateral chest fat needs evaluation. Will need liposuction and removal excess skin, better contouring of the waist.
Discuss your desired final look.
Start with your surgeon, and seek further opinions.
Still have excess skin after a Tummy Tuck?
this can be redone if necessary.
