Mommy Makeover the best procedure for me after weightloss?
I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.
Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. Ask to see lots of examples of their work and preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.
Be very careful with your decision-making. You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
I hope this, and the attached link/video, helps. Best wishes.
A mommy makeover may be the answer.
Thank you for your question. Congratulations on your weight loss.
Based on your goals, you may want to consider a full abdominoplasty and breast lift.
I'd recommend booking a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to determine what your options would be.

A mommy makeover can definitely help you get the contoured waist, flatter stomach, perkier breasts, and smoother back you’d like. Anemia can be an issue, so it would be best to inform your surgeon before undergoing surgery. I would also suggest talking to your doctor to see if surgery would be safe for you.
Selecting procedures to make up a mommy makeover.
Mommy Makeover After Weight Loss
Combination procedures are safe and very effective in the right hands. The surgeon HAS to be an expert in EACH procedure and must have a lot of experience in performing combination procedures and can minimize the operative time. For example, we work in a team and would take around 4-5 hours for the complete operation. This allows us to get better results with less surgical time and less trauma. Our patients are typically wlking the same day and tapering off of pain medications by 4-5 days. By a week, our internattional patients are generally touring around Cartagena enjoying the sites of this UNSECO World Heritage City. Patients progress to unrestricted activities by 2 months, just as the final results are settling in.
Combination procedures can give powerful results but SAFETY is KEY. You definitely have to choose your surgeon correctly and make sure that he/she has the training and experience to meet your goals with absolute safety. Don’t settle for less than a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with specialized expertise in this procedure.
Body repair after major weight loss
- What an achievement to lose the weight and almost all of it off.\Based on your photos - a breast lift will reposition your breasts - no implant is needed.
- A tummy tuck or a lower body lift will be the best tummy procedure - an exam is needed to see which is better for you.-
- Both of these would be done with liposuction to get your nicest result.
- The anemia is a real issue - you need your hematologist to clear you for surgery and your plastic surgeon and hematologist should discuss your condition before you go ahead with surgery.Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
