Including a Brazilian Butt Lift with a Mommy Makeover

The Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures to bring a woman’s body back to the way she looked prior to pregnancy. Most commonly some variation of a #TummyTuck and #BreastSurgery are performed. Additional procedures can include liposuction, umbilical hernia repair.  The most common #breastprocedures include #mastopexy or #breastlift, #breastaugmentation, or #breastreduction.  

#Combined operations are often performed with our #Gynecology colleagues. Tubal ligation is a common post pregnancy procedure which is done at the time of many of the surgeries included with a #MommyMakeover. If you require a gynecologic operation or study (laparoscopy) and are considering a plastic surgery procedure, discuss these issues with your physician and board-certified plastic surgeon. Also, combining these #procedures may decrease anesthetics, costs, and recovery time.

Many procedures can be combined. Cosmetic procedures such as Brazilian Butt Lift (#BBL), Thigh Lift (#TL) and Mommy Makeover (#MMO), which usually concentrates on the breast and abdomen areas, may be combined together. However, I look at the risk factors such as surgery time greater than 6 hours, or #anesthesia time, increased risks of DVT, prolonged  #healing, #positioning after surgery to name a few, which are a lot to consider. These factors are relative to performing any variety of combinations.  
Your procedures should be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for a revision surgery. It is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.

Mommy Makeover and BBL

Yes, a BBL can be included as part of a Mommy Makeover.Generally speaking, increasing the number of simultaneous procedures decreases surgical risk because you only need to be under anesthesia once; however, more procedures increases both operative time and recovery time.Your surgeon will let you know how many procedures he or she feels comfortable performing simultaneously based on your medical back and general health.You should probably plan on taking at least 2-3 weeks off work.

Gluteal augmentation can be part of a mommy makeover.

The general answer to your question is yes. Depending on the other components of the mommy makeover in your overall health adding this to the operative list may be a bit much. This is something to be discussed with your surgeon.

Mommy Makeover and BBL combination

Mahalo for your inquiry.  If your general health is good, bodysculpting procedures may be combined.  We will consider recycling your unwanted diet resistant fat from the abdomen and flanks with fat and stem cell transfers to the buttocks while shaping your back and waist.  Logistically, we may suggest staging the procedures if you will need to lie on the buttocks and flex your hips to accomodate tension across the front of the body.  Recovery positions would need to be evaluated so we can achieve the best possible results for all areas involved.  Seek several consultations with qualified surgeons before make your decision.

Mommy Makeover - BBL at same time?

Thank you for your question. A BBL can be performed at the same time as a mommy makeover. However, it is difficult to comment on what other procedures would be best for you without photos. Please meet with a board certified plastic surgeon who commonly performs these procedures for more detailed information. Hope this helps and good luck!

Combining procedures

This is commonly done. You will need to be seen in person to determine what can be done safely. Definitely seek out a board certified plastic surgeon in your area with an expertise in BBL and tummy tuck surgery for a consultation. Be sure to express your expectations and goals to the surgeon you choose. Good luck!

Mommy Makeover & BBL together?

Yes, a Mommy Makeover can be performed at the same time as a BBL. However, you will need to be assessed in person by your surgeon in order to determine whether or not it is a safe option for you specifically.

Breast lift with tummy tuck for mommy makeover

I am assuming that you are inquiring about a mommy makeover that will include a tummy tuck (with or without additional liposuction) with a breast lift.  Mommy makeovers (which is usually a tummy tuck combined with a breast procedure (either a breast augmentation, a breast lift or both) are very popular and very commonly done.  Whether or not you would be a candidate for having a combination of a breast lift and tummy tuck will depend on how healthy you are, how overweight you are, how long the your procedures will take, how motivated you are to put up with the recovery of 2 body regions and how comfortable your surgeon feels with his skill set and experience working with your body type.  The breast lift is relatively easy to recover from as it is not too painful and has a fairly quick recovery period.  The tummy tuck is usually what takes the longest time to recovery from.  Most patients require around 2 weeks off work if your job does not require too much strenuous physical activity.  Most patients wait about 4 weeks before they really start exercising.  Most surgeons have their patients wait several months before they start doing abdominal exercises again depending on how much abdominal fascial plication (tightening) they had and how obese they were to begin with.  

The costs will usually depend on what type of breast lift  you need, how big you are (which will determine how much liposuction you need and how much skin we have to remove) and how many areas of liposuctioning you need.  The only way to get a good estimate is to see a few board certified plastic surgeons who can examine you and discuss your needs.  You will want so choose someone how also has a lot of experience, has a good reputation, is in good standing with the medical community and local hospitals, and some one who you feel has your health and best interest at heart and can show you a lot of really good before and after photos of their previous patients.  Also make sure that where ever your surgery is performed, that the facility if fully accredited by AAAASF or JCAHO, the gold standards in surgical facility accreditation for quality and safety.

Best wishes.
