Successive pregnancies and breastfeeding, as well as weight loss and gain, can drastically alter a woman’s body. You may be displeased with these changes and the Mommy Makeover can help you get your pre-pregnancy body back or a body more to your liking.
As its name suggests, it is a full makeover that will drastically change a woman’s body by combining multiple cosmetic surgeries performed together during one operation.
To prepare for the consultation, compile all relevant health information (list of medications, doctors’ reports, list of previous surgeries, mammogram reports, breast biopsies, etc.)
What happens in a consultation?
Dr. Boudana will ask about your medical history and family history of breast cancer.
During the consultation, Dr. Boudana will carefully listen to you and pay special attention to your expectations. This is a large part of the consultation.
The Mommy Makeover is a dramatic operation and it is therefore important for Dr. Boudana to understand your wishes so he can achieve the desired results as best as possible.
However, not all goals are realistic, and it is important to understand what surgery can and cannot accomplish.
Dr. Boudana will examine the parts of the body that will be altered and assess all the factors that can influence the aesthetic result. These include the size and shape of your natural breasts, skin and gland quality, the position and size of your nipples and areolas, fat distribution in the body, and tissue quality in the areas to be treated.
Dr. Boudana will then photograph your body from different angles and place these photographs in your medical record. These photographs will be kept strictly confidential.
He will then take a 3D scan of your breasts and body and create simulations to illustrate the potential result. A virtual reality simulation is also offered.
The operation is performed under general anaesthesia and lasts between 3 hours and 5 hours. It usually combines breast surgery and body reshaping surgery (liposuction, abdominoplasty, Brazilian butt lift, etc.).
This surgery is customized to your desires and needs, so long as the combination of procedures requested is safe.
The Mommy Makeover typically includes:
– Breast augmentation and/or mastopexy (breast lift) with abdominal liposuction;
– Breast augmentation and/or mastopexy (breast lift) with abdominoplasty (tummy tuck);
– Breast augmentation and/or mastopexy (breast lift) with Brazilian butt lift;
– Breast fat injection and abdominal liposuction.
Following the operation, you will need someone to take you home and help and monitor you for the first 24 hours.
Where is the procedure performed?
Dr. Boudana only operates on patients in private state-of-the-art operating rooms accredited by Accreditation Canada. This accreditation is a guarantee that the facilities meet stringent safety and quality standards.
Dr. Boudana’s patients have the choice of having their surgery done in Laval or in Saguenay.
After the surgery
After the surgery, you will receive a personalized follow-up. Our nurses will also be available and will perform the first dressing change at our clinic, typically one week after surgery.
You will be given a postoperative instruction sheet when you are discharged as well as a prescription for pain medication.
All our follow-up appointments are free of charge for the first year after your surgery.
With hundreds of Mommy Makeovers performed and over 10 years of experience, Dr. Boudana has developed extensive expertise in the field. He will listen, guide, and advise you in achieving your goal.
