Best Mommy Makeover in Toronto

Becoming a mother changes everything, including your body. You may notice sagging breasts, a less defined waist, and stubborn fat that simply won’t leave, no matter how many miles you run or kale smoothies you drink. These changes can chip away at your self-confidence, making it hard to recognize yourself in the mirror.

It’s disheartening when the reflection you see doesn’t match the vitality and youth you feel inside. You might shy away from fitted clothes or feel a pang of frustration with each new attempt to get back to ‘you.’ This mismatch between your physical state and inner identity can linger, making you feel disconnected from your own sense of self.

Dr. Bell understands the deep impact motherhood has on your body and self-image. With his specialized expertise in Mommy Makeovers in Toronto, he’s here to help you bridge the gap between who you were and who you’ve become. Through a customized approach that addresses your specific needs, Dr. Bell can restore your body’s contours and rejuvenate your spirit, allowing you to look and feel like the best version of yourself—confident, beautiful, and undeniably you.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a customized combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures aimed at addressing the physical changes women experience due to pregnancy, which often impact their self-esteem. This suite of treatments is designed to rejuvenate and restore a woman’s body to a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing state.

Procedures Included in a Mommy Makeover

Procedures Included in a Mommy Makeover
A Mommy Makeover at Toronto Plastic Surgeons is a comprehensive, customizable suite of procedures designed to address the physical changes many women experience post-pregnancy. Each procedure focuses on enhancing specific areas to restore your pre-pregnancy body and boost your confidence. Here’s what’s included:

  • Breast Augmentation: This procedure enhances the size and shape of the breasts using implants. Ideal for mothers who have noticed a loss in breast volume after breastfeeding, breast augmentation can restore fullness and improve symmetry.
  • Breast Lift (Mastopexy): A breast lift addresses sagging and uneven breasts, decreased breast volume, drooping nipples, and stretched areolas, returning a youthful shape and lift to your breasts. This can be combined with breast augmentation for a comprehensive enhancement.
  • Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): This procedure is crucial for tightening and reshaping the abdominal area. It involves removing excess skin and fat and tightening the muscles in the abdominal wall. A tummy tuck is particularly effective for women whose abdominal muscles have separated (diastasis recti), a common condition post-pregnancy.
  • Liposuction: To fine-tune the body contour, liposuction removes stubborn fat deposits from various areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, and back. This procedure is often combined with other surgeries to achieve a more defined, overall body contour.
  • Buttock Augmentation (Brazilian Butt Lift): This procedure enhances the size and shape of the buttocks using fat grafting. Fat is harvested from other areas of the body (via liposuction), purified, and then injected into the buttocks. A Brazilian Butt Lift not only adds volume but also creates a more shapely and lifted appearance.
  • Vaginal Rejuvenation (Labiaplasty or Vaginoplasty): These procedures are designed to restore and improve the appearance and function of vaginal structures. Labiaplasty reduces and reshapes the labia minora, while vaginoplasty tightens the vaginal canal, which can be stretched or torn during childbirth.

Remember, your Mommy Makeover is not limited to just these surgical options. During your consultation, we will discuss your unique objectives and explore additional treatments that can be incorporated to further personalize your transformation.

Who is the Best Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Deciding if this treatment is right for you involves understanding your health status and personal expectations. While there are no one-size-fits-all traits that define a candidate, certain factors can significantly influence your suitability for this transformative procedure. If you’re considering a Mommy Makeover in Toronto, answer the following questions to gauge whether you might be an excellent candidate:

  1. Are you in good physical health? Your overall health is crucial for a successful recovery and optimal results. Being free from major health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or hypertension is crucial.
  2. Do you have realistic expectations? Understanding what a Mommy Makeover can and cannot achieve will help ensure you are satisfied with the results. This procedure is designed to restore your pre-pregnancy body as closely as possible, improving your figure, shape, and form.
  3. Have you completed your family? It’s best to consider this surgery once you’re done having children, as future pregnancies can alter the results.
  4. Are you struggling with changes to your body after childbirth that diet and exercise can’t fix? If you’re troubled by excess skin, sagging breasts, or pockets of fat that don’t respond to your lifestyle efforts, it might be the right solution.
  5. Are you ready to commit to the recovery process? Understanding and preparing for the recovery phase is crucial for a successful outcome.

You may be an excellent candidate if you answered “yes” to these questions. We invite all those interested in more detailed information and personalized advice to contact Toronto Plastic Surgeons for a consultation.

How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?

As a Mommy Makeover typically involves a combination of breast augmentation surgery, tummy tuck procedures, and liposuction treatments, patients can expect the cost to start from $22,999. The cost of a mommy makeover procedure in Toronto varies according to how many surgical or non-surgical procedures the patient would like to implement in their mommy makeover.

How to Prepare for a Mommy Makeover

Proper preparation is crucial for the success of your recovery. Dr. Bell recommends the following steps in the weeks leading up to your procedure:

  • Quit Smoking: Stop smoking at least two weeks before and two weeks after your surgery. Continuing to smoke can extend your recovery time and increase the risk of complications.
  • Medication Adjustments: Discontinue taking Aspirin or any medications containing Aspirin two weeks prior to your surgery to reduce the risk of excessive bleeding.
  • Fasting Before Surgery: Refrain from eating or drinking anything six hours before your procedure. You may take small sips of water if necessary.
  • Protect Your Skin from the Sun: Avoid sun damage by applying sunscreen regularly two weeks before your surgery. Sun-damaged skin can complicate the healing process.
  • Post-Breastfeeding Considerations: If you are considering breast surgery as part of your makeover, it is advisable to schedule your procedure at least six months after you have finished breastfeeding to allow your breasts to stabilize in size and shape.

By following these guidelines, you will help minimize risks and set the stage for the best possible outcomes. Dr. Bell and his team are here to support you throughout this preparatory phase, so please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you might have as your surgery date approaches.

How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Take?

The length of the procedure depends on the breadth of cosmetic work. However, on average, a mommy makeover in Toronto takes approximately 4 hours to perform.

Mommy Makeover Recovery & Timeline

Recovery from a Mommy Makeover varies significantly depending on the specific procedures you undergo. Here’s a brief outline of what you can generally expect for each type of procedure, though precise timelines and details should be discussed during your consultation with the plastic surgeon:

  • Breast Augmentation: Most patients start to feel better within a few days and can return to work within a week, but should avoid strenuous activities involving the chest for at least a month.
  • Breast Lift: Recovery is similar to breast augmentation, with most patients able to resume work and light activities after a week, but with no heavy lifting for up to six weeks.
  • Tummy Tuck: This procedure requires a longer recovery, typically allowing patients to return to non-strenuous work within two to three weeks and gradual resumption of more physical activities after six to eight weeks.
  • Liposuction: Recovery can vary, but most patients can return to work within a few days to a week, with a full return to normal activities within two to four weeks.
  • Brazilian Butt Lift: Patients generally need two to three weeks before returning to work and should avoid direct sitting on the buttocks for about eight weeks.
  • Labiaplasty or Vaginoplasty: Recovery typically allows patients to return to work within a week, but any strenuous activity or sexual activity should be avoided for up to six weeks.

General Recovery Phases:

  • Week 1: Expect a notable reduction in swelling and bruising across treated areas.
  • Week 3: You can return to work and resume non-strenuous activities. Most patients may stop wearing their compression garments, unless otherwise advised by their surgeon.
  • Week 6: You can generally resume strenuous activities, including exercises that involve the pectoral muscles, as long as they were not directly affected by surgery.
  • Week 12: This marks the beginning of the second phase of your mommy makeover journey. During this phase, you may undergo non-surgical skin tightening and muscle toning procedures, typically at no additional cost, to enhance and maintain your surgical results.

Each patient’s recovery process is unique, and your surgeon will provide detailed, personalized guidance based on the procedures performed and your individual health profile. Please ensure to follow all post-operative instructions and attend follow-up appointments to ensure a safe and effective recovery.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

Risks of a Mommy Makeover

Every surgery has a small chance of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted surgeon. The team at Toronto Plastic Surgeons has decades of experience performing surgical procedures. It’s important to understand that the risks are linked to the type of procedures you will undergo throughout your makeover. Significant complications are uncommon and are expertly managed in the rare event they occur.

  • Infections: Even though infections are rare, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons still take every precaution to ensure that the procedure is a smooth, seamless experience. Preventative antibiotics are provided.
  • Adverse Anesthesia Effects: In some cases, the anesthesia used in the surgery can have an adverse effect on the patient. For this reason, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons carefully review the medical history of every single patient who walks through their doors and ensure, where necessary, a board-certified anesthesiologist is also caring for you during the surgery.
  • Contour Irregularities: In cases where patients do not obtain the results they were looking for, a follow-up procedure can be scheduled to ensure adequate body contour.
  • Bruising: Bruising is typically very moderate, but can occasionally be visible after the surgery.

Non-Surgical Mommy Makeover Alternatives

While there are several non-surgical alternatives available to patients, there is no true substitute for the comprehensiveness of a mommy makeover. However, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons specialize in non-surgical liposuction and skin technologies, including CoolSculpting, SculpSure, Evolve, Vanquish, EMSculpt, BodyFX, Venus Freeze, and VelaShape. These non-surgical technologies will ensure you get a visible and permanent reduction of localized fat.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

How painful is it to get a Mommy Makeover?

Due to the anesthesia administered during the procedure, the patient will not feel any pain during the surgery. While it is normal to experience some swelling and discomfort after the surgery, there will be no extreme or long-term pain. In fact, the post-op discomfort is more external (muscle) than typical internal organ surgical pain, and can be easily controlled with oral medication prescribed by the Toronto Plastic Surgeons.

Can someone get a Mommy Makeover if they’ve never had children?

Absolutely. The surgeries and procedures involved in a mommy tummy tuck are not exclusive to women who have experienced childbirth. Weight loss, without children, can also result in skin laxity and loss of breast volume, with persistent, stubborn areas of fat.

Can I have a Mommy Makeover if I will have more children?

If you’re planning on having more children within 2-5 years you should probably wait, as pregnancy may reverse the effects of a mommy makeover.
