The popular term Mommy Makeover is a combination of an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with breast surgery, usually a breast reduction or a breast lift with or without breast implants. Both procedures are complex and extensive.
The patient’s chronological age is not as important as the physiologic age. If the patient receives medical clearance from their doctor, making sure that heart and lung functions are good, and there are no other medical issues, the patient should be able to proceed with surgery. If there is any concern, it is possible to stage the procedures, doing them one at a time. Safety for the patient is of utmost concern, and all aspects need to be evaluated by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
