Mommy Makeover – Procedure Overview
We understand that as a mother, you devote an incredible amount of time and energy raising your children. In fact, as your children get older, your responsibilities and commitments seem to ever increase.
Our goal at Richmond Surgical Arts and The Skin Rejuvenation Center is to help you turn back the clock to feel youthful, sexy and more self-confident. We all know having a positive self-image can affect the way we interact with our family, friends and colleagues.

But classically, we’re going to be looking at doing something for their breasts to lift them, and doing augmentation, mastopexy procedure. We’re typically going to be doing something to the tummy to tighten those loose muscles, and do a tummy tuck, and there’s different kinds of tummy tucks, and it’s not a one-size-fits-all operation. And I can offer each individual person, the tummy tuck that fits their body type and their look, because it’s not a one-size-fits-all procedure. You have to tailor to each body type, knowing that you want to keep the scar low, knowing that you want to keep a nice looking belly button. So we follow those goals to give everyone the look they’re looking for.
In terms of liposuction, we’re usually doing some liposuction, sometimes on the waist, sometimes the inner thigh, sometimes on the saddlebag lateral thighs, sometimes on the inner thighs or even on the back, what we call the lumbar or the low back area, on the backside. Sometimes that’s part of it too. So it really just depends upon what areas that you need to be addressed.

And I will tell someone that, I’ll say, “Yeah, I think we’re close, but if you’re going to lose another 10 pounds or 15 pounds, you probably should do that first. Because what that will allow is for me to take out some extra skin, tighten your muscles a little more, and ultimately your result will be better.” If I said, “Hey, go ahead and do it now.” And then you lost 15 to 20 pounds, what’s going to happen? You’re going to now have some loose skin and your muscles aren’t going to be as tight and ultimately your result won’t be as nice.

So the day of surgery you’ll be at the surgery center about an hour before we start, you’ll get all prepared by the nurses and anesthesiologists. I will stand you up and draw a few lines on your abdominal wall. Typically where we’re going to do the surgery. I’ll oftentimes put some circles on your hips or waist or other areas that we may be doing a little bit of liposuction. And so we’ll mark you before surgery.
You’ll have some devices placed on your legs called sequential hose that are stockings. And also we’ll have some devices called sequential compression devices, which squeeze your calves during surgery. And those will be continuously used throughout surgery and even in the recovery room until you go home. And then you’ll go home with the stockings.
A tummy tuck. We do all of these things because it has a higher risk of what’s called DVT, or deep venous thrombosis. And that in itself is a problem. But when that blood clot breaks free, it can go to your lungs or your pulmonary arteries and it’s called a pulmonary embolus. And that can be fatal. So one of the things we do for all our patients is we use those sequential devices and we also put them on a blood thinner. One is called Lovenox. It’s a shot you give once a day. The others called Xarelto, which is a pill you take once a day. And most of our patients take that for about seven days after surgery.
One of the things we like to do is evaluate our patients very quickly and every week. So we are going to see our patients every week for the first month after abdominoplasty. Because it really does have some significant downtime and patients have a lot of questions they need to have answered. And we want to be there for them every week to make sure they’re on the right track and everything’s moving in the right direction.
