Breast Augmentation with a Tummy Tuck
When patients mention the "mommy makeover," they complain about deflated looking breasts after breast feeding and excess skin and fat of the abdomen after childbirth. A "mommy makeover" addresses these specific problems with a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation with or without a lift and are done at the same time. Combining both procedures saves time, money, anesthesia exposure, and recovery time. Baltimore mommy makeover specialist, Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber, performs the procedures in a hospital setting with board certified anesthesiologists. An overnight stay in the hospital helps with recovery from a "mommy makeover" as well.

Mommy Makeover - General Procedure
During a mommy makoever, Dr. Schreiber will perform a breast lift with our without breast implants to increase the volume of the breasts and to lift the areola and nipple to the best aesthetic position. As far as the decision to undergo placement of implants or not, this will be decided between you and Dr. Schreiber prior to the procedure. A breast lift can be done via several different ways, depending on the extent of the sagginess of your breasts. The incision can only be around the areola to a more involved anchor-type of incision.
For the tummy tuck, Dr. Schreiber will perform this next. This usually involves removing the excess skin of the lower abdomen as well as tightening the abdominal wall muscles. Any stretch marks below your belly button are usually removed as well.
Dr. Schreiber performs Mommy Makeovers and other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures at Northwest Hospital in Randallstown, Maryland and at the SurgiCenter of Baltimore in Owings Mills, Maryland. Both of these facilities are easily accessible from Towson, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Pikesville, Ruxton, Lutherville, Howard County, Annapolis, and Washington D.C.
Mommy Makeover - Recovery Process
Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. Bandages are applied right after surgery to aid the healing process and to minimize movement of the breasts and abdomen. Once the bandages are removed, a specialized surgical bra will need to be worn for several weeks. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with the surgery. This pain can be treated effectively with oral medication. Dr. Schreiber will also provide you with an abdominal binder after surgery to help with healing and comfort.
