Mommy Makeover Tampa

A mommy makeover procedure is specifically tailored to treat your target areas. Pregnancy causes dramatic changes in the female body that are not always naturally reversible. Weight lost following pregnancy may be lost in undesired areas such as the breast and buttocks. This may leave a disproportionate or imbalanced figure.

There are many other possible results of pregnancy that are undesirable. These may include stretch marks and the separation of abdominal muscles. Other results include diminished or flat breasts, diminished buttocks, and stubborn fat deposits throughout the body.

When to Consider a Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover

Ideal mommy makeover candidates are healthy, and have tried diet and exercise unsuccessfully. They should also be finished having children and breast-feeding. Benefits of the mommy makeover may include:

  • Improved body proportion
  • Balancing of body shape
  • Increased breast volume
  • Return to pre-pregnancy breast shape
  • Decreased fat in target areas

You should not smoke prior to your procedure, as this may diminish your healing ability. Some medications and conditions may also cause negative effects. Discussing your full history with Dr. Mosiello can reduce the risk of complications.


What are the steps of the mommy makeover procedure?

There are a number possible procedures that may be involved in a mommy makeover, making each surgical experience unique. Some of the most popular mommy makeover procedures include:

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Breast reduction

A mommy makeover is typically performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are made in discreet locations near each targeted area. All procedures can be performed in a single surgery or in stages. The length of your surgery and the methods used will depend on your selected procedures and desired cosmetic outcome.

What is recovery like following the procedure?

Bandages and dressings will be applied to protect the wounds and reduce swelling. Compression garments may also be given to minimize swelling. Drains are often left in place to allow the release of fluid buildup at the treatment areas.

Bandages are often removed within three days, and sutures removed after 1-3 weeks. Swelling should subside in 3-5 weeks, and the full results should become visible in about three months. The recovery process may vary greatly depending on the extent of procedures performed.

Will there be scarring following a mommy makeover?

The incision lines from a mommy makeover will vary based on the extent of procedures performed. They will be hidden in the natural lines of the body for minimally visible scarring. Incision lines will continue to fade for up to a full year.

How will I feel after the procedure?

Discomfort following a mommy makeover will be based on the procedures performed and the amount of changes made. This pain may be addressed by the use of prescription medications for the first few days.

Are there any possible complications?

The risks of the mommy makeover procedure depend on the scope and severity of the procedures involved. They may include asymmetrical or irregular appearance and the need for revisionary surgery. With any surgical procedure, there may be a chance of infection, poor wound healing and changes in sensitivity. You will have the opportunity to discuss all potential complications with Dr. Mosiello during your consultation.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
