Mommy Makeover: Mexico Plastic Surgery Options

Having a child is one of life’s greatest joys. However, pregnancy and breastfeeding can also wreak havoc on a woman’s figure. To address the common aesthetic concerns that many mothers have after having children, the leading Tijuana plastic surgeons at CosMed / VIDA Wellness and Beauty offer mommy makeover surgery.


What Does A Mommy Makeover Surgery in Mexico Include?

Often, pregnancy stretches out the abdominal skin, causing it to lose its elastic quality so it can no longer “bounce back” to a smaller size or shape after the excess baby weight is lost. Pregnancy can also cause the abdominal muscles to separate or become severely damaged, so muscle tone cannot be restored without surgical intervention.

In addition, breastfeeding often changes the size, shape, or look of the breasts. The breast skin can also lose its elasticity after nursing, contributing to the look of sagging breasts. Also, many women report that they have lost breast volume after nursing, resulting in deflated-looking breasts. Other mothers notice that their breasts are smaller in size than they were before having children.

The good news is that mommy makeover surgery addresses these aesthetic concerns. A mommy makeover surgery is not a single cosmetic surgery; rather, a mommy makeover is comprised of multiple plastic surgery procedures designed to improve the look of the areas of the body that are most commonly affected by having children.

How Mommy Makeover Procedure is Performed

Mommy makeover cosmetic surgery is generally performed on an outpatient basis, but mothers who need a quiet place to recuperate, or who are visiting us from out of town, can opt to recover from their plastic surgery in the comfort of our recovery boutique. Mommy makeover is always performed under general anesthesia.

Tummy Tuck

During the abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, phase of a mommy makeover surgery, the plastic surgeon makes a horizontal incision in the pubic area, extending from hipbone to hipbone. The tummy tuck involves the surgeon eliminating the excess abdominal skin and strategically positioning internal permanent sutures to tighten and repair the separated abdominal muscles. The key to achieving optimal aesthetic results from tummy tuck surgery is this interior repair work. After the excess skin is removed and abdominal muscles are sutured, he then pulls the remaining skin tight and closes the incision with dissolvable sutures. To finish the tummy tuck portion, he uses a second incision placed in the navel to move the belly button, so it is aligned with the new flatter, firmer abdominal contour.

Breast Lift/Breast Augmentation

The second part of mommy makeover surgery involves breast surgery. This can be breast lift alone or a breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery. To perform a breast lift, the surgeon creates an incision and removes excess skin and fat before reshaping the breast mound as he moves it to a higher, more youthful location on the chest wall. For women who desire more fullness in their breasts, breast augmentation with saline or silicone breast implants can also be performed during a mommy makeover.

How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost in Tijuana?

The average price of a mommy makeover surgery at VIDA ranges from $8,000 to $12,000. This aesthetic plastic surgery procedure usually combines liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast lift or breast lift with breast augmentation. The savings are considerable when scheduling these mommy makeover procedures at the same time.  During your mommy makeover, you will be in the hands of our skilled plastic surgeons with the assurance that you will be taken care of in a world-class clinic with the highest standards of safety.  We recommend you schedule a free one-on-one consultation with one of our plastic surgeons so you can get a personalized mommy makeover quote in less than 48 hours.

Recovering From Mommy Makeover Cosmetic Surgery

The abdomen may be swollen, bruised, tender, sore, or numb after undergoing mommy makeover surgery. These symptoms are expected and will gradually subside. Taking pain medication as directed by our plastic surgeons will help relieve any discomfort after your mommy makeover. You will have a compression garment placed over the treatment area. Do not remove it until you are advised to do so by your surgeon. It serves to minimize swelling and provide additional tissue support while you heal from your mommy makeover.

After the breast lift or breast augmentation, the breasts may also be swollen, bruised, tender, or numb. Again, take the prescribed pain medication to help alleviate painful symptoms. The breasts will also be covered with a surgical bra that you should keep in place until instructed otherwise.

Cosmetic plastic surgery patients will need to take about two weeks off from work and their normal activities. Rest as much as possible and avoid strenuous activity, especially heavy lifting — including lifting your children. You should arrange to have help during the initial mommy makeover recovery phase. Take short walks around the house or recovery boutique as soon as you are able to minimize the risk of developing blood clots in the legs.

You will return to VIDA Wellness and Beauty for several follow-up plastic surgery appointments, so our plastic surgeons can keep an eye on your progress and let you know when it is safe to resume your normal activities after your mommy makeover.
