Why is it Best to Have All the Procedures at One Time for a Mommy Makeover

Every year, thousands of Phoenix women give birth. And while childbearing is a remarkable miracle, it can wreak havoc on a Phoenix woman’s body. With sagging or deflated breasts, excess skin in the abdominal region and weight gain in the flanks, abdomen, and/or thighs, many Phoenix women end their childbearing years by living in a body that looks and feels unrecognizable.

Because the effects of childbearing can negatively change a Phoenix woman’s body so dramatically, many Phoenix mothers feel self-conscious about their bodies after giving birth to their children. And for this reason, plastic surgeons like Dr. Meger perform hundreds of Mommy Makeover procedures every year. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of a breast surgery, usually a breast lift and breast augmentation or a breast reduction, a tummy tuck and sometimes liposuction of problem areas, too. While many Phoenix women who meet with Dr. Meger desire to have these Mommy Makeover procedures performed on their bodies, they wonder, “Do I need to get these procedures done all at once?” The answer is, that for many medically healthy and stable Phoenix women, having multiple Mommy Makeover procedures at once is not only safe but a preferred method of plastic surgery for a variety of reasons. Read on to discover why it is safe and preferred for Phoenix women to have multiple surgeries performed in one Mommy Makeover session.

Combined Mommy Makeover Procedures Can Be More Cost Effective.

When you undergo any plastic surgery procedure, you aren’t just paying for the plastic surgeon’s time and skill. You’re paying for the surgical center, the before and after care, the anesthesiologist and the hospital and surgical support staff. If you were to have a breast procedure, tummy tuck, and liposuction on three separate days, you would be paying these fees three times over. However, by combining these plastic surgery procedures into one surgical event – a combined procedure Mommy Makeover – you can significantly reduce the fees you pay.

Combined Mommy Makeover Procedures Are Perfectly Safe When Limited to 4 to 6 Hours on Healthy Phoenix Women.

Most plastic surgeons will agree that Mommy Makeovers with a combination of surgeries performed at once should be limited to women who are medically healthy and stable, to reduce any complications from the procedures. They also agree that the entire combination of procedures should be limited to about 4 to 6 hours of surgical time. Since breast surgery, tummy tucks and liposuction can be performed together in this time frame, Mommy Makeovers with combined surgical procedures are often recommended for healthy Phoenix women.

Combined Mommy Makeover Procedures Allow Women to Recover Faster.

Every plastic surgery procedure included in a Mommy Makeover has a required recovery time period, during which you can’t return to work or care for your children by lifting or carrying them. If you were to split the Mommy Makeover procedures into multiple surgical events, you could be spending a combination of over a month recovering, which is difficult for many Phoenix women to pull off whether they work or are stay at home moms. But when you combine procedures into one Mommy Makeover event, you can recover from your surgeries simultaneously, typically within about 2 weeks. This reduced recovery time makes combined Mommy Makeover procedures very attractive and realistic for many Phoenix women.
