A mommy makeover is a combination of two or more plastic surgeries addressing the breasts and abdomen. However, other parts of the body are sometimes involved. When considering a serious surgery such as a mommy makeover, patients often wonder if it will be or can be done at once. Let’s dive deeper into the question, “Is a mommy makeover done at once?”
In most circumstances, a mommy makeover is performed in one surgical session. However, there are exceptions. First, if a patient is a surgical candidate, but may not be ideal for a longer session, Dr. Allegra may recommend splitting it into two. Secondly, if there are more than two or three procedures, Dr. Allegra may advise splitting it up.
In healthy patients, the average mommy makeover surgery only involves one surgical session. This reduces overall recovery time than if the surgery was split. It can also save money in the long run since you are only paying for one anesthesia session. Though, it is important to note that it is not always safe or best to perform so much surgery at once and splitting is not always avoidable.
