Centrally located in Southampton and serving Philadelphia, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties, the Kole Plastic Surgery Center performs mommy makeovers for patients desiring plastic surgery.
The Mommy Makeover: Return Your Body to Pre-Pregnancy Appearance
Many patients, especially women who are done with childbearing, are interested in having both breast and body lifting procedures simultaneously. We refer to this procedure as the Mommy Makeover. After pregnancy and birth, a woman may experience significant weight loss, resulting in greater overall health, but also sagging breasts, extra skin, and fatty tissue on the lower abdomen. This revolutionary Mommy Makeover procedure allows the patient to go through just one procedure and recovery.
What Is the Mommy Makeover?
The Mommy Makeover consists of a few parts to create a masterful whole. A mastopexy procedure is performed to lift the breasts, sometimes with the aid of implants. An abdominoplasty improves the abdominal area by removing excess skin and unwanted fatty tissue. If desired, the thigh and buttock areas can also be improved. By choosing to have these procedures simultaneously, the effect is rejuvenation of the total body.

Before the Procedure
Before the surgery, you will visit Dr. Kole for a Mommy Makeover consultation to determine your goals and candidacy for the procedure. In general, you should be in good health since the procedure requires general anesthesia. Dr. Kole will explain the entire procedure to you, discuss your options, and help you decide whether a Mommy Makeover is likely to produce the results you desire. Many combinations of procedures are available to address your specific desires and while in consultation with Dr. Kole, he can educate you on your options and find a surgical combination that is right for you!
Preparation for Surgery
If you smoke, you should quit several weeks before your surgery. To reduce the chance of excess bleeding, you should also avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs and supplements before your surgery. Since you will be under general anesthesia during your surgery, you will need to arrange for someone to drive you to and from our surgical center or the hospital and to stay with you for the night of your procedure.
During the Mommy Makeover
At the beginning of the Mommy Makeover with Dr. Kole in Philadelphia and Bucks County, anesthesia medication will be administered by board certified anesthesiologist. This anesthesia will help you remain comfortable and pain free throughout the procedure.
Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Kole will perform the combination of procedures that you and he have decided will create the desired results. The surgery time will vary based on the procedures desired. Once all the procedures are completed, the incisions are closed and you are awakened from your procedure and transferred to the recovery room where certified registered nurses will aid in your initial recovery.
After the Procedure
We will provide aftercare instructions for you to follow during your recovery period, including guidelines for changing dressings, showering, and walking. You will need to take at least one to two weeks off from work for the initial recovery from a Mommy Makeover. During the first few days of recovery, some discomfort is normal and can be minimized by appropriate icing and taking the prescription pain medication provided. We will schedule any necessary follow-up appointments so we can make sure your recovery is going smoothly.
Mommy Makeover Surgery Results
Although a slimmer midsection and fuller, shapelier breasts will be noticeable right away, it may take several weeks for all swelling to diminish and for scars to fade before the full results of your Mommy Makeover will be evident. After a healing period, patients are typically very pleased with their new, slimmer profiles.
