Make your body yours again with a Mommy Makeover from Dr. Christian Subbio.
From the moment you become pregnant, your body goes through changes to support not just your life, but the life of your baby. These changes are beautiful, but they are also taxing. Many mothers feel like their bodies no longer belong to them as their breasts grow and lactate to support this new being.
By the time your role as life-giver and milk mother to your child has come to an end, you may be ready to reclaim your body and restore a more youthful shape. A Mommy Makeover in Philadelphia at Subbio Plastic Surgery can be a powerful way to beautifully transition into this next chapter of motherhood.
A Mommy Makeover is a blanket term that describes multiple procedures that are often performed to reverse or reduce the impacts of childbearing and breastfeeding on a woman’s body. For example, Dr. Subbio often performs a combination of breast lift with implants and a tummy tuck with Vaser Hi-Def Liposuction for his Philadelphia Mommy Makeover patients.
However, the exact recommendations will depend on you. During your consultation for a Mommy Makeover Philadelphia plastic surgeon, Dr. Subbio will evaluate your concerns and determine a treatment plan that will combine the precise techniques necessary to achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Subbio is an artist as well as a doctor.
If you have any of the following conditions following pregnancy and breastfeeding, a mommy makeover might be a good choice for you:
You should be at your ideal weight and in good physical health. If you plan to lose more than 15 pounds, you should wait to have a procedure like a tummy tuck since weight loss could cause additional loose skin to develop.
If you are planning on a pregnancy soon, you should postpone your Mommy Makeover. Subsequent pregnancies can affect your results, causing you to need revision procedures.
At Subbio Plastic Surgery, your Mommy Makeover is customized to you. This allows you to choose any procedure or combination of procedures that Dr. Subbio offers. However, the most common surgeries in a Mommy Makeover are:
Your Mommy Makeover is your procedure to customize as you see fit. It is your chance to restore your body (or even do the things you’ve always dreamed of doing), and Dr. Subbio will help you figure out the best ways to make that happen.
You can, but doing so may affect the results of your Mommy Makeover. A subsequent pregnancy could reverse liposuction or tummy tuck results, and the hormonal changes from pregnancy could alter the size and shape of your breasts.
Cost estimates vary depending on the exact procedures you want to be performed. During your consultation for a Mommy Makeover Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Subbio will provide you with an estimate detailing the cost of your procedures. Subbio offers multiple financing options for qualified patients, and we will help you find a financing plan that works for you.
Dr. Subbio believes the most important cost to consider is the physical cost. Surgeries like the ones in a Mommy Makeover require some time to dedicate to recovery. Revisional surgeries to correct plastic surgery are expensive and physically demanding. Finding a surgeon you trust who will get it right the first time will save you far more in the long run.
Dr. Subbio does not cut corners or accept “good enough.” He is skilled, caring, and meticulous, and his 5-star results are a testament to his dedication to excellence.
During your consultation, Dr. Subbio will detail the exact nature of your recovery, including any temporary physical limitations that may affect you as you heal from your procedure. You will have a clear understanding of the demands of your recovery and will be able to discuss those with your family.
Recovery is incredibly important to your successful Mommy Makeover. By setting realistic expectations for yourself and your family, you can make sure that your support group is ready to help you through your transformation. Dr. Subbio has a very comforting demeanor and can help you come up with ways to explain to your children why it will be important for them to “help mommy” through this process.
The particulars of your recovery will depend on the procedures you choose to undergo. All of the procedures Dr. Subbio performs during Mommy Makeovers are outpatient procedures; meaning you will be allowed to have someone take you home once you are cleared following surgery, without an overnight stay in the hospital.
Once you are home, your recovery plan begins. Dr. Subbio will work with you to make sure that you have proper aftercare instructions for each procedure. This might sound technical, but Dr. Subbio makes the instructions clear and easy for you and your family to follow. You will likely experience some discomfort as your anesthesia wears off, but Dr. Subbio will prescribe you the necessary medication to manage it.
Depending on the procedures you choose, your recovery could take between a week and six weeks. Dr. Subbio will work with you to make sure that your recovery is as streamlined as possible so that you can get back on your feet.
Dr. Subbio cares about his patients and is dedicated to ensuring your recovery goes as smoothly as possible.
First, he delivers excellent results at his Philadelphia practice. Dr. Subbio knows that the placement of each incision in your Mommy Makeover impacts your recovery. Every move is mapped out ahead of time to minimize your recovery time and discomfort. He also knows where on the body to make incisions so that scarring is minimized and as imperceptible as possible.
Following your surgery, he will personally check in with you to ensure your recovery is going well. Dr. Subbio has made it a standard practice to call his patients the night after their procedure to check up on their recovery. He will examine you in person on your follow-up visits to ensure your recovery is proceeding as expected.
When you choose Dr. Subbio for your Philadelphia Mommy Makeover, you are choosing a plastic surgeon who believes that each step in the surgery process is an opportunity to provide you with a more refined experience. He has honed his techniques to ensure that your mommy makeover results are breathtaking while making sure you can get back to being “Mommy!” again as soon as possible.
You will be anesthetized during your surgery, so should not experience any pain. There is often some discomfort after the anesthesia wears off. Pain medication can be provided to help you get through your recovery as painlessly as possible. You will also be able to text or call Dr. Subbio at any time if you have questions.
It depends on which procedures. For example, a tummy tuck and a breast lift would have to be performed separately with recovery time in between. During your consultation with Dr. Subbio, he will help you determine your aesthetic goals and which procedures will help you to achieve them.
From there you can work together to determine which procedures can be done together, and which should be done separately. Dr. Subbio prides himself on the quality of his artistic products and will recommend the best way to achieve the highest quality result.
No. None of the procedures require a hospital stay.
It is best to sleep in a position that does not put pressure on the area just operated on. If you have a tummy tuck or breast procedure, you will need to sleep on your back for a few weeks. Dr. Subbio will give you specific instructions and guidelines to make your recovery quick and comfortable.
For the most part, yes, but post-surgical swelling can prevent you from appreciating the full and final results of your procedures for a few months.
That depends on the procedures you wish to have done. Some surgeries require general anesthesia, while others can be performed using a local anesthetic and light sedation. However, you can go home the same day, provided someone is available to drive you home.
As much as possible Dr. Subbio will make any incision in discrete areas and that can be covered by clothes. Scars become less noticeable, flatter, and fade with time.
A tummy tuck or liposuction can improve the appearance of your love handles and flatten your abdomen.
