Mommy Makeover

You love being a mom. From diapers and playdates to laundry and carpool to fitting in romantic dinners with your partner, you care so much that you often put your family’s needs first. Now it’s time to take care of your own needs. Dr. Michael Diaz, who specializes in breast enhancement surgery and body contouring procedures, is a board-certified plastic surgeon who performs Mommy Makeover surgery for women from Melbourne and Orlando, FL, and beyond.

Your Mommy Makeover

As a breast and body specialist, Dr. Diaz is particularly skilled and experienced in personalizing his technique to achieve each of his patient’s goals. Women visiting him for a Mommy Makeover from Brevard County cities like Viera, Palm Bay, and Merritt Island have many different reasons for their decision to consult a plastic surgeon. Dr. Diaz takes the time to listen to each woman’s motivations and guide her through the process of customizing an approach that’s just right for her.

What Procedures Are in a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover typically combines two or more procedures. Dr. Diaz customizes each Mommy Makeover based on your consultation and discussion with him about your cosmetic goals. For example, a Mommy Makeover may combine a breast enhancement procedure such as augmentation with a body contouring procedure like a tummy tuck or liposuction. The combination of these procedures helps restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy appearance, allowing her to once again enjoy a youthful figure with perkier breasts and a flatter tummy.

A Mommy Makeover may combine procedures to lift and enhance droopy breasts, remove belly fat and tighten loose skin–all in one surgery. Dr. Diaz designs these procedures to occur in a single session because he recognizes that busy moms don’t have the time for multiple recovery periods. By combining procedures, he also provides his patients with a way to cut down on the cost involved in multiple surgeries.

Real Patient Testimonial:  Mommy Makeover

“I had a Mommy Makeover, which consisted of a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and breast lift. I couldn’t be happier with my results! Let’s just say, I’m on the up side of 40 and I feel more confident today than I ever have. Dr. Diaz gave me the rejuvenation and courage that I needed to boost my self-esteem. I will forever be grateful to him – he truly changed my life!!!!”

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your experience may vary.

What to Expect After Mommy Makeover Surgery

Dr. Diaz believes in the importance of quality patient care. He believes that with a proper evaluation a Mommy Makeover makeover can be safely performed as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Diaz will send you home with a sequential compression device usual used in hospitals, which provides an additional level of safety while still allowing you the comfort of recovering at home. Once home, one of our caring nurses will perform a home visit to make sure you are recovering well. The following morning you will be seen in our office for a dressing change.

After your Mommy Makeover surgery, you can expect to feel tired and sore and have some bruising and swelling. The discomfort is usually controlled by medication prescribed by Dr. Diaz. You can be up and about immediately, walking in a slightly bent fashion. It may take a week until you feel comfortable straightening out if you had a tummy tuck. You will be seen daily to change your dressings. Surgical drains will be removed usually in 5 to 7 days.

How Long Does It Take to Recover After a Mommy Makeover?

Recovery time after a Mommy Makeover varies with procedures performed and individual factors. In general, you should be able to return to work in 10 days depending on the work you do. Avoid heavy lifting for 6 weeks. Most patients resume all of their pre-procedure activities by the 6 week mark. Dr. Diaz will see you periodically throughout this period to assess your recovery and adjust your activity accordingly.

We understand how pregnancy and motherhood can take a toll on your body and spirit. You can diet and exercise – but even the healthiest lifestyle cannot transform the lost breast volume and sagging tummy skin that often result from motherhood. Discover how Dr. Diaz can restore your pre-pregnancy appearance and boost your self-confidence with a personalized Mommy Makeover like he has for women from throughout Brevard County and other Florida communities.
