[00:00:07.440] The Mommie Makeover consists of procedures that address the breast and the abdomen. [00:00:12.760] Standard Mommie Makeover may be tummy tuck and breast augmentation, [00:00:17.986] or tummy tuck and breast lift, or maybe all three. [00:00:22.200] It's called the Mommie Makeover [00:00:23.500] because it's usually done after a young lady is done having children [00:00:28.320] and she would like to correct the changes that have occurred since childbirth. [00:00:34.440] The best candidate for a Mommie Makeover, of course, is [00:00:36.929] someone that's done having children. [00:00:38.846] That they're around 30 pounds from the weight that they want to be, [00:00:42.343] and that they have the support network [00:00:45.040] necessary to help them post-operatively after tummy tuck. [00:00:49.360] The patient to be a good candidate for tummy tuck, like we said before, [00:00:52.629] has to have excess skin of the abdominal area, [00:00:55.914] and with or without the diastasis or the splitting of the abdominal muscle. [00:01:01.800] Does the patient want breast augmentation to make them larger? [00:01:04.670] Does she desire a lift to raise the nipples [00:01:08.129] and give them a better shape of the breasts they already have? [00:01:10.440] Do they want a reduction? [00:01:12.471] Do they want an augmentation and improved nipple position? [00:01:16.120] There's quite a bit of trying to figure out what exactly the patient desires. [00:01:21.640] The recovery time is mainly from the tummy tuck. [00:01:26.120] It'll take you about two weeks before you feel human again, [00:01:29.571] and it'll take you about a month to feel like you did before surgery.
