Why Scarpidis Aesthetics for a Mommy Makeover in New York?
Dr. Ulysses H. Scarpidis is a leading board-certified plastic surgeon who is passionate about helping women. He uses the most advanced surgical and non-surgical techniques. He does not “rest on his laurels,” but continues to investigate the latest generation of technological advances in aesthetics to better serve his patients.
The options available in modern aesthetics can produce truly remarkable results without surgery. While some mothers may require surgery to repair and restore the body, some may only require a combination of non-surgical treatments – we use the latest generation of modern aesthetic technological tools to reshape and recontour the body.
Mommy Makeover in New York: The Process
If you are undergoing surgical procedures, such as a tummy tuck and breast lift, you need to plan for several weeks off work. After surgery, the body needs to rest and heal. Plan on having another person, whether a friend or family member, stay with you for the first few days after your surgery. You will have prescription pain medication to keep you comfortable during the early stages. Gentle walks within your home are advised to help with circulation.
You will have several post-operative appointments with us, so we can ensure recovery is proceeding well. You will not be able to drive for several weeks. If you work, plan on two weeks off work. Some tips that will help you through recovery:
- You should sleep in a reclining position – a reclining chair or wedge is more effective than a stack of pillows.
- If you have had breast augmentation as part of your mommy makeover, you will be taught how to gently massage your new breasts to speed healing and comfort.
- Ice packs are beneficial for healing, as they reduce swelling and discomfort. In the first 72 hours, applying ice packs is advised. Reducing inflammation and swelling aids in healing.
- You will be wearing surgical garments after your mommy makeover. These elasticized garments are effective in keeping the treated area safe and constrained for better healing. These garments are typically worn for about six weeks and support your body, so the tissues and skin knit correctly.
The Final Phase: Your Body is Back.
After about two to three months, your restored body is fully revealed. We will be carefully monitoring every phase of your recovery. Once the swelling has subsided, and your breasts look and feel as they should, you will be cleared to resume your usual lifestyle, including exercise. You will need to avoid very strenuous exercise for longer – every patient is different. Our goal is to get you back to feeling your best as quickly as possible.
It is exciting to see your body and breasts once again looking youthful, fit, and firm. Our patients often tell us they can’t stop smiling. After (in many cases) years of feeling less attractive due to saggy skin, droopy breasts, stretch marks, or excess fat and tissue, to finally see your body looking great again is a rewarding life experience. There is no need to live with the damage from pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding: our custom mommy makeover treatments to resculpt, firm, and restore your body can help you restore your body – and feel incredible.
