Complications Of Mommy Plastic Surgery Package
They include bleeding, infection,scarring, fluid collections,contour abnormalities, wound healing issues/tissue loss, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary emboli.
Most problems are minor and resolve fairly quickly. Pulmonary emboli from deep vein thrombosis can be fatal and are particularly important to take precautions to prevent such as no smoking,early ambulation, hydration, support stockings, and in some cases blood thinners to decrease the incidence.
A patient should be of good health and proper weight to decrease the incidence of risk.
Find a board certified Plastic Surgeon for an evaluation to obtain the best outcome. (Donald Nunn, MD, Atlanta Plastic Surgeon)
The most common complications from mommy makeover surgery depend on exactly what type of surgery you have.
It is best to discuss this with your plastic surgeon so that he or she can tailor the discussion to your surgery. (Grant Stevens, MD, Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon)
A “Mommy Makeover” is a series of procedures meant to rejuvenate a woman after childbearing. It can include a breast lift with or without implants, tummy tuck, liposuction and at times, thigh lifts.
The term does not refer to any specific procedures. It is more of a generic category. To answer your question you need to know what procedures your mommy makeover would include. (John P. Di Saia, MD, Orange Plastic Surgeon)
“Mommy makeovers,” is a marketing tool to imply surgical procedures to improve the way women look after having children.This can be breast and tummy work, or really any variety of body contouring procedures. Complications can include scar asymmetry, unfavorable scarring, hematomas, and infections to name a few. (Steven Wallach, MD, New York Plastic Surgeon)
Complications after mommy makeover
Major or life-treatening complications are uncommon after mommy makeover surgery.However, any major operation involves a risk of bleeding or transfusion, infection, wound healing issues, pain or numbness around the incision, and other complications that potentially could be life-threatening like a blood clot in the legs that travels to the lungs and affects breathing (called a pulmonary embolism).
There are other potential complications that are even less common. The majority of patients having surgery do not have problems but it is important to be well-informed and decide if the operation is right for you. (William Andrade, MD, Toronto Plastic Surgeon)
The complication and risk depend on the specific procedures done with your particular mommy makeover. Breast work has certain risks along with the implants. The risks we worry about the most are bleeding or clots in the legs.That is why I prefer to limit the time of surgery on any one oatients to six hours. If the amount of work required takes longer than that, I like to separate it as two procedures. (Ronald J. Edelson, MD, San Diego Plastic Surgeon)
Complications are possible after any surgery, and may also occur after mommy makeover. In general, bleeding, infection, ugly scars and asymmetry of the breasts are the most common. They depend in part on the surgeon’s technique as well as on the patient’s compliance with the surgeon’s recommendations, but may also occur despite optimal care. (Olivia Hutchinson, MD, New York Plastic Surgeon)
Risk for mommy makeoversComplications can happen any time a surgeon operates. Fortunately, major complications are uncommon. You can lower your risk by not smoking, and limit your surgeries to no more than 5 hours of operating time. Also discuss your risks with a board certified plastic surgeon of your choice. Blood clot prevention is not difficult. All the best (Thomas A. Narsete, MD, Denver Plastic Surgeon)
Any procedure carries with it a small chance for complications. The most common are problems with healing. It is important to not be smoking at the time of surgery.Avoiding having a marathon of procedures at the same time is also advisable. We do not like to have complications either and will guide you properly to avoid them (Norman Bakshandeh, MD, FACS, New York Plastic Surgeon)
The complications of a mommy makeover are related to the procedures performed and you must decide on the component procedures before a real assesment of the risks and complciations can be reviewed.The procedures can involve:
- Tummy Tuck: min, full or in-between
- Liposuction: SAL, UAL, LAL

Mommy Makeover Potential Complications
There are potential risks and complications associated with any surgery. The most common are infection, bleeding, scaring, abnormal scar, hypertrophic scar, abdominal asymmetry, breast asymmetry… and more.I have consent forms on my website and the consent forms go through all of the potential risks and complications associated with each procedure.
That being said, the potential for serious complications can be lessened by having your surgeon be properly board certified (plastic surgeon), the procedure performed in a safe / clean / accredited facility, anesthesia to be administered by an MD (not nurse), etc…
Do you research and choose a surgeon that you feel has the experience and performs procedures in a safe setting. (Tom J. Pousti, MD, FACS, San Diego Plastic Surgeon)There really should be few complications in plastic surgeon patients who are medically cleared and healthy for surgery. Mommy Makeover involves an abdominoplasty / tummy tuck and breast implants and/or breast lift. Occasionally liposuction or other procedures are also performed at the same time. Good luck with your procedure. (David Shafer, MD, New York Plastic Surgeon)
Possible complications after Mommy Makeover
This is a rather broad and generalized question. complications can occur when procedures are done on a patient who is not a good candidate or the surgeon lacks appropriate credential and experience; but complications can also occur when conditions are optimal.Mommy makeover is a general ten used for operations to correct the unwanted effects of pregnancy on various parts of the body. Each operation has a different technique and each surgeon performs the techniques which he or she feels comfortable with. Your doctor should be able to answer your question better than anyone else. Generally speaking, the more procedures that are combined and the longer the operation, the higher the chance of complications.
Each procedure has it’s own rate of common and rare complications which are disclosed to the patient by the surgeon before surgery so that the patient can make an informed decision. (Ivan Thomas, MD (retired), Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon)A mommy makeover, is a nickname for a combination of procedures performed on a woman after having had one or more pregnancies. This combination can vary from patient to patient but usually includes a tummy tuck or liposuction of the abdomen and breast surgery which can comprise of a breast lift with or without implants.
These procedures can be done at the same time to facilitate recovery and minimize operating room time. Complications include the complications typically seen with a tummy tuck and those of breast surgery. This includes but is not limited to infection, hematoma, seroma, loss of skin or flop and need for scar revision or additional surgery.
Publications from the breast surgery can include an infection, hematoma, asymmetry, and a capsular contracture. It is best to see a plastic surgeon with a great deal of experience in both of these procedures. When talking to your plastic surgeon make sure they fully understand your goals and understand how they will combine these procedures to complement yourself and your figure. (Pat Pazmino, MD, FACS, Miami Plastic Surgeon)
Mommy makeover procedure is a set of operationsThe mommy makeover procedure is just a set of operations that address some common post-childbearing body aesthetic issues. Typically, a mommy makeover involves a tummy tuck of some sort, and some sort of breast procedure to address breast and nipple ptosis and diminished breast volume.
Complications are inherent to all surgical procedures. A board certified plastic surgeon in your area will be able to discuss these issues at length you with during a consultation. (Scott C. Sattler, MD, FACS, Seattle Plastic Surgeon)
Mommy MakeOver is not one operation but a VARIABLE SET of combined procedures. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) OR Liposuction (Tummy with or without Back / Hips, with or without Thighs or Arms), Breast Augmentation with or without Lift, or breast Lift Alone, with or without Facial Surgery.
Since EACH one of these operations has a set of complications, the complications POTENTIALLY encountered would depend on the EXACT set of operations you would be having. IN GENERAL, you may have bleeding, infection, ugly scarring, asymmetry, need for further medical or surgical care, wound separation as well as others. These are quite uncommon. (Peter A. Aldea, MD, Memphis Plastic Surgeon)
