First steps of a Mommy Makeover

What’s the first step?

The first step to getting a Mommy Makeover in Ottawa with our esteemed plastic surgeons is to schedule a consultation. During your appointment, you’ll be able to discuss your surgical and aesthetic desires with your surgeon. After understanding your goals, the surgeon will provide a thorough assessment of the treatment area, provide expert recommendations, and discuss the pricing.

 If you’re happy with our insight, surgery will be booked and we’ll provide you with pre and postoperative instructions. Because we’ll be combining multiple procedures, it’s vital that you pay close attention to these instructions, as they are designed to help reduce risk and complications.

 Your surgeon will have some specific questions about your health, diet, past surgeries, and any medications you are currently taking. Please be upfront and honest with your answers, as well as your goals. Remember, great communication leads to optimal results for your mommy makeover.

 It is also important that you have recovered fully from your pregnancy. This means that you should be close to your goal weight and that you have stopped breastfeeding for about 4-6 months. Typically, a mommy makeover can be done after a minimum of 6 months after pregnancy, once your weight and body changes have stabilized.

What to Expect on the Day of Mommy Makeover Surgery

Mommy Makeover Ottawa, Canada patients will all undergo varying experiences on the day of surgery based on the number and type of procedures they have chosen. Your surgeon uses intravenous sedation to ensure a comfortable and painless surgical experience.  The specific anesthesia will have been mutually decided upon by you and your surgeon during the consultation. It may range from local anesthesia combined with sedation to general anesthesia, keeping you asleep throughout the surgery.

 Please expect to be monitored after surgery until the anesthesia wears off. The nature of your Mommy Makeover will determine what you can expect during the surgery.


Below, we’ve outlined some of the more common procedures:

Please refer to the individual procedure pages for more information on the specific procedure.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

After your Mommy Makeover surgery, your surgeon will have his staff keep an eye on you until he feels you are free to go. Since you will still have the effects of sedation, we recommend you have someone available to drive you home, as you may feel a bit groggy and sore after the procedure. It’s also beneficial to have a helper available to assist with any basic tasks and avoid putting any strain on the incisions or treatment area.

Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to minimize discomfort during recovery. Your recovery period will vary from patient to patient and will be detailed during your consultation. As you recover, it is essential to attend follow-up appointments so we can monitor your progress and address any concerns or questions you may have.

Although different procedures require different post-surgical restrictions, you can expect to avoid heavy lifting and most activity for 4-6 weeks. You may manage your discomfort with prescribed medications or over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol or anti-inflammatories. We encourage resuming light activity, such as brief walks, as soon as possible to promote blood flow and speed your recovery.
