Is It Safe?
All surgeries come with some level of risk. However, due to various factors such as medical conditions, age, length of surgery, and more, some patients have a lower risk than others. Dr. Jonov will evaluate your risk during a consultation. If he believes you have a fairly low risk and are otherwise fit for surgery, he will deem you a good candidate.
In addition to thorough patient screening, Dr. Jonov employs various precautions and safety measures to keep Vancouver mommy makeover surgery as safe as possible. A few examples include using specialized liposuction cannulas, personalized post-operative instructions, and minimally invasive surgery techniques.
Are The Results Permanent & What is The Best Way To Maintain Them?
Generally, Dr. Jonov recommends waiting until you are done building your family to have a mommy makeover. If you plan to have more children, he will likely advise you to postpone surgery until after. This is because subsequent pregnancies can undo or damage the results of a mommy makeover, particularly a tummy tuck.
Otherwise, mommy makeover results are considered permanent and long lasting. Though, your body will continue to age and change over time. The best ways to maintain mommy makeover results include:
- Keep weight stable, avoid any major fluctuations
- Eat well and exercise
- Take care of your skin
- Do not get pregnant after surgery
- Avoid smoking
- Care for surgical incisions during healing
- Follow your recovery plan
