About the Mommy Makeover
Raleigh, NC plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle works with women frequently who wish to have their pre-pregnancy figure back. Even though childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, it can alter the tightness and shape of various body parts and can leave one feeling limited on how to make improvements naturally. The great news is that it is possible to reclaim a tighter, slimmer figure thanks to the help of the mommy makeover surgical procedure performed at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center. This body contouring treatment uses a blend of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to target the breasts, tummy, and lower body — virtually any area affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc. can be repaired. In addition, nonsurgical remedies can be used to smooth surface irregularities, such as skin problems or stretch marks, due to the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the skin, tissue, and underlying muscles during pregnancy.
The right candidates for the mommy makeover are women who have undergone pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing, and have worked to get a tighter figure through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. For many women, surgery is recommended to get their pre-pregnancy figure. If you have completed childbearing but are frustrated with the imperfections left behind, such as lifeless, deflated breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could help you. Dr. Lyle's goal is to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy shape so you can resume life without additional concern about your body.
"I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Lyle. I first met Dr. Lyle a month ago during a consultation to have my recalled Allergan Biocell textured implants (installed by a different surgeon) replaced for smooth wall implants. The experience from beginning to end was fantastic. I was greeted warmly, and I love that they offer you a warm robe in the exam room. This is a nice change from the usual paper gowns. Dr. Lyle himself is lovely. He's friendly, knowledgeable, humble and helpful. Fast forward a month later and I woke up to a swollen and painful left breast - this is a big concern with textured implants, so I called his office at 8 am and was told by reception to start making my way in ASAP. I saw Dr. Lyle at 9 am. He examined me and decided I needed an ultrasound and biopsy. He asked his nurse to call around and find me an appointment. By 10 am I was in the capable hands of the Breast Center in Raleigh. My biopsy was sent right to the lab.The next day, Dr. Lyle called me with my results, thankfully everything was negative. This experience was very emotional and stressful for me and Dr. Lyle and his team were incredible. I am so grateful for everything he has done for me - what a tremendous advocate! I am really looking forward to being in Dr. Lyle's capable hands through my breast revision surgery in the coming weeks. Thank you so much for everything, Dr. Lyle. It is impossible to articulate my gratitude."- A.B. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

A mommy makeover is a body contouring treatment, tailored for each woman by Dr. Lyle based on the specific body areas to be addressed. Many procedures can be paired together — the most common treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. Mommy makeover surgeries are performed using general anesthesia, and could last anywhere from 3 – 7 hours taking into account the number of treatments. In addition, an overnight stay at the hospital might be necessary. To create an additional glow, nonsurgical skin procedures such as laser treatments and injectables can be administered to diminish facial lines.
What to Expect
This cosmetic body contouring procedure is considered an invasive treatment and can surgically cover a large portion of the body. After a recovery period in the hospital, you will can rest at home with the post-operative instructions we supply. This phase is generally a gradual process. Moving around and walking straight will be hard the first week or so, and a step-by-step, home healing protocol will be needed to allow the incisions and sutures to effectively heal. Most patients find the recovery phase can take about six months. Even though the primary healing phase could take months, most patients are able to return to a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Resuming exercise should wait for around two months. Regardless of recovery time, this surgery at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center can be an amazing journey for women, giving them their self-confidence once again.
