A Mommy Makeover is designed to help you get back your pre-baby body—or better! We know that bodies change tremendously with each pregnancy and that all the diet and exercise in the world won’t get rid of loose skin or tighten breasts.
That’s why Dr. Kavali offers the latest in breast, body, and skin contouring to her patients, so they can reclaim their Body after Baby.
Dr. Kavali often combines procedures in one setting so that you can get the most out of your surgical experience. Breast and body reshaping are often done at the same time.
And Dr. Kavali offers the latest in cellulite reduction and nonsurgical circumferential reduction: VelaShape! This FDA-cleared device combines the light energy with massage and gentle suction to reduce the appearance of cellulite and reduce the appearance of fatty tissue.
Every Mommy Makeover is customized to meet your specific goals.
After you arrive at our office, you’ll first meet with one of Dr. Kavali’s Physician Assistants, Maggie or Alicia. They will begin the consultation process by reviewing your medical history, establishing your goals for the surgery, and by taking relevant photographs for your medical record.
Dr. Kavali will complete the consultation process by meeting with you to personally hear about your goals for surgery and for a physical exam. This conversation will help Dr. Kavali understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be met.
The consultation time is meant to be comfortable and educational. We want you to feel completely informed, so you can make your own personal best decision.
Because every Mommy Makeover is customized to the individual, there is no single answer to this question that would suit everyone. There are some constants, though: Dr. Kavali only operates in a fully-accredited surgery center, and she has hospital privileges to perform all of her surgeries. These facts ensure the utmost safety during your surgery. Whenever possible, Dr. Kavali uses dissolving stitches underneath the skin. And, the Mommy Makeover has become Dr. Kavali’s most commonly performed surgery!
By definition, a Mommy Makeover is usually a combination of procedures done at the same time. One of the more common combinations involves breast and tummy contouring together. Other women choose to have abdominal and thigh contouring, or breast and arm contouring. Others choose breast or tummy and facial contouring. Just talk with Dr. Kavali about your concerns, and she will help you put together a plan that’s safe for you.
Once all your questions have been answered during your consultation, you’ll meet with Zaphea, our Patient Coordinator, who will put together the financial and scheduling information you’ll need. We never want you to feel pressured to schedule any surgery. Dr. Kavali prefers that you gather all the information you need and take all the time you need to feel comfortable with your decision to proceed. Once you are ready to schedule your surgery, just let us know. We’ll coordinate a surgery date with you, then we’ll see you again for your preoperative appointment, which will take place a couple of weeks before your surgery date. Of course, we know that many people (like our out-of-state clients) have special circumstances that may require their preoperative appointment to take place closer to the surgery date, and we’re happy to oblige.
Be sure to go to the “Patient info” link on this site. You can find consent forms and instructions for each procedure, and you’ll find information about what to do and what to expect before and after your surgery.
