Drainless Mommy Makeover Surgery

Done having kids and unhappy with the body you’ve been left with?

Unfortunately, for many women, the state of pregnancy wreaks havoc with their bodies. Particularly hard hit are the breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks regions. Well, that’s the bad news.

The good news is that Dr. Pratt is a Seattle / Bellevue mommy makeover specialist. The term “mommy makeover” describes an array of procedures that are performed for women post-partum (following pregnancy) to help them reclaim the figure they possessed prior to having children.

What is Drainless Mommy Makeover?

“Drainless Mommy Makeover” refers to the fact that Dr. Pratt can perform all of the procedures traditionally associated with mommy makeover, however, without the use of drains.

Imagine, being free to resume activities of daily living such as bathing and light physical activity, as tolerated, the day after your surgery without the uncomfortable hassle of being tethered to drain tubes that penetrate the skin.

In addition to lessened discomfort, anxiety and inconvenience, Dr. Pratt’s technique of Drainless Abdominoplasty promotes earlier healing between the fat and muscle layers of tissues by securing them to each other with dissolvable stitches, serving as a jumpstart over the often incomplete or delayed healing in patients treated with drains.

Which procedures are typically included in Drainless Mommy Makeover?

Most commonly, the procedures may include breast augmentation with or without a breast lift (mastopexy), abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction, brachioplasty (arm tuck), thigh lift and possibly lower body lift.

What can Drainless Mommy Makeover do for me?

Drainless Mommy Makeover will beautify the breasts by restoring volume (maybe a little extra) and perkiness. The procedure will also tighten and slim down the tummy and waist by removing the excess stretch-damaged abdominal skin, and will re-contour the buttocks, hips, thighs, arms and back as well as lift a sagging buttocks and thighs.

I want a lot of procedures performed at the same time — is that possible?

More extensive surgery can be carried out safely if you are willing to spend the night at the hospital where you can be properly monitored and cared for. If you are interested in quite a few procedures, Dr. Pratt will usually advise you to break up the planned surgery, and have it done on separate surgery days.

How many procedures can be performed at the same time?

The number of procedures that can safely be carried out at one time varies depending on factors such as the patient’s body type, underlying health, extent of body contouring needed and the type of post-operative care that is planned.

Does an age limit exist for Drainless Mommy Makeover?

There is no specific age limit for performing Drainless Mommy Makeover; in fact, we have safely and successfully performed the procedure on Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma and Everett mommy makeover patients between the ages of 19 and 71.
