Can I have surgery if I’m still breastfeeding?
No. We ask that our Manhattan Beach patients wait until they are finished breastfeeding before undergoing most procedures, including our 360 Mommy Makeover. This is because most anesthetics, pain medications and antibiotics pass through breast milk.
When should I schedule my mommy makeover?
The best time to schedule your mommy makeover is at least one year after having your last child. However, this is a general rule, and Dr. Macias can provide you with personalized guidance during your initial consultation at our office. When you are ready, feel free to contact us at any time to schedule an appointment for arguably the best Mommy Makeover Marina del Rey has to offer.
What are the complications associated with a mommy makeover?
All surgeries carry a degree of risk. Though rare, possible complications after a mommy makeover include bleeding, infection, slow wound healing and more. During the planning stages of your procedure, our Marina del Rey team will talk to you about these complications and teach you how to reduce your personal risk.
