Patient Praise for Dr. Perez
AMAZING!!! There are no words to express the amazing job Dr. Perez did. I'm 31 and have 2 kids. After diets and exercise still didn't get the result I wanted. So, I had a mommy makeover. Love, love the results. But most important is to have find a doctor that knows what he is doing and is detail oriented. Really takes pride on his work. The best part is that he makes you feel like at home, like you have knowing him forever. Makes you feel comfortable when talking to him about what procedure you want done and what results you expect. He walks you through every detail and answers all your questions. You go home with a peace of mind. The staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable, very caring from beginning to end. I will recommend him to anyone and everyone. If I ever decide to get another procedure done, I will come back to Dr. Perez with my eyes closed. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!View On Google
For years I have been wanting to get a mommy makeover and have really researched for the perfect doctor. I started following Dr. Perez over a year ago and made my consultation based on his work, viewed through the galleries as well as the many great reviews. Dr. Perez is very straight forward when it comes to how the procedures will go and what to expect with the results. I am one week post op, I feel wonderful and am already seeing the results I have always wanted. Going beyond the amazing work Dr. Perez does in his speciality, he puts his patients health, safety and concerns first. I had a hematoma (not life threatening, and a general risk of having this type of surgery) last night, I was terrified and in pain. I called the after hours line that paged Dr. Perez and got an immediate call from Dr. Perez. It was very calming and reassuring when he immediately knew what was wrong and got me right down to the hospital to take care of me. I called roughly around 8:30pm, Dr. Perez called me within 5 mins, and by 10:30pm he was at the hospital to correct the hematoma. Today I am in no pain, but was seen in the office just so Dr. Perez could make sure I was ok...View On Google
Our Featured Mommy Makeover Procedures
Breasts typically increase in size during pregnancy, which loosens the ligaments that support them and stretches the skin. A breast lift can make drooping breasts youthful and perky again. Women with larger, sagging breasts after childbirth will benefit most from a breast lift.
Deflated-looking breasts after childbirth and breastfeeding can also be addressed by restoring volume. Breast augmentation with implants can increase your breast size, giving you a firmer, fuller bustline. Dr. Perez often combines augmentation with a breast lift for optimal results.
Depending on your amount of abdominal fat, muscle laxity, and skin quality, Dr. Perez may recommend a tummy tuck to remove and tighten excess skin. This procedure can also tighten stretched abdominal muscles. A mini tummy tuck may be an option if you have minimal excess skin or loosened abdominal muscles.
Dr. Perez can perform a liposuction tummy tuck to give your abdomen, hips, and flank sexy, sweeping curves. The procedure uses a hollow surgical instrument to remove unwanted fat from targeted areas. Dr. Perez often combines this procedure with cosmetic breast surgery so the upper and mid-sections of your body are balanced.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Another post-pregnancy change can be sagging buttocks. Dr. Perez can perform a Brazilian butt lift using state-of-the-art fat grafting and liposuction to give your butt a lifted, toned, and more athletic appearance.
Are Mommy Makeovers Safe?
Many moms put off cosmetic surgery because they are worried that something may go wrong during the procedure. Safety is of utmost importance at Dr. Perez's surgical practice. Our on-site surgical center is staffed with experienced board-certified anesthesiologists and certified operating room nurses. Dr. Perez follows all standard safety guidelines. For example, fat removed during liposuction treatments of any kind cannot exceed set maximum limits.
Dr. Perez will not schedule several mommy makeover procedures for a patient on the same day, as this can be physically taxing on the patient's body. Instead, he will separate the procedures by a few months to allow the patient to heal properly.
Despite our high patient satisfaction rate, there are very rare but possible side effects that can occur:
- Occasionally, tummy tucks can result in blood clots in the legs and lungs. However, this only occurs in approximately 1% of patients.
- A small percentage of tummy tuck patients may experience minor wound breakdowns, fluid buildup under the skin, or contour irregularities on the sides of the incision.
- 1-3% of breast surgery patients may experience unusual bleeding, while less than 1% develop an infection related to an implant.
- Any change in breast or nipple sensation after surgery is typically temporary. Only 15% of patients have permanent sensitivity issues.
Dr. Perez examines all of his patients the day after surgery so that in the unlikely event there is a complication, it can be diagnosed and treated quickly and efficiently.
Am I a Good Mommy Makeover Candidate?
Dr. Perez can discuss your mommy makeover candidacy in detail during your no-pressure consultation, which can be done in our Tampa, FL, office or virtually from the comfort of home. But in general, you are a good candidate if:
- You do not have a history of blood clots, clotting disorders, cancer, or miscarriages.
- You are not taking birth control pills, which can increase the risk of post-surgery blood clots.
- Your overall health is good and your weight has been stable over the past six to 12 months.
- You are near your ideal body weight.
- You do not plan on having more children and your last child was born at least nine months before procedures are scheduled.
- You have not breastfed your child for at least six months.
How Much Do Mommy Makeovers Cost?
The price of a mommy makeover performed at our Tampa, FL, practice can vary depending on the complexity of your individual treatment plan and how many procedures you receive.
Currently, the average price of a mommy makeover without a breast lift is approximately $13,500. If you desire a breast lift, the cost will increase to $15,000. Prices can be discussed during your consultation, but remember, this is an investment in you.
Our practice strongly believes that cost should not deter anyone from obtaining plastic surgery and the body of their dreams. Therefore, Dr. Perez offers low-interest financing through CareCredit®.
What Is Mommy Makeover Recovery Like?
Mommy makeover recovery times can vary, but patients are generally able to return to work in one to two weeks.
