Baltimore mommy makeover patients can now take advantage of a new medicine that is injected into the muscles of the belly and into the skin around the incisions to ease the pain considerably after a breast augmentation/lift and tummy tuck. These are the two procedures commonly performed as parts of the Baltimore mommy makeover. The new medicine is called Exparel and it's wonderful! The pain control lasts up to 3 days in many clinical studies. Along with an oral pain medication and following the post-operative instructions of your Baltimore plastic surgeon, your aftercare can be made much more comfortable. A mommy makeover is very common for women who are finished having children and who want to get back the pre-baby body. The breast portion of the procedure includes a lift and/or an augmentation. These procedures can restore lost volume to the breasts and can give them a much more aesthetic appearance. Breast implants can be either silicone or saline, depending upon patient preference. The tummy tuck portion of the case can remove excess skin from the belly including stretch marks! Also, the muscles are tightened in order to give belly a much flatter appearance. Visit with your Baltimore cosmetic surgeon to learn more about Exparel and how it can help you achieve your aesthetic goals with little discomfort!
