What is the goal of a Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover is uniquely tailored to each patient with the goal of rejuvenating and tightening the body following dramatic weight loss, pregnancy and/or lactation. Pregnancy may produce a thicker waistline, stretch marks, weakened abdominal muscles, sagging breasts, loose sagging skin in the abdominal region, and other aesthetic changes. The mommy makeover combines several procedures to address these concerns, restoring a tight, firm abdomen, a slimmer waistline, and improved body contour in the torso. The mommy makeover may include a combination of any of the following procedures:
- Breast Enhancement
If pregnancy and lactation, dramatic weight loss, or the aging process have affected the shape and size of your breasts, causing sagging and loss of volume, a breast enhancement procedure, such as breast augmentation and/or a breast lift, can help you restore fullness and firmness to your breasts.
- Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck procedure may be your ideal solution to eliminate stretch marks, sagging skin, scars from a C-section or other surgery while tightening weakened abdominal muscles and slimming the waistline.
Liposuction is often included as part of a mommy makeover to smooth away any accumulated fatty deposits and bulges in areas not affected by the tummy tuck or breast enhancement.
What type of results can I expect from a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover provides a complete rejuvenation and slimming of the torso while lifting and enhancing the breasts. The procedure may even improve or enhance your pre-pregnancy shape, increasing volume and firmness in the breasts, smoothing away fatty deposits from thighs, hips, waist, buttocks and other areas, and eliminating sagging skin from the abdomen and thighs. Our state-of-the-art procedures achieve natural-looking, long-lasting results.
Who is the ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
You don’t have to be a mom to be a good candidate for a mommy makeover! Any adult woman in good health who is not currently pregnant or lactating, nor planning to become pregnant in the future, may benefit from this comprehensive cosmetic procedure. If you are planning a family in the future, we recommend postponing the procedure until after you are finished with pregnancy and lactation.
Does the Mommy Makeover require an extensive recovery?
The advantage of a combined procedure, such as the mommy makeover, is that you will have a reduced recovery period since you can recover from various procedures at the same time. Immediately after the surgery, you will need someone to drive you home and help with basic care while you rest fully. You may experience soreness and swelling, although these symptoms subside naturally after a few days. You must wear compressive support garments following your surgery to fully support your new shape, protect sensitive tissue, and reduce swelling and discomfort. These garments also assist the healing process. Most patients resume normal non-strenuous activities within one to two weeks after surgery. Our office will provide detailed post-operative care instructions that you must follow closely, such as refraining from strenuous exercise and other activities, including sex, for a period of four to six weeks, depending on the extent of your procedure and how quickly you heal. Our team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and provide support throughout your recovery period.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a totally customized procedure aimed at rejuvenating the entire torso after pregnancy, lactation, significant weight loss, or simply the effects of aging. Many of our female patients find that pregnancy causes sagging breasts, loose and sagging skin, stretch marks, a thicker waist, and weakened abdominal muscles. Additionally, even strict exercise and diet may not be enough to make your body look the way it did before your pregnancy. Unfortunately, many of the effects of pregnancy are long-lasting and can damage your self esteem for years to come. A Mommy Makeover can address any and all of these issues and give you a thinner waistline and firmer breasts while correcting the appearance of stretch marks and sagging skin.
What procedures are included in a Mommy Makeover?
Depending on your unique situation, a Mommy Makeover can include a variety of procedures, from procedures to target the breasts like breast augmentation or a breast lift; procedures focused on the stomach like a fat transfer, a tummy tuck, or SmartLipo; and procedures focused on the butt like a Brazilian Butt Lift. The Mommy Makeover is a completely personalized procedure, so your specific treatment will differ depending on your goals and the areas you wish to target.
What results can I expect from a Mommy Makeover?
That depends on your goals. A Mommy Makeover provides complete rejuvenation and can restore your body to its pre-pregnancy shape—or perhaps a shape even closer to your dreams! Whether it is fatty deposits in the thighs, hips, and stomach, saggy skin, or loose and saggy breasts, the Mommy Makeover can produce truly amazing results through the combination of cutting-edge procedures like breast augmentation, tummy tuck, SmartLipo, and Brazilian Butt Lift.
Who is the ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover is any adult woman who is in good health, not currently pregnant or planning to become pregnant in the future, not currently lactating or planning on lactating in the future, who desires a procedure that can target several areas at once and achieve total body rejuvenation
How long does it take to recover from a Mommy Makeover?
One of the main advantages of a Mommy Makeover is its reduced recovery time. Instead of recovering from each procedure separately, you can recover from numerous procedures at the same time, shortening your overall recovery time. Most of our patients return to normal, non-strenuous activities after one to two weeks, and return to more strenuous activities by six weeks after their procedure. Of course, this all depends on your customized Mommy Makeover, so be sure to contact us today for further information.
