Mommy Makeover

Give yourself the gift of feeling your best

What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover focuses on physical changes from pregnancy and breastfeeding through a combination of surgeries. You and your plastic surgeon will work together to craft a personalized plan for your needs. Options include breast augmentation, breast lift (with or without implants), breast reduction, full or mini tummy tuck, and liposuction.

Who is a candidate for a mommy makeover?

If you've experienced significant physical changes after pregnancy and breastfeeding, a mommy makeover could be a great option. We start with an in-depth consultation where we'll discuss your expectations and health to see if a mommy makeover is the right approach.

What to expect when getting a mommy makeover

Before your mommy makeover

  • Be prepared to take certain medications or adjust your current medications.
  • If you smoke, you'll need to stop.
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, as they can increase bleeding.

During your mommy makeover

  • The procedure takes between three and five hours.
  • You'll be asleep during surgery (general anesthesia).

After your mommy makeover

  • Gauze or bandages will be applied to your incisions.
  • Expect to wear an elastic bandage or support bra to minimize swelling and support your breasts.
  • You may also have a compression garment to control swelling in your abdomen, waist and buttocks.
  • Your surgeon will prescribe medication for pain management and will give instructions for proper cleaning and care.
  • When you go home, if you experience shortness of breath, chest pains or unusual heartbeats, seek medical attention immediately.
  • You'll continue healing for several weeks (swelling will slowly decrease as the shape of your treated areas improves).
  • Avoid excessive force, abrasion or motion while you're healing.
  • Over time, your implants will settle and scar lines will improve, but they won't completely disappear.
  • We'll schedule follow-up visits along the way to track your progress.
  • Expect to not see final results until several months after your surgery even though there will be an immediate significant improvement.

Benefits of a mommy makeover

Looking and feeling how you want can make a world of difference, both physically and emotionally. Benefits of a mommy makeover include:

  • More sculpted stomach. If you're bothered by stretch marks and sagging skin on your abdomen, a tummy tuck can tighten things up and remove excess fat.
  • Fuller breasts. Through a breast lift or augmentation, you can enjoy fuller, more balanced breast that might be better than ever.
  • Less stubborn fat. Say goodbye to pesky fat in your hips, thighs and love handles with the help of liposuction.
  • Self-confidence. While a mommy makeover is only a physical procedure, it absolutely can have a positive effect on your self-confidence and personal comfort.
