Mommy Makeover

While deflated breasts and sagging abdominal skin can result from old age or weight fluctuation, pregnancy is the most common cause. Women who have given birth often see a great degree of change in these areas, and they often find that fat that was once easy to lose tends to collect in new and unexpected places. No amount of diet or exercise can completely restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body, which is why many women consider the Mommy Makeover procedure. The Mommy Makeover is a combination of two or more cosmetic procedures that address the areas of the body mothers are often concerned with: the breasts, abdomen, and virtually any area that retains excess fat.

How can a Mommy Makeover help?

A Mommy Makeover can completely transform the contour of a woman’s body. Mothers can experience a total body transformation with the added benefit of going through the recovery process only once. Depending on the results you desire, you may choose two or more of the procedures below.

Frequently asked questions

The best candidates from the Mommy Makeover are finished having children, as doing so can reverse some of the results of the procedures. However, the desire to have children in the future will not disqualify you from the procedure.
A breast lift may remove some stretch marks on the breasts, and a tummy tuck may remove stretch marks on the abdomen.
The length of the Mommy Makeover depends greatly on the number of procedures chosen, which procedures are chosen, and the amount of correction needed.
Results from the Mommy Makeover are permanent; however, the procedure does not stop the natural aging process. Your skin may wrinkle over time, and you may compromise your results if you gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant. If you gain weight after liposuction or tummy tuck surgery, your weight gain will be evenly distributed with your new contours, so the outcome of weight gain will look better than if you had never gotten the procedure.
The Mommy Makeover is not a weight loss procedure. With liposuction, the average amount of fat that is removed is about five pounds. These procedures are meant to streamline the contours of your body and tighten loose skin. The best candidates are patients who have maintained their weight for several months. The best way to most accurately determine if you are a candidate for the Mommy Makeover is to schedule a consultation.
During your one-on-one consultation, you will have the opportunity to share your ideal body goals with your surgeon. Dr. Wilson will give you advice about which procedures and combinations will help you to achieve your goals. Before this first meeting, take time to think about what is most important to you, as this will help to determine which procedures are best suited for you.
Before your Mommy Makeover, you may be advised to avoid smoking for at least six weeks and drinking alcohol for at least two weeks. You may also need to refrain from taking certain blood-thinning medications, such as those containing aspirin or ibuprofen. You will want to avoid all practices, medications, and supplements that thin the blood or prevent its ability to clot. Failure to do so can increase your risk of complications both during and after the procedure. A Mommy Makeover can remove a significant amount of fat and excess tissue; however, it is not a weight loss surgery, so you may want to be as close to your ideal weight before your procedure. If you have young children at home, be sure to establish adequate child care immediately following your surgery so that you can focus on your recovery.
A Mommy Makeover is a very comprehensive body contouring procedure, so the best way to maintain your results is to continue a healthy lifestyle that consists of a nutritious diet and exercise. As previously noted, this procedure does not prevent you from gaining weight, nor does it stop the natural progression of aging, meaning that you may eventually develop sagging in the breasts and age-related laxity on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms. If you do develop additional skin laxity or excess fat (from pregnancy, weight gain, or natural age) that is not responsive to a healthy lifestyle, repeated surgeries may be available for you.
