Why a Mommy Makeover?

Plastic surgery is often the only way to fully restore your body.

There’s no doubt that pregnancy is hard on your body. The muscle and skin tissues expand to accommodate the baby, especially in areas like the abdomen, hips, and breasts. The breasts lose volume and firmness as they shrink back down to their original size. Although diet and exercise may help you lose post-pregnancy weight, plastic surgery is often the only way to fully restore a tight, shapely figure.

The Mommy Makeover at Clevens Face and Body Specialists combines several techniques—often breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, and Liponique Body Contouring—tailored to your goals. Some patients even choose to add an arm lift or thigh lift, too.

Do I Need a Mommy Makeover?

Regain your confidence along with your body.

A Mommy Makeover can give you the toned abdomen and lifted, firm breasts that will help you look as good as you feel. While you can still have children after the Mommy Makeover, Dr. Simon recommends waiting to have a Mommy Makeover until you’re finished having children in order to maximize the benefits of surgery. 

The best way to know what you can achieve with a Mommy Makeover is to meet with Dr. Simon. As one of the country’s leading body contouring surgeons, Dr. Simon can help you explore treatments that will help you feel more confident in your body and that can safely fulfill your aesthetic desires. Together, you’ll determine the exact combination of procedures and develop a custom treatment plan.

Mommy Makeover Benefits

The benefits of multiple procedures all at once. 

Since your Mommy Makeover is customized to your needs, you can realize numerous benefits in one procedure, allowing you to minimize downtime and address all your areas of concern for optimal results.

For many patients, that means adding lift and restoring fullness and volume with a breast augmentation and breast lift, as well as tightening up the abdomen and firming up stomach muscles with a tummy tuck. You may also add Liponique, Dr. Simon’s signature approach to liposuction that safely removes excess fat deposits. Arm and thigh lifts can help you further tighten up your body and remove loose, sagging skin. Talk with Dr. Simon about your goals to see what a Mommy Makeover can help you achieve.

Mommy Makeover Procedure

The safest, most satisfying results.

Mommy Makeovers usually take three hours or more, depending on your combination of treatments. Dr. Simon takes care to place incisions in areas you can conceal under clothing and swimwear.

Dr. Simon performs all surgical procedures alongside an anesthesiologist in a fully accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) that exceeds the most stringent state and national accreditation standards, providing you the highest level of safety available. Since body contouring procedures often combine multiple surgeries, the process may take several hours to complete. 

Hear Dr. Simon explain the most common procedures that make up a Mommy Makeover.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Begin recovery the same day as your procedure.

Most women are home recovering from their Mommy Makeover the same day. The entire recovery process will take 10 days to six weeks, depending on the treatments you choose. To aid in the most comfortable recovery possible, Dr. Simon offers a game-changing local analgesic medicine, Exparel, used while you’re still asleep during your procedure. Exparel minimizes pain post-surgery and reduces the need for any narcotic pain medications and the nausea they cause. Learn more about Exparel.

Most patients return to work about 10 to 14 days after surgery, though we recommend waiting six weeks before resuming heavy exercise. As your body fully heals over three to four months, you’ll see the benefits of your Mommy Makeover continue to reveal themselves.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

What is a Mommy Makeover?

The Mommy Makeover is a rejuvenating set of surgical procedures, designed to restore your pre-pregnancy figure. Normally, the procedure will include a breast augmentation and/or breast lift, and a tummy tuck. Depending on the patient, some women will also add an additional corrective surgery such as liposuction for a more sculpted, youthful result.

Who is a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

A woman who is noticing her figure change with age, following childbirth, or after a dramatic weight loss may make an excellent candidate for the Mommy Makeover. The ideal patient will be in good health, understand the surgical procedures, and hold realistic expectations for their final results.

How long does it take to recover from a Mommy Makeover?

Recovering from a Mommy Makeover will normally take from 10 days to six weeks.

When can I return to work after my Mommy Makeover?

Most patients can return to work and other non-strenuous activities in 10 to 14 days.

Is the Mommy Makeover a good method for weight loss?

The Mommy Makeover procedure is not a means for weight loss. While liposuction can help remove excess fat, the tummy tuck and breast enhancement are purely sculpting procedures. In fact, the ideal candidate for the Mommy Makeover will be someone close to an ideal, stable weight. However, some patients may have a Mommy Makeover as part of their ongoing weight loss efforts.

 

Are the benefits of a Mommy Makeover long-lasting?

While the results from a Mommy Makeover can be long lasting, it is important to continue with a healthy lifestyle and consistent exercise routine. A significant gain in weight can undo the surgical results.

 

Will there be scarring after my Mommy Makeover?

Visible scarring will occur after a Mommy Makeover. However, the scars typically fade over time. Dr. Simon also positions incisions carefully, so they can easily be concealed under clothing or swimwear.

 

What are the potential complications of a Mommy Makeover?

Dr. Simon’s Mommy Makeover is considered a safe procedure. Any surgical technique will carry some risk of complications, however. Although rare, potential problems following a Mommy Makeover can include excessive bleeding, infection, and scarring.
