Why a Mommy Makeover?

Plastic surgery is often the only way to restore your body to its youthful shape.

There’s no doubt that pregnancy is a blessing and a wonderful process, but it is definitely 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 restore a tight, shapely figure.

The Mommy Makeover at Clevens Face and Body Specialists blends unique plastic surgical 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. Your procedure is customized to meet your wishes and needs.

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, the breast and body plastic surgery specialists at Clevens Face and Body Specialists recommend waiting to have a Mommy Makeover until you’re finished having children to maximize the benefits of surgery. 

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

The ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover is a non-smoker who has realistic goals and expectations and does not plan to have any more children. Your overall health and weight will play a role in your candidacy and your overall results. A bright and positive outlook is always helpful.

Mommy Makeover Benefits

With a Mommy Makeover, patients can enjoy 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. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can significantly enhance your silhouette for a more stabilized and firm abdominal wall. You may also add Liponique, the Clevens Face and Body Specialists signature approach to liposuction that safely removes excess fat deposits and, in turn, reveals beautiful body contours. Arm and thigh lifts can help you further tighten up your body and remove loose, sagging skin to reveal tone and muscle. Talk with the breast and body plastic surgery specialists at Clevens Face and Body Specialists about your goals to see what a Mommy Makeover can help you achieve.

Each procedure is carefully tailored to meet the patient’s specific needs, whether their goals are large or small. While a Mommy Makeover will focus on a set of enhancements, our board-certified, experienced plastic surgery specialists can optimize the ability to target specific areas for more emphasized correction. For example, if a breast augmentation and lift were decided on during a Mommy Makeover consultation, the many different implants will be discussed thoroughly and accurately to ensure each aspect of your Mommy Makeover is carefully personalized to restore the most critical aspects of your appearance for a more youthful you.

Mommy Makeover Procedure

Mommy Makeover procedures have some of the safest, most satisfying results.

The Mommy Makeover surgery usually takes three hours or more, depending on your combination of treatments. Our board-certified breast and and body plastic surgery specialists at Clevens Face and Body Specialists take care to place incisions in areas you can conceal under clothing and swimwear. Breast incisions can even be hidden in the armpit.

The breast and body plastic surgery specialists at Clevens Face and Body Specialists perform 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 the highest level of safety. Some doctors perform these procedures in their offices with nurses who administer anesthesia; the expert surgeons at Clevens Face and Body Specialists have chosen a higher standard in surgical care to ensure the comfort and safety of our patients. 

  • Restoring symmetrical and flattering fullness to the breasts is one of the primary goals of elevating the deflated breasts found after pregnancy. By implementing a breast lift along with breast augmentation, patients can discover perkier, higher-sitting breasts.
  • Pregnancy can lead to the development of fat pockets in hard to treat areas around the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, and back. The breast and body plastic surgery specialists at Clevens Face and Body Specialists perform our customized Liponique technique of liposuction and body contouring so fatty deposits can be suctioned away.
  • As your uterus expands to accommodate your growing baby, so does the abdominal wall, making the muscles stretch and (occasionally) separate. With unique expertise with tummy tuck surgery, the breast and body plastic surgery specialists at Clevens Face and Body Specialists restore your midsection for stronger balance and more youthful tightness.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Begin recovery the same day as your procedure. 

The Mommy Makeover is an outpatient procedure; therefore, you can return home immediately after surgery to start your recovery. The entire recovery process will take 10 days to six weeks, depending on the treatments you choose. Clevens Face and Body Specialists offers a groundbreaking local pain medicine, EXPAREL®, used while you’re still asleep during your procedure, to aid in the most comfortable recovery possible. EXPAREL® minimizes post-surgery pain and reduces the need for any narcotic pain medications and nausea they cause. Learn more about EXPAREL®

EXPAREL® is often combined with TXA (tranexamic acid) and your body’s own natural healing cells to reduce bruising, minimize pain, and speed healing. Ask your doctor at Clevens Face and Body Specialists if this might be right for you to get back to your daily routine more quickly. 

Most patients return to work about 10 to 14 days after surgery, though we recommend waiting six weeks before resuming heavy exercise and consulting your doctor on the length of time best suited for your health. 

Your board certified plastic surgery specialist at Clevens Face and Body Specialists  may suggest that additional tips for fast and smooth recovery include having a proper rest area, arranging for childcare and other assistance, and cutting back on tobacco or alcohol to reduce inflammation. 

As your body fully heals over three to four months, you’ll see the benefits of your Mommy Makeover continue to reveal themselves. While having multiple procedures done in a single surgery may seem overwhelming, most patients experience reduced recovery times in comparison to getting different procedures completed one after the other.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 breast augmentation and/or breast lift and a tummy tuck. Depending on the patient, some women will also add a corrective surgery, such as liposuction, for a more sculpted, youthful result.

Who is a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

A woman who notices 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 less than one week.

Is the Mommy Makeover a good method for weight loss?

The Mommy Makeover procedure is not a means of 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. Significant weight gain or additional pregnancies can undo the surgical results. The longest-lasting results are found in women who maintain a stable weight.

Will there be scarring after my Mommy Makeover?

Visible scarring will occur after a Mommy Makeover at the locations of the incisions; however, the scars typically fade over time. Incisions are carefully placed and meticulously closed with expert plastic surgical technique so they can easily be concealed under clothing or swimwear.

What are the potential complications of a Mommy Makeover?

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