About the Mommy Makeover

Motherhood and childbirth can be a wonderful experience, but it can also take a toll on your body in a way that can be challenging to restore on your own. Our team of talented, board-certified surgeons at The Face & Body Center can help you get back the body that you once had before and regain your youthful figure. A mommy makeover is specifically designed for your needs and goals and can combine a number of different procedures, including liposuction, breast enhancement, tummy tuck, skin tightening, Brazilian butt lift, and more. Just give our Flowood, MS office a call to schedule your consultation and create your unique treatment plan. Your new, dream body can be yours with help from our team.

Ideal Candidates

During a private consultation, our plastic surgeon will listen to all the concerns each patient has about her body to see if she is a good candidate for these procedures. Many women seeking these treatments and surgeries have:

  • Breasts that sag and droop from multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding
  • A tummy with bulges of fat that didn't go away with post-pregnancy weight loss
  • Extra skin on the arms, buttocks, and thighs that didn’t bounce back after pregnancy weight
  • A less-than-desirable shape to their breasts or buttocks and need enhancement to fill in the lost volume after baby
  • Multiple areas of the body with visible, unattractive stretch marks

The best candidates for the mommy makeover are women who are finished having children. We strongly encourage women considering the mommy makeover to not plan on having more children once the surgeries have taken place, as it will damage the skin by stretching and will require more plastic surgeries in the future.

What to Expect

Pregnancy changes many areas of the body; a mommy makeover will require careful planning and could be implemented in stages. Our plastic surgeons have years of experience performing these surgeries in one setting, but sometimes the health of the patient requires more than one surgery date. The end result is still the same. Just expect that some women will have more surgeries than other women and will endure a longer recovery time.

Some of the mommy makeover procedures may include a combination of:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift (with or without implants)
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Thigh lift
  • Butt lift
  • Arm lift
  • Labiaplasty
  • Skin rejuvenation (laser treatments, BOTOX®, fillers)

Your plastic surgeon will require an overnight stay for observation in the hospital after having multiple surgeries and being under anesthesia for three or more hours. This is to ensure our patients' safety and to limit the risk of infection post-op. We will also ensure our mommy makeover patients have the best in recovery care and pain management after the procedure.

Anticipated Results

New moms love the fact that once the extra skin has been removed and tightened, their stretch marks are drastically reduced. Our practice can minimize the remaining stretch marks with nonsurgical treatments such as lasers, microdermabrasion, and/or chemical peels. This does not mean there will not be surgery scars. As with all plastic surgeries, your plastic surgeon will do the best to minimize scarring with careful incision techniques and placement. While the recovery time does take several months, you should be able to return to a normal routine in about 4 – 6 weeks and should wait for clearance from your plastic surgeon before starting to exercise again. The entire mommy makeover transformation could take up to a year for recovery. The results are life changing for many women.

Beauty after Baby

Some women feel less than beautiful with an after-baby body. Even though there are risks involved with plastic surgery, the mommy makeover has produced tremendous results to give women back their youthful figure and body confidence.
