What Is A Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeover is among the most sought-after combination cosmetic surgery techniques performed today. It’s designed specifically for addressing the common issues faced by women that have been through pregnancy and nursing the baby.

The surgical technique became popular as “mommy makeover” when it found its way into the mainstream media. Your surgeon will discuss the various body contouring procedure options in the backdrop of your personal aesthetic goals to help you decide on the best combination for you.

pēkomd® Cosmetic Surgery, led by diligent board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Koltz provides mommy makeovers to patients in Toledo, Maumee, Northwest Ohio, Southeastern Michigan, and surrounding locations.

Key Components of a Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeovers are often centered on the breast and abdomen since these are primary areas of change during pregnancy and motherhood. The breasts enlarge during pregnancy and breastfeeding. In some women, they increase by more than a cup size. Once your body returns back to normal after childbirth, it results in noticeable sagging because of significant loss in breast volume.

The abdominal skin, tissues and muscles stretch for safely accommodating a growing baby throughout the pregnancy. These layers may not bounce back following childbirth. These are a few common procedures involved in a mommy makeover:

  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast reduction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Circumferential abdominoplasty

Breast augmentation can restore lost volume and fullness while a breast lift can help in improving shape by lifting sagging skin. Breast augmentation is a safe and effective procedure. Breast reduction procedure may be performed in women that have disproportionately large breasts following their pregnancy. Many mothers choose to get liposuction to take care of stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise.

Mommy Makeover Procedure

Mommy makeover plastic surgery can take anywhere from 3 to 5 hours. This depends on the type of procedures involved. You will be given general anesthesia to make you comfortable. The surgeon will proceed as per the pre-discussed surgical plan. An anesthesiologist will monitor you during the surgery and recovery once all procedures are complete.

Each mommy makeover procedure is different since they are personalized as per the unique needs of the patient. Hence, the only way to know how long a procedure will last or what will happen during surgery is by consulting with a reliable, experienced, and qualified cosmetic surgeon.

The treatment provider will examine your body before offering expert advice. It’s essential that you are aware of what is involved in the procedure before you get the surgery performed.

Recovery After a Mommy Makeover

You will have the after-effects of anesthesia following the mommy makeover and it is important that you have someone trusted drive you home and take care of you for the first few weeks. You won’t be able to attend to your children or lift them up for a few days following the surgery. You should plan on taking at least 2 weeks off work.

It takes 4 – 6 weeks for complete recovery. However, this depends on the procedures you choose as part of the mommy makeover. Long recognized cosmetic surgeon Dr. Peter Koltz receives patients from Toledo, Maumee, Northwest Ohio, Southeastern Michigan, and nearby areas for mommy makeover surgery.

Crystal H.

Dr. Koltz & his staff are truly amazing. From my 1st consultation they made me feel comfortable & answered all my questions & I had a lot. I needed a hysterectomy & I was surprised at how emotionally it affected me, so I thought I would reward myself with a flat tummy. Dr. Koltz went through the whole process of how things could go. My options were to do both surgeries at the same time or we could do them within 2 weeks of each other. I wanted lipo as well so I chose to do the surgeries 2 days apart due to wanting to get back to work ASAP. Best decision ever, my tummy tuck & lipo surgery went way better than the hysterectomy which surprised me. I had so much nausea & vomiting post hysterectomy it was extremely painful. I was nervous & explained that to the staff & nurse anesthetist & he did an amazing job. I felt great when surgery was over,(no nausea) little sore but that's to be expected. He did such an amazing job & can't recommend him & his staff enough. Thank you pēkomd® for everything. I love my new me already & I'm only one week post op!
