How Can I Find Out About a Mommy Makeover?

Dr. Daniel Casper will meet with you in an initial consultation to discuss options that will best meet your needs in planning to restore your pre-baby figure. At this consultation, Dr. Casper will explain all aspects of the procedures you are considering, address any concerns you may have, and discuss a custom surgical plan for you.

Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

As with any elective cosmetic surgery, you should be in good health and be free of medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, bleeding disorders and diabetes. These conditions, and some others, could cause complications while under anesthesia. You should have finished having children, as a subsequent pregnancy will affect the results of your surgery. You should be near or at an ideal weight, as a mommy makeover is not a weight loss procedure.

How Does a Mommy Makeover Work?

This procedure will remove stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise and will remove excess skin on the lower abdomen where the majority of stretch marks usually appear. A mommy makeover will also tighten the tummy, raise the breasts and sculpt the waistline among other enhancements. Dr. Casper is a body contouring expert with thousands of surgeries to his credit.

How Long Do I Have to Wait to Get a Mommy Makeover?

You should wait at least six months after giving birth to allow your body to stabilize after the hormonal and physical changes of pregnancy and childbirth. If you were breastfeeding, your breasts must be completely dry to avoid breast implant complications such as capsular contracture. Breast asymmetry can also occur during breastfeeding. If this irregularity doesn’t resolve, the symmetry can be restored in a custom surgery performed by Dr. Casper. A mommy makeover can occur within a year or two of giving birth, or years later and achieve the same beneficial results. Women who have very small children as well as the demands of a job should carefully consider how managing the demands on their time will impact their recovery.

What is the Recovery Time After a Mommy Makeover?

Comprehensive, Personalized

The recovery varies depending on the procedures you will have and how well you heal. Some procedures can be performed in a single surgery appointment, speeding overall recovery time.

A Comprehensive, Personalized Approach

Breast augmentation with lift along with a custom tummy tuck is one of the most common and popular mommy makeovers. Breasts and abdomen are the two body areas most affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. Having these two procedures at once means that you will be able to enjoy the result of your procedure months faster than single surgeries would allow with about the same recovery time.

There are some procedures that cannot be combined with others as it would be unsafe for the patient. Dr. Casper will advise you on the timeframe needed for your mommy makeover. He will combine procedures when he can, based on what is safe.

Be sure to schedule adequate help during your initial recovery period, particularly during the first two weeks. You will be dealing with fatigue and some level of discomfort. Most patients find the pain very manageable with prescription medication, but you need to compensate for stiffness and tenderness for several weeks which is difficult when dealing with babies or toddlers.

You may find it difficult to walk completely upright for a few weeks after a tummy tuck. You will also be restricted on what you are allowed to lift in the first month after surgery. If you have small children, make plans to have another person help you to care for their needs while you get through the initial recovery period.

Revealing your body in bikini or tight-fitting clothing does not have to be sacrificed after becoming a mother. Your initial consultation is the first step to learning how you too can enjoy the result this life-changing procedure. The procedure that may be part of your custom makeover include:

Breast Lift

Excess fat and skin can accumulate in the breasts after pregnancy, leaving them looking saggy, droopy, or deflated. A breast lift removes and tightens skin and restores the breasts to a youthful position on the chest wall, so they once again appear youthful, plump, and perky.

Breast Augmentation

New moms may experience a loss of breast volume and contour after pregnancy. Breast enhancement with implants can restore your breasts so they look lovely and rounded. Dr. Casper can effectively address loss of volume and firmness by adding fullness to the breasts, making them well-proportioned and attractive, restoring your figure.

Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)

One of the most noticeable changes to your body during and after pregnancy is, of course, the abdomen. While you are pregnant, the stomach muscles are stretched and may appear split, impossible to re-tighten through exercise and diet. A tummy tuck not only pulls the abdominal muscles taut; it also removes loose, excess skin and gives the abdomen a tighter, more fit-looking appearance.

Liposuction

After pregnancy, there may be excess fatty deposits that accumulate in a variety of areas that are resistant to traditional weight loss methods. Smartlipo, or tumescent liposuction will reduce these pockets of fat to restore a trimmer, sculpted look.

Mommy Makeover FAQ's

How long does a mommy makeover procedure take?

The length of a mommy makeover surgery depends on which procedures will be needed to restore your body to its pre-baby condition. The idea behind a mommy makeover is to have all the procedures you need completed in one surgery, saving you the cost of multiple surgical appointments. Typically, the procedures in a mommy makeover can be completed in four to six hours.

When should I get a mommy makeover?

If you are considering a mommy makeover, the procedure should take place after your childbearing years have come to an end. A mommy makeover will not prevent you from having more children, but getting pregnant again could once again stretch muscles, skin, and tissue, leaving your body in a condition that requires another surgery to restore.

Will there be scars after a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover can completely restore your body after having children, which requires incisions. A surgeon with extensive expertise and good technique can control scarring and instruct you on to how to minimize the scars so they fade to being almost invisible. With careful incision placement, you should be comfortable wearing even the most revealing clothing.

Do I need all the procedures?

A mommy makeover is tailored to you, only a personal consultation will allow us to advise you of the procedures you will require to restore your pre-baby body. It is your “makeover,” and customized specifically to match your vision.While some mothers are lucky and experience few significant changes the body after pregnancy, it is more common for women to experience some breast sagging or stretching, stretch marks and loose skin, tissue, and fat on the tummy zone, and other body issues they want to resolve. We work closely with you to determine which of the procedures will be needed to achieve your goals.

How long should I wait after giving birth for a mommy makeover?

You can get a mommy makeover after about six months to a year following giving birth. If you are breastfeeding, wait until six months after your baby is no longer nursing. If you’ve gained weight during your pregnancy, the first step is to exercise and diet to lose post-baby weight. Your body may now have stretch marks. Your skin may not have returned to its original position, leaving your once taut, youthful curves appearing loose and sagging. Breastfeeding stresses the breast and skin tissue, and they may have lost their once firm, bouncy, youthful appearance.

Can I get a mommy makeover and still breastfeed?

Yes, it is possible to breastfeed even after breast augmentation, but be aware that the added weight may cause lead to some stretching and sagging, requiring a breast lift in the future, depending your individual level of skin firmness and flexibility. Ideally, mothers should wait six months after breastfeeding their last child before moving forward with a breast augmentation.
