Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Mommy Makeover?

The toll that pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can have on a woman's body can be devastating, both physically and emotionally. Even with proper diet and exercise, oftentimes it is near impossible to restore one's post-pregnancy body back to one's pre-pregnancy body.

Some of these effects include:

  • Stretching of the stomach muscles
  • Stretching and loosening of the skin in the areas of the breasts, thighs, abdominals
  • Excess fat deposits in the belly, back and thighs
  • Stretch marks on the breasts, belly and thighs

For those mothers out there who want a firmer, tighter body, even after childbirth, there is the Mommy Makeover. This revolutionary cosmetic procedure has been developed by cosmetic surgeons with the needs and desires of mother's everywhere in mind. Essentially, this procedure brings together the best of several popular surgical procedures to restore and rejuvenate the mother's body back to her pre-pregnancy body, as close as possible.

What the Mommy Makeover Won't Do

This new procedure has yielded amazing results for many mothers, but it is not a replacement for proper diet and exercise. Rather, when the Mommy Makeover is used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise, the results can be both amazing and long-lasting. There are some things you should consider before a Mommy Makeover, however. If you are planning on dramatic weight loss, or plan on becoming pregnant again, it would make sense to postpone the Mommy Makeover, as weight loss or pregnancy can have adverse effects on the results of the Mommy Makeover. It is recommended that you should wait at least 6 months after you stop breastfeeding before undergoing the Mommy Makeover procedure, as it will allow time for your body to heal naturally from the stress of pregnancy and childbirth. Furthermore, it allows time for the skin and muscles to 'snap back' as much as the will, naturally, which will only aid in the restoration of your body.

Is it right for me?

As with any cosmetic enhancement surgery, you should first consider your motivations for surgery to be sure that you're choosing surgery for yourself and not to fulfill someone else's' desires or expectations of you or your body. Mothering is perhaps the most important job there is and the sacrifices made by mothers everywhere deserve respect and compassion. It is a very personal matter and any decision for surgery should come after careful consideration of all the facts and emotions involved.
