Mommy Makeover

mommy makeover atlanta

You wouldn’t trade being a mom for anything in the world. But if you’re like most moms, we’re guessing you would trade the sagging skin, drooping breasts, and stubborn “baby weight” to get your pre-baby body back. If you’re unhappy with the changes that pregnancy and childbirth have made to your body, you’re certainly not alone. The good news is that there is something you can do about it.

A lot of moms are choosing to have body and breast contouring surgery, affectionately called a “mommy makeover,” to help reverse some of these unwelcome changes and once again see the body that they had before pregnancy. A mommy makeover can help you feel more confident in and out of clothing, and can even help you fit into the pre-baby wardrobe you thought you’d never be able to wear again.

What’s Involved in Mommy Makeover Surgery?

A mommy makeover is not a single, standardized procedure. Our goal is to help you get your body back, not someone else’s. We’ll listen closely to your concerns and customize your mommy makeover to address these concerns. Most women would like to improve the shape and fullness of their breasts, restore a flatter, tighter tummy, and get rid of excess skin and fat deposits that won’t respond to diet or exercise. A mommy makeover often combines a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction to achieve these goals.

One of the most overlooked benefits of a mommy makeover is that it can actually help you improve upon your pre-baby body to your desire, allowing you to achieve the breast shape and size you’ve always wanted, or reducing fat deposits that were present before baby came along. Each of our four Board Certified Plastic Surgeons are experienced and skilled in all the procedures involved. We’ll help you decide which options are right for you.

Your mommy makeover will be performed at our State Licensed, Certified Surgi-Center. You will receive general anesthesia and/or epidural anesthesia with intravenous sedation, which induces a gentle sleep that keeps you pain-free and comfortable throughout the surgery. When you awaken after the surgery, the epidural will continue to keep you comfortable. You will spend about 60 minutes in our recovery room before you go home.

But I’m a Mom, Remember? Tell Me About Recovery

We use very sophisticated techniques to keep you comfortable at home as well, including monitored time-release medication. The first few days after surgery, you will need help around the house, including a family member or sitter to help take care for your kids. Our surgeons and patient care coordinators will work with you to schedule your mommy makeover for a time that best fits into your life. We’ll answer all your questions and make sure you have the information you need to arrange childcare, take time off of work, and prepare for surgery so you can enjoy the most stress-free recovery possible.

Depending on the procedures involved in your mommy makeover, you can usually return to your normal daily activities in about two weeks, although you should limit strenuous exercise for a few more weeks after that. In six weeks, you’ll be ready for your post-op pictures.

When is the Right Time for a Mommy Makeover?

While the “right time” is different for each patient, there are a number of factors that you should consider. In general, you should wait until you are finished having children. The results from certain mommy makeover procedures, such as breast enhancement and abdominoplasty, can be negatively affected by natural changes in the body during pregnancy. However, there’s no reason to wait too long after your family is complete to enjoy your newly restored body, not to mention the confidence of having a beautifully toned, more youthful figure. What’s most important is that you’re ready to do this for you.
