Mommy Makeover

After giving birth, a mother’s life becomes a blur of many joyful changes. However, some changes that are less than welcome are those that happen to the mother’s body. Pregnancy and nursing take a toll on a woman’s figure and may lead to issues such as saggy, deflated breasts, excess abdominal skin, and stubborn fat deposits. A Mommy Makeover procedure is designed to take back the mother’s body by combining several procedures that can correct these issues and restore a pre-baby figure.

Thinking About Getting a Mommy Makeover?

There is a lot of social pressure to “get your body back” after having a baby, and for many women, this is not only difficult but impossible without help. Sagging skin and breasts cannot be fixed by spending hours at the gym or adopting a vegan diet, but a Mommy Makeover can help a woman get her body back after childbirth.

The extreme lifestyle changes and the biological and hormonal changes that a new mother goes through can lead to overwhelming feelings of inadequacy and depression. Seeing the ways in which pregnancy has altered your body may diminish your self-confidence and taint your self-image. A Mommy Makeover can restore your body so that you will look and feel more attractive and confident as you tackle the challenges of motherhood.

No two mothers have the same experience with pregnancy and nursing. Your concerns may be about your stretched-out abdominal skin, loose stomach muscles, deflated breasts, sagging breasts, or even all of the above. A Mommy Makeover is a customizable procedure that can give your body exactly what it needs to restore its naturally attractive, feminine curves.

Your Mommy Makeover Options

Dr. Chiu will evaluate your medical history, anatomy, and preferences and discuss with you the best options to achieve your goals with your Mommy Makeover. While any part of the face or body can be improved in a Mommy Makeover, the following four procedures are most commonly included in this combination procedure.

Breast Lift

  • This procedure lifts, reshapes, and improves the firmness of sagging breasts.
  • Breasts that have become saggy due to pregnancy and breastfeeding can look youthful and perky once again.

Liposuction

  • This procedure can remove unwanted fat from the stomach, butt, thighs, hips, bra line, or other areas of the body.
  • Liposuction reclaims your natural, attractive body shape and can be the first step toward a healthier and more active lifestyle.

Breast Augmentation

  • This procedure enhances the volume and shape of small or deflated breasts.
  • Breasts that have lost volume and have become deflated after childbirth and nursing can once again be firm and full with breast implants.

Tummy Tuck

  • This procedure tightens the stomach muscles, removes excess abdominal fat and skin, and creates a smoother, flatter tummy.
  • Abdominoplasty can help mothers reclaim their body by eliminating stretch marks, improving core muscle strength, getting rid of excess skin, and eliminating stubborn fat.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

A Mommy Makeover procedure is completely customizable, which means that the recovery time will vary from patient to patient. Women who undergo all four of the above procedures at once should expect a longer recovery than women who undergo only one or two of these procedures. Some patients who undergo a more involved Mommy Makeover will benefit from remaining in an aftercare facility for several days after surgery. Patients may take prescribed pain medications to manage pain and soreness during the first few weeks after surgery. For most women, it is acceptable to resume normal activities about two to four weeks after the Mommy Makeover. Patients should plan a gradual approach to resuming exercise after surgery and keep all follow-up appointments with the surgeon to monitor their recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does a Mommy Makeover have only aesthetic benefits?

A Mommy Makeover has far more than only aesthetic benefits. The improvements to your body shape can greatly enhance your self-confidence and feelings of attractiveness and sexuality. The results of the procedure may encourage you to want to maintain your improved body shape with a healthy diet and frequent exercise. The tummy tuck portion of a Mommy Makeover has even been shown to improve posture and core strength. A mons pubis lift, which is sometimes performed, can improve intimacy sensations and your libido.

Can I still breastfeed after a Mommy Makeover?

You should be able to breastfeed after your Mommy Makeover, even if it includes a breast lift and/or breast augmentation. However, as many women experience some degree of breast sagging and deflation after nursing, it is best to wait to undergo the procedure until you have finished nursing. Dr. Chiu can discuss this with you in greater detail during your consultation.

Am I a candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover are in good health, non-smoking, and finished with both breastfeeding and having children. Candidates should also be committed to self-improvement, be dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts, stomach, thighs, etc., and have realistic expectations about the results. You and your doctor should determine together whether you are a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover.
