What is Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is used to describe a customized combination of cosmetic procedures 
to restore a woman’s body shape and appearance after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. 
This makeover typically addresses changes in the breasts, abdomen, waist, and buttocks. 
A Mommy Makeover is commonly composed of procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), liposuction, and in some cases, a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). The goal is to tackle issues such as sagging breasts, loose skin, stretch marks, and excess fat, helping mothers regain their pre-pregnancy body confidence. Each Mommy Makeover is tailored to the individual’s specific needs and aesthetic goals, making it a highly personalized treatment plan.

Surgical Techniques

Dr. Carlos Mata and Dr. Martin Benjamin, specialists in Phoenix Mommy Makeovers, utilize surgical techniques that are specifically designed to address the unique conditions of each area you wish to enhance. The procedure is fully adaptable to meet your individual needs and objectives.

Breast

Post-pregnancy, many women often face concerns like sagging or loose skin and changes in breast volume. Depending on your specific needs, procedures such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, and breast lift with implants can be considered. Often, a combination of these surgeries, such as pairing breast augmentation with a lift, is used to restore a youthful and aesthetically pleasing breast appearance after pregnancy.

Common concerns after pregnancy include loose skin, stretch marks, and persistent fat deposits. These issues can be effectively treated with a combination of liposuction and a no-drain tummy tuck, which removes excess skin and tightens the remaining skin. This method not only speeds up recovery but also minimizes complications and delivers improved results.

Every mom has unique needs, so it’s common to include a personalized add-on. One of the most popular options is the Brazilian Butt Lift, which enhances and shapes the buttocks and hips.

Who’s a candidate 
for a Mommy Makeover?

Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover are healthy women who do not intend to have more children and have not achieved their desired post-pregnancy shape despite diet and exercise efforts. The procedure can be scheduled six months after you have finished breastfeeding. Although it is possible to become pregnant after the surgery, doing so may impact your results. To ensure the best and longest-lasting outcomes, it is advisable to avoid pregnancy after the procedure.

Moreover, candidates for a Mommy Makeover should maintain a stable weight, as significant weight fluctuations can impact the results. Women considering this procedure should have realistic expectations, understanding that it aims to enhance and improve their current body shape rather than completely transform it. Ideal candidates are those who comprehend the recovery process and can allocate the necessary time for healing.

Proper post-op care is crucial for allowing scar tissue to strengthen and support your long-term results. You’ll see the best outcomes approximately three months after the procedure, once the implants have settled, the swelling has reduced, and the scars have healed.

Benefits of Mommy Makeover Procedure

The Mommy Makeover in Phoenix, performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon, is a customized blend of cosmetic surgeries aimed at addressing the physical changes women often experience after pregnancy and childbirth. Its main goal is to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy condition. Here are the benefits of Mommy Makeover procedures, which provide a variety of empowering advantages that enhance overall well-being:

Enhanced Physical Appearance

Restored Breast Shape and Size: The effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding often alter breast size and cause sagging. With a Mommy Makeover, procedures like breast augmentation or a breast lift can be performed to restore and enhance the appearance of your breasts.

Toned Abdominal Area:As part of most Mommy Makeovers, a tummy tuck removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles, creating a flatter and more contoured stomach.

Reduced Excess Fat:Liposuction, a common part of the procedure, targets and removes stubborn fat deposits, refining the body’s contour and improving its overall shape.

Boosted Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem

A Mommy Makeover can greatly enhance a woman’s self-confidence and self-esteem. Post-pregnancy changes in body shape and size can impact self-perception. By addressing these concerns, the procedure improves comfort and confidence in one's own skin, positively affecting overall quality of life.

Improved Comfort and Lifestyle

Post-pregnancy often brings physical discomfort and restrictions in clothing choices. A Mommy Makeover can help by removing excess skin and improving body proportions, reducing discomfort. Additionally, it allows women to comfortably enjoy a wider range of clothing styles.

Long-Lasting Results

Although diet and exercise are vital for overall health, they often cannot resolve loose skin and stretched muscles that result from pregnancy. A Mommy Makeover provides a more permanent solution to these issues. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you can enjoy the long-lasting results of the procedure.

Emotional and Psychological Benefits

Feeling confident about one's body has profound emotional and psychological benefits. A Mommy Makeover can enhance mental health by alleviating anxiety and depression linked to body image issues.

Restored Breast Shape and Size: Pregnancy and breastfeeding often result in alterations in breast size and can cause the breasts 
to sag. A Mommy Makeover often includes breast augmentation or a breast lift, helping to restore or even improve breast appearance.

Toned Abdominal Area: A tummy tuck, part of most Mommy Makeovers, removes excess skin and tightens abdominal muscles, resulting in a contoured and flatter stomach.
Reduced Excess Fat: Liposuction, another common component, targets and removes stubborn fat deposits, refining the body’s contour and enhancing overall shape.
Physical discomfort and limitations in clothing choices are common post-pregnancy issues. A Mommy Makeover can alleviate physical discomfort caused by excess skin or poorly proportioned body areas. Additionally, 
it can expand clothing options, allowing women to wear a broader range 
of styles comfortably.
While diet and exercise are crucial for a healthy lifestyle, they might 
not always address the loose skin and stretched muscles post-pregnancy. The Mommy Makeover offers more permanent solutions to these issues. With proper maintenance, including a healthy lifestyle, the results 
of the makeover can be long-lasting.
The emotional and psychological impact of feeling good about one’s body should not be underestimated. The Mommy Makeover can lead to improved mental health, including reduced anxiety and depression related to body image.
Undergoing a Mommy Makeover can significantly boost a woman’s 
self-confidence and self-esteem. The changes in body shape and size post-pregnancy can affect how a woman views herself. By targeting 
these specific areas of concern, the procedure enhances women’s 
comfort and confidence in their own skin, thereby positively influencing their overall quality of life.

Mommy Makeover Recovery Journey

A mommy makeover is a comprehensive surgical procedure that often requires significant rest and assistance from loved ones during recovery. Performed under deep sedation in our accredited surgical, the surgery typically lasts about six hours or longer. Recovery is gradual, with many women experiencing difficulty walking upright in the first few weeks. Patients are encouraged to take it slow during the initial recovery period. The final results of the procedure can take anywhere from six months to a year to fully emerge, depending on the specific surgeries performed. Generally, patients can return to their normal activities within about three weeks, but should avoid exercise and heavy lifting for at least 6-8 weeks post-surgery. Here’s a detailed recovery timeline for a Mommy Makeover, broken down into stages:

Day 1 to Week 1: Immediate Post-Operative Period

The first week after a Mommy Makeover is critical for recovery. Patients often feel discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which are managed with prescribed pain medications. Rest is vital, and gradual mobility is encouraged. Gentle, short walks help promote circulation, but it’s important to avoid overexertion. Following the surgeon’s wound care instructions precisely is essential for proper healing.

From weeks 1 to 3, swelling and discomfort usually start to subside gradually. This period may also include the removal of sutures or drains, following the surgeon’s guidance. Patients can slowly return to light daily activities but should still avoid strenuous exercises and heavy lifting. It’s important to pay attention to your body’s signals and not hasten the healing process.

Between weeks 4 and 6, patients often notice a substantial decrease in swelling and bruising. This progress may enable many to return to work comfortably, provided their job does not require strenuous physical activity. As healing continues, patients generally start to feel more like themselves. Nevertheless, it’s important to remain cautious with physical activities and follow the surgeon’s recommendations.

During weeks 7 to 12, patients can start gradually returning to their usual activities. Light exercise can be resumed, but only following the surgeon’s guidance. By this time, most major swelling should have diminished, and scars will begin to fade, though they will continue to heal and mature.

From 3 to 6 months post-surgery, patients typically observe the final results of their Mommy Makeover. Swelling continues to subside, and scars gradually heal and fade. It’s important to have regular follow-up appointments with the surgeon to monitor progress and ensure that healing is on track.

By six months post-procedure, patients typically witness the full results of their Mommy Makeover. At this stage, all swelling should have subsided, and scars will be considerably healed. To sustain these results, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and adhering to follow-up visits with the surgeon are crucial.

Stretch marks and scars after a Mommy Makeover

Stretch marks. Excess skin removal and skin tightening during a Mommy Makeover can reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The procedure often makes these marks less noticeable by tightening the skin and underlying tissues. Additionally, remaining stretch marks may be further minimized with skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser therapy and chemical peels.

Scars after a mommy makeover. While a Mommy Makeover can significantly enhance a woman’s shape and figure, it does involve some scarring, particularly from breast lifts and tummy tucks. Dr. Scottsdale® has refined his scar techniques during his military training, focusing on creating clean incisions and minimizing scarring as much as possible. The resulting scars are typically placed in areas that can be easily concealed by swimsuits or underwear.

Cost of Mommy Makeover

The cost of a Mommy Makeover in Phoenix can range from $15,000 to $50,000 or more. This variation is due to the combination of procedures involved, such as breast surgery, tummy tuck, liposuction, and sometimes a Brazilian Butt Lift. The overall expense depends on the specific surgeries chosen and their complexity, tailored to each patient’s needs.

At Natural Results AZ, we recommend consulting with our experienced plastic surgeons to discuss your Mommy Makeover options.
