A Mommy Makeover is a wonderful option for restoring your body after pregnancy, to the way that it once was. Pregnancy, childbirth, weight gain and significant weight loss all can cause many physical changes to your body. The first step in your Mommy Makeover surgery is knowing what you want to change. Typically, a Mommy Makeover, which is a combination of several procedures, such as a breast surgery and abdominal contouring can help to achieve the desired results.
If you’re like many mom patients, you are probably interested in improving more than one area of your body. By combining multiple procedures like breast augmentation and a tummy tuck in one operation, you can get the results you want with only one recovery period. It also saves you money since you pay only once for anesthesia, medications, and facility fees.
A breast rejuvenation procedure such as a breast lift, breast augmentation, or a breast reduction, will bring your breasts back to the life they once had. Many women like the enlarged breasts that come with pregnancy and breastfeeding, however, once they no longer produce milk, the breast may decrease and can also deflate. Combining a breast lift and augmentation will allow your breasts to look rejuvenated and full once again.
Many mothers just like you have made the choice to get back their beautiful, perky pre-baby breasts. It’s easier than ever – and can help you look better than ever
Abdominal contouring can be done through either Liposuction, Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) or a combination of the two. As a result of childbirth or significant weight loss, fat distribution is no longer harmonious, stretch marks can occur, as well as excessive loose skin that is not responding to diet and exercise. Additionally, the fascia (a thin sheath of tissue that encloses a muscle or other organ) overlying the abdominal muscle begins to separate which leads to something called, a rectus diastasis (large separation of the abdominal muscles) and can only be repaired via surgery.
Some patients may choose to undergo a circumferential abdominoplasty (body lift) which has the added benefit of lifting the lateral thighs and buttock at the same time.
The Mommy Makeover procedure is performed as an outpatient surgery in an accredited surgery center. The recovery time may vary depending on the combination of procedures being performed, however, you can expect a range of 2-3 weeks.
Dr. Keith Neaman and Dr. Dustin Christiansen are board certified plastic surgeons and can discuss with you about body contouring and breast rejuvenation surgery options. If you are considering a Mommy Makeover and would like to learn more about the procedure and options for your particular situation, please contact Neaman Plastic Surgery to schedule your own personal consultation.
Dr. Keith Neaman discusses breast implant placement locations which are typically above and below the muscle. Most patients today will have the implant placed under the muscle which has specific benefits including shape and upper pole fullness.

A mommy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to improve the effects that pregnancy and childbirth can produce in a woman’s body.
A mommy makeover usually involves both a breast procedure as well as a tummy tuck. This can typically include any combination of breast surgery, including breast lift or reduction or possibly augmentation, as well as abdominoplasty, liposuction, belt lipectomy, body lift, and other body contouring procedures.
The best time to have a mommy makeover is after you are finished having your children, and your baseline body weight has returned to normal.
All procedures typically included in a mommy makeover are designed to produce long-lasting results. However, your body will continue to respond to factors such as age, weight fluctuations, and any future pregnancies.
You will find that Care Credit works much like a credit card, but it is designed specifically for medical procedures, such as mommy makeovers surgery financing and other elective procedures.
The recovery from mommy makeover surgery is quite varied. Some patients are young and bounce back, others are older and take longer to recover. For an “average” mommy makeover, patients can usually drive by one week, walk five miles on a flat surface by two weeks, and run by four weeks.
