Mommy makeover procedures have become popular with women who are unhappy with their post-pregnancy bodies. Pregnancy and childbearing can take a transformative toll on a woman’s body, and sometimes diet and exercise just aren’t enough. You might have heard from mommies who have undergone a makeover and have questions of your own. Here are some common questions to know about mommy makeover surgery.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is just that— a makeover. It’s a catch-all term for a set of surgical procedures that have the goal of restoring a woman’s post-pregnancy body and are often done all at once or within a couple sessions. This makeover is customized to fit the needs of your post-pregnancy body, which can vary since pregnancy and childbearing affect every woman’s body differently.

What can be fixed with a Mommy Makeover?

The most common areas treated with a mommy makeover are those that take the hardest impact during pregnancy. This includes the stomach, breasts, and lower body. The procedures which correct these include:

  • A tummy tuck, which can tighten the underlying abdominal muscles and remove fat, excess skin, and stretch marks.
  • A breast augmentation, reduction, or lift, which can restore the breasts to their pre-pregnancy shape and size.
  • Liposuction procedures, which can remove excess fat from various areas that is stored during childbearing and can be resistant to diet and exercise.

These various procedures can often be completed within one session by a skilled surgeon, meaning your downtime and recovery will be reduced. Many mommies also undergo nonsurgical procedures as part of their makeover process if they are beginning to feel the effects of aging or stress.

What should I consider before I undergo a Mommy Makeover?

Your overall health is the most important thing to consider before you commit to your procedures. It’s very important that you’re able to undergo invasive surgery and successfully heal from it, as this will have the most impact on your results. You should also consider your reasons for pursuing a mommy makeover, and be ready to discuss them during your consultation with Dr. Sieber.

To make sure you get the best out of your results, you should make sure you have no further plans for pregnancy, as this means you might require another procedure.

What is the recovery from a Mommy Makeover like?

Your recovery time will depend on how extensive your makeover is. Healing your incisions might require maintenance of any drains that are placed to help collect fluid that builds up, and wearing compression garments to aid blood flow. You’ll need to refrain from certain activities that might agitate the surgical sites, and any pain can be managed with prescribed medications. Be sure to follow any instructions given by Dr. Sieber after your procedure.

If you have any further questions and would like to discuss them, contact our office for a consultation with Dr. Sieber.

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
