Mommy Makeover in Phoenix and Surprise

Just because you have kids doesn’t mean you have to have a “mom body”. Many women want to get back to their original body after having children so that they can feel like themselves again. If this sounds like you, our specialists at Regency are here for you.

What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a very popular cosmetic treatment that addresses the areas of the body that have been changed by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. It’s actually a combination of procedures that are all done at once, and each operation will be customized to target your specific problem areas. The procedures most commonly include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and either a breast augmentation, lift, or reduction.  

The benefits of a mommy makeover

The physical traits of being a mother—pregnancy, breastfeeding, and childbirth—are widely known to take a toll on the body. The stomach stretches to accommodate the baby, and can leave behind loose skin and stretch marks. The breasts can often sag and appear deflated after nursing. There can be leftover baby weight that just won’t budge. 

These body changes can significantly lower a woman’s self-esteem and confidence, and many women choose a mommy makeover to get their body back to where they want it. It’s very effective and popular, as it delivers dramatic results in just one surgery and recovery time, and it is also highly customizable to meet the unique needs of each individual.

Is a mommy makeover just for mommies?

No. This treatment gets its name because it targets the areas that are associated with an after-pregnancy body—however, these same areas can affect a person who doesn’t have children. Loose skin of the abdomen, stretch marks, and sagging breasts can also be the trademarks of a body that has lost a considerable amount of excess weight. A mommy makeover is often an ideal procedure for this condition.

Mommy makeover surgical details

It’s very important for those undergoing a mommy makeover to know two things before they have the procedure:

One, that you are completely finished having children. Two, that the weight you’re at is the weight you want to remain at. If you become pregnant or fluctuate in weight after your mommy makeover, it will disrupt the results. 

A mommy makeover is usually an outpatient surgery performed under general anesthesia. The amount of time it will take will depend on the specific procedures you’re having done, but generally it takes 4 to 5 hours. 

Your surgeon will be able to give you a better idea of the step-by-step surgical process during your consultation, once you have decided which procedures you want. Every patient will choose a different combination of treatments for a mommy makeover; however, in general, the procedures can include:

  • A breast augmentation, lift, or reduction
  • A tummy tuck
  • Tightening of the abdominal muscles
  • Liposuction (thighs, arms, love handles)
  • Cosmetic injectables 

Recovery 

Patients undergoing a mommy makeover should plan on taking a couple of weeks to recuperate properly, and expect it to take around four weeks before you’re 100% back to normal activities (including any kind of high intensity exercise). 

Discomfort and tolerable pain will be experienced for about a week after your surgery, and it could be up to two weeks before you are able to drive, although everyone heals at different speeds. 

Many patients schedule their mommy makeover around when they can have someone come to help them. After the procedure, you will definitely need help for a couple of weeks, especially if you have children.
