Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy can be a wonderful period in any woman’s life, but many mothers find it difficult to restore their bodies after giving birth. Mommy Makeovers are designed to target those areas most affected by pregnancy and to help women regain their bodies and their confidence. Dr. Thomas McNemar personalizes each Mommy Makeover, helping patients from Tracy and Modesto to Pleasanton, CA, and around the Bay Area correct sagging skin, remove pockets of fat, and take care of other problems that are often difficult or impossible to change through diet and exercise.

Mommy Makeovers offer the opportunity to slim the abdomen and create more attractive breasts with a single surgery and recovery period. Request a consultation online at Dr. McNemar’s San Ramon or Tracy location and receive a complimentary excerpt from Dr. McNemar’s new book, Breast Augmentation & Body Contouring, which includes information you need to know about what it takes to make body contouring plastic surgery successful.

What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?

Mommy Makeovers combine popular plastic surgery procedures to provide comprehensive results for women who have had children. Typically, women choose a  combination of the following:

  • Breast enhancement surgery, such as breast augmentation or a breast lift to enhance the shape and size of the breasts. Some patients also combine a breast lift with augmentation to create a more youthful appearance and a fuller shape.
  • Abdominoplasty, often called a tummy tuck, is one of the most effective procedures for restoring the body after pregnancy. Women commonly choose this procedure to remove sagging skin, excess fat and stretch marks that form around the abdomen. Dr. McNemar also tightens abdominal muscles that may have stretched out during pregnancy causing a belly bulge.
  • Liposuction to enhance the contours of areas such as the waist, hips, and thighs. It is a relatively simple procedure that uses a thin tube to remove small pockets of fat and bulges.

Why Choose a Mommy Makeover?

Mommy Makeovers help mothers with a variety of cosmetic concerns to achieve their ideal bodies. Dr. McNemar customizes each procedure to meet the needs of the patient, resulting in individualized results. Motherhood can be a wonderful experience, and many women find that a Mommy Makeover allows them to feel more comfortable as they engage in physical activities with their families. Cosmetic surgery can relieve some of the physical burden caused by sagging skin or excess weight, and many mothers develop a new sense of confidence following their procedures.

For many moms, liposuction, breast enhancement, and tummy tuck can be the perfect combination of procedures to help regain their figures after giving birth and achieve their ideal bodies.

What Is Mommy Makeover Recovery Like?

One of the benefits of combining procedures is going through only a single recovery period. Recovering from a tummy tuck usually poses more physical limitations than breast surgery or liposuction. It’s important to have help around the house because you’ll need plenty of rest to help you heal as quickly as possible. Pain relief medication prescribed by Dr. McNemar is available when needed to help maintain your comfort. He’ll provide detailed postoperative instructions that are important to follow to reduce the risk of complications.

Frequently Asked Mommy Makeover Questions

Is it safe to combine different surgical procedures?

Yes. Combining cosmetic breast surgery with a tummy tuck and liposuction is very common and safe. The key is selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. McNemar, who is experienced performing Mommy Makeover procedures. He puts your well-being first and is careful to ensure that he creates a surgical plan that can be completed efficiently and safely.

What does a Mommy Makeover cost?

The price of a Mommy Makeover depends on the procedures included, the techniques Dr. McNemar uses, and a number of other related factors. The advantage of having multiple procedures performed during a single operation is saving certain costs, such as operating room and anesthesiologist fees. Because cost is always a consideration for our patients, we offer financing options for qualified patients.

I went in for just a tummy tuck consultation i didnt know what to expect and i walked in super nervous. The doctor and his nurses made me feel super comfortable. And instead of the doctor just giving me a quote and sending me on my way. I feel he really took his time and answered all my questions and even gave me extended resources so that i can achieve the results i want. He seemed like he really cared about me and my journey. I cant wait to go back in 6 month 😄

I was very nervous about this surgery. Walking into the office I was greeted with a warm, inviting welcome. Then I met the Doctor and was so impressed with his comforting bedside manner, that I knew I was in good hands. The surgery went very well and I am beyond pleased with the results. I was expecting more scarring, but they are very minimal. Dr. McNemar has stayed in constant contact with me through the entire experience. 🙂 Stacey

Staff is very caring and professional. Dr McNemar has a very nice bedside manner. He makes you feel very comfortable and answers all your questions. Talks to you how procedure will be done and if you have any questions feel free to ask. You do not feel rushed. The front office seems to be busy. But the wait is too long!

How long should I wait after having children to get a Mommy Makeover?

A woman’s body continues changing for some time after pregnancy. Once your weight is stable and your breasts aren’t changing, the next step would be to schedule a consultation to have a board-certified plastic surgeon complete a thorough physical assessment. If you’re breastfeeding a child, you should wait at least 3 to 6 months until after you’re finished before undergoing surgery. It’s also important to remember that your physical activity – including lifting an infant or toddler – will be limited during your recovery. You will need a spouse or partner to help with young children.

You deserve to have your Mommy Makeover performed by a plastic surgeon who makes your surgery convenient and is committed to beautiful results. Request a consultation today and receive a complimentary excerpt from Dr. McNemar’s new book. Or, call (209) 834-0626 for our San Ramon office or (925) 967-2804 for our Tracy office to make your appointment.
