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 breast enhancement procedure, such as breast augmentation or a breast lift to enhance the shape and size of their breasts. Some patients also combine a breast lift with augmentation to create a more youthful appearance and a fuller shape.

One of the most effective procedures for restoring the body after pregnancy is a tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty. Women commonly choose this procedure to remove sagging skin, excess fat and stretch marks that form around the abdomen. Dr. McNemar also tightens muscles that may have stretched out during pregnancy.

After Dr. McNemar performs a tummy tuck and a breast enhancement procedure such as breast augmentation, he will sometimes recommend liposuction for enhanced contours. This relatively simple procedure uses a thin tube to remove small pockets of fat and bulges that appear in various places around the body.

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 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.

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.
