AM I A CANDIDATE FOR A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
Ideal candidates for this surgery are patients who:
Have gone through childbearing
Have tried unsuccessfully to achieve a tighter, younger-looking body through diet and regular exercise
Are dissatisfied with the lingering effects of childbirth on their body, such as deflated or sagging breasts, extra skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks
Desire to live life without feeling self-conscious of these changes
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
Once leaving the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest. Recovery from a mommy makeover is generally a relatively lengthy process. Walking will be slow for the first few days, and a thorough at-home care protocol will be necessary to make sure everything heals properly. Most women find the healing process can last up to six months, but most patients are back to pretty normal in 4 to 6 weeks. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for about 6 weeks following the procedure. In the end, a mommy makeover at SBA Dermatology & Plastic Surgery can be life-changing for women, helping them once again reclaim their figure.
HOW IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER PERFORMED?
The mommy makeover procedure is a unique surgery tailored specifically for each woman by plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Couvillion based on the areas of concern. A variety of procedures can be considered together — the most popular treatments are breast lifts, breast implants, tummy tucks, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia and can last anywhere from 3 to 7 hours, depending on the complexity. In some cases, an overnight stay at the hospital may be needed.
MOMMY MAKEOVER FAQS
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs can vary greatly, depending on which procedures are part of your surgical plan. During your initial consultation, Dr. Couvillion will need to develop your treatment plan and then his staff will be able to discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is about rejuvenating your body and confidence after having children so it is best to concentrate on getting the results you want rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. SBA Dermatology & Plastic Surgery takes several payment methods, and we can give you information on finding low-interest medical financing to make your mommy makeover affordable.
How do I decide what procedures to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Couvillion, he will listen to your needs and concerns before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can give you suggestions on what to include in your mommy makeover. Most women include breast surgery (augmentation, lift, or both) along with a tummy tuck and liposuction.
Will a mommy makeover leave scars?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a rejuvenated figure, it does leave surgical scars. Dr. Couvillion will make every effort possible to create precise incisions that are as small as possible. Most scars will be placed so they can be concealed with swimsuits and underwear. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Couvillion or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care to ensure your incisions heal properly.
What if I get pregnant after a mommy makeover?
Ideally, you should hold off on having a mommy makeover until are finished growing your family so your results aren't compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk of changing if you get pregnant again. Should you have another child after a mommy makeover, your results will likely change and it may be necessary to have a revision surgery to reclaim your previous results.
