What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover rejuvenates the breasts and abdomen with a single surgery. Typical mommy makeover patients want to fix sagging, bulging, and rolls around the belly, as well drooping and deflated breasts. Many women appreciate having procedures combined because they gain a more complete body transformation than with staged surgeries, and they have only one recuperation period. In addition, combining procedures saves them money on facility and anesthesia fees.

When is the right time to have a mommy makeover?

You should wait until you’re finished having children and no longer breastfeeding, which is usually at least 6 months to a year after the birth of your last child. Many mommy makeover patients have older children and are finally ready to do something special for themselves.

Are all mommy makeovers the same?

While each mommy makeover Dr. Ching performs is completely personalized, most include 2 or more of the following breast enhancement and body contouring procedures:

  • Tummy tuck: Many women are left with excess skin and abdominal muscle laxity after pregnancy, and no amount of exercise can reduce it. Dr. Ching can address concerns with a tummy tuck, which can also sometimes remove stretch marks and C-section scars.
  • Liposuction: Stubborn pockets of fat that are left behind after pregnancy can be eliminated with liposuction for the abdomen, hips, thighs, and flanks.
  • Breast lift: Dr. Ching can reshape and reposition sagging breasts to give them a perkier, more youthful look.
  • Breast augmentation: Dr. Ching can insert breast implants to restore or add volume and improve breast shape.
  • ThermiVa®: This nonsurgical, no-downtime treatment uses radiofrequency energy to tighten vaginal tissue and renew sensitivity for women who are unhappy with changes to their vaginal area after childbirth.

What can I expect during recovery after a mommy makeover?

You will require 1 to 2 weeks of downtime, depending on the specifics of your mommy makeover. We will give you specific instructions on how to care for your incisions, what medications to take, as well as information on which activities you should avoid. Dr. Ching will encourage you to resume light walking right away but avoid strenuous exercise for a couple of weeks.

Are mommy makeover results permanent?

After your surgery, you will experience some swelling and bruising, but your results will likely be visible very soon, particularly if you have breast enhancement procedures. Mommy makeover patients tend to be the most satisfied among all plastic surgery patients because the procedure provides such a comprehensive change.
