Scheduling Your Mommy Makeover Consultation

The best time to decide on exactly which procedures you want to include in your Mommy Makeover is during your cosmetic surgery consultation. 

Follow these guidelines to ensure the time is right to schedule this visit with your plastic surgeon.

  • The ideal time to undergo a Mommy Makeover is when you are finished giving birth, and your expected pregnancies are complete.
  • Waiting for six months after nursing your baby will allow your surgeon to accurately assess your breasts and help them create an appropriate surgical plan.
  • Anticipating the ability to recover from surgery and having some help for the first few days/weeks after surgery should be part of your plan.

Your Mommy Makeover Options

When you are ready for a body makeover, you have several options to restore, recontour, and enhance your figure. These traditionally include two or more of the following procedures. 

  • Breast lift (mastopexy): Maintain your cup size, but restore your breasts’ youthful perkiness. This surgery removes excess skin and tightens tissues to elevate the breasts.Illustration of before and after tummy tuck surgery.
  • Breast implants (mammaplasty): Receiving implants or breast augmentation will enhance the size and shape of your breasts. The implant size is entirely customizable to achieve your desired fullness.
  • Liposuction surgery: Remove stubborn pockets of fat that resist diet and exercise. This can be performed nearly anywhere on the body.
  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty): This procedure can reduce fat, tighten abdominal muscles, and remove loose skin for an improved waistline and smoother, flatter tummy.

Additional surgical or non-surgical options may also be recommended or desired as part of this process. If there is an area you wish to address that will not be targeted with the above procedures and techniques, ask your plastic surgeon for other options. 

Learning more about these procedures can help you understand the Mommy Makeover process better and can allow you to make informed decisions during your consultation.

Choosing Your Mommy Makeover Surgeon

A Mommy Makeover involves comprehensive surgical procedures, and you will want to have confidence in your plastic surgeon. Be sure they have many years of experience and have the training to back that experience up. 

Ask to see before and after photos of the procedures you have chosen to get an idea of the kind of results you can expect during your consultation, or check them out on their website.
