Get Answers To Your Biggest Mommy Makeover Questions From Schaffer Plastic Surgery 

Pregnancy and childbirth can be one of the most joyous occasions. However, the physical after-effects of pregnancy can be just as life-changing in a less joyous way. Post-pregnancy body changes can involve everything from sagging breasts and stretch marks to the notorious muffin top.

Unfortunately, many mothers realize soon after pregnancy that altering these areas through diet and exercise alone helps only so much, therefore, pre-pregnancy body confidence can be lost. The Mommy Makeover combines cosmetic procedures to target the physical issues mothers face that inhibit their post-baby confidence. Find out more about the Mommy Makeover procedures below.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a personalized cosmetic procedure designed to address the physical changes that occur in a woman’s body following childbirth and breastfeeding. This comprehensive makeover involves a combination of procedures carefully tailored to meet individual needs. 

Common components of a Mommy Makeover typically include breast augmentation or lift, tummy tuck and liposuction. The overall goal is to restore and enhance the breasts and abdominal area.

In addition, individuals opting for a Mommy Makeover can choose from various supplementary options at Schaffer Plastic Surgery to further customize their transformation. These additional choices may include BBL™ BroadBand Light Therapy, HALO™ laser skin resurfacing, Cool Sculpting® for non-invasive body contouring, diVa® vaginal therapy and Brazilian butt lift. The emphasis on personalization is vital with a Mommy Makeover to ensure that each plan of procedures is uniquely designed to address specific concerns and achieve the desired aesthetic goals for every individual.

Expected Results From a Mommy Makeover

Each person’s experience can be unique when it comes to results because a Mommy Makeover is fully customizable. Some patients want more subtle enhancements, while others seek more dramatic transformations. Nevertheless, the typical improvements can include: 

  • Restored breast volume 
  • Abdominal and breast skin tightening 
  • Repaired, stronger abdominal muscles 
  • Reduced stubborn fat pockets around the abdomen and other areas 

As with results, recovery experiences may vary depending on the procedures performed. Be sure to discuss how to prepare for at-home recovery with your chosen surgeon to create a comprehensive, safe recovery plan. You will be given guidance on things like how to take care of surgical sites, how long you will need to refrain from certain activities and what medications you can safely take to support recovery. 

Financial Considerations: Cost and Payment Options

Mommy Makeovers are elective procedures and not covered by medical insurance. The overall cost varies depending on the elected procedures and your specific choices. Many Mommy Makeover patients obtain financing through CareCredit, which is a healthcare-based credit card that allows you to pay for your makeover with affordable monthly payments. It is a good idea to apply for financing through CareCredit to determine if you qualify before scheduling your consultation unless you are paying with private funds. 

Deciding on the Right Time for a Mommy Makeover

The best time for a Mommy Makeover is once you feel your family is complete and do not plan to become pregnant again. If you do conceive again, the results of the procedures performed can be at risk. The areas targeted, such as the breasts or tummy, can restretch during pregnancy or even with other bodily changes like significant weight gain. Any good surgeon will work with you to ensure you schedule your Mommy Makeover at the right time for you.
