Rediscover Your Confidence With a Mommy Makeover

Sagging breasts, muffin top and stretch marks—ask any mother if she has experienced any of these after-effects of childbirth, and she will likely say yes. Snapping back to a pre-pregnancy body after childbirth is easier said than done. For women who are unable to achieve their body goals through diet and exercise, the Mommy Makeover is here. With a Mommy Makeover, you can get your perky breasts, flat stomach and tight skin back again after having children.

A Mommy Makeover is a personalized combination of procedures to help your body resemble what it used to look like before childbirth and breastfeeding. Typically, women receive a combination of procedures that includes a minimum of a breast augmentation or breast lift with a tummy tuck and liposuction. Other options that may be added to your Mommy Makeover are BBL™ BroadBand Light Therapy or HALO™ laser skin resurfacing to address pregnancy-related skin pigment changes; SculpSure® for non-surgical treatment of isolated fatty areas; non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation with diVa® vaginal therapy; a Brazilian butt lift to enjoy a shapelier rear end; or other procedures to address specific concerns.

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

Achieving a more beautiful body is not the only advantage of a Mommy Makeover! Your journey to a “new you” will begin with a detailed, judgement-free consultation with our expert plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Schaffer. During the appointment, you will be able to take your time discussing any concerns about your body and Dr. Schaffer will present a personalized plan to achieve your desired goals. You will receive discounted pricing on all procedures and treatments included in your Mommy Makeover when scheduled as a package. As an added benefit to your peace of mind, Dr. Schaffer is dedicated to maximum safety before, during and after his patient's procedures, routinely performing house calls and providing his cell phone number for after-hours access.

Another benefit of a Mommy Makeover is reduced recovery time. Your Mommy Makeover will have you looking and feeling fabulous faster when multiple procedures are performed during one single operation. Depending on your combination of procedures, Dr. Schaffer may opt to spread them out over multiple sessions for safety or lifestyle reasons. Since your procedures will be conducted by the same surgeon, you’ll know your total body health is being closely monitored.

Results of a Mommy Makeover

Since Mommy Makeovers are customizable, the results can range from subtle to very dramatic. You will achieve the best results if you are already at or near your target weight and in good health.

Most women who get a Mommy Makeover will see the following improvements:

  • Lost breast volume replaced
  • Tightened skin on the breasts and abdomen
  • Weakened abdominal muscles repaired
  • Stubborn pockets of fat reduced

Your Mommy Makeover procedures will be performed as outpatient surgery and you will recover in the comforts of your own home. As most women choose to have a combination of treatments performed during one surgery, you can expect a longer recovery time than you would with only one procedure; however, most patients agree that one lengthier recovery is better than the alternative of spacing procedures and subsequent multiple recoveries apart. You must also consider the logistics of your Mommy Makeover, ensuring you have a loved one to assist you at home while you rest and allow your body to heal.

Deciding on a Mommy Makeover

Since a complete Mommy Makeover is a financial investment, timing should be strongly considered. It is best to have a Mommy Makeover after you are finished having children, as experiencing another pregnancy and breastfeeding will re-stretch the breasts and abdomen. You should also consider the quality of your surgeon and facility. Only choose an experienced plastic surgeon who is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and holds memberships within the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Schaffer is a nationally recognized expert and innovator in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery. An excellent choice for your Mommy Makeover, he has more than 20 years of experience and is a member of the Mentor LEAD Advisory Board, a prestigious group of plastic surgeons selected for their leadership and experience in shaping the future of breast augmentation.

Another advantage of choosing Dr. Schaffer for your Mommy Makeover is his private state-of-the-art outpatient surgery suite, which is certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities for adhering to the highest standards of safety. The facility is located across the street from Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama and offers ample, convenient parking and a well-appointed waiting room for your family’s comfort.
