MOMMY MAKEOVER

Mommy Makeover is a popular term used in Plastic Surgery but means something different to each patient. In general, it is a surgical procedure that addresses any and all concerns that a mother typically has following the changes that occur with childbirth and breastfeeding.

Who is a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

 

During childbirth, the “ab muscles” and skin are stretched towards the end of pregnancy. These changes can result in stretch marks and permanent stretching of the tissue in between the ab muscles. In addition, some women find it difficult to lose some of the fat deposits in the abdomen that were gained during pregnancy. For women who choose to breastfeed, their breasts will often go through permanent changes and will lose fullness and develop loose skin when they stop breastfeeding. 

 

For these reasons, a Mommy Makeover usually refers to a combination of a Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, and a Breast Lift, Augmentation, or Augmentation Mastopexy depending on the patient’s needs or desires. 

 

In addition, many patients that have had children via vaginal birth may benefit from Labiaplasty to address the changes that can occur to the vaginal tissues. 

 

 

 

What should a patient expect during and after a Mommy Makeover?

Depending on the procedures performed, there will generally be a 2-6 week period without heavy lifting. It is helpful to arrange for friends or family to assist with young children in the household because there will be a restriction on lifting children for several weeks after surgery.

 

 

 

What results can a patient expect from a Mommy Makeover?

 

Patients can expect a significant improvement in overall body shape and contour. They can expect each of their concerns to be addressed according to a custom treatment plan.

How visible will the scars be after my procedure? Is the benefit worth the required scars?

 

​At Walker Plastic Surgery, we care about your scars almost as much as you do. As a Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Walker takes pride in optimizing every scar to its best potential. Each patient will naturally be prone to making a certain type of scar color, thickness, and width, but our promise at Walker Plastic Surgery is to do everything in our power to make the scars as hidden, as small, and as blended as possible to the surrounding skin. To do this, we use a multi stage evaluation and treatment method consisting of scar evaluations throughout your healing process. Using industry leading technology, we counsel and provide our patients with access to multiple scar reducing treatments including:

 

  • High quality, low tension skin closure and well designed scars

  • Early application of Medical Grade scar cream 

  • Medical Grade Suncreen to prevent sun damage to sun exposed scars

  • Steroid injections as needed for scars that are raised or thicker than desired 

  • Microneedling and/or Morpheus 8 Radiofrequency Microneedling for thickened scars or poor scar texture

  • Laser IPL Treatments for red pigment in scars

  • Hydroquinone lightening cream for brown pigment in scars

  • Scar revisions, usually under local anesthesia, for areas of scars less than optimal after final healing. 

The scar healing process takes approximately 1-2 years from surgery to final result, and therefore we offer our patients multiple evaluations during the healing process so that proper treatments at the proper times for the best healing possible. With this multi stage evaluation and treatment scar program, we continue to put emphasis into producing the highest quality scars possible for our patients. Don't let the fear of a scar prevent you from having the shape and contour you deserve!
