Mommy Makeover Q & A

What is a mommy makeover?

Hormonal changes and the stress that pregnancy and nursing put on the body often leave mothers feeling less than confident about their figure. A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to restore your pre-baby body. 

Your customized mommy makeover tightens skin, removes excess tissue, and replenishes the volume of your curves in their proper aesthetic dimensions. When performing a mommy makeover, Dr. Mullins tailors cutting-edge procedures performed with advanced technology to create stunning, personalized results that look natural and feel wonderful.

Which concerns can a mommy makeover address?

A mommy makeover is customized to address specific concerns you have about your own body. Some of the procedures that Dr. Mullins includes in a mommy makeover are:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Breast reduction
  • Tummy tuck
  • Buttock lift
  • Buttock augmentation
  • Body contouring
  • Vaginal rejuvenation

During your initial consultation, Dr. Mullins discusses all of your body-enhancement goals with you in detail. He then determines which procedures are best for your needs and selects types of implants, surgical techniques, and other options to achieve your individual goals.

How is a mommy makeover performed?

Dr. Mullins typically performs all procedures in a mommy makeover as one surgery under general anesthesia. He positions incisions carefully based on your individual body shape. 

When all procedures are complete, you spend some time in recovery before going home. Some patients go home the same day, but more complicated procedures may require an overnight hospital stay.

How long will my recovery take?

Recovery after a mommy makeover depends on exactly which procedures were included, but can take several weeks for a full recovery. You can expect swelling, bruising, and discomfort. 

You might also have to wear bandages, gauze, drainage tubes, or a compression garment for a week or two. Dr. Mullins provides you with pain medication, antibiotics, and detailed instructions for at-home care during your recovery. 

It takes a little time, but your impressive results make it worth the wait. Soon, you can see the curves and contours you remember from the days before motherhood, and others will notice your stunning new silhouette as well.
