Mommy Makeover FAQs

Mom with a little daughter are waist-deep in the sea water. In the age of body positivity, an important point has come to light; that what is of vital importance is a woman’s feelings about her own body. For some women, the physical and cosmetic changes brought on by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are more than they bargained for. These changes aren’t always correctable with diet and exercise, nor are they acceptable to every woman. Body-positivity means feeling at home in your own skin. Sometimes, this means addressing concerns with a Mommy Makeover. Here, we answer some commonly asked questions regarding this treatment protocol.

What is involved in a Mommy Makeover?

The general idea about the Mommy Makeover is that it has been developed for moms who want to restore the shape of their breasts and belly areas. This is true to some extent, but is rather limited in scope. What is involved in a Mommy Makeover can be a combination of several procedures and treatments. Examples include:

  • Breast augmentation or implant exchange
  • Breast lift
  • Liposuction (not limited to the abdomen!)
  • BodyTite
  • Abdominoplasty
  • Thigh lift
  • Brazilian Butt Lift
  • Vaginal Rejuvenation

How much does a Mommy Makeover cost?

Seeing that your Mommy Makeover is completely designed around your desired changes and treatment choices, you may have guessed that there is no set price for this process. During your consultation, we discuss what you would like to achieve and how we can accomplish your goals. Your treatments are outlined to include details pertaining to cost, downtime, and more. And if you have questions, our friendly staff will do their best to provide answers. 

Is Mommy Makeover recovery awful?

Patients are often quite concerned about the pain they may experience after a plastic surgery procedure, let alone a combination of two or more. We understand that this is an important question to address as early in the process as possible. The last thing we want is a stressed-out patient when clear communication can prevent that.  Mommy Makeover recovery is not awful. Patients are often surprised at how manageable their postoperative discomfort is. With rest and directed use of prescription medications, your recovery experience can stay limited to mild to moderate soreness.
