Having a child is one of the most incredible and rewarding events that can happen in a woman’s life. However, this should not have to mean sacrificing your own appearance. The effects of pregnancy and childbirth, breastfeeding, and a changing metabolism can leave you with a body that no longer feels like your own. A mommy makeover is designed to give you back the beautiful figure and confidence you deserve by addressing the various physical changes your face, breasts, and body have experienced since having children.
We would love to speak with you about your specific post-pregnancy goals and concerns. To learn more about our award-winning practice or any of the breast enhancement or body contouring services we provide, please call our office at 734-971-0262 to schedule a complimentary initial consultation. Board-certified surgeon Jessica West, DO, welcomes women and men in the Ann Arbor, Plymouth-Canton, Brighton, and nearby Michigan areas, as well as those traveling from out of town.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a personalized combination of different cosmetic procedures designed to address the changes experienced throughout the process of having children. During your consultation with Dr. West, she will carefully analyze your body and listen to your specific goals and concerns in order to come up with the best options for your mommy makeover.
Common procedures performed as part of a mommy makeover include:
- Tummy Tuck: Can minimize the appearance of stretch marks, loose abdominal skin, or a protruding belly
- Breast Lift: Repositions drooping or sagging breasts to a natural, more youthful position
- Breast Augmentation: Replenishes lost breast volume
- Liposuction: Reduces stubborn areas of diet and exercise resistant fat, such as in the waist, hips or thighs
Mommy Makeover Benefits
Mommy makeover surgery can help give women back their pre-baby bodies, often along with a life-changing boost in their confidence. Women who undergo a personalized mommy makeover with Dr. West are able to address common issues many mothers struggle with, including:
- Stretch marks
- Breast sagging or droop
- Loss of breast volume
- Loose abdominal skin
- A “mommy pouch”
- Stretched abdominal muscles
- Loose skin around the arms and legs
Your mommy makeover will be completely personalized to your unique situation in order to create the most natural outcome. This surgery is designed to help you look and feel like the best version of yourself.
Ideal Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Ideal mommy makeover candidates are women who want to reverse the physical changes they have experienced as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and a changing metabolism. If you are planning on future pregnancies, we recommend waiting until you are done having children before considering a mommy makeover.
Mommy Makeover Recovery & Follow Up
Recovery following your mommy makeover will vary depending on the procedures performed. Most women choose to have their mommy makeovers performed as a single surgery when possible, in order to minimize the amount of time spent in surgery and recovering.
While your body heals, it is important to get plenty of rest and allow your family to help. We will schedule follow-up appointments and help to guide your care as your body recovers. Full recovery after a mommy makeover will typically take several weeks depending on the procedures performed. Please rest throughout this process and follow all post-surgical instructions provided to you by Dr. West.
Mommy Makeover Results
The results of your mommy makeover are designed to be permanent. Your body will look and feel the way it did before having children – or possibly even better than you remember! Many women experience higher levels of self-confidence, and are happier in their everyday lives, including time spent with their partners.
As you continue to get older, your body will continue to change normally. The best outcomes can be maintained by continuing to live a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and plenty of exercise.
The Cost of a Mommy Makeover
The cost of your mommy makeover will vary based on several factors including the specific combination of procedures chosen, and whether you are undergoing a single surgery, or several individual surgeries spaced over time. You will be provided with a detailed estimate for your mommy makeover based on the various items discussed during your consultation. At this time, we will also be more than happy to discuss the different payment and financing options available at Michigan Center for Cosmetic Surgery.
