Becoming a mother is a journey filled with countless joys as well as some unexpected physical changes. And, unfortunately, the body doesn’t always return to what it looked like before having children. That’s where a mommy makeover comes in! With this combination procedure, you have the opportunity to reclaim your pre-pregnancy body and reveal a more confident you. 

But what exactly does a mommy makeover consist of? Let’s take a look at this life-changing procedure and how Dr. Cranford, Dr. Ulm, and our whole team at CCPlastics can help you become your best self. 

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of surgeries that address any changes to the body that haven’t gone away post-pregnancy. The procedures can include but are not limited to tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction. By performing these procedures in one surgical session, you only have to go through one recovery period.

Who is a Good Candidate for A Mommy Makeover?

If having kids has changed your body, but diet and exercise haven’t been enough to help you return to your pre-pregnancy physique, you are likely a great candidate for a mommy makeover. 

Whether you struggle with the size or shape of your breasts, sagging skin around your midsection, or unwanted fat on different areas of your body, a mommy makeover can address all those concerns and more.

Some of the criteria we look for when determining whether a patient is a good candidate for a mommy makeover include:

  • In overall good health
  • Has realistic expectations
  • Done having children
  • Done breastfeeding

Mommy Makeover Recovery

After your mommy makeover, you will notice some swelling, bruising, and discomfort as you begin your recovery journey. While you may see some results immediately, most of the improvements won’t be fully visible until your swelling goes down.  Before you leave the office, Dr. Ulm or Dr. Cranford will give you aftercare instructions so you’ll know how to take care of your incisions and what to avoid to ensure proper healing.

You’ll need to take at least two weeks of work and limit your activity level. You will likely be able to return to light activity after 3-4 weeks, but strenuous activity must be avoided for at least 6-8 weeks.

You will start to see significant results about three months after surgery, and those will continue to improve up to a year later.
