What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is sought by individuals who wish to address physical changes that can occur after pregnancy and childbirth. This comprehensive approach helps restore a more youthful and balanced appearance, addressing concerns such as sagging breasts, abdominal changes, that may include separation of the rectus muscles, or diastasis recti  and stubborn fat deposits. By combining various procedures, a mommy makeover allows individuals to achieve multiple aesthetic goals in a single transformative experience, guided by Dr. Bolitho's expertise.

What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

Moms often choose a mommy makeover to reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies and regain their confidence. This transformative combination of procedures offers a range of benefits:

  • Comprehensive Transformation: A mommy makeover addresses multiple areas of concern in a single surgical session, providing comprehensive results.
  • Restored Breast Aesthetics: Breast augmentation or lift can rejuvenate breast volume and shape, counteracting post-pregnancy changes.
  • Toned Abdominal Contours: A tummy tuck tightens abdominal muscles, removes excess skin, and restores a firmer midsection.
  • Contoured Silhouette: Liposuction targets stubborn fat deposits, enhancing body contours.
  • Customized Approach: Each mommy makeover is tailored to individual needs, ensuring personalized and natural-looking results.
  • Improved Confidence: A restored appearance often leads to increased self-esteem and body confidence.
  • Efficient Recovery: Combining procedures reduces overall recovery time compared to separate surgeries.

When Should a Mommy Makeover Be Done?

A mommy makeover is typically recommended when a woman has completed her family planning and is no longer considering future pregnancies. It is also advisable to wait until she has fully recovered from childbirth and breastfeeding. The ideal timing varies for each individual, but a mommy makeover can be considered:

  • After a significant weight loss post-pregnancy.
  • When physical changes from pregnancy and breastfeeding have stabilized.
  • When a woman is in good overall health.
  • When she has realistic expectations and goals for the procedure.

What to Expect After the Procedure

After your transformative mommy makeover, you can expect a period of initial healing and discomfort. Dr. Bolitho and his team will closely monitor your progress and provide guidance throughout your recovery. While individual timelines may vary because of the individualized procedure plans, most clients gradually resume light activities within a couple of weeks and experience the full, stunning results within a few months, allowing you to relish in your revitalized appearance and newfound confidence.
