Before Your Mommy Makeover
Dr. Daniel takes a patient-centered approach to help you achieve your personal goals.
Even after losing the baby weight, many women find that they struggle with specific problem spots that they haven’t been able to improve through diet and exercise. The right combination of procedures can help resolve these concerns, especially when working under the guidance of an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Daniel.
During your consultation, you can talk with Dr. Daniel about your personal appearance goals. From there, you can decide together the best approach to help you reach those goals. For many women, a combination of cosmetic surgery and nonsurgical procedures can complement each other to bring out the best in your face and body.
Although pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing impact each woman differently, the breasts and tummy are typically affected the most. For this reason, different options for breast enhancement and body contouring can be customized specifically to meet your particular needs.
Breast augmentation performed using silicone or saline breast implants can add volume to deflated breasts to help you reclaim your curves after pregnancy and nursing.
A breast liftcan raise and reshape your natural breast tissue to enhance your figure without the need for implants. In many cases, a breast lift and breast augmentation are combined to increase cup size while restoring a perky, youthful breast profile.
Tummy tuck surgery repairs the abdominal muscles that often separate after one or more pregnancies, and also removes excess skin and fatty tissue from your waistline.
Liposuctionpermanently removes excess fatty deposits that remain behind even though you’ve reached your target weight, like a “muffin top” or love handles. Lipo is often performed along with a tummy tuck for even more impressive body contouring results.
Because each woman’s body is different, other women may pursue breast reduction, liposuction in other areas of the body like the inner thighs or under the chin, or even nonsurgical medical spa treatmentsto help them look more youthful and refreshed.
Dr. Daniel will work closely with you to plan the optimum approach for your procedures, as well as the right combination of procedures themselves, to make sure you see the results you deserve.
Healing Process for Your Mommy Makeover
Since a mommy makeover is customized to each woman’s needs, the recovery process will vary somewhat for every woman as well. Typically, you may feel sore and uncomfortable at first, but be back to a light daily routine within a week or two. Swelling may persist for another month, and you should see your final results by about 6 months after surgery.
After your mommy makeover, you can expect to see a slimmer, shapelier figure that includes a flatter, firmer tummy and more streamlined silhouette. Many women say they not only feel better about themselves physically, but also notice a huge boost in self-confidence as a result of their new look.

The best candidates for a mommy makeover are women who are done having children and have reached a target weight that they plan to maintain in the long run. Although it’s completely possible to have a healthy pregnancy after a mommy makeover, you would likely feel as if your results were “undone” after a subsequent pregnancy and additional surgery may be necessary to get those results again. For this reason, it’s best to consider waiting until you’re sure your family is complete before moving forward with your surgery.
What Procedures Are Included In A Mommy Makeover?
There’s a common misconception that a mommy makeover includes specific procedures, but the truth is you can customize your mommy makeover to address your specific concerns. Procedures that are commonly included in a mommy makeover are breast augmentation and a tummy tuck. However, many women opt to include other procedures, such as a breast lift, buttock enhancement or liposuction, to help them look and feel their best.
How Soon After Childbirth Can I Have A Mommy Makeover?
Although you may be anxious for a mommy makeover so you can regain your pre-pregnancy body, waiting until the right time will yield the best results. Most surgeons recommend that women wait a minimum of 6 months after pregnancy and breastfeeding so that their hormones can reach their normal levels. That also leaves time for you to reach your target weight and adopt a healthy and active lifestyle.
Will I Have Scars?
Any surgical procedure involves some scarring, and a mommy makeover is no exception. However, most women find that their new body shape more than makes up for a little scarring. Dr. Daniel takes special care to make all incisions as discreet as possible and can advise you on the best aftercare for scars. Keeping the incision sites well moisturized and protected from direct sun exposure will help your scars heal to a point of being barely detectable.
How Soon Will I See My Final Results?
You should see a difference in your figure immediately following surgery, but your final results will take some time to develop. Because every mommy makeover is different, the speed of your recovery will vary. However, most women are able to get a good idea of their results after about 3 months, with their final results developing anywhere from 6 months to 1 year following their appointment.
