Bearing children, from pregnancy and childbirth to breastfeeding, are a unique, special part of a woman’s life that bring joy. At the same time, the process of carrying, birthing, and nursing children can also impact a woman’s body. Unfortunately, the female physique is often changed in unwanted ways, from a loss of breast volume or youthful elasticity to stretch marks or a pooched tummy. The changes the female physique undergoes can cause women to lose some of their self-confidence and feel they want to restore aspects of their feminine appeal.

At The Ariel Center, we provide a mommy makeover procedure–a combination of surgical procedures done in one surgical session–to renew and restore your pre-pregnancy figure and boost your self-esteem.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination surgery designed to rejuvenate and enhance the female figure after pregnancy and childbirth. Every mommy makeover is customized to suit the needs and goals of each woman, but the surgery typically includes 2-3 procedures that renew the breasts, abdominal area, unwanted fat pockets, sagging skin, and other concerns, such as a  prominent C-section scar. During your consultation, we will determine the areas you would like to address and enhance and which surgeries would be best for you. 

The mommy makeover provides the benefit of having all the wanted procedures done in one surgical session, achieving a significant range of improvements and enhancements with only one time going under general anesthesia and one recovery period. The goal of the procedure is to leave you feeling confident and at peace with your beautiful figure as a mother.

What are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

There are many benefits of having a mommy makeover procedure. Benefits vary from woman to woman based on the combination of procedures they choose for their mommy makeover. Benefits typically include the following:

  • Overall, a more youthful-looking, revitalized, appealing feminine figure
  • Lifted, shapely, and beautiful breasts
  • Breast symmetry
  • A youthful-looking breast appearance
  • A tight, flat abdominal area
  • A more toned, slim appearance in various areas of the body
  • Less time under anesthesia for a wide range of benefits
  • One recovery period for multiple procedures, resulting in reduced overall downtime

Who is a Candidate For a Mommy Makeover?

What Procedures are Included in a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover will typically include two, three, or more of the following surgeries:

Breast Augmentation (implants or fat transfer)

The breasts are enhanced to be larger and more shapely with a choice of implants: silicone, saline implants, or gummy bear. Breasts can also be made larger by about one cup size with a fat transfer. After breast augmentation, the breasts appear full, appealing, and symmetrical.

Breast Lift

During a breast lift, the breasts are lifted higher on the chest wall and excess skin is removed to address sagging. The breasts are shaped to provide a more attractive, youthful-looking, and perky bounce.

C-Section Scar Revision

During this procedure, the scar left after a C-section is addressed to make it less visible and raised.

Liposuction

Pockets of fat that are difficult to reduce are removed with liposuction, a technique that breaks up the fat tissues and suctions them out. Fat is eliminated to achieve a more toned, sleek appearance.

Tummy Tuck

During a tummy tuck, the abdominal muscles are tightened with permanent sutures. Excess fat and skin are removed to contour the waistline and achieve a firm, flat, sculpted appearance.

Labiaplasty

The labia are reshaped and made smaller by removing excess skin. Labiaplasty makes the area more comfortable and appealing.

What is the Recovery Like After Surgery?

The recovery period after a mommy makeover varies from woman to woman, based on the procedure chosen for the surgery. Most women will need at least two weeks of downtime to rest and recuperate. Arrange for family or a friend to help at home with heavy lifting, including carrying children, or other work.

You will wear pressure bandages, which ensure your body heals properly in its new contours and swelling is minimized. If you had a tummy tuck, there will be drains around the abdominal area, which will be removed after several days.

Most women can return to light, sedentary work after about two weeks. Wait to engage in any type of more vigorous activity until at least six weeks have passed and you have the okay from your surgeon.

When Will I See the Results of My Mommy Makeover?

You will notice some initial changes right away. However, the healing process must complete before you see significant, long-term changes in your physique. After about six months, most of the swelling will be fully reduced. You will be able to enjoy full, beautiful breasts, a tight, flat abdominal area, a better toned, slimmer physique, and other positive changes. The results of your procedures are very long-lasting, leaving your figure shapely and appealing for many years.
