About Mommy Makeover
Plastic Surgery Vegas frequently works with women who want their pre-pregnancy physique back. Even though childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment for a woman, it often will alter the look, shape, and size of various body parts — and could leave one feeling frustrated. The most exciting news is that it's possible to get a slim and taut appearance, thanks to the help of the mommy makeover procedure performed at Plastic Surgery Vegas. The mommy makeover procedure uses a blend of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to target the abdomen and breasts, and other affected body parts — essentially any body part affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding can be addressed. Furthermore, nonsurgical remedies can be incorporated to repair surface irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation from the quick fluctuation and stretching of the tissue and skin during pregnancy.
Mommy Makeover Reviews
"I had a mommy makeover (breast implants with lift, tummy tuck, labiaplasty, and mons lift) with Dr. Silver and Dr. Edwards. I'm about 6 weeks post op and have been really happy with my experience and results so far. I never have to wait long at my appointments, everyone is super friendly, and both Dr's are knowledgeable and attentive. They both explain everything in detail and never make you feel rushed. I highly recommend both of them. I'm not one for writing reviews but I know I did a ton of research before landing on Plastic Surgery Vegas. Hopefully this helps people who are researching now. You will not be disappointed."- R. / Google / Dec 22, 2021
"I have worked with both Dr. Edwards and Dr. Silver and I can’t say enough about them. Their professionalism and knowledge are unmatched compared to my experiences with other plastic surgeons and their work is flawless!! I have had two procedures with Dr. Edwards (explant/lift and new implants later with mommy makeover) and not only have they both come out looking amazing but he is incredibly patient and allows you to take the lead with what you want without any pressure. I tell everyone I know to go to him first when considering breast work! It was by chance when researching for a tummy tuck that Dr. Silver’s name came up repeatedly as the best, so I was thrilled to be able to do a mommy makeover with both Drs. After two babies born in two years I barely recognized my torso and Dr. Silver did incredible work to make me feel like myself again. I was terrified that the scarring wouldn’t be worth it but his work is so precise and hidden; I’m so happy I did it!"- L.P. / Google / Dec 26, 2021
"Dr. Higgins and all of the staff are exceptional!! Getting my body back after multiple pregnancies and other health issues has been a long journey for me. When I finally succeeded at reaching my goal weight, I was thrilled to be able to finally get to do the “mommy makeover.” It’s a big scary decision and finding such a caring and attentive doctor, nurses and staff is difficult. I was impressed by Dr. Higgins consultation where I didn’t feel pushed into anything I wasn’t comfortable with. He listened carefully to the look I wanted to achieve, and he assured me that he wouldn’t do anything he wouldn’t do to his own family. His assistants were more than helpful answering my emails and inquiries quickly. Before, during and after the surgery they were available and checked on my progress. The operating staff was also so sweet and kind and put my nerves at ease, keeping me laughing till I went in. Dr. Silver even worked when the office was closed during a holiday to get my pesky drain out! (THANK YOU!). Everything went smoothly and I am so ECSTATIC about my results. I did this so I can keep up with my family and gain my confidence back to participate in all the activities that used to hold me back due to being so self conscious. I haven’t felt or looked this great in 20 years!! Nothing can hold me back now! Now I go regularly for skin care as well! This place is gem in our desert. Dr. Higgins and Plastic Surgery Vegas staff, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!! - V"- V.Q. / Google / May 19, 2022
"Exceptional, amazing, world-class! I could throw adjectives at this wonderful clinic and staff all day and still not do it justice. The professionalism, level and standard of care, and attention to detail are simply the best around. I received consults at several places and was completely convinced this was the right fit for me as soon as I started my consult with Dr. Silver. His expertise and bedside manner put me instantly at ease and I knew instantly I had found "my" surgeon - or one of them, as it eventually turned out. I was consulting for a breast lift and implant replacement as well as a tummy tuck - a "mommy makeover." I felt perfectly at ease with Dr. Silver doing the entire set of procedures, but he recommended - in my best interest health wise AND financially - to have two surgeons simultaneously and cut my time under anesthesia. I agreed and did a second consult with Dr. Edwards about a week later. The combined procedure was scheduled just a couple months out and they were even able to accommodate my request to push it back a month so I could get a short notice shoulder surgery first. I was pretty anxious having a few big procedures in a very short time span, but couldn't be happier with my results or my recovery. I'm convinced that everything from their pre-op care, sending a nurse home with me for my first night after surgery and all of the fantastic follow up care have led to my very quick recovery time. Friends who had the abdominoplasty warned me it was a very painful and arduous recovery. I was off pain meds (except basic Tylenol and then muscle relaxers at bedtime) within 2 days, drain-free and walking fully upright within a week. Obviously that's not a typical recovery, but I'm attributing a large portion of it to the skill of the surgical team and the post op care. You cannot go wrong with this place!! Amazing results and their glowing reviews and solid 5 star rating speak for themselves! Get in for that consult and let them work their magic - you won't regret the decision. Best of luck in your transformation! <3"- L.C. / Google / Nov 12, 2022
"I searched the whole Las Vegas area for the perfect doctor to handle my mommy makeover with a skilled hand, easy going, and perfection. Dr Higgin’s is amazing!!! Plus, you get to work with a sweet, funny, and wonderful staff!"- C.K. / Google / Jan 21, 2023

Mommy Makeover surgery
A mommy makeover is a unique surgery tailored for patients by our surgical team based on the areas of concern that need to be addressed. Many procedures can be considered together — the most common treatments are breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed using general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours, depending on the number of treatments. In addition, a day-long stay at the hospital may be needed. It is common to also incorporate nonsurgical skin procedures, such as laser treatments and injectables, to soften facial wrinkles and reduce surface imperfections.
Recovery After Mommy Makeover
Once leaving the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest. The recovery process is generally a lengthy process. Walking will be hard the first week or so, and a step-by-step, at-home treatment protocol will be provided to help the incisions and sutures heal properly. The majority of women find the healing process can last about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to return to a normal routine within several weeks. Working out should wait for around two months. In the end, this surgery at Plastic Surgery Vegas can be an amazing journey for women, giving them their self-confidence once again.
Mommy makeover FAQS
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation, we will listen to your concerns and goals before performing a physical examination. Following this, we can make suggestions on what to include in your surgical plan. Most women want a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift), plus liposuction and a body lift.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body so nonsurgical procedures are usually not enough to get the results you want. In your consultation, we will explain both nonsurgical and surgical options. Based on your needs and goals, we will let you know if procedures, like CoolSculpting, vaginal rejuvenation, or noninvasive skin tightening, can be helpful.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover offers a beautiful new figure, it does leave some scarring. Our surgical team will do our best to make clean, small incisions and place them in areas that can be hidden with clothing. As part of your post-surgical care instructions, we will give you tips on scar care so your stitches heal flat and eventually fade.
What if I get pregnant again?
We recommend that patients wait to have a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so the surgical results are not compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk of changing if you got pregnant again. Should you get pregnant after a mommy makeover, another surgery may be performed to refresh your results.
