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 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.
