Mommy Makeover Q & A

 

 

What is a mommy makeover?

Pregnancy can cause significant changes in your body. You might put on excess weight or notice unappealing changes to your figure. A mommy makeover is a surgical procedure -- or series of procedures -- to address these changes.

The goal of a mommy makeover is to restore your body to its pre-pregnancy shape or to restore your youthful appearance. Common areas that a mommy makeover addresses include:

  • Stomach
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Waist

The specifics of your mommy makeover depend on your areas of concern.

What does a mommy makeover entail?

A mommy makeover may consist of one or more of the following procedures:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck

Your recovery and results will vary depending on which procedures you choose to undergo. Before any procedure, Dr. Levine will discuss the specifics of your recovery and how quickly you can expect to see results.

Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover?

Choosing to have a mommy makeover is a personal decision. Dr. Levine can talk to you about the steps involved in the procedure, your recovery, expected results, and potential risks.

You may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you:

  • Are in overall good health
  • Are at or near your ideal body weight
  • Have realistic expectations about the results you can achieve
  • Don’t plan on having any more children

Dr. Levine typically recommends that you don’t get a mommy makeover to meet someone else’s beauty standards — do it for you.

Is a mommy makeover safe?

As with any procedure, there are risks involved with a mommy makeover, including:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Recurring pain
  • Anesthesia complications

Before making your decision to undergo a mommy makeover, Dr. Levine will discuss the details of the procedure with you. This consultation is a great time to address any concerns you may have and learn what the realistic expectations are for a mommy makeover procedure.
