If the effects of pregnancy on your body have left you frustrated and self-conscious, you’re not alone. A mommy makeover may be the solution to restore your appearance and your confidence.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to reverse the negative effects of pregnancy on the body. Fluctuating hormones and weight during pregnancy followed by breastfeeding often lead to unwanted changes to your body, such as sagging breasts, excess skin and fat around the abdomen, stretch marks, and more.

At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we’ll help you regain your pre-baby body and your confidence with a mommy makeover tailored to your needs. Our board-certified plastic surgeons are experienced in various procedures to reverse the effects of childbirth.

Mommy Makeover Procedure and Recovery

A mommy makeover can include a variety of procedures depending on the results you want. Because of this, every patient’s procedure and recovery will look a little different.

Dr. Sozer or Dr. Phillips will perform your mommy makeover under general anesthesia, which will take a few hours. You’ll be able to return home the same day with the help of a friend or family member. 

Your recovery process will be unique to your procedure and your physical condition. Swelling, bruising, and soreness are normal for a few weeks after the surgery, and you should have help with routine chores and childcare for the first few days.

You should expect to take at least two weeks off work. Many women can return to regular activities within a few weeks, but you will need to avoid strenuous activities for about a month and a half. Full recovery from a mommy makeover takes several weeks.

What Procedures are Included in a Mommy Makeover?

El Paso Cosmetic Surgery offers several procedure options for your mommy makeover to ensure the best results. The most commonly included procedures address the breasts and abdomen.

Breast Lift or Breast Augmentation

Nursing and weight changes during pregnancy often lead to sagging and loss of volume in the breasts. Many women choose to have a breast lift for increased perkiness, or breast augmentation to restore breast fullness and symmetry.

Tummy Tuck

Pregnancy frequently leaves behind excess skin and fat around the stomach and can also stretch or damage the abdominal muscles, leading to a drooping, flabby abdomen. A tummy tuck can remove excess tissue and repair muscles for a slimmer, more contoured torso.

Liposuction

Liposuction is an effective way to regain definition and contour when stubborn fat deposits don’t respond to exercise and healthy eating. Liposuction can remove fat from the thighs, arms, abdomen, and more.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

If you’re done having children and are ready to get your pre-baby figure back, it may be time for a mommy makeover. Ideal candidates are healthy non-smokers that are already at their target weight. You will need to wait at least six months after breastfeeding before having a mommy makeover.

I had breast augmentation done in November, it’s been 3 months, and I am loving the results. Dr. Sozer did an amazing job and the staff was very friendly.
