Get the Figure You Desire with a Mommy Makeover
Motherhood can be one of the most rewarding things one experiences in a lifetime. For many women, motherhood also comes with a great deal of sacrifice and changes to the body. It is common for women to lack sleep, exercise, and nutrition due to the demands of parenthood, but even with proper diet and exercise some women have a hard time getting their body back to what it once was. A mommy makeover can help you regain your body’s youthful appearance and improve your self-image.

A mommy makeover is designed to help restore a woman’s body to its original, pre-pregnancy shape through a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures. The most common post-pregnancy issues that are addressed are:
- Deflated, sagging, or uneven breasts
- Stretch marks
- Loose skin
- Excess fat
It is important to understand that the mommy makeover is not one specific procedure, but a combination of procedures. Dr. Angelchik will consult with you to see what your personal aesthetic goals are in order to customize treatment to meet your unique needs. Your mommy makeover may include a combination of the following:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast reduction
- Breast lift
- Asymmetric breast augmentation
- Tummy tuck
A combination of these procedures can generally be performed at once, meaning you won’t require multiple sessions of downtime and recovery. However, there are limits to how long your surgical session can safely last, so Dr. Angelchik can recommend the right treatment plan for you. A mommy makeover can be worthwhile in restoring your self-esteem and making you feel like yourself again.
Mommy makeovers have become increasingly popular over the last several years. When a woman goes through pregnancy, childbirth, and breast-feeding, the body experiences a number of changes. In many cases, getting back the body that you desire isn’t always as easy as diet and exercise. The best candidates for a mommy makeover procedure are those that have experienced negative changes due to pregnancy and childbirth that require surgical correction. However, it’s important that you have no further plans for pregnancy in order to maintain your best results. If you’re a new mother, it’s important that you be fully recovered from childbirth, no longer nursing, and have returned to a normal hormonal state.
Every woman’s mommy makeover procedure is unique because everyone experiences pregnancy and childbirth differently. During a consultation, Dr. Angelchik can help you create the right mommy makeover procedure that will address your concerns and restore your natural figure. In general, these three areas are most commonly addressed during a mommy makeover:
The breasts can be negatively affected by pregnancy and nursing in many ways. However, many women are left with breasts that are deflated, enlarged, or saggy. In many cases, a combination of breast implants, breast lift, or breast reduction can be performed to reshape and rejuvenate the breasts to your desired profile.
Pregnancy and childbirth can cause the stomach to become stretched, loose, and ineffective at supporting the upper body. In addition, it can accumulate fatty deposits that are difficult to get rid of. A tummy tuck procedure can not only restore the shape and appearance of the stomach, but it can also tighten the underlying muscles, allowing the more effectively support the upper body and pelvic region. Many moms find medical benefits from a tummy tuck, including a reduction in back pain and urinary incontinence.
Many women experience fat accumulation in the lower body and hips during pregnancy, which can remain or leave behind stretched and saggy skin. Some moms benefit from a lower body lift or thigh lift after pregnancy, or a liposuction procedure to reduce fatty deposits.
A mommy makeover procedure can require an extensive surgical session at an accredited facility with general anesthesia. Because multiple procedures are combined into one surgical session, a mommy makeover can require upwards of six or eight hours, depending on how extensive your unique procedure is. Dr. Angelchik will ensure you know what to expect during your surgery and whether you will require an overnight stay.
A big benefit of a mommy makeover is the convenience of a onetime recovery. In many cases, women come in at different times to receive a number of different cosmetic procedures and have to go through the recovery process on numerous occasions. By having all procedures performed at the same time, you will only have to go through recovery and any discomfort associated with it once.
However, a mommy makeover can come with extensive downtime, depending on your unique procedure. You can expect pain and discomfort, but these can be managed with prescribed medications. You may be required to wear surgical compression garments, depending on your procedure. This can aid blood flow, help the skin adhere to new contours, and support any new implants, so it’s important to follow your care steps regarding wearing these. You should be sure to arrange for childcare for one or two weeks, if needed, since you will be unable to lift or bend during your initial recovery. Dr. Angelchik can indicate during your follow-up appointments when it’s safe to return to your normal activities.
