Mommy Makeover

A “mommy makeover” is a popular term that describes a series of plastic surgery procedures that are designed for women who have experienced childbirth. Mommy makeovers are always individualized for each patient, and they often include a combination of breast enhancement and body contouring procedures. Dr. Cho provides mommy makeovers for women who have unwanted body changes that occurred during pregnancy or after weight fluctuation.

Avg Cost: $15k - $25k
Avg Recovery: 6 Weeks
Discomfort Level:
Anesthesia: General or IV Sedation

You will meet with Dr. Cho to discuss your goals for a more youthful figure and the procedures that will be included in your mommy makeover. As a good candidate for a mommy makeover you should have stable body weight and realistic expectations. You should be motivated to improve your appearance, and you should not be planning on any more pregnancies in the future.
 
You will be instructed to stop smoking at least four weeks prior to surgery, and Dr. Cho will review your medications and supplements. If you suffer from chronic pain and you are on an opioid regimen, you will need to consult with the anesthesiologist before surgery.

Cosmetic breast surgery is a common part of the mommy makeover. Dr. Cho can restore fullness to your breasts or elevate them to a more youthful position with a breast lift or breast augmentation. Breast augmentation requires placement of a saline or silicone breast implant, while the breast lift requires surgical tissue tightening to correct breast sagging.

 

Abdominoplasty, commonly called a tummy tuck, can help create a flatter abdomen and repair stretched muscles on the abdominal wall. There are variations in technique that Dr. Cho may recommend, including a mini-tummy tuck that involves a shorter incision.

 

Dr. Cho can use liposuction to remove persistent areas of localized body fat, such as the arms, thighs, tummy, back and neck. For safety, a limited amount of fat can be removed with liposuction. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure but a proven mommy makeover method of selective body fat removal.

Your mommy makeover will combine several surgical procedures in a single session. The mommy makeover is customized to your needs, and may include a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, a breast lift and liposuction. You might also include a perineoplasty that will tighten the entrance to the vagina and a vaginoplasty to repair and tighten the floor of the vagina. Some people also add a Brazilian butt lift for contour.

PROS

CONS

  • You will have anesthesia only once for several procedures.
  • You will have only one single recovery period.
  • You can return to the youthful look you had before pregnancy.
  • The doctor may be able to help with medical issues during surgery, such as hernia repairs, urinary incontinence and back pain.
  • You will need 2-4 weeks of downtime and up to three months for a full recovery.
  • You may be left with scarring from procedures including a tummy tuck.
  • Future weight gain can have a negative effect on the results of your mommy makeover surgery.

While the procedures included in a mommy makeover are considered to be safe, they carry some risk. Infection and DVT blood clots are some of the risks of surgery.
