Mommy Makeover

As a mom, it can be tough to take care of yourself when the demands of motherhood take up most of your time. Even when you can carve out time to exercise and eat well, your body doesn’t always respond in the ways you might want it to. Your breasts may look different. Your tummy might have loose skin that sags over your pants, and you might have excess stubborn fat in areas you never thought you would. These changes can make you feel frustrated and discouraged about regaining the body you once knew. A Mommy Makeover can not only restore your figure but can also give you the body you’ve always wanted. Dr. Boll’s expertise helps moms regain their confidence by restoring their pre-baby body and giving them back their beautiful, contoured figure.

What a Mommy Makeover Can Achieve

Mommy Makeover Options

There are three common options for breast enhancement with the Mommy Makeover: breast lift, breast augmentation, or a combination of the two. A breast lift will improve the positioning of the breasts. If the breasts are drooping below the crease at the chest (inframammary fold), the procedure can restore their natural positioning higher on the chest while also elevating the nipple-areolar complexes. If one desires to enhance the size of the breasts, breast augmentation with the addition of either silicone or saline implants will increase breast volume and improve the shape of the breasts. Some patients may wish to undergo both procedures to attain youthful, perky breasts with enhanced volume.

To restore the pre-baby tummy, a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) will result in tighter skin and a more stable abdominal core. Abdominoplasty targets the skin that sags around the midsection and any minor pockets of fat that may be lingering. Dr. Boll will reshape the skin over the tummy contours and gently pull it tight. Before closing the incision, she will excise the excess skin, leaving the tummy smooth and free from any sagging skin. In some cases, it may also be necessary to address weakened abdominal muscles. Dr. Boll will tighten the muscles with sutures before tightening the skin.

Liposuction is often combined with abdominoplasty to help remove more significant pockets of fat. A cannula is inserted through small incisions, and fat is extracted. Dr. Boll is able to precisely contour the midsection as she removes these fat pockets. Liposuction targeting additional areas of the body can also be performed during a Mommy Makeover.

Patients can include additional procedures in their Mommy Makeover to target specific problem areas. While the above options are the most common procedures performed during a Mommy Makeover, patients are not limited to them. Dr. Boll can review the list of available procedures to help determine how best to proceed and meet your goals.

Concerns

Recovery

Every recovery is different based on which procedures you choose. Swelling and bruising are common after any surgical procedure. This is temporary and will subside within the first few weeks following your procedure. A compression garment should be worn as well to help minimize these effects and aid in the recovery process. Dr. Boll will provide a list of aftercare instructions to ensure the best results following surgery.

For the first few days, rest is advised. Keep your body reclined (with your head above the body) to promote blood flow through the body and help minimize swelling. Most patients resume light daily activities after the first few days and can return to work after the first week or two. More strenuous activities (such as exercise) should be avoided until cleared by Dr. Boll.

Scars

The visibility of scarring depends on a variety of factors, including the body’s ability to heal. Whenever possible, incisions are made in natural body contours or hidden from view so they will be inconspicuous. If this is not possible, visible scars may lighten gradually over time.

Cost

The cost of a Mommy Makeover depends on a variety of factors. The biggest determining factor is the choice of procedures performed. Costs will increase as the number of procedures increases. Dr. Boll will provide a detailed estimate of costs during the pre-surgical consultation. We have financing and prepayment options available to patients.

Pain

Moderate pain is typical after the procedure. The severity and duration of this discomfort will depend on the number of procedures performed and the conditions addressed. Dr. Boll will provide suggestions for pain medication to manage any discomfort. For any concerns about pain, or if the pain becomes too severe to manage, please contact our office immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no way to guarantee how long your results will be maintained, but typically, a Mommy Makeover provides long-lasting results. While you will see significant improvements in your appearance, they are not necessarily permanent. Significant shifts in weight can undo the results of liposuction and tummy tuck surgery. Additionally, aging can affect the positioning of the breasts, and even implants may require replacement.

There are risks associated with all surgical procedures, including:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Poor scar healing
  • Reactions to anesthesia

Dr. Boll will provide clear instructions for preparation for surgery and your aftercare. By following these instructions, you will minimize your risk of complications.

Your Mommy Makeover is performed under general anesthesia. A board-certified anesthesiologist will monitor you during your procedure.

During your consultation with Dr. Boll, she will provide a detailed list of pre-operative care instructions. It is advised that you prepare for your surgery by following these instructions carefully. If applicable, you should cease any smoking at least six weeks prior to your surgery. Smoking hinders blood flow and can affect the healing process. Aspirin and other specified medications should also be avoided to reduce the risks of excessive bleeding during surgery.
