Introduction to Mommy Makeover

Everyone loves babies, and whether you’re becoming a mother for the first time or even the fifth time, childbirth is such a beautiful experience. Some cons do come with pregnancy because it often leaves a woman with a thicker waistline, stretch marks, weakened abdominal muscles, sagging breasts, and excess loose sagging skin in the abdominal region. If you are proud of being a mom, but not so proud of how your post-partum body looks, a Mommy Makeover in Scottsdale is a wonderful option.

What are the Benefits of Mommy Makeover?

Being a new mother is a beautiful thing, but the changes to do to the body leave some women missing their original figure. Many of our patients have seen the following benefits from their Scottsdale Mommy Makeover surgery:

  • Clothes tend to fit better, providing a more shapely look
  • Makes your skin tighter and more youthful
  • Multiple procedures can be performed on one surgical date
  • Provides you with more enhanced cleavage
  • Removes stretch marks caused by pregnancy
  • Renews your self-confidence

What is Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of (typically) surgical procedures that can help a woman regain her figure after pregnancy and lactation. Every Mommy Makeover is personally tailored to meet the individual needs and desires of a patient and is a combination of various procedures to address all of these concerns at once, restoring a firm, flat abdomen, a more defined waistline, and tighter body contour in the torso.

These are some of the more common procedures that are performed in the average Mommy Makeover:

  • Arm Lift
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift
  • Body Lift
  • Butt Lift
  • Liposuction
  • Thigh Lift
  • Tummy Tuck

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting a Mommy Makeover in Scottsdale is to book a consultation at Plastic Surgery Scottsdale. When you come into our practice, you will meet with Dr. Golger and he will examine your body. After discussing the areas of your concern with you, he will help you decide the best combination of cosmetic procedures that will help you achieve your desired appearance and you will be able to ask any questions that you may have. Dr. Golger will also ask you some questions regarding your medical history and lifestyle, so it’s important, to be honest and open with him to prevent any unnecessary risks. Once you and Dr. Golger have both come up with the best solutions to fit your needs, he will create your procedure plan and your surgery will be booked with the help of our Patient Coordinator.

What to Expect on the Day of Mommy Makeover

On the day of your Mommy Makeover, you will begin with an administration of anesthesia, which will be general anesthesia or intravenous sedation, depending on what you discussed with Dr. Golger during your consultation. Once you are properly sedated, your surgery will begin.

Dr. Golger will discuss what you should expect on the day of your Mommy Makeover surgery, but for a better understanding of what your surgery will entail, please read the “What to Expect” sections for the following procedures:

Mommy Makeover Recovery

A compression garment will be given to each patient after surgery and is worn for the first several weeks to assist with swelling and fluid accumulation. Patients can experience significant pain and discomfort over the first week, as well as experience some swelling. The swelling tends to subside after the first three weeks post-surgery. A liquid or soft diet may be required for the first 24-48 hours after surgery. Patients can anticipate that their recovery will vary significantly between two and six weeks.

Patients generally feel well enough to return to work and other daily routine activities about two weeks after surgery. However, strenuous exercise should be postponed for four to six weeks after surgery. The results of the procedures will not be immediately apparent, they will take some time to fully unveil themselves, especially as the swelling and bruising subside. As the body heals over the next six weeks to three months, the patient will start to see full and more noticeable results.

If you would like to know more about the recovery process for individual treatments, please refer to their designated page on our website.
