What is a Mommy Makeover?

Offered by Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville, the mommy makeover includes any procedures needed to rejuvenate the body, including liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and labiaplasty.

Those who have given birth know that body changes with pregnancy – sometimes a little, sometimes a lot – and we understand the effect this can have on patients; both of our board-certified female plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville are mothers themselves.

Most patients who pursue a mommy makeover have experienced some degree of breast changes, which can generally include a decrease in volume, sagging, or larger nipples. The abdominal wall may also change, creating extra skin and separation of the vertical muscles. Some patients may have stubborn fat deposits that weren’t there before the hormonal changes that occur with pregnancy. Further, changes in the labia can develop.

Mommy Makeover Frequently Asked Questions

Because your treatment plan procedure combines a variety of different surgeries, women often have many questions regarding the process. Below, you will find a list of frequently asked questions.

Of course, if you don’t see your specific question, or still have concerns, you are welcome to contact the trained and professional staff at the Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville by calling 615-476-6777.

We combine different surgeries to restore a woman’s body after the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. These procedures are generally (and conveniently) performed at one time

The ultimate goal is to focus on the areas of the body most impact by childbirth and pregnancy, such as the breasts, tummy, and waistline. Therefore, treatment frequently includes breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, and a labiaplasty.

Of course, there is no law or rule that says a patient has to get all of the surgeries listed above performed. Further, some women choose to also have facial rejuvenation techniques completed. The procedure is completely subjective and individualized depending on each patient’s wants, needs, and overall goals.

As with any type of major surgery, unforeseen risks and complications can arise. However, these risks and complications are less likely to occur when the procedure is performed by a skilled, trained, and experienced professional, such as at the Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville.

In short, it is safe to have multiple surgeries performed at once. During your initial consultation, your doctor can discuss the risks involved with each particular surgery, and how likely they are to take place. This conversation with your doctor should help you feel more informed, prepared, and comfortable.

There are many benefits to having multiple surgeries performed at one time, such as only one recovery period, less exposure to anesthetics, and one charge for both the operating room and anesthesia required for the procedure.

It’s best to let your body return back to normal as much as possible. Specifically, you should be at a steady weight for at least three months, be engaged in a healthy lifestyle (i.e. regular exercise and diet), and done breastfeeding, which will give your breasts a chance to return to their original state before pregnancy and childbirth.

It depends on how quickly you plan to have more children. It’s best to schedule a mommy makeover once you are completely finished having children, as further pregnancies can compromise a tummy tuck and breast lift. More so, if you plan to have children within the next couple of years, it’s best to wait to schedule the procedure. Yet, if you plan to wait longer than a couple of years to have more children, then you may have treatment. Of course, every individual is different. Ultimately, the choice of when to have the surgeries performed is up to you.

The amount of time needed for recovery will depend on which procedures you have performed. Of course, the more surgeries you have done, the longer amount of time you will need for recovery. Generally, it’s best to have about two weeks set aside to recover. You don’t want to push your body to do anything it’s not ready to do. Your body will continue to improve over the next few months, with the final results becoming visible in about six months.

During the recovery period, it’s important to get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, avoid direct sunlight, and to avoid any type of strenuous activity or exercise. In fact, before you start working out again, it’s best to get cleared by your doctor.

The price of your treatment plan will depend on how many different surgeries you choose to have performed. Of course, the more surgeries that are performed, the higher the cost. During your initial consultation with your doctor, you can discuss the overall rice of the procedure, as well as possible payment options.
