What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures performed during the same surgical session. These procedures are designed to address the physical changes that occur in women’s bodies due to pregnancy, childbirth, and/or aging. A mommy makeover is not a one-size-fits-all solution; the procedures included in the treatment are tailored to the individual needs and goals of the patient.

Some of the issues most commonly addressed during a mommy makeover include:

  • Sagging breasts
  • Loose abdominal skin and/or muscles
  • Stubborn areas of excess fat
  • Loose vaginal tissue
  • Loss of breast volume

Your Mommy Makeover Consultation

Your private consultation with Dr. Forman will be an integral part of the mommy makeover treatment process. Because each mommy makeover is different, Dr. Forman will need to fully understand your unique situation and what exactly you’re looking to achieve with the procedure. He will discuss your options with you and help you determine which procedures will help you achieve the figure you’re aiming for. Based on this information, you and Dr. Forman will then work together to put together a detailed treatment plan that’s custom-tailored to your needs.

What Is the Recovery Like?

The details of your recovery process will depend on the specifics of your mommy makeover treatment. Dr. Forman will give you thorough instructions to ensure that you heal properly and achieve the best possible results. You’ll experience some swelling and discomfort after the treatment, and you will be prescribed pain medication to alleviate the symptoms. You will be provided a surgical support bra or compression garment to wear for several weeks after your mommy makeover.

If you had a tummy tuck, drains may be placed to ensure there is no fluid buildup during the first few days. In most cases, patients need to rest for approximately two weeks after a mommy makeover before returning to work and resuming their normal routines. During this time, it’s important to eat healthy, stay hydrated, and take light walks periodically. You will need to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least four to six weeks, potentially longer based on the extent if your procedures.
