Mommy Makeover

Your children are worth all the stretch marks and breast sagging you went through to get them, but that doesn’t mean these unfortunate after-effects of pregnancy have to stick around. With a mommy makeover at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center, women can restore their bodies to a more youthful appearance after pregnancy.

If you love your kids, but are less than thrilled with your post-baby body, it’s time to talk about a mommy makeover. Contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. As one of the most experienced plastic surgery practices in Sarasota, our team has the skill you need to feel confident in your body again after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

Pregnancy changes the body. A mommy makeover seeks to reverse these changes and restore a woman’s body to a more youthful appearance after pregnancy and childbirth.

How does a mommy makeover alleviate post-pregnancy body concerns like stretch marks or sagging breasts? A plastic surgeon uses an individualized combination of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic treatments to address common post-pregnancy body complaints.

By combining treatments, women can enjoy enhanced results with fewer trips to the operating room. It’s often possible to perform several treatments together, reducing recovery time significantly.

What Procedures Can You Include in a Mommy Makeover?

Pregnancy always changes a woman’s body, but it doesn’t always do so in the same way for everyone. Some women will experience breast volume loss and lax abdominal muscles. Other women may struggle with stubborn, lingering fat deposits or changes to the vaginal and labial areas. Since pregnancy’s effects are so varied, a mommy makeover requires a specialized, customized approach. A skilled surgeon can design a mommy makeover specifically for each patient, working with you to plan the procedure around your goals.

A customized approach ensures each woman can achieve her ideal appearance without unnecessary downtime or expense. Our surgeons focus on getting to know each patient, their lifestyle, and their goals. A mommy makeover at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center is never one-size-fits-all.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Mommy Makeover in Sarasota?

Patients with changes to their body after pregnancy can consider a mommy makeover. This set of aesthetic procedures reverses many unwanted post-pregnancy changes. Since most prescription medications used in aesthetic surgery are likely unsafe for pregnant or breastfeeding women, we recommend patients wait until your baby is born and weaned from breast milk.

Typically, we suggest scheduling this procedure at least six months after your final pregnancy, when you are no longer planning to carry future children.

You can have a mommy makeover performed shortly after pregnancy or many years later. Our patients range in age from their 20s to their 50s or older.

What to Expect From a Mommy Makeover

Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center is one of the oldest and most established plastic surgery practices in Sarasota. Our team of surgeons built this practice from the ground up, with a focus on creating superior outcomes and providing an ideal patient experience. Our surgeons have performed countless mommy makeovers on women throughout the area. Receiving a mommy makeover is typically a three-part process. Let’s walk through the steps of this procedure.

Consultation


The first step to a mommy makeover in Sarasota is the consultation, where prospective patients meet with our team of doctors, nurses, and other staff to plan the procedure. During a consultation, patients learn more about mommy makeover surgery, receive an examination, and ask questions. If you’re curious about this procedure, we encourage you to reach out and schedule this first step.

Surgery


All surgeries take place at our state-of-the-art surgical facility, located on the top floor of our plastic surgery center. While you are resting under general anesthesia, your surgeon will perform the selected procedures to achieve the desired aesthetic result. The amount of time needed for surgery will depend on the procedures you choose and the condition of your skin and body. In most cases, a mommy makeover is an outpatient procedure, and you can return home on the same day.

Recovery


A mommy makeover is a combination treatment, which can mean a slower recovery. Within three weeks, most women have healed enough to return to work and daily activities. We ask patients to limit strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for six to eight weeks after surgery. Tenderness, bruising, and swelling are all common during recovery. It can take several months for these side effects to fully resolve and for the results to be visible.

FAQs About Mommy Makeover in Florida

Providing patients with a safe surgical experience is a priority at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. While all surgery carries risks, our team will work closely with each patient to minimize these risks and plan a safe procedure. For most patients, a mommy makeover is a safe and effective option for rejuvenating the body after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.

Pregnancy causes many changes to the body, and a mommy makeover can reverse many of these. We recommend waiting to schedule a mommy makeover until you are no longer planning additional pregnancies. While undergoing surgery doesn’t affect your ability to carry a baby to full term, the strain of carrying a growing fetus can result in many of the same unwelcome changes your mommy makeover originally addressed. Patients who are uncertain about their plans for childbearing should let their surgeon know and discuss the best treatment approach.

Many patients find they have significantly fewer stretch marks after a mommy makeover. Trimming excess skin in a lifting procedure will take stretch marks along with it. You can address any remaining stretch marks with laser treatments or chemical peels.

Some scarring is likely after a mommy makeover, but our surgeons take care to minimize scars and place incisions in subtle, discreet locations. You’ll be able to hide most scars under swimwear or undergarments.

The cost of a mommy makeover will depend on the unique selection of procedures included in the surgery. Patients receive a personalized quote during their consultation.

The procedure time for a mommy makeover depends on the type and number of surgeries included. The average time is five to six and a half hours, but your surgery may require more or less time. Your surgeon can provide a more accurate estimate during your consultation.
