What is a Mommy Makeover?

Expert plastic surgeon Dr. Jerry Chidester, or Dr. Chiddy, can help women get their pre-pregnancy body back. While childbirth is an exciting and amazing moment for a woman, it can change the tightness and shape of certain body parts. This may cause frustration or make you feel self-conscious. Thanks to modern medicine and new techniques, women can achieve a slim and toned body. To help women attain their rejuvenated and refreshed look, Dr. Chiddy offers the mommy makeover. The mommy makeover combines several innovative treatments, including skin tightening and liposuction. During the procedure, Dr. Chiddy will remove excess skin, reduce fat, and target different areas of the body. He can help improve the appearance of the breasts, tummy, or lower body. Essentially, Dr. Chiddy can help with any part of the body affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding. Additionally, he can perform nonsurgical procedures that reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation or blotchy skin. This often happens because of the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the skin, tissue, and underlying muscles.

Is A Mommy Makeover For You?

This treatment works well for patients who are no longer pregnant and breastfeeding and do not plan on becoming pregnant again. If you have tried to attain a tighter figure through diet and exercise with little results, a mommy makeover could provide the results you want. For many women, surgery is necessary to reclaim their pre-pregnancy shape. A mommy makeover can help with the side effects of pregnancy, such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted pockets of fat in the hips, thighs, lower back, and buttocks. Dr. Chiddy strives to help you slim your profile so you can resume life without worry.

What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover offers many major benefits aside from helping women feel rejuvenated and refreshed. Because it involves multiple procedures, patients can target several problem areas at the same time. Achieve a trimmer waistline, flatter abdomen, and tighter breasts in just one surgery. We can even make recommendations about nonsurgical treatments to create glowing skin and reduce common signs of aging. Our mommy makeover is the best option if you want to improve your self-image and confidence moving forward.

How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?

A mommy makeover is a custom treatment that Dr. Chiddy tailors for each woman and is based on their cosmetic goals and concerns. Depending on your needs, we can combine many procedures together. This may include popular treatments, such as liposuction on the thighs, breast lift surgery, breast implants, or tummy tuck surgery. The timing of your surgery is based on how many treatments you receive so it could last around 3 – 7 hours. Before starting your procedure, Dr. Chiddy will administer general anesthesia so you remain comfortable. Also, you may need to stay overnight for careful monitoring. For additional enhancement and to rejuvenate the complexion, your treatment plan might include nonsurgical methods, like injectables.

What Can I Expect After a Mommy Makeover?

After leaving the hospital, we will discharge you so you can start to recover at home with rest. Generally, recovering from this surgery is a slow process. For the first few days, you may have some difficulties standing upright. However, we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure your incisions heal properly. Most women find that their healing takes around six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients can return to a somewhat normal routine within a couple of weeks. To ensure you heal properly, patients should avoid working out for approximately two months. Once you have fully healed, the mommy makeover is a life-changing experience. It can help women love the way they look and feel again.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Chiddy, he will listen to your concerns and goals before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can make recommendations on what should be a part of your treatment plan. Most women include a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) along with liposuction and a body lift.

What about nonsurgical treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy can take a toll on your body, so nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to produce the results you want. In your consultation, Dr. Chidester will discuss both surgical and nonsurgical treatments. Based on your needs and goals, he will let you know if procedures like nonsurgical liposuction, vaginal rejuvenation, or nonsurgical skin tightening may be helpful.

Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover offers a rejuvenated shape, it can leave some scarring. Dr. Chiddy will make every effort possible to create clean, small incisions. Most scars that result from this surgery will be able to be hidden with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your recovery care instructions, Dr. Chidester or a member of his team will go over scar care so your sutures heal properly.

How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs will vary depending on what you are including in your surgery. In your consultation, Dr. Chiddy will create your treatment plan and provide a cost quote. A mommy makeover is an investment in reclaiming your confidence after pregnancy and childbirth, so it is important to focus on getting amazing results instead of the lowest cost. Our practice accepts several payment methods and can give you information on finding low-interest medical financing to make your mommy makeover affordable.

How long do the results of a mommy makeover last?
Results can be long-lasting, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle. Significant weight fluctuations or future pregnancies can affect the longevity of the results.

What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should wait to have a mommy makeover until your family is complete so the surgical results are not compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. Should you get pregnant after your mommy makeover, a second surgery may be performed to refresh your results.
