Mommy Makeover

While every pregnancy is unique, all affect a woman’s breasts and midsection. If your body hasn’t bounced back after having one or more babies, you’re not alone. As a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 30 years of experience, Dr. George Pope has helped hundreds of women feel happy and confident about their shape again with mommy makeover surgery at Pope Plastic Surgery. He combines plastic surgery procedures, usually a tummy tuck and a breast procedure, into a single surgery to maximize benefits and minimize downtime.

What does a mommy makeover do?

A mommy makeover can be whatever you want it to be. Most women choose procedures to address the effects pregnancy and breastfeeding have had on their bodies. Common concerns include:

  • Belly bulges and rolls
  • Deflated breasts
  • Excess skin and stretch marks
  • Pockets of stubborn fat

Sometimes moms are interested in facial rejuvenation to reduce under-eye bags, heavy eyelids, and wrinkles.

Which procedures can I have?

During a private consultation with Dr. Pope, he will ask you about the changes you’d like to make, and you will have time to ask questions in a relaxed and unhurried discussion. Dr. Pope will perform a physical exam and recommend the procedures best suited to your cosmetic goals. Most mommy makeover patients choose a combination of the following:

  • Tummy tuck to tighten stretched abdominal skin and muscles.
  • Breast augmentation, breast lift, or both procedures combined, to restore or enhance breast shape and size.
  • Breast reduction to reduce physical and emotional discomfort.
  • Liposuction to reshape the hips, thighs, upper back, and other areas where persistent “baby fat” has built up.

Dr. Pope can also include surgical or nonsurgical procedures for the face, such as eyelid surgery or BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to freshen up your look.

What is mommy makeover recovery like?

Recovery after a mommy makeover is usually not longer or more difficult than it would be for a single procedure on its own, although experiences vary between patients and with the combination of procedures performed. Dr. Pope administers a long-lasting pain control medicine called Exparel® during the surgery to minimize initial discomfort. If you have a baby or toddler, you will need to have help with childcare from a responsible adult until Dr. Pope says you’re ready to take over.

Expect to return to normal daily activities including work within about 2 weeks and full activity within 6 weeks. This timeline varies with individual factors and the procedures performed.

How long will it take to see my final mommy makeover results?

Within a month or 2, swelling usually has subsided, and patients can truly appreciate the improvements they have gained in multiple areas. Review the individual procedure pages to get a better idea of the expected timeline.
