Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy and motherhood can take a toll on a woman’s body. Too often, women struggle to regain their physique following the birth of a child.

Either time constraints don’t allow you to focus 100 percent on yourself, or, more often, diet and exercise do little to reverse the effects of pregnancy. Many moms struggle to gain confidence and comfort in their bodies following childbirth. Dr. Nelson understands the varying needs and wants of all his new and experienced moms. The Mommy Makeover is perfectly designed to custom-treat the common problem areas women face following pregnancy.

A Mommy Makeover May Be Right for You if…

  • You suffer from abdominal laxity

  • You have sagging abdominal tissue

  • You have stubborn fat deposits

  • Your breasts have lost volume

  • Your breasts have begun to sag

  • Diet and exercise have failed to achieve your desired results

Mommy Makeover Procedures

Breast Enhancement

  • Breast enhancement procedures include breast augmentation and breast lift

  • Breast augmentation uses implants to increase volume and improve shape

  • A breast lift removes excess skin and provides support to weakened breast tissue to restore firmness to sagging breasts

  • Breast augmentation and breast lift surgery can be combined to correct a lack of breast volume and sagging breasts

Tummy Tuck

  • Tummy tuck surgery targets weak abdominal muscles and excess abdominal skin that occurs following pregnancy

  • An incision is placed low along the bikini line to conceal potential scarring

  • The abdominal muscles can be tightened to strengthen and improve your core

  • Excess abdominal skin is trimmed away to reveal a more toned tummy

Liposculpture

  • Liposculpture treats localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise

  • Can treat fat around the abdomen, hips, thighs, breasts, and buttocks

  • Liposculpture is designed to not only remove fat but also sculpt new curves and enhance your body’s shape

  • Fine incisions are used to prevent visible scars from developing

Choosing Your Doctor

His number one goal is to provide each patient with the most relaxing and enjoyable experience from start to finish. From your personal, confidential consultation to patient-tailored results, you can be sure that your Mommy Makeover is designed to best suit you.

Frequently Asked Questions

It is always advised that patients lose weight and tone their bodies as much as possible through diet and exercise before their Mommy Makeover. This enhances the quality of the results and provides a leaner appearance. Typically, women should wait six months to a year following their pregnancy before undergoing a Mommy Makeover.
Every Mommy Makeover is designed to treat the needs of the individual. You and Dr. Nelson will decide which procedures are needed to help you achieve the results you desire.
The length of your recovery will depend on the extent of correction required to achieve your desired results. On average, patients will rest for one week. Most women can return to work within two weeks of their procedure. You should be able to resume your regular exercise routine, with Dr. Nelson’s permission, after four weeks. Your final results should be visible once all major swelling has subsided, usually around week six of recovery.
The good thing about a Mommy Makeover is that you aren’t confined to just the procedures outlined here. Many women suffer from skin laxity in the arms following pregnancy and desire an arm contouring procedure. Other women may desire vaginal rejuvenation procedures to improve their sexual desire and intimacy. Wherever you trouble spots lie, a Mommy Makeover can be designed to target all of them.
Women who properly maintain their bodies are able to achieve results that can last for decades. It is important to live a healthy lifestyle that includes diet and exercise. Additional weight gain can affect the appearance and quality of your results. Women should also keep in mind that a subsequent pregnancy will affect their Mommy Makeover results.
