Mommy Makeover in Tucson, AZ

Pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and motherhood take a toll on a woman’s body. All too often, women struggle to regain their pre-pregnancy figure following the birth of a child.

Dr. Jeffrey Nelson’s Tucson, Arizona cosmetic surgery practice provides Mommy Makeovers for women who want to restore their figure after childbirth.

As a new mother, you don’t always have the time to focus on yourself. You may try dieting and exercise but find it does little to reverse the effects of weight gained during pregnancy and even less when it comes to the shape of your breasts after nursing.

Many moms struggle to gain confidence in their bodies following pregnancy, and while your priorities have shifted, you still deserve to address any cosmetic concerns that arise after childbirth.

Are You a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

Living your best life doesn’t have to include sagging breasts or stubborn fat. You have options, and a Mommy Makeover is a great way to restore your pre-pregnancy aesthetic.

The Mommy Makeover is perfectly designed to custom-treat the common problem areas women face following pregnancy.

What Are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

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

What Are Your Mommy Makeover Options?

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 treats localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise

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

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

  • Purified extracted fat can be injected in a Brazilian Butt Lift

  • Fine incisions are used to prevent visible scars from developing

Can You Customize Your Mommy Makeover?

The beautiful part of a Mommy Makeover is that you can choose the procedures and treatments that are right for you.

Not only can you enhance your breast and flatten your belly, but you can also add other surgical or non-surgical treatments to improve areas of concern that bothered you even before you were pregnant.

How Long Does It Take to Recover From a Mommy Makeover?

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, and it is recommended to have some help with the baby during this time.

Most women can return to their routine activities, including 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 will be visible once all major swelling has subsided, usually around week six of recovery.

How Long Will My Mommy Makeover Results Last?

Women who take good care of their bodies can achieve results that last for years with some treatments and forever with others. Of course, the longevity of results will be impacted by lifestyle choices, so it is essential to prioritize one’s health by maintaining a proper diet and exercise regimen. 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.

Choosing Your Doctor

A Mommy Makeover combines two or more cosmetic procedures. It takes a qualified plastic surgeon who listens carefully to your concerns, creates an appropriate treatment plan, and pays meticulous attention to detail to achieve outstanding results.

Dr. Nelson is a compassionate and dedicated board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience performing a wide variety of procedures and understands the range of concerns his patients, who are mothers, have.

His number one goal is to provide each patient with the most relaxing and enjoyable experience from start to finish. From your personal and confidential consultation to results that meet or exceed your desired expectations, you can be sure that your Mommy Makeover is designed to meet your unique needs.

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 effort 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.
A Mommy Makeover is defined as receiving two or more procedures of your choice, and most patients don’t undergo every treatment available.

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 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 your trouble spots lie, a Mommy Makeover can be designed to target all of them.
While many women who undergo this procedure do so after having one, two, or three (or more) children, motherhood is not a prerequisite. This name is a catch-all term for a combination breast and body procedure and can be performed on any qualifying candidate. Many women choose to undergo this combination after significant weight loss.
Your Mommy Makeover will not affect your pregnancy in any way; however, your pregnancy may affect the quality of your results. This is why it is often recommended to postpone your surgery until you are finished having children. That being said, if you get pregnant after having a Mommy Makeover, you will still likely be able to enjoy many of your results and touch-up procedures are available.
