Tummy Pooch


Many mothers and individuals who have lost a lot of weight have a tummy pooch marked by sagging skin, excess fat, stretch marks, and separated abdominal muscles.

  • Gets rid of sagging skin and fat
  • Improves core strength
  • Restores self-confidence
  • Improves self-image

Sagging breasts are a common side effect of pregnancy, breastfeeding, major weight loss, and aging. A breast lift can be included in your Mommy Makeover to enhance your breast shape and reposition your sagging breasts to a more flattering and youthful height.

  • Restores youthful perkiness to the breasts
  • Corrects breast shape and nipple position
  • Restores self-confidence
  • Improves self-image

A woman’s breasts can lose volume due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight loss. Deflated, flabby breasts can be made firm, full, and round with breast implants. Breast augmentation is a commonly performed part of a Mommy Makeover.

Benefits
  • Reverses breast volume loss for a more youthful appearance
  • Improves breast fullness and firmness
  • Restores self-confidence
  • Improves self-image

  • Targets specific areas of unwanted fat
  • Restores self-confidence

  • Smooths lines and wrinkles in the upper face
  • Restores a more youthful appearance
  • Restores self-confidence
  • Improves self-image

Mommy Makeover Procedure Options

The Mommy Makeover includes a combination of surgeries/treatments and is entirely customizable. While an individual can include almost any procedures in the Mommy Makeover, the following are the most commonly selected Mommy Makeover procedures:

A tummy tuck can correct unattractive changes to the abdomen caused by pregnancy, aging, heredity, or weight fluctuations. This surgery tightens and firms the abdomen to restore its definition and contour.


Traditional Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
  • Removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen
  • Tightens weakened or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)
  • Particularly beneficial after multiple pregnancies

Mini Tummy Tuck (Partial Abdominoplasty)
  • Removes excess fat and skin from the lower abdomen only
  • Tightens weakened or separated abdominal muscle below the navel
  • Appropriate for patients whose condition is not severe enough for traditional tummy tuck surgery but is more extensive than can be treated with liposuction alone

Changes from pregnancy, aging, and weight fluctuations can cause the breasts to sag and lose their shape. A breast lift can restore the breasts to a more youthful shape and position.


  • Improves breast shape and contour
  • Corrects breast sagging
  • Restores a more youthful and perky breast appearance
Read More

Breast augmentation inserts implants under the breasts to increase breast fullness and projection. This surgery can help women with deflated breasts after weight loss or pregnancy to achieve a more balanced and feminine figure.


  • Permanently boosts breast size with implants
  • Enhances breast shape for a rounder, more feminine look
  • Restores youthful volume and firmness
  • Implants come in a wide variety of sizes, profiles, textures, etc. for patient customization

Pregnancy, nursing, and weight fluctuations often leave pockets of stubborn fat in areas such as the hips, buttocks, waist, and thighs. Liposuction removes fat from trouble areas to create more youthful and slender body contours.


  • Directly targets stubborn fat in troublesome areas
  • Can be performed anywhere on the body
  • Permanently removes unwanted fat
  • Improves body contours

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical, physician-administered injectable treatment that can temporarily smooth wrinkles in the upper face. This treatment can correct wrinkles in the forehead, frown lines between the brows, and fine lines around the eyes.


  • Corrects moderate to severe wrinkles in the upper face
  • Non-surgical treatment with no recovery or downtime
  • Offers temporary results that can be maintained with regular treatments
  • Restores a softer and more youthful-looking face

Concerns

Your Mommy Makeover recovery may be longer than it would have been for a single procedure, but it will be far shorter than undergoing multiple separate operations each with their own recovery. Because the Mommy Makeover is customized for every patient, the recovery experience can vary greatly. You should carefully follow all postoperative instructions given by Dr. Stevens to ensure a smooth recovery. Prescribed medications should be taken to limit the risk of infection and reduce any discomfort. Drains and compression garments may be needed depending on the procedures included in your Mommy Makeover. Swelling and bruising in the areas operated on may last a few weeks. Patients should rest at home for at least several days and limit their activities for several weeks. Strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided for a full six weeks. Dr. Stevens will inform patients when it is appropriate for them to return to work (typically two to three weeks after the surgery).
Patients should expect some degree of scarring after the Mommy Makeover. The extent of scarring will depend on the surgical incisions and your body’s capacity for healing. Women who undergo breast surgery will likely have scars either under the breast fold or around the areolas. Those who undergo a tummy tuck will likely have scarring in the lower abdomen, approximately where a c-section incision is placed. Liposuction typically leaves only small, inconspicuous incisions or no scars at all, and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections do not leave any scarring. Patients who carefully comply with all postoperative instructions may have less visible scars as a result. All scars should fade over time and can be minimized by avoiding trauma to the incision sites during recovery, using silicone scar sheets, and limiting sun exposure.
Anesthesia is used to prevent pain during the surgery. Discomfort during recovery can be alleviated by taking prescribed pain medications. During an abdominoplasty, Dr. Stevens also inserts a pain pump catheter to deliver anesthetic directly to the repaired muscles if needed. Any pain is temporary and is a natural part of the body’s healing process.
The cost of a Mommy Makeover varies significantly from patient to patient because it can include any number of different procedures. Other factors that influence the cost include the physician’s fees, cost of anesthesia, surgical fees, and facility fees.

Frequently Asked Questions

The procedures listed above are the ones that are most often included in the Mommy Makeover. If you do not need all of these procedures, you can select the ones that best fit your needs. Some individuals may need other procedures not listed here, such as a facelift, arm lift, or others. Every patient’s needs are unique, which is why Dr. Stevens discusses your needs with you in detail during your consultation. At that time, the two of you will determine which procedures you should include with your Mommy Makeover.
The best time to get a Mommy Makeover is when you are finished having children, it is at least six months after you have delivered your last child or stopped nursing, and you are financially and physically prepared to undergo major surgery. Patients who are physically fit and near their goal body weight usually have the best results from Mommy Makeover surgery.
Ideal candidates for a Mommy Makeover are typically mothers or individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight. Most patients have pockets of stubborn fat combined with sagging abdominal skin, weakened stomach muscles, and deflated, sagging breasts. Candidates should be non-smokers or be willing to quit for at least two weeks before and after their procedure. The best candidates have a healthy lifestyle and are within 10 to 15 pounds of their goal weight.
Despite its name, the Mommy Makeover is not just for mothers. This procedure can be performed on any woman or even any man who desires correction of multiple body issues at once.
There are multiple benefits to combining your procedures into one as a Mommy Makeover:
  • Overall less expensive than multiple surgeries
  • Far easier recovery overall than multiple surgical procedures
  • Shorter surgical timeline altogether
  • Less time off work overall
  • Your full results come sooner
The results of your Mommy Makeover are designed to be long lasting. However, their longevity largely depends on choices that you make. Women who become pregnant or gain a lot of weight after their Mommy Makeover will likely compromise their results. The natural aging process can also affect how long results last. You will be able to maintain your results the best with a healthy lifestyle and avoiding future pregnancies.
