What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Dr. Walt Sweeney regularly meets with women who want their pre-pregnancy body back. While childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment in a woman’s life, it often will change the look, shape, and size of certain body parts and could leave one feeling a little frustrated. The most exciting news is that it’s achievable to once again attain a slimmer, smooth physique with the assistance of the mommy makeover surgery. This surgery uses a combination of fat removal and skin tightening to reshape the stomach and breasts, as well as other areas affected by pregnancy. Practically any body part affected by weight gain or breast feeding can be addressed. Furthermore, non-surgical treatments can be incorporated to enhance surface imperfections, such as hyperpigmentation and discoloration, from the rapid stretching and fluctuation of the skin during pregnancy.
The mommy makeover procedure is a unique surgery, tailored for women by plastic surgeon Dr. Sweeney based on the areas of concern to be corrected. A variety of procedures can be considered together. The most popular treatments are a breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, duration of the procedure depends on the complexity. It is common to also incorporate non-surgical methods, such as an injection or a laser treatment, to smooth facial wrinkles and diminish surface imperfections.

Once you’ve left the facility, you will begin your recovery at home with rest. The recovery process is variable and depends on the extent of your procedure. Walking will be difficult the first few days, and a thorough, at-home care protocol will be required to make sure the incisions heal properly. Even while the complete healing will take some time, the majority of women are able to resume a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Exercise should be held off for about two months. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at our practice can be life changing for women, allowing them to love the way they look and feel once again.
