Regain your confidence after pregnancy with a Mommy Makeover. Our office provides Mommy Makeover and other cosmetic and reconstructive procedures for residents of the metro Atlanta area and surrounding communities in Georgia.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures that help a woman regain her figure after pregnancy and lactation.
What does a Mommy Makeover achieve?
At our office each Mommy Makeover is personally tailored to every individual patient and is performed to rejuvenate and tighten the body after pregnancy and lactation. Pregnancy often leaves a woman with a thicker waistline, stretch marks, weakened abdominal muscles, sagging breasts, and excess loose sagging skin in the abdominal region. A Mommy Makeover combines various procedures to address all of these concerns at once, restoring a firm, flat abdomen, a more defined waistline, and tighter body contour in the torso. A Mommy Makeover may combine any of the following procedures:
- Breast Enhancement
If pregnancy and lactation have left your breasts sagging with loss of volume, a breast enhancement procedure, such as breast augmentation and/or a breast lift, can restore youthful fullness and firmness to your breasts.
- Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck procedure tightens lax abdominal muscles, trims the waistline, and eliminates stretch marks as well as sagging skin from the belly.
Liposuction is often used during a Mommy Makeover to extract any fatty bulges and lumps from areas not treated by the tummy tuck or breast enhancement, such as the back or thighs.
Who should consider a Mommy Makeover?
Even if you’re not a mom, you may be a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover! Any adult woman who is currently in good health, not pregnant or lactating, nor planning to become pregnant in the future, may benefit from a Mommy Makeover to rejuvenate her entire body. If you are planning to become pregnant in the future, we recommend holding off on this procedure until after you finish going through pregnancy and lactation, as future pregnancy may alter your results.
How quickly will I heal after a Mommy Makeover?
By choosing a Mommy Makeover, you will experience a quicker recovery period than if you had all of these procedures separately. Immediately after surgery, you will need to rest fully for several days. Soreness and swelling are normal, although these symptoms will naturally subside in a few days. During recovery, you will have to wear compressive support garments to support your new shape, protect delicate tissue, and reduce inflammation and discomfort. These garments also optimize the healing process by helping muscles adapt to your new shape. Most patients are able to resume normal non-strenuous activities within one to two weeks after a Mommy Makeover. Dr. Bootstaylor will provide detailed post-operative instructions that you must observe to optimize your healing. You will be advised to refrain from strenuous exercise and physical activities, such as sex, for a period of four to six weeks, depending on your procedure. Our dedicated team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and support you throughout the recovery period.
Dr. Bootstaylor performs surgical procedures at Emory University Hospital Midtown and Northside Hospital.
