Let’s start with the basics

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a combination of surgical procedures to help women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies or even improve on their original body type to achieve the appearance they’ve always desired. While this procedure can be a mixture of multiple surgeries, there are three primary areas that most moms focus on to achieve tighter bodies: breasts, stomach, and stubborn fat. Some of the more common procedures that are performed in a Mommy Makeover include:

Breast Augmentation: Some women have never been satisfied with the size or shape of their breasts but use a Mommy Makeover to finally achieve a larger and more shapely bust.

Breast Lift: A breast lift can do some miraculous changes to your breast’s shape and appearance. While it won’t be as extreme of a result as breast augmentation, a lift can give your chest a more youthful and perky appearance.

Liposuction: 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.

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.

We will work with you from beginning to end to make sure that you are happy with your results and are doing everything possible to maximize the surgical benefits.

What to Expect on the Day of A Mommy Makeover

Depending on what was discussed during your consultation with Dr. Samson, your procedure will begin by anesthesia being administered; this will either be intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Once you are properly sedated, your surgery will begin.

During your consultation, Dr. Samson will discuss what you should expect on the day of your Mommy Makeover surgery, but for a better understanding of what your surgery will entail, please read the “What to Expect” sections for the following procedures:

What’s the First Step?

Mommy Makeover Recovery

After your surgery, your incisions will be covered with a gauze or bandage to prevent infection. Immediately following surgery, you will be monitored by the nursing team while the anesthesia wears off. Once Dr. Samson releases you, you will be able to return home and recover in peace, but you will need a family member or friend available to give you a ride and stay with you for at least the first few hours of recovery. It’s always best to have an adult caretaker available to help you for the first few days of recovery because you will be sore and unable to lift anything heavy. Your recovery time and experience will vary depending on which surgeries you had, If you have any hesitations about your recovery time, please discuss them with Dr. Samson and consider getting your Mommy Makeover at a time when you will need to be less hands-on with your child.

For additional information on your recovery, please look at the aforementioned procedure pages on our website for a better understanding of what to expect.

Mommy Makeover FAQ’s

Is a Mommy Makeover Painful?

No. Dr. Samson performs your surgery with the aid of anesthesia, so your Mommy Makeover will not be painful. You may experience some mild pain or discomfort during your initial recovery, however, this is typically treatable with an ice pack. Dr. Samson does prescribe some temporary pain medication to alleviate your pain during the initial stages of your recovery.

How many appointments will I need?

Most of the procedures that Dr. Samson performs can be performed in a single surgical visit, some patients may require multiple surgeries to achieve their desired look. You can also expect to return about a week post-op so that Dr. Samson can monitor your healing progress and remove any bandages or sutures. Depending on how Dr. Samson observes your recovery, you will need to return intermittently over the next few months to a year. You will always be informed when you should return and when your last follow-up will be.

How long until I see results?

Every patient’s experience will be different, but you should be able to notice some instant changes following your surgeries, although you will be swollen and potentially bruised. There will be a period of recovery which is completely natural with any cosmetic procedure, but most patients begin to notice their results after about three months, with the best results showing after around a full year.

Can I combine my Mommy Makeover with other procedures?

Since a Mommy Makeover is already a combination of procedures, you may do the variation that suits you best. However, if you have any particular aesthetic desires, please mention them to Dr. Samson during your consultation. He will be more than happy to offer his expert suggestions to help you achieve your desired results.
