What Is the Mommy Makeover?

This term describes a variety of surgical procedures and minimally invasive treatments that are used to address concerns women may have with their bodies after they are done having children. By combining several methods, your plastic surgeon can help you feel restored post-pregnancy. While there are many potential treatments, the ones described here address the most common problem areas women face after childbirth.


Women’s Health Treatments

Whether due to aging or post-pregnancy, there are ways to improve vaginal, labial and urinary issues that women face. Non-invasive treatments including Plus90 and Morpheus8 can stimulate collagen production and improve blood flow to the vaginal wall and labia, improving urinary incontinence or symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) such as vaginal dryness. There are also non-invasive methods to help strengthen your core while improving the appearance of your skin at the same time. The muscle tightening, skin tightening and fat reduction capabilities of the non-invasive EvolveX technology can strengthen your core, improve post-partum abdominal laxity and contour your body all at once!


The Tummy Tuck

Excess skin and fat in the abdominal area is one of the most common cosmetic issues after pregnancy. During abdominoplasty, your surgeon removes any extra tissue and re-shapes your muscles to create the desired look. Rectus plication, or repair of the position of the stomach muscles, is often a part of abdominoplasty after having children. This part of the procedure gets rid of central bulging from your abdomen, enhancing your contour and helping you feel your best. At The MedSpa at Burlington Plastic Surgery, we perform drainless tummy tuck, which helps increase comfort during your recovery period. Tummy tuck can often be performed together with a breast procedure to look and feel your best.

Breast Lift

Many women experience sagging of their breasts as they age or after post-partum changes. A breast lift can re-position and re-shape the breasts and nipples to bring that perk back to your chest. Depending on the size and shape of your breasts, there are several incision patterns that can be used to achieve the desired lift.  

Breast Augmentation

When expecting a baby, many women’s breasts become larger. But once your child is done breastfeeding, your breasts can begin to sag and lose volume. If you miss their plump appearance, you could have them surgically augmented, lifted or a combination of both. With the help of your surgeon, you can achieve your desired breast shape and size.


How It Works

When you reach out to us, we will book you in for an initial consultation. At that time, you can tell us which areas of the body you’re worried about, and we can explain your options. Some women opt for just one type of intervention while others choose three or more to fully rejuvenate their bodies. Your doctor can help you choose the treatments that are most suitable and come up with a unique treatment plan.


Who Is This Right for?

Many of the methods we offer are surgical procedures, so they are not suitable for everyone. If you have a severe medical condition or your body has trouble healing from an injury, you might need to opt for our less invasive treatments.

Similarly, women who aren’t sure if they are done having children should wait before participating in a makeover. Becoming pregnant again after surgery can affect the results, which means the patient may have to come back for another session. Certain breast procedures can also potentially affect the ability to breastfeed post-surgery. Thus, it’s better to begin treatment once you’re sure you don’t want another baby.
