After pregnancy and childbirth, a woman’s body undergoes many changes. While maintaining a good diet and exercise routine can help, often it’s difficult or impossible to regain your pre-childbirth body. A mommy makeover can help you to feel confident in your appearance once more.
If you are interested in a mommy makeover, don’t hesitate to contact Renaissance Plastic Surgery at (636) 896-0600 to schedule your consultation with one of our experienced plastic surgeons.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to help you regain a shapely, proportionate body. While a mommy makeover is usually performed on women who have had children, it can be done on anyone who needs a combination of breast and body procedures.
Common mommy makeover procedures include:
Your surgeon will discuss your goals with you during your consultation in order to determine the best combination of procedures for you. Each mommy makeover case is different, and we want to make sure you get the results you want.
Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
Typically, candidates for a mommy makeover have some combination of the following:
- Breasts that have lost volume
- Breasts that have started to sag or deflate
- Abdominal muscles that have loosened and separated
- Sagging skin in the abdominal area
In addition, the ideal mommy makeover candidate:
- Is finished having children
- Is at least six months out from having her child
- Has lost most of her baby weight
- Is in good general health
- Has realistic expectations
While having a mommy makeover will not prevent you from having more children, we recommend waiting until you are done building your family. This is not for health concerns, but for cosmetic ones. Another pregnancy and childbirth will likely ruin your results and require a second mommy makeover to get them back.
You should also wait for at least six months (preferably a full year) after having a child to undergo cosmetic surgery. Your body needs time to get its hormones back under control, and your results will be better if you wait until you’ve lost most of your baby weight.
Cost of a Mommy Makeover
The cost of a mommy makeover will depend on how many procedures you want and how complex they are. Each patient is different, so it is impossible to predict how much your mommy makeover will cost without seeing you in person for a consultation.
During your consultation, your surgeon will examine you and discuss your goals in detail to find the best mommy makeover plan for you. He will then be able to give you an exact quote. Insurance typically does not cover cosmetic surgery, but we offer cosmetic surgery financing plans if you are concerned about paying upfront.
Please feel free to ask us about financing your mommy makeover. Benefits include:
- Flexible repayment schedules based on your income and budget
- 0% or low APR
- No need to wait to save up for the procedures you want
We’ll be happy to walk you through your options during your consultation. You can also call us at any time if you have questions about our financing services.
