What is a Mommy Makeover?

At New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana, Dr. Michelle Eagan regularly helps women who want their pre-pregnancy body back. Even though childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment in a woman’s life, it can change the size and shape of certain body parts. Unfortunately, this could make you feel frustrated. If you want to reclaim a tighter, slimmer figure, the 3D or 360 mommy makeover can help you achieve your goals. This surgery uses a combination of fat removal and skin tightening techniques to reshape the stomach, breasts, or any parts of the body affected by pregnancy. We can address any issues caused by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding. In addition, Dr. Eagan can incorporate nonsurgical procedures, which treat stretch marks or hyperpigmentation. Please call our office located near Metairie, LA to learn more about the mommy makeover and how it can help you.

should i get a mommy makeover?

Even with a healthy lifestyle, many women find it difficult to achieve their pre-pregnancy bodies. If you have difficulty, the mommy makeover could help you reach your desired cosmetic goals. For many women, surgery is necessary to attain their pre-pregnancy shape. If you no longer plan on having children and you feel unhappy with the effects, such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or stubborn pockets of fat on the hips, thighs, and buttocks, the mommy makeover could be perfect for you. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery, Dr. Eagan strives to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy shape so you can feel and look your best.

how is a mommy makeover performed?

A mommy makeover is a body contouring treatment that we tailor for each woman. Based on your cosmetic concerns, Dr. Eagan can help select the best treatments for you. She can combine a variety of procedures, including breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction. The amount of time is based on the number of procedures we perform, and it can range from 3 – 7 hours. At the beginning of your procedure, we will administer general anesthesia to help keep you comfortable. Sometimes, if needed, you may require an overnight stay at the hospital for monitoring. For additional enhancement, Dr. Eagan can perform nonsurgical treatments, such as laser treatments and injectables.

how long is recovery from a mommy makeover?

Before you leave to recover at home, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions. Generally, your recovery process is slow because each treatment requires a certain amount of healing time. At first, moving around and walking is difficult during the first week. Additionally, you should carefully follow our aftercare instructions to ensure your incisions heal properly. Most patients find the healing phase can last around six months. Even though recovery could take months, many women can resume a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. However, you should avoid exercise for two months. After completely healing, the mommy makeover helps women regain their self-confidence.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs can vary greatly depending on what you are including in your surgery. In your consultation, Dr. Eagan will develop your treatment plan and then she can estimate your costs. A mommy makeover is about rejuvenating your confidence after pregnancy and childbirth, so it's important to concentrate on getting the results you want rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. New Orleans Plastic Surgery takes several payment methods and we can help you find low-interest medical financing so your mommy makeover is easy to afford.

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Eagan, she will listen to your needs and concerns before performing a physical examination. After this, she can give you recommendations on what to include in your mommy makeover. Often, women select a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) along with a tummy tuck and liposuction.

What about nonsurgical treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body, which is why nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to get noticeable improvements. In your consultation, Dr. Eagan can explain both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. After listening to your needs and goals, she will let you know if treatments like nonsurgical liposuction (for example, CoolSculpting), laser vaginal rejuvenation (for example, ThermiVa), or nonsurgical skin tightening (for example, Thermage or ultherapy) may be helpful.

Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a rejuvenated shape, it does include surgical scars. Dr. Eagan will make every effort possible to create small, clean incisions. Most scars will be placed so they can be hidden with undergarments or swimsuits. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Eagan or a member of Her team will give you tips on scar care so your incisions heal and fade.

What if I get pregnant again?
In a perfect world, you should wait to have a mommy makeover until your family is complete so the surgical results aren't compromised. In most cases, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. If you have another child after your mommy makeover, another surgery may be done to refresh your results.

Is a mommy makeover painful?

No. During the procedure, patients will be under an anesthetic to prevent any and all pain. There will be a recovery period where there may be some slight discomfort, though depending on your treatment, this is easily manageable and usually only lasts for a short time.
