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.
"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020

"I had an incredible experience with Dr. Eagan at New Orleans Plastic Surgery. Dr. Eagan is very talented and knowledgeable. After two pregnancies that left me with irreversible damage to my stomach, I had a tummy tuck with abdominal muscle repair. My results exceeded my expectations. Dr. Eagan patiently addressed all of my questions. She gave me options for my specific situation and was not pushy about adding any additional unnecessary procedures. I was given all of the information I needed prior to surgery and for after-care. She was readily available in the days following the surgery for any concerns and gave me the right combination of medication to keep me out of pain. I followed all of her directions and feel like I had a quick and successful recovery. I couldn’t be happier with my incision. It is really straight, thin, symmetrical, no dog ears, and well placed. Having my muscle separation repaired restored my ability to properly workout, dance, and do all of the things I was lacking the confidence to do. I’m so happy to have my life and body back.LikeShare"- V.R. / Yelp / May 01, 2023

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.
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover depends on what treatments we include in your surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will design your treatment plan and discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is an investment in rejuvenating your body after pregnancy and childbirth so patients should focus on getting the results they want rather than shopping for the lowest cost. New Orleans Plastic Surgery accepts many payment options, and we can help you find low-interest financing to make your mommy makeover affordable.

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?

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.
