What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover is a combination of plastic surgery and/or non-surgical cosmetic enhancement treatments designed to address the physical changes that occur during pregnancy and the raising of children. The procedure is custom-designed based on your needs and goals. Some of the treatments commonly performed as part of a Mommy Makeover include tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, breast enhancement, and facial rejuvenation.
You can find a more detailed overview of Mommy Makeover procedures in our previous blog entry or on our Mommy Makeover page.
When is the right time for a Mommy Makeover?
It is often recommended that new mothers wait at least a year after having their last child before undergoing a Mommy Makeover procedure; however, Dr. Newman advises some patients to wait even longer periods of time. Its important to remember that many Mommy Makeover procedures involve recovery periods that will make it difficult to care for small children in the weeks following surgery.

Can I still have children after a Mommy Makeover?
If you are planning on having more children, it is best to wait until you have had your last child before undergoing a Mommy Makeover; however, its important to note that every patient is different, and what is not advisable for some individuals may be okay for others. During your initial consultation, Dr. Newman will evaluate your needs and talk with you about the potential effects future pregnancies may have on your Mommy Makeover results.
How many treatments should I have as part of my Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover can include as little as two treatments or as many five, depending on your goals. The procedure is custom-designed to meet your specific needs.
How is the procedure performed?
Mommy Makeover procedures can be staged over a series of appointments or performed as a single procedure that addresses all of your concerns at once. The best option will be determined by factors such as your medical history, the chosen treatments, surgical risks, and your unique needs. Safety is our number one concern. Our goals are to minimize risks and create beautiful, natural-looking results that meet your expectations.
What can I expect during recovery?
The answer to this question is dependent upon the treatments you undergo and whether your Mommy Makeover is performed in a single operation or over multiple appointments. Major surgical procedures such as tummy tuck, breast lift, and breast augmentation will require some downtime, while treatments such as laser stretch mark removal or injectable facial rejuvenation will likely result in minimal downtime or no downtime at all. Your overall physical health will also be a factor in the length of your recovery. Dr. Newman will be able to give you a more concrete idea of the recovery process once your treatment plan has been created.
