What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancy and childbirth take a heavy toll on the body. Despite their best efforts with diet and exercise, many women find it difficult to regain their pre-pregnancy shape. In addition to causing stretch marks, pregnancy may cause the abdominal muscles to become lax, while breastfeeding may cause the breasts to deflate or sag. Most women also find it hard to shed the weight gained during pregnancy after the birth of their little one. A mommy makeover is a term coined to describe the various cosmetic procedures specifically designed to help mothers’ look and feel their best.
No two mommy makeovers are alike. Yours will be unique to your needs and desires. The goal of a mommy makeover is to counteract the physical effects of childbearing and enhance your appearance, making you look and feel younger.
Procedures can be performed individually, or you may opt for a combination of these procedures to get back to your pre-maternity appearance.
Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
Many mothers feel like their bodies are “out of whack” after having kids. They feel frumpy and their skin feels floppy and droops. A mommy makeover can correct these issues and give you the following benefits:
- Improved self-esteem and self-confidence.
- The freedom to look and feel your best.
- A lovelier, shapelier physique.
Preparing for a Mommy Makeover
You may be asked to undergo lab testing or a medical evaluation to rule out any external issues that may interfere with your surgery. You may also be asked to start, discontinue, or adjust your current medication schedule. You’ll recover more quickly if you stop smoking, and you should avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines, or any herbal supplements as these can increase bleeding.
How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
Mommy makeovers are highly personalized procedures since the body issues experienced by mothers as a consequence of childbirth differ from one individual to the next. As such, when you visit Dr. Aycock for a one-on-one consultation, he will evaluate you to determine the scope of your problem areas, which will enable him to develop a treatment plan for you.

After your surgery, small tubes may be placed under your skin to aid with the drainage of excess fluid. You may also be required to wear an elastic compression garment to help your skin adjust to your new figure. It may take several months for the swelling to go down, during which your beautiful new figure will emerge!
