About Mommy Makeovers

Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sholomo Widder, offers mommy makeover surgery at Widder Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center in Vienna, VA, to improve the contour of a woman’s body after childbearing. Typically, women who undergo this procedure are past childbearing and breastfeeding, as pregnancy may alter the results. A mommy makeover combines several surgeries at different times, such as a breast lift and tummy tuck. Other surgeries may be combined or recommended to further restore your body to a pre-pregnancy state. Every unique treatment plan produces stunning results and contours the body to a tighter, firmer figure.

Best Candidates

The best candidates for a mommy makeover are women in good health who need assistance restoring their body after pregnancy and childbirth. A mommy makeover is best for women who have used a healthy diet and exercise to naturally restore their body, but there are still stubborn pockets of fat, loose skin, or other concerns that cannot be altered naturally. It is recommended that candidates seeking a mommy makeover not be planning any more pregnancies, as additional pregnancies will alter the work of this procedure. If you do get pregnant after your mommy makeover, a few touch up surgeries are usually needed to restore your results.

What to Expect

Prior to the procedure, you will meet with your surgeon to discuss which procedures will be part of their mommy makeover treatment plan. Since a mommy makeover incorporates a number of different procedures, each patient’s surgical experience will be different. Most mommy makeover surgeries will be performed in an accredited surgical facility or hospital with the patient under general anesthesia. The length of the surgery varies based on the number and types of procedures performed at one time. Because of the invasiveness of certain procedures, some patients will be required to stay overnight following surgery. Recovery time for this procedure is extensive and can take several months for full recovery. However, most patients can go back to their normal routines after roughly the first month. Exercise should be avoided for 2 months post-surgery or when your surgeon gives approval. After surgery, you will slowly begin to see your transformed body as the swelling subsides.

Other Considerations

Scarring is a natural part of any surgery and should be expected. It is important that patients consider a board-certified cosmetic surgeon for this procedure, as they will have the knowledge and skill to minimize scarring and make incisions where they will be less noticeable. After fully recovering, scarring should be minimal and in most areas, hardly noticeable. Patients should not let this deter them from a mommy makeover, as the benefits of this procedure outweigh the scarring.
