What is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a series of surgical procedures designed specifically for each individual woman. A Mommy Makeover can include a breast enhancement procedures such as augmentation, reduction, revision, lift, nipple repositioning, or body contouring procedures like liposuction or a tummy tuck. These procedures can help address the various changes that a woman’s body may experience due to pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.

How is a Mommy Makeover performed?

A Mommy Makeover is going to look different for each woman. Many women want a combination of a tummy tuck and breast enhancement to be included in their personalized Mommy Makeover. In your initial consultation with Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ringelman, you will discuss your beauty goals and expectations for your procedures. He will be able to discuss the number of surgical options that are available and answer any questions you may have. Your procedures will be conducted under general anesthesia.

  • A tummy tuck will be performed first by making incisions across the abdomen area and pulling the exterior skin back. Your abdominal muscles will then be tightened, excess skin removed, and the skin will be stretched to give you a smooth, tight stomach. The incision will then be closed using sutures.
  • Liposuction may be recommended to help address any stubborn fat that has not gone away with traditional weight loss methods. After having children, many women struggle to lose fat from specific problem areas of their bodies, such as the hips, bra-line, and thighs.
  • Breast enhancement incisions will be made in the armpit, beneath the breast, or around the areola depending on if you are seeking breast augmentation, reduction, or revision. For breast augmentation, your implant or fat transfer will then be added followed by Dr. Ringelman closing the incision with sutures.

It is suggested that you not engage in strenuous activity until you are fully healed. You may talk to Dr. Ringelman in your initial consultation to discuss what recovery might look like for your specific circumstances and procedures.
