Restore Your Pre-Pregnancy Figure

Becoming a mother is a beautiful experience filled with love, joy, and boundless moments of connection. However, alongside the profound joy of motherhood comes a less talked-about reality: the changes that often occur to your body. Pregnancy and childbirth are significant life events but often leave little preparation for these physical changes that can include loose abdominal skin, stretched muscles (diastasis recti), deflated and potentially sagging breasts, and stubborn fat deposits. At Higdon Plastic Surgery, we understand the complex dichotomy of motherhood – the profound joy it brings alongside the physical changes that sometimes may leave you feeling less confident in your skin. That's why our Mommy Makeover procedure offers a personalized solution to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy confidence and embrace the beauty of motherhood with renewed self-assurance.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A Mommy Makeover is a customized cosmetic surgery designed to address the physical changes in a woman's body following pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Typically combining various surgical techniques, such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast augmentation, breast lift or reduction, and liposuction, a Mommy Makeover aims to restore and rejuvenate the breasts, abdomen, and other areas affected by pregnancy, helping mothers regain their pre-pregnancy body contours and confidence. By tailoring the procedure to each individual's specific needs and goals, Dr. Higdon’s Mommy Makeovers offer a comprehensive solution to address multiple concerns in a single surgical session, providing transformative results for renewed self-assurance. This consolidated approach not only decreases recovery time but also has the potential to reduce the overall cost, making it an attractive option for many mothers seeking post-pregnancy rejuvenation.

Is a Mommy Makeover Right for Me?

A Mommy Makeover may be ideal if you've experienced significant changes in your body following pregnancy and childbirth and desire to restore your pre-pregnancy figure and confidence. Common symptoms that indicate you may benefit from this procedure include loose abdominal skin, deflated or sagging breasts, stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, and overall dissatisfaction with your post-pregnancy appearance. However, the only way to determine if a Mommy Makeover fits your needs is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kye Higdon at Higdon Plastic Surgery.  Dr. Higdon understands the importance of listening to your goals and concerns during the consultation process. He will take the time to assess your needs, discuss the nuances of your desired results, and evaluate how different approaches can benefit you based on your anatomy. Dr. Higdon's personalized approach aims to create a customized treatment plan that aligns with your goals, leaving you confident and informed about every aspect of your Mommy Makeover before proceeding.

What to Expect: The Mommy Makeover Procedure

During a Mommy Makeover procedure with Dr. Higdon, we typically begin with administering anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. Once you are comfortably sedated, Dr. Higdon will begin with specific procedures tailored to your needs. For example, breast rejuvenation in Dr. Higdon’s Mommy Makeovers involve breast augmentation, breast lift/mastopexy, or a combination of breast augmentation and a lift, or a breast reduction. Breast augmentation involves the placement of implants to enhance breast volume and shape, while a breast lift lifts and reshapes sagging breasts for a more youthful appearance. In some instances, Dr. Higdon may combine procedures, such as performing breast augmentation with mastopexy, to address both volume loss and breast sagging simultaneously. In cases where breast reduction is desired, Dr. Higdon will reduce areas of breast excess and carefully reshape the breast, often lifting the nipple position to restore ideal breast aesthetics. When addressing concerns related to the abdomen, such as loose skin and separated abdominal muscles, Dr. Higdon often performs an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), which involves removing excess skin and fat, tightening the abdominal muscles, and repositioning the belly button for a more youthful contour. Liposuction may also be utilized to remove stubborn fat deposits and further enhance body contours. Throughout the procedure, Dr. Higdon meticulously employs his expertise and innovative techniques to ensure optimal results with minimal scarring and downtime. Throughout the procedure and your recovery, Dr. Higdon and his team prioritize your safety, comfort, and satisfaction, ensuring a positive experience from start to finish.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Following a Mommy Makeover procedure by Dr. Higdon, patients typically experience a phased recovery process that involves several key milestones. Initially, you will spend less than an hour in the recovery area postoperatively before being discharged to begin your recovery journey. During the first couple of weeks, specific care is required to ensure optimal healing, particularly for abdominoplasty patients. This includes maintaining a bent position at the hips to alleviate pressure on the healing tummy tuck incision and patients sleeping on their backs in a semi-upright position for usually a couple of weeks. Lifting restrictions, typically set at less than 5 lbs for 6-8 weeks, are also crucial to support healing in both the abdominal and breast areas. While walking is encouraged within the first week after surgery, you may gradually resume full exercise after a couple of months.

Dr. Higdon and our team provide comprehensive guidance and support throughout recovery, scheduling regular follow-up appointments to monitor progress and address concerns. These visits are essential for ensuring a smooth recovery and maximizing the long-term results of your Mommy Makeover procedure. Additionally, scar treatment with silicone sheets, silicone gel, or moisturizing solutions may begin around 2-3 weeks post-surgery to promote optimal healing and minimize the appearance of scars. Overall, the recovery journey is a vital part of the Mommy Makeover process, carefully planned to achieve optimal outcomes and ensure satisfaction with your results.
