Mommy Makeover

A Mommy Makeover in Baton Rouge is a series of cosmetic procedures designed to restore a woman’s physical appearance after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. After having a baby, most women are eager to regain their pre-pregnancy appearance. Exercise, diet, and lifestyle changes can sometimes help, but they are often not enough.

In areas like the abdomen and breasts, it is very difficult to restore your pre-pregnancy appearance on your own. In such cases, a Mommy Makeover is quite effective and is typically the best solution. Each Mommy Makeover procedure is personalized by our physician and involves a series of procedures to achieve a complete body transformation.

First Step: The Consultation

The doctor will go over the details of the surgery, including preparation, price, and recovery. They will also discuss the medications that are administered during the surgery, such as anesthesia and sedation.

The first step in the Mommy Makeover surgery is your consultation with a plastic surgeon from Associates in Plastic Surgery. They will perform an examination and ask you about your goals for the procedure, then they will create a customized surgical plan including the chosen procedures.

Procedures That Can Be Included in a Mommy Makeover

Tummy Tuck: Also called abdominoplasty, this popular procedure helps to remove excess fat and skin from the stomach. This procedure can improve stretch marks on the lower abdomen as well. After removing the excess fat and skin, the sagging abdominal muscles are tightened using internal sutures. The belly button may also be repositioned.

Liposuction: Stubborn fat deposits can accumulate in areas such as the thighs, hips, and flanks. These areas cannot be improved through exercise and diet alone. Liposuction is used to restore shape and contours to the body by removing this fat. First, tumescent fluid is injected, which causes the fat cells to swell and loosen. A cannula is then inserted into these areas to suction out the fat.

Breast Augmentation: In this procedure, the volume of the breasts is increased using FDA-approved breast implants. The size of the incisions will depend on the amount of augmentation. The implants may be placed under or above the pectoral musculature. The breast implant type chosen (silicone or saline) will depend on the patient’s needs and goals.

Breast Lift: Mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, treats uneven, sagging, or flat breasts. The pattern of the incisions will depend on the amount of excess tissue that must be removed. Often, the nipple and areola have to be repositioned. At the end of the surgery, the remaining skin is tightened and the incisions are closed.

Breast Lift with Implants: In cases where the breasts have lost volume and shape, a breast augmentation may be combined with a breast lift for a procedure called augmentation mastopexy. This restore breast size while addressing sagging.

Breast Reduction: During pregnancy, a woman’s breasts swell up in both shape and size. This can lead to issues such as neck and back pain, breathing difficulties, rashes, and posture problems. Breast reduction resolves these issues by removing excess glandular and fatty tissue and excess skin. The remaining skin is tightened.


What to Expect During a Mommy Makeover

Patients undergoing a mommy makeover will be given general anesthesia. The surgeon will make the necessary incisions with artful concealment to complement the patient’s anatomy. They will then make the desired changes.

Performing the combination of procedures generally takes three to five hours. The surgeon may use multiple methods of closure for different incisions. The patient can expect a protective dressing over each incision that must stay dry until removed, usually one to two days following surgery. Drains may be placed to remove any excess fluid.


What to Expect After a Mommy Makeover

Patients should plan a recovery period of three to six weeks with a gradual return to restricted activities. As is the case after any surgery, temporary swelling, bruising, and moderate pain are common and are managed with rest and pain medication if needed.

Restrictions from smoking, driving, strenuous activity, bathing, hot tubs, and swimming should be carefully followed. This will help to avoid complications such as infections or slow incision healing.
