Mommy Makeover


Get back to yourself

Having children can bring great joy to our lives, but it can also lead to certain changes in our bodies that we may find undesirable. For instance, stretched abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) can result in a "mommy pooch", weight gain on the hips and thighs, breasts may sag, and stretch marks may appear. It's important to remember that such changes are completely natural and vary for each woman.

But here's the good news! You have the option to embrace your post-pregnancy journey and regain your joy and confidence in your body through a mommy makeover. This special plastic surgery procedure is specifically designed to assist moms in reclaiming their pre-baby bodies and boosting their self-esteem.

What’s involved in a mommy makeover procedure?


A mommy makeover typically involves a combination of surgical procedures tailored to the individual needs and goals of the patient. The specific procedures included can vary but commonly address areas such as the breasts and abdomen.


For the breasts, procedures like breast augmentation, breast lift, or a combination of both may be performed to restore volume, improve shape, and correct sagging or asymmetry caused by pregnancy or breastfeeding.


In the abdominal area, a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is often performed to remove excess skin, tighten the abdominal muscles, and create a flatter and more toned appearance. Liposuction may also be used to remove stubborn fat deposits in various areas of the body, such as the hips, thighs, or buttocks, to further enhance overall body contour.


It’s important to note that the specific combination of procedures will depend on the individual patient’s needs, desired outcomes, and the recommendations of the plastic surgeon. Before the procedure, a thorough consultation with Dr. Hedi is essential to determine the most appropriate surgical plan for achieving your desired results.

What should I expect in terms of recovery after a mommy makeover?


Recovery time and aftercare can differ for each person and vary depending on the extent of the procedures involved, but in general, you can expect to be on light duty for 2-4 weeks following your surgical procedures and full recovery is reached at about 6 months post-surgery.


During the initial phase of recovery, you may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising, but these symptoms should gradually subside. It’s essential to follow Dr. Hedi’s post-operative instructions and attend all follow-up appointments for proper monitoring.


Aftercare following a mommy makeover often includes wearing compression garments to manage swelling and promote healing. You’ll need to avoid strenuous activities or heavy lifting for a few weeks, gradually reintroducing exercise as approved by your surgeon. It’s crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow a balanced diet to retain the best long-term results.


Again, each person’s situation will be different and Dr. Hedi will provide specific guidance based on your unique situation as well as full post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process.
