Mommy Makeover

While many believe there is no greater joy than raising children, every mother knows that the journey of pregnancy comes with a physical toll. Mothers can revitalize their post-pregnancy bodies and restore their self-confidence with a Mommy Makeover. This procedure is a combination of surgical techniques that can correct and improve areas of the body that are most dramatically impacted by pregnancy and breastfeeding, such as stretched and deflated breasts, a bulging stomach, and excess body fat. Dr. Scott Green can develop a customized Mommy Makeover plan during your private consultation and apply his intuitive surgical virtuosity to help you achieve the stunning curves of your dreams.

What a Mommy Makeover Can Achieve:

Enhanced Bustline

Tighter Core

Improved Contours

Mommy Makeover Options

The beauty of the Mommy Makeover is that it can be tailored to a patient’s unique needs and goals. Dr. Green will use his artistic eye to evaluate your specific needs during your consultation and determine which Mommy Makeover options will give you the personalized, stunning results you want.

Breast augmentation involves using implants to enhance post-pregnancy breasts. Patients can choose between either saline or silicone implants, both of which are available in various sizes. Implants may be placed under or above the pectoral muscle, and they provide the following advantages:

Volume Restoration

Breast augmentation restores breast volume lost due to pregnancy and nursing. Patients with deflated or naturally small breasts can benefit from breast augmentation.

Breast Symmetry

Patients can enjoy a more symmetrical bustline with breast augmentation. Implant sizing is entirely customizable, giving patients balanced and proportionate breasts.

Breast Shape

Breast implants create a more pleasing and youthful breast shape. Patients can choose from several different implant profiles to achieve the breast projection they desire.


Breast lift surgery is designed to correct breast ptosis, or sagging. It is the most appropriate solution for lifting and repositioning breast tissue to produce a firmer, perkier bust. Breast lift surgery can address different degrees of breast sagging:

Mild Sagging

A doughnut lift is ideal for patients with mild breast ptosis. This technique involves two concentric incisions around each areola.

Moderate Sagging

A lollipop lift is ideal for patients with moderate breast ptosis. This technique involves one incision that encircles each areola and another that follows down the breasts to the natural crease.

Severe Sagging

An anchor lift is ideal for patients with severe breast ptosis. This technique involves three incisions. The first incision encircles each areola, the second extends down the breasts to the natural crease, and the third runs along the inframammary fold.


A tummy tuck creates a tighter, slimmer midsection by addressing abdominal imperfections, including:

Weakened Muscles

Pregnancy typically results in a separation of the abdominal muscles called diastasis recti. A tummy tuck tightens these compromised tissues, producing a firmer, stronger core.

Loose Skin

Loose, excess skin around the midsection is a common outcome of pregnancy. Patients can recover their smooth, pre-baby stomach by undergoing tummy tuck surgery.

Stubborn Fat

Due to weight gain and hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy, women often accumulate fat deposits around their midsection. Stubborn, unwanted belly fat can be removed during a tummy tuck.


Women who struggle with unwanted fat may be considering liposuction. Liposuction is a fat removal procedure that sculpts and slims contours throughout the body. This procedure adds the final touches to a Mommy Makeover by eliminating pockets of localized fat in the following problem areas:

• Abdomen
• Flanks
• Hips
• Back
• Arms
• Neck


Mommy Makeover Concerns

Recovery

Patients can expect some soreness, swelling, and bruising following their Mommy Makeover procedure. Although patients may wish to remain in repose following their surgery, they are encouraged to start walking as soon as possible to promote healing and prevent blood clots. Vigorous activities should be postponed until the patient receives approval from the surgeon, which is usually at approximately four weeks. Most discomfort dissipates after a few days, and patients may return to work after two weeks.

Scars

Because Dr. Green places the incisions in discreet locations, any scars that result from a Mommy Makeover can be hidden with clothing or a bathing suit. Over time, any visible scarring is likely to fade.

Cost

The cost of a Mommy Makeover depends greatly on several factors including (but not limited to) procedures used, the extent of correction, and anesthesia fees. At your consultation appointment, Dr. Green’s financial coordinator will be able to calculate the costs for your unique surgery.

Pain

To manage any pain-related discomfort, patients may take oral pain relievers as recommended by Dr. Green.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I get a Mommy Makeover if I plan to become pregnant again?

    It is recommended that patients schedule their Mommy Makeover after they are done bearing children. A subsequent pregnancy can compromise the results of a Mommy Makeover.

    Yes. Smoking interferes with the healing process and should be avoided for three weeks before and three weeks after surgery.
