About the Mommy Makeover
Children are a gift and although you are happy to have had your children, you may not be happy with how the process has left you looking. After giving birth, reverting back to your pre-pregnancy body shape and size is often very difficult. For most women this is not just a matter of losing pounds. The reality is that a number of anatomic changes have taken place to accommodate the pregnancy process. Even with a proper diet and a regular exercise routine, most women struggle with a number of specific "trouble areas" and begin worrying that nothing will work for them. They do not see the same body they had prior to pregnancy because their body contour is completely different. However, thanks to the expertise and significant skill level of Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile, your pre-pregnancy body may be achieved and even improved with a mommy makeover. This procedure typically combines several surgeries and often includes a breast lift and tummy tuck. The results may leave you looking and feeling like a new woman again!
During a private consultation, our plastic surgeon will listen to all the concerns each patient has about her body to see if she is a good candidate for these procedures. Many women seeking these treatments and surgeries have:
- Breasts that sag and droop from multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding
- A tummy with bulges of fat that didn’t go away with after-pregnancy weight loss
- Extra skin on the arms, buttock, thighs that didn’t bounce back after pregnancy weight
- A less than desirable shape to their breasts or buttocks and need enhancement to fill in the lost volume after baby
- Multiple areas of the body with visible, unattractive stretch marks
The best candidates for the mommy makeover are women who are finished having children. We strongly encourage women considering the mommy makeover to not plan on having more children. Once the surgeries have taken place, pregnancy will damage the skin with stretching and weight gain, and will require more plastic surgeries in the future.

What to Expect
Pregnancy changes many areas of the body, and a mommy makeover will require careful planning and could be implemented in stages. Our plastic surgeon has years of experience performing these surgeries in one setting, however, sometimes the health of the patient requires more than one surgery date. The end result is still the same, just expect that some women will have more surgeries than other women and will endure a longer recovery time.
Some of the mommy makeover procedures may include a combination of:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift (with or without implants)
- Tummy Tuck
- Thigh Lift
- Butt Lift
- Arm Lift
- Skin rejuvenation (laser treatments, BOTOX, fillers)
Our plastic surgeon will require you to have an overnight stay for observation in the hospital after having multiple surgeries and being under anesthesia for 3 or more hours. This is to ensure our patient’s safety and to limit the risk of infection post-op. We will also ensure our mommy makeover patients have the best in recovery care and pain management after the procedure.
New moms love the fact that once the extra skin has been reduced and tightened, their stretch marks are drastically reduced. Our practice can minimize the remaining stretch marks with nonsurgical treatments such as lasers, microdermabrasion, and/or chemical peels. This does not mean there will not be surgery scars. As with all plastic surgeries, our highly-credentialed plastic surgeon will do the best to minimize scarring with careful incision techniques and placement. While the recovery time does take several months, patients are able to return to a normal routine in about 4 – 6 weeks, and should wait for clearance from the plastic surgeon before starting to exercise again. The entire mommy makeover transformation could take up to a year for recovery. The results may be life changing for many women.
