What to Expect from a Mommy Makeover

Being a mom doesn’t have to mean giving up on being you. More and more, moms are reclaiming their bodies after babies with the help of Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Geoghegan and a mommy makeover. If you are considering making yourself over post-pregnancy, here is what you can expect.

Mommy Makeovers Overview

A mommy makeover is a catchall term for plastic surgery procedures performed to restore bodies to their pre-pregnancy states. These procedures are highly personalized to address the specific concerns of each patient. Dr. Geoghegan will sit down with you and discuss your areas of concern and your treatment goals to determine which procedures are most likely to help you achieve your desired results. For one patient, a mommy makeover may include a breast lift and body contouring with liposuction, while another patient may want a tummy tuck and breast augmentation.

Preparation and Procedures

Because no two mommy makeovers are the same, there is no standard preparation or procedure. Generally, to prepare for cosmetic surgery, patients must undergo a review of their medical histories and an exam with blood work to ensure that they are healthy enough for the procedure. Depending on the plastic surgery procedures included in your makeover, you may have general anesthesia, may require an overnight hospital stay, and may need multiple surgeries to achieve your desired results.

Recovery Times

Recovery times also are very dependent on the procedures that are part of your makeover. Dr Jennifer Geoghegan will discuss your recovery time in detail with you before your procedures, so you can prepare appropriately for time off of work and additional help at home. Typically, if you combine multiple procedures into a single surgery, your recovery time may be slightly longer. Scarring also depends on the type of surgery you choose.
