About the Mommy Makeover
Longing to see the body you had before you had a baby? At Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery, we offer a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures for women desiring tighter skin, uplifted breasts, and a curvier contour in all the right places. Our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, has many years of training and special skills in restoring a woman’s body after multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding combined with hormonal changes and weight fluctuations. During a completely private consultation at our practice in Woodstock or Roswell, GA, we will discuss exactly which areas of the body would benefit the most from the mommy makeover, and create a customized plan and strategy for staging the surgeries, if needed, for a safe and effective treatment.
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, and/or 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 pregnancy
- 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 as it will damage the skin by stretching and weight gain, and will require more plastic surgeries in the future.
Mommy Makeover Reviews
"I get my all of my injectables from Dr. Yalif and even after moving make the commute to see him for regular followups. As of now I have received Botox and Juvederm multiple times and each time was satisfactory. I have also made plans to have my breast augmentation redone by Dr. Y along with with a mommy make over after my second child is born. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Y, not only because of his qualifications but because of the first hand results I have seen on others."- D.T. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2017
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 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 removed 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 his 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 are life-changing for many women.
