What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover consists of a selection of cosmetic procedures to restore the appearance of a woman’s body after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. There are many different areas of the body that can be addressed with cosmetic surgery, non-surgical treatments, or a combination of both.

A mommy makeover can provide the following benefits:

  • Improve overall breast contour and symmetry.
  • Restore volume to breasts and correct sagging.
  • Remove excess, lax skin from the abdomen.
  • Repair separated abdominal muscles that cause a protruding tummy.
  • Reduce stubborn pockets of fat.
  • Refine body contours for more confidence.

I have had the best experience with Dr. Willis and Leah. I have had filler, Dysport, and I've been under the knife with Dr. Willis and I've been so happy with all of my results. I actually feel like a part of their family, I can call whenever I need anything and they both make me feel like they care about me and my results.

Nothing but praise for Charlottesville Plastic Surgery. Dr. Willis explained everything he needed to do clearly and his work was top-notch. When needed he made an immediate referral for me and explained exactly what I would expect from that. Great communication, efficient office.

Dr. Willis and his staff were amazing! Very calm, clean and professional atmosphere. They were inviting and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I went in for a consultation and had my lip filler procedure in the same day. Quick and painless. The results are perfect. I highly recommend Dr.Willis and taking advantage of the referral program. 10/10!

Who is a Candidate?

Women who would like to improve their body contours following childbirth or simply due to aging can often benefit from a mommy makeover. However, if you are considering breast surgery as part of your mommy makeover you would wait until several months after you are done breastfeeding. It is also best to wait until you’re finished having children before undergoing his procedure, as future pregnancy can negatively impact results.

The Mommy Makeover Procedure

A mommy makeover is highly personalized and the procedures that are included will vary depending on your individual anatomy and overall aesthetic goals. The most common procedures performed in a mommy makeover include the following

Breast Augmentation

This procedure adds volume and projection to the breasts through the placement of breast implants. There is a selection of different implant types and styles to choose from to achieve your desired look.

Breast Lift

A breast lift removed excess sagging skin and tissue and lifts to breasts to a perkier, more youthful position.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is performed to eliminate excess lax skin and fat from the abdomen, as well as restore weakened or separated abdominal muscles. Patients can enjoy a flatter, firmer abdomen after this procedure.

Liposuction

Liposuction is perform3ed to remove excess deposits of body fat to sculpt and improve overall body shay. There are an array of different liposuction techniques that can be used today.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) procedure involves collecting fat from one area of the body, purifying it, and then injecting it into the buttocks to give it more volume and better shape.

Thigh Lift

Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat for a better proportioned inner thigh. Patients often undergo this procedure after weight loss or pregnancy.

Labiaplasty

A labiaplasty refers to a procedure that reduces the length of the labia minora. This can help to boost a woman’s confidence after changes to the genitals after childbirth or due to aging.

Recovery

Recovery time following your mommy makeover will vary depending on the number and extent of your procedures. Your incision sites will be bandaged, and you may be asked to wear special compression garments to reduce swelling during recovery. We advise that you avoid strenuous activity for the first few days, and avoid heavy lifting over 10 lbs. for at least six weeks. It is important that you follow Dr. Willis’ recovery instructions to ensure you receive the best results.
