Becoming a mother is a life-changing experience, and nobody knows quite how literal that statement is than new moms.

Your little bundle of joy is everything you hoped for and more, but your post-pregnancy body may leave a little, or a lot, to be desired. While diet and exercise can help, residual baby weight, breast sagging, belly bulge, and excess skin can be frustrating roadblocks for women struggling to reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies. Sometimes you just need a little help.

Mommy Makeover Procedures

The Mommy Makeover includes a variety of procedures and treatments from which to choose. You can opt for a small correction or combine multiple procedures for a total transformation.

  • Breast lift –raises and firms the breast, removes excess skin and tightens surrounding tissue, and  can reduce enlarged areolas
  • Breast augmentation – gel or cohesive profile gel implants (“gummy bear”) are implanted into the breast to restore volume and shape; can be paired with a breast lift to restore a youthful look
  • Breast reduction – reduces the size of the breast to restore a more youthful appearance
  • Tummy tuck – restores a flatter, firmer abdominal contour by repairing weakened abdominal muscles and removing excess fat, tissue, and skin.
  • Liposuction – body contouring is fine-tuned by suctioning unwanted fat cells
  • Rejuvenation and skin treatment at our Med Spa – includes a variety of procedures and treatments to leave your skin healthy, glowing, and flawless

Expert Tips for Optimal Mommy Makeover Results

  • If your children are young, plan to have someone available to help you with the kids and household during your recovery, especially in the first week. Recovery time can range anywhere from 1-4 weeks, but resting in the first few days is absolutely critical.
  • If you are planning to have more children in the near future, consider waiting to have your Mommy Makeover. While pregnancy is possible following surgery, your results can be undone during subsequent pregnancies.
  • Maintain good physical health and nutrition while undergoing a Mommy Makeover in order to achieve the best results. Fluctuations in weight can negatively affect the results of your procedure.

Getting your body back after pregnancy and childbirth can be challenging. If you’ve tried everything, and just can’t seem to achieve the results you want, consider seeking help with a Mommy Makeover from Dr. Tim R. Love, MD.

How Weight Loss Can Affect Your Breast Implants

DR TIM LOVE - TUMMY TUCK (1)Many women get a breast augmentation as part of an overall plan to improve their health. In addition to undergoing the procedure, they may also be planning to lose weight or adding muscle through a workout regimen. Some women undergo breast augmentation after they’ve completed their child-bearing and want to makeover their bodies.

How does weight loss impact breast implants?

A small weight drop after getting breast implants will have little to no impact on your implants and breast size. A patient would have to lose a significant amount of weight (in ratio to their overall weight) to see a decrease in breast size and a potential impact on the implants. A few pounds, say 10-15 pounds for an average-sized woman, would not have an effect.

Much depends on how much fatty tissue is in the breast and the ratio of that tissue to the glandular tissue. There’s no exact formula for this, you should consult your family doctor and/or plastic surgeon if you have lost weight or are planning to lose weight after the surgery.

Will my breast implants still look good after weight loss?

Most likely they will. The reason is that most breast augmentation patients have little fat in their breasts to begin with. Smaller breasts do not have much fat, so weight loss should not impact the breast augmentation. In fact, weight loss may actually enhance implant results, helping your breasts look fuller. Results may vary however, so pay close attention to your breasts during and after the period of weight loss to see how they look.
