Mommy Makeover

Motherhood can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. It can also be incredibly demanding. Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding take a toll on your body. When you’re busy raising your child, you may not be able to devote as much time or energy to dieting and exercise as you’d like. Even if you can eat well and work out, those alone may not be enough to restore your pre-pregnancy body.

At the Center for Plastic Surgery at Castle Rock, we believe mothers shouldn’t have to choose between looking their best and dedicating time to their children. That’s why our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul H. Rhee is proud to offer the mommy makeover to his patients. As a customized set of procedures designed to give you back your pre-pregnancy body, a mommy makeover can improve your body image, confidence, and self-esteem.

Dr. Rhee serves Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, Denver, and nearby areas of Colorado. Call (303) 268-2222 today to schedule a consultation.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is not a single surgery. Instead, it is a collection of procedures that are designed to fully restore your body’s appearance and function following pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.

Every mom is unique. Therefore, every mommy makeover is unique. During your consultation, Dr. Rhee will discuss the changes your body went through as well as your goals and needs to come up with a treatment plan that delivers the results you want.

What Can a Mommy Makeover Do?

The female body undergoes many physical changes throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Your belly and breasts grow and develop stretch marks. Your abdominal muscles stretch and tear. You gain fat. You may be left with C-section scars or deflated breasts. Even if you lose the baby weight, some of these changes won’t reverse on their own.

A mommy makeover can correct issues such as:

  • Loose, sagging skin in the abdominal area
  • Stretched or torn abdominal muscles
  • Protruding belly
  • Sagging, deflated breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Loss of breast volume
  • Reducing the size of enlarged nipples or areolas
  • Stubborn pockets of excess fat

Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

If you’re struggling with any of the above issues following pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, you’re probably a good mommy makeover candidate. Additionally, good mommy makeover candidates also:

  • Are finished having children. A mommy makeover will not prevent you from having more kids in the future, but putting your body through the stresses of childbearing again after your procedure can negatively impact your visual results.
  • Are in good overall health.
  • Are at or near your target weight.
  • Can set aside time for your recovery where your partner or another person can help look after your children.
  • Are nonsmokers, or are willing to quit smoking before surgery and throughout recovery. Smoking can negatively impact your healing process.

What Procedures are Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Because every mommy makeover is different, the procedures that comprise mommy makeovers vary. However, procedures that commonly make them up include:

  • Breast augmentation: If you have lost volume or symmetry in your breasts following breastfeeding, augmentation could improve their appearance.
  • Breast lift: A breast lift can elevate and firm up sagging, deflated breasts and reposition your nipples and areolas.
  • Tummy tuck: A tummy tuck can remove loose, excess abdominal skin, eliminate C-section scars, and improve the appearance of stretch marks.
  • Liposuction: Liposuction can eliminate excess, stubborn deposits of fat that diet and exercise won’t get rid of. Dr. Rhee uses VASERlipo, a less-invasive, ultrasound-assisted liposuction technique that allows for a faster recovery.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Every mommy makeover recovery is dependent on the specific procedures that make it up, so every patient’s recovery will be different. Dr. Rhee will provide you with specific, detailed post-operative instructions that are tailored to your needs.

Generally, though, you will need to take a week or two off of work and avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous exercise until Dr. Rhee clears you to engage in those activities.
