Giving birth to a child can be one of the most fulfilling and rewarding experiences in a woman’s life. The joy of having a child begins a lifetime commitment to helping raise a baby from birth to adulthood. Unfortunately, for some women, giving birth also means the end to the slim, youthful, and fit figure they enjoyed before pregnancy. Pregnancy and childbirth are major events that put a tremendous amount of physical strain on a woman’s body and can result in permanent changes in a woman’s physical appearance.

But the good news is, you don’t have to give up the young, sexy, and beautiful body you loved before you got pregnant. You can get back that same self-confidence that came from feeling and looking your best. At Gaines Plastic Surgery, our Gainesville plastic surgeon, Dr. Greg Gaines, is experienced in performing tummy tuck and other plastic surgery procedures to help women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies after having a child.

Are You Ready for a Mommy Makeover?

If you are interested in regaining the same slim, shapely, and firm body you remember having before having a child or multiple children, you may be looking for what is commonly called a “mommy makeover.” While it is widely referred to with a singular name, it is in fact a package of procedures and treatments, which when done together or by mixing and matching several procedures in one session, can achieve amazing results.

Plastic surgery procedures and cosmetic treatments which commonly are included in a mommy makeover may include:

  • Breast lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast reduction
  • Body sculpting
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Face lift
  • Genital rejuvenation

Planning Your Mommy Makeover

Before you undergo your mommy makeover, it is important to plan and prepare for the procedure. This increases the chances that you can achieve the best results and the easiest recovery period possible. The best candidates for mommy makeovers are in good overall health, do not smoke, and are not taking any drugs that thin the blood, which can cause complications in surgery.

Our plastic surgeon will meet with you before your surgery is scheduled to go over in detail the procedures that can help you achieve the best possible results. No two mommy makeovers are created equal, so the procedures to be performed must be carefully tailored to your individual situation and medical condition.

After your mommy makeover, you will be asked to avoid certain activities to reduce the risk of complications during your recovery. You may be advised to stay in an after-care facility for a few days following your surgery, or you may be allowed to return home right away with help to keep you comfortable and cared for as you recover. Again, our Gainesville tummy tuck surgeon can discuss all of these details with you during your pre-surgery consultation.
