What is a mommy makeover and is it right for me?

The term “mommy makeover” is used a lot on social media but it is sometimes unclear exactly what that means. Patients often ask what is a mommy makeover, and is it right for me? How much down time does it require?

Many moms, despite a commitment to dieting, exercise and a healthy lifestyle, are often unable to overcome all of the effects of pregnancy. They can be bothered by loose skin on the tummy, muscle separation that makes you still look like you are pregnant, and sagging or deflated breasts, among others. A mommy makeover will address all of these things.

Being a female, and a mother herself, Dr. Christopoulos understands your unique needs. During your consultation with Dr. Niki Christopoulos, a double Board-Certified female Plastic Surgeon, you will both discuss what concerns you may have and what areas you would like to treat.

What is included in a mommy makeover?

Mommy makeovers will tighten your tummy muscles, contour and define your waist, and restore a youthful breast contour. The surgery is typically comprised of a tummy tuck with liposuction plus a breast surgery or a combination of a:

The exact combination of procedures is as unique as you are, depending on your individual anatomy, lifestyle and wishes. You will discuss all of this in detail after your personalized consultation with Dr. Niki Christopoulos.

Mommy makeover preparation

Planning for your procedure is very important. You must consider time for healing. In most cases a patient that works a desk type of job will need 10-14 days off of work, and 6 weeks for resumption of full activities. Make sure you allow proper time to recover after surgery and that you have some help around the house with young children, especially for the first 5-7 days.

While the procedures are straightforward and most women recover very nicely, it is still surgery, and so your body needs time to heal. The benefit is not only that you look fabulous but most patients regain their self-confidence and look and feel their best. This procedure can really transform you both physically and mentally.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Real Patient Testimonials

I highly recommend Dr. Christopoulos for a mommy makeover
At 45 years old I had a mommy makeover after having three kids. I actually didn’t interview any doctors except Dr C – I felt so at ease and comfortable with her that I didn’t need to go to anyone else. I’m 3 months out and she did amazing work. Her staff was so caring and accommodating – and it was so nice being able to work with a female plastic surgeon who understands the concerns and wishes of a woman. I highly recommend her!!

Perfect Experience from Start to Finish
I had the absolute best experience from start to finish and trust Dr. Christopoulos completely. She explained everything thoroughly in the consultation, from my expected results to the amount of discomfort I would have.
I am currently 4 months out of my mommy makeover and could not be happier with my results. She was knowledgeable, caring, honest and treated me as if I were a friend. I would HIGHLY recommend her and her staff for anyone who wants plastic surgery, she is amazing!
