About the Mommy Makeover

New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters works with women regularly who wish to have their pre-pregnancy shape back. While childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, it usually does change the tightness and shape of certain body parts and could leave one feeling a little frustrated. The most exciting news is that it's achievable to reclaim a more youthful, slimmer, tighter figure with the assistance of the mommy makeover surgical procedure performed by Dr. Jules Walters. This body contouring treatment uses a combination of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to reshape both the upper body (arms and breasts) and lower body (such as the tummy) — virtually any body part affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc. can be repaired.  Dr. Walters usually recommends fat grafting to the breasts or the buttocks to enhance your shape in a beautiful, natural way during his custom mommy makeover procedures.

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for body contouring and a mommy makeover are individuals who have undergone pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing and have tried to get a toned, slimmer appearance through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. For many women, surgical intervention is recommended to attain their pre-pregnancy figure. If you are past childbearing and are displeased with the imperfections remaining on your body (such as lifeless, deflated breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of fat tissue) this procedure could help you. The overall goal of Dr. Walters is to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body so you can get back to living life without additional concern about your appearance.

Surgical Technique

The mommy makeover procedure is a body contouring surgery, tailored for each woman by plastic surgeon Dr. Walters based on the areas of concern to be reshaped. A variety of procedures can be paired together — the most popular treatments are liposuction of the flanks, abdomen, and back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, tummy tuck surgery, and fat grafting either to the breasts or the buttocks. The mommy makeover surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 6 hours depending on the complexity. The majority mommy makeover procedures that Dr. Walters performs are outpatient procedures. 

What to Expect

This cosmetic body contouring procedure is categorized as an invasive process and can surgically cover a large portion of the body. Once leaving the hospital, you will begin to recover at home with the post-operative instructions we supply and rest. Recovering from this surgery is generally a gradual process. Moving around and walking straight will be difficult the first week or so, and a step-by-step, at-home healing protocol will be provided to help the incisions heal properly. Most patients find the process can last around six months. Even while the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to return to a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Exercise should be held off for around two months. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at Dr. Jules Walters can be an amazing journey for women, providing them with a renewed self-esteem once again.
