what is a Mommy Makeover?

If you recently went through childbirth, you may want to consider having a mommy makeover. New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters works with women regularly who wish to have their pre-pregnancy shape back.

Childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, but it can dramatically change the shape and look of your breasts and body. With a mommy makeover, you can reclaim your pre-baby look for a more youthful, slimmer, tighter figure.

A mommy makeover 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.

who is a candidate for a mommy makeover?

Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover include women who:

  • Have undergone pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing
  • Aren’t seeing improvements with exercise and a healthy diet
  • Have breasts that are sagging, deflated, and lifeless
  • Have wrinkled, excess skin in the abdominal area
  • Have stubborn fat deposits
  • Want a slimmer, more toned look with improved breasts

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.

how is a mommy makeover done?

The mommy makeover procedure is a body contouring surgery, custom-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 of mommy makeover procedures that Dr. Walters performs are outpatient procedures meaning you can go home after the surgery is complete.

how long is recovery from a mommy makeover?

The procedures included in a mommy makeover are categorized as invasive  surgeries and can involve a large portion of the body. Once leaving the hospital, you will recover at home with the post-operative instructions we supply. Recovering from this surgery is 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 avoided for at least two months.
