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.
Mommy Makeover Reviews

"Dr. Walters is a highly skilled surgeon with a huge heart. He turned my double mastectomy and reconstruction into a mommy makeover by telling me that I "deserved" to look great. I have never felt this good about my body and I am not even two weeks post surgery yet! He answers text messages quickly, spends a lot of time answering questions during office visits and ensures that his patients are catered to on every level while in the hospital. I will recommend Dr. Walters to anyone I can find needing breast reconstruction. He turned a very difficult, life-changing diagnosis into a positive experience. That is a gift and my husband and I are truly grateful."- H.H. / Facebook / Aug 27, 2016

"I’ve been looking now for about a year for a ps who would understand my needs. I finally made an appointment with 2 different ps in my area. Both had different things to say about my breast and tummy area( legs and arms also but for a different time.) I think I have made a decision. I also made a second consultation visit to talk more about what to expect. I had the sleeve surgery in 2015 and lost 100lbs. I’m also a mom of 2 witch have both been breastfed, needless to say that my body has been through a lot and is not very appealing to the eye. My skin and saggy breast are causing me to be depressed and really not wanting to do anything anymore. I don’t wear cute cloths anymore I don’t even attempt to dress sexy. For months I’ve been wearing sweatshirts and sweatpants. I dread getting a shower or being intimate with my husband. Just thinking I have to get naked especially in front of my husband or just looking in the mirror makes tears fall. I just want to feel happy in my skin again and get back to loving myself and have more convenience.Updated on 28 Jun 2019:I had my surgery on Friday June 21. Yesterday was the first day I got to see my stomach, and it looks AMAZING. I’m still very swollen but my surgeon is hands down the best. I couldn’t be more happy. My breast look perfect and my booty is round. I can’t wait until all my swelling is gone and see how I look!"- C. / RealSelf / Jun 19, 2019
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.
