About Mommy Makeover
Oklahoma City cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin regularly work with women who wish to get their pre-pregnancy physique back. While childbirth is an amazing and miraculous milestone for any woman, it almost inevitably changes the contour and shape of certain body parts — and could leave one feeling a little self-conscious. However, it is possible to reclaim the slim and taut appearance of your youth with the assistance of a mommy makeover at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, OK. This body contouring treatment uses a combination of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to reshape the abdomen and breasts, and other affected body parts — and virtually any body part affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc., can be repaired. Furthermore, nonsurgical treatments and services can be incorporated to repair surface imperfections, such as skin problems or stretch marks, from the rapid stretching and fluctuation of the skin, tissue, and underlying muscles during pregnancy.

"Both physicians are amazing- extremely knowledgeable, and carry themselves with the highest class. They both sit down and really listen to your desires, and discuss your best options. I immediately felt welcomed and comfortable, in a place that I was prepared to feel vulnerable and uncomfortable. The anesthesia provider was the best I could have dreamt up, and the nurses, scrub techs and ancillary staff were inviting and remembered me by name. The whole establishment blew my high expectations out of the water! And the results I achieved were mind- blowing."- V.S. / Facebook / Dec 04, 2018

Mommy Makeover Surgical Technique
The mommy makeover procedure is a unique surgery tailored for each individual woman by Drs. Nuveen and Caplin –based on the areas of concern to be corrected. A variety of procedures can be considered together — the most popular treatments being a breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and/or liposuction. These surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours, depending on the complexity. Also, a day-long stay at the hospital may be needed. It is common to also incorporate nonsurgical methods, such as an injectable or laser treatment, to smooth facial wrinkles and diminish surface imperfections.
Mommy Makeover After Your Surgery
Once you leave the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest and careful aftercare instructions. This phase is generally a slow process. Standing upright will be difficult the first couple of weeks, and a carefully followed, at-home treatment protocol will be needed to ensure the incisions heal properly. The majority of women find the healing process can last around six months. Even while the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to get back to a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Exercise should be held off for approximately two months. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates can make an incredible impact for women, giving them their self-confidence once again.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs will vary, depending on which procedures are part of your surgical plan. During your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will develop your treatment plan and then a member of our team will inform you of the cost. A mommy makeover is about rejuvenating your confidence after having children so it is best to concentrate on reaching your goals rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates accepts several payment methods, and we can give you information on finding low-interest financing to make your mommy makeover affordable.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation, we will work to understand your concerns and goals before performing a physical examination. Afterward, one of our surgeons can provide you with suggestions on what to include in your surgical plan. Typically, women select a breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both), plus a tummy tuck and liposuction.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body, which is why nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to produce noticeable improvements. During your consultation, Drs. Nuveen or Chaplin will explain both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. After listening to your concerns and goals, we will discuss whether nonsurgical procedures, such as lasers and injectables, could help further amplify your surgical results.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a rejuvenated figure, it does leave surgical scars. Our surgeons will make small, clean incisions and most scars will be placed where they can be covered with swimsuits and underwear. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, a member of our team will give you tips on scar care so your stitches heal and fade.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete so your results aren't compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk of changing if you get pregnant again. Should you have another child after a mommy makeover, another surgery may be done to restore your results.
