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.

What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?

Ideal candidates for mommy makeover are patients who have gone through pregnancy and childbirth and have tried to attain a younger-looking and tighter body through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgery is desired to attain their pre-pregnancy body. If you have completed childbearing and are unhappy with the effects left behind, such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted fat in the lower back, flanks, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could be beneficial for you. The goal of Dr. Nuveen is to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy shape — so you can resume life without additional concern about your body.

Am I a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?

The right candidates for this surgery are individuals who have undergone pregnancy and childbirth and have tried to achieve a toned, slimmer appearance through diet and exercise with little result. For many women, surgery is necessary to get their pre-pregnancy body. If you are past childbearing but you are unhappy with the side effects left behind, such as deflated, sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted fat in the lower back, flanks, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could help you. The goal of Dr. Nuveen is to help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure so you can get back to living life without feeling self-conscious.

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.

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.
