ABOUT THE MOMMY MAKEOVER
Our experienced team of plastic surgeons frequently consult with women who desperately yearn for their pre-pregnancy silhouette. Even though childbirth is a joyous and miraculous moment for any parent, the resulting changes can almost always be seen in one's figure, which can cause a great deal of frustration for many. The great news is that it's possible to get a slim and toned body once more with the help of the mommy makeover procedure offered at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & MedSpa. The mommy makeover procedure uses a blend of liposuction and skin removal to target the breasts, stomach, buttock, and thighs. Essentially, any area affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding can be corrected. In addition, nonsurgical procedures can be performed to address surface irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation and blotchy skin, caused by the quick fluctuation and stretching of the tissue and skin during pregnancy.
"Top notch physicians who do wonderful work and truly care about their patients. Highly recommend"- I.C. / Facebook / Apr 19, 2019
"I went here for a breast augmentation after a friend shared her experience with me. My consultation with Dr. Ehret was free and very informative. Himself and staff made me feel comfortable enough to schedule my surgery there. I was given many options for the procedure, payments, and it was made clear to me that results can vary due to every body being and healing at in its own way. The day of surgery my nerves kicked in and I was very overwhelmed. The ladies in the pre op room made me feel much better and helped me to relax by talking me through the procedure. My 48 hour and 6 week checkup both went really well and I am so thankful I selected this office for my procedure! I will continue to refer others there in the future."- G. / Google / May 24, 2019

They sang to me it was absolutely hilarious and made sure not only that I was comfortable but that it was a Fun experience!!! Dr. Ehert was so kind every step of the way! I highly recommend this surgical center and so grateful for the best staff Including Staucia Cullivan who was there until the end.

"Dr. Perry is a miracle worker! I've had Botox treatments in the past from other providers in the Tacoma and Puyallup area, but the results have been of no comparison to Dr. Perry's wonderful work! Front desk and the nursing staff are very professional and friendly. Thank you Dr. Perry! My forehead looks absolutely amazing and wrinkle free!"- S.W. / Yelp / May 08, 2019
"The Best Experience Anyone Could Ask for with Dr. Woodman - Dr. Woodman was very patient and professional. The results were MUCH better than I ever imagined. My skin is so smooth and I have almost no sun spots left. I do NOT look like I am in a wind tunnel at all! It is all natural. My husband used to do this years ago when ENT's did them. He is very impressed with the very natural results. I highly recommend you do anything you want with Dr. Woodman. I have nothing negative to say. I will go to him again if needed, although it is an hour drive away."- B. / RealSelf / Apr 29, 2019
The right candidates for a mommy makeover procedure are patients who have completed their planned pregnancies and worked to attain a tighter, younger-looking body through diet and exercise with few results. For many new moms, surgery can be necessary to reclaim their pre-pregnancy shape. If you have finished childbearing but are dissatisfied with the visual 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 a great option for you. Our goal at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & MedSpa is to help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure so you can resume life without worry or insecurity.
A mommy makeover is a custom treatment that is individually tailored for patients by our plastic surgeons based on your specific problem areas. Many of these procedures can be executed together, the most common being breast lift with or without implants, abdominoplasty, and liposuction. All of these procedures are performed using general anesthesia, taking 3 – 7 hours, depending on the number of treatments involved. An overnight stay at the hospital may be required. Your treatment plan could also include nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, such as laser treatments and injectables, to soften facial lines and reduce surface irregularities.
WHAT TO EXPECT
After a recovery period in the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest and proper aftercare. Healing from a mommy makeover is generally a slow process. Standing upright will be hard in the first couple of weeks. To ensure that your incisions and sutures heal properly, carefully following an at-home protocol will be necessary. Many of our patients report that the healing time for their surgery takes about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients are able to get back to a normal routine within a couple of weeks. You should avoid working out until you receive your surgeon's approval to continue these activities. This surgery often has an incredible impact on women because it gives them the opportunity to reclaim their figure once again.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover can vary, depending on what you are including in your surgery. During your consultation, we will work with you to create your treatment plan before your costs are estimated. A mommy makeover is an investment in reclaiming your confidence after pregnancy and childbirth so it's important to set your focus on choosing an experienced plastic surgeon whom you trust. Aesthetic Surgery Centre & MedSpa accepts many payment options, and we can help you with finding low-interest financing.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation, we will listen to your concerns and goals before examining your body. After this, we will use our years of expertise to make recommendations about what should be a part of your personalized surgical plan. Typically, women tend to select a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) with liposuction and a body lift.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on your body so nonsurgical treatments are usually not enough to achieve long-lasting improvements. During your consultation, a member of our team can explain both your surgical and nonsurgical options. Based on your needs and goals, we will let you know if treatments, like nonsurgical fat reduction, vaginal rejuvenation, or nonsurgical skin tightening, could be considered.
Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover can provide patients with a beautiful new shape, it does involve some scarring. Your surgeon will make small, clean incisions in well-hidden areas so that your scars are more easily concealed. Most scars that result from this procedure can be covered with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your recovery instructions, a member of our team will go over scar care so your stitches heal and fade smoothly.
What if I get pregnant again?
In a perfect world, you should wait to have a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so the surgical results are not compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. If you get pregnant after your mommy makeover, a second surgery can be performed to refresh your results.
