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.

"Dr Ehret is a great physician and extremely great at his craft. I saw him(from a referral from another physician's office) to have a scar revision from an abdominoplasty (performed by another physician). My skin is prone to keloid and I had terrible keloids that were unsightly and painful. From day one he and his staff were very professional and friendly. He provided me with realistic expectations so that I could be clear that the surgery does not have a 100% success rate. I took my chances and followed all of his recommendations and I'm now 3 months post OP and so far so good. I'm still not completely out of the woods, but he has continued to follow my progress each month to decrease the potential of keloid reoccurrence at no additional cost! I booked my surgery with ease with no unexpected surprises! I really love his bedside manner. He's personable and friendly. If I had to have surgery again (hopefully, I won't require it) I'd definitely choose him and his team again!"- C.C. / Google / Oct 26, 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.
