Mommy Makeover Reviews
"I had a mommy makeover with Dr. Baughman about two weeks ago and so far I couldn’t be happier. He spent a lot of time talking to me to find out exactly what was important to me, and also used 3D photo modeling to help me see and understand my different options. He did everything possible to make sure I was going to be happy with my results and the process. It was nice to have surgery next-door to his office, making surgery day go smoothly I was back to work 4 days later. Highly recommend!"- J.S. / Google / Oct 27, 2019
"Dr. Baughman is an Amazing Doctor! - I am in my 50's and wanted to get a mommy makeover. During the consultation I felt at-ease with Dr. Baughman. He is a caring and personable doctor and informed me of what to expect. The 3D images of what my body would look like helped me to see the outcome, which was very exciting! Just before the surgery a couple of weeks ago I was met with a very friendly staff and a big, warm blanket. So nice!! After the surgery, Dr. Baughman took every measure to make sure I experienced as little discomfort as possible. He did an amazing job on the mommy makeover. I look forward to my next procedure. Thank you so much Dr. Baughman!"- W. / RealSelf / Mar 19, 2020
Once your family is complete, it may be time to give yourself a little attention with a mommy makeover. Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing can take a toll on your body, leaving you with loose skin, stubborn pockets of fat, and sagging breasts. You may have tried to improve your body with a healthy diet and exercise but with limited results. During your consultation, you should be open with Dr. Baughman about your concerns and goals so he can create your custom mommy makeover plan. Most often, a mommy makeover will include a tummy tuck, a breast lift, and liposuction.
A mommy makeover surgery is usually performed with general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours, depending on the complexity and treatment plan. Your mommy makeover will be tailored for your needs by plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Baughman based on your concerns. During your consultation, Dr. Baughman will explain the details of your surgery, including where incisions will be placed and whether you will need to stay overnight for professional care.
What to Expect
When you are cleared to leave, you will need to be prepared to rest and recover at home with the post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Baughman. Moving around and walking straight will be difficult the first week so you should plan to have help with small children. The majority of women are able to return to a somewhat normal routine within several weeks after their mommy makeover. It may take several months for your body to fully heal so you can see your results, but most women are very pleased with the appearance of their body after a mommy makeover.
Frequently Asked Questions
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, Dr. Baughman will develop your treatment plan and then he will be able to discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is about rejuvenating your body after having children so it is best to concentrate on getting amazing results rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. Ethan Baughman Plastic Surgery takes 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 with Dr. Baughman, he will listen to your wants and needs before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can give you suggestions on what to include in your treatment plan. Often, women want breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both) together with a tummy tuck and liposuction.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a rejuvenated figure, it does leave surgical scars. Dr. Baughman performs all his surgeries with clean, small incisions. Most scars will be placed so they can be hidden with swimsuits and underwear. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Baughman or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care so your sutures heal flat and eventually 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. All treated areas of your body are at risk for changing if you got pregnant again. Should you have another child after a mommy makeover, another surgery may be done to restore your results.
