"I had the pleasure to have chosen him for my mommy makeover. I was very picky and questioned everything after surgery. I must say he won me over right away. He answered all my questions and listened to my concerns no matter how foolish they seemed and never made me feel uncomfortable for asking. He took his time to explain everything in a way I could understand it. I communicated by text with him in case I had concerns before my appointments. HE ALWAYS TEXT BACK! How awesome is that! I can't imagine going to someone who just takes your money and is done with you! Its happening to so many girls going outside the country and they are left all alone with no support from them. Save up if you have to and go to him! His with you 100% of the way! I would go to him again except he won't be practicing here anymore. It would of been nice to see his face too, ( I hear he has a nice smile ) but he always wore his mask. I can't wait to see my end results I'm sure they will be just what I wanted. Thank you Dr. Boughman!"- A.C. / Google / Jun 03, 2021

"I am now 4 months out from having a breast reduction and lift along with lipo on my stomach and lift. I could not be happier with the results! I tried losing weight and toning by going to a fitness camp and then working with a personal trainer...but losing only 1 pound made me realize sometimes as we get older, we need help from other sources to give us that leg up. I am a 56 year old woman and I regret not doing it sooner! But then again, maybe not because I don't know if I would have had the option of Dr. Baughman. I cannot tell you how great my breasts (reduced to a size C) and stomach, and waist look (went from size 16 to 12). All along the way, Dr. Baughman was kind, patient, caring, and most importantly...responsive to all my questions. I just cannot say enough about the great work and wonderful person that Dr. Baughman is. He did a great job in minimilizing my scarring which was my biggest concern. I can't wait to go back for my neck procedure! On a side note...Dr. Baughman also provided me with the recommendation of hiring a nurse to take care of me in my home. Her name was Kelly Graytok. I am so grateful for Dr. Baughman considering all my needs even after leaving the hospital. Kelly was fabulous and worth the price to ensure that all the great work Dr. Baughman did was cared for during the first 24 hours to give me the best possible recovery experience. Bottom line, I would highly recommend Dr. Baughman!!!"- D.W. / Google / Jan 15, 2022
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.
