Rediscover Your Confidence 

While children are a blessing and bring enormous joy, sometimes the changes to the female physique leave a mother wishing for enhancements for their figure. Mommy makeover procedures work together to help you feel and look your best after your family is complete and you’re ready to take care of those areas that you know could be quickly and significantly improved with the correct procedure.

A mommy makeover typically targets the primary problem spots that women feel frustrated by after pregnancy, nursing, and even after they’ve lost their baby weight.

Some of these after-effects can be, but are not limited to:

  • Stretched-out belly skin and musculature
  • Breasts that have lost firmness or hang low, sometimes with fatty deposits
  • The desire to achieve a ‘more-lifted’ and youthful look in general

Of the women that have taken the step to improve their physicality after childbirth and nursing, polls show that mommy makeovers have had a success rate of 94%. This is an impressive number—showing that light scarring and minimal overall downtime have proven more than satisfactory for most women who undergo the procedure.

Preparing For Your Mommy Makeover

As the date for your mommy makeover gets closer, Dr. Meade may request specific lab tests or medical evaluations to give you the best possible care. So you may enjoy the most positive and pleasing outcome from your procedure. He may also take pre-makeover photos for documentation purposes. 

These requests can include the following:

  • A mammogram for women over the age of 35
  • That you cease or make adjustments to any medications, vitamins, or supplements, you’re currently taking 
  • That you avoid the consumption of alcohol and drugs and, if relevant, abstain from smoking for a certain amount of time before and after surgery as well
  • That you make sure you are very well hydrated, especially on the days just before your procedure

The Mommy Makeover Procedure

Most mommy makeovers are performed as an outpatient procedure under intravenous or general anesthesia. The specific surgical process Dr. Meade follows will depend on which methods will be included. 

Typically, a mommy makeover includes some form of breast surgery and a tummy tuck to rejuvenate the body areas most impacted by motherhood. This also might be a good time to address any issues you might have outside the normal scope of the mommy makeover, making the overall experience more effective in terms of cost, time, and energy invested.

Some of the most popular mommy makeover procedures include the following:

Breast Enhancement

Increase your cup size with breast implants, choose a breast lift to reshape and firm your natural breast tissue for a perkier profile, or go for a breast reduction if your breasts feel too large for your frame.

Facial Rejuvenation

Both surgical and non-surgical treatments can help you look younger and more refreshed. This includes BOTOX and dermal fillers.

Tummy Tuck

Eliminates excess skin and tissue while repairing separated or lax abdominal muscles.


Improves problem spots that don’t respond to diet and exercise.

Because the primary goal is to bring out the very best in your body, the answer to what will achieve that goal is different for every woman.

Lose Up to Two Sizes With a Mommy Makeover

Most women can expect to go down 1 or 2 sizes after skin tightening and fat removal, while others may drop more. Remember that Dr. Meade focuses more on patient safety and comfort than trying to achieve unrealistic results or specific pant sizes.

When you’re ready to know more about how a mommy makeover could elevate and enhance your appearance, contact us online or call us at 214.823.1691. We’ll be more than happy to answer any questions and schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Meade. 

Recovery From Your Mommy Makeover

Your recovery experience is an individualized process impacted by which surgeries were performed, as well as your body’s natural healing response. However, the recovery time for a mommy makeover surgery is typically between 4 to 6 weeks.

Most women feel comfortable enough after surgery that they don’t even finish a prescription of 40 pain pills. While following Dr. Meade’s post-surgical instructions is vital to avoid complications, most women return to their regular daily routine relatively quickly after a makeover procedure.

Your Mommy Makeover Results

Expect to see a curvier, sexier you almost immediately after your mommy makeover, with results becoming more visible as your healing progresses. Your final profile should reflect an improvement in even your pre-pregnancy body concerns, such as a firmer, flatter belly, enhanced bust line, and excess weight loss.
