Mommy Makeover Q & A

by Thomas McHugh, MD

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan that restores your body to its pre-pregnancy status, reducing, or even eliminating, the impact that pregnancy had on your shape. Using a variety of procedures, Dr. McHugh can address issues around your:

  • Abdomen
  • Breasts
  • Waist
  • Genitalia
  • Buttocks

With a mommy makeover, Dr. McHugh addresses sagging breasts, excess fat, and stretched loose skin, making you look and feel better.

To be considered for a mommy makeover, you must be:

  • In good health
  • At an ideal weight
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Done having children

What Does A Mommy Makeover Consist Of?

Mommy makeovers include a wide variety of surgeries and procedures. Some of the most common include:

  • Breast Augmentation: With a breast augmentation, Dr. McHugh enhances the size, shape, and symmetry of your breasts. Both saline and silicone implants are available.
  • Liposuction: If you have stubborn fat in your abdomen, hips, buttocks, or thighs, Dr. McHugh can remove it with liposuction, giving you a smoother, more contoured silhouette.
  • Tummy TuckIf you have excess skin around your abdomen, Dr. McHugh may perform a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, as part of your mommy makeover. Doing so tightens the muscles and smooths skin across your stomach, improving your body’s contours.

If possible, Dr. McHugh performs a mommy makeover with a single-stage procedure.

How Long is Your Recovery After A Mommy Makeover?

Since each mommy makeover is a highly individualized procedure, there’s no set timeframe for your full recovery. For most patients, it can take several weeks for the body to heal and for swelling to reduce.

You may return home with bandages on your incisions, and you may have to wear a supportive bra to stabilize and secure your breasts. In some cases, a compression garment may be necessary around the abdomen, buttocks, or waist. Some people may have drains placed to allow excess fluid to drain.

During your consultation, Dr. McHugh discusses how to care for your incisions and any restrictions you may have.
