Mom holding baby and doing yoga at homeSure, celebrities talk about how their bodies "bounce back" after pregnancy and re-committing to fitness. But what about the rest of us? After having a baby, you may notice that the skin is not completely returning to normal despite efforts like crunches, running, weight lifting, dieting, etc. To smooth out stubborn bumps, bulges and puffy skin, the plastic surgery approach known as a mommy makeover may be called for.

We've provided some general information below. For more details, please call Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center in Las Vegas at 702-260-7707.

What is it?

A mommy makeover generally refers to a customized set of plastic surgery procedures. The exact procedures included depend on your goals and desired results. Because pregnancy changes the appearance of the breasts, belly, arms, thighs and buttocks, these are some of the most common treatment areas. But a mommy makeover will treat virtually any area of your body that you want to improve.

Length of the Recovery

As a mom, you don't get a lot of time for yourself. Many women interested in cosmetic surgery who come to Dr. Hayley Brown for a consultation express concern about recovery time. Sometimes it can be difficult to find a spare hour to yourself in a day, let alone weeks to recover. Fortunately, we can help you plan these types of logistics.

The length of downtime depends on which procedures you choose. You may need to stay home from work for a week or two. You will need to take time off from intensive exercise for a few weeks or longer. For the first day or so, you will need a spouse or family member to help with childcare, meals, errands and household chores. Once we learn more about you, we can give you exact timelines so that you can plan accordingly.

What It Restores

After pregnancy and childbirth, you may be interested in cosmetic surgery to address the following:

There is a wide array of procedures targeted at these physical changes. For the very best results, you should be at or near your ideal weight and fitness level. If you plan to lose a lot more weight and get the procedures now, you may find that the results are no longer matched to your current body shape later on. Talk to Dr. Brown about whether you are ready now.

Cosmetic surgery is an effective way to reconstruct aspects of your pre-baby body, but also to enjoy a body shape that is perhaps tighter and better defined than you had before. Dr. Brown's goal is to help you look and feel your best. She does so by getting to know you and what changes you'd like to see. She tailors her recommendations to you as an individual.

Having Another Baby after a Mom Makeover

Yes, you can have more children after cosmetic surgery. These procedures will not prevent or otherwise interfere with pregnancy. Here's the only catch: Another pregnancy could change the results you receive from a mommy makeover. So you could see a return to saggy skin, lumps and bumps. But that doesn't mean you necessarily have to delay surgery until you plan for no more children. Dr. Brown will give you the details you need to make an informed decision about timing.

More than one-hundred thousand people underwent liposuction in 2017, the latest year statistics are available from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This procedure removes excess fat cells in a targeted area. Liposuction makes the treatment area smoother and tighter. It is especially beneficial for women following pregnancy. Pregnancy tends to lead to (in addition to a new bundle of joy!) extra fat in the belly, thighs, back, arms and elsewhere. You may find that you can't get rid of the fat, no matter how many crunches you do.

We offer new and seasoned moms the opportunity to turn flab into fab and help improve your overall sense of self.

It is no mystery that post-pregnancy blues are mostly due to the extreme physical changes that occur during pregnancy and childbirth. Stretch marks, cellulite, sagging skin and even some seriously tired raccoon eyes, are all a part of the gig. But you don’t have to lose your sexy just because you decided to enter into motherhood.

There is a wide variety of cosmetic surgery and body sculpting solutions that restore the shape and contours of your pre-baby body.

The Mommy Makeover Procedure

Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center in Las Vegas understands that you want to look your best. Having a baby can drastically change the form and firmness of your breasts, as well as negatively transforming your tummy area.

Instead of having to go to several different cosmetic surgery clinics to get back into the body you once had, why not come to an award-winning plastic surgery center that offers you everything under one roof? Our mommy makeover combines multiple cosmetic procedures into one operation. This offers busy moms the opportunity to enjoy minimal downtime and the chance to recover from a full body revamp all at once.

After an initial cosmetic consultation and assessment, we carefully tailor a 360 degree mommy makeover package that suits your needs and goals. A mommy makeover is a customized combination of treatments. Some of the typical procedures include:

What Makes You a Great Candidate?

But it's also okay to have a makeover now, even if you think you may have more kids down the road.

Areas of Your Face

The contour of your face and neck can be sculpted with liposuction. These are the main treatment areas:

  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Jaw line
  • Lower face

These delicate areas can be treated quite effectively with liposuction. Double chins, fatty necks and poorly defined jaw lines can be treated with this procedure in many cases. Dr. Brown creates incisions carefully, in a way that they are well-hidden and as minimal as possible. The fat is broken up and suctioned away. The removed fat cells are gone for good.

Areas of Your Body

The body areas treatable with liposuction include:

  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Breasts
  • Waist
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Inner knees
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks

Liposuction is great for reducing fat in all those areas that society has lovingly nicknamed: bra rolls, banana rolls, muffin tops and love handles! Although it is still possible to gain weight after the procedure, the removed cells are gone permanently. Most people feel even more motivated to pursue a healthy lifestyle, fitness and a stable weight once they see their results.

Who Gets Liposuction?

Father with dad bod working out before liposuction sculpting-Men, women, moms, dads, brides-to-be, single people, married people – liposuction demographics run the gamut. One of the most interesting points is that both men and women get liposuction. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2017 there were 218,174 women who underwent liposuction. Women did make up 89 percent of lipo patients that year. But men sought the procedure as well, with 28,180 males opting for this body-shaping technique last year. Men made up 11 percent of total liposuction procedures.

Moms interested in sculpting their contours post-baby are also often the guests interested in liposuction. After pregnancy, you may have lost weight but find that some of the fat still lingers no matter how many crunches you do. With liposuction, you can get rid of these fat cells and smooth out those bulges.

Schedule Your Consultation with Dr. Brown

The next step in the process is to find out if you are a good candidate for liposuction. To do this, Dr. Brown will discuss your goals with you and perform an examination of the intended treatment area. Once she examines the fat in that area, she will know whether liposuction is appropriate. It is most suitable for people who are already at or near their ideal weight, but have isolated, persistent fat that remains. To schedule your consultation in the Las Vegas area, please call Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center at 702-260-7707.

Active mom and daughter following mother's cosmetic makeover in Las VegasAs a mom considering a body makeover, you may have lots of questions. Board-certified plastic surgeon, and mother to 4 children herself, Dr. Hayley Brown can answer all of your questions and discuss any concerns you may have. To contact our office in Henderson, please call 702-260-7707. Dr. Brown founded Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center in 2000, and she has been helping people restore and rejuvenate their bodies ever since.

Below are some of the most common questions regarding this procedure. This list certainly is not exhaustive and we encourage you to give us a call for more information.

Should I wait until I don't plan for any more kids?

The best results are achieved when a woman does not plan to have more children; however, you can certainly have more kids after a mommy makeover. The primary consideration is how pregnancy affects your results. If you become pregnant, you may find your tummy and breast results will revert to some degree, similar to before your mommy makeover.

Having said that, many women have more children after their mommy makeovers. It is one important factor that Dr. Brown will help you consider. If you choose not to have a full makeover now, there may be certain procedures that will still work well for you.

If I do become pregnant after a mommy makeover, will I be able to breastfeed?

Breast enhancement as part of a mommy makeover in Henderson NVYou may be concerned about breastfeeding any future children if you elect breast procedures. The vast majority of women are able to breastfeed after augmentation, breast lifts or breast reductions. There is a slight risk that certain incisions near the nipple could interfere with breastfeeding, but this tends not to be significant risk. Some women are unable to breastfeed altogether, regardless of plastic surgery. Depending on your plans for more children, Dr. Brown will help you decide if a breast procedure may be right for you, right now.

Which procedures should I choose?

The most common approach is to include some combination of breast enhancement, tummy tuck and liposuction. But the exact combination will be tailored to your unique goals. Dr. Brown has been performing mommy makeovers for nearly two decades. She has the experience and knowledge to help you choose the cosmetic treatments that match your goals. She is personally committed to helping her patients restore their confidence in their bodies.

How long before I can get back to my routine?

Cosmetic surgery does require some time off from work, running errands, and getting the kids to and from activities. It is very helpful to arrange for a spouse, parent or other family member or friend to help out with some of these things. Dr. Brown will discuss specific timelines with you as you decide which procedures you want. Some require as little as a week of downtime, while others may require a few weeks.

How much will it cost?

Each procedure has different pricing. Please visit our pricing page, and arrange a consultation to get a personalized quote. We also offer financing options.

Things to Know Beforehand

Las Vegas mommy makeoverHoping for an honest, clear picture of the procedure before you decide whether to have a mommy makeover? Rely on Dr. Brown and our team. When you visit for a consultation, we'll make sure you get all the information you need in order to make a decision.

Here are some things you may want to know:

  • It's okay to put yourself first. As a mom, you probably don't often put your own needs first. Maybe never! A mommy makeover can feel self-centered to some moms at first, but it's important to realize that your needs and wishes matter. Feeling good about yourself allows you to be the best version of yourself.
  • Your shape will continue to improve as swelling subsides. Especially for a tummy tuck and breast augmentation, you may at first be surprised by the amount of swelling after surgery. Swelling is completely normal and expected. You will see your new shape take form over several weeks as the swelling subsides.
  • Fitness can aid your recovery. A healthy lifestyle can help your body heal after surgery. A mommy makeover pairs well with an active lifestyle because it eliminates sagging and pockets of fat that exercise cannot change. It will also help to be as close as possible to your ideal weight before surgery. The procedures themselves are not a way to lose weight, but instead a way to refine certain areas of the body.
  • The results may look pre-baby, or even better! A mommy makeover isn't so much about making you look exactly as you did before you were a mother as it is about providing a way to look and feel like the best version of yourself. Your procedures will be carefully tailored to the look you want. You deserve to feel rejuvenated, refreshed and confident because of the mommy makeover.

If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to give us a call. We may be able to answer many of your questions over the phone, or we can arrange a consultation for you.

Tips for a Successful Recovery

Immediately after surgery you should get up and walk around periodically, about every 3 hours or so. You'll have to take time off from most other exercise for about 4-6 weeks, which Dr. Brown will discuss with you in further detail. Here are some things you can do to prepare for the day of surgery:

  • Make sure there aren't any chores, errands or tasks waiting for you at home. It could take up to two weeks to feel fully back to normal.
  • Rely on spousal and/or family support to help with children. For the first few days at least, you shouldn't be driving your children to and from school, preparing meals or otherwise performing the main childcare responsibilities. A spouse or family member is very helpful during this time to take over those responsibilities.
  • Create a pleasant place to relax before your surgical appointment. You should have a comfortable place to rest after your procedure. You may want to prep the area with pillows, books, movies or other things that will help you relax. Many women sleep in a reclining chair after a mommy makeover, because the recliner allows you to keep tension off of any abdominal sutures.

Our team will be available to address any concerns or questions you have after surgery, and before.

Common Questions About Mommy Makeovers

Mommy makeover patient Las VegasYou may have questions. We hope you will call Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center for answers. We may be able to answer your questions over the phone, and we can also arrange a consultation for you with Dr. Brown. Here are some common questions:

How much will it cost? The cost of the procedure varies. It depends on which breast and body surgeries are incorporated. To get a custom estimate, please arrange a consultation with Dr. Brown. Our office will describe cost as well as financing options.

Can I still have children? Yes, none of the procedures will prevent you from getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy; however, you may want to wait until you are not planning for any more children. The reason has to do with your results. If you have more children, the pregnancies will likely change the results of your body and breast procedures. But the choice is ultimately yours, and Dr. Brown will be able to help you decide.

Is it completed in a single appointment? Most often, yes. In some cases, multiple surgeries may be scheduled. But it's ideal to have everything completed in a single appointment.

Will there be scars? Yes, all cosmetic surgeries leave scars. Dr. Brown prioritizes minimal incisions placed in the most inconspicuous areas possible. Your scars will also lighten in color and flatten out about a year or so after surgery. Depending on the procedures, your scars should be in areas that are easily concealed with clothing, swimsuits and undergarments.

When can I get back to the gym (or back to my chosen physical activities)? It depends on the type of physical exertion. In general, most activity needs to be delayed for 4-6 weeks to let your body heal. But walking around is certainly required immediately after surgery and in the weeks following. Dr. Brown and our team will let you know how you can gradually resume intensive physical activity.

Las Vegas mommy makeoverA mommy makeover is an effective solution to help you restore your body to its pre-pregnancy figure. If you're considering a mommy makeover, you may be wondering how long you should wait after giving birth before undergoing this life-changing procedure. Unfortunately, there's no black-and-white answer to this question.

Las Vegas mommy makeoverA mommy makeover is an effective solution to help you restore your body to its pre-pregnancy figure. If you're considering a mommy makeover, you may be wondering how long you should wait after giving birth before undergoing this life-changing procedure. Unfortunately, there's no black-and-white answer to this question. The right time for you will be based on you unique personal circumstances.

That being said, there are certain factors that you should evaluate when deciding if you're ready to get a mommy makeover. These include:

  • How long it takes you to recover from childbirth
  • How you're impacted by the rigors of motherhood
  • Future family plans

After giving birth, your body will need some time to recover from the transformations that occur throughout your pregnancy. Your breasts and abdomen will gradually contract back towards your pre-pregnancy state for the first few months after childbirth. You'll want to give your body time to complete this transformation in order for Dr. Brown to devise a customized mommy makeover plan that will address your unique needs and goals.

It's also important to understand that if you choose to breastfeed, your breasts will remain enlarged during this time. Therefore, you'll need to wait until your child is no longer breastfeeding to undergo the procedure.

While you may want to undergo your mommy makeover as soon as possible, you should also consider how this will impact your ability to handle raising a baby. Taking care of a very young child can be physically demanding. You may find that it will be hard to physically meet the needs of your baby while you're recovering from surgery. For this reason, you may want to wait until your child is a little older before undergoing the procedure.

Finally, it's important to consider future family plans when deciding on the timing of your mommy makeover. If you're planning on having more children, you'll want to wait to undergo the procedure since future pregnancies can potentially have a negative impact on your results. In order to achieve beautiful mommy makeover results that will last for years to come, it's best to wait until you're done having children.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Brown will discuss these factors with you as well as any other questions you may have regarding the right time to undergo your mommy makeover. As a mother of four children, Dr. Brown understands the issues you need to consider when making this decision, and she will make sure the timing is right before you undergo your procedure.
