All About Our Customizable Mommy Makeover

By Dr. Marshall T. Partington on June 08, 2023 in Mommy Makeover

If you’ve been doing your research about the mommy makeover, you might encounter any number of combinations for this suite of plastic surgery procedures. That’s because the mommy makeover is one of the most customizable options available and no two procedures are alike. In fact, one of the first questions we ask mommy makeover patients is: what does a mommy makeover mean to you? If you haven’t thought about this question yet, it’s a great exercise in determining which procedures you want to include and what you want your makeover to look like. Here’s a quick guide to our customizable mommy makeover and how you can get started on putting together your tailor-made surgery.

What is a Mommy Makeover at Partington Plastic Surgery?

The mommy makeover isn’t a specific procedure, but rather a package of plastic surgery procedures that are performed together in a single session. The biggest benefit of this is it allows unparalleled customization for each patient, as well as reduced downtime and costs when you combine procedures together. Your mommy makeover can include any combination of the following:

Some of the most common concerns addressed by a mommy makeover include stubborn fat, stretched skin, loose muscles, stretch marks, and more. During a consultation at Partington Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, the ideal combination of procedures for you will be thoroughly discussed.

Who Is a Candidate for A Mommy Makeover?

Because the mommy makeover includes multiple procedures at once, it’s important to determine if you’re a good candidate, which will be accomplished during a qualitative consult.

You’re Fully Recovered from Childbirth

Moms of all life stages can benefit from a mommy makeover, but if you’ve recently given birth, it’s best for your health to wait before undergoing surgery. As a general rule, it should be at least six months since giving birth and you should be finished breastfeeding. This gives your body a chance to recover and return to a more normal state.

You Don’t Have Any Further Plans for Children

In order to get the most out of your mommy makeover results, it’s best to be finished having children before going through with surgery. Additional pregnancies can reverse your results and potentially require another procedure down the road. If you’re between pregnancies, our Master Aesthetician can help you explore non-surgical alternatives and laser treatments in the meantime. This may include technologies designed to tighten skin and get rid of stretch marks, as well as non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation.

You Can Take Time to Recover

Moms can have some of the busiest schedules of all, meaning it’s hard for some moms to take time to recover after surgery. Generally, a mommy makeover can require 2-3 weeks of dedicated rest and recovery, during which you’ll need to avoid elevating your heart rate or lifting heavy objects (including picking up kids or pets). A trusted friend, loved one, or adult family member can be of support during your initial healing time. Some surgical options like the Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation are designed to help you return to your daily schedule faster (without the use of narcotics) and can be discussed with our team if you have specific recovery time needs.

Results to Expect from a Mommy Makeover

One of the biggest benefits of the mommy makeover is that, with the right lifestyle habits, you can enjoy your results for years to come. Depending on your unique procedures, you can enjoy a trimmer stomach, rejuvenated breasts, tighter and more youthful skin, and an overall boosted figure. The goal of the mommy makeover is to return your body to its pre-baby state so that you can feel confident in every situation. With the expertise of our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Partington and our Master Aesthetician, you can achieve the best results available in the greater Seattle area.
