What is a Mommy Makeover?
As a mother, you devote so much time and energy to your kids and family that it’s easy to forget about yourself. The Mommy Makeover at Partington Plastic Surgery Center is designed to let you reclaim your body after childbearing with a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures carefully selected to target your areas of need and satisfy your personal desires.
There is no denying that a woman’s body goes through significant changes during pregnancies and childbirth. These changes may include drooping or deflated breasts, a protruding abdomen, stubborn deposits of fat, loose skin, and stretch marks. Cosmetic surgery options at our practice include breast enhancement, liposuction, tummy tuck, and facial rejuvenation.

Diet and exercise can help to get you back into shape after pregnancy but are often not enough. That’s why Mommy Makeovers are a growing trend in cosmetic surgery to counteract the undesirable physical effects of childbearing and help you regain your youthful figure.
Mommy Makeover FAQ’s
How long does it take to recovery from a Mommy Makeover?
The recovery from your mommy makeover will vary depending on the procedures that you choose to undergo. Recovery can take anywhere from two to four weeks. Most patients are able to return to work a week after their procedure. Dr. Partington will go over the recovery process with you in detail to make sure that you are fully prepared.
How much weight do you lose with a Mommy Makeover?
The mommy makeover is not a weight loss procedure. Instead, it is a series of body contouring procedures to help you reach your aesthetic goals after you are at a healthy weight. Losing some weight is a side effect of the procedure but is not a main goal.
Do I need to lose weight before a Mommy Makeover?
In order to get the mommy makeover procedure, it is important that patients are at a healthy and stable weight. It is recommended to be no more than 25 pounds over your goal weight before surgery.
How do you prepare for a Mommy Makeover?
Dr. Partington will tell you how to be prepared for your mommy makeover during your consultation. Patients who smoke will need to quit smoking before they can get this procedure. Also, patients may need to adjust their medications and avoid taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs prior to the surgery.
Do you lose weight after a Mommy Makeover?
Because fat and excess skin are removed through a mommy makeover, you may lose some weight as a result. However, weight loss is not the intended goal for a mommy makeover.
