Mommy MakeoverPerformed by Dr. Anna I. Wooten of Beleza Plastic Surgery
Childbearing and breastfeeding are incredibly rewarding stages of a woman’s life, however, these years can take a toll on your body. It’s not uncommon to develop stretch marks, skin laxity or to gain weight that is stubbornly resistant to exercise. Breasts can also lose volume and look deflated after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover can improve these unwelcome changes. Mommy makeovers include any combination of liposuction, abdominoplasty, breast augmentation and breast lifting to achieve fuller breasts and a more youthful silhouette.

Dana talks about her Mommy Makeover with Dr. Wooten. Her customized surgery combined the Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift procedures.
This patient’s Mommy Makeover consisted of a Lipoabdominoplasty (which is a Tummy Tuck and liposuction) combined with breast implants. Her beautiful result shows what a difference a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery can make. In one procedure, this patient went from a size 12 to a size 4, as shown on the right hand side, two years after her surgery.
This patient came to Dr. Wooten for a Mommy Makeover. In consultation, she and Dr. Wooten discussed the best routes for her desired result. This patient had a Tummy Tuck and a breast augmentation via fat transfer with a lift, and is pictured on the right two years after her procedure.
Multiple pregnancies left this patient with a hernia and sagging abdominal skin. She opted for a full mommy makeover, incorporating a tummy tuck and hernia repair with her breast lift with implants. Dr. Wooten placed 350 cc Mentor MemoryGel round silicone implants during her breast lift, and repaired her hernia during the tummy tuck, resulting in a much tighter silhouette, shown right.
Following the births of her children, this mother was unhappy with the way pregnancy had left her breasts and stomach. In her early thirties, she decided to take action and scheduled a consultation for a Mommy Makeover with Dr. Wooten. To achieve her aesthetic goals, this Mommy Makeover consisted of a Breast Lift and a Tummy Tuck. Her procedure went smoothly, and she was thrilled with her results.

Mommy Makeover Procedure
Mommy makeover procedures can include the following popular surgeries (as well as any other procedure of your choosing):
Mommy makeovers mean something different to each woman. Though the basic goal is the same (to restore the post-pregnancy body to its pre-pregnancy state), the route to accomplish this varies from patient to patient. Most mommy makeovers usually include a tummy tuck to tighten sagging skin and the overstretched muscles that accompany multiple pregnancies, along with some type of breast enhancement, be it an augmentation, reduction or lift, and may also include liposuction to contour certain areas.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Individuals recover at different rates. However, after most major surgeries, you will likely have to avoid strenuous physical activity for about 6 weeks. This includes common household chores like carrying groceries, as well as trips to the gym.
Specifically, with breast surgery, avoid lifting more than 5 pounds for 3-4 weeks. Following a tummy tuck, be sure to properly rest the abdomen. Don’t stretch, twist or aggressively engage your core for 4-6 weeks.
After your mommy makeover procedure, arrange for someone to help you at home. Having a friend or family member help to prepare meals, run errands, and perform other daily chores will allow you to properly focus on rest and recovery.
