What is a Mommy Makeover?
Board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin regularly work with women who wish to have their pre-pregnancy figure back. While childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment in a woman’s life, it can change the size and shape of various body parts and could leave one feeling frustrated as a result. The great news is that it's possible to reclaim a slimmer, smoother physique, thanks to the mommy makeover surgery performed at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL. This body contouring treatment uses a blend of liposuction and skin removal to target the breasts, tummy, and lower body. Essentially, any area affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding can be addressed. Furthermore, nonsurgical remedies can be used to repair surface imperfections, such as hyperpigmentation and discoloration, from the quick fluctuation and stretching of the tissue and skin during pregnancy.

HOW IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER DONE?
The right candidates for this surgery are those who have gone through childbearing and have worked to attain a slimmer, tighter figure through a clean diet with little result. For so many new moms, surgical intervention is needed to attain their pre-pregnancy shape. If you are finished childbearing, but you are unhappy with the imperfections left behind, such as lifeless, deflated breasts, loose abdominal skin, or undesirable areas of fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, this procedure could be perfect for you. Many treatments can be considered together, and the most popular treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. The mommy makeover surgery is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours based upon the complexity. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, such as injectables or laser treatments, to smooth facial wrinkles and diminish surface imperfections.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin will listen to your needs and concerns before examining your body. After this, they can make recommendations on what to include in your mommy makeover. Typically, women select a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift), plus a tummy tuck and liposuction.
Will I have scars after a mommy makeover?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a beautiful new figure, it does leave some scarring. Our physicians will make clean incisions that are as small as possible. Most scars will be placed so they can be concealed with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your post-surgical care instructions, a member of our team will go over scar care so your incisions heal flat and eventually fade.
What if I get pregnant again after a mommy makeover procedure?
Ideally, you should wait to have a mommy makeover until your family is complete so the surgical results aren't compromised. Generally, all treated areas of your body are at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. Should you get pregnant after your mommy makeover, a second surgery can be performed to restore your results.
