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.

What Are The Benefits Of A Mommy Makeover?

Reclaim and upgrade your figure with a personalized mommy makeover designed by Dr. Caplin or Dr. Nuveen, offering benefits like:

  • Addressing multiple body concerns
  • Tightening loose, sagging skin
  • Lifting, enhancing, and restoring the breasts
  • Reducing problem fat
  • Diminishing stretch marks
  • Slimming, toning, and contouring the body
  • Boosting self-image and confidence

Am I A Good Candidate For A Mommy Makeover?

Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover are women who have undergone pregnancy and childbirth, and have worked to attain a slimmer look through a clean diet and consistent exercise with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgical intervention is necessary to regain their pre-pregnancy body. If you have completed childbearing but you are frustrated with the effects left behind, such as sagging breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or unwanted fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, this procedure could help you. Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin want to help you regain your pre-pregnancy shape so you can get back to living life without additional concerns about your body.


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.

What Can I Expect After a Mommy Makeover?

Once leaving the hospital, you will start your recovery at home with rest. Recovery from a mommy makeover is generally a gradual process. Standing upright will be hard the first few days, and a carefully followed, home treatment protocol will be needed to help the incisions and sutures heal properly. Most women find the healing phase can take about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients are able to get back to a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Working out should wait for about two months. In the end, this surgery can be an amazing journey for women, helping them reclaim their figure once again.

Mommy Makeover FAQ

Can a mommy makeover be customized to individual needs?
Yes, a mommy makeover is highly customizable. The specific procedures included in the makeover are tailored to address the individual's unique concerns, goals, and areas of the body affected by pregnancy.

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.

How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover can vary greatly depending on which procedures are part of your surgical plan. During your consultation, our team will create your treatment plan before we can discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is an investment in rejuvenating your body and confidence after pregnancy and childbirth, so it's important to focus on getting amazing results instead of the cheapest surgeon. Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates accepts several payment options, and we give you information on finding low-interest medical financing so your mommy makeover is easy to afford.

Is there a specific recovery period for a mommy makeover?
The recovery period for a mommy makeover depends on the combination of procedures performed. Generally, patients can expect downtime ranging from a few days to a few weeks. Following post-operative care provided by our team at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates is crucial for a smooth recovery.
