About the Mommy Makeover

Las Vegas, NV cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edward M. Zimmerman regularly consults with women who desire to get their pre-pregnancy physique back. While childbirth is an exciting and amazing moment for a woman, it inevitably will change the size and shape of certain body parts — and could leave one feeling a little frustrated. The most exciting news is that it's achievable to get a slim and taut appearance with the assistance of the mommy makeover procedure performed at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas by Dr. Z. The mommy makeover procedure uses a combination of liposuction and skin removal to reshape the abdomen and breasts, and other affected areas — essentially any body part affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding can be corrected. Furthermore, nonsurgical procedures can be incorporated to repair surface imperfections, such as hyperpigmentation and stretch marks that occurred during pregnancy.

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover procedure are females who have completed pregnancy and childbirth, and have tried to attain a slimmer, tighter figure through diet and exercise with little result. For so many new moms, surgical intervention is necessary to once again have their pre-pregnancy shape. If you are past childbearing and are feeling hopeless with the side effects remaining on your body, such as sagging breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of fat in the lower back, flanks, and buttocks, this procedure could be a great option for you. The overall goal of Dr. Z is to help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure so you can get back to living life without worry.

Surgical Technique

The mommy makeover procedure is a custom surgery, tailored for patients by cosmetic surgeon Dr. Z based on the areas of concern to be enhanced. A variety of procedures can be applied together — the most popular treatments are a breast lift with or without implants, abdominoplasty, and liposuction. All of these procedures are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours, depending on the complexity. In some cases, a day-long stay at the hospital may be required. It is common to also incorporate nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, such as an injection or a laser treatment, to smooth facial wrinkles and diminish surface irregularities.

What to Expect

Once leaving the hospital, you will start your recovery at home with rest and proper aftercare. The overall recovery is generally a slow process. Standing upright will be difficult the first couple of weeks, and a carefully followed, at-home treatment protocol will be adhered to in order to ensure the incisions heal properly. The majority of women find the healing process can last around six months. Even while the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to get back to a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Exercise should be held off for approximately two months. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas can make an incredible impact for women, creating a newfound love for their body.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs will vary, depending on which procedures are part of your surgical plan. During your consultation, Dr. Z will develop your treatment plan and then he will be able to discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is about rejuvenating your confidence after having children so it is best to concentrate on reaching your goals rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas takes several payment methods and we will give you information on finding low-interest financing to make your mommy makeover affordable.

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation with Dr. Z, he will understand your concerns and goals before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can give you suggestions on what to include in your surgical plan. Typically, women select a breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both), plus a tummy tuck and liposuction.

What about nonsurgical treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body, which is why nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to produce noticeable improvements. In your consultation, Dr. Z will explain both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. After listening to your concerns and goals, he will tell you if procedures, like nonsurgical liposuction (including Emsculpt), vaginal rejuvenation (like ThermiVa or FemTouch), or noninvasive skin tightening (for example, Profound or Vivace), may be helpful.

Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a rejuvenated figure, it does leave surgical scars. Dr. Z will make small, clean incisions. Most scars will be placed so they can be covered with swimsuits and underwear. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Z or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care so your stitches heal and fade.

What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete so your results aren't compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk for changing if you get pregnant again. Should you have another child after a mommy makeover, another surgery may be done to restore your results.
