Learn why mothers in New Orleans and Metairie, LA, come to Northshore Plastic Surgery for comprehensive makeovers.
What Does a Mommy Makeover Involve?
Pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing can have lasting effects on your physique. Even with regular exercise and a healthy diet, many mothers find it difficult to return to their pre-pregnancy figures.
A mommy makeover is a customized treatment plan that combines multiple cosmetic surgery procedures. The results of surgery can help mothers feel more confident about their appearance.
The four most common mommy makeover procedures include:
Mommy Makeover Benefits
A mommy makeover can enhance the way you look and feel. Mommy makeover surgery can tighten sagging skin, smooth away stretch marks, and improve the firmness and contour of a woman's figure. In addition to achieving a more youthful appearance, many mothers feel more confident after the treatment restores their pre-pregnancy bodies.

Am I a Mommy Makeover Candidate? You should consider post-pregnancy surgery if you experience:
Changes in Nipple AppearanceYour nipples may appear stretched or downturned from breastfeeding and pumping. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can rejuvenate and reposition the nipple during breast enhancement.
Abdominal Stretch Marks and SaggingLoose skin and stretch marks are common, given the expansion of the abdomen during pregnancy. A tummy tuck can tighten the skin and restore tone to the abdominal area.
Unwanted Deposits of FatFat can accumulate in different parts of the body and may be resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction removes these pockets of fat for a better body contour.
When to Get Surgery
Timing is key with mommy makeovers. It's best to wait at least one year after you've had your last child before undergoing surgery. At this time, breastfeeding will have ended or will end soon and you will have had some time to resume a normal diet and physical activity. You should also feel certain that you do not wish to have more children since a subsequent pregnancy can counteract the results of your procedures.
How Much Does It Cost?
Mommy makeover cost varies based on the surgeries needed and the patient's cosmetic goals. We can provide a full price breakdown during your consultation, though you can rest assured that our prices are competitive for the New Orleans area. We never want cost to be a barrier between you and the treatment you desire. To make mommy makeovers more affordable, Northshore Plastic Surgery accepts CareCredit® financing.

After your mommy makeover, we will provide you with a detailed list of post-surgical instructions. When followed closely, these guidelines will help you enjoy a swift, comfortable, and successful recovery.
Why Combine Multiple Surgeries?
Combining multiple procedures into one comprehensive treatment plan has several advantages over getting each surgery on its own. You can achieve your results faster through this approach since time spent in surgery and recovery can be consolidated. This approach also maximizes your plastic surgery budget by reducing overall treatment costs at our New Orleans area cosmetic surgery center.
Mommy Makeover Recovery Explore the Healing Process
Immediately After Surgery
Immediately after your mommy makeover procedure, surgical dressings will be applied. We will likely provide you with compression garments that will help support healing tissues and reduce swelling.
Post-Op Side Effects
Mommy makeover patients can expect to experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. These side effects are temporary and can be mitigated with prescription medications and over-the-counter pain relievers. Swelling may linger for several weeks but will subside slowly over time.
How Long Does Healing Take?
Your total recovery time will depend on the procedures performed and your natural healing capacity. While liposuction recovery may only take a couple of weeks, it could take months to heal from a tummy tuck. During your consultation at our New Orleans area practice, our plastic surgeons can give you an estimated recovery timeline.
Scarring After Surgery
Scars are common after a mommy makeover, given the procedures involved. Liposuction has minimal scarring since the incisions are small, while a tummy tuck or breast augmentation will leave some visible scarring around the abdomen and breasts. Our surgeons always strive to keep incisions as well hidden as possible. Over time, as your incisions heal, the surgical scars will fade. Thankfully, many undergarments, bathing suits, and tops can conceal the scars from a mommy makeover.
