Mommy Makeovers Are Transformative An Actual Patient's Results
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures that target the breasts, tummy, and other parts of the body affected by pregnancy and childbirth. The goal is to restore a woman's appearance so she looks like she did before having kids–or even better. After surgery, many mothers have perkier breasts, a firmer stomach, and enhanced self-confidence.
Fully Customized to the Patient
Since no two mothers are alike, every mommy makeover is individualized to the patient. Dr. Lowe will discuss your concerns and your cosmetic goals in great detail. He will work with you to develop a custom treatment plan, covering the risks and benefits of each procedure, and even suggesting alternatives that may be better for your needs.

A Total Makeover and a Major Difference Helping Mommy Makeover Patients Just Like You
Common Mommy Makeover Procedures
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure that tightens weakened abdominal muscles and removes excess skin. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with liposuction as a highly effective way to achieve a flat, toned midsection. It is one of the most common mommy makeover procedures.
A supplement to many body contouring and tuck procedures, liposuction removes unwanted pockets of body fat. In addition to targeting stubborn belly fat after childbirth, some women opt to have liposuction performed on the arms, thighs, hips, flanks, neck, and other areas of the body that are prone to weight gain during pregnancy.
Think of a body lift as a tuck that covers more than just the tummy. A total body lift combines multiple body contouring surgeries with liposuction to achieve a much slimmer and better toned appearance. A total body lift is particularly effective for women whose bodies have changed significantly from the weight fluctuations of pregnancy and childbirth.
Pregnancy and nursing can alter the size and shape of a woman's breasts. Women who have lost significant breast volume can improve the size, symmetry, projection, and firmness of their chest with breast augmentation and silicone or saline implants.
Breastfeeding typically results in sagging and a loss of volume of the upper chest area. A breast lift (mastopexy) repositions the breast tissue and nipple higher on the chest mound, while also removing excess tissue and skin. This procedure can make the breasts perkier and more youthful-looking. Sometimes a breast lift proves more effective for a patient's needs than breast augmentation.
Some women who experience sagging after breastfeeding want to add lost volume to their bustline while also improving the perkiness and shape of their breasts. These patients often choose a combined breast lift with augmentation. This surgery involves similar incisions as a breast lift to make the breasts perkier while placing silicone or saline implants to increase the size of the breasts.

Mommy Makeover Recovery
Taking Time Off to Heal
Full recovery from a mommy makeover will take a few weeks. Around two weeks after their tummy tuck and breast surgeries, mommy makeover patients should be able to return to work and then gradually ease back into other normal daily activities. We work with patients to schedule their mommy makeover at a time that makes the most sense, accounting for their personal and professional obligations.
Scarring is common after a mommy makeover, though their appearance will fade with time. It's also important to note that the scars from tummy tuck and breast surgeries are well hidden by many outfits, bathing suits, and undergarments. If mommy makeover scars are an issue, we can perform laser skincare procedures at our Oklahoma City office. These laser treatments reduce the size and visibility of scar tissue.
