Mommy Makeover FAQ

Answers to All of Your Mommy Makeover Questions

Whether you’re unhappy with your body after pregnancy and childbirth or simply due to aging, we want to help you regain your confidence. We hope the following questions help you understand the procedure and how we perform it at NuBody Concepts. Contact us if you have any additional questions or to schedule a consultation.

What does a Mommy Makeover include?

A Mommy Makeover is a customizable procedure designed around your aesthetic goals for your body. Typically, we combine a tummy tuck with a breast augmentation. The breast augmentation may involve breast implants or NaturalFill® for Breasts and/or a breast lift—depending on your desired look. If you’d like to eliminate extra fat or add more curves to certain areas, your Mommy Makeover may include Aqualipo® or a Brazilian Butt Lift as well.

Many women are also choosing to include a labiaplasty (also known as vaginal rejuvenation) as part of their Mommy Makeover procedure. A labiaplasty is an increasingly popular procedure that reduces the size of the inner lip of the female genitalia (labia minora).

What are the advantages of a NuBody Mommy Makeover?

A NuBody Mommy Makeover is all about you. During a consultation, we’ll discuss your current concerns and future aesthetic goals before designing a package to help you achieve the look you want. In addition to breast and abdominal surgery, we may use innovative and less-invasive procedures like Aqualipo® and NaturalFill® to help shape your body. None of our procedures involve general anesthesia. A combination of IV sedation with local anesthesia allows for a much faster recovery time, fewer risks, and lower procedure costs.

How long until I can resume my normal activities after a Mommy Makeover?

At NuBody Concepts, we use “twilight” sedation (IV sedation and local anesthesia) over general anesthesia, which helps significantly reduce your recovery time. Most of our patients are back to their normal routines after one week, depending on their jobs. If your Mommy Makeover involves tightening of the muscles as well as the skin, your recovery time may be longer. We do recommend that you abstain from heavy lifting and exercise for a minimum of two weeks after your Mommy Makeover.
