What is a Mommy Makeover?

A ‘Mommy Makeover’ is a popular term used in the plastic surgery world to describe the combination of surgical procedures used to treat the perceived negative changes seen after pregnancy. The ‘Mommy Makeover’ is a powerful transformational operation which is used to restore a woman’s body and bring them back, as close as possible, to the shape and function of the pre-baby body. Dr. Aldo Guerra of Guerra Plastic Surgery Center in Scottsdale, AZ has perfected the art of the ‘Mommy Makeover’ which consists of a tummy tuck and a breast enhancement. So let’s break down exactly what the difference is between the packages we offer.

5 different pregnant women

Mommy Makeover One: Tummy Tuck + Breast Augmentation

The Problem: After the baby, the breasts have lost the volume and perkiness of youth, but the breasts did not sag in a significant manner. The tummy now looks flabby and has way too much skin after the baby weight is gone!

The Solution: The most popular mommy makeover procedure at Guerra Plastic Surgery Center is the tummy tuck with breast augmentation. Dr. Aldo Guerra uses his advanced techniques including a very low tummy tuck incision, the latest silicone breast implants, and more. Those who want the perkiness to come back should consider truly cohesive breast implants.

Ideal Candidate: Healthy, non-smoker, have excess skin and fat around the tummy area, and unhappy with the size of their breasts

Mommy Makeover Two: Tummy Tuck + Breast Lift

The Problem: After the baby, the breasts have lost the volume and perkiness of youth, but the breasts have also sagged in a significant manner. There is too much skin excess on the breasts, but not enough size, and the breasts look deflated, small, and saggy looking. The tummy now looks flabby and has way too much skin after the baby weight is gone!

The Solution: Breasts can sag after childbirth and need a breast lift to rejuvenate the breasts. Patients will also need a set of breast implants to increase cup size. Simply adding a breast implant will not lift the saggy breasts and yield a good results. The combination tummy tuck can be paired with a Wise pattern breast lift, vertical breast lift or areolar breast lift. We recommend Microneedling and PRP as the best treatment to reduce scarring.

Ideal Candidate: Healthy, non-smoker, have excess skin and fat around the tummy area, and unhappy with the sagginess of their breasts.

Three: Tummy Tuck + Breast Reduction

The Problem: The breasts enlarged with pregnancy and, after the baby, they never normalized in size. The breasts are now too big and have also sagged in a significant manner. There is too much skin and weight on the breasts, with many patients experiencing neck and back pain. The tummy now looks flabby and has way too much skin after the baby weight is gone!

The Solution: After childbirth patients also request the mommy makeover procedure tummy tuck with breast reduction. The breasts can be reduced to a more ideal size and Dr. Aldo Guerra typically does not recommend breast implants with breast reduction.

Ideal Candidate: Healthy, non-smoker, have excess skin and fat around the tummy area, and unhappy with the amount of breast tissue they have.

The Process

If you’re not sure about which option is right for you, Dr. Guerra will create a treatment plan during your consultation. After going over your goals and choosing which option you would like to go with, we will schedule you for your surgery date. On your surgery day, depending on which procedure you have, the operating time can be between three to six hours. We then will see you three to five days after your surgery to make sure everything is healing properly. A second visit about a week after that will be made to remove a drain. The third and fourth visits will focus on getting back to your day-to-day routine.
