Mommy Makeover

Cosmetic Surgery Options for Mothers in Kalamazoo

Motherhood is one of the most beautiful, wonderful, and rewarding experiences in a woman’s life. Oftentimes, however, after childbirth, no matter how hard a woman tries to work out and eat healthy, her body will not completely bounce back to its youthful self. If you have stubborn fat, are dissatisfied with your current breast size or shape, or your tummy is suffering from loose skin, a mommy makeover may be an excellent option to help you gain back your confidence.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Holley’s specialty is giving mothers their youthful body back with a combination of surgeries that are tailored to each woman’s unique needs. Regardless of the area(s) you would like to improve upon, Dr. Holley is ready to partner with you to give your body the makeover it deserves. Your mommy makeover procedure will likely consist of two or more procedures that focus on enhancement/correction of the breasts and contouring of the body and midsection.

Mommy Makeover Questions to Discuss with Dr. Holley

  • How long before I can return to my daily activities?
  • What can I do before surgery to help get the best results?
  • Where will my surgeries take place?
  • Will my surgeries be done at the same time?
  • What results can I expect to see?

Your Mommy Makeover Procedure

Many women focus their mommy makeovers on procedures that improve their breasts and stomach. These procedures may include breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast revision, breast lift, liposuction, and/or a tummy tuck.

One of the main concerns for women after pregnancy is the appearance of their midsection. After being stretched over the course of nine months, it can be nearly impossible for the skin and muscles to tighten back up on their own—especially if you’ve gone through multiple pregnancies. To resolve this issue, Dr. Holley recommends tummy tuck surgery to strengthen the underlying abdominal muscles and restore a naturally tight appearance by removing loose, excess skin and tissue. If stubborn fat is also a concern of yours, Dr. Holley can include liposuction as a part of your mommy makeover.

In addition to concerns about their tummies, many mothers are also unhappy with changes that pregnancy has had on their breasts. Pregnancy and birth can cause a mother’s breasts to lose volume, change shape, and begin to droop or sag. For these concerns, Dr. Holley recommends including a form of breast enhancement surgery as a part of your mommy makeover. A breast lift can help to bring the breasts back to an elevated and youthful position, while an augmentation can restore volume and give you back a full and feminine breast shape. Some mothers may also consider a breast reduction or revision as part of their mommy makeover.

There are many different combinations of surgeries that can be performed as a personalized mommy makeover procedure. Dr. Scott Holley wants to ensure you are comfortable during your procedure and will perform surgery under general anesthesia. He recommends performing the mommy makeover as a single surgery (all procedures at the same time), but some women may choose to space out their individual procedures over time with recovery periods in between.

Because the mommy makeover is a highly individualized procedure, he will go over the details of your specific case prior to your surgery.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

Whenever you undergo multiple surgeries, the recovery process will be slightly longer to allow your body to heal. Many women take 2-3 weeks off of work to ensure they are fully healed and feeling up to work activities. Your exact recovery time will vary based on which procedures are performed and whether they are performed simultaneously or as separate surgeries.

The results from Dr. Holley’s previous mommy makeovers speak for themselves. As your body heals, you will begin to feel your youthful body returning. Do something for you and give yourself the body you deserve for all the hard work you have put in already.
