A Mommy Makeover is a combination of plastic surgery procedures of the breast and abdominal areas, which address a woman’s post-pregnancy body issues. A Mommy Makeover is typically done in a single session, and usually includes the following procedures: Tummy Tuck, Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, and Liposuction. The goal of the Mommy Makeover is to return a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy shape or improve it all together. The result of a Mommy Makeover in Minneapolis-St. Paul is a tighter abdominal profile, voluminous breasts, and a more streamlined profile. The Mommy Makeover is best suited for women who are having trouble losing the last of their post-pregnancy pounds and have experienced a significant decrease in breast volume. Women who have experienced significant stretching of abdominal muscles or skin from multiple pregnancies may also benefit from this procedure.

“Dr. Rocheford and her staff made me feel valued, comfortable and confident in my decision to go ahead with a tummy tuck, arm lift and breast lift. I could not be happier with the results. I am now about a year post-op and loving having a shape again! I had lost about 70 pounds and had so much extra skin. Everything is back where it belongs.
On the two days I had surgery, the staff made it feel more like a spa day than major surgery. The instructions for care after the procedure were clear and I had access to a nurse if I had any questions. I highly recommend you look at her before and after gallery if you are considering plastic surgery.”

“There are not that many women surgeons in the Twin Cities. I felt Dr. Rocheford listened to what I wanted to achieve, didn’t push other procedures and was realistic about expected outcomes. I am so happy with the results, well placed stitch line and natural looking outcome. The aftercare nurse Jenny was spectacular. I felt well cared for and she was available whenever I had a question. If I decide to do another procedure I will definitely go back to Dr. Rocheford.”

Candidates for a Mommy Makeover 

The ideal Mommy Makeover candidate is someone seeking to enhance or restore their physical appearance and well-being after the transformative experience of motherhood. An ideal candidate for a Mommy Makeover is typically a woman who is done having children, is in good overall health, maintains a stable body weight, and is a non-smoker. Candidates have specific aesthetic concerns related to changes in their body after pregnancy and childbirth, such as sagging breasts, excess abdominal skin, or stubborn pockets of fat. Additionally, ideal candidates should have realistic expectations about the outcomes of cosmetic procedures and be committed to following pre-and post-operative care instructions.  

Mommy Makeover Recovery 

Recovery from a Mommy Makeover can vary based on the specific combination of procedures performed. Generally, patients can expect an initial healing period of one to two weeks, during which they may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Patients are often advised to limit physical activity, especially lifting and strenuous exercise, during the early stages of recovery. Patients may need to wear compression garments to support the healing process. Full recovery and return to normal activities typically take several weeks to a few months. It’s crucial for individuals to follow post-operative care instructions provided by their surgeon. Final results may take several months to fully manifest as swelling subsides and tissues settle.
