What Is a Mommy Makeover?

“Mommy Makeover” is a popular term used to describe a combination of cosmetic procedures designed to help women regain their pre-pregnancy bodies and boost their self-confidence. Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can significantly change a woman's body, and a Mommy Makeover in Arkansas typically targets areas such as the breasts, abdomen, and hips.

The procedure may include:

By customizing the procedures to the individual's needs, a Mommy Makeover aims to restore a youthful and toned appearance, positively impacting many mothers' physical and emotional well-being.

Advantages of the Mommy Makeover

Our mommy makeover in Arkansas offers a holistic approach to body rejuvenation. We combine multiple procedures in a single surgery, resulting in a harmonious and balanced outcome.

Some other benefits of this comprehensive approach include:

  • Every woman's body is unique, and the Mommy Makeover is fully customizable to address individual concerns and goals. Dr. Koonce works closely with patients to tailor the procedure to their needs, ensuring personalized and natural-looking results.
  • Combining multiple procedures into a single surgery reduces overall downtime and saves costs compared to undergoing each treatment separately.
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding can lead to changes in breast shape and volume. With breast augmentation or lift as part of the Mommy Makeover, mothers can regain perkier and fuller breasts, enhancing their overall body contour.
  • One of the most significant changes after pregnancy is stretching abdominal muscles, leading to a "mommy pooch." A tummy tuck in the Mommy Makeover tightens these muscles and removes excess skin, resulting in a flatter and firmer abdomen.
  • Even with a healthy lifestyle, some post-pregnancy fat deposits can be challenging to lose. Liposuction as part of the Mommy Makeover targets these stubborn areas, refining the body's contours for a more sculpted appearance.

Navigating the Mommy Makeover Recovery

While individual recovery experiences may vary based on the extent of procedures performed, patients can generally expect some common aspects. Swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort are normal during the initial days after the surgery, but these effects gradually subside over the next few weeks.

Patients will be advised to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and support the healing process. It is essential to diligently follow Dr. Koonce’s post-operative instructions, including medication schedules and wound care, to minimize the risk of complications and promote optimal healing.

Most patients can resume light activities within the first week, but strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks to allow the body to heal correctly. Regular follow-up visits with Dr. Koonce will be scheduled to monitor progress and ensure the recovery is proceeding as expected.
