Posted on March 21, 2019 under Mommy Makeover

Many women are interested in regaining their pre-pregnancy figure usually when they have no foreseeable plans for another pregnancy. Specific areas of the body can be enhanced with independent cosmetic surgery procedures, but these may only have a limited impact on improving the overall appearance. Depending on the patient’s aesthetic needs and aspirations, the surgeon may recommend mommy makeover surgery.

A mommy makeover is a comprehensive procedure that can address multiple areas of the body and multiple issues such as excess fats, loose skin, and cellulite appearance in one go. Dr. Franklin Richards and Dr. Dean Jabs are board-certified plastic surgeons providing mommy makeovers through their offices in Bethesda MD and McLean VA.

Their practice, Cosmetic Surgery Associates, receives patients from Northern Virginia, Fairfax County, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and surrounding communities.


Women who give birth naturally and the ones who undergo a C-section may make equally good candidates to receive a mommy makeover cosmetic surgery. Women who are unhappy with the adverse aesthetic impacts resulting from pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding may consider this procedure if they are in general good health. Fat reduction, skin tightening, body lift, and reduction of cellulite, scars, and stretch marks are some of the benefits that a candidate may receive with a mommy makeover.

Cost of Procedure

The cost of a mommy makeover will typically vary from one patient to another, depending on their unique aesthetic needs. The surgery will include two or more procedures, which will be selected as a part of the surgical plan by the plastic surgeon in consultation with the patient.

The cost-effectiveness of this procedure is high in comparison to individual procedures. Cosmetic Surgery Associates provides mommy makeovers and other procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Fairfax County, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and nearby locations.

Key Procedures

A mommy makeover will be customized to suit the specific aesthetic goals of the patient. The procedure may include one or more of the following surgeries:

Breast Augmentation
Breast Lift
Breast Reduction
Tummy Tuck
• Body Lift
• Body Contouring
• Cellulite Reduction
• Stretch Mark Removal
• Non-invasive procedures

If the woman has suffered the loss of breast volume following pregnancy or breastfeeding, the surgeon may include breast implant surgery. In case of heavily sagging breasts, a breast lift may be included. Some women may accumulate excessive fat deposits in the breast area, requiring a breast reduction procedure. One of the most popular procedures that is a part of mommy makeovers is liposuction. The surgeon can reduce unwanted fat pockets in a less invasive way with the latest liposuction techniques.

Recovery and Risks

In most cases, the patient will be able to return to their normal activities or go back to work in about two to three weeks. However, strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and vigorous exercises should be avoided for at least four weeks. Risks can be minimized if the patient chooses an experienced mommy makeover surgeon and follows their instructions carefully from preparation to recovery stages.
