Having children is one of the greatest blessings a woman can experience. Along with the many changes that motherhood brings, the shape and appearance of a woman’s body may be different after she has had children. Because of this, many women seek to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies through a multiple-surgery procedure that has come to be known as a “mommy makeover.” This procedure typically addresses areas such as the breasts, abdomen, and waist, but may also focus on other areas of the body as well. Depending on your individual preferences and needs, the following surgeries may be considered for the procedure:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast reduction
- Breast lift (mastopexy)
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)

Mommy Makeover Results and Recovery
Depending on which surgeries are completed during the procedure, it may take anywhere from a couple of weeks to a month or more before patients are cleared for light activity. Because the mommy makeover procedure is one that includes several different surgical procedures, the final results of the surgery may not be evident for several months. Following Dr. Swail’s post-surgical instructions are essential to an efficient recovery process that is free of complications. Taking care of your incisions and protecting them from excessive force, motion, or abrasion is very important for proper healing and to prevent infection.
Candidates for the Procedure
Because every woman’s body responds to pregnancy differently, no two mommy makeovers will be the same. This procedure is highly individualized to your unique body composition and goals, and we are happy to meet with prospective patients to determine if they are a good candidate for the mommy makeover procedure. You may be a candidate for this surgical procedure if you are:
- Finished having children
- In good physical and emotional health
- At your ideal body weight
- Positive-minded with realistic expectations
While these are not the only requirements that potential candidates must meet, they are major considerations that Dr. Swail and his team will make when determining your eligibility for the procedure.
