What is a Mommy Makeover? 

Following pregnancy, many women find that major changes occur with their breasts and abdomen. Separation of the abdomen muscle can create a bulge in the abdomen area that can only be fixed with surgical intervention. Many women find that their breasts lose volume and or begin to fall with time. With a mommy makeover, the abdomen and breasts can be addressed at once.  

Dr. Rod tailors each of his mommy makeover procedures to the individuals’ aesthetic goals. A board-certified plastic surgeon with over a decade in practice, Dr. Rod brings comprehensive surgical skills and an artist’s eye for aesthetics to treatment.

Your Options with a Mommy Makeover

Most of Dr. Rod’s Phoenix patients choose to have procedures that address changes to the breasts and abdomen after pregnancy, including:

  • Breasts that have lost fullness in the upper poles.
  • Breasts that are sagging, have asymmetry, or have a less rounded shape.
  • A protruding belly due to weakened abdominal muscles.
  • Excess skin, tissue, and stretch marks around the midsection.

During your initial visit with Dr. Rod, you and he will collaborate to plan your treatment. Below is a description of some of the most common mommy makeover procedures:

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Patients tend to think of youthful breasts as having a “perky” positioning and a rounded contour. However, the position and shape of the breasts may change following pregnancy and breastfeeding. Many Phoenix women who come to our practice for a mommy makeover want to revise a sagging or stretched appearance. 

Dr. Rod performs breast lift surgery to give Phoenix patients back the rounded shape they had before. The surgery also raises the breasts to a more youthful position and re-centers the nipple for an aesthetically appealing appearance. 

Breast Augmentation

After having children, your breasts may have lost some of their youthful fullness. This typically happens along the upper part of the breast, reducing the cleavage or giving the breasts a deflated appearance. 

Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgeries in the United States and a procedure Dr. Rod has performed hundreds of times. He offers mommy makeover patients noticeable and natural-looking fullness and enhancement that complements their figure. 

In some cases, women benefit from both breast lift and breast augmentation procedures. The augmentation surgery restores fullness while the lift gives a more rounded shape and perkier aesthetic.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

As a woman’s abdomen expands during pregnancy to accommodate her growing child, her muscles may stretch, and her body may develop excess skin. Many of our Phoenix patients find it incredibly frustrating when, regardless of post-baby diet and exercise, they can’t restore the flat, firm, and smooth belly they had before. 

You can eliminate this excess skin by choosing to have a mommy makeover that includes a tummy tuck. The procedure can also tighten the abdominal muscles, bringing in a protruding belly. Dr. Rod can typically perform tummy tuck and breast-related procedures in a single surgical session, reducing the overall recovery time.

Body Contouring

In addition to breast augmentation/lift and tummy tuck surgery, you may also want to re-contour certain trouble spots around your body, like your waist or hips. Dr. Rod can provide liposuction to get rid of pockets of fat and give you a tighter, fitter appearance. 

In general, Dr. Rod performs liposuction during the second stage of a mommy makeover, after breast procedures and tummy tuck are complete. This allows him to shape a patient’s features more naturally and beautifully. He utilizes an advanced form of liposuction called TickleLipo, which lets him conduct the procedure safely at Dermacare Plastic Surgery using local anesthesia.



Am I a Good Candidate for Treatment?

If you want to rejuvenate your features following pregnancy and childbirth, you may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover. Dr. Rod advises Phoenix patients who are considering treatment that they should be done with having kids before deciding on surgery since pregnancy is likely to affect the results of a breast lift, augmentation, or tummy tuck.

Will I need a Breast Lift or a Breast Augmentation?

In general: If you have enough volume in your breasts but your breasts are sagging, or your nipples are not at the level of the breast crease, then you may want to consider a lift. If you are happy with the overall shape and position of your breasts, but they lack fullness or aren’t the size that you want them to be, a breast augmentation may be the better approach.
