Thinking About a Tummy Ruck After Pregnancy? Get Our Mommy Makeover!

Looking good to feel great after giving birth to your child is one of the best things you can do to give back to yourself. If it means going through procedures like liposuction, breast lifts, and a tummy tuck after pregnancy, then so be it, because why not?

Surgeries are major decisions though. You’ll need to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to whom you can articulate what you want done comfortably. Here are other considerations when you’re finally ready for that life-changing mommy makeover.


The main reason most people go under the knife is to improve their physical features. For mothers, these procedures may include perking up of sagging breasts, removing fat deposits,  eliminating excess skin, and tightening of muscles in the abdominal region.

Some effects of childbearing, such as having excess fat or skin on the abdomen, can’t be remedied by exercise, a diet, and other natural means. Women who face this kind of problem can opt for a tummy tuck after pregnancy, which can do wonders to their self-esteem.

Another common issue mothers battle is breast deflation after pregnancy and breastfeeding. There are several options to correct droopy and saggy breasts like a breast lift, breast augmentation, and a combination of both.

When you interview prospective surgeons, it should be clear that their goal is to keep you happy. One way of knowing that is if they’re aiming for a natural look after a procedure. You should be able to communicate with each other well and understand what you want to achieve.


Don’t be afraid to ask questions to your surgeon and their medical staff about the whole process, from consultation to recovery, so you can set your expectations. It will benefit you all if you have a good idea of what you’re getting into.

If the clinic has resource materials about the procedures it offers, get a copy and use it for your own research. The surgeon and their staff should provide you with guidance and support, so you won’t feel rushed when making a decision.

In addition to showing you patience and making you feel comfortable, a knowledgeable staff will help build your trust and confidence. It’s especially necessary for you to feel safe because the attention involves revealing intimate body parts and flaws.


Just as body types vary, results of surgeries will be different for each person too. And what a client thinks they need to go through may not exactly be recommended for them. This is why the consultation process is a very important part of the procedure.

A surgeon’s expertise and abilities are, without a doubt, crucial to the success of a patient’s cosmetic surgery. Thus it’s imperative for you to choose a doctor who provides honest and realistic recommendations based on your physical examination and body type.

Other things to consider when you’re up for surgery include your medical history, health conditions, and weight. The consultation with your surgeon will determine if you’re a good candidate for certain procedures.

It’s also during the consultation when the surgeon will lay down your personalized surgical plan and the price quote. Costs will vary because of the customization that will be figured out after your evaluation.

The Mommy Makeover at Quinn Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center

Like a spa package, Quinn Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center’s Mommy Makeover includes at least two or more procedures, such as breast lifts with or without implants, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. Not all moms need every listed surgery and others may request more procedures.

The set of procedures performed for Mommy Makeover is on an outpatient basis. A tummy tuck usually takes one to two hours under general anesthetic. If it’s combined with a breast lift and/or augmentation, the procedure will likely take between three and five hours.

Recovery differs from one client to another, but the recovery time after the Mommy Makeover isn’t any longer than when only one procedure is done. Most patients recover within two weeks. Some of them take more or less time to recover.

If you’re a mom who’s finished with bearing children and you’re close to your desired weight, take advantage of the Mommy Makeover. But be sure that you have support at home, especially when you have small kids, so you won’t have a hard time during your recovery period.
