Love your body

Even though childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, it usually alters the tightness and shape of various body parts — and can leave you feeling frustrated and unattractive. The great news is that it's possible to reclaim a youthful, slimmer, tighter figure with a combination of surgical procedures called the mommy makeover performed by Dr. Vinyard.

What is a mommy makeover?

Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS) offers the mommy makeover body contouring treatment by combining skin tightening and fat reduction methods to target both the upper body (arms and breasts) and lower body (such as the tummy, thighs, and butt). Virtually any area affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, or other bodily changes can be repaired. In addition, non-surgical remedies can correct surface irregularities, such as skin problems or stretch marks, from the rapid fluctuation and stretching of the skin, tissue, and underlying muscles during pregnancy.

Getting the results you desire

Many women, like you, have difficulty returning to their pre-baby figure after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Despite all efforts to correct the changes that have occurred with diet and exercise, you may not be able to get the figure you want without surgery (especially when it comes to the tummy and breasts).

Dr. Vinyard can create a surgical plan for your mommy makeover through a select combination of breast augmentation, breast lift/reduction, tummy tuck, and liposuction procedures. To get to your desired result, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation or breast lift with an abdominoplasty.

There are many combinations within the mommy makeover to address your specific needs. While in consultation with Dr. Vinyard, he will help educate you on your options and find a surgical combination that is right for you.

I would highly recommend Dr. Vineyard, without a doubt. His staff is amazing, caring, and attentive. The app they use is game-changing. I had such a great experience with my mommy makeover. I had no complications, and the pain was better than I expected. I had such a great experience I went back for Bodytite. Five stars!

Who is a candidate?

The right candidates for body contouring and a mommy makeover are individuals who have been through pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing and have worked to get a toned, slimmer appearance through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. For many women, surgery is recommended to attain their pre-pregnancy figure. If you have completed childbearing but are displeased with the imperfections left behind, such as lifeless, deflated breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, a mommy makeover procedure could help you. The goal of Dr. Vinyard is to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body so you can resume life without additional concern about your body.

Your consultation

Dr. Vinyard will begin your consultation with an analysis and conversation about your breast and body size and shape and a physical exam. He will then commence with a detailed discussion of your options. You will meet with one of our patient care coordinators, who will explain the fees to you. The quote is based on the plan that you and Dr. Vinyard have decided upon together.

What is the technique?

A mommy makeover is a body contouring treatment tailored for each woman by plastic surgeon Dr. Vinyard based on the specific body areas to be reshaped. Many procedures can be paired together – the most common treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. The mommy makeover surgeries are performed using general anesthesia, taking a minimum of 4-7 hours based on the number of surgeries performed. In addition, an overnight stay at the hospital might be necessary.

What to expect

This cosmetic body contouring procedure is considered an invasive treatment and can surgically cover a large portion of your body. After a recovery period in the hospital, you will begin to rest and recover at home with the post-operative instructions we supply. 

Recovering from this surgery is generally a gradual process. Moving around and walking upright will be hard the first week or so, and a step-by-step home healing protocol will be provided to help your incisions and sutures heal properly. Most patients find the healing phase can take about six months.

Even though your primary recovery could take months, most patients are able to return to a normal routine, including sedentary work and light household tasks, within a couple of weeks. Everyone recovers at a little different rate depending upon the combination of procedures that you choose. You will be required to avoid heavy lifting, strenuous activities, and repetitive motions for approximately six weeks. Working out should wait for around two months. You may return to the majority of your activities six weeks or longer after your mommy makeover with the swelling gone.

Three months following your mommy makeover, we will take your first official "post-op" photos when you are very close to your final result. After your mommy makeover, we will take your first official "post-op" photos when you are very close to your final result. 

Your scars will continue to lighten and mature over the course of the next 18 – 24 months. In the end, this surgery at VIPS can be an amazing journey, providing you with renewed self-esteem once again.

How much does a mommy makeover cost?

The cost of a mommy makeover can vary depending on what you are including in your surgery. In your consultation, Dr. Vinyard will create your treatment plan before he can estimate your costs. A mommy makeover is an investment in reclaiming your body after pregnancy and childbirth, so it's important to focus on getting amazing results instead of the lowest cost. VIPS accepts many payment options, and we can help you find low-interest financing through CareCredit so your mommy makeover is easier to afford.

How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?

In your consultation with Dr. Vinyard, he will listen to your wants and needs before examining your body. After this, he can make recommendations on what should be a part of your treatment plan. Often, women want breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) together with liposuction and a tummy tuck.

Will I have scars?

While a mommy makeover offers a beautiful new shape, it does include some scarring. Dr. Vinyard will create small incisions. Most scars that result from this surgery will be able to be hidden underneath your undergarments or swimsuit. As part of your recovery instructions, Dr. Vinyard or a member of his team will go over scar care so your skin will heal flat and the discoloration of the scars eventually fade.

What if I get pregnant again?

In a perfect world, you should wait to have a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so the surgical results are not compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur. If you get pregnant after your mommy makeover, a second surgery can be performed to refresh your results.
