Most moms agree that after giving birth, they no longer recognize their figures. Changes in the breasts, abdomen, and lower body can make it difficult to enjoy wearing their favorite outfits or to feel confident in their appearance. Dr. Eric Barker at Peak Plastic Surgery Center in Denver, CO performs the comprehensive mommy makeover surgery to transform the physique from head to toe.
What To Expect From A Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is a great procedure option for women who have undergone pregnancy and childbirth but who have difficulty attaining their pre-pregnancy bodies through diet and exercise alone. During your consultation, Dr. Barker will develop a personalized surgical plan that aligns with your cosmetic goals. The surgery can address the following issues:
- Deflated, sagging breasts
- Loose abdominal skin
- Separated or weakened stomach muscles (diastasis recti)
- Stubborn areas of fat on the hips, thighs, and buttocks
A mommy makeover is a completely customized procedure, and we can combine multiple treatments that meet your individual needs. Dr. Barker can perform a breast lift (mastopexy), a breast augmentation, a breast reduction, VASER liposuction, a fat transfer, or a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). No matter the types of procedures recommended, you will receive general anesthesia, and the surgery can last for 3-7 hours.
In some cases, patients may need to stay overnight for careful monitoring. Once we can safely discharge you, you will begin your recovery at home. It takes anywhere from 3-6 months for a full recovery, depending on the procedures performed. Generally, you can start a normal daily routine in a couple of weeks; however, you need to follow our aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing. Throughout your recovery, please reach out to us if you have any questions.
