About the Mommy Makeover
While childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment in your life, it usually does change the look, shape, and size of certain body parts. When going to the gym consistently and/or changing your diet to lose the baby weight, it can be very frustrating when you do not see physical improvements. Some women find it very hard to come to terms with their body after baby. The most exciting news is that your pre-baby body is achievable with a mommy makeover. Our trusted team of board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Krishna S. Dash and Dr. Rupesh Jain, can perform multiple plastic surgeries at one time to help you attain a youthful, slimmer figure.
At the Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs, CO, we can combine fat removal and skin tightening to reshape both the upper body (arms and breasts) and lower body (tummy, back, and/or thighs). Any body part affected by weight gain or nursing can be addressed with a mommy makeover (per your surgeon's recommendation). We also offer nonsurgical and anti-aging treatments that can be incorporated to correct surface imperfections like stretch marks, surgical scars, hyperpigmentation on the skin, and more. During your consultation with Drs. Dash or Jain, you will discuss what combination of procedures is best for you.
A mommy makeover can consist of different combinations of the following surgical and nonsurgical procedures:
- Anti-aging skin treatments
- Arm lift
- Breast augmentation (with or without a lift)
- Breast reduction (with or without a lift)
- Breast lift
- Butt lift
- Cosmetic injectables (fillers and/or wrinkle relaxers)
- Fat transfer
- Laser skin treatments for hyperpigmentation issues and more
- Lower body lift (skin removal from back, buttocks, and thighs)
- Scar revision surgery
- Thigh lift (inner and/or outer thighs)
- Tummy tuck
Ideal candidates for this surgery are individuals who have gone through childbearing and have tried to achieve a toned, slimmer appearance through a clean diet with little results. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgical intervention is needed to attain their pre-pregnancy body. If you are past childbearing and are displeased with the remaining effects on your body (such as deflated, sagging breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of pocketed fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks) this procedure could be perfect for you. The overall goal of our surgeons is to help you get back your pre-pregnancy body so you can resume life without feeling self-conscious.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"I am beyond ecstatic of the professionalism and perfection that I received from Dr. Dash and her entire team. I would recommend them over and over again. Dr. Dash made me feel so comfortable from day one. I explained to her my worries and weaknesses, and she ensured me that I was in great hands, and that I was. Dr. Dash and her husband worked on me together due to the multiple procedures I was having and what an awesome team they are. At the surgery center I was told that you always want to seek out perfectionist surgeons and that is what you have. I could not agree any less. The day of operation i was walking around by day 3, i no longer needed my walker and was more mobile than I thought I would ever be. Do your research and make sure you feel comfortable with the surgeon and team that you choose. Its a big surgery and an expensive investment, and YOU DESERVE ONLY THE BEST! THANK YOU DR DASH AND TEAM. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs."- H.K. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2020
"I felt very comfortable every step of the way, from first interview through the last post surgery visit. The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The blepharoplasty surgery results are exactly what I requested, very natural looking. Dr Jain (a super nice person) clearly listened to my thoughts about the procedure and desired results, offered options and information to consider, and at no time did I feel pressured in any way. I have recommended this office wholeheartedly to friends, and would go back myself in a second with any further surgery ideas!"- H.H. / Google / Jan 28, 2020
"I am a raving fan of the Institute of Plastic Surgery. I have worked in the beauty industry in London, Paris, New York, L.A. Montreal and Vancouver. This place rivals big city style. From the moment you walk in the front door and are greeted by the smiles. The ‘understand YOUR world’ attitudes of Shalom and Arriana guide you into the elegant relaxed ambiance. My first appointment was to see Dr. Jain. I was sixtynine and was looking at a face lift. When I left the office the face lift was off the table...replaced by a group of small procedures....the ultherapy was a dream. Pulling up my neck and adding collagen to my face. How exciting! Ashley was my technician and she is quite simply amazing. My time with her went by so incredibly fast. I will be returning for more of these treatments in the years to come. Ashley also did some of my BBL treatments. Thankyou Ashley. Nicole has been my technician along with Ashley for the BBL treatments recommended by Dr. Jain. Nicole is a sweet spirit who also did the deep cleansing treatment on my face. I could not have been more impressed with the results of both these procedures. Thankyou Nicole.And now to the star of the show....Dr. Jain. Dr. Jain is marvelous! From his very relaxed demeanor to his extremely extensive knowledge of his field Dr. Jain decided what was best for me. He was bang on. Yes, he would have made so much more money by doing the prementioned face lift. I did not need a face lift! I needed exactly what he recommended. I feel and look great. Dr. Jain has injected Botox at the outside corners of my eyes...not overly done...just perfection. He certainly is the wizard of needles! Last summer’s broken neck left me with dominant neck cords. Dr. Jain’s finesse with the needle has softened these cords immensely. I have filler in my gnarly hands. They lost at least fifteen years immediately. I have also had filler around my mouth and lower face...the filler lasts about a year and Dr. Jain never gives me an over the top look. Thank you to Dr. Jain my new sensational beauty coach! I love my new family. Many Thankyou’s to all of you. Also a very special Thankyou for the gorgeous orchid plant you sent after I broke my neck. As mentioned before I am your a Raving Fan!I am so thrilled with my beauty family. I broke my neck last summer and shortly after I came home from the surgery I received a gorgeous orchid plant from Dr.Jain and his staff. It really is the little things that make this Institute an outstanding place to visit. All the little polished touches that welcome you to Dr. Jain’s world. I am so thrilled that I am now a part of this world. It is a perfect outcome for me."- J.P. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
"I love my new neck! I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed! - I love Dr. Jain and his staff! Dr. Jain tells you the truth about what he can do for you. I have had other doctors who promised what they would do and how I would look and it did not turn out that way. I am so happy with the procedure Dr. Jain did for me. He was very kind and honest with me. If you need a procedure done I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed!"- W. / RealSelf / Dec 20, 2019
The mommy makeover procedure is a unique surgery, tailored for women by our plastic surgeons based on the areas of concern to be reshaped. A variety of procedures can be considered together — the most popular treatments are breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia and could last between 3 – 7 hours based on the complexity of the surgical case. Also, a day or two stay at the hospital may be needed. Your treatment plan might include nonsurgical methods, such as an injection or a laser treatment, that can be used to soften facial wrinkles and decrease surface imperfections.
What to Expect
A mommy makeover is categorized as an invasive process and can cover a wide range of the body. Once leaving the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest. Recovering from this surgery is generally a lengthy process. Walking will be difficult the first few days, and a thorough, at-home care protocol will be provided to make sure the incisions heal properly. Most women find the healing process can last around six months. Even while the primary healing could take months, the majority of women are able to resume a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Working out should be held off for about two months. Regardless of recovery time, the mommy makeover procedure at the Institute of Plastic Surgery can be life-changing for women, providing them with a renewed self-esteem once again.
Mommy Makeover FAQs
What if I get Pregnant Again?
Pregnancy weight gain will change your body again. It is ideal to be finished with growing your family before having a mommy makeover, so that your surgical results are not compromised. Your treatment areas that have been lifted, enlarged, or reduced will be at risk. On the bright side, you may qualify for a mommy makeover revision surgery for certain areas. Results vary patient to patient.
What About My Stretch Marks?
When you decide to have a tummy tuck, thigh lift, butt lift, or breast lift, the skin in the area will be removed. If there are stretch marks on the skin, then the stretched skin will be discarded with it. This will not eliminate all your stretch marks. We also offer other nonsurgical treatments and skin care products to rejuvenate the skin and help fade imperfections.
Are Mommy Makeovers Safe?
Even if you have the surgeries one at a time, there will be surgical risks. When procedures are combined, the risk level can increase. You can discuss the pros and cons of combination surgery with your plastic surgeon to see if the risks outweigh the benefits. Having a meticulously skilled plastic surgeon (like Dr. Dash or Jain) is essential to any cosmetic surgery. This is especially true if you trust your surgeon to modify several areas of your body. Every patient will have her own list of pros and cons to having more than one surgery at a time. Our team will be here to help you understand each procedure, how to care for yourself after surgery, and much more.
How many scars?
The number of scars you have after a mommy makeover will be determined by what you have done and where your plastic surgeon placed the incisions. Every effort will be made by your plastic surgeon to place incisions carefully to minimize visible scarring. Plastic surgery scars eventually fade and can be hidden under your clothing. You may not wear a lot of skin-revealing swimsuits, but most patients believe that the physical results following a mommy makeover far outweigh the scarring afterward.
