Mommy Makeovers

What is a Mommy Makeover?

For many mothers in Charlotte, giving birth to and raising their children are some of their proudest moments. However, pregnancy and childbirth can have a significant effect on a mother’s appearance and body. The changes that accompany motherhood can affect a woman’s deeply personal sense of attractiveness, sexuality or femininity. Mothers can work to diet and exercise to restore their pre-baby appearance, but many of the effects of childbirth seem to be permanent despite significant efforts. It is possible to achieve a tighter figure and slimmer appearance with a mommy makeover performed by the expert plastic surgeons at Queen City Plastic Surgery.

A mommy makeover can include a range of procedures, including fat reduction, skin tightening, a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation, liposuction or even microneedling and botox. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Enam Haque has worked with many women in Charlotte to design a comprehensive and individualized mommy makeover that has helped them to achieve their aesthetic goals and recapture their pre-pregnancy body pride and confidence.

During pregnancy and childbirth, the uterus expands and grows to accommodate the developing fetus and newborn child. This growth can also expand or even tear a pregnant woman’s abdominal muscles, leading to stretch marks as well as a loose or flabby abdominal appearance that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise.

This kind of body change is due to the stretching of the connective tissue of the abdomen. Plastic surgery can address these physical changes to help restore a firmer, more cohesive abdominal area. In addition, pregnancy and breastfeeding can also lead to significant changes in the look and feel of a woman’s breasts. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, a mother’s breasts may grow rapidly and later shrink, leading to an increased appearance of looseness or sagging. As a result, many mothers feel less confident in body-conscious clothing, at the beach or in intimate situations.

Every mother’s body is different. The most ideal individualized solution may vary from person to person. If you want to change your appearance and restore your pre-baby body, Dr. Haque can work with you to develop a unique, personalized plan that comprehensively addresses all of your concerns and helps you improve not only your appearance but also your confidence and sensuality.

Ideal Candidates for a Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is best suited for healthy women in Charlotte who want to address the effects of pregnancy and childbirth on their bodies. Because a mommy makeover is such a personalized process, it is important that each woman makes this decision in order to reach her own goals, with a realistic approach toward achievable outcomes.

As pregnancy and childbirth can reset the effects of these procedures, they are best performed after a woman has decided that her family is complete. In addition, as your weight and body size can have an effect on your results, they are best suited for women in Charlotte, NC, who are satisfied with their current weight and are not planning on making a significant future change in terms of weight gain or loss.

Planning Your Mommy Makeover

Dr. Haque will work with you to develop an individualized plan to target all of your areas of concern in the series of procedures included in your mommy makeover. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, he has years of experience in producing successful, beautiful results for Charlotte mothers who want to rejuvenate their bodies. Dr. Haque will review before-and-after photos and help to demonstrate the effects of different types of procedures to help you achieve your goals. He can make specific recommendations that can help you determine the precise areas to be targeted during your procedures.

Dr. Haque’s mommy makeover provides the opportunity to combine multiple plastic surgeries and cosmetic procedures for a comprehensive change. Some of the most popular procedures for women in NC include tummy tuck surgery, breast lift or augmentation procedures, vaginal rejuvenation, liposuction in the flanks, lower back or abdomen or other body contouring procedures. These can also be combined with specialized non-surgical facial procedures, like Botox, dermal fillers or microneedling, to rejuvenate your face along with your body.

Once Dr. Haque has developed a full surgical plan for your procedure, you can expect that the surgery itself will last for three to seven hours, depending on the options that you select. In most cases, the surgery will be performed under general anesthesia, and you will have some private recovery time at Queen City Plastic Surgery before you return home.

Your Recovery After a Mommy Makeover

You will receive detailed guidance for your recovery period from your board-certified Charlotte plastic surgeon. The specific protocol for your recovery will change depending on the surgical options that were part of your procedure. In general, bandages will be placed at the points where incisions were performed, and you will use a support bra or elastic bandage to help support your breasts in the recovery period. Patients may also use compression garments to help support their recovery for procedures performed on the abdomen, waist or buttocks.

You will receive medications to help assist your healing and reduce your pain in the days immediately following your treatment as well as a timeline for your follow-up appointments at Queen City Plastic Surgery with Dr. Haque.

The healing period will take several weeks, and you will begin to return to a normal routine. Dr. Haque will give you instructions that provide a timeline for your return to work as well as exercise and other activities. You will begin to see the outcomes of your procedures almost immediately after your surgery, but in the months that follow, you will see the final appearance of your rejuvenated body following your mommy makeover.
