Why a Mommy Makeover is So Helpful to Moms

By: Dr. Nana Mizuguchi


Pregnancy and childbirth completely change a woman’s body, and not always in the most flattering ways. To accommodate the growing belly, the tummy expands, leading to stretched muscles and loose skin around the midsection and even stretch marks in some. The breasts also go through many size fluctuations, resulting in an overall loss of volume and change in shape. Mommy makeover surgery can freshen your physique after having children, as well as provide a boost of confidence.

Louisville, KY-based plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi is a mommy makeover expert. He is a dual board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon who helps patients in the Louisville and surrounding areas at his private practice Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery. His extensive experience and keen eye can create beautiful results for mothers who want a rejuvenated appearance. Here is a more detailed look at how moms in the Louisville area can get the makeover they want.

The one-stop cosmetic surgery makeover

A mommy makeover is generally a combination of two or more cosmetic procedures to enhance specific areas or address concerns moms face after pregnancy. The physical and hormonal changes women go through are unique, even with each pregnancy. No matter what those changes may be, moms in the Louisville area can turn to mommy makeover surgery for help. One of the main benefits of this makeover for moms is that more than one area can be tackled at the same time. This allows busy women to prepare for one surgery and recovery period instead of multiple procedures performed at different times.

Mommy body makeover help

Pregnancy, especially multiple pregnancies, can take a toll on a woman’s body. Common target areas for mommy makeovers are the breasts and stomach, which often don’t bounce back with diet and exercise alone.

Breast augmentation with implants, breast lift

If you experience sagging and deflated breasts after breastfeeding, breast augmentation with implants can restore breasts to their natural shape and volume. A breast lift (mastopexy) is a separate surgery that can be done at the same time to raise the position of the breasts and nipples to make them proportionate and balanced. A breast lift can be done alone and does not have to have an implant placed if the patient doesn’t want her breasts augmented.

Liposuction, tummy tuck

Liposuction is a form of body contouring that removes stubborn pockets of fat to reshape target areas of the body. A tummy tuck removes loose abdominal skin and restores separated abdominal muscles for a tighter, slimmer appearance. Liposuction and tummy tuck surgery are almost always paired together for the best outcome, but a tummy tuck may be performed as a single procedure if the target is loose skin and no excess fat is present.

After mommy makeover results

No matter what combination of help a woman may need, mommy makeover plastic surgery can have a life-changing effect. Moms will experience a rejuvenated body, feel younger, and gain a boost of confidence from their new look. In some cases, moms look even better than they did before pregnancy and breastfeeding.

It is recommended that moms wait for a mommy makeover until after they are done growing their families. It is also highly recommended to wait at least 6 – 12 months after their last pregnancy before undergoing this elective surgery. This grace period allows a woman’s body to be fully healed and ready for this body contouring transformation in order to get the best results.

Additional mommy makeover help

With today’s variety of noninvasive options, moms can also add facial rejuvenation to their list. Pregnancy can leave a woman’s complexion looking dull and tired. Moms in Louisville, KY, can feel and look more refreshed by adding injectables like BOTOX® or dermal fillers to their mommy makeover. BOTOX uses a purified form of botulinum toxin to block the signals that cause certain muscles to contract. The muscles are then prevented from making repetitive facial movements that lead to wrinkles. Dermal fillers are used to temporarily plump the skin. They are typically injected around the mouth, forehead, cheeks, and nose. Women can turn to Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery for noninvasive help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and have younger, more relaxed appearance. Consulting an expert like Dr. Mizuguchi can provide several effective cosmetic options that can be easily added to any mom’s treatment plan.

A mommy makeover can help women in Louisville, KY, feel more confident and rejuvenated after having children. A woman who wants to improve how she looks after her efforts of diet and exercise have been exhausted can turn to a mommy makeover surgeon like Dr. Mizuguchi for help.
