About the Mommy Makeover
Louisville, KY board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi frequently consults with women who desire to get their pre-pregnancy figure back. Even though childbirth is an exciting and amazing experience for a woman, it can alter the size and shape of various body parts — and can leave one feeling frustrated. The great news is that it's possible to get a tighter, slimmer figure thanks to the help of a mommy makeover at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery. The mommy makeover procedure uses a blend of liposuction and skin removal to target the breasts, tummy, and lower body — essentially any area affected by pregnancy. In addition, nonsurgical procedures can be used to smooth surface irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation and blotchy skin, from the quick fluctuation and stretching of the tissue and skin during pregnancy.

"Decided on 485 cc's under the muscle. I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! - I'm 30 years old and I have two kids, I've wanted implants for a long time, after I breastfed my youngest who is now 5 years old, I became very deflated and hated my chest, I was a 36D. I met my surgeon Dr. Mitzuguchi about a month ago and had a virtual consultation where we decided I'd need a lift and I showed him my wish pictures, at my pre op appointment I was able to go in and try on different sizes of implants and we decided on 485 cc's under the muscle, I just had my surgery yesterday and so far so good! I'm very happy with my results so far, and dr. Mitzuguchi and his staff are amazing, very pleasant to work with and very tentative to their patients needs. I'm pretty sore today but it's nothing too bad, I'm on muscle relaxers and pain killers, and I have my first post op visit on Monday!!!"- A. / RealSelf / Jun 12, 2020
"TT scar revision with liposuction and fat transfer to buttocks. - Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff were amazing. Couldn't be happier with my results thus far. Dr Mizuguchi spends time with his pt's and made sure that I was fully informed and had realistic expectations of the procedure and results. I'd most certainly recommend him and his staff to anyone looking for a skilled and caring plastic surgeon."- I. / RealSelf / Apr 13, 2020

Mommy Makeover Ideal Candidates
The right candidate for a mommy makeover are women who have completed pregnancy and childbirth and have worked to attain a tighter figure through diet and exercise with little result. For so many new moms, surgery is necessary to return to their pre-pregnancy shape and size. If you are finished growing your family but you are frustrated with the side effects left behind (such as sagging breasts, loose abdominal skin, or unwanted fat in the lower back, flanks, and buttocks), a mommy makeover could be a great option for you. Our goal at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery is to help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure so you can resume life without worry.
Mommy Makeover Surgical Technique
A mommy makeover is a custom treatment, tailored for patients by Dr. Mizuguchi based on the specific body areas to be addressed. Many procedures can be completed together — the most common treatments are breast lift with or without implants, abdominoplasty, and liposuction. All of these procedures are performed using general anesthesia, taking 3 – 7 hours based upon the number of treatments. In addition, an overnight stay at the hospital may be required. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical skin rejuvenation, such as laser treatments and injectables, to soften facial lines and reduce surface irregularities.
What to Expect with Mommy Makeover
After a recovery period in the hospital, you will start your recovery at home with rest and proper aftercare. This phase is generally a slow process. Standing upright will be hard the first couple of weeks, and a carefully followed, home treatment protocol will be needed to ensure the incisions and sutures heal properly. The majority of women find the healing phase can take about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients are able to get back to a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Working out should wait for approximately two months. In the end, this surgery at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery can have an incredible impact on the lives of our patients, giving them back their self-confidence.
Mommy Makeover Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover can vary depending on what procedures are included in your treatment plan. During your consultation, Dr. Mizuguchi will create your treatment plan before estimating your costs. A mommy makeover is an investment in reclaiming your confidence after pregnancy and childbirth, so it's important to focus on reaching your goals instead of the lowest possible cost. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery accepts many payment options and we can help you find low-interest financing so your mommy makeover is easier to afford.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation, Dr. Mizuguchi will listen to your concerns and goals before examining your body. After this, he will make recommendations on what should be a part of your surgical plan. Typically, women select a breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) plus liposuction and a body lift.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Pregnancy and childbirth can take a toll on your body, so nonsurgical treatments are usually not enough to achieve noticeable improvements. During your consultation, Dr. Mizuguchi can explain both surgical and nonsurgical options. Based on your needs and goals, he will let you know if other treatments can be considered.
Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover offers a beautiful new shape, it does include some scarring. Dr. Mizuguchi will make small, clean incisions. Most scars that result from this surgery will be able to be covered with undergarments or swimsuits. As part of your recovery instructions, a member of our team will go over scar care so your stitches heal and 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 for stretching out 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.
