Motherhood is beautiful, and so are you. Investing in yourself with a mommy makeover in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, or anywhere in the AZ may restore your body to its pre-pregnancy magnificence. A mommy makeover by a Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Carlos Mata, a.k.a. Dr. Scottsdale® means a combination of different cosmetic procedures that target areas of the body affected by pregnancy like breasts, abdomen, hips, and thighs. The mommy makeover is fully customizable to your goals and can include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck surgery, fat transfer, and/or liposuction.
A mommy makeover is considered an invasive surgery and in many cases will require a lot of rest and help for a loved one. The surgery is performed under deep sedation in our accredited surgical facility in our Scottsdale, AZ office, and on average takes about 6 hours or longer. Most women find the recovery to be a slow process. Walking upright is difficult in the first several weeks, and it is recommended that patients take it slow during the initial recovery phase. Depending on what was addressed during surgery, it could take between 6 months to a full year for the final results to appear. With that being said, most patients can go back to a normal routine in an average of 3 weeks; however, exercise and lifting are discouraged until at least 6-8 weeks after surgery.
A mommy makeover, because of the combined nature of surgeries, is considered an invasive procedure. Anytime a combination surgery takes place, the overall risks increase. For this reason, it is extremely important that patients find an experienced plastic surgeon that has the training and skill to perform multiple procedures in one setting. Under the hands of an experienced surgeon, the risks are greatly reduced and complications are rare.

Stretch marks may be minimized when the excess skin is removed. The tightening of the skin and underlying tissues will also help in making the marks less visible. Remaining stretch marks may also be minimized after surgery with skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser and chemical peels.
While a mommy makeover creates a beautiful new shape and figure for a woman, unfortunately, it does include some scarring. The scars are most common with a breast lift procedure and a tummy tuck. The surgeon will make every effort possible to create clean incisions, as well as take great care in minimizing scarring as much as possible. Any scars that result from this surgery will be able to be concealed with undergarments or swimsuits.
