Am I A Candidate For A Mommy Makeover?
Ideal candidates for a mommy makeover procedure are females who have completed childbearing and have worked to get a younger-looking and tighter body through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. For so many new moms, surgical intervention is needed to reclaim their pre-pregnancy shape. If you are past childbearing but you are feeling hopeless with the effects left behind, such as deflated, sagging breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or unwanted pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, this procedure could be a great option for you. The goal of Dr. Schultz is to help you not only regain your pre-pregnancy shape but to improve your overall body aesthetic.
"How do I even begin to say how wonderful Dr. Ben Schultz is … he is simply the best physician/surgeon I’ve ever encountered! He is extremely knowledgeable, cares deeply about his patients, and has an impeccable bedside manner! He provided excellent care before, during, and after my nasal surgery. He is very attentive and always answered all of my questions. I know he has several patients, but he made me feel like I was his only one! I had a few complications after the surgery and he was very accommodating and understanding. It's rare to find a physician so caring and concerned about my health!"- K.W. / Google / Jun 02, 2023
"Right from the beginning I knew I would be in good hands with Dr. Ben. I was really nervous about my surgery but he put my mind at ease. From initially meeting him he was friendly, compassionate and easy to talk to. He was very thorough and answered any concerns I had. You can tell he truly cares for his patients. He would always check up on me to see how I was doing and was available when I needed him. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me. Dr.Ben is truly an amazing surgeon!"- E.H. / Google / Apr 17, 2023
"Wow...where should I start??!! I was diagnosed with breast cancer July of 2022. My GYN referred me to Drs. Ben and Michael Schultz (I will leave a separate review for Dr. Michael). From the time of my first consultation until today, Dr. Ben has been a God send. He is meticulous, and set realistic expectations. He texted me daily after my surgery to ensure I was feeling ok and healing properly. He did an amazing job on my reconstruction. EVERY doctor and staff person that has seen my results say, "Wow, your surgeon did an amazing job!" I usually question EVERYTHING I am told. However, he provided information in a way that was clear and concise. and.... best of all... his work proved exactly what he said he was going to do. Thanks Dr. Ben! ~Chevel God Speed!"- C.V. / Google / Apr 07, 2023
"Dr. Ben is amazing at what he does. And, amazingly, he gets back to me immediately with every question and concern. He always has a smile on his face to put you at ease. He and his father are the kindest doctors I’ve ever dealt with."- R.L. / Google / Mar 24, 2023
"Dr Ben, I can’t even put in words how appreciative I am of this man. I’ve been wanting a reduction for over 8 years now, I was at the point where the size literally weighed me down. He sympathized with me so much immediately and set himself apart from other surgeons I’ve met with by not downplaying my pain. I was so nervous about my surgery but he reassured me at every single step, he gave me his personal number for any post op questions which made me feel even better about choosing him. Every time I had a question, I waited no more than 30 mins for a response which was surprising given the amount of patients I’ve met at his practice. As a black woman, anything dealing with medical professionals is scary but Dr. Ben is the best I’ve ever interacted with. He restored my confidence in my body, went from a 36H to about a D cup. I have had absolutely no complications with my surgery, I felt like I was back to myself about 3-4 weeks post op. Thank you so much Dr. Ben! May God bless you infinitely"- M.M. / Google / Mar 18, 2023
WHAT TREATMENTS ARE OFFERED FOR A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
A mommy makeover is a unique treatment plan that's tailored to each woman by Dr. Schultz based on her specific goals and needs. A variety of procedures can be applied together — the most common treatments are breast lift with or without implants, abdominoplasty, and liposuction with or without fat grafting. All of these procedures are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours, depending on the complexity. In addition, a one-night stay at the hospital or hotel with a private duty nurse may be necessary.
Mommy Makeover FAQ
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs can vary depending on which procedures are part of your surgical plan. In your consultation, Dr. Schultz will create your treatment plan, and then he will be able to discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is an investment in reclaiming your body and confidence after having children, so it is best to concentrate on getting amazing results rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. Ben Schultz, M.D. takes several payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing — so your mommy makeover is easy to afford.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation with Dr. Schultz, he will listen to your concerns and goals before performing a physical examination. After this, he can make suggestions on what to include in your treatment plan. Most women want breast surgery (augmentation and/or a lift) together with liposuction and a body lift.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Pregnancy and childbirth are hard on your body, so nonsurgical procedures are usually not enough to get the results you want. During your consultation, Dr. Schultz will explain your surgical options.
Will I have scars?
While a mommy makeover offers a rejuvenated figure, it does leave some scarring. Dr. Schultz will make clean, small incisions. Most scars will be placed so they can be hidden with undergarments or swimsuits. When reviewing your recovery care instructions, Dr. Schultz or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care — so your sutures heal flat and eventually fade.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete 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. Should you have another child after your mommy makeover, a second surgery can be done to restore your results.
Reclaim Your Figure
Sagging breasts, excess skin, and other surface irregularities can be corrected with a mommy makeover treatment procedure. When you come in for your initial consultation, Dr. Schultz will address your concerns and create a tailored surgical plan to achieve your restoration goals using cutting edge approaches.
