What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?

Pregnancy is a wonderful time in a woman’s life, but it can take a toll on your body and appearance. A mommy makeover is designed to address problem areas — so you feel like yourself again. Patients choose to work with our team at Ben Schultz, MD, because we have years of experience helping women restore their beauty and confidence. Dr. Schultz knows how to create natural-looking results that complement your body type.

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.


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.

What to Expect After A 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 gradual process. Standing upright will be hard the first week or so, and a carefully followed, at-home healing protocol will be necessary to help the incisions heal properly. Most women find that the healing process can take about six months. Even though the primary recovery could take months, most patients can resume a normal routine within a few weeks. Exercise should be held off for about two months. Ultimately, the mommy makeover procedure at Ben Schultz, M.D. can make an incredible impact on women, giving them their self-confidence again.

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.
