What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A traditional Mommy Makeover refers to a combination of two or more cosmetic surgical procedures used to restore a woman’s figure after having a baby. 

With a wide range of non-surgical cosmetic treatments available today to treat aesthetic and functional issues, many women are choosing to forego surgery and address their concerns less invasively.

What Is a Non-surgical Mommy Makeover?

A non-surgical Mommy Makeover takes advantage of state-of-the-art treatments that have been developed to address the effects of pregnancy without surgery.

What Is Involved in a Non-surgical Mommy Makeover?

A non-surgical Mommy Makeover can include any procedures that improve the appearance of a woman’s body and often involve the following:

  • Stretch mark treatment
  • Vaginal rejuvenation
  • CoolSculpting®
  • Medical weight management

Stretch Mark Treatment

A common complaint among mothers is the development of stretch marks. The Icon™ fractional laser delivers restorative pulses of energy into targeted areas to treat scars, stretch marks, unwanted pigment, and even wrinkles without harming the surrounding skin. 

Your skin absorbs the energy and triggers the body’s natural healing process, creating healthy new tissue. 

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Changes to the vagina after childbirth create more concerns. The MonaLisa Touch® uses laser technology to address several issues that can be caused by the physical act of giving birth and hormonal influences. 

Vaginal dryness, pain with intercourse, and other symptoms related to the loss of vaginal wall thickness can all be treated by the MonaLisa Touch®, with little downtime, to significantly improve a woman’s quality of life.

Non-surgical Body Contouring

CoolSculpting® can be used to help restore a woman’s figure after having a child. This non-invasive treatment freezes unwanted fat with no need for knives, needles, or downtime.

Along with the Cooladvantage™ applicator, CoolSculpting® can treat the abdomen, flanks, and inner thighs.

Medical Weight Management

For women battling weight gain, medical weight management can assist with achieving and maintaining weight goals.  

Combining Surgical and Non-surgical Procedures 

Adding a surgical procedure to your makeover when necessary is also an option. Pelvic reconstructive surgery is recommended to address a number of issues. As part of a medical Mommy Makeover, it may include a labiaplasty to reconstruct the vulva and a perineoplasty to restore the vaginal opening to its pre-pregnancy diameter.

When Is the Right Time to Have a Makeover?

Immediately after giving birth, your attention will be focused on bonding with your baby and recovering. 

Once you’ve gotten back into a regular routine, have completely healed from childbirth, and feel ready, you can call your gynecologist or trusted medspa to schedule a consultation.
