Mommy Makeover In Scottsdale & Phoenix, AZ: Jonathan C. Weinrach, MD FACS

The miracle of childbirth can be one of life’s greatest gifts. However, it can also take a toll on a woman’s body that cannot always be reversed through diet and exercise. At Weinrach Plastic Surgery, Mommy Makeovers involve a customized group of plastic surgery procedures, which can include breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, Botox® and dermal fillers. Scottsdale based Mommy Makeover Specialist and Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Jonathan C. Weinrach, MD FACS is highly experienced and dedicated to helping his patients feel as good, or even better, as they did about their bodies pre-pregnancy.

As each individual woman has her own unique anatomy and body-contouring goals, Dr. Weinrach customizes each Mommy Makeover to accommodate those specific needs. The vast majority of these procedures involve contouring the breasts and abdomen, and may also incorporate other procedures to revitalize your appearance. Extensive makeovers may involve more than one procedure in order to complete the process safely.

MOMMY MAKEOVER CANDIDATES

The best candidates for a mommy makeover are women with laxity of the abdominal muscles and sagging skin. Patients who will see the best results from Mommy Makeovers are1:

  • Women who have waited at least six months after giving birth
  • Women who are no longer breastfeeding
  • Women who are not planning to have another child
  • Women that are close to their ideal body weight
  • Non-smokers

Preparing for Your Mommy Makeover

Allowing your body enough time to heal after giving birth, before scheduling surgery, is important to achieve the most natural-looking and positive results. Smoking can increase the risk of complications after surgery, as it can decrease blood flow to the surgical site and increases tissue carbon monoxide levels, both of which decrease delivery of oxygen to healing tissues.2 Dr. Weinrach prefers that his patients stop smoking or using any nicotine containing products at least 3 months before surgery.

Jonathan C. Weinrach, MD FACS personally meets with each patient who comes into the office seeking a Mommy Makeover. During your Mommy Makeover consultation appointment, he will examine your body and discuss your goals to determine the ideal procedure for you.

The Mommy Makeover Procedure Process

Mommy Makeover procedures are an individualized process that are custom-tailored to each patient. Common elements of the procedure include3:

Breast augmentation is designed to increase breast fullness and volume. Pregnancy and breast feeding can lead to loss of breast volume.  Dr. Weinrach performs breast augmentation by placing either saline or silicone gel filled implants into the breast area.  This is very effective in restoring or even improving upon the pre-pregnancy appearance of your breasts.

Pregnancy causes the abdomen to expand, which can lead to stretch marks, torn or damaged muscles, and drooping skin. A common desire among women seeking this procedure is to have a flat and toned abdomen. A tummy tuck is an effective way to restore a slimmer and more aesthetically pleasing result. During a tummy tuck, carefully placed incisions are made in order to remove unnecessary skin and fat, repair muscles that have become stretched, and tighten the remaining skin in the area, to present a more natural result. These incisions are designed to be hidden by normal undergarments or swimwear.

Liposuction is a cosmetic body contouring procedure that is designed to remove fat from parts of the body that do not respond well to a good diet or exercise plan. Liposuction removes pockets of fat away from areas like the abdomen, hips, back, thighs, and neck.

There are a variety of available liposuction techniques that are safe and effective. The SAFELipo technique is preferable in most cases. Small areas of concern can often be addressed with standard liposuction using local anesthesia in the office. Liposuction is a popular body contouring tool that often helps to give women a boost in self-confidence.

Botox® and the injection of dermal fillers are non-invasive cosmetic treatments involving very little downtime. Many women are interested in reversing signs of aging on the face that can appear after pregnancy.

Dr. Weinrach injects Botox® into facial muscles to lift the eyebrows, improve lines and wrinkles in the forehead, glabella (the area between the eyebrows and top of the nose), and reduce wrinkles in the “Crow’s feet” area. Botox® injections can also be effective in smoothing chin wrinkles and nasolabial folds commonly referred to as smile or laugh lines.

Dermal fillers are an all-natural and safe solution to enhance volume on the lips and cheeks. They can also soften the appearance of nasolabial folds (parenthesis lines), marionette lines, and improve the appearance of jowls.

RECOVERY AFTER MOMMY MAKEOVER SURGERY

As a Mommy Makeover is a very personalized procedure, the downtime will vary significantly between patients. For example, injections of Botox® or dermal fillers can often be carried out in just a few minutes, and patients are immediately able to resume their normal daily activities.

In contrast, a Mommy Makeover procedure involving a tummy tuck will involve some downtime, where activity should be kept very light for the first week, and significant weight-bearing exercise should be postponed for six weeks. Cosmetic procedures like liposuction can involve some swelling, but light activity and work can be resumed very shortly after surgery.

Dr. Weinrach prescribes medications to help alleviate discomfort and will follow up with each patient to make sure healing is progressing as expected. We are committed to making the recovery process as smooth as possible. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Again, this will depend on the combination and type of procedures performed. A straightforward breast augmentation can have very little downtime – some patients are out to dinner the night of their surgery. A combination of breast augmentation with a significant lift and implants, along with an abdominoplasty can involve 2 weeks of downtime or more. Every woman’s situation is different with varying anatomical concerns, as well as baseline health and genetics. These factors all influence recovery time. A thorough consultation with Dr. Weinrach can more accurately address this question.

Mommy Makeover can involve any number of procedures necessary to correct the changes a body undergoes after pregnancy. Common procedures involved with a Mommy Makeover include Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Lift with Implants, Liposuction and Tummy Tuck. A Mommy Makeover can involve one or a combination of any of these procedures.3 A thorough consultation with Dr. Weinrach is the best way to discuss your concerns and come up with the best possible plan to address them.

It is best to wait until you have decided that you will not be having any more children before getting a Mommy Makeover.1 Pregnancies after a Mommy Makeover procedure can reverse the results. While repeat Mommy Makeover surgery after another pregnancy can certainly be done, it is ideal to avoid that situation when possible.

Of course. The procedures involved with Mommy Makeovers are also used to address similar issues in women who have not had children. Loss of breast volume, breast sagging, abdominal laxity, and stubborn excess fatty areas all occur in women without children, too.

A Mommy Makeover can sometimes involve more than one procedure. Common procedures in this surgery include Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Lift with Implants, Liposuction and Tummy Tuck. The length of time the procedure takes is related to which procedures are determined best suited for your needs and will vary from patient to patient. A thorough consultation with Dr. Weinrach is the best way to determine which procedures will be ideal in any particular case.

This depends on the situation. It is common for multiple procedures to be combined but often for safety concerns, some procedures are staggered. Much of this decision depends on the overall health of the patient, as well as the complexity of the procedure. The best way to determine if procedures can be combined or if they need to be spaced out over time is with a thorough consultation with Dr. Weinrach.

We recommend waiting at least six months after giving birth and stopping breastfeeding to have a Mommy Makeover. This amount of time will allow your body and hormones to stabilize. For breast surgery, it is best to wait at least three months after all milk production has stopped.

Healthy non-smoking women that do not take many different medications have a very low risk of significant complications from Mommy Makeover procedures.4 These procedures are very common and safely accomplished in the great majority of women. It is vitally important to be honest and forthcoming with Dr. Weinrach about any medications or supplements you take, as well as the use of tobacco and other nicotine containing products.
