Will a Mommy Makeover Help Me Get Rid of Pregnancy Weight?

By: James Nachbar, MD, FACS


Pregnancy often leaves lasting changes on a woman's body that can be difficult to reverse with diet and exercise alone. At Scottsdale Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ, Dr. James Nachbar offers a mommy makeover, a procedure he pioneered and has refined over the years. With this personalized combination of surgeries, Dr. Nachbar helps women reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies, addressing multiple post-pregnancy issues in one comprehensive treatment.

Combining liposuction with other body contouring treatments, a mommy makeover may provide the solution you need to get rid of stubborn pregnancy weight. Here's what you can expect from this personalized treatment.

Why is it hard to lose weight after pregnancy?

Getting rid of pregnancy weight can be particularly difficult due to several factors. Hormonal changes during and after pregnancy can significantly affect your body's metabolism and fat storage. Meanwhile, the physical demands and exhaustion of caring for a newborn often leave little time or energy for exercise. Additionally, breastfeeding can impact weight loss, as the body retains fat stores to ensure a steady milk supply. These combined factors make shedding pregnancy pounds a daunting task, leaving many women to feel like they're stuck with their post-pregnancy bodies.

What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a personalized set of cosmetic procedures designed to address the physical changes resulting from pregnancy and childbirth. This transformative approach typically includes a tummy tuck, which removes excess skin and tightens abdominal muscles; breast augmentation or a lift to restore breast volume and shape; liposuction to get rid of stubborn fat deposits; and buttocks enhancement to lift and shape the buttocks for a more contoured appearance. By combining these procedures, a mommy makeover allows women to tackle multiple post-pregnancy concerns in a single surgical session, leading to more cohesive and satisfying results with a shorter recovery timeline.

How can a mommy makeover help deal with leftover pregnancy weight?

A mommy makeover in Scottsdale specifically targets areas where post-pregnancy weight is most stubborn. The tummy tuck addresses loose skin and weakened muscles in the abdominal region, while liposuction removes resistant fat pockets from various parts of the body. By combining these procedures, a mommy makeover provides a more effective and lasting solution for post-pregnancy weight loss and body contouring than diet and exercise alone.

What other issues can you address with a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is not limited to addressing pregnancy weight. It can also resolve a variety of other post-pregnancy body concerns, including:

  • Sagging breasts: Lifts and restores volume for a more youthful appearance.
  • Separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti): Repairs and tightens the core.
  • Stretch marks: Reduces their visibility, especially around the abdomen and breasts.
  • Excess skin: Removes loose skin resulting from significant weight loss or multiple pregnancies.

By tailoring the mommy makeover to each patient's unique needs, Dr. Nachbar strives to ensure comprehensive and satisfying results.
