The beauty of becoming a mother and bringing new life into the world can be one of the most fulfilling things some women experience in their lifetime. However, women also often experience changes in their bodies after childbirth and breastfeeding that they may seek cosmetic plastic surgery to address. The mommy makeover is a customizable combination of procedures designed to restore a toned and svelte figure. The combination of procedures performed during a mommy makeover is customized to meet the goals of each patient. Frequently requested procedures include: liposuction, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast augmentation, breast lift, arm lift, thigh lift, butt lift. Fat harvested during liposuction is often used to enhance the appearance of the breasts and buttocks if desired.

The Mommy Makeover Procedure with Dr. Namnoum
Once both you and Dr. Namnoum have determined the right combination of procedures for your mommy makeover surgery, he will create a surgical plan. The most traditional combination of procedures for this option include abdominoplasty, liposuction and breast augmentation. However, as each woman’s figure and overall body goals vary, this is best determined by the patient and surgeon during appointments at our Atlanta-based office. To begin the mommy makeover, Dr. Namnoum and his surgical team will place the patient under general anesthesia.2 Next, he will complete the combination of procedures determined with you prior to surgery.
Recovery & Results from a Mommy Makeover
After successfully completing your surgery, Dr. Namnoum and his team will be sure to bandage your incision sites properly and provide detailed instructions for after-care. The results are often immediately noticeable and will continue to improve over the next few months as swelling goes down and healing progresses.
Follow-up appointments will also be scheduled with our office, to ensure the incisions are healing properly and any complications are caught and treated early.
