Who is a candidate for a mommy makeover?
Candidates for mommy makeover surgery are women who have had children and would like to improve their post-pregnancy bodies.

How long is recovery after a mommy makeover?
All mommy makeovers are performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. Depending on how many techniques are combined, surgery could last multiple hours. It is common for patients to have a short hospital stay afterward. Most women in Atlanta, GA, will require a full month to recover, but many are able to return to work within two weeks. The results will reveal themselves in multiple stages as the treatment areas begin to heal. It generally takes a full year for all of the changes to make their final appearance. Our surgeons can provide more detailed information about your expected recovery timeline during a consultation.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
Are mommy makeovers Safe?
There are always risks to consider when contemplating any kind of cosmetic surgery. When procedures are combined, those risks may increase. Therefore, it is important to find a board-certified plastic surgeon who is skilled in performing multiple procedures in one setting. Rest assured that our plastic surgeons know how to provide safe and effective mommy makeover outcomes.
What if I get Pregnant after surgery?
We do recommend women wait until they are finished having children before undergoing a mommy makeover. This is because additional weight gain may impact your results. However, it is possible to undergo additional procedures if you happen to get pregnant again. Simply schedule an assessment and consultation with Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta to learn more.
CAn you treat Stretch Marks?
The answer depends on your individual surgical plan. If stretch marks exist on an area of the body (i.e. breast, tummy, etc.), they may be removed when the excess skin is trimmed away. For any stretch marks left behind, as well as any other skin irregularities that may exist, our team may recommend skin rejuvenation techniques that can help fade and remove these imperfections.
Will I Have Scars?
Scarring will occur with almost any cosmetic procedure. However, every effort is made to place and close the incisions carefully so that any scarring is minimized. Scarring eventually fades into faint lines and can be concealed by undergarments and bathing suits. Most patients of our patients in Atlanta feel that the benefits they receive from a mommy makeover far outweigh the scarring left behind.
