What Is a Mommy Makeover?
Dr. James A. Hoffman understands the need of mothers to still look their best and stay young and vibrant especially after having children and balancing work and mommy duties. For mothers in St. Paul, Minneapolis we have Mommy Makeovers to answer your need for a better looking you without all the hassle. Mommy makeovers are becoming more and more popular in St. Paul, Minneapolis. These are multiple plastic surgical procedures that will help restore the pre-pregnancy body of a woman to counteract the effects of having kids.
Mommy makeovers usually include an abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck and breast augmentation procedures. Liposuction, body lifts, and other body sculpting techniques are also utilized to maximize the results of a mommy makeover. With a mother’s tight schedule, this is definitely a good solution to achieving their pre-pregnancy form without having to spend hours every day in the gym or in front of the mirror only to get very minimum results from all the effort.
What Are the Treatments Available for a Mommy Makeover for Patients in St. Paul, Minneapolis?
A mommy makeover for our patients in St. Paul, Minneapolis will be customized to exactly what you need and what you want the final results to be. The effect of childbearing is different for every person, which is why the procedures that we recommend for mommy makeovers are not uniform for all patients in St. Paul, Minneapolis. Below are some of the procedures that we include in a mommy makeover:
- Breast lift – this is the perfect treatment option for mommies with sagging breasts that is usually a result of breastfeeding
- Breast augmentation – for mommies who feel that they need to restore the lost volume of their breasts especially after pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Breast reduction – during lactation, it is normal for the breasts to engorge and some mommies consider having this procedure done because of the discomfort of overly large breasts
- Body sculpting – using different cosmetic techniques it is possible to restore the tightness in different areas of a woman’s body that could have expanded due to pregnancy or weight gain.
- Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck – to remove the excess skin that is a result of the stretching of the skin in the abdomen during pregnancy. This is very effective in restoring a mommy’s pre-pregnancy form, something that diet and exercise cannot achieve.
- Liposuction – for mommy makeovers, this is usually done in the flanks and hip area for a slimmer contour
- Cosmetic genitoplasty – this is for the modification and repair of the labia minora and labia majora which could have stretched during childbirth
Mommy Makeover Candidates
Healthy women who have stopped breastfeeding and have no plans for subsequent pregnancies are perfect candidates for mommy makeover surgery. This procedure is not a smart choice for women who plan to have more children, because subsequent pregnancies will reverse the work that has been done.
Patients should have reasonable expectations and be fully devoted to the necessary recuperation period after mommy makeover surgery.

Patients who want to undergo a mommy makeover should learn as much as they can about the surgery, including benefits and potential complications. Part of this process is contacting our office to set up a consultation with Dr. Hoffman.
The consultation will involve a review of the patient’s medical history, current medications, and anticipated outcomes. Dr. Hoffman will perform a physical examination, and photographs may be taken.

Dr. Hoffman will ask the patient about their goals and then help them select the procedures for their mommy makeover accordingly.

Recovering from Your Mommy Makeover
The recovery process for your mommy makeover will depend on the type of procedure performed and the number of procedures performed. One of the benefits of a mommy makeover is that there is only a single recovery period as opposed to several over the course of several months if the procedures were performed separately. There will be some swelling and bruising. Any pain you may experience can be managed with medication.
