Motherhood brings many wonderful changes, including new depths of love, patience, and joy. Unfortunately, it can also change your body in ways that may not always be pleasing. Many moms find that no amount of exercise or dieting can ever bring back their flat, pre-pregnancy stomach. Breasts also lose their shape after pregnancy and breastfeeding. At Plastic Surgery Center of the South, women visit us for Mommy Makeover surgery in Marietta from Woodstock, Acworth, Canton, and throughout metro Atlanta, Georgia, to refresh their appearance and their attitude.
To renew your look, request a consultation with one of our surgeons using our online form or call (770) 421-1242 to schedule your appointment.
The Mommy Makeover is a personalized combination of procedures designed to help restore a woman's body after childbearing. Procedural options often include one or more of the following:
- Breast lift - to firm, elevate, and reshape sagging breasts for a more youthful appearance.
- Breast augmentation - to restore volume to breasts (often performed in conjunction with a breast lift to correct sagging).
- Breast reduction - to reduce excess skin, fat, and breast tissue. A breast reduction can also elevate and reshape overly large breasts.
- Tummy tuck - to tighten lax stomach muscles and reduce excess skin and fat, resulting in a flatter, firmer waist and abdomen. This procedure is included in most of the Mommy Makeovers we perform.
- Liposuction - to reduce excess fatty deposits that accumulate on the abdomen, flanks, hips, or thighs.
- ThermiVa® - to tighten vaginal tissues and muscles stretched excessively during childbirth using a nonsurgical, radiofrequency treatment for women of all ages.
Your plastic surgeon will thoroughly discuss all of your procedure options during your consultation, including breast enhancement procedures. Together you will decide which options will best provide your desired results.

Candidates for a Mommy Makeover
The best candidates for a Mommy Makeover are women who are healthy and fit, but dissatisfied with the appearance of their body after childbearing. You should also be sure that you have the time and support that you need to recover from your procedure. You will need help, especially if you have young children, for at least 2 weeks.
Many women report feeling that their confidence and overall outlook are renewed after visiting us for cosmetic surgery. Feeling better about yourself improves your quality of life, which is a benefit to your loved ones as well. We regularly hear our patients say that their only regret is not having their procedure sooner.
Recovery & Results
Our surgeons and highly trained staff will do everything possible to ensure that you are safe, comfortable and well cared for during the recovery period. After your Mommy Makeover, you will be bruised and swollen for a few days. We will prescribe pain medication to manage your discomfort, which most patients take several days. You will receive detailed instructions on how to care for drains, dressings, and sutures, and we are always available to answer any questions you have following your surgery. Although your range of motion will be limited, we encourage all patients to begin walking as soon as possible.
Within approximately 1 to 2 weeks, all sutures and drains will be removed, and your mobility should be greatly improved. Some women return to office work and light activities at this point, but you should avoid exercise and strenuous activities for about 4 to 6 weeks. Although scars may take as long as 9 months to heal and fade, you will be able to enjoy your new body contours within just a few weeks.
At our state-of-the-art surgical facility, we treat patients from throughout the state, the country and the world. Here, you'll receive top quality medical care in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere without the inconvenience of big city traffic or big city prices. Call us today at (770) 421-1242 to schedule your appointment, or request a consultation online.
