The Beauty of Motherhood
When a mother gives birth, it is one of the most exciting and happy periods of life. However, it often leads to physical changes that can affect a woman's self-esteem. These changes may include a decrease in breast fullness and firmness, the development of unwanted fat deposits, loose skin, and stretch marks on the breasts and abdomen. Fortunately, a Mommy Makeover in Reston, VA, offers a solution to help reverse many of these changes and enhance the feminine physique. Our surgeons are highly sought-after for their approach to the Mommy Makeover and perform thousands of these procedures every year.

Accentuating Natural Curves
A custom-tailored Mommy Makeover created by our world-renowned team of surgeons can dramatically remake your look with several great benefits, including:
Custom Body Contouring
During the first meeting with our cosmetic surgeons for a Mommy Makeover Reston patients will have a chance to discuss your desired goals and concerns and have all of your questions answered. To ensure your safety during the plastic surgery process, a comprehensive medical history and physical examination will be conducted. Your doctor may use imaging technology and detailed measurements to help plan the details of your procedure, such as the appropriate size for breast implants. By the end of the consultation, your surgeon will create a surgical plan tailored to your specific needs and lifestyle.
Look Good, Feel Good
At our practice in Reston Mommy Makeovers typically involves two or more procedures focusing on the breasts and abdomen, such as a breast lift, breast augmentation, Brazilian Butt Lift, or tummy tuck. The specific procedures chosen depend on each patient's needs and goals.
For breast surgeries, common procedures include breast augmentation, which restores breast shape and volume; breast lift (mastopexy), which reshapes the breasts and lifts the nipple to a more youthful position; and breast reduction, which lifts and reduces the breasts and relieves symptoms like neck pain and back pain. In some cases, a combination of breast augmentation and mastopexy is performed. Abdominal surgeries in a Mommy Makeover typically include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles and liposuction to further contour the flanks and back. The extent of these procedures can vary depending on individual circumstances. Our award-winning surgeons have the expertise to guide patients in selecting the most suitable procedures and techniques based on their specific needs, ensuring optimal results for each Mommy Makeover.
An Alluring Transformation
The final results of a Mommy Makeover may not become fully apparent until several months after the procedure. While certain aspects, such as breast reduction and removal of excess skin, may exhibit immediate improvements, it is important to trust the healing process and allow your results to develop over time. For example, it can take up to six months for breast implants to settle into their final position, and scars can continue to heal and fade for years after the procedure.
Your Pre-Baby Body
The recovery time after a Mommy Makeover surgery can vary depending on the procedures involved. In most cases, patients can go home on the same day, but for more extensive surgeries or individuals with underlying medical conditions, an overnight stay in our onsite recovery suite may be necessary. Typically, patients can expect to return to work within 10 to 14 days.
During the initial one to two weeks after cosmetic surgery, the abdomen will feel tight, and the patient may need to stay bent at the waist for about seven to ten days. Your surgeon may have you wear a compression garment and a specific type of bra to aid in the healing process. While your breasts may feel mildly sore and tight, the discomfort should gradually subside. It's important to start walking early after the surgery to minimize the risk of blood clots.
At around four weeks, you can resume cardiovascular activities, and at six weeks, you can gradually increase lifting activities to more than 10 to 15 pounds. Our world-renowned Reston plastic surgeons advise avoiding vigorous core workouts such as planks and crunches, as well as chest exercises involving push-ups and barbells, for at least three months to ensure proper healing. Additionally, we will provide you with instructions on optimal scar care to help achieve the best possible outcome.
Yes, a Mommy Makeover often includes breast procedures to address sagging or deflated breasts. Depending on your specific needs, the surgeon may recommend a breast lift, breast augmentation, or a combination of both to restore volume, improve shape, and lift the breasts to a more youthful position. Other women may benefit from breast reduction.
While the results of a Mommy Makeover can be long-lasting, it's important to note that the natural aging process and lifestyle factors can impact the outcome over time. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, can help prolong the results. Additionally, pregnancies after a Mommy Makeover can affect the outcome, so it is recommended that you do not have this procedure if you are planning any future pregnancies.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Potential complications may include infection, bleeding, scarring, anesthesia complications, and changes in nipple or breast sensation. However, by choosing a plastic surgeon who is credentialed by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has extensive experience in Mommy Makeovers, you are minimizing these risks.
While incisions are necessary during a Mommy Makeover, our skilled plastic surgeons will make every effort to place them discreetly and minimize their visibility. Scars will initially appear red and raised but will fade and flatten over time. Following proper scar care instructions provided by your surgeon can help optimize the healing process. We also offer a range of scar treatments, including scar camouflage with medical micro-pigmentation, laser treatments, Morpheus8, and steroid injections.
It is generally recommended to complete your family before considering a Mommy Makeover. Pregnancy following the procedure can undo the results achieved through surgery. However, if you do become pregnant after a Mommy Makeover, it should not affect your ability to carry a healthy pregnancy to term.
It is crucial to select an experienced surgeon who specializes in Mommy Makeovers and has extensive experience in performing the specific procedures you are considering. Take the time to research and schedule consultations with different surgeons to discuss your goals, ask questions, view before and after photos, and ensure you feel comfortable and confident in their expertise before making a decision.
