A Mommy Makeover is designed specifically for women who have lost their firm and toned bodies after pregnancy and breastfeeding. No amount of diet and exercise can restore lost skin elasticity, and this loss of elasticity often contributes to unflattering loose, sagging skin. Post-pregnancy, many women are faced with deflated breasts and loose abdominal muscles. A Mommy Makeover uses a combination of breast enhancement and abdominal contouring procedures to restore your slender, more youthful pre-pregnancy body.

Before & After
What if I don’t need all the procedures outlined in the Mommy Makeover?
The Mommy Makeover is designed to provide each patient with custom-tailored results. During your consultation with Dr. Koch, you will discuss your aesthetic goals. Together, you and he will decide which combination of procedures will benefit you.
What type of anesthesia is used during a Mommy Makeover?
All procedures outlined in the Mommy Makeover require the use of general anesthesia.
How long after my pregnancy should I wait before undergoing my Mommy Makeover?
It is important that you allow your body adequate healing time after pregnancy before undergoing a Mommy Makeover. Most women wait six months to a year. You should use diet and exercise to tone your body, strengthen your muscles, and lose any additional weight possible. This will help ensure the best results possible.
Does a Mommy Makeover result in scarring?
There may be some slight scarring associated with your procedures. Great care is always taken to place incisions in discreet locations that can easily be covered with clothing, underwear, or a swimsuit. Scars are likely to fade over time.
Can I have children after my Mommy Makeover?
It is not advised to have children following a Mommy Makeover. Additional pregnancies can alter the results of your procedures. However, no procedure in the Mommy Makeover prevents you from having children.
