Mommy Makeover in Atlanta, GA
Becoming a mother can be a wonderful and rewarding experience, but pregnancy can affect the body’s youthful contours in a way that exercise and dieting can’t fully repair. At the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, led by Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr., we offer a combination procedure known as a Mommy Makeover for women who live in and around Buckhead, Vinings and Sandy Springs, who want to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
The Mommy Makeover is a personalized combination of cosmetic procedures that help a woman regain her youthful figure after pregnancy and lactation. Physical changes caused by pregnancy and/or aging include weight gain, stretch marks, loss of muscle tone, sagging breasts, sagging skin, a thicker waistline, and many concerns. The Mommy Makeover combines a series of cosmetic procedures designed to reverse these effects. The Mommy Makeover is highly personalized and tailored to each individual, depending on a woman’s individual shape and needs. The Mommy Makeover procedure may include a combination of any of the following treatments:
- Liposuction to extract stubborn fat and contour certain areas.
- Tummy tuck surgery to tighten the abdominal muscles, reshape the waist and lift sagging skin in the abdomen.
- Breast lift to lift and tighten sagging breasts and restore a youthful contour.
- Breast augmentation to restore volume and fullness to breasts that have become deflated by weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, and lactation.
- A combination of breast lift and breast implant augmentation to fully restore youthfulness, volume, and perkiness to the breasts.
- A thigh lift to contour and slim the inner thighs and lift sagging skin in the region.
- Arm lift to eliminate the unsightly accumulation of fat and tighten the skin on the upper arms.
- Brazilian butt lift to add fullness, volume, lift and smoothness to the butt, and sculpt the waistline.
- Vaginal rejuvenation to restore vaginal tightness.

The Mommy Makeover Procedures
A Mommy Makeover generally involves the combination of two or more surgical procedures performed in one surgical appointment. A highly personalized and customized treatment, the Mommy Makeover typically include a combination of a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast augmentation (with breast implants). In some cases, the Mommy Makeover may be split into multiple surgeries and include additional procedures, such as a breast lift, breast augmentation or reduction and/or liposuction of the abdomen, hips, thighs, flanks and back. Some women also request a thigh lift, arm lift, butt lift and/or vaginal rejuvenation in addition to the body contouring procedures. During your private consultation, Dr. Work will help you determine the ideal approach to address your unique needs.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Following the Mommy Makeover surgery, patients may experience some discomfort, such as soreness and swelling. However, these symptoms will resolve themselves in a brief period of a few days. You will be instructed to wear specialized compression garments to support your new shape, reduce inflammation, make you more comfortable and to assist the healing process.
Our meticulously gentle approach enables most women to resume regular physical activities within one to two weeks following surgery, though we recommend that you be kind to yourself and return to your activities gradually during this recovery period. You will be given a list of post-operative care guidelines that should be adhered to in order to optimize the healing process, as well as aesthetic results of your procedure. You will be advised to refrain from strenuous exercise and other physical activities, such as sexual intercourse during a period of four to six weeks, depending on the extent of your procedure and how quickly you heal. Dr. Work and our team of specialists will be on hand to answer any of your questions and provide suggestions and recommendations for optimal comfort and healing during your recovery period.
How Long Will I Need To Wait Before I See The Results From A Mommy Makeover?
You will see a dramatic transformation of your appearance immediately following your surgery. However, your smooth new body contours will become more visible once the post-operative inflammation subsides and your body has an opportunity to settle into its new shape.
How Much Does A Mommy Makeover Cost in Atlanta?
Because the Mommy Makeover is considered a cosmetic procedure, most health insurance providers will not cover the costs. The Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery keeps the procedure affordable by offering easy financing through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending. Our office also accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
