Women who come to our Toledo, Ohio practice about a mommy makeover share a common goal of regaining confidence in their bodies. Pregnancy and childbirth are wonderful experiences, but can create physical changes that diet and exercise alone cannot correct. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Craig Colville specializes in mommy makeover procedures, which usually include a tummy tuck and cosmetic breast surgery.
If you're considering a mommy makeover procedure, request a consultation to meet personally with Dr. Colville. Or call our office at (419) 534-6551 to schedule an appointment. Dr. Colville serves patients who travel from communities such as Maumee, Bowling Green, and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

This 26 year old mother was unhappy with the appearance of her abdomen and breasts after pregnancy and childbirth. By combining the breast lift and tummy tuck procedures, Dr. Colville was able to give her a mommy makeover!
The changes to a woman's body after having children can be fairly dramatic. Weight changes, breastfeeding, and fluctuating hormones can leave you with sagging abdominal skin and breasts that have lost much of their volume. If these changes have made you lose confidence in your figure, a mommy makeover procedure customized by Dr. Colville can help restore your pre-pregnancy body.
Exercise and diet alone aren't enough to reverse the physical changes after pregnancy. Pursuing a healthy lifestyle is important, of course, but only cosmetic surgery can repair the abdominal wall and remove stubborn fat pockets and excess skin.
Dr. Colville customizes your mommy makeover after conducting a thorough physical examination and discussing the specific concerns you have during the consultation. Based on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Colville recommends a combination of procedures that can safely create the results you want in a single operation.
The following procedures are most commonly part of a mommy makeover:

The specific nature of your surgery depends on the procedures Dr. Colville performs. He creates a precise surgical plan that addresses your concerns, making patient safety his top priority. He uses general anesthesia during a mommy makeover.
Your procedure may take several hours, depending on the number and type of procedures included in the operation. In most cases, patients return home on the day of the surgery. We can also arrange for an overnight stay if necessary or preferred.
One of the benefits of a mommy makeover is the convenience of having a single recovery following your operation. The specific nature of your recovery depends on the procedures performed. In the majority of cases, the recovery involving a tummy tuck will take the longest. You should plan to take at least 10 to 14 days off of work if your mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck. The recovery from cosmetic breast surgery usually takes considerably less time.
Whatever your combination of procedures, it's important to have someone at home to help with everyday tasks, especially if you have young children. You must avoid bending over, reaching, and lifting as your body heals. Dr. Colville provides all mommy makeover patients detailed postoperative instructions that should be closely followed to help minimize the risk of complications and help you remain comfortable during the recovery.
If you have any concerns or questions during the first few weeks following your operation, don't hesitate to contact Dr. Colville's office.
