Mommy Makeover

Women who come to our Toledo, Ohio, practice for a mommy makeover share a common goal of regaining confidence in their bodies.

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 Findlay, Ohio.

Should You Consider 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.

Planning Your Mommy Makeover

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:

  • Breast Augmentation: Breast implants can restore volume to deflated breasts after childbirth and breastfeeding. Breast augmentation may improve the appearance of breasts that are just beginning to sag — but in most cases with appreciable sagging, a breast lift is needed.
  • Breast Lift: Mastopexy elevates and reshapes the breasts, and it can move the nipple to a more natural position, facing outward rather than downward. If you’re satisfied with the size of your breasts, but are unhappy with sagging or drooping that has developed, a breast lift is the appropriate procedure. Dr. Colville often combines breast lift with implants to get the best cosmetic results.
  • Breast Reduction: In some cases, a woman’s breasts remain overly large after having children, causing back, shoulder, and neck pain. Breast reduction surgery removes excess tissue and skin, and it’s common to combine reduction with a breast lift.
  • Liposuction: Weight gain during pregnancy is expected, but it can be difficult for some women to lose all of the baby weight. Women who never struggled with excess fat prior to having children may notice “love handles” or a “muffin top” — localized areas of fat that can be hard to lose. Liposuction can permanently remove this stubborn fat for patients who are not overweight, toning and sculpting areas such as the flanks, thighs, arms, or buttocks.
  • Tummy Tuck: Diastasis recti, or separation of the abdominal muscles, is a common problem after pregnancy. Because the separation occurs at the fascia, sit-ups or exercise cannot correct this condition. A tummy tuck repairs these muscles and can also restore a flat, firm abdomen for women who notice excess skin or a “pooch” after pregnancy.
  • ThermiVa®: This innovative noninvasive procedure tightens vaginal tissue and enhances sensitivity without surgery. ThermiVa uses controlled radiofrequency energy to stimulate production of collagen, which helps minimize the “loose” feeling that often occurs after women have children. This quick treatment can be done as part of a mommy makeover, or as a stand‐alone procedure in Dr. Colville’s office (Bella Via).

Dr. Colville is a member of The Plastic Surgery Channel alongside many other talented surgeons. Dr. Cash, a fellow member, discusses ThermiVa in detail in this video.

Your Surgery

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.

Healing After Surgery

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.
