Motherhood is no doubt a beautiful part of a woman’s life where you are privileged to give birth to a baby. However while the woman’s body is built to give birth, pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can leave shocking emotional and physical changes to your body.
Stretch marks, excess fat, and loose skin replace your youthful and trim figure that diet and exercise don’t help much restore. You may have sagging or deflated breasts that don’t seem to return to the original size, volume, and location.
And your tummy has stretch marks and sagging, droopy skin you want to hide.
Instead of becoming conscious about what to wear and only dreaming of putting back a bikini, we can help bring back the pert, trim, and fit look you had before birth.

Pregnancy has different effects on each woman. However, there are a few common issues a pregnant woman suffers from like:
• Loose skin
• Deflated breasts
• Protruding belly
• Stretched and loose skin in the breast, thigh, and abdominal regions
• Stretch marks on the thighs, belly, and breasts
• Stubborn and left-over fat pockets in the belly, thighs, and back
A mommy makeover in Scottsdale includes multiple procedures that address all or any of these problems.
Breast augmentations and breast lifts help give more firm, balanced and voluminous breasts. A tummy tuck tightens abdominal muscles to provide a firm tummy.
Sometimes, you may have more than one aesthetic concern when you need a combination treatment plan. And this is where mommy makeovers come in.
Dr. Jacobsen will personalize your mommy makeover to provide physical and emotional benefits by:
• Smoothening separated and loose abdominal muscles
• Reducing unwanted fatty pockets around your body
• Reducing facial aging signs like a double chin
• Rejuvenating sagging breasts to make them youthful and complimenting
• Restoring or enlarging breast volume
• Reducing or eliminating skin stretch marks
And you also end up with restored or increased self-confidence and esteem levels. Depending on your treatment plan, costs, personal health, and desires, Dr. Jacobsen will decide if more than one procedure can be performed at a time or separately.
A mommy makeover is mainly the ideal option for women eager to achieve their post-pregnancy dream body. But unfortunately, find it difficult to reach their goals at the gym because, at times, a healthy diet and exercise routine won’t be enough.
This is where your expert plastic surgeon Dr. Jacobsen helps slim, smoothen and augment your natural curves to help you look and feel best.
He will review your medical history, evaluate your concerns and discuss your overall goals. You make an excellent candidate for a mommy makeover if the effects of pregnancy and childbirth leave you with more than one aesthetic concern.
You also make a good candidate for the procedure if:
• Your surgery outcome expectations are realistic
• You don’t have any uncontrolled medical conditions which may affect the healing
• You have a stable weight and near or within a few pounds of your ideal weight
• You are physically healthy enough to recover from the surgery
• You follow a healthy lifestyle and diet
• You don’t smoke or are willing to not smoke before or after the surgery
In addition to these requirements, it is better to opt for a Mommy Makeover only when you don’t have ideas of having more children.
It’s not because these cosmetic procedures will affect your future pregnancy or breastfeeding abilities.
There is a high chance that future pregnancies will affect the surgical outcomes and recreate the same issues you wanted to resolve through a mommy makeover.
As the abdomen and breasts undergo maximum changes during pregnancy, abdominoplasty and breast surgery are the most popular mommy makeover surgeries.
In the initial consultation, Dr. Jacobsen will ask a few questions like your reasons for surgery, and your medical history and examine the concerned areas. He will then decide on the right combination of procedures to give you your desired post-pregnancy body.
A mommy makeover typically includes:
The abdominal wall stretches as your uterus expands during pregnancy. Only a few lucky women spring back to their natural shape after pregnancy. But for most, no exercise and diet tighten the belly to its original shape. A tummy tuck is ideal for achieving a smoother and slimmer abdomen by removing excess skin and pulling your stomach.
Fat sometimes settles in stubborn pockets that do not respond to diet and exercise. Common sites include the abdomen, upper back, arms, and thighs.
Liposuction is a safe and minimally-invasive option for removing this subcutaneous fat to improve your body contour. It involves using tiny incisions to gently suction excess fat out using a slim, hollow tube called a cannula.
The breasts are most affected during and after pregnancy, giving unpredictable results. Depending on your age and skin elasticity, your breasts may sag with stretching, lose volume, or have a combination of both.
Dr. Jacobsen can enlarge your breasts to replace lost volume, correct sagging through a breast lift, or restore and enhance breasts using breast lift and augmentation.
Some women opt to include surgical facial rejuvenation procedures with the other mommy makeover procedures. These procedures include cosmetic surgeries like an eyebrow lift, nose lift, and chin lift to help refresh a tired, stressed, and aged appearance.
Mommy makeovers can indeed be rewarding after your pregnancy and childbirth. It helps give you your pre-pregnancy body, restores your self-esteem, and even brings back spice to your sex life.
However, depending on your aesthetic requirements, a mommy makeover can comprise of one or multiple procedures. You thus have to first schedule an appointment with Dr. Jacobsen to find out what you need to undergo to achieve your desired results.
You can call us at 602-212-0100 to schedule your appointment to decide if you are a perfect candidate for a mommy makeover and your ideal treatment plan.
However, Dr. Jacobsen reminds you that a mommy makeover doesn’t prevent you from gaining weight after the procedure. So while cosmetic surgery procedures do remove excess fat, they do not negate the possibility of future weight gain.
There is always the chance of fat cells shrinking and enlarging if your weight fluctuates in the future. We advise patients who undergo a mommy makeover to maintain their results by sticking to a healthy lifestyle.
