About the Mommy Makeover
Orlando, FL plastic surgeon Dr. F. Jorge Gonzalez regularly works with women who wish to have their pre-pregnancy figure back. While childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, it can change the tightness and shape of certain body parts — and could leave one feeling a little frustrated. The most exciting news is that it's achievable to reclaim a tighter, slimmer figure with the assistance of the mommy makeover performed at Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery. This body contouring treatment uses a combination of skin tightening and fat reduction methods to reshape the breasts, tummy, and lower body — virtually any body part affected by nursing, weight gain or loss, etc., can be repaired. Furthermore, nonsurgical remedies can be incorporated to smooth surface imperfections, such as skin problems or stretch marks, from the rapid stretching and fluctuation of the skin, tissue, and underlying muscles during pregnancy. Call our office in Orlando, FL to schedule a private consultation to see if this cosmetic surgery is right for you.

Ideal candidates for body contouring and mommy makeover are women who have undergone pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing, and have tried to get a tighter figure through a consistently healthy lifestyle with little result. For many women, surgical intervention is recommended to get their pre-pregnancy figure. If you are past childbearing and are frustrated with the imperfections remaining on your body, such as lifeless, deflated breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of fat tissue in the hips, thighs, and buttocks, this procedure could help you. The overall goal of Dr. Gonzalez is to help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body so you can get back to living life without additional concern about your figure.
The mommy makeover procedure is a body contouring surgery tailored for each woman by plastic surgeon Dr. Gonzalez based on the areas of concern to be addressed. A variety of procedures can be paired together — the most popular treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. The mommy makeover surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours, depending on the complexity. Also, a day-long stay at the hospital might be necessary. It is common to also incorporate nonsurgical skin procedures, such as an injection or a laser treatment, to smooth facial wrinkles and diminish surface issues.
What to Expect
Once leaving the hospital, you will be able to recover and rest at home. It's important to adhere to all post-op instructions and to understand that the recovery is a gradual process, which can take up to six months. Although moving around will be difficult for the first week or so, your mobility will continue to improve as the soreness and swelling dissipate. Even while the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to return to a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Exercise should be held off for about two months. The mommy makeover procedure at Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery can be an amazing journey for women, allowing them to show off their body confidently once again.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs will vary depending on which procedures are part of your surgical plan. During your consultation, Dr. Gonzalez will develop your treatment plan and then he will be able to discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is about rejuvenating your body after having children so it is best to concentrate on getting amazing results rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery takes several payment methods and we can provide information on finding low-interest financing to make your mommy makeover affordable.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your consultation with Dr. Gonzalez, he will understand your wants and needs before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can give you suggestions on what to include in your treatment plan. Often, women want a breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both) together with a tummy tuck and liposuction.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body, which is why nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to produce significant improvements. In your consultation, Dr. Gonzalez will go over both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. After listening to your concerns and goals, he will be able to tell you if a procedure like nonsurgical liposuction (including BodyTite) may be helpful.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a rejuvenated figure, it does leave surgical scars. Dr. Gonzalez will create clean, small incisions. Most scars will be placed so they can be hidden with swimsuits and underwear. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Gonzalez or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care so your sutures heal flat and eventually fade.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete so your results aren't compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk for changing if you get pregnant again. Should you have another child after a mommy makeover, another surgery may be done to restore your results.
