Mommy Makeover


A mommy makeover is a package of surgical procedures that aim to reverse the physical changes following pregnancy, nursing, and the effects of aging and gravity. Bourgeois Freel Plastic Surgery offers a mommy makeover for Baton Rouge patients looking for comprehensive body contouring and rejuvenation.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding are some of the most priceless and fulfilling milestones in a woman’s life. However, they also come with unwanted physical changes to the female body. These changes can have a huge impact on a woman’s confidence and comfort.

When dieting and exercise have not been effective for restoring your pre-baby body, a mommy makeover might be what you need. It’s a combination of several cosmetic procedures designed to help bring back your ideal body.

Here are some imperfections that can be addressed through a mommy makeover:

  • Loose skin, excess fat, separation of muscles, and stretch marks on the abdomen
  • Sagging breasts
  • Breasts that have lost volume
  • Oversized breasts that cause back, neck, and/or shoulder pain

Ideal Candidates for a Mommy Makeover

A mommy makeover is an ideal procedure if you’re not planning to have further pregnancies in the future. This is because further pregnancies may undo some of the benefits of the surgeries, since you would again experience stretched-out skin, sagging breasts, and other changes.

If you are in a good state of health, a non-smoker, and at a stable body weight, then a mommy makeover may be perfect for you.

Your Mommy Makeover Consultation

At your consultation, you’ll meet with your plastic surgeon for a physical examination and a discussion of mommy makeover specifics. This includes the details of the operation, how you can prepare for the procedure, and what to expect in terms of recovery.

This is also where you will work with your doctor to design the ideal approach to address your specific needs. The following procedures can be included in your mommy makeover:

  • Tummy Tuck
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Reduction
  • Breast Lift
  • Breast Lift with Implants
  • Liposuction

“Dr. Freel has the absolute amazing gift of knowing what his patients need, all while granting them the desires of their heart. Before selecting Dr. Freel, I’d gone on a number of consultations with other surgeons both local and away. Dr. Freel gave me a sense of comfort that I’d not sensed from the others. He took the time to listen to my vision, allowed me to explain to him my concerns, and directed me as to what was a realistic outcome. I never felt belittled for my lack of knowledge in some areas nor did he dismiss my desires in an effort to show me that he was superior – as some doctors had shown. For round 1 of my surgeries I had a tummy tuck and breast lift. Round 2 consisted of an extension to the tummy tuck, back lift, implants, and skin removal under my arms. I was so impressed with Dr. Freel from consult to the “final” appointment. I use the term final in abstract terms because I know that if I have any issues in the future, I can always call on him. I even sent my mom to him to have her arms done! Oh, and the staff is incredibly helpful, kind, and available.
I would [and have], without hesitation, recommend Dr. Freel to anyone seeking genuine, talented, personable, trustworthy and customer/client/patient-centered care!! “


What Is a Mommy Makeover Like?

At the start of the surgery, general anesthesia will be administered. Once it has taken effect, your surgeon will make incisions according to the chosen procedures. These procedures will then be carried out, and sutures will be used to close the incisions.

Healing and Recovery

Since a mommy makeover consists of several procedures performed at once, one of its greatest advantages is that you’ll only need to go through one recovery period. This helps avoid multiple stretches of downtime.

While recovery time generally depends on the types of procedures you’ve chosen, you can expect around two weeks of healing time at home. Your doctor will give you instructions on how to care for incision sites, alarming signs to look out for, and how to take your prescriptions.

You will be required to come back for follow-up appointments to ensure that the healing process is going as expected. Stitches will be removed during these appointments.

How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?

The cost of a mommy makeover varies according to the specific procedures you will undergo. Find out the full price details from your surgeon during your consultation.
