Over time, a woman’s body goes through some significant changes. Some changes are simply a matter of age, while others are due to pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover is a suite of plastic surgeries customized to your needs, designed to help you achieve a more fit and youthful appearance. Emmett Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO, offers mommy makeovers to improve your breasts and stomach areas simultaneously, improving your recovery time and reducing overall costs.
The Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
Your mommy makeover may include multiple breast or tummy procedures tailored to help you reverse the effects of time and pregnancy and address issues you cannot fix with diet alone. Some of the benefits of the mommy makeover include:
- A treatment plan that is individualized to meet your needs.
- A single surgery session limits your costs and your risk.
- A single recovery period that makes moving on with your normal life easier.
- An opportunity to work with your plastic surgeon to address multiple aesthetic goals.
Am I a Good Candidate?
A mommy makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan intended to reduce the signs of aging, particularly those associated with giving birth. However, a mommy makeover can be an excellent option if you want to change her shape and figure dramatically.
Can I Get a Mommy Makeover if I Have Not Had Children?
If you have not had children and do not plan to have children but want to make significant changes to your body, you may be an excellent candidate for a mommy makeover.
Should I Wait Until I Am Done Having Children?
While a mommy makeover does not pose any risk to future pregnancies, pregnancy and childbirth would likely undo some of the results of your mommy makeover. For this reason, we recommend waiting until you are through having children and have a family planning strategy in place.
How Old Do I Have to Be?
There is no age threshold for having a mommy makeover, though anyone under the age of 18 will need to have parental consent. To opt for silicone implants as part of breast augmentation, however, you must be at least 22 or older.

What Procedures Are Involved in a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is completely customizable. During your initial consultation, you can talk with Dr. Emmett and discuss specific surgeries that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Some of the most common procedures in a mommy makeover include:
Over time, your breasts may lose some of their volume due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or age. Dr. Emmett can enhance your breast volume with implants, allowing you to enjoy natural-looking, harmonious curves and confidently fill out your bikini top or blouses.
While breast augmentation addresses the size of the breasts, a breast lift addresses breast shape. With this procedure, Dr. Emmett can raise the breasts to provide a more youthful appearance while correcting issues such as a downturned nipple or an enlarged areola.
Breast Implant Revision
We see many patients who have had breast augmentation from other surgeons and are dissatisfied with their results. With breast implant revision, Dr. Emmett can carefully remove your current implants and replace them with new implants as you desire.
Oversized breasts can lead to physical discomfort, awkwardness, or difficulty finding clothing that fits properly. A breast reduction procedure can address each of these problems, providing you with breasts that look more proportional to the rest of your natural curves.
Pregnancy and childbirth often result in rectus diastasis, a weakening of the abdominal muscles that can lead to an extended belly. This cannot be remedied with diet and exercise but can be addressed with a tummy tuck, which repairs abdominal muscles, removes excess fat, and provides a tight, flat tummy area.
Liposuction involves the removal of excess fat and tissue from the body and can reshape nearly any body part. We often recommend it as part of breast reduction or a tummy tuck, but it can also help you remove excess fat from your arms, thighs, or elsewhere.
Meet Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Emmett
Dr. Jennifer Emmett is well-known throughout the Denver, CO, area for her clinical skill and approachable, down-to-earth manner. She is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which qualifies her to provide high standards of care, always promoting patient safety, comfort, and outcomes. Dr. Emmett is particularly well-known for her skill in achieving natural-looking breast enhancement, resulting in high levels of patient satisfaction.
The Procedure Process Explained
Your first appointment with Dr. Emmett will be a one-on-one consultation where you will discuss your cosmetic needs in a private, confidential setting. She will ask about your medical history, ensure that you are a good candidate for surgery, and present you with several treatment options to consider.
What Should I Do in Preparation?
At your consultation, Dr. Emmett will provide guidelines to help you prepare for surgery. This may involve abstaining from certain medications or supplements, which could complicate the healing process.
How Many Sessions Are Involved?
One of the main benefits of the mommy makeover is that it allows you to have multiple plastic surgeries in a single session, reducing your costs, your need for anesthesia, your risks, and your recovery time.
What Is Surgery Like?
Dr. Emmitt will give you both local anesthesia and IV sedation for your mommy makeover, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure while also promoting a safe and expedient recovery. The procedure usually takes several hours, and the final results are typically visible after a few months.
What Should I Expect in Terms of Recovery?
You should anticipate taking at least a week to rest and recover, which will mean enlisting someone to help you around the home. While you can expect some physical discomfort, prescription and over-the-counter pain medications can help alleviate these symptoms.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The results of your mommy makeover can last a a long time, assuming you maintain a healthy lifestyle, follow post-operative guidelines, and avoid any future pregnancies.
