One of Dr. Paul Papillion’s favorite procedures is a mommy makeover in Nashville. For those that do not know, a mommy makeover is a term used to describe a combination of procedures used to address changes in the postpartum mother. According to Dr. Papillion, a mommy makeover is the ultimate body contouring procedure because of the wide range of contouring that can be addressed to restore a woman’s figure.
Who Can Undergo a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is meant for mothers who have delivered a baby and want to get back their pre-pregnancy appearance. After childbirth, a new mother may observe sagging in the breasts, sagging skin on the abdomen and hips, and pockets of excess fat in numerous locations. This is why it is also referred to as a post-pregnancy procedure.
A woman who wants to correct all these issues and improve their appearance is an ideal candidate for a mommy makeover. The procedure is best for women who have finished with childbearing since this preserves the results. The patient needs to be in good overall health.
Which Procedures Are Included in a Mommy Makeover?
Typically surgeries performed on the breast and abdomen are the mainstays of the procedure. What type of procedures needed will of course depend on the concerns of the patient and their exam. Dr. Papillion, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, has amazing results on breast and body procedures.
The Initial Mommy Makeover Consultation
Before a date can be set for the surgery, a consultation will be needed. During this consultation, Dr. Papillion will evaluate your overall health and cosmetic concerns. The consultation is used to determine which procedures should be carried out. Dr. Papillion will listen to your concerns and desires, perform an exam, and make recommendations that best suit you.
Once a date is set for the mommy makeover, blood thinners and supplements should be stopped. Smoking must be stopped well before the surgery and should be avoided during recovery since it can lead to complications.
How Is a Mommy Makeover Carried Out?
All of the procedures of the mommy makeover are typically done together during one sitting. General anesthesia is usually chosen to carry out the surgery, since it is an extensive procedure.
Once the anesthesia has taken effect and the patient is unable to feel any pain or discomfort, incisions are made in key regions. The chosen procedures are then carried out. The breast tissues may be lifted to correct sagging, and an implant may be used to increase breast size. Liposuction may be used to remove excess fat, and a tummy tuck can be done to restore the shape of the abdomen.
Once the procedure is complete, the incisions are closed with sutures. The details of the recovery process vary from patient to patient and will be discussed during your mommy makeover consultation.

What Is Recovery Like?
You may need some downtime and recovery time after your mommy makeover surgery. Time off from work will be necessary. You will be given aftercare instructions and pain medication to manage any discomfort.
Depending on your treatment plan, Dr. Papillion may ask you to wear compression garments after your procedure. These elastic garments will help to control post-surgical swelling and will help skin better conform to the body’s new underlying contours.
It may take several weeks before all swelling and bruising disappears. You will also be given a time frame on when you can go back to your usual routine. Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercises for several weeks to ensure complete healing.
How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?
The cost of a mommy makeover varies from patient to patient, as it is tailored to address each unique patient’s specific cosmetic concerns. The total price will be affected by the techniques chosen to reshape and recontour your body, along with anesthesia fees and the total time needed to perform the surgery.
