Mommy Makeover in St. Augustine, FL

A mommy makeover is a comprehensive procedure that can help women regain their pre-pregnancy physique, reversing many of the changes that childbirth causes. Dr. Anh Vu offers mommy makeovers and other body sculpting procedures to residents of St. Augustine, Jacksonville, Palm Coast, and Daytona Beach.

What is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is a collection of cosmetic procedures that addresses changes in the body that occur as a result of pregnancy and childbirth. This treatment typically targets areas including the breasts, abdomen, waist, and buttocks. A mommy makeover can include a number of different treatments including breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).

How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?

At Anh Vu, M.D., every mommy makeover begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Anh Vu. During this consultation, Dr. Vu carefully plans out the surgery based upon the patient’s aesthetic goals. Body sculpting procedures can create long-term, life-changing results, so he spends a substantial amount of time discussing the procedure with the patient to ensure that they achieve the results they desire. Dr. Vu is incredibly meticulous during surgery, which will vary depending on the procedures involved in a given patient’s mommy makeover. All procedures will involve precisely placed incisions that allow Dr. Vu to access the parts of the body that require treatment. In most cases, there are multiple options for incision locations so that the patient can minimize any visible scarring that remains after treatment. The mommy makeover typically includes removing excess skin and fat from various areas of the body, and may also include breast implants. All mommy makeovers are performed under anesthesia so that patients remain comfortable throughout treatment.

What Can I Expect After My Mommy Makeover?

Mommy makeovers are comprehensive procedures that involve a significant recovery period. Patients can expect swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the treatment areas for as long as a month after treatment. However, the exact length of recovery and required downtime will depend on the treatments involved in your mommy makeover. During recovery, we recommend that patients take at least a week or two off of work and get as much rest as possible. Following your procedure, Dr. Vu will review instructions for specific post-surgery care and discuss the timing of any follow-up appointments.

How Long Do the Results from a Mommy Makeover Last?

When performed by an experienced and qualified surgeon like Dr. Anh Vu, the results from a mommy makeover can last for years and look completely natural. However, these procedures do not prevent further changes that may occur due to aging, weight gain, or future pregnancies.
