Motherhood is one of the most rewarding jobs in life, but there’s no doubt it can take a toll on the body. With a Mommy Makeover procedure, you can restore your pre-pregnancy body through a combination of different cosmetic enhancement options. Whether you are unhappy with stubborn fat deposits, loose abdominal skin, a deflated breast appearance, premature signs of facial aging, or other aesthetic concerns, a Mommy Makeover from our plastic surgeons at Richmond Aesthetic Surgery can help you feel beautiful with natural-looking enhancement results.
The Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
If you are a mother, you have likely been required to make a number of sacrifices; however, your appearance does not have to be one of them. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of a number of cosmetic enhancement options designed to address the effects that pregnancy and raising children can have on your body. Mommy Makeover procedures can be very beneficial for women who experience:
- A sagging or drooping appearance in the breasts due to excess, inelastic skin
- A loss of volume in the breasts
- Excess skin in the abdominal area
- Fat deposits that can appear in a variety of body areas
- Stretch marks along the abdomen
- Wrinkles and fine lines along the face
Dr. Zemmel or Dr. Dassoulas will meet with your for an initial consultation to talk about your goals and answer any questions you may have. Together, you and your surgeon will come up with a customized treatment plan with options that can give you a comprehensive Mommy Makeover.

Mommy Makeover Procedures
A Mommy Makeover can include a variety of enhancement options that are performed in either one procedure or over several visits. Popular treatment options include:
Following pregnancy and breastfeeding, it is normal for the breasts to possess excess skin, causing them to droop or sag. Through breast lift surgery, the breasts can be positioned back to a more youthful location on the chest as excess skin is removed and the remaining tissue is tightened.
If you have lost breast volume following pregnancy, you may benefit from breast augmentation. With the addition of breast implants, our surgeons can restore the lost fullness for an improved contour and size.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Throughout pregnancy, the abdominal muscles are stretched and can even be pulled apart, which can lead to poor postpartum skin laxity that cannot be restored through exercise. With the tummy tuck procedure (also known as abdominoplasty), these muscles are rejoined and excess skin is reduced, giving you the flatter, more fit-looking abdominal appearance you desire.
Dr. Zemmel performed my breast augmentation and tummy tuck and did a fantastic job! I had 2 kids which left my stomach and breast really hurting. Dr. Zemmel completely rejuvenated my body and I am forever grateful. I would recommend him to anyone!*
*Individual Results May Vary
While diet and exercise can help you lose much, if not all, of the baby weight, you may find areas of stubborn fat that won’t seem to budge. This is common in the arms, legs, abdomen, love handles, and neck. Liposuction can remove these unwanted fat deposits for a more toned figure.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing can improve a variety of concerns affecting the color and/or texture of your skin. Through this advanced laser technology, you can improve sun damage, brown spots, and other signs of aging for a rejuvenated and overall more refreshed appearance.
Cosmetic Injectable Facial Rejuvenation
Cosmetic injectables can rejuvenate your facial appearance by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as restoring lost volume in the lips and cheeks. Through these cosmetic treatments, you can take years off your appearance without the need for surgery.
Mommy Makeover Recovery
Since Mommy Makeovers often involve a number of different procedures, recovery information will depend on the type of options chosen and how many are performed. Our plastic surgeons will give you precise details, regarding what you can expect during recovery once you have decided on your treatment plan.
