Mommy Makeover Little Rock

Updated January 20, 2023

If you are struggling to regain your previous shape after having kids, you are far from alone and may want to consider a mommy makeover. Pregnancy and childbirth can make dramatic changes that often cannot be reversed with diet and exercise alone.

Like you, our patients eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly but still battle sagging breasts, stubborn fat deposits, and an abdomen that won’t flatten out no matter what! If you’re unhappy with changes such as these, we can help you get your body back the way you remember (or even a little bit better) with a mommy makeover.

What is a mommy makeover?

A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to address the effects of childbearing on the face, body, and breasts that can’t be overcome with lifestyle changes. It’s totally personalized to your needs—so really, a mommy makeover is whatever you want it to be.

The majority of patients choose a tummy tuck and breast enhancement. However, for some patients, a satisfying mommy makeover consists of a few touch-ups with liposuction and perhaps some injectables. Dr. Branman and his experienced team will help you determine your unique mommy makeover plan at a personal consultation.

“When my friend told me this office and doctor were the best of the best, they weren’t kidding. It just took one visit to know this was absolutely the right decision. I had a tummy tuck and breast augmentation and couldn’t be happier. The incisions look great…Dr. Branman and staff took such good care of me, they are like family now.”—Actual mommy makeover patient.

What procedures are in a mommy makeover?

Your mommy makeover is personalized to your needs to achieve your specific goals and can contain any number or type of procedures. In most cases, a mommy makeover is performed as a single operation, which saves you recovery time in the long run and allows you to make all your desired changes at once. However, in certain cases, Dr. Branman will recommend completing a mommy makeover in phases for the best results.

Breast Enhancement Options

Mommy makeover procedures often include a breast enhancement surgery. This can be a breast augmentation with implants, a lift, or a reduction, based on your individual needs and aesthetic goals.

Breast Augmentation or Breast Reduction

If you have lost breast volume, combining a breast lift with breast augmentation can be a great option to get fuller, firmer, and more youthful breasts. Conversely, if you desire lighter, smaller breasts, a breast reduction, which includes a breast lift, can be a very effective procedure. Our Little Rock patients who opt for these procedures are usually extremely pleased with the results.

Breast Lift

For those who have drooping or sagging breasts, a breast lift can restore a more shapely, uplifted breast contour. Breast lift surgery can also reduce stretched areolas and restore nipples to a more youthful, forward-facing position.

Body Contouring Options

Stretched or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti), which are so common after childbearing, can be tightened up with a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck can also remove excess, sagging skin and reshape the belly button to restore a flatter, firmer abdomen and waistline. For patients with extensive sagging skin and stretched muscles, a lower body lift may be a good option.

Stubborn fat pockets that resist diet and exercise can be addressed with liposuction. Dr. Branman offers several liposuction options, including VASER “hi definition” lipo for enhanced sculpting of smaller or muscular areas.

“Dr. Branman performed my tummy tuck 2 months ago…the second I met him, I knew I wanted him to be my surgeon…I tell everyone who inquires about my surgery that I would go through this 100x to have the experience and results that I have had. BONUS: he makes THE BEST belly buttons I’ve ever seen.”—Actual patient. Read more reviews.

Facial & Non-Surgical Options

If the stress of parenthood has left your face looking a little more haggard than you like, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Branman can discuss facial rejuvenation as part of your mommy makeover. This may include the quicker-recovery SmartLift facelift, Botox and filler injections, Ultherapy skin tightening, or laser skin resurfacing. Our med spa has a number of skin treatments that can give your skin a healthy glow and noticeable refresh in no time!

How much does a mommy makeover cost in Little Rock?

The cost of a Little Rock mommy makeover generally falls between $4,000 and $18,000. This is just a ballpark price range, as mommy makeovers are highly individualized procedure plans, and the cost will depend on the extent of your surgery procedures. At your personal consultation, our office will provide you with a comprehensive fee quote including all of the procedures you would like to have as part of your mommy makeover, surgeon’s fees, operating room cost, anesthesia, cost of breast implants and compression garments (if applicable), and any other associated costs.

Financing is available!

We offer several convenient financing options to help make it a little easier to pay for cosmetic surgery. Financing allows you to have your makeover treatment when you are ready and make monthly payments. We also frequently run specials on procedures that fall in the mommy makeover category. See our current specials.

How long is the recovery?

Our average mommy makeover recovery patient needs about 2 to 3 weeks off of work, and 6 to 8 weeks away from strenuous exercise (including lifting toddlers!). Exactly how much downtime you will need will depend on the procedures you have, the nature of your job, the age of your kids, and your natural healing rate.

We generally recommend patients get round-the-clock help at home for the first 1 to 2 weeks after surgery, particularly if they are having a tummy tuck and have small kids at home, as heavy lifting and straining are off-limits. If this seems a little overwhelming right now, don’t worry—we will go over the details of recovery at your consultation and help you plan out the post-op process at your pre-surgery appointments.

How long after having kids should I wait to have surgery?

It is never too late to have a mommy makeover after having kids, but it can be too soon. In general, Dr. Branman asks his patients to wait until they have finished breastfeeding, they have achieved a stable weight for several months, they are in good overall health, and the timing is good for their personal and family situation (i.e., they are able to take several weeks off of work).

Depending on the procedures you want, you may also consider waiting until you are finished having kids. Pregnancy after having surgery procedures is safe for you and your baby, but it is likely to undo your results to some extent. Both pregnancy and breastfeeding after breast augmentation can change the appearance of your breasts. During pregnancy, every woman’s breasts become temporarily fuller, stretching the breast tissue. After pregnancy, or after you stop breastfeeding, the stretched skin will likely cause your implants to sit a little lower on your chest.
