With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic
While pregnancy can leave excess skin in the abdomen, weakened muscles from childbirth, and deflated breasts from breastfeeding, this combination may also be found in women as they age, especially those with a history of weight fluctuations. A “mommy makeover” surgery is an individualized combination of surgical procedures to give back the breast size and shape and abdominal flatness you had at a younger, pre-pregnancy age.
Mommy makeovers are performed in our Raleigh plastic surgery center as outpatient procedures. Depending on your particular case, you will likely need some form of breast surgery and reshaping of your tummy with an abdominoplasty, with or without liposuction. However, mommy makeover surgeries are customizable, so other procedures can be considered. These are the most common procedures used:
After pregnancy and breastfeeding, you might be left with sagging breasts. A breast lift removes excess skin, reshapes the breast tissue, and lifts downturned nipples to restore a youthful contour. Breast augmentation or breast implants can be added to your lift if you also desire added volume. Women whose breasts have grown significantly can restore their smaller breasts and relieve back pain with breast reduction.
An abdominoplasty, with or without liposuction, removes loose skin from the abdomen and tightens abdominal muscles that may have been loosened during pregnancy. Removal of sagging skin can also remove stretch marks to restore smoother skin and enhance your contours. The addition of liposuction for fat removal can help women get rid of stubborn baby weight on the stomach and other areas affected by pregnancy, like the thighs, back, or arms.
Labiaplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure that reduces the size of enlarged labia. After pregnancy, the labial flaps and genital region might be stretched. Women feel self-conscious in intimate settings and may experience discomfort during physical activity.

The best candidates for a mommy makeover are women who are done having children and wish to restore their pre-baby bodies. Future pregnancies could cause loose, sagging skin and baby weight to return, which would reverse the effects of your mommy makeover procedures. Candidates should also be in overall good health with realistic expectations for their surgery.
Dr. Coan, located in Cary, NC, is an expert in breast and body surgery and can examine you and discuss what procedures would work best for you.
Recovery time and post-operational instructions will vary, depending on your chosen combination of procedures. In general, you should expect to take 1-2 weeks off work and avoid strenuous activity for 6 weeks. Make sure you have someone available to help you during the first few weeks since bending and heavy lifting (including picking up your child) should be avoided. Give your body time to rest and heal so that you can recover safely and achieve optimal results.
