What is a Mommy Makeover?

Childbirth takes a major toll on the body, and many mothers decide to have a mommy makeover in order to restore their body and confidence. As one of the most popular aesthetic surgeries in the world, the mommy makeover combines multiple procedures to improve areas that have been altered after having children or losing excess weight. A longtime specialty of our board-certified plastic surgeons, the mommy makeover is an ideal procedure for women who want dramatic improvement for their body’s shape and size or a complete transformation with contouring, sculpting, and enhanced definition. Following a consultation and evaluation, Dr. Ranzer will create a surgical plan that is personalized to your exact areas of concern. 

What Issues Can be Addressed?

  • Excessively stretched or loose skin
  • Distortion of the stomach and/or breasts
  • Love handles
  • An abdominal “pooch” 
  • Stubborn stretch marks
  • Sagging, deflated breasts
  • Loss of structure or strength in the abdominal muscles
  • Persistent fat left over from pregnancy

The Beautify at AMS Approach

to the Mommy Makeover

Our surgeon first performs hi-definition liposuction, body sculpting, and contouring procedures in order to loosen the skin and slim the body contour. This allows for skin removal and optimal body shaping in a single procedure. 

The skin will then be tightened with internal heating devices; VASER® ultrasound technology will be employed to heat underneath the skin to disrupt the fat and achieve high-definition sculpting, and fat grafting may be used to provide volume and lift in the breast area and to sculpt the arms, re-shape the buttocks, and/or rejuvenate the vagina.

Cellulite is also treated with Cellfina®, fat grafting, or injectables such as Sculptra® or Bellafill®.

What are the Benefits of a Mommy Makeover?

  • Only one operation and recovery, but the results of multiple procedures
  • Significant improvement all at once
  • An extremely customized surgery focusing on your exact areas of concern

After Surgery

Following surgery, mommy makeover patients—now equipped with a transformed figure and newfound confidence—should follow a monthly radiofrequency skin tightening treatment plan and customized skincare protocol to maintain their rejuvenated, sculpted, more youthful appearance.

Recovery and Results

Because every patient is different, with unique areas of concern, the recovery period and results will be different for each case. If you’re in the Chicago area and you’re interested in a mommy makeover, we can tell you exactly what to expect during recovery and when you will see results during your consultation with us.

What is the Cost of a Mommy Makeover in Chicago?

Because each Mommy Makeover is customized, the cost cannot be determined before your consultation. Each woman has different needs and ideals for her figure, so the cost of a mommy makeover can vary widely. However, there are some key factors to think with that will help give a price estimate ahead of time.

Mommy makeover costs depend on the procedures you require to attain your aesthetic goals for your physique, and what those procedures will entail. You’ll discuss these in detail during your consultation, and a treatment plan will be created for you that lays out exactly what your mommy makeover will consist of, and what your mommy makeover price will be. In Chicago, prices typically range between $5000 to $20,000 for this procedure.
