Seattle Mommy Makeover
There are so many rewarding aspects of motherhood, but there is one drawback: pregnancy noticeably changes most women’s bodies. To combat this, women are combining breast and body procedures, now commonly referred to as a mommy makeover. Seattle cosmetic surgeon Dr. Alex Sobel can help you recapture and restore your youthful, pre-pregnancy body.
Ensuring your safety in a mommy makeover
Choosing to have cosmetic surgery is a very personal decision—and it’s important that you feel safe, comfortable, and confident with the surgeon and practice you choose. At Anderson Sobel Cosmetic Surgery, we are fully committed to your safety and comfort.
Because a mommy makeover typically involves combining several surgical procedures, it’s critical that patients choose a doctor who operates in a facility with hospital-level safety measures in place. You and your family can rest assured knowing that our private operating suite is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Our surgery suite is well-appointed with your safety and comfort in mind.
In addition, Dr. Sobel is Cosmetic Surgery Patient Safety® certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
What does a mommy makeover procedure include?
It is safe for most patients to have both breast and body contouring in one operation. Some women will even add in some light facial rejuvenating procedures. In other words, a mommy makeover is all about what you want to look your best. Here are some of the most popular procedures you might consider including:
Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or genetics can cause the abdominal skin and muscles to sag and stubborn fat deposits to develop over time—concerns that can be nearly impossible to correct with diet and exercise alone. Mommy makeovers often include at least one of these safe and effective body contouring options:
- Tummy tuck to get rid of excess skin (we offer mini tummy tucks as well!)
- Liposuction to permanently remove stubborn areas of fat
- Fat transfer to contour curves with your own, natural fat
Breast surgery can successfully correct a variety of breast aesthetic concerns, such as small or deflated breasts, asymmetrical breasts, or underdeveloped breast tissue. Dr. Sobel excels in several breast surgery options, so whether you are looking for a volume boost with implants, seeking a light lift, or even a reduction, there is a breast enhancement option for you.
- Breast Augmentation to restore fullness
- Breast Lift or Breast Lift with Augmentation to bring the breast to a more youthful position
- Breast Reduction, for women with uncomfortably large breasts

Do I have to be done having kids before I get a mommy makeover?
You don’t have to be done having kids before you get a mommy makeover, but there is one caveat. While it is safe to become pregnant after having a tummy tuck, your results will be affected. So, if you plan to continue growing your family, it is best to save a tummy tuck procedure for after you are done having kids. In the meantime, you can choose any other procedures of the face, breast, and body that will enhance your confidence, and enjoy the results through future pregnancies.

Your mommy makeover recovery & results
Because it is a combination of several surgical procedures, recovery following a mommy makeover does take some time. Depending on the extent of your procedure, plan for to take at least two weeks off work. As a general rule of thumb, you can go by the recovery time of the most extensive procedure in your mommy makeover, as that will take the longest to heal. If you have young children, it is important to prepare for their care in addition to your own during this time.
You’ll need a couple of days after surgery to take it easy and let the effects of anesthesia wear off. Expect to lay down 90% of the time and walk around a little in between to promote good circulation and prevent the formation of blood clots. In most cases it’s fine to shower (but not bathe) 3 days after surgery. Just be gentle with incision sites and pat them dry when you’re done. You may be tempted to get back into your busy daily routine, but it’s important to keep your heart rate and blood pressure moderated for several weeks to avoid bleeding around incision sites, as well as modify muscle movements to protect healing results.
Recovery following cosmetic surgery can be an incredibly emotional process. Just as you should prepare yourself for your physical recovery, you should likewise have an idea about what to expect emotionally and mentally as your body heals and your final results take shape.
After your recovery, you can go out in public to flaunt your results as soon as you feel comfortable doing so. To keep your surgery under wraps, however, it’s best to keep the area out of sight until post-op bruising and swelling have gone away. Scars can appear bright pink for several months, but they are usually easy to conceal with cosmetic products if you desire. When cared for properly, surgical scars will continue to heal and fade beautifully over time.
It’s important to understand that while your results will look great within two to four months after surgery, they won’t be final for up to one year. Fortunately, the most dramatic changes occur in the first few months and are subtle thereafter.
