Mommy Makeover FAQs
If you are considering a mommy makeover to regain your pre-pregnancy figure, Dr. Gregory T. Mesna can review your questions and concerns during a personalized consultation at our Minneapolis, MN, practice. Most mommy makeover FAQs revolve around candidacy, treatment cost, and the types of procedures included. To ensure you make an informed decision about your mommy makeover, our team can take the time to review your goals, preferences, and lifestyle, as well as educate you about the treatment timeline. At Mesna Plastic Surgery, you can feel confident that you will receive the highest standard of care during all stages of treatment.
Which Procedures Are Included?
A mommy makeover is a combination of two or more body contouring procedures that are designed to address your unique aesthetic goals. To help restore a tighter, more youthful appearance, we can incorporate treatments such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, arm lift, thigh lift, cellulite removal, or liposuction. Dr. Mesna can effectively remove stubborn fat deposits, eliminate excess skin, and lift sagging breasts for a total transformation.
Can More Than One Procedure Be Performed on the Same Day?
Whether or not we can combine procedures varies from patient to patient, depending on their health and medical history, as well as the surgeries selected. Generally, it is possible to perform a breast and abdominal procedure during the same appointment. We can also often perform a facial and body procedure in a single visit.

How is the Recovery Process after a Mommy Makeover?
As a mommy makeover is a customized plan, the recovery timeline also depends on your unique treatment plan. If you are undergoing a full body lift, you can expect the healing period to be significantly longer than a single liposuction procedure or a breast augmentation.
Generally, we can provide patients with compression garments and prescribe pain medication to alleviate post-operative swelling and discomfort. Depending upon the type of surgery you undergo and the phase of your treatment, you can expect to be out of work for a few days to weeks. Our team can provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
Should I Get a Mommy Makeover If I Plan to Have More Children?
Surgeons generally recommend patients wait until they have finished having children before undergoing a mommy makeover, as pregnancy can undo cosmetic alterations. If you are not a candidate for this treatment, Dr. Mesna can recommend one of our other comprehensive procedures to help you achieve your goals.
What is the Cost of Treatment?
The overall cost of a mommy makeover will depend upon the types of procedures included in your treatment plan, the expertise of your surgeon, the anesthesia selected, and the number of post-operative visits. As each mommy makeover is unique, our team can review your aesthetic goals and provide you with more realistic expectations during your consultation.
How Should I Prepare for a Mommy Makeover?
Since you require rest for at least two days after a mommy makeover surgery, it is advised that you make arrangements for food, child care, and household chores before undergoing treatment. Patients should also prepare a a relaxed, stress-free environment for recovery. To ensure optimal results, we can provide you with pre-surgical instructions in advance.
