Mommy Makeover Portland

A Mommy Makeover is a cosmetic procedure for women after one or more pregnancies. A woman’s body undergoes a tremendous transformation during childbirth. Many women want to regain their pre-pregnancy appearance. There are many options for women looking to be curvaceous again and get a tight body once more.

Before & After Results

But it’s not only for mothers either. Women who have lost a lot of weight can also use a Mommy Makeover to bring their bodies back to the way it used to be before the weight loss (or gain).

What does a Mommy Makeover Consist of?

A Mommy Makeover often combines breast surgery (breast augmentation, breast lift / breast reduction, breast lift with implants) and body contouring procedures (tummy tuck, liposuction, fat grafting). The four major procedures are the tummy (tummy tuck and liposuction), butt (buttock augmentation, fat grafting), thighs (thigh lifts), and breasts (breast lift, breast reduction, breast augmentation).

There are many advantages in combining several Mommy Makeover procedures and save time, cost and convenience (just one recovery period). It is important to discuss your plans with Dr. Bartholomew and which procedures are best for you.

There are four major areas that women are primarily concerned with:


Many women often feel unhappy with their midsection. During pregnancy, the stomach stretches, and the skin expands, which becomes more prominent if you have had multiple children. A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes the saggy, extra skin from your abdomen, giving you a more toned look. Liposuction is another option that targets excess fat in the stomach area.

The two halves of the abdominal muscles can be separated due to multiple pregnancies and substantial weight gain. This condition is known as diastasis recti and can be corrected through a tummy tuck procedure. By tightening your abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck can restore a more toned and fit appearance to your stomach.


There are many factors that affect your breasts, including weight gain (or loss), age, and pregnancy. A Mommy Makeover usually involves a breast enhancement to deal with the changes in your breasts. Saggy breasts means your skin has lost elasticity and your breasts are drooping in a deflated appearance. This is where a breast lift helps to reposition your breasts for a firmer and higher appearance and give you a rounder and more youthful look once again. The nipples are also resized during surgery.

Pregnancy and age leave women with less volume in their breasts. A Mommy Makeover gives you the opportunity to get the curves you’ve always wanted and get firmer breasts. A breast augmentation procedure uses implants for fuller and larger breasts. Fat transfer breast augmentation uses your own fat cells to naturally enlarge your breasts and transform into a fuller figure. Also known as fat grafting, this procedure begins with liposuction of a donor area like your hips or abdomen and injects the fat cells directly into the breast tissue. This generates a more round shape to your breasts with increased volume.

Some women opt for a breast reduction surgery to deal with overly large breasts that causes pain and feel restrictive. Having large breasts can make it difficult to find clothing that fits well and can make you feel uncomfortable. The procedure gets rid of excess tissue and skin for lighter and smaller breasts.


The Brazilian butt lift is the most popular buttock enhancement today because it uses fat grafting from one part of your body (like waist or thighs) and injected into the buttocks. Liposuction is used to get rid of fat cells from the donor area and slim you down in the process.

Liposuction is also utilized for women who want a smaller posterior. It sure makes putting on those jeans a lot easier! These procedures allow you to streamline your figure and give you a youthful appearance. Smartlipo is a laser energy technique that breaks up your fat cells while tightening up your skin. It works great in dense areas like the buttocks.

There is also a lower body lift for toning your entire body. This surgery is customized to your specific needs that can include parts of buttock enhancement, a thigh lift and a tummy tuck.


Perhaps the less well-known part of the Mommy Makeover package is facial surgeries. It offers an opportunity to preserve your natural beauty with options such as blepharoplasty, lip augmentation and fat transfer to the face. There are simple injections such as Botox and Dysport that can smooth out wrinkles. It doesn’t take much to make little adjustments to your face and refresh for a more youthful appearance.

Most of our Portland Mommy Makeover patients have one or more surgical procedures done at the same time. Combining the procedures lets you improve multiple areas in one surgery. You will only have to recuperate once.

Initial Mommy Makeover Consultation

Portland Mommy Makeover specialist Dr Sam Bartholomew

During your initial consultation, Dr. Bartholomew will listen to your goals, what you want to achieve and your concerns about the procedure. He will evaluate your medical history and discuss your situation, including whether you plan to have more children. It is important to be finished with childbearing as a Mommy Makeover can affect having more children.

The consultation allows you to ask questions about your surgery and how it will improve your life. There are many options available to you and a number of procedures can be done at the same time.

Mommy Makeover Procedure

What you will go through really depends on what you choose as part of your Mommy Makeover. Many women combine at least two procedures from a tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, vaginal rejuvenation or a Brazilian butt lift.

Mommy Makeover Recovery

After your surgery, expect to feel some discomfort depending on what procedures you end up choosing for your Mommy Makeover. Dr. Bartholomew can prescribe medication to help with pain and reduce the risk of infection.

You may need to wear a support bra or an elastic bandage to help with the swelling and support your breasts. A compression garment can also deal with bruising. It takes several weeks for the swelling to dissipate and for you to see the results of your procedures.

Ultimately, a Mommy Makeover will enhance your appearance and get your self-confidence back. You will discover a new look, feel more comfortable in your clothes and be at ease with your body creating a satisfying change in your life.

Mommy Makeover Results

Patients can expect to see initial results from their Mommy Makeover within a few weeks to months after surgery, as swelling and bruising gradually subside. However, full results may take several months to a year to fully manifest as the body heals and adjusts to the surgical changes. To maintain the results of their Mommy Makeover over the long term, patients are advised to adhere to a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet. Additionally, it's essential to avoid significant weight fluctuations, as these can impact the outcome of the procedures.

Patients should refrain from engaging in strenuous activities or heavy lifting during the initial recovery period to allow proper healing. It's important to follow all post-operative instructions provided by their surgeon, including wearing compression garments as directed and attending follow-up appointments. While scars may initially appear noticeable, they will gradually fade over time with proper care and may be concealed with clothing or makeup. By following these guidelines and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, patients can enjoy the long-lasting benefits of their Mommy Makeover results for years to come.

How much does a Mommy Makeover cost?

The cost of a Mommy Makeover depends upon several factors, including the specific combination of procedures chosen to address the individual's needs, the surgeon's expertise, and the practice's geographic location. Typically encompassing surgical fees, which incorporate the surgeon's professional fee, along with fees for the surgical facility and anesthesia, the overall cost varies depending on the complexity of the surgery and any additional services required. It's essential for patients to have an initial consultation with the plastic surgeon to discuss their goals, understand the breakdown of costs, and explore potential payment options or financing plans to ensure transparency and financial readiness for the procedure.

Mommy MakeoverFrequently Asked Questions

What is the best age for a Mommy Makeover?

The ideal age for a Mommy Makeover varies for each individual. It's generally recommended to consider the procedure after completing childbearing and achieving a stable weight, typically in the late 20s to 50s. However, the timing ultimately depends on personal circumstances and goals, which can be discussed during a consultation with Dr. Bartholomew.

Should I be at an ideal weight for a Mommy Makeover?

It's advisable to be close to your ideal weight before undergoing a Mommy Makeover to optimize results. While the procedure can address excess skin, stubborn fat, and other concerns, achieving a healthy weight beforehand can enhance the outcome and reduce risks associated with surgery.

Is a BBL included in a Mommy Makeover?

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is not typically included in a standard Mommy Makeover procedure. However, it can be combined with other surgeries if desired, depending on the patient's aesthetic goals and Dr. Bartholomew's recommendations. During your consultation, you can discuss the possibility of incorporating a BBL into your customized treatment plan.

How long does a Mommy Makeover last?

The results of a Mommy Makeover are intended to be long-lasting, providing you maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight. While aging and natural changes to the body may occur over time, the improvements achieved through surgery can be enduring. It's essential to follow post-operative care instructions and attend regular follow-up appointments for optimal maintenance of your results.
