Richmond’s #1 Mommy Makeover Center
One of the newer terms talked about in plastic surgery circles is the “Mommy Makeover.” Richmond Surgical Arts has been helping take care of mothers for many years with our full-service plastic surgery options.
Get Started With Mommy Makeover
Mommy Makeover – Procedure Overview
We understand that as a mother, you devote an incredible amount of time and energy raising your children. In fact, as your children get older, your responsibilities and commitments seem to ever increase.
Mommy Makeover may be your solution!
When we look at women who’ve come to the office to talk about a mommy makeover, we can divide people into different body types. We know there’s the ectomorph, the endomorph, the mesomorphs. So everyone is going to have a little bit different body type, and what that means is that we’re going to address different things for different people. So everyone’s going to have a little bit of a different body, everyone’s going to have a little different shape, and there’s going to be things that each person wants to improve that may be different from another.
But classically, we’re going to be looking at doing something for their breasts to lift them, and doing augmentation, mastopexy procedure. We’re typically going to be doing something to the tummy to tighten those loose muscles, and do a tummy tuck, and there’s different kinds of tummy tucks, and it’s not a one-size-fits-all operation. And I can offer each individual person, the tummy tuck that fits their body type and their look, because it’s not a one-size-fits-all procedure. You have to tailor to each body type, knowing that you want to keep the scar low, knowing that you want to keep a nice looking belly button. So we follow those goals to give everyone the look they’re looking for.
In terms of liposuction, we’re usually doing some liposuction, sometimes on the waist, sometimes the inner thigh, sometimes on the saddlebag lateral thighs, sometimes on the inner thighs or even on the back, what we call the lumbar or the low back area, on the backside. Sometimes that’s part of it too. So it really just depends upon what areas that you need to be addressed.

MOMMY MAKEOVER – Ideal Weight and Weight Loss For Tummy Tuck
People are often interested in losing weight and having a tummy tuck. And they come into the office and some people know that they need to lose some more weight, some people are uncertain how much weight they need to lose. And so, this is going to be just a brief overview of weight loss prior to tummy tuck. We know that a tummy tuck removes extra skin. We know that it tightens the muscle and we know it removes extra fat, but we really want people to be within about 10 pounds of their goal weight. Everyone has a different goal weight, but the key really is, is there as fat that can be stored inside the body cavity called intra-abdominal fat. And I can’t remove that. It’s not accessible to liposuction, it’s not accessible for surgical removal. And so patients need to understand that they really need to do their part first and get close to their goal weight because if you are not close to your goal weight, I can’t achieve the best result for you.
And I will tell someone that, I’ll say, “Yeah, I think we’re close, but if you’re going to lose another 10 pounds or 15 pounds, you probably should do that first. Because what that will allow is for me to take out some extra skin, tighten your muscles a little more, and ultimately your result will be better.” If I said, “Hey, go ahead and do it now.” And then you lost 15 to 20 pounds, what’s going to happen? You’re going to now have some loose skin and your muscles aren’t going to be as tight and ultimately your result won’t be as nice.
