So What Exactly Is a “Mommy Makeover”?


mommy makeoverPerhaps you’ve heard of the term “Mommy Makeover” before, but do you know exactly what that entails? What if a plastic surgeon’s office told you it’s, well, whatever you want it to be?

For over 14 years, Dr. Robbins and the team at Des Moines Plastic Surgery in West Des Moines have been ‘making over’ the term “Mommy Makeover” one patient at a time.

Create Your Own Mommy Makeover

In the realm of cosmetic plastic surgery, a “Mommy Makeover” traditionally is considered a combination of surgical procedures to address areas that may have been affected with pregnancy and aging. These surgeries commonly include breast augmentations and lifts (mastopexy), tummy tucks (abdominoplasty), and liposuction. A mom may have the mindset that ‘getting her body back’ is only attainable through surgical procedures. Des Moines Plastic Surgery is committed to offering patients a variety of both surgical and non-surgical solutions. This has been a unique element to the practice and benefit to patients, who receive transparent, realistic options for their goals.

An example of this is during a complimentary consultation, a patient interested in a “Mommy Makeover” might have questions about a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, or more. Dr. Robbins and his team assesses each patient’s desired results, determines if they are a good candidate, and makes surgical and non-surgical recommendations from there. Unique to Des Moines Plastic Surgery is their non-surgical aesthetic practice, Coachlight Clinic & Spa, where patients can receive less and non-invasive options. A patient may initially be interested in liposuction, however, if they are a better candidate for CoolSculpting, a non-surgical fat reduction treatment, they have the opportunity to move forward with the treatment and have the confidence this is a good option as it was recommended by a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Between the two practices, a “Mommy Makeover” becomes a patient and provider-driven term built around patient satisfaction and realistic results. One Mommy Makeover may include a breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Another Mommy Makeover may be a Botox treatment and CoolSculpting. And another Mommy Makeover may be a ½ day spa package that includes a massage, a facial, and some much needed “me time”.
