Mommy Makeover Scottsdale, AZ
What is a Mommy Makeover?
Motherhood can be one of the most exciting moments in a woman’s life. There can also be dramatic changes to their bodies as well. The effects of pregnancy can leave undesirable features behind, including stretch marks, loose skin, and excess fat.
Dr. Marc Malek offers mommy makeover surgery in Scottsdale to help his patients reach any cosmetic goals they may have. The mommy makeover is a popular treatment that new moms turn to in order to recover their youthful pre-pregnancy bodies.
The toll that pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can have on a new mommy’s body can be devastating in emotional and physical ways. Even with the proper diet and exercise, oftentimes it is near impossible to restore one’s body. But with a mommy makeover it is possible.
Benefits of a mommy makeover

Post-Pregnancy Physical Effects
- Stretching of the stomach muscles
- Stretching and loosening of the skin in the areas of the breasts, thighs, abdominals
- Excess fat deposits in the belly, back and thighs
- Stretch marks on the breasts, belly and thighs
Following pregnancy, breasts can begin to show a loss of volume and loosening skin. Dr. Malek specializes in breast augmentation and breast lift procedures as part of a mommy makeover in Phoenix to tighten and makeover the area and help a new mommy recover a more appealing look. He minimizes the amount of incisions and only makes the smallest ones. His treatments can deliver a more firm, balanced, and voluminous appearance to the breasts.
For patients experiencing stubborn fat in the abdomen and waist areas, tummy tucks can provide the desired solution. During this procedure, the muscles become tightened and accommodate a more firm tummy. Patients can compare their waistline and see the difference this cosmetic makeover procedure has made to their bodies.
Bring Back Your Body with a Mommy Makeover
We love our children above all, but the damage pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can do to the body is usually a shock. A once youthful, trim figure now appears loose, saggy, and may have unsightly stretch marks and excess skin. Although women’s bodies are built to give birth, the toll it takes on the body can be truly devastating. Why not bring back the pert, trim, fit look you had prior to giving birth? We can help.
Since every patient is different, you’re able to choose your own custom treatment when it comes to the mommy makeover at our Scottsdale facility. This surgery is planned and developed to restore the areas of the body that have been damaged or distorted. Your breasts may have begun to sag or appear deflated, and may have never returned to the original volume, size, and location on your chest. Your tummy may now be covered with stretch marks and sagging, droopy skin that you feel you must hide. If you are careful about what you wear, and only dream of putting back on a bikini – why not take steps to restore your body? Modern surgical techniques truly make it possible.
What Areas Can I Treat with a Mommy Makeover?
- Breasts. You may require a breast lift or breast augmentation, or both if your breasts have lost volume, shape, or that pert youthful look after breastfeeding.
- Abdomen. You may require a tummy tuck procedure to remove excess skin, which can often reduce the appearance and size of stretch marks, while creating a firmer, tighter tummy area. If your abdominal muscles appear split, a procedure can be performed to resolve the problem.
- Thighs, buttocks, flanks. In some cases, unwanted fat deposits can be eliminated with liposuction. This is not a weight loss procedure, but can remove the natural fatty deposits a woman’s body stores during the childbearing years.
Looking Good Means Feeling Good
Our mission is to help mothers restore their feeling of confidence and wellbeing by performing various procedures that restore and rejuvenate the body after pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. It is amazing to observe how much more confident and secure our patients feel when their bodies are restored to a pre-pregnancy appearance – or even better than before. We do it all; we are proud to work with mothers throughout the area, and to help them look good, and feel great.
Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty with Liposuction
The skin and muscle tissues in the abdominal areas stretch during pregnancy and will result in loose, flabby skin. Even after weight loss, training and dieting, the skin may retain this loose and unsightly appearance. An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, can revitalize your stomach and abdominal area by removing excess skin, tightening the inner walls of your stomach muscles, and removing unwanted fatty deposits through liposuction, creating a tighter, flatter, and more attractive abdominal profile. In Scottsdale, for our mommy makeover procedure, we use liposuction during the tummy tuck portion which allows for the removal of excess fat that develops during pregnancy and handles the stubborn areas that are unaffected by dieting and exercise.
Breast Lift, Breast Augmentation, and Reduction
Mastopexy, or breast lift, reconstructs the breast in such a way that excess fat and skin is removed, thus tightening breast tissue, achieving a lifted appearance, which recovers an appearance similar to that of your pre-pregnancy, youthful breast contours. The mastopexy will also treat the tissue surrounding the nipple, or areola, which can frequently become stretched due to the changes experienced by a new mommy.
If you desire fuller, larger breasts, the surgeon can perform a breast augmentation along with the lift. This cosmetic enhancement procedure uses either saline or silicone breast implants to create a bust line that is, perhaps, larger and fuller than the patient's pre-pregnancy breast size. Once again, the option of breast augmentation should be discussed with your doctor in your consultation prior to surgery to determine the best course of treatment during your makeover.
Breast reduction surgery can be a valuable option for women experiencing discomfort due to large breasts, these can cause back pain and discomfort from childbirth or a pre-pregnancy condition. Reduction mammaplasty is a procedures that is designed for breast reduction by removing excess skin, fat, and tissues of the breast, alleviating any pain or discomfort.
Regardless of the combination of procedures you choose to have, the ultimate goal of a mommy makeover is to achieve a tighter stomach, fuller, higher breasts and recover the body you had pre-childbirth.
A healthy body can improve your well-being and support your confidence, which can be a much needed boost for a new mommy adjusting to the demands of having a baby. As Dr. Malek is one of the top providers of the mommy makeover he will help you reach your cosmetic goals to help you look and feel good.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
How Long Does a Mommy Makeover Take?
When it comes to having a mommy makeover, the procedure length depends on what areas you are treating. It is common for moms to want to address areas of concern such as their breasts, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, but it may not be necessary for every person. The number of areas you are treating will have a direct effect on the amount of time the surgery will require. The idea of a mommy makeover is to make the most of your time in the operating room, completing everything in one surgery. Most mommy makeovers will take an average of four to six hours.
Do I Have to Do All the Procedures to Have a Mommy Makeover?
Pregnancies are different for each mom, and therefore, the results of how quickly your body bounces back will be different. You may be one of the women who pregnancy hits hard, and you may want to undergo the full scope of mommy makeover procedures. Maybe you just have some loose skin around the abdomen area and only want to restore a taut, fit tummy, along with a breast lift. The choice is yours and will depend on what you want to accomplish.
Should I Wait Until I am Done Having Children Before Having a Mommy Makeover?
Anyone can have a mommy makeover and still have children. However, pregnancy is hard on the body, and additional children will most likely alter the positive results of your mommy makeover. To ensure lasting results, it is recommended that you wait until your childbearing years have come to an end before considering this procedure.
What Should I Expect After the Procedure?
A mommy makeover is an outpatient procedure. You will be able to recover in the comfort of your own home. Depending on the specific procedures in your makeover, you can expect to experience some soreness, swelling and bruising. Your surgeon will advise over the counter or prescription medication as needed to ensure your comfort. You will be limited to what you can lift and will need to restrict your activities for up to six weeks.
How Long Until I Can See Results?
Your body will need time to heal, so your rejuvenated look will slowly be revealed as you recover. You will experience swelling in your breasts and abdomen for several weeks. This is a natural part of healing and will improve gradually. Although you will continue to heal and see improvements over time, optimal results will be noticed around the three-month mark.
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Because Dr. Malek’s mommy makeovers are a very fluid and adaptive procedure that is tailored from patient to patient, an exact cost is given after a personal consultation with him. A patient whose body has been greatly impacted by pregnancy and who wishes to treat the breasts, abdomen, thighs and the buttocks should typically expect to pay several thousand dollars. The final price of the procedure (given after a personal consultation) includes all related expenses including anesthesia, hospital or surgical facility fees, your surgeon’s fee, and medication.
How Should I Plan for My Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is surgery, and with any surgery, you will need time to recover. Plan on taking as much time off work as you can to be able to rest comfortably at home. Two to four weeks is advised. You will need to have someone drive you home and stay with you throughout the night. You will still be medicated and might need assistance getting around your home for the first 24 to 48 hours.
