Mommy Makeover

After childbirth and breastfeeding, many women are unhappy with their sagging breasts, loose stomach skin or extra fat pockets on their flanks, inner and/or outer thighs.  A mommy makeover is any procedure that combines some element of breast enhancement and abdominal contouring. Possible tummy procedures could include: abdominoplasty with or without liposuction, liposuction alone, or mini abdominoplasty with or without liposuction. For breast contouring, procedures include augmentation, augmentation with mastopexy, mastopexy alone, or reduction. Both silicone and saline implants can be used. Candidates for this surgery are most often women who have had multiple pregnancies, but massive weight loss patients also comprise a large part of Dr. Pautler’s mommy makeover population, even if they aren’t “mommies.” Recovering from both breast and body procedures at once to minimize time away from family and work is one of the main benefits of a mommy makeover.

Mommy Makeover Candidates

You may be considered a good candidate to have a mommy makeover if you identify with the following:

  • You are in good health overall
  • You have sagging and/or deflated breasts from pregnancy/breastfeeding
  • You have excess, loose skin on your stomach
  • You have pockets of fat on your thighs, buttocks and/or hips
  • You are at a healthy weight for your build
  • You are not planning on having more children
  • You are a non-smoker.  If you are a smoker, Dr. Pautler will strongly urge you to cease as soon as possible.  It is important for you to stop smoking at least 8 weeks prior to and 6 weeks after your planned surgery.  Cigarettes contain nicotine, a powerful substance that decreases blood circulation especially in the areas that need it the most:  surgical wounds.  Wound healing is slowed, infections risk is increased, and recovery from surgery may be prolonged.

Here’s what our clients have to say

"Dr. Pautler is an amazing person. I wanted to have a breast augmentation but was nervous. She took the time to fully explain everything to me. I never felt as if a question was stupid or not worth her time. I quickly realized that I had found the right doctor. My surgery went very well, thanks to the expert hands of Dr. Pautler. The first few days of my recovery were as expected. Then I noticed that my incisions were becoming increasingly itchy. On a Saturday morning, I called the number Dr. Pautler had given me. A little while later, she met me in her office. I was having a rare allergic reaction to the adhesive. She was able to treat me and told me to come into the office on Monday. I was very grateful for this weekend visit with her. Much to my surprise, I got a phone call the next day, from Dr. Pautler. It was a Sunday! She was calling to see how I was feeling. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. I wish more doctors were as caring and as compassionate as her.”

"I recently went to Dr. Pautler to have my first breast augmentation back in May 2017. Dr. Pautler is such an amazing women and surgeon. From the moment I walked into her office for my consultation to my last follow up appointment, every one in her office was so welcoming, professional, and made my experience so much better. She took a lot of time with me during our initial consultation to discuss all of my options. She was so honest with me from the get go and I instantly felt comfortable putting my personal appearance into her hands. I never once felt that she tried to pressure me into doing anything that I was not comfortable with. Her bedside manner is absolutely amazing...and I am a nurse who works on a post surgical unit and frequently see how surgeons do not always have the best bedside manner. The staff in her office are so friendly and remember you when you come in for all of your appointments...and that meant a lot to me that I was not just another patient. During my pre-op and post op stages at the hospital, all of the staff had great things to say about her. They often refer to her as "amazing", which made me feel so good! I am now completely healed from the surgery, and I could not be happier with my results. She made me feel so much better about my physical appearance and I have so much more confidence now thanks to her!”

"Worth the long drive. The local surgeons close to me have 2 hour long office waits, incompetent staff, change pricing and hospital locations at zero hour, and don't explain everything well. Dr. Pautler came recommended to me and I'm glad she was.”

"Wonderful doctor who is so caring! Having her perform my mommy makeover was the best decision of my life!! My body looks amazing thanks to her!”

"A lifetime of being thin and in shape and still... fat arms. At age 44 I was approaching 1,000 barre classes (yay!) and I told myself, if I still hate my arms after 1,000 barre classes, I will get the arm lipo. I had received quotes for the procedure twice before but chickened out - also my husband and even plastic surgeon has said 'you're thin and in great shape. You don't need it'”

"I was on the fence with going through a Breast Augmentation for a few years. There were obvious reasons on why I wanted one, but I knew that going through with this surgery would need to be done at the best time with the best doctor. After visiting a few doctors that I was uncomfortable with, someone I knew personally suggested trying her doctor, Dr. Pautler. I immediately called the office...”
