About the Mommy Makeover
Dr. George Kouris, a board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon, regularly meets with women who want their pre-pregnancy physique back. While childbirth is a miraculous, wonderful moment in a woman’s life, it inevitably will change the look, shape, and size of certain body parts — and could leave one feeling a little frustrated. The most exciting news is that it's achievable to once again attain a slim and taut appearance with the assistance of the mommy makeover surgery performed at Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery. This surgery uses a combination of fat removal and skin tightening to reshape the abdomen and breasts, and other affected body parts — basically any body part affected by weight gain or nursing can be addressed. Furthermore, nonsurgical treatments can be incorporated to repair surface imperfections, such as hyperpigmentation and discoloration, from the rapid stretching and fluctuation of the skin during pregnancy.

"I was looking for a cosmetic/plastic surgeon who had experience working with a high degree of vertical lines and loss of elasticity of the neck. My physician recommended Dr. George Kouris and I am so happy that I followed through. I recently had a neck and lower jawline lift. I’m in the process of healing and from what I can see, just in a short period of time, I am totally happy with the results. I can now hold my head up high with confidence and retain my self-esteem. Dr. Kouris’ demeanor put me at ease immediately from beginning to end. He had all the qualities I was looking for. Dr. Kouris is very knowledgeable, extremely capable, takes pride in his work, compassionate, caring, honest, warm, understanding, kind, a genius in his work of art, and most of all Dr. Kouris is GENUINE. If you’re thinking about having any form of cosmetic surgery Dr. Kouris is whom you want to see. You will find no other as qualified as he. Dr. Kouris is the ultimate best!

Ideal candidates for this surgery are females who have gone through childbearing and have tried to achieve a slimmer, tighter figure through a clean diet with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgical intervention is needed to once again have their pre-pregnancy body. If you are past childbearing and are feeling hopeless with the effects remaining on your body, such as deflated, sagging breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, or undesirable areas of pockets of fat in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, this procedure could be perfect for you. The overall goal of Dr. Kouris is to help you get back your pre-pregnancy shape so you can get back to living life without feeling self-conscious.
The mommy makeover procedure is a unique surgery tailored for women by Dr. Kouris based on the areas of concern to be enhanced. A variety of procedures can be considered together — the most popular treatments are a breast lift, breast implants, tummy tuck, and liposuction. These surgeries are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, lasting 3 – 7 hours, depending on the complexity. Also, a day-long stay in our on-site recovery suite may be needed. It is common to also incorporate nonsurgical methods, such as an injection or a laser treatment, to smooth facial wrinkles and diminish surface imperfections.
What to Expect
Once leaving the hospital, you will begin your recovery at home with rest. The overall recovery is generally a lengthy process. Walking will be difficult the first few days, and a thorough, at-home care protocol will be adhered to in order to make sure the incisions heal properly. Most women find the healing process can last around six months. Even while the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to resume a somewhat normal routine within several weeks. Exercise should be held off for about two months. In the end, the mommy makeover procedure at Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery can be life-changing for women, creating a newfound love for their new shape once again.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a mommy makeover cost?
Mommy makeover costs will vary greatly, depending on which procedures are part of your surgical plan. During your consultation, Dr. Kouris will need to develop your treatment plan and then he will be able to discuss possible costs. A mommy makeover is about rejuvenating your body and confidence after having children so it is best to concentrate on getting the results you want rather than shopping for the cheapest surgeon. Kouris M.D. Cosmetic Plastic Surgery takes several payment methods, and we can give you information on finding low-interest medical financing to make your mommy makeover more affordable.
How do I decide what to include in my mommy makeover?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Kouris, he will understand your needs and concerns before performing a physical examination. Following this, he can give you suggestions on what to include in your mommy makeover. Most women include breast surgery (an augmentation, lift, or both) along with a tummy tuck and liposuction.
What about nonsurgical treatments?
Childbirth and pregnancy are hard on your body, which is why nonsurgical procedures usually aren't enough to produce the results you want. In your consultation, Dr. Kouris will discuss both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. After listening to your concerns and goals, he will tell you about any nonsurgical procedures that he believes will help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Will I have scars?
Although a mommy makeover gives you a rejuvenated figure, it does leave surgical scars. Dr. Kouris will make every effort possible to create clean incisions that are as small as possible. Most scars will be placed so they can be concealed with swimsuits and underwear. When reviewing your post-surgical care instructions, Dr. Kouris or a member of his team will give you tips on scar care so your incisions heal properly.
What if I get pregnant again?
Ideally, you should hold off on getting a mommy makeover until your family is complete so your results aren't compromised. In most cases, all treated areas of your body are at risk for changing if you got pregnant again. Should you have another child after a mommy makeover, another surgery may be done to restore your results.
