A woman’s body can be permanently altered by pregnancy and childbirth, but a mommy makeover at Dr. Paresi of Dr. Robert J Paresi, Jr. MD in Chicago can help restore and rejuvenate the body. A mommy makeover combines cosmetic surgeries for liposuction, skin lifting, and techniques for tightening based on the woman's areas of concerns after their pregnancy. Commonly included surgeries include breast rejuvenation, liposuction and lifting to the stomach, hips, and thighs, but each mommy makeover is customized by plastic surgeon Dr. Paresi to include the surgical and nonsurgical procedures that fit with the patient's needs and concerns. A mommy makeover helps a woman regain her body and confidence after having children.
The mommy makeover procedure is uniquely tailored to each patient depending on what body part they want to improve. In most cases, the breasts and tummy are addressed together (though not always). The conditions addressed during surgery, and the surgical technique used will vary.
- Conditions caused by pregnancy: Loss of volume and/or breast tissue, sagging and/or drooping, excess skin (ptosis), breasts that have become too large.
- Surgeries to consider: Breast augmentation with implants, breast lift, breast augmentation with a lift, breast reduction surgery.
- Conditions caused by pregnancy: Excess fat and/or persistent bulge in the abdomen, sagging and loose skin, stretch marks and other unsightly skin irregularities.
- Surgeries to consider: Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction of the abdomen.
- Conditions caused by pregnancy: Sagging skin and excess fat in the buttocks, hips and thighs.
- Surgeries to consider: Lower body lift including liposuction and skin tightening of the buttocks, hips and thighs.

I also lacked fullness on my breast & were very saggy, Dr.Paresi gave me my confidence back. The first week was rough, but tolerable. I was given exparel at the time of the procedure so that did help with the after pain. Dr. Paresi answered my questions in a timely matter when i emailed him after my procedure, as well as the after care has been great. The staff, especially Kim made me feel very comfortable before & after the procedure.
I highly recommend Dr. Paresi and his staff. I couldn’t have asked for better care or results from the front office staff to the nurses and Dr. Paresi himself. I have been treated with the same high-level of attentiveness and care whether I was in for botox or a mommy makeover. I couldn’t have asked for better results- all due to Dr. Paresi’s skill as a plastic surgeon and attention to detail.
Dr. Paresi and his staff are absolutely amazing. I had a full mommy makeover and it turned out awesome. They were always available for questions and they made me feel comfortable about having the procedure. I am so thankful for them. If I could give them more stars I would. Thanks you so much Dr. Paresi. I appreciate you!

All mommy makeovers are performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. Depending on how many techniques are combined, the surgery could last multiple hours. It is common for patients to have a short hospital stay with this surgery. Most women will require a full month to recover, but many will be able to return to work within 2 weeks. The results will reveal themselves in multiple stages as the breast implants settle into their natural placement and the incisions begin to heal. It generally takes a full year for all of the changes to make their final appearance.

Mommy Makeover FAQs
Is It Safe?
There are always risks to consider when contemplating surgery. When procedures are combined, those risks can increase. Therefore, it is important to find an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is skilled in performing multiple procedures in one setting. Ultimately, a combination procedure can have numerous benefits, including only having to undergo surgery once — which means only one recovery and one fee.
What If I Get Pregnant?
In a perfect world, women would wait to have a mommy makeover until after all pregnancies have been completed so the surgical results are not compromised. Generally, any body part that has been lifted or tightened would be at risk for stretching out if a subsequent pregnancy were to occur.
What About Stretch Marks?
If stretch marks exist on an area of the body (i.e. breast, tummy, etc.) that is going to be lifted and tightened, they may be removed when the excess skin is trimmed away. For any stretch marks left behind, as well as any other skin irregularities that may exist, there are skin-rejuvenating techniques that can help fade and remove these imperfections.
Will I Have Scars?
Scarring will occur with almost any cosmetic procedure. However, every effort is made to place and close the incisions carefully so that scarring is minimized. Scarring eventually fades into faint lines and can be concealed by undergarments and bathing suits. Most patients feel that the physical results following a mommy makeover far outweigh the scarring left behind.
