Mommy Makeover Surgery in St. Louis, MO
Women often become dissatisfied with their physical appearance following one or more pregnancies or weight loss. Many women turn to plastic surgery to restore their physique, whether it is due to the development of excess fat and sagging skin or the loss of feminine curves.
Dr. Brian Porshinsky performs Mommy Makeover surgeries for women in St. Louis, Missouri.
What Is a Mommy Makeover?
The Mommy Makeover is a customizable collection of breast and body contouring techniques that combat the visible effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Because no two bodies look the same and women have different ideals regarding their physical aesthetic, no two Mommy Makeovers look the same.
If you are looking for subtle tightening and natural-looking results or dramatic curves, a Mommy Makeover with Dr. Porshinsky can help you achieve your goal.
Why Should I Choose Dr. Porshinsky for My Mommy Makeover?

What Are the Benefits of Mommy Makeover Surgery?
Women who undergo Mommy Makeover surgery achieve the following:
- A shapely, hourglass figure with feminine-looking curves
- Fuller and firmer breasts
- A flatter belly
- A more defined waist
- Lifted breasts
- Smoother contours
- Restored confidence
Am I a Candidate for Mommy Makeover?
While the name may suggest that motherhood is a prerequisite of the surgery, any woman who wishes to address her breasts and abdomen simultaneously can qualify for this combination surgery.
Candidates should be in good overall health, not smoke, have a BMI under 32, and have realistic expectations for their results. While a Mommy Makeover will not harm a future pregnancy, becoming pregnant after your Mommy Makeover will significantly impact the quality of your results. This is why we suggest women postpone this surgery until after they have finished having children.
How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
Because of the personalized nature of this procedure, every surgical session will be unique. Most patients can undergo their Mommy Makeover during one surgery; others may need to split their combination procedure into two or more surgeries. This will depend on the extent of your Mommy Makeover and the length of time it will take to complete.
Dr. Porshinsky and his team at Aria Cosmetic Surgery will review your options with you in detail during your consultation.
Usually, a Mommy Makeover includes two or more of the following options.
The breasts take a beating during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and similar changes can be seen after significant weight loss. Breast enhancement surgery is a standard part of Mommy Makeover surgery and can include breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, breast lift with augmentation, or breast reduction.
Fat commonly develops in new places during and after pregnancy. Lipo 360 is performed to reduce excess fat around the circumference of your midsection, including the abdomen, waist, flanks, and lower back. Liposuction can target localized fat pockets nearly anywhere on the body.
The tummy region goes through the most significant trauma during pregnancy and childbirth. This process often leaves the abdomen with loose skin, excess fat, and separated abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck surgery addresses all of these concerns to give you a slimmer and more toned appearance.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Much of the Mommy Makeover addresses the breasts and midsection, as these are commonly the most affected by the childbearing process. However, they are not the only areas that can benefit from body contouring.
While not always a typical part of a Mommy Makeover, a Brazilian Butt Lift can be performed during a Mommy Makeover to use the fat removed during your lipo 360. Dr. Porshinsky spent 2022 in Miami learning the latest BBL and other techniques. He has performed hundreds and hundreds of butt enhancement procedures with a 100% safety record. He knows how to inject even large volumes and shape your buttocks.
How Long Is Mommy Makeover Recovery?
After your surgery, the treated areas will be wrapped in compression garments that will assist with swelling, bruising, and blood circulation. You should wear these garments around the clock (except when showering) for as long as Dr. Porshinsky instructs you to do so.
Most patients need to take at least two weeks off of work and their daily activities. If you have young children at home, ensure you have someone there to help you with all the necessary chores and activities.
Pain medication will be prescribed and cold compresses can be used to help manage your pain.
When Will I See My Mommy Makeover Results?
Most women fully recover from their Mommy Makeover within a month. You will see your results form gradually, and swelling may subside more quickly in some areas than others.
The results will be long lasting; however, their longevity depends on how well you maintain them. Significant weight fluctuations and additional pregnancies can impact the quality of your results.
