A mommy makeover is a cosmetic procedure most commonly relevant after pregnancy that revitalizes areas of the body that change due to weight gain and skin stretching. Mom’s that have not been able to attain the pre-pregnancy look they desire, even after extensive diet and exercise, will benefit greatly from this procedure. A mommy makeover typically includes a breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction cosmetic surgery. In addition, in some cases, labiaplasty is also incorporated.

During your consultation, our talented staff will create a personalized plan for your aesthetic goals and go into detail about the advanced surgical techniques that will be applied.

Mommy Makeover Reviews
"I never thought I would be someone who would have plastic surgery, but after 3 pregnancies it was necessary. :) I was referred to Dr. White by a coworker. He did an excellent job!!! I am thrilled with my results. My confidence is better, my marriage is better; it was well worth every penny. I would do it all over again in a second. His staff is amazing and is there for your every step of the way. If you ever want to have any cosmetic surgery you need to give them a call. You will stop looking after your visit. Everything they said they would do they did and more. Love them all!!!"- J.M. / Citysearch / Dec 05, 2014
"I have been a RN for 24 years and I am very particular about who I choose to operate on me. Once I had decided to have my abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), I drew up my own question sheet and researched multiple cosmetic surgeons. I was flying home and while perusing the American Way magazine, I saw Dr. White?s information as the best plastic surgeon?, so I had to call to find out more information. My first phone call lasted approximately 10-20 minutes with Penny and she pretty much explained the entire procedure. She answered questions that I had and provided information that I had not even thought about. She also explained Dr. White?s philosophies regarding the procedure, pre- op care, and post- op care. When I got off the phone, I was 98% sure that I was going with Dr. White. I scheduled my consultation within the same week. My consult with Dr White was very informative and long (approx 2 hours). Upon leaving my consult, I was 100% sure that I had found my cosmetic surgeon. I had 2 previous liposuction procedures that I was not content with and I wanted a better look to my abdomen. I knew that I wanted to have my tummy tuck, so my biggest obstacle was making sure that I was choosing the right person for the best outcome. Dr. White showed me multiple pictures of his work and they all looked great. I loved his philosophy of thinking of all things that could go wrong and doing the things necessary to prevent them. Dr White performed my tummy tuck approx 4 months ago and I am feeling fabulous. I was inpatient for a couple of nights and my care was great. Through the whole post op process, I experience minimal pain. I had on pain pill through the whole process and I had no complications because Dr. White had a pre-op and post-op routine in place and it works. My results are awesome. I love the flat tummy! I can now wear clothes that accent my waist and not worry about the rolls around my middle. I had such a great experience with Dr. White, that I consider him to be my personal plastic surgeon. I plan on going back for another step to my mommy makeover and I would not consider anyone else. I highly recommend Dr. White for any cosmetic procedures. Dr. White and the ladies in his office are AWESOME!!! They are very knowledgeable and very helpful. I would not go to anyone else for my cosmetic procedures."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Jun 08, 2016
"After doing some research, I came across Dr. White. When I went for a consultation and met him, I was convinced he would be the one I would trust with my mommy makeover. He explained everything to me in great detail and has an awesome personality. His staff is also very friendly and is always ready to answer any questions you may have. I love the fact that they get me in and out of the office very quickly every time I go. Dr. White did an amazing job with me. I love my results! I would truly recommend him. He's absolutely the best in what he does!!!"- L.R. / Google / Jun 30, 2016

"I'm a dentist (though now a pastor) and my wife was looking for an exceptional surgeon to do a mommy makeover after having 2 kids. You're probably reading this because you're doing research, so I'd like to offer the reasons why we choose Dr. White to help you make your decision. The short version is YES WE ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND DR. WHITE, WOULD CHOOSE HIM AGAIN, and THE PROCEDURE (TUMMY TUCK) HAS MADE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY OF LIFE FOR BOTH OF US. Please feel free to continue reading for the long version. Besides many other questions, there were 3 things we needed to know before we decided to go with Dr. White: 1) How satisfied are patients after their surgeries? 2) What makes Dr. White different from other surgeons? 3) How does his staff feel about him? 1) How satisfied are patients after their surgeries? You can read the numerous reviews online about Dr. White to see how satisfied his patients are afterwards. My wife and I are both very satisfied with the results as well as the care provided by Dr. White AND his staff. His staff is great. They deserve bonuses. We have no regrets or concerns about the procedure at this point. 2) What makes Dr. White different from other surgeons? To me, this is a very important question. But I will not provide this answer for you. Instead, you need to ask Dr. White the following question yourself: "Why do you think other surgeons don't use the same techniques as you to provide better results for their patients?" Being in the health profession myself, I found his answer to be true and accurate, and at the same time was able to understand his personal level of commitment to the pursuit of perfection for his patients and his willingness to be his absolute best. 3) How does his staff feel about him? I really wanted to know how Dr. White's staff feels about him because it tells me a lot about who he is as a person. Is he just a great surgeon but a complete jerk? His staff describes their office as a "family" and several of them have had procedures done by Dr. White and/or plan to in the future. They love Dr. White and speak highly of him as both a surgeon and as a boss. This should tell you A LOT about his skill, integrity, and caring nature. Is cosmetic surgery right for you? Could be yes, could be no. I can't answer that for you because there are so many things to consider and I'm not trying to answer that here. One of Dr. White's mantras is "Do the right thing at the right time for the right reason." Those are wise words. But if you are asking, "Is Dr. White the right surgeon for me?" There's no question."- D.H. / Google / Jan 12, 2017
A mommy makeover is considered an invasive surgery and most women will require an overnight stay in the hospital. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia and can range in duration depending on how many procedures are combined. Most women find the recovery to be challenging, but quickly gain hope as they begin to recognize the dramatic difference the surgery has made in their appearance. Full recovery can take between 6-9 months although most patients go back to their normal routine in about 3-4 weeks. Exercise is discouraged for at least 6-8 weeks post-surgery.
It is important to note that scarring is usually a part of this procedure. For this reason, it is important for patients to find a skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to perform this surgery. A seasoned surgeon will ensure that scarring is kept at a minimum and that the results are not only gorgeous, but also long lasting.
