Often a woman who has recently gone through pregnancy, childbirth, and breast feeding feels that the body she was once proud of has disappeared forever. This can be a serious problem, causing feelings of unattractiveness and reduced self-confidence and, in some cases, clinical depression. If you are unhappy with the way pregnancy and nursing have changed your body, you may benefit from a mommy makeover. Board-certified St. Louis plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Kofkoff is ready to customize a mommy makeover procedure that meets your unique needs, helping restore the confidence and appeal you may have feared was forever lost.

Common Mommy Makeover Combinations
A mommy makeover is less one single procedure and more a combination of breast, body, and facial treatments that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each woman. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kofkoff will carefully assess your body and listen to your concerns, allowing him to identify those areas you feel need the most attention. Based on these findings, our St. Louis plastic surgeon may recommend combining procedures including:
- Breast Augmentation to restore fullness, symmetry, and shape to breasts that have lost volume and proportion due to child birth and breast feeding
- Breast Lift to restore elevation, contour, and firmness to the breasts
- Liposuction to remove deposits of excess fat from areas of the body such as the abdomen, hips and thighs that have become misshapen due to pregnancy weight gain
- Tummy Tuck to remove excess fat from the midsection and tighten the abdominal muscles. This will restore contour to the waist and tone to the tummy
Because many mothers experience changes in the face as well as the body, Dr. Kofkoff may recommend injectable fillers or Botox in combination with your mommy makeover. These nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments soften skin, eliminate wrinkles, and produce a younger and more rested appearance – making them ideal for new and experienced mothers alike.
Mommy Makeover Candidates
The best mommy makeover candidates are women who feel satisfied with the number of children they have. A mommy makeover will not impact your ability to successfully conceive and carry a child, but future pregnancies will impact your results and may necessitate additional procedures.
In addition, to be a good candidate for a mommy makeover you must be in generally good health, prepared for a surgical procedure and recovery period, and willing to follow all of Dr. Kofkoff’s pre and postoperative instructions. During your initial consultation Dr. Kofkoff will discuss your candidacy and answer any mommy makeover questions you may have to ensure this is the best procedure for your needs.
