Mommy Makeover Surgery in Seattle
Return to Your Pre-Baby Body with Mommy Makeover
Seattle mommy makeover provider Dr. Lisa Precht understands that being a mother is one of the most rewarding experiences of a woman's life. Unfortunately, pregnancy often takes a significant toll on a woman’s body. Unwanted changes may include stretch marks, loose abdominal skin, loose abdominal muscles resulting in the dreaded “pooch” and pockets of fat in the abdomen and hips that no amount of dieting and exercise can seem to fix.
Today’s moms are realizing that they don’t have to sacrifice their appearance just because they’ve had children. More and more women are turning to cosmetic surgery to reclaim their bodies and their self-image. The mommy makeover refers to an individualized plan of treatment that will address your specific problem areas, allowing you to enjoy the body and confidence that you deserve.
A Firmer, Flatter Abdomen
Pregnancy often results in unwanted changes in the abdominal area. Mothers are often left with stretch marks, loose skin, and more fat in the abdomen and hips. The “post-baby pooch” is often a combination of excess skin and fat as well as loose abdominal muscles. If excess fat alone is the issue, liposuction may be performed to flatten the tummy and to contour the waist and hips. Women with loose skin may benefit from an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) where excess skin and fat are removed. Loose abdominal muscles can be tightened during the tummy tuck. Dr. Precht, a renowned mommy makeover Seattle specialist, performs liposuction as part of the tummy tuck procedure so that the maximum amount of fat is removed in order to achieve the best cosmetic outcome. The incision from the tummy tuck can usually be hidden under your bikini so that you can show off your new beach body! View Photo Gallery.
A Slimmer, Sexier Physique
Following pregnancy, fat can also redistribute to other areas that were not a problem for women before the pregnancy. Excess fat may accumulate on the flanks, hips, inner or outer thighs, arms, neck, or other areas. These accumulations of fat can often be effectively treated with liposuction alone.
Rejuvenated Facial Appearance
Part of your Seattle mommy makeover may include non-surgical options to revitalize your facial appearance. Laser skin rejuvenation, Botox and facial fillers are an excellent way to counteract the tired appearance you may have noticed from the lack of sleep and the aging process.

Am I a Good Candidate for Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover can help reverse some of the effects of motherhood on a woman’s body by combining some of our most popular body contouring procedures into one treatment. However, patients looking for a weight loss procedure are not good candidates for this procedure.
Good mommy makeover candidates should be in overall good health with a stable weight. It’s fine if patients have a little extra due to pregnancy. A good candidate must also have realistic expectations when it comes to their results.
During your consultation with Dr. Precht, you will immediately find out if you are the ideal candidate for this procedure. If not we are able to offer you other options.
What is the Recovery Like after a Mommy Makeover?
The time it takes to recover varies greatly among patients. Depending on the extent of the surgery, most patients can resume exercising and taking part in strenuous activities after five to six weeks of recovery. Patients may be able to return to work or doing light activities within a couple weeks of their procedure.
Patients may experience swelling for an extended period of time during their recovery. Once the swelling subsides after several weeks, patients are able to see the full results of their mommy makeover.
You will be given postoperative instructions to follow during your recovery to make the whole process much more comfortable and relatively quick. In the rare case that a patient experiences complications during their mommy makeover recovery, it is imperative that they see Dr. Precht immediately.
