Mommy Makeover Lafayette
Why Consider a Mommy Makeover
Pregnancy and childbirth are transformative for a woman, both emotionally and physically. Some of the physical changes from preganacy can be difficult to reverse, and may not respond to diet and exercise alone. A mommy makeover can help you regain your sense of identity and confidence after giving birth by specifically targeting areas of the body most affected by pregnancy (the breasts, stomach, waist, and hips). Renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr. J. Kevin Duplechain is pleased to offer customizable mommy makeover procedures to help women achieve their most beautiful bodies.
Mommy Makeover Benefits
Mommy makeovers are quite popular with women due to the multiple improvements they impart via one operation. Beyond achieving a full-body transformation, it’s also advantageous to have multiple surgeries performed at once, allowing you to save on surgical fees without compromising on quality. And since you’ll already be combining procedures, a mommy makeover is the perfect opportunity to incorporate non-surgical facial treatments, like BOTOX and/or dermal fillers.
Your benefits will depend on which combination of surgeries you undergo, and may include:
- Restored breast size, shape, and position
- A flatter, firmer abdomen and slimmer waist
- Reduction of stubborn fat in areas such as the thighs and flanks
In addition to these physical enhancements, there are several benefits of combining operations. These include:
- Reduced cost due to one-time anesthesia and facility fees
- Minimized recovery
- Restored, full-body improvement
“Nothing but great things to say about Dr. D and his staff. I went in for a mommy makeover – tummy tuck, breast augmentation/ lift, and lipo. He did an EXCELLENT job, my body is gorgeous again. Dr. D was always pleasant, professional, knowledgeable, just wonderful. And his nurses were equally as awesome. The nurse that I saw the most gave me her cell phone number, so that I could call her or text her any questions or concerns I had. They were just amazing; definitely recommend Dr. Duplechain!!” Heather B.

Mommy Makeover Options
The beauty of the mommy makeover is that it offers numerous options to suit the varied needs of different individuals. The most common combination of surgeries for mommy makeover is breast augmentation and/or breast lift, tummy tuck , and liposuction — procedures which significantly improve areas of the body most affected by pregnancy. However, I tailor the procedure to your unique needs and wishes, and we can select other options to achieve your perfect results.
Breast Lift or Enhancement
While breast augmentation is a mommy makeover favorite, augmentation with implants isn’t the only breast enhancement option — a breast lift can also provide satisfactory results. Breast lift (mastopexy) can be the ideal selection for women who are happy with the size of their breasts but bothered by sagging. We often combine breast implants with mastopexy surgery to achieve a more lifted, youthful appearance.
Liposuction isn’t limited to the abdomen — reducing fat deposits on the hips or thighs can take inches off and help restore your figure. Tummy tuck surgery can be customized based on your needs; we also offer a “mini” abdominoplasty that primarily treats the area beneath the navel using an abbreviated incision.
A mommy makeover can also include a facial procedure for those seeking some facial rejuvenation. Procedures such as facelift, fat injections, and even non-surgical skin treatments can sometimes be combined with other mommy makeover procedures to achieve a more complete transformation, depending on the extent of each.
Your Mommy Makeover Surgery
Although mommy makeover is a complex, multifaceted surgery, Dr. Duplechain adheres to trusted techniques and carefully evaluate prospective patients. The best candidates for mommy makeover surgery are women who are in generally good health, without any conditions that could add risk to the surgery itself or the healing process. During your consultation, we review your medical history to ensure surgery is right for you. Prospective patients should have a positive outlook and realistic expectations for surgery.
Mommy makeovers are performed using a general anesthetic, and the procedure can take several hours to perform. Our mommy makeover patients who undergo a tummy tuck will spend the night in one of the luxurious rooms at Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital under the constant care of a dedicated nursing staff.
Mommy Makeover Recovery & Results
Your recuperation experience after a mommy makeover is largely dependent on the specifics of your procedure. However, most patients can expect to be back to work and other light daily activities within 2 weeks–and often less.
Depending on the procedures included in your mommy makeover, you can expect your results to last indefinitely, especially if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight. However, the face and body are subject to the effects of time and gravity, so skin laxity and other signs of aging will eventually appear.
