Salt Lake City & Moab, UT
The goal for our Salt Lake City mommy makeover surgery is to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy figure. Women experience changes in their bodies after having children and breastfeeding, and these changes can affect the confidence they have in their appearance. A woman’s breasts may sag or she may develop folds of excess skin on the lower abdomen. It varies by woman, but these issues can be resolved with a customized mommy makeover treatment plan.
Before & After Mommy Makeover
Mommy makeovers are tailored to the individual patient and her particular needs. Depending on the case, mommy makeover could include a combination of the following:
- Breast augmentation to increase the size and fullness of the breasts
- Breast reduction to make the breasts smaller and lighter
- Breast lift to correct sagging
- Abdominoplasty to tighten and tone the waistline
- Liposuction to improve the curves and contours of the body and remove stubborn fat deposits
How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
Salt Lake City’s Mommy makeover procedures may be performed either in stages or simultaneously. Dr. Leland Chick may recommend that a patient recover from one surgery before undergoing another, or schedule them all on the same day, depending on the procedures and the patient’s health history. Combining procedures is advantageous because it requires only one recovery period, but it can also increase some of the risks of surgery.
Recovery for Mommy Makeover
Surgery is generally performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Mommy makeover patients will need to wear a binder or girdle for a few weeks after surgery to help the tissues settle into their new contours. Also, patients will need to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise until Dr. Chick clears them. Full recovery varies by patient, but typically it takes about two to three weeks before a patient can return to work. Swelling will take several months to completely resolve. Scars may never completely disappear, but Dr. Chick will make every effort to conceal them in inconspicuous areas (e.g., within the bikini area).
Many Utah patients who are considering a mommy makeover can have all their surgery questions answered by scheduling a face to face consultation with Dr. Chick.

“I am a recent (and enthusiastic) patient of Dr. Chick’s. I had the mommy makeover done and haven’t felt this good about myself in 20 years. I started to consider having a tummy tuck about 5 years post pregnancy.”
