What is a Mommy Makeover?
While childbirth is an amazing and miraculous moment for many women, it usually does change the look, shape, and size of various body parts — and can leave one feeling a little frustrated. However, it's possible to get a tighter, slimmer figure and improve your sexual and feminine health with the assistance of the mommy makeover procedure performed by Dr. David Hartman. This treatment uses a combination of fat removal and skin tightening to reshape the abdomen, breasts, or any other body part affected by pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding. Nonsurgical treatments can also be used to address surface irregularities, such as skin problems or stretch marks. Additionally, many feminine and sexual health treatments can be provided for restorative results. Contact Fine Arts Skin & Laser in Dover, OH, to find out your options for reshaping your body and reclaiming your pre-pregnancy figure.
Mommy Makeover Reviews
"I was referred by Nina who works at Fine Arts Skin and Laser to check out the mommy makeover services since I just had a baby last Christmas.

Loooovvveee this place!"- S.M. / Google / Jun 29, 2022
"If you haven't experienced Fine Arts Skin and Laser, you are missing out! From the moment I entered the office, I was greeted by the warmest, sweetest and most welcoming staff. Any questions I had were answered by qualified and highly trained personnel. What made me feel most comfortable, was the fact that staff members had personally received and experienced the services and treatments I was inquiring about. Wanda was incredibly knowledgeable about my procedure and remained beside me throughout the entire journey. Dr Hartman and the rest of the team were attentive, professional, calming and gentle. They coached me throughout the entire procedure. Initially, I was apprehensive to undergo a tummy tuck and lipo-suction while awake, but now that it's over- I am happy I chose to move forward with it. Using the Tumescent anesthesia and Pronox, I experienced minimal discomfort throughout the surgery and my recovery was much smoother as a result of not having received general anesthesia. I am currently five days post-op and already absolutely love the new me! I am looking forward to my lymphatic drainage sessions with the Esthetician in a few weeks. This will help facilitate blood flow and optimize the recovery process even further. My hope is to motivate and inspire others to also take the next steps to becoming a happier, healthier version of themselves. My only regret is that I waited to have this done as long as I have! Thank you Dr Hartman & the rest of the team at Fine Arts Skin & Laser!"- C.H. / Google / Sep 03, 2022
What are the benefits of a mommy makeover?
Pregnancy and childbirth are life-changing events that leave many women feeling unhappy with their bodies. A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that address multiple concerns at once, giving you a chance to restore your pre-pregnancy shape. Commonly requested surgical and nonsurgical procedures at Fine Arts Skin & Laser include the following, depending on the needs of the patient:
- Tummy tuck surgery
- Breast augmentation
- Fat transfer procedures (areas of treatment include the breast, buttocks, hips, and face)
- Alma Duo
Ideal Candidates for Mommy Makeover
The best candidates for this surgery are women who have gone through pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing and have worked to attain a toned, slimmer appearance through a clean diet with little result. In many post-pregnancy cases, surgery is recommended to once again have their pre-pregnancy body. If you are past childbearing and are dissatisfied with the side effects left behind, such as sagging, deflated breasts, wrinkled skin in the abdominal area, feminine health issues, or undesirable areas of fat tissue in the hips, flanks, lower back, and buttocks, this procedure could be a great option for you.
How is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
A mommy makeover is a unique surgery tailored for each woman by Dr. Hartman based on the specific body areas to be reshaped. A variety of procedures can be performed together — the most common treatments are liposuction of the flanks and lower back, as well as breast lift surgery, breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery. However, Dr. Hartman can also provide feminine health treatments, such as a labiaplasty, fat transfer to the labia, the O-Shot®, or nonsurgical sexual health treatments with FemiLift and/or the Duo™ technology. While FemiLift is a Pixel CO2 laser system, Duo uses high-frequency acoustic wave energy to increase the formation of new blood vessels for heightened sexual sensations.
The mommy makeover surgeries are performed awake and comfortably within our in-office operating room, taking 3 – 7 hours depending on the complexity. Your treatment plan might also include nonsurgical methods, such as an injection or a laser treatment to soften facial lines and reduce surface irregularities.
What to Expect Afterward
Once leaving our facility, you will begin your recovery at home with rest. Recovering from this surgery is generally a lengthy process. Walking will be hard the first few days, and a step-by-step, home treatment protocol will be required to make sure the incisions and sutures heal properly. Most patients find the healing phase can take around six months. Even while the primary recovery could take months, the majority of women are able to return to a normal routine within a couple of weeks. Exercise should wait for around two months. In the end, this surgery at Fine Arts Skin & Laser can make an incredible impact for women, allowing them to love the way they look and feel once again.
Mommy makeover FAQs
Is a mommy makeover safe?
Since a mommy makeover involves multiple procedures at once, there is an increased risk of complications and side effects. That being said, an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Hartman will take measures to minimize risks and ensure your candidacy before moving forward. Our first and foremost goal is always your safety.
What if I get pregnant after a mommy makeover?
If you do get pregnant after a mommy makeover, it could potentially undo your results.
