A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures to restore and reshape your figure. Not only for moms, this strategic surgical approach allows women to enjoy a slimmer, sexier physique by reversing the effects of aging, pregnancy, and weight change.
A typical mommy makeover for Wichita patients includes:
- A breast lift or augmentation to reshape the breasts.
- A tummy tuck, often combined with liposuction, to flatten and tighten the midsection.
- Other targeted aesthetic procedures.
Whether you want to regain your pre-baby body or simply want to make multiple improvements to your figure in a single surgery, a mommy makeover may be the right option for achieving your goals.

Your Mommy Makeover Consultation
Rather than having several individual procedures over time and recovering separately from each, a mommy makeover allows you to emerge fully restored with only one surgery and one recuperation. In a single step, a mommy makeover can:
- Restore volume, firmness, and a more youthful shape to the breasts.
- Tighten and tone your abdomen.
- Smooth and slim your flanks and hips.
When you arrive for your initial consultation in Wichita, our staff will greet you and make you feel comfortable in our care. Our Clinical Specialist will walk you through what to expect and be available to answer your questions at every step in the process.
After your nurse completes your medical history, you will meet with Dr. Voge. She will ask about the specific changes you would like to see to help determine whether a mommy makeover is right for you. Depending on your preferences, she may recommend a combination of the following treatments:
Breast lift. To combat the sagging and laxity common after pregnancy, weight change, and aging, this procedure raises the breasts to a higher position on the chest and reshapes them for a rounder and more youthful effect.
Breast augmentation. If you are concerned about loss of volume, Dr. Voge may recommend breast implants, which can give you a fuller, more voluptuous silhouette. You will have the opportunity to test sample implants in a specialized bra to see how various sizes look on your frame.
Tummy tuck. Abdominal muscles can stretch and separate during pregnancy or with significant weight change. Dr. Voge can tighten these muscles and remove excess skin and fat, leaving a taut and firm belly.
Liposuction. Through tiny incisions, Dr. Voge can remove fat from the flanks, midsection, hips, and thighs. This procedure is especially effective on lumps and bumps that do not respond to diet and exercise.
Dr. Voge will take as much time as you need to feel fully informed and understand each of your options. Together, you will create a customized treatment plan to support your goals. You can schedule your surgery that same day or give yourself some time to think it over before finalizing your decision.
Your Experience with Mommy Makeover
Dr. Voge can often perform all of the planned mommy makeover procedures on the same day. Surgery will take place at one of several Wichita-area medical centers. Dr. Voge will meet with your beforehand to review your treatment plan and answer any additional questions you may have.
You will be asleep under general anesthesia during the operation. The duration of the surgery will depend on the number and type of procedures planned, and most Wichita patients will be able to go home a few hours later. Dr. Voge will see you back at our office for your first follow-up visit one week after surgery.
The specifics of your recovery, including any associated downtime, will also depend on your treatment plan. Most bruising and swelling should be gone within six weeks, and you should see your full results 3-6 months after surgery: a more youthful, slimmer figure in line with your aesthetic ideal.
Frequently Asked Questions About Mommy Makeover
How long is the recovery time?
The recovery time depends on the procedures you and Dr. Voge decide on. One of the benefits of a mommy makeover is that you will only have one recovery period for multiple procedures. If you are combing a breast procedure with an abdomen procedure (the most popular combination) usually you will be able to get up and move around the house. Normal activities such as picking up the kids, exercising and housework resume around 6-8 weeks. Recovery mostly depends on your body and how it heals from the procedures.
How much does a Mommy Makeover cost?
Much like the recovery time, it will depend on the procedures that you decide on. You save a substantial amount when combing procedures. A typical mommy makeover is around $10,000 for a breast and abdomen procedure. At your consultation, you will receive an exact price quote.
