Frequently asked questions
- Why a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover treats the tummy and the breasts, precisely the problem areas that many mothers have to cope with. The treatments are performed simultaneously, during a single operation. The advantage of combined treatment is that you are not out of action any longer than necessary.
- Can all treatments be performed at the same time?
During the intake consultation the plastic surgeon will determine which treatment or combination of treatments is most appropriate for you, and whether it is medically responsible to perform them in a single procedure. A (minor) mini tummy tuck is, for example, often performed in combination with a breast enlargement using implants. Cosmetic surgery must always be safe. This is why your surgeon will always provide you with honest advice.
- What are the most popular treatments?
The mommy makeover tackles saggy skin around the tummy and breasts. A tummy tuck can remove excess skin around the tummy, a breast lift will lift saggy breasts. If your breasts have become 'empty' the best solution is a breast enlargement using implants. During the intake consultation the plastic surgeon examines which procedures are most suitable to achieve the most stunning end result.
- What does a Mommy Makeover cost?
Combined plastic surgery procedures performed under intravenous sedation are very popular. It is not only cheaper but the total recovery period is significantly shorter. You only pay once for the intake: you receive a € 500 discount for each additional procedure performed under intravenous sedation, with the exception of a breast enlargement and liposuction.
- Is a Mommy makeover suitable for me?
A Mommy Makeover is suitable for all mothers, young and old. It is important that you are in good health. A Mommy Makeover gives the best result if you are at your target weight before the operation. If you are too fat it is best to lose weight first. If you are overweight you run the risk of complications such as infection, poor wound healing and post-operative bleeding. Your BMI (Body Mass Index) must never be higher than 30.
- How long does it take for the scars to heal?
It is true that in the first few months all scars may be bright red. After 3 months, the redness starts to fade and the scars become paler. In the years following an operation a scar can even change colour or form. To a certain extent it depends on how quickly and nicely you heal.
- Will the scars remain visible?
The plastic surgeon will always ensure that the scar is left in the best possible position, where it will be least noticeable. On the tummy the scar is least visible below the bikini line, with a breast enlargement the (small) scar (3cm) can be 'concealed' in the breast fold. With a breast lift the scars are larger and remain more visible.
- When will I see the final result?
The result of a mommy makeover is not visible straight away. The duration depends on the treatments you underwent. In general you are fit to be seen again after 10 days. A short while later you can exercise and resume work. The definite end result will only be visible after between 6 -12 months.
A Mommy Makeover can be performed under intravenous sedation or a general anaesthetic. The treatment lasts a maximum of three hours, depending on the procedures you require. Liposuction, for example, can be effectively combined with a breast enlargement. If you need a tummy tuck and a breast lift, the surgeon will first perform the breast correction and will carry out the tummy tuck in a second phase.

Anaesthetic and recovery
Most treatments can be performed under intravenous sedation. However it is possible that for a certain combination the surgeon will advise a general anaesthetic.
Following the procedure you will rest for a while at the Wellness Kliniek. After a mommy makeover you can usually return home or to your hotel the same evening. After a combination involving more extensive treatments - such as a breast lift and tummy tuck - you will spend the night at the Wellness Kliniek.
The recovery time for a Mommy Makeover is between 3 and 4 weeks, depending on the chosen combination.
Your appointment for a consultation
During a consultation you can discuss all your wishes and expectations with the plastic surgeon. He/she will assess whether these are possible based on your discussion. It depends on your physical condition, age and the result you want to achieve. The surgeon will compile a treatment plan on this basis.
The doctor may advise you to have the treatment plan performed in several steps if the combination is too demanding on your body.
Lastly the doctor will also provide information about how the treatment is performed and the aftercare.
We try and keep our waiting lists as short as possible. We can usually perform your Mummy Makeover treatment in 3 weeks.
