As a mother, you have welcomed many positive changes in your life. Unfortunately, for all the joys of pregnancy and childbirth, you also may have seen some changes to your body you’d rather reverse, such as sagging breasts or loose abdominal skin. Restoring your pre-pregnancy body—and your confidence—is possible through a combination of plastic surgery procedures called a mommy makeover. In Boston, Hingham, and Nantucket, Dr. Dax Guenther typically combines cosmetic breast surgery, such as a breast lift with or without augmentation, a tummy tuck, and liposuction.

Meet 'Dr. Dax'
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
With impeccable credentials and a personable bedside manner, Dr. Dax gives his patients confidence and peace of mind from their initial consultations through follow-up appointments. He established his boutique private practice in 2012 and is among the best plastic surgeons in the Boston area.
The combination of procedures in a mommy makeover may include a breast lift with or without breast implants, as well as body contouring options. Some patients also elect to include labiaplasty or facial procedures in their mommy makeovers. You make that decision based on Dr. Dax’s physical evaluation and your own goals.
How Is a Mommy Makeover Performed?
Each surgical technique Dr. Dax uses for the different components of a mommy makeover operation is chosen to provide you with the best possible results. His extensive experience and training allow him to offer you a choice of techniques and incision patterns based on your personal preference. For example, his expertise in endoscopic surgery enables him to perform breast augmentation using an incision near the armpit, which minimizes scarring.
During your tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Dax often incorporates liposuction, a standard technique that removes excess fat and results in a contoured abdominal area. When performing abdominoplasty, Dr. Dax places special emphasis on maintaining the original shape and location of the navel. Dr. Dax tailors incision patterns to each patient’s specific body type when possible so they are hidden in discreet locations.

As you might expect, the cost of a mommy makeover largely depends on the procedures included in the surgery. Additionally, the cost of any elective cosmetic surgery in Boston or elsewhere depends on the training and experience of the plastic surgeon and a number of other factors.
It’s important not to make cost the primary reason for choosing a plastic surgeon to perform your mommy makeover, which requires significant expertise. You should ask how many mommy makeover procedures a surgeon performs in a year to ensure that the surgeon has experience combining procedures in one operation.
A Reputation Built on Results

One of the primary benefits of a mommy makeover procedure is that you go through only one healing and recovery period. Dr. Dax provides a detailed list of postoperative instructions to assist you during the recovery, which varies depending on your combination of procedures. He and his staff encourage you to contact the office with any questions.
It’s important to prepare for your recovery prior to surgery by having a support system in place to help care for your children during the first 2 weeks after surgery when activity will be difficult. Most patients need to spend one night in the recovery area and require assistance at home for 2 days after their surgery until they can function independently.
You will return to the office for follow-up appointments in the weeks after your surgery so Dr. Dax can monitor your healing. His meticulous attention to detail helps contribute to beautiful results for mommy makeover patients, who tend to be some of the most satisfied of all plastic surgery patients.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long should I wait to have a mommy makeover after having kids?
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding put a strain on the body. Dr. Dax recommends waiting at least 6 months after you stop breastfeeding (or after delivery if you don’t breastfeed) before the surgery, so your hormones, breasts, and body can stabilize.
Can I have more children after my mommy makeover?
Plastic surgery won’t affect your ability to have more babies, but pregnancy will likely impact your breasts and body again and undo the improvements from plastic surgery.
Is a mommy makeover only for mothers?
No. Many women have not had a baby and can benefit from having breast and body procedures performed together.
Is it safe to combine procedures in a mommy makeover surgery?
When Dr. Dax creates surgical plans for mommy makeovers, safety is a top consideration. He has performed many of these surgeries and ensures that each one is safe for his patients.
Is it safe to have surgery if I am sick?
Illness can impact your safety and post-surgical comfort, so let us know if you become sick within a few weeks of your surgery date. Sometimes, a mild cold or runny nose won’t be enough to stop the surgery. Breathing problems can be dangerous, especially if surgery involves general anesthesia. A cough can create considerable discomfort after tummy tuck surgery. Read this blog post to learn more.
